Preparation.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

When I moved to a new area, in a new state I had to find all sorts of people for services I would need both at the time and for evermore. As a new friend once said, "you don't want to be searching for a dentist when you have an abscess." That line pretty much said it all.

It is really important to have a list of providers for things and services you will certainly need at some point in time. There are many names for this but I call it being prepared.

This applies to business as well. In business if you don't anticipate you are in really big trouble. When there is an emergency you need to have professionals you can immediately call, not search for, but be at the end of a phone line ready to respond. Our clients expect that we will have folks we work with regularly who we know and trust and can depend on for not only our needs, but theirs.

Are you prepared to help, call someone and act? If not, I would suggest you get ready now. Always pays to be prepared.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila,

When we moved to Napa, we had to find many people to help out out.  It would have been nice, if our agent had a list for us.  A

Your friends words are very wise, we definitely should be prepared with people that can help us before we actually need the help.

I keep a resource page on my website for people moving to Sacramento and don't know who to call. Then I just send the link to them. Keeps things simple.

At my home in Hawaii, I've already started building resources there as well. Like you said, Sheila, you need to be prepared.

The one area where I have trouble finding reliable service provider referrals are contractors.  General contractors are terrible about returning calls and managing business.
