Your Tulsa Home For Sale – it’s ALL in the photos! - 03/15/12 09:12 AM
Your Tulsa Home For Sale - it's ALL in the photos! When your Tulsa home for sale goes on the market, you want to make sure that your home is in top-notch condition and that professional photos are distributed throughout the internet. Home Buyers are shopping online, so if they don't like what they see in the photos, they are not going to consider viewing your home.
I always encourage Sellers to stage their Tulsa home for sale, and staged homes will photograph better. The professional photographer on our team, Leslie Gregory, says that staged homes are easier to photograph (8 comments)

SHOWING INSTRUCTIONS for Tulsa home Sellers - 03/10/12 05:43 AM
How important are SHOWING INSTRUCTIONS for Tulsa home Sellers? Tulsa home Sellers depend on the guidance and advice from their Tulsa Realtor on how best to get their home sold, and showing instructions are a key factor. All Tulsa home Sellers want to make their home as ACCESSIBLE as possible to cooperating REALTORS. This means your showing instructions should NOT require that your Listing Realtor be present for showings. It is difficult enough to map out and schedule showings for 5-8 homes without having to accommodate another busy Realtor's schedule. DO NOT be present during showings. It is okay to (2 comments)

Selling real estate - who is the decision maker? - 03/05/12 08:36 AM
Selling real estate - who is the decision maker? One of the first things I learned in Marketing 101 in college was to make sure you are speaking to the decision-maker when making your sales pitch - and that holds true in every profession, even real estate. Recently a friend of my husband's contacted me about purchasing some midtown Tulsa real estate. He was not finding what he was wanting and asked me to help him out. In addition to the description of his dream home, he very clearly told me that his ten year-old daughter would be spending weekends with (26 comments)
