I am pretty geeky for an old gal, I tend to be early adopter of tools and technologies and implement them in my Real Estate and other businesses.  Currently supporting Adamas Agents in their adoption of technology tools.

I've been around the internet and computers since I won my first computer "commodore64", as a sales prize, and wrote a little "if/then", for building out telecom system quotes.  Yes,  I was one of those women they threw out of computer systems education in 1972.

I served as a chat room host and TOS for AOL 2.0  in 1995,  and made my first "social media" online relationship to  develop a business connection that launched a business.  Some of those connections are still part of my "Circles" today.

A Serial entrepreneur,  I love Google Plus and learning everyday how I can implement it for fun and leverage.  Its all moving So fast, its getting harder to keep up, so learning to be more selective.

I am also a Partner of  a wine distributorship in Oregon.

Will the Fed Raise interest rates in JUNE?    among other reasons, this SPRING may be just the right time to sell, and reposition yourself in the home for the next 10 years.
Is spring closer than we think? Depending on which Groundhog you witnessed today, you may have less time than you think to get your home on the market before the busy spring season. Many sellers feel that the spring is the best time to place their home on the market as buyer demand traditiona

KEEPING CURRENT MATTERS,  Steve Harney does a wonderful Job of showing how buying power declines as interest rates rise.
Now that the housing market has stabilized, more and more homeowners are considering moving up to the home they have always dreamed of. In most areas, prices are still below those of a few years ago. Also, interest rates are still near 4%. However, sellers should realize that waiting to mak

Many believed that when the housing market crashed, so too would the desire of American’s to own a home again. Many reports have shown that, especially among younger generations, the American Dream of homeownership is still very much alive. Julián Castro, Secretary for HUD, recently summed

As a seller, you will be most concerned about ‘short term price’ – where home values are headed over the next six months. As either a first time or repeat buyer, you must not be concerned only about price but also about the ‘long term cost’ of the home. Let us explain. There are many
