real estate: dual agency? - 03/16/11 11:06 AM
Ok, I have a question for all the agents out there, but first let me give you some background.  I was presented the other day with a unique situation where a woman came to one of my open houses, stated to me very clearly that she loved the home and had cash to purchase it, and said she would be back to write an offer. I thought to myself, wow, very cool, the home's first open house and already a cash offer! Pretty good. The woman came back and subsequently asked me to help her write the offer. I asked if … (0 comments)

real estate: Why it is necessary to be nice on the phone! - 02/27/11 03:58 PM
A kind recommendation to the listing agents out there: please remember that when your phone rings and you do not recognize the number, it is possible that a fellow colleague from the real estate world is on and wants to show your property! The last time I checked, this was a good thing. The unfortunate truth is that this does not always seem to be the case. Now, I understand that being a rookie in the real estate business, I still have a whole lot to learn and experience, and I would never say anything to the contrary. However, I will … (5 comments)

real estate: The seasons of real estate - 02/14/11 04:28 AM
In real estate, we often talk about the seasons of the business. What are the seasons? Well, glad you asked! The seasons are the same as the ones we have known forever. Summer, fall, winter, and spring, and each represents a unique time in the real estate market. For both buyers and sellers, please read and take heed... consider these seasons when developing the strategies you and your agent use to either buy or sell a home.
The wonderful spring, March to June - often referred to as the best time to both buy and sell, this is an appreciating market … (2 comments)

real estate: Real estate is our business, and business is good! - 11/26/10 01:37 AM
I have heard a lot lately about how the market is tough, and that the business just is not there anymore.  While it is certainly safe to say that the market is not what it once was, it is with the last comment that I take issue with.  As any veteran agent out there knows, it is true, the business is not like it was 5 or 6, or even 10 years ago.  That phone during your up time just is not ringing like it used to.  However, that does not mean the real estate business is dead, and people no … (8 comments)

real estate: Condo buying? Some questions you should ask. - 11/24/10 04:05 AM
My last client asked me very kindly, why are there so many additional things we have to ask for before submitting an offer to buy the condominium that I love?  I answered equally as kind, and I quote,  "there are factors that are involved in the purchasing of a condominium that are not always present when buying a single family home".  This led to further discussion regarding the ins and outs of condo buying, culminating in a really great list of questions to ask, or at least find out about, before you submit your offer.  Here is the list:
1.  Make sure to review the … (35 comments)
