Dressed for success

 I often wonder this days if I have become what most people call old fashioned. I see great deal of Realtors in my area, who for lack of a better way to put it, look like bums. They don't seem to care about their outward appearance, as they regularly meet with clients in blue jeans. Maybe times are a little more relaxed these days, but we do need to at least appear professional in my opinion. I've never met with anyone on business terms when I wasn't in a suit and tie. I don't even stop into my office without being well dressed, just in case the situation calls for it.

 Again, maybe I'm old fashioned, but every person I meet with to open a door or do a listing appointment, is a job interview. And me personally, I want the job. So, if it takes wearing a suit and tie, well I've already gotten used to that.

Angry phone calls. Why they make me happy.

The truth of the matter is that over the course of time I have had more than one person claim that I am a bit insensitive. I simply don't seem to mind saying things that I souldn't, and don't really care whether or not people like me. Recently my… more

People lie? What?

Are realtors that lazy?

I hear a great deal from the general public about realtors and how lazy they are. It seems that one of the largest opinions of realtors in my area is that they don't really do very much to earn their money. Now I'll be the first to admit, that… more
Credit vs. Education

It occurs to me that every high school I have ever seen has an economics class. However, I have don't hear about very many schools that teach the importance of credit to it's students. It seems as if that would be a very easy subject to incorporate… more
The Horrible Market

All I seem to hear these days, is how horrible the market is in Columbia. Everyone seems to have their own opinion on the situation, so, at the risk of kicking a dead horse, I guess I'll give my opinion. The Columbia market is currently down about… more
