ginger harper realtor: TGIF ToDay! - 12/08/17 08:46 AM
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 realtor: Do you play ""? - 11/29/17 07:39 AM
This is one of the best mind game sites that I have found.  It just sharpens your wits a bit.  World history, famous painting,  math, etc.  For every grain of rice that you gather in points ...will go toward feeding the hungry of the world.
Try it.  You will get hooked.

ginger harper realtor: 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 realtor: Have YOU ever taught a class to New Agents? - 09/01/17 12:16 PM
Since I have been in this glorious business for nearly 36 years, I have decided that I would like to become a mentor for the new agents that are coming into the office.
I have been to all of the classes and I have taken the refresher courses over and over again...(Sweathogs, Smart, DeLuca, Buffini etc..) and I love the learning of the ideas and processes that the Professionals think we should all know in order to be successful.
There are great points with all of these programs, but common sense is vital also along with some basic knowledge.
I am looking forward to … (0 comments)

ginger harper realtor: Do you still get Linking Points? - 07/15/17 05:32 PM
I am still curious and wondering how to get Linking points in the system.  I have worked on this for an
hour or so with no success.  I do not understand what a tag is either. '
Tags are not key words.
I know that some of you are laughing at this old dog learning new tricks.  But at least I am
willing to learn.
With warm regards,

ginger harper realtor: Open Houses this weekend.. - 03/29/17 07:49 AM
    Our Company, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage~are holding an " Open House Extravaganza" this weekend and many of us are paticipating.    I held 5 Open Houses with the help of my sellers.  They are excited to do anything that they can do in order to get the exposure for their houses too.  Open Houses are a little more successful than they have been in previous years.  Maybe the weather has something to do with that.
Historically, Open Houses have not been that successful but I am seeing more folks coming now that they days are warmer and longer.
Hope your … (2 comments)

ginger harper realtor: 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...

ginger harper realtor: 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 realtor: What Do YOU Do To have a FEATURED Post? - 12/08/16 07:56 AM
I am stilll trying to be successful with AR and try new things a lot.
I see where some of our folks get to have a featured post.  Is th
at measured from the content of the post, or the number of hits or what?
I read them and think that they had written an exceptional post and enjoy them.
Any hints or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Just wondering.

ginger harper realtor: Are YOU finding YOUR Buyers to be Fickled? - 12/06/16 04:55 PM
     After working on a transaction for over a month, (I represent the seller) the buyers of this property that I have for sale, decided 2 days before closing, to get a mortgage on the property.  Have you ever had anything like that to happen to you?  It was sold and accepted as a cash transaction.  That is the reason that it was accepted by the seller. 
It seems like everyone is trying to rewrite the rules of Real Estate.  Don't know if you are experiencing it or not....but I sure am..

ginger harper realtor: The Legend of the Candy Cane! - 12/05/16 07:09 AM
This is too good not to share.  At this time of year, many of us are running around trying to get the things done that we feel need to be done. Guess what.  Many of those things that we try to get done, really are not that important.  We need to reflect on our lives and the lives of those around us.  Life is short and precious. 
We need to be greatful for the abundance of grace that has been given to us.

     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.
We found them a great home in a retirement community and they are so happy to be back HOME in Southport NC.
