I could buy Bill Gates!!!!!!!

 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 sometime when you say uou're not interested, you mean just that. Then you get the nagging " But sir, if you could just go online, I could show you how much we can help". It's great that they all want to be so helpful, but when I ask them if they would like to buy or sell a house, they seem irritated with my question. So, when I proceed to ask them if they know anyone who does, I guess they don't feel any better about my approach to the conversation.

 I can appriciate persistance, believe me I really can. My wife knows a Realtor, who had a restraining order put against him at an appartment complex because the manager was angry that he was propecting too much and taking away the tenents. I would where that like a badge of honor. The fact of the matter is, the is a difference in being persistant and be over baringly irritating. When someone tells me their not interested, I simply move on to find someone who is. After all, how much time are you willing to spen running in circles for no reason what so ever. Maybe, their time is just less valuable than mine.

Are realtors that lazy?

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
