Choosing a Realtor

This week we put a house under contract, pushed a short sale further down the road, started homework on a listing, tried to assist two clients whose transactions are hung up because they are dealing with the wrong lawyers, and did some more videos---typical kind of week here!  The one video that I gave a lot of thought to this week was a re-write [...]

Movin’ on Through Memories of Foreclosures, Mods and Short Sales. . .

Part of this week was invested in putting together video materials for the Straight Talk Realty University’s Distressed Property Academy division.  It made me remember all our clients and the tough path we walked together assisting them to move on with life after distressed property!  To use video to assist others now on that journey, I needed [...]

Straight Talk on Real Estate, Wall Street, Politics and Lamplighters!

We squeezed in a trip to the Phoenix zoo this weekend so this is getting published a few hours late!  Deb loves that place and I get a kick out of enjoying it with her!  Wow!  They have made quite a few changes in the last several months.  What a perfect and fun day to be in God’s beautiful outdoors surrounded by some of God’s prettiest, [...]

ANOTHER GOOD MAN GONE! CODI CODISPOTTI   August 14th 1936 – February 29th 2012

By Pappy Here I am again with a heavy heart with the loss of another very good friend.  They tell me his first name is spelled Codi but to myself and I bet most of you that knew him would have spelled it “Cody”.  But then that is a minor thing however it is spelled, Cody is Gone!  He fought a long hard illness and at the end he just [...]
