Premier Service - 05/28/09 03:54 PM
After having a focus group in our office today, I am excited about offering my clients the best that I can give and to really listen to their needs. Sometimes, I forget it's not about how much but about showing others how to buy and sell Real Estate. I want to care about those I'm dealing with. After that I'm sure success will follow.

After the Holiday - 05/26/09 11:54 AM
It's good to be back to work today. I'm doing floor this morning and it feels like I'm not the only one moving slowly today. I think at this point, we are getting many calls looking for rentals. Are any of you out there also getting more calls for rentals? I'm definitely going to get more involved in them. It's definitely going to be a bigger part of my business. Having built,rented,and managed an apartment complex, It is an area that I have much experience in and I can use the income. (4 comments)
Opportunity knocks - 05/23/09 01:58 PM
Even though most of us have experienced many problems in this tough economic market and are not doing as well as we we expected, there is much opportunity for professional and personal growth.My goals are to be a better communicator,salesperson,and to market my skills effectively. With that happening I know there will be much success. Let's try and be the best that we can be. (0 comments)
Sales are happening - 05/21/09 03:29 PM
A few of you out there commented that there might not be enough inventory if the selling upswing continues. Not to worry, there are more foreclosures comming up and if inventory does dry up and there is still buyer demand then prices stabilize and start to go up. If prices go up then more folks list their homes and builders start, like myself, start to build again. This is a good thing for the U.S. economy and it's going to happen. (2 comments)
Homes are finally selling - 05/19/09 07:14 PM
People are beginning to realize that now is a great time to buy. Condos that have been on the market for quite awhile are selling to 1st time home buyers and investors. 1st time home buyers are taking advantage of the tax credit on single family homes. Move up buyers are selling their homes for less money than expected but getting bargains at the higher end. South Florida is becoming affordable again and their is opportunity for all types of buyers and sellers in this market. The buzz feels good. Spread the word. (3 comments)
Sunday's Open House - 05/18/09 03:53 PM
I sat an open house yesterday on a listing in our office and a young couple and their parents stopped. They had been searching in the area for awhile and had seen the "back on the market" listing on the internet. They drove by and really liked the home. I asked if they wanted to purchase it and they said they might but only thru the realtor that they were working with. I learned 2 things on sunday, that young people by homes off the internet and that if you treat people right they will stay loyal to you. (0 comments)
A home is the best route taken - 05/14/09 02:35 PM
If you are a young person and you are renting right now, invest in your future. It is a must that you start building equity either thru saving or home ownership. Historically, home ownership is the single most important wealth builder there is. With todays interest rates, prices, and tax incentives you must take advantage. Make the commitment and you will thank me. Besides wealthier, you will also be happier and healthier. How do I know this? It is the route I have taken. (0 comments)
Buy and Sell Now! - 05/13/09 07:27 PM
What a great time to buy a home in South Florida. Prices have come down 35% in a year, interest rates are low, and 1st time home buyers are getting an $8,000 tax credit. It's like hitting the trifecta. Investors can take advantage of low prices, young people can stop renting and buy their first home, moveups are finding incredible values, and empty nestors can move here and still have an active lifestyle. As for selling,sales are up 46% over a year ago and it's time to move up and move on. This is a call to action. contact me. (0 comments)
