Keller Williams Reunion SOLD OUT!! - 01/29/10 10:06 AM
As of last night the KELLER WILLIAMS REUNION IN NEW ORLEANS is sold out. In Febuary over 7500 professional agents will go to New Orleans to attend industry's top training event. This is a great way to network with agents all around the country and tell them about lake Oconee and let them know we are here and can give them referrals if they refer clients to us and vice versa. How does this help our clients??? It gives them more expoisure and will also link us with KW agents all around the US and if we now someone that is moving to another (0 comments)

We are getting a new lake Oconee Academy School at Lake Oconee which I think will help move some homes here at Lake Oconee. Instead of people having to pay for private schools that will help them $400.00 per child. What do you guys think. Kim (0 comments)
From Boom to Bust to ... To Who knows??? - 01/26/10 06:23 PM
The decade that just ended was the richest one on record for mortage bankers: $25 trillion in orginations, billions in origination fees - and record profits. Of course,all those "record profits" have reversed themselves, and with the housing market in a depression (in some parts of the country.) the immediate future hardly looks bright. Then again, before any industry can bounce back it must first find a floor,which is hopefully what's occurring now. continued high employment will only delay the process. Low mortage rates should help. As a whole,2009 wasn't that bad after all when it came to loan productions: $1.9 trillion (3 comments)

Referrals are extremely important in our business. - 01/23/10 08:44 PM
People ask me all the time how do you get so much business. Well, I believe in the motto that if you treat people the way you would want to be treated then it always pays off. I love my line of work and I love spending time with my clients even after the sale. I make friends with them and I stay knowledgable about the market and real estate and then when my clients have some one that they know is buying or selling they always refer to me. I also beleive in getting to know other realtors in different areas (2 comments)
