You know I was trying to lay low this week and not do much, I ended up doing two deals anyway.  When I want to 'lay low' I stop posting ads on Craigslist, I post over 200-300 times per day usually, so I do have a good presence on there regardless if I post or not.  When I stop posting, my leads don't come in as rapidly, but they still do come in.  In fact I find that te leads that come in are more qualified since these people are either really serious about their search since they have found me on the 10th page or whatever far off page I am on. Today, I go into the office and make some new ads up, since there are a ton of haters in my area and they have been flagging me.  It does take a lot to actually get your ad taken down, I think there is some type of new algorithm that Craigslist i...

Things are moving right along in our little office, over this past week there has been a lot of tension in the office as we have been going through some growing pains.  It's both interesting and disturbing at the same time.  I am forced to think about reasons why I am at DBB, both positively and negatively.  Does that make any sense? Jersey City has A LOT of stuff going on and it seems there is enough for everyone, over the next year we will have about 1000 new apartments coming online, this is great news for us as Realtor, as there will be more inventory and more inventory equals more business in the end.  We have The Monaco on Washington Blvd--twin towers near the Newport Center Mall, coming up in the spring.  There'll be a lot of great special to get people into the buildings.  We ha...

November and December are traditionally a slow month, as this month has proven--even I have only done about 5 deals thus far, which is pretty bad for me! Today I met several really nice couples, one was looking for for a 3 bedroom, two bathroom place at Liberty Harbor in Jersey City.  I showed them a couple of places at 9 Regent St Jersey City, NJ 07302 and 30 Regent St Jersey City, NJ 07302, and wouldn't you know it, the one that I thought they would like the least is the one that they like the BEST!  The one 'issue' is that they would like french doors placed into the apartment they like.  The french doors actually would open up the space on th first floor to be an actual living room.  We put it out to the management, maybe we'll get them to do it. The next couple was trippy, they wan...

I get asked these questions all the time, as I am sure many of us do, I just thought I would re-post it as I think these things are very important and we could potentially lose our license if we did answer these questions. A good real estate agent is very familiar with the neighborhoods where he or she shows properties. But because of legislation called the Fair Housing Act, the agent can't legally share all of that information with you. Why the restrictions? The government wants to make sure that home purchase decisions are based on a property's fair market value and not factors such as race, religion or ethnicity. In other words, the law is meant to stop agents from steering clients toward or away from certain neighborhoods. What can't a real estate agent discuss with a buyer? We aske...

There are a lot of changes going on at DBB Realty, some pleasant and some not so pleasant.  The broker's are really trying to motivate us, positively and to some negatively.  Irregardless, we do have a TON of vacanies at Liberty Harbor over at 30 Regent St Jersey City, NJ 07302 and 9 Regent St Jersey City, NJ 07302. It seems like we have have a new account, the buildings will be more for middle to lower income clients.  Quite frankly I can't wait to get the new inventory in, we will have places in Jersey City, Irvington, Newark and another town which I can't remember off the top of my head.

Busy day today, I am showing 349 Second St Jersey City, NJ 07302 again today.  I showed some people it yesterday night, now they are bringing their sister, so hopefully it's a go.  I had another client for that space but the credit was bad, we're still trying to put the deal together, unfortunately at this point I think the deal may be dead.  The funny thing is that as tough as the credit was she WAS NOT declined, they asked her to pay the last four months of the rent in advance. I am going out with another client at 12:00PM to show 225 Grand St Jersey City, NJ 07302.  They sounded serious, but when someone is looking 1.5 months out, you just have to give them the tour and hope for the best.  This would be my ninth deal in the building, I am still waiting to get paid on three from 6 mon...

She wanted a ONE BEDROOM downtown, on the water for $1500 per month, ok, so after I talked her off the ledge I explained that there was no building on the water with a one bedroom for $1500.  So we looked at an apartment at 9 Regent St Jersey City, NJ 07302.  Nice duplex one bedroom for $1900, then there was another duplex for $1875 on the corner with all windows as the side wall. I have to tell you I am more than happy to find the lowest priced apartment for my customer/client, but you have to be realisitic.  I am not trying to rent the most expensive apartment to you, but I am trying to rent an apartment TO YOU, so I will show you what I can within the parameters you have set. We will go out again tomorrow and look at places in Weehawken, there is a brand new building on Maple St whic...

It has been a great week so far, got a busy day scheduled today, hopefully close a couple more deals before the holiday.  I was lamenting a couple days ago about how slow it was, well, actually was I lamenting or just making an observation?  Regardless, it hasn't been a bad week overall.  I have several showings today in North Bergen, NJ and obviously Jersey City, NJ.  I have a new protege who has joined us from a competing firm.  She looks to be promising, she is a computer geek evidently as I am so she should do pretty well with us.  We have so much inventory in Liberty Harbor, I'm not worrying because I understand this time of year things do slow down, but unfortunately the landlords does not want to hear that.  Does anyone else have 'haters' that follow them?  I have several agents ...
