bradford realty group: Should You Take Every Listing? - 08/21/09 03:29 AM
It is our job to help the seller to sell their home and inform them of what we know, what we have researched about the area, and their home. Everything needs to be addressed at the listing presentation from the price, market conditions, the appearance, what advantages their home has, and all the terms. If we take a listing solely based on what the sellers wants to do and saying yes to everything the seller says, then we are not doing our seller or ourselves any good, because we are not doing our job properly.
With that being said, we also … (4 comments)

bradford realty group: Marketing Isn't Important To Grow Your Business! - 08/05/09 01:24 PM
Marketing Isn't Important To Grow Your Business! Right, how else are we suppose to build a successful business, besides doing some kind of marketing. I have never known any real estate business or any other business for that matter to not use some kind of marketing. Marketing can change a business single handedly, from going under to making it so busy, your are completely swamped! If your business is failing, it is more likely the way your marketing your business and your service. Sit back and think about the way your marketing and do some changes, then see what happens.

bradford realty group: Renting Or Buying.. What Should You Do? - 08/05/09 07:31 AM
Renting or Buying, What Would You Do? Are you someone that would rather rent than buy? Honestly, I don't see how anyone would want to rent if your able to buy. I know I wouldn't rent! However, if your not sure if your going to be or want to be in the area your in for a long period of time (I say at least 3 years), if your budget isn't good enough to take on that type of investment, or have credit issues, then renting is really the only logical thing to do. But you need to work on all … (2 comments)

bradford realty group: Buffing Up Your House To Sell It - 07/30/09 02:55 AM
Buffing Up Your House To Sell It Sellers are always asking, what can I do to help make my home sell faster. What can be done around the home to make it look more appealing to those potential buyers. The answer is a simple one, but you will need to be in the mood to do the work. You don't need to make "HUGE" changes, no knocking down walls or renovating any rooms, just some a bit of hard work and an eye for detail. There are three things you can do, don't have any clutters anywhere, clean and repair things … (2 comments)

bradford realty group: Growth Leader: Cash Deals...No Brainers! - 03/16/09 03:48 AM
Yesterday, I had just gotten home from church when a prospective client from Growth Leader called.  We have talked to him a few times on the phone, and exchanged several emails.  Alison Hunter, one of our agents has been really the one working with him.

So anyway, my phone rings, and he wants to write an offer on a house that he found on our Growth Leader website.  What we DIDNT know was this...He is an investor who is going around and buying more "high end" foreclosures and flipping them.  He has purchased several homes and will be purchasing more.
He … (4 comments)

Trunk N Treat brought THOUSANDS of children and parents to our church at Community Bible Church on Sunday, October 26th. An hour after the event was suppose to be over, the last of the children made their way through the line.
We had 4 rows of trunks filled with treats. We had a soccer field of games and food. We had one heck of a great time, and the kids did too!

This year Bradford Realty Group decided we were going to go for the Fall Festive Trophy. We wanted something simple, but yet cute. We … (7 comments)

A few weeks back, I made the announcement that Bradford Realty Group was expanding!  I announced that our new Buyer's Agent, Alison Hunter was coming aboard.

bradford realty group: MIA: Life Keeps On Keeping On! - 08/19/08 09:21 AM
I almost forgot what the blogging world was like.  For the past month, I have been dealing with issues that come second to nothing...My Family!  The funny thing is that business kept on keeping on too!  Most people believe that if you arent working your business 24/7 then it wont be successful. I say...HOGWASH!

bradford realty group: Thank You Active Rain: Why we do what we do....I do it for my Sellers! - 06/21/08 02:11 PM
 We all have hot buttons and reasons that we do what we do.  I am sure we are hoping to make a living selling Real Estate, but what is your focus?  Is it the commission check?  Is it the satisfaction of having a closing? For me, it is simply to do the best job I can for my sellers.
I tend to get very emotionally attached to my sellers property.  I think this is one of the reasons I am able market them the way I do.  A few months ago, I shared a story wtih you, A Client's love story....A $19,000 … (5 comments)

bradford realty group: Sellers: Does Your Agent Return Your Call? - 06/15/08 04:04 PM
Last Friday was a big day for me. I was going to spend the day with some very special buyers.  What made them so special? I am selling both of their homes, as they are getting married in July.  We were going to spend Friday out looking at homes.  We are up against a July 19 deadline.

I started out Monday with 16 homes they were interested in.  They are very specific about some of the requirements such as schools, etc.  So, I decided to call the agents and pre-qualify the home, as to not waste our time.  It was … (7 comments)
