patricia feager: Motivational Monday - Make It Rain - 05/20/18 11:20 PM
by Patricia Feager
 
 
 
 
 Make It Rain
 
Find your niche marketing
 
These boots are made for walking
 
You can walk, run, and jump in the rain
 
Or you can just stand still and get wet
 
Sidestep booby traps
 
Stay grounded
 
 
 
Make it Rain
 
 
The first steps are the hardest
 
Stay pointed in the right direction
 
You can get in touch with the rain
 
Or you can just dry up
 
No pain, no gain
 
Don't be afraid of the rain
 
 
 
 
Make it Rain
 
 
Keep your ducks in a row
 
Mind your manners
 
Pride of ownership
 
Life is priceless
 
Take inventory
 
Sink or Swim
 
 
 
I remember walking down the streets of Lucern in Switzerland, as if it was yesterday. The boots in the window got my … (5 comments)

patricia feager: How's the Market & Things to Think about When Moving - 05/20/18 03:06 AM
by Patricia Feager, 5/20/18
 
The first time I came to Dallas was for a Job Interview. Before I even got back home in Northern, Illinois, I had a recorded message telling me I was hired and Relocation Papers would be delivered by FedX. Relocation was exciting but there were many things to do, i.e., get my house ready to go on the market, hire a Real Estate Agent, make arrangements with the Moving Company that my Company arranged for me to use, fly back to Dallas, and find a place to live. It took all of 13 days to fly to Dallas … (16 comments)

patricia feager: Using Advertising Words To Make Sense - 05/18/18 04:27 AM
by Patricia Feager, 5/18/18
 
A Top Agent in my area created a Property Flyer. I noticed she had 24-bullet points on one side of the paper. For a pre-existing home, built more than 20 years ago, I just had to see what words she chose to market this property. Also, was it necessary to include 24-bullet points? As for advertising, what sets this listed agent apart from all other agents in the area? 
 
At first glace, the descriptions seemed routine, something I'd see on most listings; however, on further examination the whole list of words seemed rather absurd. Do agents really choose … (31 comments)

patricia feager: Thinking With Deep Gratitude - It's About Love & Light - 05/16/18 04:12 PM
by Patricia Feager, 5/16/2018
 
 
At times our own light goes out & is rekindled 
by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude
of those who have lighted the flame within us... 
-- John F Kennedy
 
I don't know what is going on in your life today; however, let me say somebody out there is grateful for the love and light that shines through you. There is strength in light and peace in gratitude. 
 
If the rose from my garden seems momentarily comforting, know it was meant to be seen by your eyes. And if it pleases you, acknowledge that others … (34 comments)

patricia feager: Know the Difference Between Dilemma and a Decision - 05/06/18 09:48 AM
by Patricia Feager, 5/6/2018
 
The weekend news: 
Nour Malas from The Wall Street Journal reported on May 5, 2018, "Hawaii Officials Step Up Warnings as Kilauea Spews More Lava and Gases." In the article, a resident by the name of Gary Hoffeld told the reporter, "Many make calculated choices to stay home and monitor the situation because they feel they are safe for now."
 
As I dwell on the news and weave together my own thoughts, my focus remains on two important words in the English language that has many difference consequences. For that reason, my topic today is as follows:  Know the difference between … (17 comments)

A fierce, dark storm blew through Flower Mound, TX yesterday morning. More rain today! The sound of wind, thunder, lightening, and Fire Engines reminded me that Spring is Severe Weather Preparedness Season. It's not enough for you to know what to do. Others need help too:

ActiveRain
All around me memories
Of people who failed to bloom
Or bloomed too soon
then quit
 
Rainers contemplate
The winds of change
Sucked into a cloud of hope
Active nope
nothing changes
 
--- Patricia Feager
 
 
 
Until now a blog has been a lifestyle, a unique personality, creative style; others, including myself have shared the current and interesting industry news, local expertise, including personal life stories, hope, thoughts, and dreams. Carefully or carelessly, words are chosen in content, photos, and comments. Does anyone care? Do members matter at all? Is ActiveRain simply about the Real Estate business? Can the process of blogging become obsolete and outdated? Is Social Media dead … (26 comments)

patricia feager: Is RED the new Stainless Steel??? - 04/25/18 09:09 AM
by Patricia Feager, 4/25/18
 
While visiting Elite Appliance located at 4901 Alpha RD #300, in Dallas, TX, I confirmed the elegance of the color RED in kitchen appliances is just as beautiful in America as I saw in Switzerland and Italy in recent travels. For more information about Elite Appliance, click on the highlighed/underscored word Elite Appliance above and the link will follow directly to their Company website. 
 
