The many hats of client service.  The last two weeks I have had a couple of requests from clients that I feel are worth mentioning. I have a property management client who recently acquired a vacancy on his property. This property had previously been leased by some of his friends, so he had furnished it with a few dishes, a vacuum cleaner, a sofa and love seat.  This client states that we should just leave the items for the next occupant.  I advised against this and he agreed that he would just donate or sell the items.  Great he is taking care of it.  About a week after this discussion, he contacted my business partner and instructed her to place an ad on Craigslist to sell the sofa/loveseat.  She informed him that he could do that himself, however, he decided that she should handle th...

Well I just finished packing away all of the Christmas decorations, cleaning out the holiday refrigerator and trying to get my home back to normal.  While packing, I was remembering the fun we had eating, opening gifts and spending quality time together.  It made me think of a special gift that I received this year. My broker's daughter, Megan, age 10 came to the office several times during her Christmas break.  Each time she visited, she spoke with one of us and asked a lot of questions about what we liked, what our hobbies, etc. where. We all thought that she was just being an inquisitve kid. On the day of our office holiday party, Megan attended and she had a gift that she had made for each one of us.  These gifts were so unique and personal that it brought tears to my eyes when I op...

I am going to keep it short and sweet on this post. I'm an agent that markets Belton real estate (among others), and if I've learned anything about real estate, it's all about numbers. The more people that see what you have to offer, the more chance that someone will be interested, and finally, the greater the chances someone will buy. Now there's a lot to be said for targeting markets, and focusing in on prospects that fit the bill, i.e. ones that have the money to pay and are looking to buy. But I think that sometimes we get too focused on targeting the right buyer, or we spend too much time with any one particular prospect. That's where we have problems, we end up wasting a lot of time, and not getting the results we desire. That's where automation comes in, and that's why I love mar...
