Your Job is to Show Houses - 06/24/12 03:41 PM
Your Job is to Show Houses Having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day, she revealed to me that she was glad that she befriended a Realtor® as she has learned so much from me by watching me do my business. At one time in the past, she had wanted to buy a home for her daughter as an investment and wanted me to be her agent. The first thing I told her to do was get prequalfied...she was confused, but went ahead and listened to me and we moved forward. Now, she never ended up buying a home, (67 comments)
OK, OK, I am way late on this Facebook Fridays thing. I have missed the last couple of Fridays, so I thought I'd make it up this Saturday. I am quite sure you are all OK with this, right? Anyhoo, what prompted me to go ahead and do this today was that when going through to some of my Active Rain favorites pages, I noticed that they don't have a ton of Likes on their FB pages and it stunned me. I thought, WHAT?! You haven't liked them yet?! (12 comments)

San Antonio TX Real Estate FAQ 10 - Why Do I Need a Realtor® I will culminate this Frequently Asked Questions series about San Antonio TX Real Estate with one of the more highly asked questions, why do I need a Realtor® to either help me buy a San Antonio TX home for sale or sell a San Antonio TX home.

The above two statements (9 comments)
