real estate agents: Fearless. - 01/14/11 12:31 PM
Day (232,233,234,235) Fear not! Webster says: Fear is a distressing emotion aroused by a perceived threat. One of the key words in the definition is "PERCEIVED."  (Meaning nothing has yet to occur.) How can you fear something that has yet to happen? The mind is a tricky beast. There is no such concept as fear. It is truthfully only the mind telling you that you are unable to do something. Unfortunately for some it holds you back from a lot of experiences and opportunities.
To concur the beast you have to overcome the mind.  Once you can grasp that concept, you … (0 comments)

real estate agents: Prepared for Business. - 01/10/11 01:52 PM
Day (228,229,230,231)Preparation. You must have it! The moment you lack preparedness, the client will sniff you out. A Real Estate agent is suppose to be looked upon as a professional. A professional earns great money, but only when the professional is prepared for business. We have valued our business thus far on being over prepared.You never know when you are not able to answer a question. When you have rehearsed to every possible situation, the result is generally a goal. The result today in our listing appointment was slightly off. But we took every piece of the puzzle that did not … (1 comments)

real estate agents: Second Opinion.......Please! - 01/06/11 10:10 AM
Day (225,226,227)Every property is different. Every client is very different. The funny thing is that every deal brings  a new voice of reason for the future. Last week we had situations arise for a particular property. The home is quite the deal. It has an income producing property on the premises that pays for nearly half of the mortgage. The home is located right in the heart of Hollywood with convenience to everything. The situation #1: First the home was built in 20's which is very common for homes in Los Angeles. The home is lacking a proper drainage system which … (2 comments)

real estate agents: Educated Clients, Shouldn't be an extra charge! - 12/27/10 09:24 AM
Day (215,216,217,218)The day of inspection(s). They can be somewhat of a nail biter, because every house is not created equal. Inspectors stay in business because of the lack of maintenance that most homeowners fail to comply with.  The home is an investment to which you must respect and maintain. Clients are failing to be educated by their professionals and in turn end up in law suits disputing undisclosed details that are material facts prudent to the responsibly of home ownership. The key to a happy client is trust and respect. Once those two are out the door, you really should start … (0 comments)

real estate agents: Our market is different than the rest of the country. - 12/13/10 11:04 AM
Day (202,203,204,205,206)The Housing Market forecast has predicted that the average home price of homes in California will rise by 2.0% in 2011. With that being said, the mortgage rates will increase also, not by much. However every bit adds up when it comes to financing over a 30 year period. The best time to buy is the current, too many people are stuck listening to the media. The media is taking an average of all of the 50 united states and putting them into one category. The Los Angeles market is much different than any other market in the country. Los … (0 comments)

real estate agents: Can you handle it? - 12/08/10 08:38 AM
Day (200,201)What are you trying to get out of your life?No one has the rule book on how to live life. Some claim they do, but if one man could really tell you exactly how to live 6 billion lives. WOW!  Entertain yourself, get to know yourself. And if you cannot spend ten minutes alone with yourself. How can you expect anyone to. Through building our business, and our relationship I have become very fond of who I am as a person. I know what I am capable of, I know what makes me tick, I know what I like, and … (2 comments)

(197,198,199)People do business with people they like. "Business 101"Building relationships is where you begin to  become successful. Get to know people in their comfort level and how they operate.

Building wealth and business together is much more rewarding then doing it alone. … (1 comments)

real estate agents: Relationships= Owning a Home! - 11/19/10 10:15 AM
Day (175,176,177,178)What is a Relationship? And how does that relate to real estate?The two go hand in hand. Owning a home is very much like being in a relationship. You must nurture it, comfort it, and respect it. All three elements must exist for it to be a healthy unity. From the time you first fall in love with the house, you adore it, you want to spend every waking minute with it. You clean it, and cook in it, and really feel lucky that you have found the right house. Then time goes by and you start to get busy … (1 comments)
