In Real Estate.....Something is Better Than NOTHING - 12/28/11 06:06 PM
After working on a couple of transactions through Relocation Companies who refer clients to me, I have no qualms regarding the ‘fees’ they charge. WHY? Our commission is always negotiable. For another, I’ve gotten referrals from other brokerages that desire the same % for their referral fees anyway. And bottom line….something is better than nothing. Many of you will not agree although if you’re in a market where the agent to household ratio is one agent to every ten households (okay, a little exaggerated but it sure seems that way sometimes lol) you're happy when a referral comes in. In any (79 comments)
ActiveRain Community Support- A Happy Holiday Wish To ActiveRain - 12/25/11 12:19 PM
It all started back in March of 2007 when I finally decided to accept an invite from Randy Prothero and start blogging on ActiveRain. I jumped right in not knowing what I was doing and actually started doing it for ‘fun’. Then I started reading from other members about why they blog and how they get business and referrals from other members who they connected with. It’s been a long journey to gain experience of the whole ActiveRain who, what, when, how and why about blogging although it’s been a rewarding time indeed! With business, referrals and the most important..the (52 comments)
A Christmas Treasure - In Memory of Jamie Caulk and Lillian Caulk - 12/24/11 01:21 PM
Carol Grub, Cyndee Haydon and friends started a project and I was contacted by Cyndee regarding “THE JAMIE & LILIAN CAULK MEMORIAL PROJECT” for our friend and fellow member Missy Caulk and her family . There was no hesitation from me to ‘get the word out’!!! Missy Caulk, mother of Jamie and grandmother of Lilian, experienced a grief that is unimaginable to me as I have not experienced the loss of a child or grandchild. This loss and tragedy happened to Missy’s family within a few weeks time of each other with first the loss of her son Jamie in (13 comments)
ActiveRain Holiday Greeting Card Contest WINNERS!!!!! - 12/22/11 06:38 PM
The Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul group holds an annual Holiday contest and the ActiveRain Holiday Greeting Card Contestwas a huge success! Members chose from variety of Holiday Greeting themes for clients, peers and anyone included in our long list of those involved in the Real Estate Industry. It is always my pleasure to host the contests and to keep all the links together but with almost 80 entries for this contest the Judges had a VERY hard time picking from all the wonderful cards! The creativity for the cards along with their ‘greetings’ and a short story on why (55 comments)
Your Hawaii VA Home Loan Process | HAWAII Military Relocations - 12/17/11 04:40 PM
Active Duty or Veterans of the Armed Forces have their VA Home Loan benefits for a little or no money down loan program to purchase a Hawaii home . (provided they are within lender guidelines). The Veteran’s Administration is not a loan company and you will still have to get preapproved for a loan from a local lender. VA guarantees the Local Lender that they will reimburse the lender a percentage should the veteran default on their loan. (not that you will right?)
The following steps are what this Real Estate Professional helps you with in order to make your Relocation to (14 comments)
Common ‘Mistakes’ or Blatant Disregard for Our Real Estate Industry? - 12/10/11 07:31 PM
There are Laws we learn in Real Estate School and that we PRACTICE every day as licensees. I admit it…I AM ANAL about abiding by our Real Estate Laws and following our COE. There are no cutting corners in real estate for me and it irritates me when there are others that do….blatantly. Common ‘Mistakes’ or Blatant Disregard? Breaking the Law: When one gets arrested, charged and convicted for drunk driving, doing drugs, not paying taxes on commission (In Hawaii we have to pay not only State and Federal Taxes but General Excise Taxes too!) stealing etc. you are not only (18 comments)
