wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: Perfect Time to Buy Cedar Rapids Real Estate - 10/23/07 04:49 AM
A few comments have been made over the last few days at Active Rain by smaller communities telling their prospective buyers and sellers to not listing to the national news regarding real estate.
They (being the national news) paints such a gloomy, depressing picture that who would want to buy or sell real estate, after hearing those dreaded stories.  Certain "pockets" of the country are experiencing growth in the real estate field and according to the NAR, Iowa is one of five states in the country experiencing positive growth from last year's sales.  The fact of the matter is that Cedar Rapids … (0 comments)

wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: Cedar Rapid's Realtor Provides Unparalleled Service To His Clients - 03/25/07 04:45 AM
Since my slogan has always been "Service With a Smith," I would be remiss if I didn't expound upon my service attitude that has always been a part of who I am as a person, not necessarily as a Realtor.
If you have lived in Cedar Rapids for any length of time, then you know my father Al Smith.  My father has worked with children for almost 50 years in this town.  First, he was the Recreation Director for the Cedar Rapids Recreation Commission.  If you grew up in the sixties, seventies, and even into the eighties, many of you participated … (1 comments)

wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: Cedar Rapids Real Estate Report - 03/25/07 04:13 AM
Real estate sales and buyers are heating up the market in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Sales are up by a small percentage over last year.  More and more inventory continues to become available on the market.  It's kind of like the weather in Iowa.  If you don't like the weather now, wait five or ten minutes.  Similar to real estate: if you don't like what's on the market now, wait five or ten days.

wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: Skogman Realty - Christopher Smith - Working Smarter, Not Harder! - 12/28/06 07:47 AM
I have spoken to hundreds of people in Cedar Rapids and asked them if they were to search for information on a real estate website, what would they want to see.  Based on these surveys, I have put together a website with the user in mind and not the Realtor.  Every Realtor can probably brag about their accomplishments but when it comes right down to it, knowone needs to know that information.
What you do need to know is how can I get listings delivered to my email address without being "stalked" day and night by a Realtor? How can I find … (1 comments)

wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: Cedar Rapids Real Estate Experts Are Few and Far Between Or Are They? - 12/16/06 02:34 AM
We are all at some point in our real estate careers guilty of using the word "expert" in all of our literature, branding, and website advertising.  I'm guilty of it as well, but is it really such a bad thing?  Are we really experts in our field as defined by the dictionary? 
Webster's New World Dictionary defined "expert" as very skillful, having much training and knowledge in some special field.  There now, that wasn't so bad.  I tend to think that an expert has to have a PhD or Master's Degree or multiple designations after their name. Let's break down the … (0 comments)

wwwchristophersmithrealtorcom: The Top Ten Reasons Why My Website Stands Apart From the Competition - 12/07/06 02:13 AM
In it's infancy days, http://www.christophersmithrealtor.com/ was a struggling excuse for even a "static" website that merely provided information, so that 2.3 seconds later, you could switch to another, more "dynamic" website.  I liken this website to the eyes of my baby boy, who just turned one in November.
When you look at life through the eyes of a child, everything is new!  Everything has possibilities!  Everything has merit (potentially).  So, as my website continues to "learn how to walk" and not fall "face first" into everything in it's path, I give you the top ten reasons why my website stands apart from … (8 comments)
