Multi - taking a phone call - working a contract - Tasking - 03/12/07 03:38 PM
Disclaimer: In order to get the full effect of the speed of multitasking you must read this post as fast as you can! My day is riddled with multitasking. Jumping from one contract, client, house to another. I was talking with someone this weekend. I said, "Allergy shots won't fit with my lifestyle." She said, "Why?" I said, "I cannot sit somewhere for 30 minutes and not do anything." Another person looked at me and said, "It's only 30 minutes." I quickly said, "A whole freaking 30 minutes! Do you know how much I can do in 30 whole minutes!" In fact, (2 comments)
Open House, Closed House, Safe House - 03/04/07 11:38 AM
Reading all the dialogue on my Safety? or Stupidity? blog entry, I realize that there's another arena to discuss. Is it really necessary to conduct open houses or are open houses just an old way of conducting business? Does the potential for a sale justify putting ourselves at risk? Why do we do an open house?

Safety? or Stupidity? - 03/03/07 01:24 PM

The muscle of a committment letter - 03/02/07 08:37 PM
I have a client looking for a home that has a committment letter from her lender. This is strong letter. In fact, if you are one of those agents who do not know the difference in preapproval, approval or committment letters read the posting by Eric Hemmer. Ok, now that you know. Can you tell me, if you have multiple offers on one of your listings and one of the offers is for slightly more than the list price and the buyer has included a copy of their loan committment letter, what would you do? Folks, this is a no-brainer. I've tried (0 comments)
