brad snyder: What do you believe in? Back to Basics Real Estate. - 11/22/11 12:37 PM
My success in Real Estate depends on relationships. My client relationships can only prosper and grow if I continually improve myself, and the work I do. I recognize however, that success is not measured by sales; commissions, and numbers alone. I measure success by the way in which I achieve my goals. I believe that a commitment to uncompromising values and integrity should always guide my decisions and actions as I pursue my goals. The following are the core values that form the foundation of my measurement of success:
I believe in providing legendary service. My goal is … (4 comments)

brad snyder: 100,000 Points on A/R, my Broker License and Sales Are Good! - 05/16/10 12:51 PM
WOW!! What a year 2010 is shaping up to be and it is only May. I have surpassed the 100,000 point level here on Active Rain, I have gotten my Broker license and sales are great. People ask me all the time how the real estate market is and I have to say it is subjective. What do I mean they ask..... I have Friends in the business who are not having as good of year. I know agents who are waiting tables and working in other jobs to make ends meet. I hear sellers that sound like selling their home … (8 comments)

brad snyder: Is e-mail killing the Real Estate Agent? - 03/08/10 02:03 PM
Communication is and has been the key to building a great real estate client base or "sphere of influence". In the past few years technological innovation starting with e-mail, text messages, our websites, blackberry and many more innovations has made it easier than ever to stay connected to our clients 24-7 and I have not even mentioned blogging, facebook and twitter. It is easy to see all the advantages of instant and constant contact options.
My question is this..... has all the technology caused us to lose the true art of real communication. I have become and e-mail junky. It is … (9 comments)

brad snyder: Buy Used or Build New?? - 03/05/10 11:49 PM
New home sales are still slow and financing new construction is tougher than it used to be.... however building your dream home is still an option. You can ask yourself a few questions that can help you decide which option is better for you.......
Building may be better if:
    * You already own land or can buy an area at a suitable location within your budget.
    * You have easy access to building materials.
    * You know a good contractor who is trustworthy and capable of finishing your project on time and within your budget.

brad snyder: Property Management Referral Fees?? - 03/05/10 11:31 PM
I manage about 100 single family homes in Southern Arizona and have grown from about forty a year and a half ago. My goal a year and a half ago  was to be at 200 in two years. I have made progress with word of mouth and online marketing however I am not gaining the ground I had hoped.
How are you growing your property management portfolio?
Do any of you offer agent referrals and do they work?
What advertising has brought you the best results?
Thanks for your ideas.

I want to wish everyone a happy Labor Day! I hope you’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with friends and family, away from the rush of work or the concerns of money, and really enjoy the important things in life.
Whether you're treating yourself to some fun with friends and family, or using your free time to do home projects, I hope you're capitalizing on this national holiday! I'll definitely be doing some cooking today and hopefully getting some long-overdue projects done. Cheers! Have a good one.

brad snyder: Power of Positive Thinking and Attitude. Its what we need. - 08/23/09 12:26 PM
Power of Positive Thinking and Attitude..... A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action and that includes the economy. It’s about psychology! Yes, this economy is getting better, and the real estate market is improving, but not as quickly we all would like. But, because confidence is being restored, everything looks better.
I believe in the power of positive thinking... and negative thinking as well. If your life is not what you want it to be, and you are thinking how bad the situation is will make you believe that there is … (1 comments)

brad snyder: Real Estate Teams for Property Managagement? - 08/23/09 04:27 AM
There are many blogs regarding Sales Teams and my question is for property managers. How do you create a Team for Property Management? What are the pitfalls? How many properties should you have before you create a team?
I took over our porperty management department a year ago with 40 properties and expanding it to almost 100. It is generating sales leads both from tenants and owners who are looking to add additional untis however the time involved in doing both sales and property management is challenging.
Any advice would be appreciated.

brad snyder: Car Grahics? Good, Bad, or the Great Cheap Advertising - 08/20/09 04:01 PM
OK folks. There is a great devide here on the Rain about car graphics, magnets and wraps for advertising the real estate professional. I have sold two home off a set of $90 car magnets and when I picked up a spare truck to use for putting up signs and general real estate errands...... I broke down and added some graphics. This is not my primary vehicle and I do beleive it will generate some interest. So..... give me your thoughts. Too much, not enough or aa bad idea??
