I recently wrote a couple blog posts, What I Ask of My Buyers and What I Ask of My Sellers. Time to turn the table on me. Here's what I ask of myself -- my check list of what I owe my buyers and sellers. Be Honest-- Tell the truth about the current market conditions. If your house is priced higher than the market can handle, I will tell you. I will provide you with the feedback we receive from private showings and open houses, whether it's positive or negative. If your expectations of what you want in a house is not (2 comments)
September 6, 2011 Dear Dad, Remember the last time I sat down to write you a letter?

And so I would ask this of every buyer: Loyalty -- I ask that you work with me exclusively, and that means signing a Buyer Agency Agreement. A lot of time, effort and research goes into looking for a house. I run (3 comments)
