kathleen daniels: ActiveRain November 2018 Thanksgiving Challenge | Day 8 - 11/19/18 05:37 PM
This is Kathleen Daniels Day 8 entry into the ActiveRain challenge. We've been asked to share the joys, what blesses us the most, and why it is a blessing.  
 
 
 
Day 8 is about the blessing of meditation. Specifically, Dr. Joe Dispenza! 
I've been meditating for years! Earlier this year I encountered a life event that caused me much stress.  Life, in general, can be stressful. Real estate most certainly can be stressful. 
The life event tipped the stress scales for me.  The silver lining and blessing in that stressful event was that I discovered Dr. Joe Dispenza.  He was exactly what I needed and he came to me at … (8 comments)

Kathleen Daniels is thankful for her SEO Queen, Corinne Guest!  
This is Day 7 entry into the ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debbie Reynolds. We've been asked to share the joys, what blesses us the most, and why it is a blessing.  
 
 
 
This was not on my radar or to-do list for today yet I am following my heart and writing this post in the moment while I am feeling my gratitude. I say in the moment because I noticed that Corinne’s SEO Case Study post got featured. 
 
I am so thankful for Corinne, her true expertise in WordPress, SEO, Schema Markup and more. Working together has … (10 comments)

This is Day 6 entry into the ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debbie Reynolds. We've been asked to share the joys, what blesses us the most, and why it is a blessing.  
 
 
 
Day 6 - Crap-Gratitude - And a Sense of Humor! 
Once upon a time, a very long time ago, when I was a college student, the professor told a case management story. At the end of the story, she said: "The feces literally hit the fan."  The entire room roared in laughter.  
I raised my hand and asked:  "What is feces?"  … (13 comments)

Kathleen Daniels is a Realtor and Broker-Manager of KD Realty and NeedProbateHelp in San Jose.  
This is Day 4 entry into the ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debbie Reynolds. We've been asked to share the joys, what blesses us the most, and why it is a blessing.  
 
 
 
Day 4 - I am so thankful for the blessing of my home. This rings particularly true in light of my awareness that so many California residents lost their home last year in the Santa Rosa fire and this year in the fires that are still ongoing in Malibu and the fire that destroyed the small town of Paradise.

This is Day 2 entry into the ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debbie Reynolds. We've been asked to share the joys, what blesses us the most, and why it is a blessing.  
 
 
 
Day 2 is sharing more of what brings joy to my heart. Several months ago I was looking for a place closer to my home to relocate a rooster I rescued Thanksgiving weekend last year.  Anyone who knows me knows that Half Moon Bay is my happy place on earth.  
In my searching, I found Sweet Farm. While they … (12 comments)

Day 3 - I would certainly be remiss if I did not include being a breast cancer survivor in my Thanksgiving gratitude. I am certainly blessed beyond measure to have kicked cancer in the backside. I've lost many friends to the cancer beast.  Far too many are not as fortunate as I am to be alive and thriving over six … (15 comments)

Day 1 starts with the biggest joy and blessing in my life. That is the gift of my son.  Ironically, today, November 10th is the day I married my son’s father 40 years ago! While the marriage was short-lived, it lived long enough for my husband and me to be blessed with our beautiful son. 
 
 
The day our son was born … (9 comments)

kathleen daniels: How Much House Can I Afford? What Every Homebuyer Needs to Know - 05/13/18 09:10 AM
Peter Mark wrote an epic post about what every buyer needs to know - how much can they afford when buying a home. This is a must read regarding home affordability for every home buyer across the nation. Thank you, Peter Mark!
San Jose home buyers are wise to read this post and take notes. Buyers need to work with a local lender and a local agent to create a successful home buying strategy.
I will share my local knowledge about what’s expected of buyers in the San Jose and Silicon Valley market. My lending partner will get you pre-approved for your loan.

kathleen daniels: How Does Kathleen Daniels Make An Agent Referral? - 03/27/18 05:36 PM
Making agent referrals is not a random process.
The steps I take in choosing the right referral agent
For the most part, when someone needs an agent out of the area, my mind immediately thinks of an ActiveRain member. My mind has learned to “map” where my favorite AR peeps live and work. 
If I need to make a referral to an area where someone in the AR community does not immediately come to mind, I will call an ActiveRain member in the general area and ask if they know of someone they can confidently recommend in the area.
 
