How to Effectively Get Feedback from Buyer’s Agent? With a Photo of Reno, NV - 12/28/07 11:23 AM
Option 1 ~ Phone Call Good luck! Returning a phone call seems to be a dead business practice for some real estate practitioners. It is usually my first step. I leave them a message and let them know that they will be receiving an email through FeedbackNetwork.com. Option 2 ~ Email Create a template for feedback request. The issue with email is it sometimes gets dumped directly to people's "junk e-mail" folder. Option 3 ~ Feedback Network or Something Similar (My Recommendation) This is my favorite. My sellers love it. It sends multiple reminders to the buyer's agent with photos of the home to refresh (7 comments)
Who Pays for Staging Service? With Photos - 12/21/07 05:59 PM
Staging is an integral part of my marketing plan when listing a home. Most of my clients agree with my enthusiasm of staging and are willing to pay. Once a while, clients ask me, "Who's paying for this service?" Picture below was provided by my talented friend Laurie Nissen-Miller of The Interior Zone, http://www.theinteriorzone.com/, (775)846-2360. Check out my other blogs for more photos of Reno, NV. Below is "Before and After" photos. Staging makes the home more memorable and adds warmth.
Have you paid for staging service before? What was the outcome?

Does this Warrant for A Nasty Message from the Seller? With a Photo of Reno, NV - 12/14/07 05:48 PM
A seller left me a nasty message on my voice mail message last night. He was angry that I moved things around his house. He said that he thought we were only doing a walk through. He also said some "colorful" words. The seller was given five-day notice of our scheduled inspections. We had two inspectors (Certified Home and HVAC) in the home yesterday. We opened up the blinds to inspect the windows. We also neatly moved a stack of papers from the kitchen table to the kitchen countertop because my buyer and I needed to go over some paperwork. By the (27 comments)
How Do You Treat Your Coop Agent? Part 1 With a Photo of Reno, NV - 12/09/07 03:40 PM
Our job is stressful. No doubt about it! Looking back, I have burned couple of bridges in fighting for my clients. I regret burning those bridges because I now know the importance of camaraderie. My business practice is to build rapport and camaraderie with my colleagues. Whenever I am in a heated conversation, I calmly say "It is not a good time to discuss this. Let me call you back when I'm ready." That puts me in control of my emotions. I will not allow the other agent to upset me otherwise I have lost control. This also gives me the opportunity to asses the (7 comments)
What is EPA Superfund Site? With a Photo of Reno, NV - 12/06/07 12:34 PM
Have you been asked by a client as to where are EPA's Superfund sites in our area? I was recently asked by a client regarding this subject matter. My fist reaction was "huh?, Who, What, Where?" I didn't say it out loud of course. As I did more research, I found out Superfund is federal government's program to clean up the nation's major hazardous waste sites. Below is a website that you can direct your clients. They can type in a zip code to see EPA regulated facilities, nearby landfills, and find out local businesses or governments have a permit to (4 comments)
