I met a prospect at her mansion. She waived some official documents in my face and told me that the court ordered her to sell her home as part of her divorce. I took the listing and was well on my way to selling it, when I received a letter from the husband's attorney!  It demanded that I un-list...

For years I thought of another successful agent in my market place as a "list ‘em and leave ‘em" kind of guy.  Yes, he's a listing machine, taking over 200 listings a year!  There was a negative "buzz" about him amongst agents that I personally adopted and believed. He then joined my office.  Tur...

I'm sure we've all had the experience where someone calls and says, "My house is listed with Agent Jane Dodo (usually a family friend or relative), but feel free to show and sell it!  Here's a perfect example that I received last night via email:          Dear David, Due to the reason, that I am ...

Last week, I sent an email to the AR guys. Not because I care about my rankings here on AR, but because I felt that I was unfairly criticized. (points removed).  I provided a list of the items that are in my operations guide.  It took me years to refine and revise the guide to where it is the bib...

   I gave up blogging for points after the first two weeks on AR.  The pressure was just too great! I find that I write and contribute better when I’m doing it to provide substance of value to my fellow readers!   Today, my 6 year old son Charlie was looking at the site and asked me who “that gir...

   I don’t recall seeing processing fees discussed here.  My company charges one.  I know many companies do.  With my company, if you have your own transaction coordinator (assistant) my company refunds the processing fee to the agent.  I charge $395 per transaction side.  That accounts for an ad...

   I remember years ago, listening to a cassette tape (for those of you who don’t know what a cassette tape is, it’s the predecessor to the CD J). It was of my Grandmother whom I never met. She died before I was born.  Although I saw the occasional black and white photo of her, I really didn’t kn...

   Our profession allows us a lot of opportunities for tax deductions.  While I’m not a CPA, I avail myself of good professional help.  The most important thing to do is have a good software program. Usually Quicken or MS Money is the best bet.  If you are capable, QuickBooks is preferred by CPAs...

I was waiting for a new buyer client at the front of a hotel. We had never met each other.  I was on the mobile talking to a Realtor friend when I looked up and saw a short man standing in front of a stretch limo, doing the George Jefferson Shuffle!  I immediately hung up and ran to meet this guy...
