Did you ever wake up having something you know you should do, but you don’t feel like doing it? Yeah, me too. I’m having a big glass of sweet tea, what are you drinking today?

I read somewhere that lots of us have a very negative view of the words “school” and “learn” and “class.” And yet, “Back to School” tends to fill

us with a certain nostalgia, doesn’t it? Whether you’re a parent and that nostalgia is “Thank goodness the kids are out of the house for a while,” or you’re someone without kids enduring the Facebook stream of “first day of school” pics, there’s something in the air when we think about back to school.

Back to School ..no no. Still in school.

I don’t love school. I loathe it. I love learning. I love being able to put that knowledge to work and see the fruits of my labor. I love helping to teach someone else – watching the light bulb go off over their head, guiding them through their problem, and watch the smile and nod as they “get it”.

My wife Billie and I have always been education junkies. Things are always progressing and technology is going full force and many times changes before we have a chance to fully learn it.

Whats this got to do with my Mohave County Real Estate

In real estate, things have changed dramatically. We recently moved, and I have boxes and boxes… and boxes of old MLS books going back like 30 years. These were the books our Multiple Listing Service would put out that had all of our listings in it. We didn’t go online to some fancy website put in a few parameters and instantly have a list of homes that meet our client’s criteria. We had BOOKS. We had to READ. We got to flip through books to find properties. We actually had to call and converse with other agents about details. Yeah, things have really changed.

But when problems occur during the course of a transaction, without the knowledge and experience to handle the situation, it can get out of hand quick. Unlike the movies, real estate isn’t all about going to lunch and having an open house once in a while. We take care of some serious situations and these situations can make or break your real estate transaction. How’s that saying go?
