Olga Diaz-Potter, Real Estate...Simplified!

I can't believe it's Sunday night and tomorrow we start a new week.  Where did the weekend go?  It's a time when I shouldn't be complaining, but I'm dead tired and the weekend starts all over again tomorrow. It's been a week of showings, negotiations, uncertain clients, nervous sellers, offers, c...
What a great night last night in Pullman, WA.  The Palouse Habitat for Humanity held the first fundaraiser in our area for this great cause.  It was held at the Schwietzer Engineering Event Center and drew a nice crowd to this inaugural event. The Event included Dinner and both a Silent and Live ...
The nerves were surprising to me.  I was going to speak to children at my daughter's elementary school and I was nervous and excited....  It was Career Day 2009 and I was there to explain why I had become a REALTOR!   I was set to go.  I had my laptop turned on and set to a program where the kids...
Homes sales are up!  With all the doom and gloom that is surrounding real estate, it is good to share some positive information and statistics. Here is just a noteworthy story about increased home sales across the country. Hooray! http://www.homes101.net/news/n4492 Positive information for the po...
There is so much buzz, and rightly so, about the 2009 Homebuyer Tax Credit, that I went searching for more information myself. It almost seems like a "too good to be true scenario," but it's not! I am not an accountant, so I am not going to try to summarize all the details, instead I am just goin...
Even if you don't want to read this entire Wall Street Journal article, here are some important quotes and tidbits from it: "The improvement in housing sales and starts seem to indicate the market may finally be finding a bottom," said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. "I expect...
As is typical this time of year in Pullman, the FOR SALE signs are going up! Early spring (or should we still call this winter) is traditionally the time when sellers put their homes on the market because they have just taken another job elsewhere. It is also traditionally a time when buyers star...
It's a snowy day in Pullman, WA....again!  It's beautiful and peaceful, but I thought Spring might be around the corner....not on the Palouse.  It's a jolt back to reality!  Great day for blogging, emailing, and catching up on paperwork....not so great for driving.  There have been accidents all ...
Anyone in Pullman knows how long winter can be, sometimes through June. I am not kidding. As me and my family were looking out into our snow covered yard yesterday, we decided to get out of town and head 40 minutes south to Lewiston/Clarkston. Although there is not that much to do down in the Val...
Keep the Heat On!  I showed a number of properties this weekend where the heat was either turned down or turned off!  In these cold, winter months, the thermostat needs to be set at a comfortable temperature for buyers to stay long enough to look at the home.  It is understandable that sellers wa...
