One of the hardest aspects of being an independent real estate salesperson is deciding how to spend my precious time each day. There are only so many hours in each work day and if I am marketing myself properly (and I am) my cell phone will be ringing from morning till night. On busy days I can take a few dozen incoming calls that can range from a few minutes long to over an hour in length.
On any given day my phone will ring when I am driving my car, eating dinner with my wife, changing my babies diaper, or taking a shower. My phone rings every single day of the year including, amazingly enough, most holidays. People call me at 7:30 in the morning, before I have even had my first cup of coffee, and at 10:00 at night, as if am supposed to get out of bed and go back into real estate mode.

Just a quick note to express my gratitude for all of the buyer and seller referrals that have been coming my way in 2011. It really is flattering and as you know I’m doing my best to take good care of each referral. Even though the Tampa Bay real estate market is still in a slump I’m still able to help buyers and sellers meet their personal real estate goals. You guys are awesome. Thank you so much.

In my opinion the Apple iPad is currently a waste of money for Tampa Bay Realtors. The main problem is that you can’t run Internet Explorer on the iPad. Apple has made sure that only their Safari browser works on the iPad, thus rendering the iPad useless for Tampa Bay Florida Realtors who depend on Internet Explorer to access the Multiple Listing System.
Yes, there are other bells and whistles the iPad offers that could be of benefit to Realtors, but without direct access to MLS I think most Realtors would find the price of the iPad to outweigh it’s value to them. Let’s all hope Apple addresses this issue in the future.

We all know a senior citizen or loved one in need of some assistance in the home. Finding someone we can trust is never easy. I’m making this post to hopefully help some of my past, present and future clients in their search for a dependable, caring and trustworthy home care provider.
I’ve known Marie Klus for over 5 years now. I highly recommend you give her a call if you’re ever in need of some help. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and actually cares about her clients as if they were her own family.
While my own father was living at the VA Nursing Home, dying of lung cancer, Marie came and visited him several times. She wasn’t on the clock or being paid. She came as his friend after helping him with home health care in the past. And she baked for my father the most delicious rum cake I’ve ever had. Come to think of it…it was the only rum cake I’ve ever had. But it was very yummy.

Over the years I’ve been working as a full-time Realtor in the Tampa Bay, Florida real estate market I have met and done business with many certified home inspectors. While most do a good job and price competitively one home inspector stands out over all the rest. I cannot help but to recommend you give Danny Logue with Pillar to Post a call next time you need an inspection. Danny can be reached at 727-934-8339 or check out his company web site at http://www.pillartopost-pinellas.com. Danny is honest and extremely thorough.

Their slogan is, “What is your castle worth?” and with a few clicks of your mouse buttons they’ll tell you. Of course, in this declining Florida real estate market you might not like what they have to say, but if you have a strong stomach visit www.eppraisal.com. Search over 120 million homes for a free estimated value range as well as access to neighborhood information like schools, lifestyle, employment, local professionals, and more.
