listing: REAL ESTATE SPEED - 10/08/16 09:43 AM
It is an interesting dynamic to be a part of these Real Estate transactions. When nothing is brewing and an agent is between transactions, time is perceived as crawling and not acting on our best behalf's. When in a transaction, time is of the essence and one must move with a purpose not only for their own sake but for fiduciary sake too
 I DON'T SEE IT MOVING
Real Estate does not really move as we use the word literally. Agents, principals and other professional assistants make it take on different identities safely & effectively and it involves large amounts of money and remains a life changing event for … (6 comments)

listing: REAL ESTATE AGENTS DONT CONFUSE THESE TWO - 08/23/16 03:04 AM
When entering something into the MLS, you have two sections that can be put to good use. The first section called Property Description is just that. A chance to market and advertise what you got and pitch to the world at large. You see that is what appears on the Internet. Not everyone puts that space to good use. Either its too long and rambling or too short and lacks invitation. Very important this little space is
QUACK QUACK QUACK
What is supposed to go in there is your core or cream of the property points especially the property strengths, inside and out. It … (8 comments)

listing: BEFORE WE LIST FOR SALE - 03/04/16 07:10 AM
We (the seller & I) have a pre-listing discussion several of them until seller and me-agent are clear on the subject matter. Then, an inspection of the property is performed. I always tell my seller that I am going to tell you what an appraiser, inspector and a buyer will be seeing as well as other Real Estate agents. Don't get defensive!
SO WHAT DO THEY DO?
Get defensive! LOL. They try to explain everything to me as to why it didn't, why it should and why does it matter. Again, I remind them that being proactive in this business compliments the first impression. People who … (9 comments)

listing: REAL ESTATE HAS OTHER PLANS - 01/22/16 09:23 AM
I was all set to listen in on the ActiveRain Webinar always looking to hone my skills. I set it up ahead of time and was pleased that I created a window where I could participate by being a good listener but Real Estate had other plans for me. I was in the process of finishing up some listing paperwork when I noticed the Webinar had started. Save the work and..... Off I go...

listing: THE THOUGHT OF REAL ESTATE? - 08/28/15 11:39 PM
You are a THINKING about buying a home person and for some time, you have had an awareness on the subject but not really committed. You go about your business but with one eye on homes for sale as you come and go and finally you sight a potential. You pull over to write down the phone number on the sign. You are excited and not sure what to do, but want to do something.
LONG BEFORE THAT
The bad news is you needed to know what to do way before this experience. Its like Dramamine for motion sickness. It has to be … (8 comments)

listing: HOUSE FOR SALE HO-HUM? - 08/17/15 11:50 PM
I met up with a potential client who insisted on getting together. I will pay you for your time he says and I said, there is no charge for my services to consult. He was pleased and we met. He explained to me his situation which involved a 1031 exchange, retirement goals and rental issues. It was a necessary and meaningful meeting that gave rise to many other questions
FIRST TIME OUT
Real Estate is like that. It is a force that brings to the surface many issues whether you are buying or selling, renting or investing. This is transacting at the highest levels and requires prime … (27 comments)

listing: SELLERS SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE NOT A MIXED ONE - 01/14/14 05:48 AM
If we are going to do something, then energy is called upon and focus is summoned and lo and behold a change is about to take place and make itself known. FOR SALE is the message we are broadcasting to the public and we invite anyone interested to come forward
COME DON'T COME
Beware of the mixed message. That is where one of your hands is beckoning for someone to approach and the other is shooing them away. Come don't come. Which one is it? The compelling part of all this is that sellers or agents may not be aware they are doing this

listing: BUYING OR SELLING AGENT? HOW I FOUND OUT - 12/27/13 05:05 AM
Lets go back to the time when I had no license, was ignorant and young which was over 35 years ago. The lure of becoming a Real Estate licensee was strong and desirable. Pictures of wealth, power and the good life appeared if only I could get licensed
CAN YOU DO IT ALL?
I knew nothing about any particular thing and I thought having a license allowed me to do anything Real Estate with it. Well it does but can YOU do it...I mean everything with it? They don't teach or tell you that as part of the licensing procedures. You are … (5 comments)

listing: MAKING OUT IN BUSINESS DON'T SMOOCH WITH THE KISS OF DEATH - 11/15/13 11:39 PM
There are Real Estate practices that are standard procedure. They must be part of every transaction. Getting things in writing, doing diligence and being available just to name a tiny few. The BEING AVAILABLE is a biggie with me. How can you move a big ticket item effectively and efficiently when your communications are not running at optimum? Not being available is the KISS OF DEATH
THE PARTIES COME TOGETHER
What is optimum communications? Well two complete strangers...let's call them buyer and seller come together with their agents and for a short period of time must take a transaction in the hundreds of thousands of dollars … (8 comments)

