anaheim real estate: Don't forget to take time for yourself - 08/26/09 07:50 AM
In this busy, crazy, mixed up real estate profession it's so easy to work 24/7. You will go nuts if you don't schedule time out. Don't loose sight of the important things in life. Stop and smell the roses. That's what has kept me going for the last 22 years. Always, make yourself a priority. That 10:30 call with the offer can wait until tomorrow. It's not a life threatening situation...I'm not saying: "Don't give it all you've got" but evaluate the situation and FIGURE IT OUT.
Have a GREAT day!

Then on the following Friday as I'm picking up my son and some of his freshman friends from high school, I get a call from a gentleman interested in seeing the property. I make arrangements with the kids to hang out together while I go show the house, but when I get there, I recognize the man. He was a real estate agent I had met at a fundraiser … (18 comments)

anaheim real estate: Advertising Dollars: Where are they best spent? - 05/31/07 06:50 AM
It seems that the general opinion on dollars spent on advertising is to localize the ads for listings rather than go to the larger publications, such as the "Times". I asked the experts and the answers I received was that most of the attention, 65% of the action on a listing, comes from the actual sign on the property, with the flyer box. The next best suggestion was to go to the web. Most agents find that their clients are relying on web sites, such as Realtor.com, to find the home on their own. If this is the case, why are so many agents … (9 comments)
