NEWFLASH:  Real estate is not a science!  If it was, things would be more precise and things would always go as planned.  I love that about science!  I know that if I do things a certain way, the reaction will be the same each time.   In real estate, things are far from science.  You can have a g...

Being a strong internet marketing person, often times I get calls to list homes out of my area.  One of the first questions I get from these folks is how are you going to market my home if you are 45 minutes away?  Luckily, its not hard to answer.  I explain how we use a multifaceted marketing p...

Over time, the way homes have been listed and sold has changed quite a bit.  Ask 10 people their opinion about real estate sales and you will likely get 10 different answers.  Truth be told, everyone likes to talk about the subject it seems! One particular topic I have strong opinions about is pr...

Picture this...I get an offer from an agent via email.  The offer is 20MB and in pieces so it's virtually impossible to open on a mobile device.  Once I get to a computer to view it, I see the agent has hand written the offer, written "Owner of Record" as the seller and left out numerous spots on...

Like many of my fellow agents, I like to follow various online groups on Facebook and Activerain etc..  It's a great way to pick up a few ideas and solutions to challenges facing both my clients and similar.  The other day, I came across a Facebook group about lead generation and "scripts"  Now i...

The thing is, as we grow older and hopefully wiser in this business, we learn that telling the truth i...

I’ve  often thought it would be a great concept for a Reality TV show to have a crew watch my assistant and I as we try to find homes and schedule showings for our buyers.  You would not believe some of the things that we see online as far as listings go.  If you have ever taken the time to look ...

So often when I go to list a home, folks ask me what they should do to improve their sales price.  The answer seems to be ever changing.  It used to be that you could equate almost every dollar spent on a renovation as money right back into your pocket and then some. Take for example a kitchen re...

I've said this often. There should be a reality series based off of agents trying to view and make appointments for listings. I often talk (yell) at the computer screen when previewing homes online and making appts. You may wonder why. Quite honestly, I am frustrated by the way many agents fail t...

As a REALTOR, one of my jobs is to help pick out homes fro buyers to potentially purchase.  Luckily, I have a broad knowledge of homes, locations and similar to help guide me through this process.  Unfortunately, for the consumer, they have to rely solely on the data that is input into the MLS s...
