I was complaining to my coach, Bob Corcoran at Corcoran Coaching about how I think my buyers agents aren’t responding quick enough to leads.  He reminded me of NAR’s statistics that say that if you respond to internet leads with-in 15 minutes, you have an 85% chance of converting that lead.  Furt...

I always get a laugh when I pass an agent on the road with his/her company license plate.  I think, ok, that agent is with Coldwell Banker or Keller Williams or Century 21, but who are they? If I was a consumer, who would I call? Ok, so suppose I like the vibrant blue color of Coldwell Banker’s l...

We are all familiar with the typical ways to generate business, mail-outs, yard signs, magazine ads, tele-prospecting, newspapers, etc. There are other “outside of the box” ways to generate business.  Become the expert in the area.

Unless the escrow deposit is completely ridiculous, like $500 or $1000, I usually don’t recommend to my clients that they counter.  I do, however, explain that it’s usually difficult to keep a deposit. The buyer just needs to back out by following the contract cont...

I run a lot of listing appointments. I get most of them.  On occasion I don’t go for the close.  I know I should be whipping out the listing agreement and asking for the order but sometimes I’m just not up for it!  I want the listing but I just don’t make the effort to close. When I get an object...

I figured out the key to a restful night sleep! I usually get a great night of restful sleep so when I don’t, I analyze why! Here’s what I came up with:1)  Always make a list of things to do before you go to sleep. This way you won’t stay up and worry about what you need to accomplish the next da...

If you haven't already noticed, Teri Isner is a day away of blogging from taking over the number one spot on Active Rain! It's super hard to move up in positions when you get close to the top! I would say it's certainly deserved as Teri writes well though-out blogs and relevant comments, not to m...

For the past 13 years, my computer desktop has been a picture of tropical waters with an island on one side with a palm tree and a sail boat on the other. Most of you have this image pre-installed with Windows, called Azul.  I’ve had this picture on my home, office and laptop computers. I would s...

For those of you who read my earlier blog about an email I received from a Turkish "buyer" who wanted me to send him "clear pictures" of a listing so that he could buy it, I would like to bring you up to date. We had a few more emails where he asked for more information about a specific property....
