What’s Follow Up Got to do With it? - 01/19/11 09:47 AM
For those of you who read Lisa Coates excellent blog on “The True Definition of a Lead” this will be a great follow up to that. Now that we have a general idea of what exactly a lead is to us and our business (although some were a little far fetched in my humble opinion) let’s figure out HOW to convert more of them. The common theme among everyone who commented is “develop a system” or some kind of routine method to stay in touch so you can build that necessary relationship or get the right questions answered.

The Clash – Should I Stay or Should I Go? - 01/11/11 12:01 PM
Remember this great song? Who would have thought the lyrics to be so relevant for a real estate market? The song goes on to say…”if I go there will be trouble, if I stay it will be double!” So come on agents, what advice do we give to sellers? Should they stay or should they go? Well, it’s not an easy question to answer sometimes. There are some factors that have to be considered before making such a big decision. I always take the position with my clients that I give them the complete picture of both scenarios. If you sell, (2 comments)
2011 is the year for Recovery! - 01/06/11 08:39 PM
I'm announcing 2011 as MY year for recovery. Does that mean I think the housing market is going to make a full recovery this year? No, hardly. In fact, I recognize that the market isn’t going to help me at all. It’s not my friend. I don’t care. I’m not concerned about the market. I have a job to do, clients to help and a business to run. I figure I have two choices here…I can come up with all the reasons why I won’t achieve my goals, or all the reasons that I WILL! There is no substitute for hard (6 comments)
7 Things every Seller needs to know before pricing your home for sale - 01/04/11 04:58 PM
I’ve found in this market taking a more methodical or statistical approach to selling works better for the clients I represent. We all wish we had a crystal ball to use in making such decisions as selling a home. The truth is, we actually have something better, statistics. If your agent closely monitors trends happening now and historically, they can give you a pretty accurate idea of what’s going to happen, if you’ll listen of course. Before you put your home on the market, pricing is always the biggest discussion. We already know you don’t want to “give it away” nor (9 comments)
