real estate rocks: A Florida Real Estate Agent's Impossible Task......Home "Listings" and Money... We Spend or Not Spend on Advertising Is there a "Win Win" anywhere? - 11/11/07 03:07 PM
I am a real estate agent in Port Saint Lucie Florida. I started over three years ago in a Local Rental office as a receptionist. I found I liked the business so I got my license. I saw an immediate change in how I was treated in the "office" . I could not longer answer the phone because people thought I was going to steal leads. Even though I worked honestly for them for over a year. I changed to an office that taught by motivating you and teaching about getting listings. I stayed as long as I could because the … (0 comments)

real estate rocks: With High Taxes and High Home Owners Insurance Why Buy? - 09/17/07 10:47 AM
I have been spending most of my time renting homes that were bought in the big bubble.

The Owners would not let him bring his working dogs, or let him , at his own expense, make a ramp to get in the door. I searched for … (0 comments)

real estate rocks: How Can We Sell Upside Down Homes and Have Buyers and Sellers Happy - 07/10/07 01:31 PM
The market has so many homes that were bought at 100% financing and now the payments and taxes are sky rocketing. They turn to us to sell their home so they can hopefully not foreclose. I find the sellers want us to lower our commission and cut costs but still sell the home. If by chance you find a buyer, the sale is very fragile until the day of closing. The mortgage brokers will give a denial of a loan without a real denial if the customer wants out. I find this disturbing. The Buyers even want it all, they want … (17 comments)
