real estate: What do Football & Real Estate Have In Common? - 09/14/13 04:31 AM
                       What do Football & Real Estate Have In Common?
As I watched the opening week games, I ponder this question.
Both require dedication, hard work and perseverance.  Professional Real Estate, like Professional Football, is not a part-time job or a hobby.  It is a career.  Both require study and a willingness to learn more than is required.  Football players watch tapes, listen to experts and drill.  The best study & practice a ridiculous amount of time.  We have a heard about the athletes that show up two hours before the rest of the … (2 comments)

real estate: Listings Stale? Sellers Anxious? …or… How to save your commissions! - 09/02/13 02:20 AM
We’ve all been there. 
You listed that property (Residential, Commercial, Farm, Ranch, Land) with the intention of getting it sold quickly at the best possible price.  It doesn’t matter why at this point, but the property has not sold.  The seller might be making noises about moving the listing to another agent; they also may be working on just that, without your knowledge.
The only thing worse than sharing your commissions is getting NO commission.  If I gave you an opportunity to save some of your commissions and not only keep your client, but become a hero to them AND keep … (0 comments)

real estate: This Is Why I Do What I Do! - 08/31/13 05:44 AM
This Is Why I Do What I Do!

Every once in a while I get hit over the head with a reminder of why real estate is the best career ever.  I had that experience again this week.

My clients have been on quite the roller coaster.  We found a buyer for their current home, found a  great deal on a home they loved.  The seller of the home they were buying, which she was giving up after 30 years, was able to bump another buyer to get the perfect home near her daughter’s.  Everything was moving along … (0 comments)

Four offers in two days on two short sale listings. I am exhausted and clearly out of shape! It doesn't help that one of the banks changed their forms and process last week which has me chasing my tail, or that the other bank is bound and determined to send me to the funny farm. Then of course there are the sellers, feeling lost, … (1 comments)

real estate: SPAM… The Other Side Of The Coin - 03/28/12 11:56 AM
Are you so determined to block the perceived spam from your peers that you are missing transactional emails?  Blacklist carefully.  The email you send to your spam folder may have important information.
Scenario 1.  Agent Smith sent me an email about his broker’s open that was totally out of my normal selling area.  Rather than opting out I just blocked his emails.  It was quick and efficient.  Two months later Agent Smith sent me a inquiry on a property I had listed that could have resulted in a full price sale for my seller.  I never saw it.  It was in … (2 comments)

real estate: Are You Illegally Spamming The Public And/Or Your Peers? - 03/22/12 09:13 AM
I have heard complaints about emails received from realtors® that are not in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. 

CAN-SPAM defines a "commercial electronic mail message" as "any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service (including content on an Internet website operated for a commercial purpose)."   It exempts "transactional or relationship messages."
Each separate email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties of up to $16,000, and more than one person may be held responsible for violations. For example, both the … (3 comments)
