The Last Day Of School! - 06/23/09 11:47 PM
Today was my 8 year-old son's last day of school - hello, summer vacation!!
Here we are, my son has the entire summer off, and I just completed my intense 8-week plan for generating sales, which I should be kicking off right about NOW. Gotta take advantage of the prime season. But I also need to take advantage of the fact that my sweet boy is home all summer! What fun things are we going to do? Tomorrow, we will probably go to Seahurst Park and check out the minus tide. By the way, did you see the massive (3 comments)
What Your Home Is NOT Worth - 06/20/09 12:46 AM
**WARNING FOR AGENTS: TOTALLY UNORIGINAL YET VERY USEFUL INFORMATION AHEAD** I say the above only because I think it's pretty safe to say that most of us real-estate agents have the below information posted somewhere on our website. It really is an excellent summary of what we as agents communicate to you, the seller, during the listing appointment, along with the area statistics and comps(and of course our wonderful marketing strategies) to help you arrive at a price for your home. Whether you're in Week 1 or Year 2 of your property being on the market, taking a look at this (0 comments)
Prudential NW Realty Presents - Twilight Open House Season, Week 1! - 06/17/09 08:33 PM
For the next eight weeks or so, Prudential NW Realty Burien agents will be holding many of our listings open on Wednesdays from 3 - 6 pm.

Our goal is to get as many people/agents through the homes as possible, and sell our listings!! I mean, that's what our sellers would want, right? So if you happen to see one of our signs as you're driving by on your way home from work, taking your kids to activities or whatever, and are (0 comments)

Superstition, Prayer and Frustrated Pleas to Sell Listings? Worked for These Guys... - 06/08/09 01:32 PM
Prayer We have two agents in our office who, for about the last year and a half, have had what we've come to call, "career listings". You know, those certain listings that you really want to sell, but fear that in your heart of hearts never, ever will. These poor ladies - every week at the office meeting they've had to endure questions from us, their peers: "So, how's your listing in ___?" "It's still there..." is the usual reply. We can all relate, can't we? Well, this past weekend one of the agents(let's call her Sharon) walks in the door (4 comments)
Doctored Photos and Nonexistent Views - Buyers Resent the Deception - 06/04/09 12:22 AM
There's a phrase we sometimes like to use in our office that goes something along the lines of, "It's better to under-promise and over-deliver" than vice-versa. Sometimes I wish we would remember this when taking photos and creating the marketing for our listings. It's understandable to want to point out every single feature of the property and highlight their benefits. It's our job as real estate agents and marketing specialists to do what we can to make the property as appealing to potential buyers and their agents as possible. However, I believe that often times we can be guilty of not (57 comments)
