How to Make Money In Real Estate

FINALLY…  The name of the sailboat I just spent a week aboard in the Virgin Islands. It takes teamwork and a smart captain to handle the ocean and its temperament. There was “rollers” (high waves) and definitely a sense of being off balance as the boat rocked to the side and I held on tight. Experience, a willingness to learn everyday and a childlike

The Truth About Home Buying Expectations

Peaking emotions are common in the business of real estate.  After all,  buying a house is most likely the largest financial investment made in a persons’ lifetime.

Tune Up Or Lose Out

Do you take the time to develop quality relationships with forward thinking businesses or friends that can escalate your growth or do you hang out with the same old people? You are who you hang out with. Really, take a look at the five people you spend your most time with, can you learn from them, are they progressive or

Plan It Or Wing It

A plan is something you put in place to adjust – it sets intent.

Yes, that is what we use in real estate to value property but what about looking at our own lives and “appraising” whether we are operating at our highest and best self? Real estate appraisal, property valuation or land valuation is the process of valuing real property.

Money Habits

Things that money can buy, material items, cars, boats, trips, clothes, toys, travel, houses all over the world, etc. Maybe, we
