Interview and then interview more - 01/22/09 07:33 AM
Often when I ask people how they plan to picked their agent, I get varied responses. The most common are I go to open houses and if I see a home I like I use who is there and I have a friend who is in the business or I know someone who knows someone that is an agent.I suggest that those are great ways to start getting names, but interview many agents and get a person who you feel is going to work for your best interest.Here are some questions you might ask:1. Are you a full time agent?2. What were (0 comments)
wanted - Part time Brain Surgeon - 01/21/09 08:04 PM
Sounds a little silly doesn't it! We all would definitely not use a part timer for this! Same would go for a doctor or accountant or basically and professional. So why would you use a part time Realtor? Because it is the friend of a friend or maybe even a distant cousin? When buying or selling a home don't you owe it to yourself to use a professional that is looking out for your best interest, not just trying to get supplemental income? Ask agents when you are interviewing them if this is a full time job or if they have another (6 comments)

Customer Service - 01/16/09 07:16 AM
I have a Kubota tractor. Last winter the hydraulic system malfunctioned and I need to have it serviced. I had a bad experience with the local dealer, so I found a former customer from my old business who said he had a tech who could fix it. This tech had come from a Kubota dealership. No problem.......wrong! 2 1/2 months later and my tractor was still not fixed. He tried to charge me for the"work" they had done, but I refused, picked up the tractor and was back to square one. Earlier this fall, I got a postcard in the mail from (4 comments)
