Agent does not answer calls only email. Is this how you operate your real estate business? Is it getting you anywhere? As I was searching for properties to send to my clients, I stumbled upon a listing which had the verbage shown above. It states that the agent will not respond by phone but only communicate via email. I know technology is great and that we cannot live like dinosaurs but not answering any phone calls is rather ludicrous. I called the phone number anyways and got a voicemail which states that to leave a message as it is an answering service. Wow! Is that high tech or what?! How can you NOT afford to answer the phone? With the fast paced society we are in, it makes sense to pick up the phone. Many consumers nowadays will move on to the next person if they don't get a live ...

Are you the TOYOTA of the Real Estate Industry? Toyota recently recalls over 2.3 million of its vehicles which had a gas pedal issue. As you can see, the news was widely publicized which hurt the image of TOYOTA. They are known to have reliable cars which require very low maintenance. This is the reason why they have many returning consumers due to their exemplary experience of owning a Toyota. I know for a fact that their cars are reliable because many of my family and friends owned one. The great thing about Toyota is that they took actions to rectify this problem once they realized the problematic situations they were faced with. They did what they can to arrive at a solution to make the necessary repairs. Toyota cited problems with "certain accelerator pedal mechanisms" and said it ...

San Gabriel is a pretty large city, but is divided mainly in three parts.  The main two sub areas are North San Gabriel (falling into the 91775 zip code) and South San Gabriel (falling into 91776 zip code).   North San Gabriel is more desirable because it has wonderful elementary schools and is closer to San Marino.  It has beautiful tree-lined streets and mainly consists of Single Family Residences.  South San Gabriel is a little more densely populated.  It has Single Family Homes, as well as condos and townhomes.  There are also apartment buildings.  It borders Alhambra.There is also a relatively small area of unincorporated San Gabriel which has homes that have access to award winning San Marino schools.  Not too many people know about that area and quite frankly, unless you have a l...

Getting a loan is an integral part of the real estate transaction since very few people have the amount of readily available cash to buy a home without financing. The first step is to fill out a loan application (1003). Once the lender has the borrowers completed application the underwriting process can begin. Underwriting is the process of evaluating a borrower`s risk factors before the lender will make a loan. The lender determines the ability of a borrower to pay the loan and determine if the value of the property is sufficent to repay the loan un the event of a default by the borrower. An underwriters main purpose is to determine if the borrower and the property itself meet the minimum standards established by the primary lender and the secondary market investor. once both the borro...
