kanabec county real estate: What Is That Orange Horse Thing in Mora? - 07/10/07 08:57 AM
What a great question!
First, I'll show you what Wikipedia says:
"A Dalecarlian horse (Swedish: Dalahäst) is a traditional wooden statuette of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. In the older days the dala horse was mostly a toy for children, but nowadays it is used as a symbol for Dalarna or sometimes the whole of Sweden."
The Dala Horse was originally a toy, created by woodworkers for their children.  Most often they were made of scraps left over from the creation of clocks, since that was a primary source of income in that era.
Horses were important, also, in that … (1 comments)

kanabec county real estate: How's The Market Up There in Mora? - 07/10/07 08:04 AM
I hear this question a lot.  What can I say, other than the truth? 
It is a great market in Mora, Minnesota right now.
It is great to be a Realtor in Mora Minnesota, too.
I am just loving this market.
Being a fairly new agent, I missed the real estate boom, where you sold things the day after you listed it for $20,000 more than the asking price.  I came in fighting, and I love it.
The market in Mora did notice a slight increase in business during this time, along with a slight decrease in the last year.  When I first began at … (0 comments)

kanabec county real estate: Five Days Off? Are You Kidding Me??? - 05/24/07 10:41 AM
I am a real estate agent through and through.  I took to it like a duck to water.
Cell phone?  Check.
Obsession with office voicemail?  Check.
PA's and listing agreements neatly compiled in my car?  Check.
So naturally, when my fiancee, Nick, said he wanted to go camping for Memorial Weekend...... I asked how long we would be gone.
We do this every year, and I've always been super excited.
Right now I'm having a panic attack.
We're leaving tonight, coming back sometime on TUESDAY.  TUESDAY, people!
I'm freaking out.
What if someone calls?  What if there is a question that someone needs answered?  What if a PA comes in????
WHAT IF … (15 comments)

kanabec county real estate: Top Ten Reasons to Use a Local REALTOR - 05/21/07 06:29 AM
10. A local REALTOR knows the competition in your price range in your area - VERY well.
9. A local REALTOR can frequently update pictures in the MLS as the seasons and scenery change.
8. A local real estate agent often has buyers in the area, resulting in more showings right away, and possibly a quicker closing.

When you click on "My Home" at the top of your screen, what do YOU see?
I know what I see. I see today's most recent blogs. It's what's to the right that shocks me.
My subscribed blogs. Millions upon millions of subscribed blogs.

kanabec county real estate: My Flyers! My Expired Letter! It's ME You Want To Talk To!!! - 05/17/07 07:12 AM
I have a problem, and it's very perplexing. I flyer, I farm, and I send out expired letters.
There IS response. That's not the problem.
The problem is that they don't remember who I am.
The call the office or stop by. They remember RE/MAX. Most don't admit that it was a flyer that made them stop here. But as they call or come in and are describing the place, I'm thinking "I flyered them! They haven't worked with anyone, they don't ask for anyone, what am I doing wrong????"
They end up talking to whoever is on floor, which so far has not been … (90 comments)

kanabec county real estate: Can't We All Be Friends???? - 05/15/07 07:20 AM
I love going out and meeting other agents.  I love learning about them, seeing their listings, the way they act, things they do to stage a home... I just love it. 
For example.  Recently, an agent called our office and talked to our broker.  Her office is in Ramsey, and she has a listing here in Mora.  The hard part about that is that you aren't familiar with the competition.  I feel sorry for her, because she called our broker, saying that she had gotten feedback from one of the agents here in the office, and their opinion was that it … (8 comments)

kanabec county real estate: MySpace networking - just isn't AR, is it? - 05/10/07 09:44 AM
I have been MySpace networking for months upon months.  Before I was even licensed, I was making friends "in the biz" on MySpace.  But has it helped?
I've gotten a few leads off of myspace.  They have been cold leads, but they are still some.  I just maintain my presence, helpful attitude, and girly layout.  I blog, I add more friends, I comment for birthdays.  Somehow, however, I find I would rather spend my time on AR.
AR gives me rankings in google searches, knowledge, opinions, and fun.  I have become spoiled, looking no further than blogs for marketing ideas, advice on farming, and … (20 comments)

kanabec county real estate: You Crazy Cat! - 05/10/07 07:24 AM

I don't know what to do about "Briggy Monster".
She has turned into a monster.  Recently I came home to a window carelessy left open by Nick, and a screen sliced open by Briggs.
I was quite upset.
A week later, I came home after dark, and standing in the middle of the road was none other than Briggy.  Examination of the house showed that another window (NICK!) was left open, and Briggy pushed the screen out.
Last night I came home, and Nick was outside.  I went in the house, and there was no sign of Briggy.  I raced around, checking all the windows, … (32 comments)

kanabec county real estate: Why I Love Working For My Broker! - 05/08/07 04:23 AM
Some people say "Joslyn, you didn't even bother to look at other companies.  What were you thinking???"
I was thinking that I knew who I trusted, and knew I loved this office.
Some of you know, and some of you don't, that I started here as the receptionist.  I had interviewed for a position as a receptionist elsewhere, but didn't get hired.  An ex-broker had interviewed, and got the position. 
When I started here, I wasn't sure how it was going to go.  Everyone watched everything I did, and didn't trust me a bit.  That faded with time.  I just watched and observed.  … (8 comments)

kanabec county real estate: Why I Don't Take Pictures For Other REALTORS Anymore! - 05/08/07 03:22 AM

Don't know about the contest?  Check it out here!
I have a manufactured home that needs to be moved, and was discussing with another agent in my office how it may be beneficial to do a combined ad in the paper with my manufactured and a plot of land that she has listed where a manufactured home would be okay to move in.  She, like me, … (28 comments)

kanabec county real estate: HomeGain - anyone familiar? - 05/07/07 07:47 AM
I've found that when I search google for "real estate agent Mora Minnesota", I'm only topped by two things. One is GMAC real estate (No problem, I'll overcome that obstacle soon!!!) and the other is homegain.  I went online and checked it out, but I was curious if anyone here on AR is familiar with it.  It boasts getting so many leads a month, but I don't know how I'd get that many leads considering the area that I'm working.  I live in a small town, after all.  I also wonder how I'm going to knock them down in the searches.   I … (82 comments)
