sellers: Learning how to blink.... - 05/31/14 07:22 AM
I knew I would enjoy working with these new buyers after the first email exchange.

In the book Blink, it illustrates how we think without thinking and delves into the reasons why some people are able to make quick and decisive decisions while others seem incapable of making a decision about anything. While the book deals mostly with face to face communication, I believe you can tell a lot about a person from their electronic communication too. It's a good read and a theory that any Realtor can appreciate. In this job we have to be able to size people … (0 comments)

sellers: Being a no-show is still a no-no. - 01/25/13 10:51 PM
I've written enough and read enough about the chronic misuse of a Realtor's time to know that it's a problem for a lot of us in this business but I still don't understand it. I don't think I will ever understand why people think it's ok to not practice the same courtesy with their Realtor that they would any other professional. The same person who would be outraged with the electrician who is a no-show doesn't think twice about doing the same thing to their Realtor. The same person who grouses because their doctor is running 15 minutes late for their … (3 comments)

sellers: Things are popping here in the mountains - 03/25/09 06:38 AM
During the winter months here in the mountains of western North Carolina, buyers and bears hibernate. In fact, up around where we live, after Thanksgiving you probably stand a better chance of seeing a bear than you do a buyer. This year, because of the slow down in the economy it was even quieter than usual.
We used the time to work on our business and it has payed off in spades. Like any business, you have to plant the seeds of success, then give them what they need in order to grow big and strong. So we worked on our … (0 comments)

sellers: How NOT to communicate with anyone. - 03/15/09 01:25 PM
I've been hankering for a new phone. The one I have works perfectly well and does all the things a phone should do but I've begun to lust after those new phones with the touch screens and internet features. And since I  just recently started embracing texting, a phone with a QWERTY key board has become a priority. I started my research online at the Verizon website and I could have bought one right then and there. But there are some things I just don't like to order online, including shoes and cell phones.  I knew I would need to "try … (8 comments)

sellers: Maximize your home's first impression - 01/07/09 02:46 AM
When we are showing homes to prospective buyers, one of the biggest considerations, aside from price, is the condition of the home. No matter what price it is, if a home appears to be neglected and poorly maintained, the quality of the home is immediately suspect, and the perceived value (how much a buyer would be willing to pay) is immediately lower. In the eyes of a buyer, if the most basic maintenance issues have not been done, it's a short leap to assuming that the bigger issues, things can could end up costing the buyer big bucks,  haven't been taken care of either.
