ginger harper real estate agent: TGIF ToDay! - 12/08/17 08:46 AM
 
 
Well,
Today is Friday and it has been a wonderful week.  I have learned much in the way of Blogging and Facebooking.  These avenues are ways for us to learn from the experiences of others in our field.. 
 
There has been a lot of positive response from friends and associates from all over.  Everyone is kind and will help in any way that they can.
Thanks for all of your help and I truly wish you to have a marvelous weekend...enjoying family
and friends.
 
Merry Christmas!

ginger harper real estate agent: Will is sell...if you price it right? - 09/04/17 07:18 AM
 
 
One of the biggest things that we are faced with still in our area, is the dreams of what was going on in 2004 and  2005.  That day is gone.
 
What we have to do as a Realtor and as a professional is to educate our buyers as to TODAY'S Market.  We
 all sold properties in 2005 that we are having to sell for half of what they sold during the Good Ole Days!
 
When I have a seller  to call me and say that they bought in 2005 and HAVE to SELL  right a way..I just cringe.
 
Who knew?  This is a nationwide happening, not a local … (4 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: Another TGIF Day in Southport! - 04/07/17 07:14 AM
 
 
Thank the Good Lord for another Good day.
Today I am showing  property to folks that I have worked with for years.    It is good to still have folks that think you did a good job for them then and I hope that I can still do good for work them now.  I will probably sell the house that they bought from me and will sell them another house.
Then this afternoon, I will be  showing another couple 3 houses in the communities that are in the area.
I usually work with Sellers but this week..I am a Buyer's Agent.    It will be a … (1 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: Now the Day is over.. - 02/24/17 05:40 PM
 
I have been fortunate enough to work face to face with sellers today.  I had listed one of their lots and they were going to take it off the market.  I did some research for them and suggested that they leave that lot on the market...because it can't sell if no one knows it is for sale..
They then asked to see if I would list one of their other lots.  They are excited to sell and we priced it at the lowest price in the community.
There is stuff happening...
 
Thanks,

Happiness Jar

Happiness Jar was given to me this past week by our Broker in Charge.
 
She gave us the instructions to write down ONE thing each week that makes you HAPPY.
It can relate to business, family, personal reasons or any other thing that Makes YOU Happy.
 
I thought this was such a great idea and I wanted to share it with you.
 
In the Pint jar, there is a note pad with 52 pages on it.  Every week for the next 52 weeks, write down something that makes you happy.  At the end of the year, on New Years Day.....Open your jar

ginger harper real estate agent: Looking Like Christmas Here! - 12/15/16 06:04 PM
    It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. 
 
We have adopted 2 families to provide for in our office.  Each of these families have small children, that would not have a Christmas if we did not get involved.  It touches my heart to think, that even still, many children will go with out any Christmas at all. 
 
Hope that you have been able to share Christmas Good Will also.
 
Merry Christmas.

ginger harper real estate agent: Do YOU remember when.. - 12/01/16 07:34 AM
From the Past...........
 
Do you have memories similar to these that I had of my childhood.
As a young person, our family would watch TV on Saturday and Sunday evenings.  Mama would pop some popcorn and we would sit around and watch the Ed Sullivan Show.  We would see the new performers enter into the entertainment arena. There was such a wide range of entertainment for us to see.  I learned of Opera and Ballet on those occasiona along with seeing Elvis Presley for the first time and them Steve Wonder and the Jackson 5.
 
What talented these folks had.

ginger harper real estate agent: Does Blogging sell HOUSES? - 04/13/16 01:35 AM
 
I know that there is a reason that we do this..
 
One of my agents just told me that she was blogging with a friend and one of her friends...friends....saw her site and asked if she was in real estate.
 
Of course, my agent told her that she was.  They got together and my agent sold them a house.  Wow!  Don't we all wish that it was that easy! 
 
One never knows who is reading what we write.  Suppose we must make our information ans informative as possible.
 
Hope you have a great day and keep on blogging.

ginger harper real estate agent: YOU live near a Nuclear Plant? - 02/26/16 05:04 AM
 
WE have folks that come to our area to learn that we live within 10 miles of a Nuclear Plant, which supplies Power to much of the county and other surrounding counties in the area.
 
We feel compelled to let folks know that right off the bat.  Some freak out and other say, "If I gotta go, This is the way I choose"...Quick
 
It is a fact that we are close to the plant but I never think about it.  I have lived here for 35 years and we are still  happy and still in one of "North Carolina's Best Kept Secrets"..

ginger harper real estate agent: Are You Violating the Law or Ethics? - 11/05/15 03:15 AM
We have to constantly ask ourselves this question.  Are we doing all that we can and the best that we can for our clients.
Between real estate law and the code of ethics, it’s very easy to step out of your comfort zone.
 
Does anyone remember the part about putting your client’s best interest above your own? How about the part on staying within your field of expertise? If you do single family residential homes as your main service, are you even qualified to do large tracts of land? What about a multiunit apartment? What about a warehouse or big … (0 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: From the Peach tree to the Preserves... - 08/21/15 11:25 AM
Fresh PEACHES......into Peach Preverves!
 
 
And then the canning of the peaches in to preserves...Yummmm..
 
This is who we are.  We love to pick and can the wonderful vegetables and fruits that we grow or  is provided to us.
Our Son in Law brought us a box of beautiful, lucious, ripe peaches yesterday.  We have eaten all  that we can and know that the next step is to save them.
 
That means canning them into preserves.
 
The preserves we cook with out a recipe.  We do this by smell and the consistancy of the syrup.
 
When we feel that they are thick enough, we put them up in … (9 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: Do YOU let Others Waste YOU Valuable Time? - 08/14/15 04:07 AM
 
 
I just read a post from another Active Rainer regarding folks that just talk too much and waste your time when you are busier than a "one armed Paper Hanger".
 
WE have a few agents in our workplace that just like to talk and when you see them coming , you want to cringe because you have not compeleted the project that you are working on.
 
I have yet to find the right words to let them know that I am busy and do not have time to chit chat.
 
They will begin a story that goes on and on and there seems to … (2 comments)

Thank the Good Lord for another Good day.
Today I showed property to folks that I have sold to 20 years ago.  It is good to still have folks that think you did a good job for them then and I hope that I can still do good for work them now.
They are choosing to move back to Oak Island after building their dream home on the banks of a river in  Tennessee..
 
Then I have 4 "come and list my house" calls.  WE worked all afternoon going CMA's f or these 4 folks and I will g o and  see them next … (1 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: A Great Day On Caswell Beach NC - 06/28/15 10:28 AM
 
A great day today. 
I had a listing appointment yesterday morning and another one yesteday afternoon.  Took one for sure and think that I will get the next one in a day or so..  And guess what!  Got another one this afternoon and another one on Thursday.
 
I am helping to train one of our new agents and we had an appointment to list two houses.  WE will list both of them and when one sells, we will take the other on off the market.
 
Seems like our sellers are wanted to do the right thing and price their property as it should be priced.
It's a … (0 comments)

ginger harper real estate agent: Listings are the Name of the Game! - 06/18/15 09:27 AM
My advice to new agents is to join networking groups. Join as many as you possibly can.   It's a good way to get others to work for you.   When YOU have the listing..you have every agent that is a Buyers agent needing what YOU are providing.   Now you have to work for others out there also but they are in all different aspect in the of the professional work force. 
 
Get your name out there. with your listings....... people can't  buy what they can't see and don't know about.  There are so many more ideas and suggestions but I also want to see what others … (2 comments)
