Mother’s are where it all begins.   By selflessly giving of themselves and nurturing future generations of ‘difference-makers,’ they make the world a better place. Happy Mother’s Day to incredible moms everywhere!

“Don’t just love me for my comps!”

April 18, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

About a week ago, I was driving in Central Phoenix and I saw a Times Square-sized billboard of a happy, smiling Realtor who’s a well known name in the Valley.  Next to his portrait, in which he’s fielding an obviously mission-critical phone call with a clipboard tucked under his arm, and yet still managing to give a thumbs-up and toothy-grin for the camera, was a simple phrase: “What’s...

What is a home warranty?

August 14, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

I’ve been a big believer in home warranties since I began my career in real estate, which is why it’s surprising to me how many people aren’t aware of exactly what a home warranty is or does.  While some, particularly those from other countries, are often completely unfamiliar with the concept, others tend to confuse it with home insurance. Home insurance is a very different protective...

Condos are a Different Animal

July 17, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Very often, I work with buyers who are more focused on specific property characteristics (e.g. square footage, # of rooms, interior upgrades, price, location, etc) than the type of property they purchase.  They’d equally entertain a house or a condo with no strong preference either way.  This is particularly true of seasonal “snow bird” residents, who tend to have stronger preferences...

Trust in Justin Standard of Service: I don’t take phone calls!

August 16, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

WHAT?! You read that right.  I DON’T TAKE PHONE CALLS…while I’m in appointments. Have you ever scheduled an appointment to meet with someone only to find they spend more time on the phone and answering the phone during your appointment than they do actually meeting with you?  It’s a personal pet peeve of mine that I’ve addressed in my business. Could the caller be a...
