Crossing a Line

If you have been following YatterMatters for a while you probably figured out that I try to keep this place fairly informative without crossing the line of being a self promoting opinion.

Well….. ok, I’ve messed up a couple of times where I have said that if you are looking for a Realtor® to help you buy or sell your home you can count on me to know stuff that helps you get the job done – please consider those lapses in judgement a senior’s moment!

I know, I know, you were disappointed but, I never said this blog was a bed of roses. However, in case it has escaped your notice, helping you buy and sell your home is actually how I’ve made a living for almost thirty years.

An equally important element to note is that in that time, I have been very lucky to become acquainted with some fabulous people who are also great at what they do for a living.


In the past few months I have been approached by some of them requesting that I make it possible for them to let you know who they are.

The decision to monetize this blog was reached after agonized discussions with a number of people I respect who have intimate knowledge of such things. The conclusion was that it was possible to keep the essence of the blog without being unduly influenced by sponsors.

Best of the Best

As of a couple of days ago you will have noticed the first of potentially many advertisements appearing on YatterMatters. The goal decided upon was to bring to your attention to real estate related services that have been vetted and as such, provide what can be considered the very best of the best of those services.

The intent is to fill this stable with advertisers that highlight the thoroughbreds in the industry – people who you can count on to provide you levels of professionalism and knowledge perhaps never before experienced.

Real Estate Services Advertised

Whether it is conveyance, lawyer, home inspections, home insurance, trade services such as plumbers, painters, electricians, financial planning, home photography, gardeners, home staging, web design, renovation contractors, builders, architects, or just the guy to haul your junk away will find their home to YatterMatters.

In the weeks and months ahead you may find a central repository of very qualified people who you can trust to do the best for you in a variety of real estate related services.

I know many who I will be approaching in the weeks ahead. However, if you have worked with someone in particular and who you feel is a fit for YatterMatters, have them give me a call to work something out – there is always room for top notch professionals.
