columbia sc real estate: You Don't Make Yourself Look Better by Badmouthing Fellow Agents - 01/25/18 12:58 PM
  One thing is for sure in this business, you will sometimes run into agents that do not fit the mold you deem appropriate. Either they are unsure of how to negotiate repairs, unclear on how to complete paperwork, or not responsive enough. Sometimes you can clearly tell that agents are taking up practices that are not allowed.
  That being said if you can tell a Realtor is breaking the law, by all means turn them into the LLR. We have enough trouble with our reputation when it comes to the general public, we don't need any additional help looking bad … (30 comments)

columbia sc real estate: It Doesn't get Easier...You Just get Better. - 01/21/18 01:22 PM
  It doesn't get easier, you just get better. It's a statement that I have heard many times and mostly in reference to exercise. When you first start lifting weights or running, you may find it very difficult to do what seems like a small task. However, as you continue to run or lift you will notice that in no time you can run a little further or lift a little more weight. The more you do, the more you can do.
  Well, real estate is really no different. When you first start out, that phone can seem really heavy as you … (7 comments)

columbia sc real estate: Is Your Real Estate Info Locally Sourced and Sustainable - 01/17/18 09:31 AM
  We all know the hot button phrases when it comes to food right? Certified organic, sustainable, gluten-free. The fact of the matter is that these days the world has rightfully gone crazy for locally sourced food and a farm to table mentality. A focus on local goods helps tremendously with the local economy and goes a long way to ensuring that you have fresh produce.
  So during this movement towards local focus, are you ensuring that your real estate information is also coming from a local and sustainable source?
 
 
These days national websites such as Zillow and the like are more popular … (1 comments)

columbia sc real estate: The Best System for Your Real Estate Business - 10/14/17 02:26 PM

 I get the question fairly often from newer agents and those that are simply curious as to the ends and out of the business. "What system works the best." Everyone wants to know what that magic bullet is that will pour in a steady stream of high quality leads that quickly become sold stickers on listing sign and eager pre-approved buyers beating down the door to your office begging for a home. 
 
 Is Zillow worth the Money? Maybe it's Market Leader or Bold leads? Who is the beast bang for the buck and the best system out there. Simply put, it's the system that you're … (0 comments)

columbia sc real estate: Guaranteed Return Call from Disappearing Buyers - 10/13/17 01:57 PM
 Ok, let's face, there's really no such thing as a guarantee in this business. Like for example when you start working with a buyer, just because they seem excited and get approved, there is no real guarantee that they will actually buy, or that they will buy with you. In fact, sometimes buyers simply vanish without a trace or an explanation. If this hasn't happened to you yet, hang in there and chances are you'll see what I mean.
 
  After nearly 11 years in the trenches and more than one vanishing client, you start to learn a few tricks or at the very least … (2 comments)

columbia sc real estate: When was the Last Time You Washed a Rental Car? - 01/04/14 12:25 AM
      I talk to a lot of people about the pride of  home ownership. I am obviously a firm believer in the concept. It never ceases to amaze me that throughout these discussions I still hear people claim that there is no difference in the pride you have for a home that you own and a house that you rent.
       I like to ask these people a simple question. When was the last time you washed a rental car? Most people do not spend that much time making a rental car look nice, because quite frankly, it's not their … (6 comments)

columbia sc real estate: Is Your Pissing Contest Really Worth It? - 07/12/12 04:15 AM
                          Is Your Pissing Contest Really Worth It?                     
  Once and a while in this business you will come across  individuals that are for lack of a better way to put it, difficult. I know it comes as a surprise, but trust me it happens. And once and a while, these people will be vital to the process of selling or closing a home. Another agent that rubs you the wrong way, a buyer or seller that's a little beyond demanding. Maybe a lender or an appraiser that finds a soapbox for one reason or another and decides … (8 comments)

columbia sc real estate: The Ball is Always in Your Court - 01/13/12 06:24 AM
  I overheard a conversation the other from a gentleman in sales, that he had contacted a prospect a month ago and heard nothing in return. His friend went on to ask him if he had tried to contact the prospect again, and the salesman replied no that the ball was in the other guy's court now. He seemed quite angry that he had received no return call yet he also seemed unwilling to make a second call himself. He was content to simply brush aside this prospect and move on.
 Well guess what, if you want business then the ball … (9 comments)

columbia sc real estate: It's Not About You - 12/06/11 06:18 AM

 
 
 One of the most difficult hurdles I have seen agents in this business get over is themselves. That's right, I am talking to you. It's not an easy thing to do, I will be the first to admit. But at some point, you are going to have to get over yourself in order to have any success at all and that's regardless of the market.
 Now give me a moment to explain. I'm not just talking about your ego, Lord knows there are times when my head will fill a room too. You also have to get over … (49 comments)
