remax: Hot Weather in Blue Ridge,Georgia - 06/08/08 09:27 PM
Today in Blue Ridge,Georgia the tempature topped 90 for the second day in a row. We are not used to such hot weather, and hope it will not last long. Sales seem to on the rise, and leads are beginning to turn into customers and I am hoping some of them will soon turn into clients.I am sure of one thing and that is have picked up some new friends along the way. I have also picked up some new people to get info and advice on A/R. When the press is passing on bad news and you are feeling a (1 comments)
remax: Calling North Georgia when least expected! - 06/06/08 11:42 PM
This morning while writing a Blog, I got an e-mail from a prospect in Blue Ridge,Ga. I didn't know other people stayed up as late as I do, but I guess I was wrong. The prospect is wanting to come and visit a couple of homes in North Georgia tomorrow, and I am going to do my best to try to convert them from prospects into clients. I love ti when a plan comes togrther. (2 comments)
remax: Having a good time in Blue Ridge,GA - 06/06/08 11:37 PM
Today, Being Friday, I found myself without much to do, so I went and hung out at the office for a while and decided to go away. I found myself at a home on Blue Ridge Lake following up on a bid that I had put in to stain a large waterfront home for a very well known personality. He was a blast to hang out with and I am perrty sure that I landed the job. (0 comments)
remax: Who's the Boss here? - 06/06/08 11:25 PM
In sleepy old Blue Ridge,Georgia, I have had some trouble trying to figure out who is in charge of most deals. It might be the wife or it might be the husband, but today I had parents putting the decision of purchasing a home in the hands of their minor childern. This was really disturbing because my 16 year old daughter changes her clothes 3 time a day. I know kids are smart but do you let them run the show? I think not! (0 comments)
remax: Foreclousure in Paradise,Blue Ridge GA - 06/04/08 06:17 PM
Today started just like most days, I went to a large building supply company that is locally owned and operated and bought about $900.00 worth of stuff, which isn't a whole lot of stuff. The funny thing was that the owner stopped in the parking lot to thank me, this has never happen before. He told me that he appreciated my business, and went on to tell me about the 5 pages of foreclosures in local paper this week. He then said "What are we going to do?"This took me by total surprise, because he is own the (0 comments)
remax: Sharing the Love in North Georgia - 06/02/08 09:00 PM
Today, My wife(who is also my business partner) decided to start giving out referrals to other agents in our office. We have been blessed with more than we can possibly do. We have interviewed agent without them knowing it. We ask the several questions before handing them our business. If they answer correctly we are going to work them, if not we simply can't turn clients to them. The first question we ask is " What does your web-site look like?" If they say" They do not have one" or "They are working on one" We move out. The next question (0 comments)
remax: 33,000 Points and counting - 05/31/08 09:22 PM
I didn't realize it but I just past the 33,000 point level on Active Rain. In the county I live in there are only a few regulars that post blogs or comments on A/R, but the one that do take it seriously and so do I. It is almost like a competition to see who can maintain ranking, and I think that is cool. The best part of it is it keeps me from wasting time on non real estate related junk. I am happy to be here and I think I'll stay for awhile. (5 comments)
Atlanta. Blue Ridge, GA is the county seat of Fannin County, GA, and it approximately 40% National

granted the opportunities to be in the middle of no where, but when I am there, I love it.

remax: Re/Max Agents are family in Blue Ridge, Georgia - 05/25/08 07:45 PM
In the lean times you really find out who you can count on. I have had Braves Tickets for a month and Memorial Weekend is probably not the best day to schedule such an event. While I was eating $6.00 Hot Dog and drinking $6.50 drinks may phone rang, It was a good customer who decided to come up from Atlanta,GA to Blue Ridge,Georgia to look at some second homes. The only option I had was to hand off and I was lucky enough to get another agent to cover me and best of all the customer (3 comments)
remax: HELP! Realtor .COM - 05/15/08 09:27 PM
Today I was brianstorming trying to think of ways to improve my sources of lead generation and the thought hit me! Realtor.com,I made a phone call and the next thing I know I am getting hammered with a hard sell on why I should spend 10K a year on a couple of "sky-scraper" ads and maybe a banner ad while I was at it. The representive was a hard hitter giving me names of Realtors standing in line for these spots, but he was going to bend the rules and slide me in in front of them. (0 comments)
remax: When Your #1,Do you tell the truth? - 05/07/08 07:08 PM
Today at RE/MAX Around the Mountains in Blue Ridge, Georgia, Our marketing team had a meeting concerning market share and if we should share the numbers with general public. We clearly hold the #1 spot in our county and we can back it up with numbers from our local board of realtors.We went as far as charting ,graphing and putting it on tables. The question is, do we reveil this data in a print ad. Our of closest competitors really trys to manipulate this data to her favor while recruiting and in listing presentations. The funniest part of all that is she (0 comments)
remax: Caught up in Blogging - 05/04/08 12:05 PM
Do you ever get caught up in trying to come up with a fresh blog idea just to make your Google rank move up? That is what I was just doing! It is like being in a sales meeting setting there thinking about profound to say, when someone else is really saying something that might actually help with your career. I think that sometimes we miss the point(I sure do!). In closing, Don't miss the good stuff in life! God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth for a good reason. Listen twice as much as (0 comments)