  
I recently needed to make a … (11 comments)

kathleen daniels: Susan Haughton, Alexandria, VA Realtor® - 03/11/18 10:15 AM
It’s amazing to me how we connect with people in the ActiveRain community in ways that are truly unexplainable.  I called Susan Haughton, Alexandria Real Estate Agent, as part of the ActiveRain March challenge. 
 
 
Susan has found that perfect synergy in a real estate partner, Mindy.  How she describes it is exactly what I would like to find in a real estate partner.  Simply stated, what Susan loves to do and is very good at doing, her partner does not like doing and does not do it well.  The opposite is true about her real estate partner.  They divide and conquer!  And … (21 comments)

kathleen daniels: No Sales Activity in the Colony Green Community in January 2018 - 02/20/18 02:00 PM

 
There was no sales activity in the Colony Green condo community in January 2018. The lack of inventory of homes and condos for sale in Blossom Valley San Jose continue to create multiple offers and bidding wars on the few homes that are for sale. Many buyers are simply giving up.
Sellers, on the other hand, are cashing in on offers substantially over asking price often with no contingencies.  
When a condo is listed buyers need to move quickly and be prepared to compete to win the bidding war. 
Colony Green Homeowners enjoy beautiful sunsets and close proximity to Martial Cottle Park.

kathleen daniels: Kathleen Daniels' Love Extends Far Beyond a Real Estate Transaction - 02/18/18 03:42 PM
We are asked to share a transaction that was special to us - what we LOVED about it and share what we learned from the transaction without compromising confidentiality.  
When I read the contest rules there were several transactions that came immediately to my mind. The first transaction I shared is:
What's not to love about working with past clients. 
The second transaction I shared is attending a Celebration of Life.  
When a Clients' Needs Extend Beyond Real Estate  
I worked with clients that shared some deeply personal issues they were experiencing with family.  They did not know what to do. Well-intending friends were advising them … (20 comments)

kathleen daniels: Kathleen Daniels Delivers Olympic Gold Performance For Clients - 02/16/18 05:32 PM
The spring market is not necessarily Kathleen Daniels' busiest time of the year. It could be said that the San Jose Silicon Valley Real Estate Market is almost always a “spring market”, not just in terms of the spring-like weather we enjoy during the winter months, but because Kathleen Daniels, lists homes for sale, and helps buyers at a steady pace all year round. 
My busy times therefore are not seasonal. My busy time starts nearly every day when I arise in the early morning. I have a daily routine which starts with making my bed. That small task makes a big … (24 comments)

kathleen daniels: February 2018 ActiveRain Marketing Challenge - 02/01/18 03:47 PM
Jeff Dowler is hosting a marketing challenge contest in February 2018. 
For this ActiveRain contest, Jeff asks us to share 3 parts of our marketing:
Part 1 is to share a loser marketing effort Part 2 is to share a winner marketing strategy Part 3 is to share a new marketing strategy for 2018  
The Biggest Loser Marketing Effort 
My biggest loser was a niche website.  The concept is great. The market is definitely there. This mistake was due to my failure to make a better decision in terms of who to hire.  The delays in getting the site launched were costly enough. Adding … (18 comments)

kathleen daniels: Kathleen Daniels Is Making 2018 The Best Year Yet! - 01/20/18 05:03 PM

Debbie Reynolds is hosting a January 2018 challenge - Making 2018 the Best Year Yet.  
Debbie challenges us to pick 3 goals or things we are going to pursue this year that are important to us and explain why we chose the goals and why they are important to us.  
 
January 2018 marks my 15th year real estate anniversary.  I am also entering my 7th year as Independent Broker-Owner of KD Realty in San Jose. January certainly represents "new beginnings" for me. 
 
2018 will be my best year yet! It is already off to an amazing start.