The color red was bold and beautiful. I was wowed immediately by a complete set up in the showcase floor room. There was just enough stainless steel to give me that "gourmet" feel so often … (23 comments)

patricia feager: The Psychology of Luxury in Marketing & Branding - 04/19/18 08:53 AM
by Patricia Feager
 
 
Silver or Gold
 
While window shopping in Lucerne, Switzerland, I couldn't help but notice the silver and gold shoes in the window. My eyes shifted to barefoot mannequins who more closely expressed comfort my feet enjoy most of all. I'm 100% certain, the goal of the entrepreneur who designed them was to sell silver or gold shoes and still my mind drifted as to how effective persuasive marketing is to consumers. 
 
Luxurious thoughts swirled in my head. What a statement I would make if I purchased gold or silver shoes to show properties in Texas. Could the purchase of one pair of shoes … (20 comments)

patricia feager: Flowers From Around the World in Switzerland - 04/18/18 04:02 PM
by Patricia Feager
 
 
Flowers are the friendly gift we discover
in the silent walks of life
--- Patricia Feager
 
 
 
The flowers in the collages I created above and below are Spring flowers from Switzerland. For me, they are like ancestors from an ancient world, the custodians of the earth for butterflies, bees and other useful insects. Plus, they are intimate when it comes to human connections. Through my eyes, spring flowers exalt awareness that winter is about to end and spring is in transition.  
 
 
Swiss flowers grew through stone masonry, in the forest, on trees in the middle of farm land, and were seen … (12 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 4/17/2018
 
Scenic views are glorious fleeting moments that can last in memory and better yet with great photographs. How you see the world through your eyes versus a camera makes a big difference. When it comes to landscape and/or action photography, I have learned that you may only have one shot, and if you have to think about it first, you may miss an extraordinary opportunity. Assuming you can do it later, at a more convenient time rarely gets the same results. For more discussion, see a few of my favorite photographs captured on my recent vacation to Switzerland … (20 comments)

patricia feager: Spring at the Dallas Arboretum - Guest Martha Stewart - 04/16/18 07:30 PM
4/16/2018
 
Spring at the Dallas Arboretum is a wonderful treat. The birds are happy. Flowers are blooming. Buds have burst into blossoms and bright leaves. As of Sunday, 4/15/18, it was lush green with tulips still blooming, new azaleas, a spectacular rose garden, and there is an array of vivid colors and gorgeous flowers. The scent of the gardens are simply heavenly. A harpist played her harp to familiar tunes, such as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
 
 
With late spring I was surprised to see all the Red Maple Trees which usually don't bloom until later in summer. Spring is truly filled with surprises! The Arboretum was … (11 comments)

4/12/18
 
Something near and dear to everyone in the Real Estate Industry is building construction. Lenders process loans. Interior Decorators and Stagers work their magic to increase the odds of buying and selling homes and vacant land. Investors seek out ways to make a profit by renting or flipping houses.
 
Real Estate Agents sell property. They have seen many different types of developments, including new and pre-existing construction. Through all types of weather conditions, they have trampled or drove through mud and dirt, and different types of villages, subdivisions, and neighborhoods. Never did it occur to me my daughter would introduce me … (37 comments)

4/11/2018
 
 
With the right people, technology, and life experiences, anything in Real Estate can happen well. 1517 Presley in Argyle successfully closed and funded during the final days in March, 2018. My client, the buyer and his spouse closed at the U.S. Embassy in Budapest. I was in between domestic and international flights, and the Seller was OpenDoor. 
 
This wasn't my client's first rodeo buying property, nor was it my first closing with this amazing man and his family. Every transaction is different and has its own challenges but when success follows it is a great feeling of accomplishment. When people work together … (9 comments)

It was an honor and a privilege to represent the Sellers of 1102 Wildflower in Mesquite, TX. They closed on the sale of their home on Monday, April 8, 2018. Ironically, it was the same calendar date and Title Company where they purchased their home about 20 years ago. 
 
I adore my clients. They are good and kind and put so much love and attention to details into their home. "Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts." --- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. 
 
Over the years, I've come to know my clients and appreciate their friendship. … (17 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 3/18/2018
 
 
Professor Stephen Williams Hawking was born on January 1, 1942 and died on March 14, 2018. I'm just waking up to the news and didn't even know he came into this world "300 years after the death of Galileo." Like most people, Stephen's parents hoped for a healthy baby. But to imagine a life would change due to ALS on that child's 21st birthday is unimaginable. And to think, up until the 14th day of March one of the greatest minds of all times lived in our lifetime is rather astonishing. The following quotes by Stephen Williams Hawking … (53 comments)
