gerken associates: Our Open House Invite Mailer - 11/10/07 03:53 AM
Carol Turpin, our Office Administrator, split up all the major duties that needed to be completed before our open house celebration and gave us our assignments. One of my tasks included designing the Open House invite mailer. Fortunately I don't work for the corporate world anymore and therefore don't have to go through the bureaucracy of getting things approved. Given the time frame for this project (less than two hours!), I thought it turned out pretty well:

gerken associates: 25+ Listings And Still Rockin' Them Out - 06/09/07 09:48 AM

Now at over 25 listings, I'm finding if I continue this momentum, it'll be hard to maintain the same high-level of service when I only had ten. How do other agents handle many listings, yet maintain consistency in client satisfaction? 
If I didn't have a closing broker and strong office staff support, I'd definitely stop at 25. But I've got two more listing appointments scheduled for Monday and will keep listing until it's not feasible to take on anymore. Quality service is important to me and it's one of the top competitive advantages our Independent firm offers.
Of course, then there are the buyers too. How do agents take on more of them when so active with sellers? Should you focus … (4 comments)

gerken associates: Nothin' like a good testimonial to make your day! - 02/13/07 12:01 PM
Testimonials are great, aren't they? I received this one in my email from some folks we just helped get under contract today! I can't wait to see what they write once the deal closes and they move into their new home.
"I hope that I am not being too much of a bother to you and Kay. I do know this is real comfort to Jack and I to know that you and Kay are there for us guiding us through this maze helping us to do it the right way. It's a sweet thing to know that there are good people in Branson like ya'll. God really blessed … (1 comments)

gerken associates: Supporting our community - 12/14/06 07:09 AM
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of presenting a check in the amount of $1,000 to Joan Westfall, Director of C.A.M. (Christian Action Ministries). C.A.M. represents an alliance between several area churches, business leaders and local residents to help those in need in emergency situations. C.A.M. relies solely on the generosity of members in the community to enable their services to continue. Gerken & Associates, a proud supporter of C.A.M. since its 1985 inception, has contributed over $15,000 in donations.
