In Pennsylvania agents are required by law to present, explain and have their potential clients sign a Consumer Notice which fully explains relationships between the agent and their client. It is very clear as who is representing who in a real estate transaction. But has your real estate agent really done their job? Do you understand the consumer notice that you signed? It is somewhat confusing when dual agency, designated agency and transaction licensee come into play but your agent needs to be sure that you are fully aware of who is representing who before you begin your search. Everyone is entitled to exclusive representation and it is extremely (0 comments)
TechTalk Thursday catch the fever - 03/27/08 08:10 AM
You know when you start something new, you just don't know how its gonna work out. Well, I have to say that this TechTalk Thursday forum has seemed to dig it's heels into the ground and ignited the blogger in more than a few people in my office. I went onto the Delaware County PA page to check and see if there were any new faces and boy was I surprised to find that seven of the top 25 were people in our office and most of those joined after attending or because of our TechTalk Thursday conversations on Active Rain. Congrats to Deb Greto, John Estheimer, (2 comments)

TechTalk - don't be afraid of it embrace it - it works! - 03/21/08 09:01 AM
A while back, while serving as the Technology committee chairperson at our Keller Williams office in Media PA, our small committee of 4 was brainstorming about how to help agents in our office have a better understanding about using todays technology in their real estate practice. It was immediately apparent to all of us sitting around the table that the best way to understand what the agents were looking for was to simply ask them. But what would be the best way to do that? An informal open discussion over lunch? Ding! It was a pretty simple concept. When would we have it? (4 comments)

Working With Investors - 03/20/08 12:46 AM
I love this market! Yep you heard me right, I love it. Philadelphia area investors are chomping at the bit to sink their teeth into more and more properties. As properties hit the market, the good ones are always gone quickly - right price, right location, right condition and SOLD! The beauty of this market is that the investors are constantly asking for more and more properties and that forces our team to create opportunities for the investor. We currently have a laundry list of investors who are buying all types of properties. No matter what the fed is saying, no matter what (0 comments)
On March 5, 2008, Lower Chichester firefighter Nicolas Picozzi (35) was killed fighting a fire in Upper Chichester, PA. I think this is the second firefighter in just 6 months in Delaware County. Michael Reagan, Jr. (19) of Sharon Hill, PA lost his life during a garage fire in September 2007. It is a sad and solemn occasion when these tragedies occur, unexpected deaths for those serving their communities. I was visiting my grandmother earlier this week to drop off some papers and see her new home, she just downsized into a more manageable space and loves it. Well, as I was leaving her home I arrived at the intersection just one block from (0 comments)
Delaware County's housing trend update. The national media is still killing buyer and seller perception of the market conditions in our area but at least we received a recent boost from the Philadelphia Inquirer stating that of all places in our area, Media PA was one of the best markets right now. So here is what TRENDMLS statistics are telling us about last month The number of units listed for sale is down, just under 6% over the number of units listed in January '08. However listings are up about 5% than the number of homes listed in February 2007.The Average list price is (0 comments)
Is It Starting To Warm Up Around Here? - 03/03/08 11:03 PM
Can you feel it? Not sure if buyers and sellers alike are starting to recognize it yet but I can tell you the market is starting to wake up. Activity on listings is starting to pick up as showings have increased over the past week and a half and dare I say it. I even heard talk of bidding wars on some recently listed homes! If this the same black cloud market the national press is talking about, not here, not now. The Philadelphia Inquirer did a story on the Delco market and touched bidding wars and hot open houses right here in Media. Don't get me wrong Mr./Mrs. Seller, (0 comments)
