Lease freakin' you out ... well you are not alone and if the lease doesn't freak you then something is definitely wrong. The lease as we know is a complex document and it is meant to be that way. It is full of legalese and I can say in my 10+ years of being in the commercial real estate leasing, lease administration and property management industry of reviewing leases I… Continue

I was recently asked about my endeavor, so I thought I would share with all. I am not an attorney, as I inform everyone before I speak on real estate, the information I provide is for informational purposes and laws vary from state to state that one should consult with their advisor for a particular situation as every situation is different. But over the years I have worked with attorneys and attorneys with me on behalf of the landlord on various legal matters pertaining to the tenant. Most of… Continue

When life situations overwelm you and there seem to be no answer, no end and you have no control over the circumstance. Think on those things that are pure, on things that edify and that uplift.

Inspite of the economy and whatever challenge you may facing today. Remember God is in control of the situation. And there is nothing that is too hard for our God. Let us not forget to look to him from whence comes all our help.
Let us not forget him in this time of distress, let us lean to God and not to our own understanding or the understanding of man.
We are more than conquerors through him, if we believe.
