What Happen to Intimacy!!!

Before my brain was like a phone book, everyone I knew had a phone number forever. In today's world everyone changes their phone numbers more often then they get an oil change. I know no ones number anymore. Then when you ask for someones phone number its worst than asking for their social security number!! I think my little sister is Verizon's last landline customer lol

What happen to intimacy??? How many times have you texted someone and they tell you "You had an attitude" why would you assume that?? Did I type my letters backwards, upside down, or I'm sorry I had my caps lock on.
Yet if I call you, you do not answer but if I text you, you respond immediately.

It is so impersonal to text someone "Happy Birthday" have you ever tried calling.

I love my smartphone as it makes life easier in many ways, but it also distances relationships. My goal for the next 12 months is to call all my friends for their birthday, starting tomorrow 06/10/2014 and if I do not call you guess what I do not have your phone number but I will get, or at least I will try....

New Construction Homes!!!! Why go Unprotected!!

When you walk into a model home there is a sales associate representing the builder, who is representing you??? Protecting yourself is always a good thing.  It is like going into court without an attorney and there is no cost to you!

Do you know as a buyer you DO NOT PAY YOUR REALTOR'S COMMISSION....
The model home gives you wonderful the ideas about what you can add to your lovely new home.  
How much does all of it cost???  
Can I negotiate some things??
Who will pay doc stamps??
Are there incentives??
Does your budget match your expectation???  
Do you negotiate on the base price or is it as is?  
Who will answer all of these questions?
You can enjoy the wonderful journey of buying your new home while your Realtor walks you through the process and avoids any bumps in the road.  This is one of the biggest purchases of your life, it's your money, it's your time, it's your future home. You need all the knowledge and expertise to watch out for your best interests. Using an experienced agent who is solely dedicated to you will make this a secure and comfortable transaction.
