Sweet Sellers Send Sweet Gifts - 11/28/11 12:40 PM
It's always super satisfying when we close a short sale. Despite the roller coaster ride that everyone involved goes on, the headaches, the frustration, and all the work, it's always worth it to know that it was all to help the homeowners (who we consider friends by the end of the transaction) avoid foreclosure and have a fresh new start.
The Seller's gratitude at the end gives me enough to keep going. So needless to say, when we're sent a gift in appreciation from our Sellers, it completely makes our day. Today we got Edible Arrangements (just in (11 comments)
There’s a Native American saying that tells us to “Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way”.
Given the country’s climate where everything is uncertain and we don’t know where we are heading, it’s hard to keep an optimistic attitude. Many families feel like they have insurmountable hurdles, but I think this also puts on added emphasis on the smaller things we are grateful for.
What we are grateful at Green Realty is that we know that just like what goes up must come down, the opposite is true. Every wave has a trough and (11 comments)

Pre-Approving the Cooperating Agent... has it really come to this? - 11/17/11 02:35 PM
We all know that we should make sure that a Buyer is truly pre-approved before our Seller goes under contract with them, but how many of us pre-approve the Buyer’s Agent? I know this sounds silly, but a recent experience has caused me to really rethink my screening process. You know how hindsight is 20/20? Well, I should have known…
My first clue was when the incomplete Offer came in from this Buyer’s Agent, and the DU Findings that were sent as a pre-approval were over a year old. We actually had to convince the Buyer and his Agent to (8 comments)

Open House Rules of Etiquette - 11/09/11 11:28 AM
We had a very successful open house over the weekend, of course we advertised the open house quite a bit in the week leading up to it. Naturally we had a lot of calls and and questions, mostly pleasant, but of course there's always one that makes you feel like maybe you are in the Twlight Zone.
One Realtor called us to let us know that she was sending her Buyers over by themselves because she was busy with another set of Buyers and wouldn't be able to join them. When my manager told her that she had to accompany (65 comments)

Jumping the Gun on the Holidays - 11/03/11 12:52 PM
I recently saw a Nordstroms ad that said that we won't be seeing any Christmas/Chanukah decorations in their stores for another month because they believe in celebrating only one holiday at a time (I am assuming they'd like to get Halloween and Thanksgiving out of the way first).
This got me thinking... somehow we've gotten to a place where seeing Christmas decorations in stores as early as September is the norm. In a way, it's really exciting to feel the holidays coming around, but I can't help but feel like the holidays are being forced on me way too (9 comments)
This is Jodie Foster, the newest member in our furry family. Jodie was a teenage pregnancy case, a sad statistic. She was not spayed, had a litter way too young, and was unable to take care of her kittens. Jodie and her kittens ended up at Miami Dade Animal Services, a very high-kill shelter and not a very good place to be. Jodie was so stressed out when I rescued her that she had started ripping her own hair out.
