Clean Kids Club - 11/13/08 03:51 PM
Are you ready to sell your home but worried about the kids rooms? You are not alone. One of the largest stressors in selling your home is having it ready to show and if you are family with children the idea can seem daunting. Rather than fighting against the nature, or should I say natural disaster, of your child sign them up for the Equity Group Clean Kids Award. This is a monthly award that I offer to your child for keeping their rooms clean. They will receive a certificate and gift for each month that they have helped during the (0 comments)
Helping Our Communities - 11/13/08 03:39 PM
As a realtor, we not only assist people into new homes, we also care for our communities. One of the many ways that we achieve this is through the Equity Group Foundation. This is a charitable foundation where agents and staff contribute time and resources to help local organizations dedicated to meeting the needs of our neighbors. Local charities, especially those that are smaller without national or federal funding, are assisted through this organization both physically and financially to assist with specific causes. In the last six years The Equity Group Foundation has invested more than $516,000 back to our communities. (0 comments)

Financial Security = Tangible Investment - 11/12/08 02:35 PM
We have made it through the elections and regardless of whether or not your candidate was elected President, we all know that change is approaching. These changes will not happen on January 20, 2009 when Barack Obama takes office, in fact, we may not see any significant changes for a year or more. However, based on Obama's campaign, some of the changes that we can expect are: •· Significant tax relief for middle/lower class, small businesses as well as Senior Americans. •· Improve job security by encouraging American companies to keep jobs at home. •· Invest in clean energy by providing (0 comments)
It's No Longer An Option - 11/04/08 02:11 PM
Home staging is no longer an option when selling your home. Whether you are staging yourself or hiring a professional it is a necessary action to take. The purpose of staging is to clear the room surface while also making it appealing to look at. Many people have difficulty doing this on their own because they are emotionally attached to the items that they have displayed. It is also difficult because many sellers have not fully accepted the fact that they will be moving in a short period of time and want their home to remain as they have it. Here (0 comments)
You Might Be A Professional If... - 11/04/08 01:36 PM
The changing real estate market has caught many agents by surprise. This is a tough business to be in with duties ranging between home staging and decorating to sales and marketing to negotiation and loss mitigation. When the market is good we are buffered from some of the more discouraging aspects of our business because the income opportunities distract us. However, when the market is slower we have to work twice as hard to earn half the profits. It is times like these that determine the true professionals. Professionals do not whine about the changes, they embrace them as an opportunity (6 comments)
