open houses: How to Work An Open House - 01/03/13 08:29 PM
This is an encore and revised post that I wrote a few years ago. Since it is a new year it is a good time to prepare for successful open houses. In Manhattan open houses work. I realize in some markets they don't work. This post is about working an open house not whether they work or not.
How to Work
an Open House
Treat it like a business meeting.  Dress like you’re making a presentation…because you are.  It’s irrelevant what the list price is on the property; all sellers—of mansions or of studios—deserve to have a professional represent … (84 comments)

open houses: Open Houses: Make Them Work! Work Them! - 08/29/10 01:06 AM
Lenn Harley posted a re-blog recently: Open houses - Stop lying to your client in response to an anti-open house blog that accused agents that do open houses of lying to their clients. I left a comment with 20 reasons why open houses work in Manhattan. There have been many of these angry anti-open house blogs lately and it's really getting OLD! Enough already!
Open Houses work in many markets. So rather than arguing why open houses work, this post is about how to make open houses work.

open houses: Crowds at Open Houses on Upper West Side of Manhattan Today! - 01/24/10 07:57 AM

Despite the rain, cold and dreary weather open houses were mobbed today on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Buyers are out and buyers are buying. One pre-war 2 bedroom condo priced at $1,399,000 must have had about 40 people when I arrived with my buyers just 15 minutes after it opened.
About 30 people were at the 2 bedroom 2 bath apartments on the third floor of a post-war full service luxury building. One 2 bedroom condo that came on the market the beginning of the week at $1,150,00 that I showed Wednesday evening is already in contract … (5 comments)

open houses: Real Estate is Local: Local! Local! Local! - 12/19/07 04:08 AM

Real Estate is Local, Stupid (original title)
In Manhattan
Recently I've noticed a change in Activerain. It's the tone of some bloggers, they're angry arrogant and hostile. Opinions and personal experiences are written as though they are facts. Commenters that disagree are attacked.
Many posts have been written about "Open Houses" on activerain during the past year. Some agents loathe them some agents such as myself love them - I love to throw a party and to work a room.
I never realized hosting an Open House was controversial. Last night I came across a blog bashing open houses … (84 comments)
