So…tickets went on sale for Viva Aerobus! Check it out, mi amigos – muy facile y economico! The site is in Spanish, but even if you don’t speak, it’s fairly easy to navigate. Looks like, after taxes & fees, you can go round trip to Cancun for ~$150.

I’ve noticed that more than a few commentators are leaving 3 mediocre comments & leaving. I’m assuming this is to get the link juice. So…I’m bumping up the LLL settings to 4. This will make it even more obvious when people are just trying to game the blog for PR,…

So my original blog “Top 10 Worst Realtor Headshots” drew quite a bit of attention. Most readers thought it was funny, but it drew some criticism, as well. The negative attention was so heated that the word “lawsuit” was thrown around quite a bit (more on that another day.) In…

Bank of America announced this morning that they plan to purchase Countrywide for $4b in the third quarter of 2008.  It will be a stock buyout.  It’s highly speculated as to why BOA would choose to take on the troubled mortgage corporation.  Some speculate they are doing so for the…

Hi Eric! I want to THANK you for having the GUTS to post The 10 Worse Page. It is a sad, but true message to all of us who work so hard to be viewed (in the consumer’s eyes) a professional. Keep in mind, I’m NOT talking about consumers we…

I recently published a piece on my website titled “Top 10 Worst Realtor Headshots.” As a Realtor, I constantly think about real estate marketing, and the headshot issue is something that I have a pretty hot debate with my business partner about – he thinks that headshots are great, and…

We engaged Eric Bramlett to sell our Austin property after a previous agent not only failed to sell the property for more than a year but also made a huge mess of everything (including the property). Eric sold the property in less than 3 months. Being out of the state ourselves, we relied on Eric…

Eric represented me when I bought my house in Clarksville in the summer of 2012. I met him through friends quite awhile ago and we looked for awhile. Well, we looked for a really long time. We started looking in 2007 and I wasn’t sure that the market was the best time to buy. I…
