I had a call from a customer who wanted to get in to see a rental property. Easy enough, right? I called for showing instructions and was told i had to speak to the Property Manager. I left her a message. The next day, the customer asked again and I called for the Property Manager and left messag...

Ah, memories of a young lad walking from house to house, looking to make a little pocket change. Fast forward to present day and many neighborhoods are looking shabby and homeowners are up in arms at the appearance of their neighbors houses due to foreclosures and bank owned properties. A simple ...

As a Trainer, I have worked with a multitude of people. Young and old, many cultures and many different backgrounds. The question is, can everyone be trained? When it comes to technical skills or a computer program, there are usually set ways to perform a task. When it comes to soft skills such a...

OR, are you the type of agent that says, "the market is down, woe is me". Either way, the numbers have not been lying. There is truth...

As a new agent, part of my training included learning how to do a CMA. This, without a doubt, was the most difficult part of the business for me as nobody had a fool proof way to do it.

Technology. We love it at times and we hate it other times. It works for us and against us. The pro technology people, of which I consider myself, try to convey to others how it saves time, money and eases the way in which we do business. The "Old School" people will tell you that we are moving t...

Sometimes another agent can really add undue stress to a deal. They say that perception is reality. If you perceive something to be true, whether it is or isn't doesn't matter as that is your perception! I had a deal recently where the other agent was not into working with her people.

Just was watching an episode of "Flip This House" on the A&E network. When they pulled back the carpet, they discovered a huge crack in the slab that went all the way through. Next thing you know they are bringing out a team to dig holes, put in hydralics and concrete tubes and level this house b...
