I have lived in Davis for 10+ years and love it.  However, there isn't much in terms of an "entry level" or first time home buyer market - unless you would consider a condo as your first home (an option).  If you want a newer or larger home under $350k, there are other feasible alternatives. Ther...

What a day!  I have been working with a buyer for years (you know how they can be) and get an email regarding a listing I sent him (no joke...the day before).  He sends me an email and asks if I recommend it - - he and his girlfriend went to see the models this weekend (what!?!).  I call the sale...

I represent primarily buyers and cover a couple of areas of which i'm very active in.  It drives me crazy when buyer's say "we decided to use a local agent." They don't ask how many transactions you've closed, how successful you've been in negotiations, how good your references are, nothing.  Is ...

Lately i've taken to asking internet lead clients right off the bat..."are you working with another realtor?"  Today, I decided to ask a client that question and tag onto it..."I don't want to interfere with the work a fellow agent may be doing for you."  My thought is that maybe some of the inte...

We've had some great dialogue about low-ball offers and how to deal with them.  In many cases, it will come down to setting your clients' expectations.  Remember when you used to take a buyer and and warn them that the house they see today and want to sleep on tonight will probably go to the buy ...

First a disclaimer - this is just poking fun at something that causes all of us mortal realtors out their pain and frustration at some point in our careers (hopefully not too often)Oh come on, admit it...it has happened to the best of us.  Have you ever received an email that goes something like ...
