Over-Holidaying vs. Over Holidays

Man oh man. This time of year is absolutely nuts. Everyone has their holiday gathering. All the stresses of dirty Santa, ornament swap, secret Santa, draw names, buy everyone a gift, include a gift receipt, stress about whether they will like it, host gifts, potlucks, sales, will Amazon deliver in time, is this the year […]


You never know when your words will come back to you. I talk a lot. Like, A LOT. I also type these emails pretty much every week. Sometimes they are about real estate but mostly, they are about life and observations and lessons learned. And, mostly, they are good and are nuggets worth sharing. I […]

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? OR, do you use unapproachable words and make people feel dumb? Do you swear a lot? Do you use disrespectful slang all the time? Do you […]

Safe Failing

I was having a conversation with a friend the other day about all the ailments of the “world we live in now-a-days” and had an epiphany. One of the main problems we face is that my generation, probably one older and definitely the ones younger than me are systematically eliminating the opportunity for our kids […]
