Stupid Is As Stupid Does Forrest Gump said. We see it all the time. Decisions made and announced, and you just go HUH??? What were they thinking??!!!
Last week, one of the local DJs, Eddie Fingers, was fired by Clear Channel Communications over a contract extension dispute. Unlike so many radio and TV personalities fired for something said that shouldn't have been said, Eddie was fired because some corporate big shot in Texas obviously doesn't understand just how revered Eddie is by the local radio listeners. After decades on the local radio scene, Eddie just might be one of the most popular figures in Cincinnati. After the six month non-compete expires, he'll be back on a competing station. Clear Channel's mistake...as Julia Robert's character in Pretty Woman said " Big mistake, Big, HUUUGEEE!"
The same type of BIG mistake can be made when you select a REALTOR®! Technically, The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite is licensed to work ANYWHERE in Ohio. But would we list a home in Cleveland? No! Honestly, we wouldn't ever do business in downtown Cincinnati because we don't KNOW that area well enough to adequately represent a buyer or seller. Dirty Harry said you've got to know your limitations, and we do! We promise we won't do anything to hurt our clients JUST to collect a commission check! We CAN find you a great agent that works in areas we don't serve, but we won't personally go to areas we can't protect your best interests.
When you're working an area, you need to know what's important for that area! Facts like Lebanon has one of the country's largest YMCAs and that Mason has a Community Center that will blow you away (rock climbing wall coming soon)! That Antique shoppers will love downtown areas in Waynesville and Lebanon! The best places to live to access the Little Miami Bike Trail! How long it takes to get to Cincinnati or Dayton from this or that area in Warren County! The list goes on and on.
So select carefully when picking your REALTOR®! Make sure they know YOUR local area!
Living and Working in Warren County!
