Just sayin'—‘cause somebody has to! The truth about real estate as an investor and as a Realtor needs a voice. Real estate is a great way to make a really good income; but all, is not as it seems. Unfortunately, most investors and Realtors have major egos (and that's ok, they need'em), so sometimes we have to filter and factor what is said. My job is to tell you the truth with no factor and let you filter!

This is NOT about REAL ESTATE!
Well, here I go again---after a brief break, I have decided to "commence" writing small pearls of wisdom. Tonight my heart is full of joy because our real estate family has a new baby--Eloise. Eloise Sue was born to a 2 nd generation agent of mine. For now, her sweet mother, Mardi Sue has decided to break from the real estate chaos and raise her "chillen!" A special congrats to Nathan, Mardi and Reis as they welcome this precious life into their family.
I guess, no I know, Terry would be very upset if I failed to mention he and Jackie are the proud, proud grandparents. Speaking of Jackie and Terry, I am so happy to have "chosen" them as my family. Not just because they now have a houseboat, but because they are good and genuine people. Jackie's "genuine attitude" is illustrated best in her innocent questions. I still love that moment in time, when she asked me if I thought houses had "quit sellin.?" Now, that one perplexed me! I decided to help her past this fear by responding in a way, that would calm her nerves. My response was quick and to the point. "Yes Jackie, I think all the buyers already have a house." She laughed, like maybe she did not quite believe me. That was 5 years ago and she looks daily for the elusive buyer.
Married to Jackie for 30 years,Terry is a Marine through and through--tough and organized!. Terry, thank you for your service to our country during the first desert storm. You are loved and appreciated, just for that, never mind, you are a big teddy bear with a slightly "sentimental" side. Actually, you are sentimental enough to be called (lovingly) a cry baby!" Today Terry, you have the right to cry those tears of joy and pride.
And--Yes, Jackie we all have A LOT more houses to sell--but not tonight. Tonight, is about family!
