Real Estate Agent - Resource One Realty, LLC
This Sunday our state realtor's convention begins in the Wisconsin Dells.  For those of you not familiar with the Dells, it is a very picturesque, vacation playground.  We have our convention at one of the resorts. I really enjoy the convention.  This year, I am completing my continuing ed.  I al...
A few months ago, I found a property for my buyers that they fell in love with at first sight.  I had their duplex listed but they were financially secure enough to buy a property without as home sale.  After a discussion with the listing agent, we discovered that the property was in foreclosure ...
When I list a property I go through what I call my "do and do not list".  One big "do not"' on my list, is lighting candles for showings.  I was showing a home last week that had a lit candle in every room.  The fragrances were so overwhelming, we couldn't stay in the house very long without snee...
The following comments are strictly my opinion based on my observations. Dear Sellers, When I've scheduled a showing of your house with your agent, please don't be there.  Recently, I've had a rash of showings where the owners have been home.  This is especially true of the unrepresented seller (...
Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know that I'm in the middle of downsizing my mother.  No I'm not making her shorter.  I'm just trying to get her to part with some of her prized possessions before she moves into her new home. We have left the dumpster phase and are now entering th...
I just finished showing 15 houses to first time home buyers.  I just want to publicly thank the agents that took the time to call me with additional information on the properties.  Many of the real estate companies in the Green Bay area have call desks.  The people that man these desks set up sho...
"It's a buyer's market" is all they hear yet when it comes down to it, maybe it's not.  The first time home buyers of today are of the generation that thrives on information.  They research on line.  They talk to people to gather information.   Most of them do their homework before they ever cont...
Recently, my siblings and I had a discussion with my mother concerning "downsizing".  First of all if you are a regular reader of my blog, thank you.  Secondly, you've read about the process being a lot of work. As an update, you'll be glad to know that everything for the most part is going smoot...
Recently, I had a telephone conversation with one of my agents who is showing a HUD home to a first time home buyer.  She, herself, has had limited experience with the HUD process.  Our discussion brought the HUD home to top of mind for me.  I have lost track of what is available. I explained to ...
In my opinion, every real estate agent should, at some point, become a seller.  It is standard procedure for me to go to my sellers and gently but firmly tell them what they can do to help sell their homes, especially if they are downsizing.  Clean up this, repair that, etc., etc.  Sometimes I ge...
