Taking Time for the Family (of dogs) - 11/15/08 08:11 PM
I sometimes (most of the time) find myself feeling guilty when I don't work all day during the weekends. I feel like I might be missing out on the next great lead, or I will just push myself farther behind. I was feeling like that today, even though I spent a few hours thinning out my Inbox and an hour at the office picking up a counter-offer and trying to get it negotiated (my buyers want to sleep on it). Then, I came back home to my family. The noise level was high as all my little darlings rushed to the (8 comments)
How was Your Friday? - 11/14/08 11:07 PM
Am I an eternal optimist, or has business been picking up over the past week? Today was a busy day. I had multiple, very productive appointments. I got a ton of stuff done at the office this morning, had a really good listing appointment in the afternoon, and wrote an offer tonight. I am not writing this to be boastful, but merely to share an example of how business has picked up for me lately. I am truly grateful. How about you? I am very curious what agents across the country have experienced since the election. (11 comments)
Happy to Help My Fellow Agents - 11/13/08 09:39 PM
Today was our monthly office meeting. It was a dreary, rainy day, so it was a smaller meeting than usual. I am so happy to hear the other agents in the office talking so enthusiastically about using the internet to further their business. Our discussion began with the company website, then turned to blogging and social networking sites. My real estate career would never had taken off from the beginning if it was not for the internet. I was not a new agent in my hometown. I did not have a lot of family in the area. I hardly knew (0 comments)
Are YOU a part of the revolution? If not, be prepared to be left behind by those who are. - 11/13/08 07:27 PM
I couldn't agree more with what Jason is saying. Via Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate: I realized recently that we are now in the midst of a revolution and a dramatic paradigm shift in the way that marketing is conducted. This may seem like a strong term for those who don't "get it" yet, but believe me when I say that it is nothing short of phenomenal. In early 1998, about a year after I got my real estate license, my business partner and I decided to launch our own real estate website (www.austintexashomes.com). Despite the fact that we got (1 comments)

Previewing Homes Today - 11/06/08 09:31 PM
Aside from some recent Broker Luncheons, I have found that I have not spent the time lately to go out there and see what was available on the market. With the market as it has been here the past couple of months, I found myself spending more time keeping in touch with potential clients, figuring out how to market my listings so they stand out from the crowd, and stressing. What I have not done was to just go out and see what some local builders have been working on, check out the new subdivisions, and spend a little time with (0 comments)
