St Patrick's Day

An Irish Blessing

Warm Wishes to the Irish and the Irish at Heart

“May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of his hand”

Home Ownership Is Still Part Of The American Dream

February 9, 2018

Millennials and First Time Buyers Hold the Key

The National Association of Realtors conducts quarterly and annual surveys. Their survey of Buyers during 2017 provides interesting insight into what Buyers 34 years of age and younger are saying.

A positive conclusion from the survey: “For non-owners, 8 in 10 reported that homeownership is part of their American Dream in Q4 2017.” From my past experience, the First Time Home Buyer is key to real estate trends since they generate the activity.

Please refer to the copy of the survey (below), “Aspiring Buyer Composition” for your review.

Do You Want To Grow Your Business And Your Finances? Discover Napoleon Hill’s Secrets

February 1, 2018

Think and Grow Rich - 2

“Success Comes To Those Who are Success Conscious”

Early in my career, Bob Proctor introduced me to Napoleon Hill’s “Think And Grow Rich”.  Since then, I make a habit of re-reading it every January.  It’s a way for me to jump start my year.

While there are several principles (secrets) that Hill espouses, principles that he concluded are the basis of increasing wealth, I’ll focus on a couple that guide me as I plan 2018.

One: A Burning Desire!  It is not a wish.  It is a dominating state of mind.  It does not recognize failure.  This is the premise of Hill’s study: your thoughts are essential to your success:

  1. “Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire …
  2. “Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire …
  3. “Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire …
  4. “Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once
  5. “Write out in a clear, concise statement  (all of the elements listed above)
  6. “Read your statement twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning.  As you read – see and feel and believe yourself already in possession. …  actually believe.”

Two: Persistence! “A state of mind, therefore it can be cultivated.”  According to Hill, there are four simple steps which lead to the habit of persistence:

  1. “A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment ..
  2. “A definite plan, expressed in continuous action …
  3. “A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friend, and acquaintances …
  4. “A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.”

As we embark on 2018, let’s remember that our thoughts, our desires, our plans, our determination, our persistence, and our actions shape the present and the future.

How Golf Helps Me Grow My Real Estate Business

January 31, 2018


In preparing for each stroke, golfers have a routine for getting ready.  My routine includes:

My Mindset, Setting Up, and Execution


Golf: my mindset is to get to the target.  Focus on the place where I want the ball to land.  Block out all other noise and thoughts (very hard to do consistently).  The target may be getting the ball into the cup or mid range on the fairway as a step to get to the green and in the cup.

Real Estate Business: my goals represent my target.  Those goals can be either long range annual goals, or they can be the quarterly, monthly, weekly, or daily goals which will lead me to reach the target/vision of what I want to achieve by the end of the year.  My goals are determined by my financial business goals.  Once I’ve made those decisons, then I know how many families I need to help reach their  real estate goals.  By genuinely helping others achieve their goals, I reach my business goals. 

That becomes my target.  That’s getting my ball to the green and into the cup

Setting Up:

Golf: to reach my target, I set up my posture, my stance, my foot position, and my club to be aligned with the ball so that when I swing through the ball, it lands either on or close to my target.

My Real Estate Business: The set up represents my applying strategies and tasks so that I help my clients sell/buy their homes.  This set up is a multi-faceted approach involving:

  1. Listening to what is important to them;
  2. Helping them search for the home(s) that best fit their wants and needs;
  3. Analyzing the market;
  4. Negotiating the price;
  5. Solving problems that we encounter along the way;
  6. Counseling them through every step of the process.


Golf: start to swing, focus on the target, keep my eye on the ball, swing through the ball, and follow through.

My Real Estate Business:  Key steps to my execution include keeping my eye on my clients’ wants and needs;  follow through and follow up consistently with each client so that at the end of the sale/purchase, there has been a WOW experience.

Remember: it’s all about them.

Will Real Estate Sales Trends Continue in 2018?

January 27, 2018

Norfolk and Plymouth County Real Estate Sales Trends

Look To The Past

In comparing sales trends of both Norfolk County, MA and Plymouth County, MA, MLS data reflects increases in the average sale price of single family homes: 2015, 2016, and 2017.  Please refer to the graphs by clicking on to underlined “Norfolk and Plymouth County Real Estate Trends (above).

Additional information that may be of interest to you:

1. Average days on the market decreased;

2. Number of homes sold in Norfolk County increased: 2015, 6048; 2016, 6265; and 2017, 6437

3. Interesting though: Number of homes sold in Plymouth County rose and then decreased slightly: 2015, 5534; 2016, 6170; 2017, 6135.  The slight decrease in number of solds in 2017 may be due to low inventory.

Looking To 2018

My opinion:

Sale prices will likely increase in 2018 especially due to the low inventory.  A reminder: low inventory stimulates a Seller’s market.

I’m currently working with a number of Buyers, many of whom are First Time Buyers and Veterans, and it’s amazing how few homes become available in the $300K – $400K price point.  Seasonal adjustment may explain this.  However, Buyers who are actively looking may find themselves in a bidding war.  Traditionally, all things being considered, for every home that comes on the market, there are 10 qualified Buyers ready, willing, and able to make an Offer.  That puts pressure on Buyers to make a quick decision.

If this trend continues, it will drive sales prices up.

Let’s Not Forget

January 24, 2018

How Else Can We Help?

Consider This:  Reach Out

Let’s Not forget Our Neighbors

  1. Check on the sick, the elderly, and the handicapped in your neighborhood.  Be sure they’re shoveled out, have food, and are warm.
  2. If you live in the city, shovel the walkway in front of your home. Suggestion: add some ice melt to the street.  Safety for the passers by as well.

One example: how we were personally helped during the Blizzard of ’78.  Our neighborhood was snowed in for over a week without electricity and access to main roads.  Town snow plows couldn’t reach us. We couldn’t even get off our street.  It was amazing how neighbors reached out to help one another.  We were without electricity and ran out of fire wood, our only source of heat. Neighbors realized our dilemma and shared their firewood.  We never forgot.

On a lighter note: played more games; neighbors cross country skied; children and adults tobogganed; family snowmen adorned the yards.  A semblance of peace and togetherness.

Warm wishes to you and your family for winter safety,

7 Steps to Protect Your Home And Family During Frigid Temperatures

January 22, 2018

Don’t be Fooled By Nature’s Beauty

Step 7: Avoid Falls By Taking Necessary Precautions


Forest Winter Lake Scene Snow Reflection Ice Landscape Frozen Frost Cold Nature Snowfall Desktop Pictures


Tip #7:  To avoid falls on icy walkways, spread any of the following products: ice melt, rock salt, or clean sand – all of which can be preventives.  If you have none of these handy but you have a cat, clean kitty litter products work.

If you live in the city, be sure to clear the street area in front of your home: shovel and apply any ice melting products.   Safety for all.

A few more months till spring.  So following safety tips and reminders can make life a little easier.
