Real Estate Agent - Atlanta Communities - 303302



I have clients looking at properties this weekend so I called the agents involved with the listings. The first agents phone rang and rang and rang...Until I finally was able to leave a message. The second picked right up. I spoke to this agent about her listing that was currently under contract a...
Atlanta and snow don't mix well. While we do get some snow each year, it hardly ever amounts to much. But when we get those huge 2" blizzards, we can be socked in for hours!Seriously, we have very little in the way of snow removal equipment since we hardly ever need it. They do apply a brine solu...
I admit it. I have rental Aversion. This is a disease that afflicts many real estate agents. It starts with someone asking for help finding a rental home. It quickly progresses to an eyelid twitch, followed by a neck spasm. The ability to speak can be affected as well, with the afflicted stammeri...
Real Estate can often be a baffling business, even to real estate agents. To explain, I am working with an investor that buys a home each year, fixes it up, and rents the property. We are usually looking for properties under $100,000 that needs much work.In the past, we have found and made offers...

I gave her some information on how to get started and last night she texted me with this question..."So, ...
The Marketing Manager at my office has been overrun by requests from agents. This is a good thing as more and more agents are finding out what resources we have to offer them. The problem the manager faces is keeping up with individual projects. He now has a solution!The picture above shows a cli...
Interestingly to me anyway, over the past several months I have had a few past and present clients ask me how they can get into real estate. For a variety of reasons, people I speak to are restless and looking for another career. They believe, I think, that real estate is an easy way to improve t...
 Interestingly, sometimes Sellers leave behind things that they think the buyer might want, or is just too difficult to get rid of. For example, I have often seen paint cans left for the new buyers. In theory, this helps the new buyers identify what the colors are in the home if they need to repa...
Good agents pride themselves on how well they listen. Good clients should listen as well. Here is a case in point.I recently spoke to a good friend who was looking to sell their home and purchase a single level home to get rid of stairs. They wanted to go look at homes right away. I asked, do you...
