Agents sometimes do things that, to an outsider, and sometimes even to other agents, might seem to be a waste of time. For instance, I drove an hour each way yesterday for a 45 minute meeting with a client and a builder. The home will not even be started until late Summer. And you know what? I wa...
I have recently spoken to several clients about listing their homes. Inevitably, the question about when to list comes up. I have found that the most successful listings are those that go on the market only after the homes have been prepared for market. What does this mean? It means being show re...
