I’ll choose in-person, live learning all-day-any-day over online learning, but sometimes the latter is just so convenient. That is the case with my newest endeavor, obtaining the ‘Military Relocation Specialist’ from the National Association of Realtors. I began the 1st step tonight after my regular work day, which involved teaching the last day of ‘Office… Continue reading July 23rd, 2018 – My 2nd Shift, Obtaining the MRP Designation from NAR
What a beautiful day yesterday! Well, it was until 5:12pm. Then it started ‘raining’……as they say. After enjoying the show “Chicago” at the Pitman Theater, I returned home to my doggies. (BTW, the show was positively wonderful! If you can….GO SEE IT!) For those of you who don’t know, I have 3 miniature dachshunds; Mercedes,… Continue reading July 16th, 2018 – Let’s Talk About Dogs
My friend gave me a really huge zucchini last night. I knew right away what Sunday Dinner would be. I spent the better part of my adult life hearing about Zucchini ‘Crab’ Cakes but never attempted to make them until a couple of years ago. I don’t know about you……but I absolutely LOVE them!

I’m representing two separate buyers with offers today; one is hoping to build their retirement home in Pittsgrove, the other is attempting to secure a bank-owned foreclosure to renovate & flip. In both cases, a… Continue reading May 21st, 2018 – There is always a ‘why’….
My day in Salem County covered several bases today: visiting with a client, Woman’s Club errands, an appointment to sign contracts with a 1st time home buyer, teaching, training a new agent. In my Real Estate travels, my favorite thing is to work with new agents, helping them to get a firm footing in their… Continue reading From Here To There…..
On a relatively quiet day of computer work, signing contracts for a property and answering questions about several listings, the brightest spot was the beautiful evening in the park here in Pennsville — ‘National Night Out’. The Pino Team manned a table, passing out Real Estate information. We also held a drawing for a 3-minute shopping spree at… Continue reading Real Estate Activities – 8/9/16 -‘National Night Out’
Governer Christie declared a state of emergency before the blizzard even began. He came home to NJ from the campaign trail and asked that only essential and necessary vehicles/workers venture out on the snow and ice-covered roads. While all of us in the Real Estate profession feel that we are essential, I’m pretty sure we are not. So….I… Continue reading Take The Time Out
“Extended family is great. If you want to know how extended your family is, just go out and win the lottery. Your phone will be ringing nonstop.
