To the November 2023 class

Ok, this is the worst part of the course, the part where I have to say goodbye to such a great group of students.  You have to admit, we had fun in addition to learning probably the driest information on the face of the earth.  There is no reason … that you guys can't...

Class of September 2022

Did you know this about rentals?

Past student Agent A calls me the other day and asked me about any new changes about renters security deposits. A tenant can pay no more than month and half security. So if the rent is $1000.00 per month no more than $1500.00 (it can be less) to be deposited in a...

Congratulations!  September 2022

Congratulations! September 2022

Well now, that was fun!  Sort of like the El Toro roller coaster at Great Adventure.  We had our ups and downs, and even derailed every now and then, but you all finished the ride relatively unscathed. I'm always amazed how a group of people with such diverse...

Showing property

Dear agents of all ages, shapes and sizes don’t ever be a “Silky”. Some of you look up to me as someone who knows all and sees all. The soothsayer of sales, the poo-ba of properties and my favorite the forecaster of fee simple absolutes. This is furthest from reality....

#2 MAKE YOUR MOM PROUD

I love business cards. I collect them. I have cards from pre-zip code days. Some of my old business cards have my area code as 201 then 908 and finally 732. Many cards come to me from past and present students.   Some start with a photo of the agent with...

#1 WHERE ARE MY CE CREDITS???

I get at least seven calls a day for the same thing. The calls are not about my health. Not my kids. (They never call; I could be left in Atlantic City waiting at the buffet line for a month and not get a call). Calls are not asking me out for lunch or...

October 2017 Night Class Graduates

No doubt in my mind that you all can go out there and kill that test the first time... fear is going to be your worst enemy.  Remember, it's only a test.  No one but you will know the outcome.  RFQ/RFA (remember "read the flippin' question" etc.), don't over study,...
