Hey there,
Tim here. How are things? Are you looking forward to summer? It's been pretty warm here in the SF Bay Area. Perfect weather for an iced tea.

cma: They'll List With Or Without You: Your Pick! - 03/21/16 09:25 AM
 
Need some Monday motivation? Here are a few quick words of advice from our VP of Sales & Marketing.
Just because most of your business comes from referrals does not mean that those referrals don’t get curious and deserve information.

They have a functioning brain that is capable of remembering your name first over the 2 other real estate agents they know. And because they have a functioning brain, they DO get curious. Curiosity causes them to seek out answers WITH or WITHOUT you.
So ask yourself this question: If my intelligent, information gathering, homeowner’s deserve answers, would you rather those answers come from … (0 comments)

*Keep in mind... Having in-hand conversation-starters and content to smoothly navigate through phone calls can undoubtedly lessen your anxiety and improve the quality of your relationships.
 
However, the trick is to not come off as "scripted" in your tone and delivery. Be professionally casual and honest. Ad libbing is a nice touch, too! Need someone to "rehearse" with? We're all ears.*

As you may know, 2016 is a presidential election year. But we won’t get into that.

We’re asking: what positive traits do agents and political figures have in common?
If you stop and think about it, quite a few - and in the best way imaginable.
Both roles require a passion for representing and achieving the best interests of people, authentic and effective communication skills, confidence, integrity, and, of course, a special kind of warmth and charisma.
 
Also parallel to the political arena, catchy slogans, ads and gimmicks in real estate only get you so far.
Similar to voters, your leads and clients don’t want … (0 comments)

Did you know:
In New York it's a legal requirement for a seller to disclose if a property
under inspection is believed to be haunted by ghosts?
Speaking of sellers we’d like to put a big listings-related myth to rest.

Myth: ALL sellers work with the same agent they bought with in the past.

Fact: ONLY 11% of homeowners turn to the same agent when selling or listing. Scary, huh?
