Happy New Year: The Year of the Rooster!Happy Chinese New Year, this is ‘The Year of the Rooster’. Growing up as a kid I always enjoyed going to Chinese Restaurants with my parents. It was always a fun event, eating the type of food my mother would not cook and reading the placemats with the description of the Zodiac Signs.While we were waiting for the food to come out, we would banter how accurate the descriptions were. I remember fondly how much fun we had about the descriptions of our strengths and weakness  that the placemats shared. My father’s sign as well as my mother’s sign appeared to be spot on. How could that be possible? We did not delve on it too long, instead  we just enjoyed the amazing accuracy.Many people including my parents were not aware that there are differences ev...

Often I get asked what is my Outside the Box Marketing? Better stated: What is the secret of your success?Interestingly enough, I do not have an Outside the Box Marketing Secret to get new listings. Well with the exception of TWO. Needless to say my ‘secret’ is not something I feel I have to hide. It is the ‘same old concept’:Primarily I treat my potential clients and existing clients the way I would like to be treated and expect to be treated.I do not do Sexy or Risqué videos of my listings. I do not do Sexy Billboards or any other unusual costumes like Clown Uniform, Uncle Sam outfits or any other ways that I would consider degrading the Real Estate Profession.Now that you know what I do not do, let me share with you with what I actually do.So with that said, when I receive a contact ...

The year in Review: reflections of 2014 from a Greater Los Angeles Realtor’s Perspective! Posted on Jan 1, 2015 by Endre Barath in Observations about various subjects   The year in Review: reflections of 2014 from a Greater Los Angeles Realtor’s Perspective! Customarily I reflect at the end of the year on what has taken place in my life: at home as well as in my business in the previous year. Sometimes I share them with others, other times I keep them to myself. In 2014 we have had many changes in our lives and I thought I share some of them here with you. (Not wanting to bore you with all) Out with the old and in with the new, which is generally the ‘Motto’ of most people. In my case it is a continuation of things started and not finished in 2014. The year 2014 has started out fast an...

  The Benefit of a Best and Final Counter Offer!     As I was driving today I received a call from San Francisco. I was a bit distracted since I just got off an intense phone call on one of my transactions…Needless to say the person was polite and frustrated. Evidently I commented on an Ethics Question on the Internet on someone’s question, that no one else chose to take on and comment. As most of you know I can be controversial and I do not shy away from taking a position. I always add if you would like to reach out to me directly I am available. Clearly someone took me up on the offer.   Needless to say the caller was in a position where he missed out on a “multiple offer “transaction and he was frustrated and disappointed. The Listing Agent won the bid with his client. Clearly and un...
