The Winds of Change.

 All my life I have simply loved a new adventure. Anywhere for any reason or without a reason, just as long as I got to go. It's not at all that I feel as if I'm getting old, because I can still go for days without sleep and I still love a good party as much as the next guy. But here lately I have come to the realization that I like my home much more than I ever did. I no longer embark on the unplanned journey's of my younger days. What bothers me the most, is that this does not bother me at all.

 I made myself a deal years ago, that I would never settle down and I would never slow down. But as time marched on and the world around me changed I realized that time itself did not know or care about my deal. Nor did my wife for that matter. Now I find myself calling home when I am going to be late and I no longer have the unsettled feeling I used to get by being "trapped" in one place. So now as I press forward with my happy life I come to one last realization. It was a dumb deal in the first place! Though, I must admit that all my wild oats have not yet turned into shredded wheat, the new calm content that I feel with my present situation can simply be summed up with one little word. Happiness! There I said it, I'm happy, and I don't care if you like it or not.

Are Realtors afraid of FSBO's?
I myself have heard several fellow agents speak poorly of their experiences with fsbo's. I know some agents who simply disregard them and make no effort to speak with them at all. In short, most of the Realtors I know avoid fsbo's as much as… more
My wife has declared war!!!!
My wife has now learned that the vast majority of the men in my family are not known for their longevity in life. That is, they simply don't live to be very old people. Instead the Boney men seem to feel very comfortable checking out somewhere… more
Still old fashioned.

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?
Recently here in Columbia there has been a gentleman going around to several of the agents and posing as a buyer. He is an older gentleman, which undoubtedly makes him seem much less harmful and much more believable. At least this is what I gather… more

If I had only a dollar for every phone call I have recieved offering me search engine optimazation since my site went online, the above statement would be all too true. I must get eight or ten calls a day on a slow day. I don't like to be rude, but… more
