The beauty of North Idaho

I finally found the time to start a new photo gallery site for Sam featuring North Idaho.  This is such a beautiful place it would be hard not to take a great photo.  I only have one gallery up so far, but would love for you to come by and look.

NAR technology report

For years you have all listened to me tell you how big a role the internet plays in all business, large or small.  Real Estate is no different and I urge all Realtors to learn more about computers and make use of these tools. 

NAR just released the 2008 technology report in PDF format.  It covers Social networking, technology sourcing, lead generation, relationship building, mapping, forms & contract software, transaction management,  If you are still a bit computer shy I encourage you to take the leap and learn how the internet age can help you.

Listings and Refis

Lately I have had several home sellers who wish to refinance their homes but are being told that their homes can not be listed for sale. The time frame that the homes need to be on the market has varied between 3 to 6 months. Needless to say this has been disheartning to many homeowners that need to sell. I have made a ton of calls and so far have 2 companies that will refinance homes while they are on the market. If you wind up with clients in this predicament, have them check with Countrywide and Met life are both willing to refinance mortgages for homeowners that want to continue marketing their properties.

nationwide financial leads. Scam or legit


I was contacted by Nationwide Financial services with a buyer referral program.  I am trying to figure out if they are legitimate or just another lead generation scam.  If you have dealt with this company I would appreciate hearing about your experiences.  Any advice you have to share is very welcome .

Thanks in advance,
