Perspective is important. I recently saw the following posted on a Realtor friend’s Facebook page.  Perspective: In 1971 mortgage rates were 7.33%. If you waited to purchase a home until rates went down, you waited until 1993. You would have rented for 22 years. Meanwhile, the value of real estate QUADRUPLED! I found this information both […]

Words Matter

The words you use matter. They determine how people see you and remember you. Do you strive to use the most precise words? Do you settle for simple, lazy words?
