It's Nice to Be Appreciated
One of lead generation services I used contacted me late yesterday with a client who needed follow up right away.  We discussed the details of this potential client, and I agreed to take the lead.
His number one complaint was that he had reached out to the listing agent several times about a listing and received no response.  He had literally called her each day for several days.  I assured him that I would try my best to find out what was happening with the listing he liked and get back to him as soon as … (10 comments)

Is Selling A HUD Home A Good Thing?  
I recently read a comment on another post that said '...I will never sell a HUD home.'  Wow!  To me that was pretty strong.  And I know other agents who will never 'fool around' with a HUD contract.  There is a lot of coordination on the selling side of the transaction between getting the contract in on time, setting the property for inspection, and so forth.  I get it - some agents just do not want to be bothered with all of the 'steps'.
However, I think it is a WONDERFUL thing to … (2 comments)
