Okay ... so you've gotten into the habit of writing a few BLOGS per week ... maybe you even write one daily, but what gets you "In The ZONE" to create that routine BLOG? 
What inspires you? Do you have a schedule you follow?

kernersville realtor: Tips For Keeping Your Christmas Tree Fresh Longer - 11/27/18 07:39 PM
Make a Fresh Cut When You Get Home ...
After a tree is cut it immediately begins to seal up again so when you get home - right before you put it into the tree stand - make a fresh cut by cutting off about one inch to allow it to absorb lots of water once it's in the tree stand.
Choose a Nice Cool Spot ...
Choose a spot away from direct sunlight and away from the fireplace and direct heat source to keep it from drying out faster.
Feed It ...
Some people believe that adding corn syrup to the water or even an aspirin … (0 comments)

It has grown in popularity … (1 comments)

They already know what and where they want ...Millennials will do lots of research before ever contacting you so they will already know the area they want and possiblly even the exact neighborhood so you need to be an expert in the area.
Text don't call ... Phone calls are an inconvenience and they definitely prefer to be notified via text instead of phone. If a call is still necessary than text prior to the call to prepare them.  
 Have a good social media presence ... Social Media is like the modern day "happy hour", "cocktail party" or "mixer". Make sure you are tapped into … (2 comments)

kernersville realtor: Why NOW Is The Right Time To Sell Your Home - 11/05/18 07:39 PM
There are some home buyers in the market that must buy for tax purposes.
During the Holiday Season there are typically less homes on the market. Less supply means less competition. Less competition means more money in your pocket. 
Many people have time off during the Holidays, which increases their availability to see homes. Buyers that buy during the Holiday Season tend to be serious buyers.
Buying is an emotional purchase and emotions tend to run high during the Holiday Season. Having the opportunity to work off a buyer’s emotion can work in your favor.
The Holiday Season reminds many people … (2 comments)
