Change. It happens. If there is one thing I know for sure it's this: change is inevitable. Some people are scared of change. I love it. I love change in part because of what it creates. Change creates opportunity. Some people would have you believe change occurs over night. These are probably the ones that came up on the short side of change. They just didn't see it coming. In actuality, change is always happening. When it comes to change, there are those that spot … [Read more...]

"IT'S ILLEGAL! I saw it on the news the other day" Said a real estate agent. She was referring to real estate aerial video. Where did she hear this?

Buyers Select HUD

Choice. It's a beautiful thing. No one likes to be "forced" to do anything right? I know I don't. The thought of not having a choice reminds me of being a child.

We can choose who we go to that restaurant with, again - no one likes to be told what to do. Having no choice simply sucks. … [Read more...]
