Why Range Price, the consumer guide - 06/25/07 10:49 PM
When Range pricing first came to Madison Wisconsin, I shied away from it. I did get a good background on it was too new in the market to be acceptable. Now it is well known but it has really not been used to it's full extent. Now, in a slower market, I have embraced it almost totally. After a number of swift successes, I feel like I am some what of an authority on the subject. It is still a bit of an unknown to most clients, agents are better informed but I still get questions like why wouldn't people just bit the (10 comments)
Visit to the dentist. - 06/18/07 11:00 PM
I had a routine visit to the dentist today. It was just a check up. No chance of any pain! Just the fear of finding something for future pain. (yes they did manage to find a tiniest of cavities) I spent the best part of 45 minutes with the hygienist. Lying back and enjoying this rather nice looking woman cooking with garlic and tomatoes on some cable cook show, the hygienist asked me whether she should have the dentist come look at my mouth. In the end, she decided to just look at the xrays- 3 minutes max. This got me wondering:- Why (4 comments)
Range Pricing, why it works - 06/16/07 12:17 AM
When I have posted listings with range pricing, I am surprised in the wide response. ranging from disdain to wondering why people don't just offer the lowest price. First a bit of background, then I will give a good example of how it has just worked. Let's start with it's origin. According to a training, Range Pricing was thought up in Australia in a slow market. It was scientifically tested and actually worked to increase the likelihood of an offer in a slow market. Range pricing was designed to have a 20% range. The idea was to offer an incredibly low bottom end price to (24 comments)
New Logo, feedback - 06/14/07 11:27 PM
Folks, I have been working on a new look and logo for the Real Estate Guy Team. I really didn't have much luck with my designed. We started down the wrong road and all was going well till a colleague called the logo the "G" spot. That is when my designer and I started to drift apart. She thought that was stupid, I thought it was funny, and because I thought I would be teased constantly about that, That Idea was gone and I was back to scratch. I picked up on one of the other ideas, and after a struggle, got the designer (31 comments)

Feel Down? Just pick up the phone - 06/13/07 10:37 PM
This is an extremely tough business. The public does not know this, but as self employed people, we are susceptible to down days. When ever I find someone in the office on one of those days, I offer this advice. The difference between success and failure in this business is- after a bad day, winners just get back on the phone and make something happen. Yesterday was a case in point for me:- I had a bad day. I have some very stressful situations going, and by the end, felt really beaten up and exhausted. Luckily, my assistant is incredibly supportive (and screens me from much (8 comments)
FSBO's do better? NY Times Article, - 06/08/07 11:39 PM
I feel it is about time to respond to the articles in the press promoting Sellers doing better on their own. The New York times article (linked below) is the latest in an apparent crusade against Realtors. To give some credit, this article does give some balance in stating the NAR statistics that a represented seller gets more $$ for a home. First, in my mind it is reckless for articles to indicate to a buyer or seller that this is something they should even consider on their own. The average person selling real estate has 1, never bought or sold before, or 2 (11 comments)
