Fortune favors the brave?

Housing and cryptocurrency Let’s deal with the thing which I know almost nothing about: cryptocurrency. Here’s what I do know. I was watching a football game the other night, and the commercial for crypto.com came on. I didn’t know that’s what the commercial was for, because it was actor Matt Damon walking through displays of […]

Headlines Sometimes Make Me Crazy

“The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction needs to be credible.” – Mark Twain Fictions reported as absolute truths make us nuts – or at least I hope that I am not the only one that feels that way. Here are two headlines or “truths” in real estate that occur to me as […]

I’m Very Nervous
