real estate agent: Out with the OLD and in with the NEW!!! - 10/04/18 08:45 AM
When we first opened Joy Daniels Real Estate Group 8 years ago, we invested a lot of time and attention into our branding and marketing. This included photos of myself and the team. I have relied on those initial photos for years until early 2018, we decided to refresh our signage which meant new photos.
So my "old" photo is from the spring of this year.   And funny story – I was not able to style my hair due to a recent injury and my husband actually styled my hair that day!  Our marketing is so important we want to be different, so … (21 comments)

real estate agent: Right Home - Wrong Location? - 10/21/12 10:35 PM
Don't buy the RIGHT Home in the WRONG Location  Location ~ Location ~ Location
I am pretty sure you all have heard this Real Estate quote many times before. You can redecorate, rebuild, relandscape, perhaps even modify certain aspects of a home's location, but you can't change where a home is located. (unless you move the house!)
At a minimum, make sure to avoid locations that involve high noise levels, unsavory elements, traffic, pollution, crime, poorly kept homes and decreasing property values.
Instead, look in areas where homes are appreciating and close to major employment, great schools, transportation, shopping, entertainment, restaurants … (9 comments)

real estate agent: True or False? It is a Team Effort. - 10/07/12 10:52 PM
TRUE OR FALSE?  Once you have chosen a Seller Agent to represent you in the sale of your home, and have signed a Listing Contract, you should get out of the way and let the agent find a buyer.
FALSE!  Selling a home requires involvement by the home owners as well as the Real Estate Agent.  It is a TEAM effort.  Sellers are responsible for two KEY areas:
1) pricing the home fairly with attractive terms
2) providing a home in marketable condition.
The home owner's Seller Agent is responsible for preparing and implementing a marketing plan to attract suitable Buyers.
Fair pricing is … (5 comments)

real estate agent: Agents Available! - 10/04/12 11:03 AM
We are available!
We had a 2nd smaller sign installed outside our new West Shore Real Estate Office at 3800 Market Street, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.  We have all seen and most likely many of use signs that say "Agent On Duty". . . Joy Daniels Real Estate Group would like to know for thinking outside the box, so we used "Agent Available" for our sign.   We are a team, so there will always be a licensed real estate agent (Realtor) available to speak with any vistors that come to our office.  We want to help Central Pennsylvania Buyers and Sellers accomplish their Real Estate goals.

real estate agent: The Price is Right - marketing can/will put money in your pocket! - 07/04/12 10:06 AM
The Price is Right - marketing can/will put money in your pocket!
I have been a successful Central Pennsylvania, real estate agent for a long time, (20+ years).  When I reviewed the information from the  post it was interesting to me because now Joy Daniels Real Estate Group (JDREG) is hiring  “newbies” and I felt it would be good information to share with someone just starting out. 
It’s tough to say how I would spend $500 a month in marketing, because I know I spend more, not alot more, but definitely more.  I am a strong believer that marketing is so … (17 comments)

real estate agent: IF YOUR HEART AINT IN IT WHY ARE YOU DOING IT - 02/09/12 11:25 AM
This is so true.  If you are not passionate about what you do, then you need to look into other options.  Find the right "seat on the bus" - one that is comfortable and you enjoy.  I LOVE real estate - sure there are always things that will/could irrate me, but I choose to work through the issues and move forward.  Thank you Richie Naggar.
Think about this for a while. This is rampant wherever you go. In college, people are there that do not want to be there. Some people cant stand their place of employment. Others watch children … (8 comments)

real estate agent: HAVE MANY FRIENDS! - 10/30/11 01:05 PM
Among your friends, one or more may be "in real estate".   That could create a dilemma when you decide to sell your present home. How would you decide which friend to represent you in the sale of your home?
You no doubt want to sell your home at the best possible price, in the least time and with a minimum of inconvenience. To accomplish each of those objectives, your home should be marked effectively from the beginning by a true professional.
If you choose one of your agent/friends, choose one who devotes full-time to real estate and has made a long-term … (10 comments)

real estate agent: Why I Chose Real Estate - putting the pieces of my life together! - 08/10/11 02:09 PM
      Why I Chose Real Estate - putting the pieces of my life together!
I grew up a P.K. and an Officer's Brat - so I was labeled before I could talk!  Because my father was a Chaplin in the Army we moved almost every year.  I attended 6 Elementary Schools, 1 Junior High and 2 High Schools for a total of 10 different school systems in my 13 year school tenure.   I believe that my need to make friends quickly and ability to ask questions in order to get to know someone was a huge piece of the real estate puzzle.  10+ relocations is another … (6 comments)

real estate agent: MAKE CONTACT! - 08/07/11 09:26 AM
Do you like the idea of finding your next home on the internet?  You just point and click your way to propeties of interest.  You can even take a "virtual tour" without personally visiting the home.  Very cool!
What then?  Do you also make a virtual offer using your favorite platinum VISA card?  Can you do a virtual inspection of the homes condition?  Just how far can you go without having personal contact?  Chances are good that you will not make a purchase offer before inspecting the home.
So. . . who should you call?  Rather than choosing the … (4 comments)
