The Customer is Always Right....Except in Real Estate.... - 08/30/10 10:09 PM
First time home sellers are having a difficult time adjusting to the real estate market these days....they don't get to choose the list price for the house they had paid asking or over asking a few years ago... Now...they want "someone else to suffer too..."....the seller that has the bigger house they want to buy shouldn't get their price either....half is fair..."I am going to deduct everything I lost on my house when we had to accept an offer that meant bringing cash to closing." "When do WE get to choose ?" they whine.... Your choices are.....not (18 comments)
Elaine Lien, A credit to her family and the industry....We Will Miss You - 08/22/10 12:27 PM
This morning, we got the very sad news, that Elaine Lien passed away after a fall at her home. Elaine was a realtor with the Brookfield office of the First Weber Group....I don't know how old she was or how long she was licensed...or with her broker... I do know that Elaine was every bit a lady...a polished professional. She knew the industry and those fortunate enough to know her, loved and respected her. She was always there to greet every agent with a gentle smile, a willing hand and a warm heart. Her passing is a shock....and will (11 comments)

Do you Play..."Let's Start Here...." ? - 08/15/10 08:20 AM
Do you play "Let's Start Here".... It's a popular game that can be played by buyers, sellers and willing agents.The rules are very simple... Pick a number...it can be"from thin air" or if you are a seller ...it is the money you need, deserve, should have, want....If you are a buyer...it is based on what you want to spend..the "profit...or loss" you believe the seller/bank should incur. Sellers - on your mark...get set list......don't be surprised when there are no showings. Buyers - you should not be surprised to find a counter offer in your e-mail...the 50% off blue light special (15 comments)
This is Magic.....today is "his day"....Friday the 13th....and he asked us to tell all of our friends in the blogosphere and Active Rain to be especially careful today so as not to perpetuate the "bad luck on Friday the 13th myth." He is shown here at David's desk ready to short the post its in chronological order before beginning working for today. Magic was the runt of the litter and very lucky in many ways that his "former father" heard him under the porch and could find someone to get him out and take him to his brothers (12 comments)

Price is important....and ooooh the eye candy...good tips for sellers to have everything be the best it can be for potential buyers to get their pens out and decide to make it their own ! Via Tom Branch, Broker, CDPE, SFR - 214.227.6626 (RE/MAX Dallas Suburbs): We were out showing homes and began wondering why so many occupied homes are not properly prepared for showings. The sellers knew we were going to show their home several hours in advance and yet most of them were not "show-ready" when we arrived. What is "show-ready"? Here's a little background before we answer the question. Homes (25 comments)
