Eau Claire Wisconsin Real Estate Search website find mls listings homes sell buy list (Not those f-bombs)    is for phony   Everyone hates a phony. From being disingenuous in your advertising to your writing and blogging, people just don’t like a phony. You don’t have to brag about being the top salesperson. In fact, no one likes a braggart either! I like coming across as a normal, average person. I think of myself as a nice person and that’s the image I am constantly trying to project. Of course being the top salesperson probably says a lot about your abilities to sell a person’s house, but that doesn’t mean they are going to want to spend all day, driving around in your car, while you blow hot air up their *beep*  F is for Featured Getting your writing featured on Active Rain or just...

  Getting featured in a national newspaper! And hopefully on Active Rain… (wink wink nudge nudge) I got a call on my phone on Friday and I was sort of taken back because the caller ID said Star Tribune. I thought for sure it was going to be some sort of solicitation. Little did I know it was! The Minneapolis paper wanted to interview little ol’ me about a single comment I had made on this post. I actually waited until today to say anything because I thought for sure it just wasn’t true. I just started on Active Rain less than 3 months ago. I would say I have been pretty active but up until this point I had never imagined that a small town blogger could get published nationally. A lot of people talk about blogging and wonder what they could be writing about. It is assumed if you are in r...

  I wrote about FSBO (For sale by owner) real estate advice recently explaining why if you are going to do a FSBO (For sale by owner) in Eau Claire Wisconsin , Altoona, or Chippewa Falls that you might want to consider doing yourself a favor and let a professional Eau Claire Wisconsin real estate agent help you. There are a lot of things to consider when selling a house. I hear many reasons why houses do or don’t get sold in the area. Often the explanations are quite conflicting. I have heard the saying “all you guys do is stick a sign the yard.” Yet, when people sell a house on their own, oftentimes this is the extent of their marketing efforts. Why is there such a double standard? If all it takes or doesn’t take is the sign then why is it so hard to sell a house on your own if you liv...

Eau Claire Wisconsin Real Estate Agent When it comes to selling your home FSBO (for sale by owner) in Eau Claire Wisconsin, Chippewa Falls, Altoona, and the surrounding area there are many things to consider. Do yourself a favor. Let someone else sell your house. I just started working with some first time home buyers this week. They came to me with a lot of questions and I hope that I answered them well. I also brought up other things to consider when they make their decision. That’s my job and I like to think I do it well. I want well informed, educated buyers. This is an important financial decision and probably the most expensive decision anyone will ever make. I think it is wise to do your homework and seek a professional. I am proud to be an Eau Claire Wisconsin real estate agent...

blog footer Eau Claire Wisconsin Real Estate Agent and e-Pro Realtor: I hear all the time of agents giving it up or calling it quits. Maybe it was easier to “make it” years ago? I don’t know. I do know it’s possible to make it and make it in a good way. I find honesty goes a long way. It also takes dedication and hard work. Hard work isn’t called easy work. If you want an agent who isn’t afraid of getting their hands dirty then give me a call. I treat all my clients with respect. I work hard to get their homes sold. I get results.

You can learn more about me on my Eau Claire Wisconsin real estate website @ www.YourChippewaValleyHome.com I have a simple philosophy to deal with today’s market. Work harder. That’s the difference between me and many agents. I am all about efficiency but I believe hard work can go a long way. I believe in the half day philosophy as well. I only work half days and I still get the job done! I work 7-7 or 8-8. 12 hours is my half day. Sometimes I work overtime. I work Saturdays and Sundays too! Why do I work so much? I work harder because it makes a difference. Hundreds of agents have given up this year, throwing in the towel. I don’t believe in giving up. No m...

Check out this new article I just came across. Dictionary site makes language a democracy Anyone can upload a video of themselves defining his or her chosen word LONDON - Not satisfied with regular updates of printed dictionaries compiled by professionals, a new Web site has thrown open the definition of words to all comers. Wordia.com offers everyone the chance to record and upload a video of themselves defining their chosen word in a complete democratization of the language that will have Samuel Johnson, the compiler of the first dictionary, turning in his grave. One early offering is the word "bungalow" — "One story house. Grannies live in it. Often with cats. Originally an Indian word." You can read the rest of the story here.  The website looks pretty cool too. This could be a gre...

Who really knows about Eau Claire Wisconsin Real Estate? Why not talk with someone who deals with real estate every single day?  I got a phone call today from someone and it was rather scary. They apparently read an article in the paper that says home prices in the area are dropping 30%. I found this hard to believe and insisted they were just plain wrong. It’s hard to tell someone they are wrong but they are. There is no sign of this whatsoever. It is just another case of bad information. You have to know how to read articles. If they say AP or Associated Press you have to know to look what city or state they are even talking about. Real estate is local. What is going on in one part of the country has little or nothing to do with what is going on here. We have seen all sorts of ups an...

I recently wrote about the pending Yahoo/Google ad deal which could have a lot of implications for just about anyone who uses the internet and especially those who use Google or yahoo products such as Google's adwords.  There was much speculation as to whether this merger would even go into effect with reports of increased scrutiny by the government. It looks as though Google and yahoo intend to just go ahead for now and see what happens. Google, Yahoo Continue with Ad Deal Despite No Word from Regulators Shane McGlaun (Blog) - September 18, 2008 12:24 PM Eric Schmidt says the deal needs no approval of any sort to continue Yahoo is grasping at any straw it can find to help keep its sinking stock prices afloat -- as long as the straw doesn't come from Microsoft. Yahoo and Google have ag...

  Seriously I know cell phones are bad and if you ever want to have a family you might want to read this. What really drives me nuts is when you see someone swerving all over the road and they are on the phone. I saw this just last night after meeting with a client the car in front of me swerved and almost went off the road. They hit the dirt on the ditch and jerked it back nearly hitting the car next to them. They finally pulled over to the right in the other lane after blocking me from passing on the left lane for almost 5 minutes. I pull up alongside because I knew what I would see… cell phone. This was just another example of inattentive and dangerous driving. I can’t even imagine texting while driving and then I read this article this morning. Study: Texting While Driving More Dang...

Twitter unveils interface redesign The popular microblogging site Twitter announced and launched a refresh of its interface on its company blog Thursday. Updated tabs, a new design customizer, and Ajax work on the back end are the major features of this release The most noticeable UI change is the move of the smaller tabs that were on top of the timeline to the right sidebar, where they can occupy more space, making them larger clicking targets. They also moved the following/followers/updates stats to the top of the page and made them larger, so now I can really see how deflated my follower numbers are. You can read the rest of the story here.  I thought this might be some useful information for those AR Twitter users. Let me know what you think and if it works good! If you have someth...

Did you guys down on theTexas coast see this? Is it true? Some Ike victims may not be allowed to rebuild Little-known state law could put Texas beach home owners in a bind GALVESTON, Texas - Hundreds of people whose beachfront homes were wrecked by Hurricane Ike may be barred from rebuilding under a little-noticed Texas law. And even those whose houses were spared could end up seeing them condemned by the state. Now here's the saltwater in the wound: It could be a year before the state tells these homeowners what they may or may not do. Worse, if these homeowners do lose their beachfront property, they may get nothing in compensation from the state. You can read the rest here. If you have something to say please leave a comment.
