Celebrating 25 Years As A REALTOR®

It is hard to believe that I am celebrating 25 years as a REALTOR® today. Wow. According to the Arizona Department of Real Estate, my real estate license was issued on 9/1/1992. If my math is correct, that was 25 years ago. Doing a little more math allows me to conclude that I have been a REALTOR® for more of my life than I have not… While so much of my […]

AZ Real Estate Commissioner Prefers Clear and Prominent

I saw this video from our friends at the Arizona Association of REALTORS recently where real estate commissioner Judy Lowe discusses advertising rules for real estate web sites.

In my opinion, it is best for agents to “Own their own content.” Of course, not everyone agrees with that statement and that’s ok. Heck, I’ll freely admit that it does not apply to all REALTORS. To clarify, I’m not talking about the stuff in your home, I am talking […]

home seller must disclose

Home Seller Must Disclose Material Facts

It’s true… A home seller must disclose material facts when selling a home. Unfortumately, not all home sellers think it is a good idea. I often wonder who people think they are trying to protect when we see agents put “No SPDS, No CLUE” in the public or private remarks of our MLS system. It baffles my mind trying to figure out why someone would NOT want to disclose material […]
