  • Legislative Successes


    Coming into the 2017 Legislative Session we knew two things. First, because of a Supreme Court order, the Legislature was going to have to spend significantly more money on K-12 education.

With a final budget vote taken on June 30th we can now tell you who the winners this session were - schools in our communities and also small businesses like yours.

  • Property Management Q & A - Summer 2017


    One of our property managers recently sent out a text message to tenants stating that she was going on three weeks’ vacation and not to contact her during that period. Unfortunately, she didn’t provide any backup instructions as to who to contact in her absence.

Our client (the property owner) is angry at us, as they now have an unplanned vacancy. So, where do we stand with the tenant and with our client?

  • Consult the Coach - Summer 2017


    Dear Coach: I have been a real estate broker for over 30 years. I am ready to start winding down my business so I don’t have to deal with this crazy market. The constant, multiple offers required when working with buyers is wearing on me. Thankfully, I have a fairly steady stream of referrals from past clients. It would be an even steadier stream if I called them once in a while. Suggestions?