In the featured THE COVETED REAL ESTATE AGENT SECOND SKIN  you learn how a neighbor of mine, a friend whose family I know and whom I SOLD HIM THE HOUSE he is living in and trying to sell now is listed with someone else and how when I came home and saw the FOR SALE sign how devastated I was that he didn't use me to help move this product.

listing: REAL ESTATE IS A "DO RIGHT" NOT A "DO OVER" - 06/20/13 12:03 AM
I remember going to the dentist one day 30 years ago for some experimental work. It required 2 hours of sitting in a chair, having some paste put in my mouth to take a indentation and then having to breath through a tube. All right sez I, I have put this off long enough. I am going to take this on and be done with it. It was a huge inconvenience, a terrible experience but a necessary one
STAY WITH ME HERE
So what happens? The indentation doesn't take and after all the apologies from the dentist (who never did … (2 comments)

listing: NAKED AS A JAYBIRD REAL ESTATE DISCLOSURE - 04/30/13 05:33 AM
Look what the procedures are in today's Real Estate market. In no particular order, the transaction consists of getting an inspection at some point and having the house reveal itself by seeing if it can stand and live up to a reasonable inspection. Also involved is the agents walk-thru where a visual casual inspection is made and anything of interest is noted. Included as well is a SIT-DOWN with the owners where they take a sort-of HOUSE COMMUNION
FORGIVE ME...THE FOLLOWING IS WRONG
My sit-downs mirror a confessional. I put on my Real Estate cloth and assume writing posture, we sit … (4 comments)

My friends...there are two types of people in the world. Ones that give massages and ones that receive. I am a receiver. I turned my body over to a professional and she went to work on it from head to toe sparing nothing. She told me about my body life, what I do too much of and what parts of my body are showing it and she it hit it 5 for 5. The body speaks says she and I said....Yes it does...oww!

I always like to give something you cant get elsewhere to mark a special occasion. Making something by your own hands and heart remains very special indeed I am sure we all agree. When transacting in REAL ESTATE the experience should be productive as well as fun too. When you list with RAN RIGHT REALTY, you not only get special attention and of course results...but

listing: FORECLOSING DURING NEGOTIATIONS SHOCKING - 09/07/12 01:26 AM
I have had this happen twice to me now and it is something that stings and should not be allowed. In my first encounter, I was aggressively seeking a loan modification (remember those?) and in constant (painful) nearly daily communications with the bank. I waded through them losing documents, being kept on hold and being disconnected often
ALMOST THERE
Finally, we are at the tail end and have followed and obeyed all instructions to the letter and responded in record time too. The subject was so important that we felt it deserves top notch time and attention. That is what responsible, … (100 comments)

listing: ARROGANCE OF IT ALL over priced REAL ESTATE LISTING - 08/03/12 12:25 AM
I just recently was offered a listing on some land and it was presented to me like the owner was doing me a favor. Okay, I can appreciate a favor, some business and a chance to work out my skills and talents and put another notch on my Real Estate belt. I was briefed, asked a few questions and then started my research in regards to this business proposition
SHORT TERM AND OVER-PRICED
Now things were starting to make sense. I wasn't sure why the owner of this home was so distant, appeared to be arrogant and vague until my data … (5 comments)

You are in for a treat. WHY? I will show you how to either get in or out of the transaction successfully. No muss or fuss, drama, distraction or wasted time or energy. The best part of the beginning of the whole system in dealing with Richie (moi) is the free consultation. You get to explore, ask questions and ponder all for free. Doesn't matter if you go with me or not. The next agent will appreciate you even more and marvel at your savvy
