Buy Alexandria Real Estate: Please Pardon this Blogging Intermission

Alexandria Virginia Real Estate Blog

Please Pardon this Blogging Intermission

Many times I wish there were more hours in the day.  I've tried stealing hours from sleeping, but that doesn't work so well, especially in a career that involves some time on the road.  To be honest, I can't even imagine yet what it will be like when we (God willing) have children.

My normal blogging schedule has been severely interrupted as of late due to several factors:

  • Becoming a Managing Broker (back in March) and overseeing an office of 40 agents.

  • Two weeks of teaching real estate pre-licensing classes from 5-9 p.m. every evening.

  • Being busy with a bunch of new business including 1/2 dozen new listings and quite a few new buyers.

  • Teaching blogging classes to our agents.

  • Making sure my wife still remembers who I am and what I look like! (This one is most important!)


Don't worry.  I'm hoping that by next week I can get back to some semblance of a normal blogging schedule and continue to provide you with some of the best real estate information and news and market reports about the Northern Virginia real estate market.

Thanks for your patience, readership, comments, and friendship.

Take solace that I will return after this intermission.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Good luck

Brian: The idea of blogging IMO is to get the kind of opportunities you are enjoying. Bloging is perhaps a means to and end, not a means to more means ad infinitum.

Stretching hours is our dream. Having sleep time shorter and day time longer is only a sweet dream.

I have not had much time for blogging either. I barely able to do my market reports. I can't complain as it has been a great year so far.

Send your wife some flowers, make dinner reservations and deal with blogging later!

Cute delivery! I am in the same boat. So busy with real estate that the blogging has suffered but none of us ever disappear completely do we?

Yeah, Brian!  We miss seeing you around.  Buh having met your wife, I can understand that if you have to choose between blogging and a big hug, blogging loses!

Brian... who are you?   Besides, the things that you mentioned, sound like good problems to have.  :o)   In regards to your wife... just text her a picture of yourself every 6 hours...  ;o)
