Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Realty Partners - 303302
I met with my financial adviser yesterday and I decided that when I retire, I would like to sit back and collect a check. There are several ways to do this, but the one I am talking about today involves owning rental properties.I do own a single rental property. I bought it a year ago for my daug...
So, you have decided that it is time. The kids are finally gone and the house seems too big. Or, that raise finally happened and we can afford more house. Whatever the situation, one of the biggest decisions you have to face is, how much will my home sell for?A professional real estate agent will...
I do have a tendency to plan for the worst case scenario, then feel relieved when the best happens. This may be a part of trying to keep my clients safe. Always looking for the potholes ahead, and trying to guide my clients around them for a smooth ride.Yesterday, I spoke to a client whose home i...
I am Dr. Pete today, apparently. I am on call. Not for Brain Surgery or anything else like that. As part of my job as a listing agent, I will meet and work with any and all contractors that come to the house for work.As part of this terrific plan, I have been told that I will get a call 30 minute...

It needs a bit of this and a little of that, but who has the time?If you find yourself in this position, you might want to consider renting your ho...
There really are two sides to every story. These are the stories of the buyer and the seller, and these stories don't always mix.I have buyers who made an offer for a home this week right at the sweet spot of what the comps tell us the home should sell for. We were incensed that the seller respon...
Some real estate agents consider themselves sales people. Fewer of us think of ourselves as educators. I tend to live in the educator camp. The things in this business that tend to stop me in my tracks are the things I thought everyone knew. Have you ever mentioned something to a client and watch...
Yesterday was a very good day. It was a great one for my clients who sold their home in the morning, and closed on their new home that afternoon. It was a great day for the buyers in the morning and the sellers in the afternoon. It was a great day for all the agents involved as well. At the end o...
