Fall is just around the corner - 09/21/11 01:59 PM
Great article by Judit, a real estate agent in Nampa, Idaho. This article makes me ready for the fall colors, cool mornings, and of course college football. Via Judit Crace (Boise Premier Real Estate): Have you noticed that the days are getting shorter, the mornings are colder and dusk is coming earlier? Seen a few leaves drift to the ground? Nothing symbolizes fall like a mound of leaves. The yearly chore of raking them can terrify you, but why not have fun doing it? Make a pile, have kids jump in them, have a “fall leaf fight”… … then when it (1 comments)

WIIFM: What's In It For Me? A Realtors Perspective - 09/13/11 12:08 PM
Last week, I attended the ActiveRain webinar. It was a great refresher to hear new ideas and excitement about the real estate market. I heard the acronym WIIFM "What's In It For Me" during one of the webinars. As Realtors, we need to remember this when we are forming relationships with our Buyers & Sellers. Our customers/clients want to know how YOU (Realtor) can help meet THEIR needs and wants. Below is a video I came across where the Realtor has their own WIIFM in mind. Enjoy!

FACEBOOK FOR REAL ESTATE AGENTS - 09/08/11 03:51 PM
I met with a Buyer who called me on the phone. Great lead...comes to my office, brings a few of the properties he's been looking at, brings a pre-qual letter for $125K (it's Boise, Idaho my fellow ActiveRainers) and wants to go out and look at properties. He's another lead from FB. I've proven it works, and why more agents are not using it correctly and linking it to their other digital "presences" I don't know. Craigslist in my market is overused, but FB seems to be wide open. Is this just Boise? Is there one that works better in your market (1 comments)
