agents: Your Toolkit Checklist - 10/27/09 04:22 AM
Question is - What's in your car? What tools do you carry with you in real estate. Whether it is nicely packed into a LL Bean canvas tote, in an actual toolkit, or just rolling around in the trunk of your car, we all have things we need in the day to day business of real estate.
Cable ties - They are handy in so many situations. From anchoring an open house sign to a pole so it won't fly away to making sure the brochure box is solidly attached. Use just one or chain them together to be as long … (4 comments)

agents: Talking about Yourself is Hard Work - 09/05/08 02:38 AM
Or maybe for some people it is easier than it is for me. Every time I sit down to update a brochure, letter or campaign I need to work at talking about me. It is so easy to wax poetically when it comes to houses, where are the right words to describe who I am. What is my Value Added Plan, Unique Value Proposition or Personal Profile Outline? How to keep it light with just a dash of humor. Well, I found some tips help to jiggle the old brain cells. Sharing it here, I hope it helps others jog the memory.

agents: "The New Baby" Marketing Campaign - 04/11/08 04:38 AM
"Congratulations on the New Addition to Your Family - If you have too many feet for your square footage give me a call about finding a larger home!"
That's the tag line to the marketing campaign that won me my first ever listing. It was a very cute 8.5x5.5 postcard with babies on the front. You could also use a regular greeting card to send out the same message.
It is easy to find out about new and enlarging families. Most local newspapers post them in print and on-line. They let you know the names of the father, mother, new baby and … (16 comments)

agents: April Showers bring more holidays - 03/28/08 03:42 AM
April Showers bring May Flowers! And more holidays. It is National Garden Month - how about giving seeds or annuals to your core clients. Or give out trees for Arbor Day at the end of the month. This year with gas prices it makes a lot of sense to celebrate Walk to Work Day on the 2nd. You can do a double celebration by bringing a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich with you on the walk. The 15th is the dreaded Tax Day and how ironic it is also the day the Titanic sunk! Enjoy the holiday list, I hope it … (2 comments)

agents: Positive Screen Savers - 03/27/08 01:12 AM
My Aha of the morning is to put positive affirmations and goals on the screen saver of my computer. With all the time we spend on the computer couldn't it be interesting to have a subtle reminder scroll across your computer instead of the bouncing ball.
It was easy to do - Go to the control panel and pick screen savers. When you scroll down you will see the name 'Marquee'. From there you can add your text, change the fonts, size, color and speed. It is not unlimited space but I was able to put on 6 different lines. The whole … (15 comments)

agents: Are You a Marketing Specialist or General Practioner? - 02/19/08 12:28 AM
Focus your marketing campaigns by finding your niche. After all you wouldn't go to a tax lawyer when you need a real estate lawyer to write a deed. So why be an "everything" agent when you can carve out your piece of the market to dominate. Wouldn't it be great if anytime someone thought of luxury homes yours was the first name that came to mind? Or you were known as the area condo expert? You can come up with a lot of examples for any area of what makes it special. Creating specialized web site is so easy today you can … (9 comments)

agents: Password Affirmation Magic - 11/20/07 04:13 AM
We all have a bunch of passwords in our life. More passwords than the normal brain can remember. You know the most common one - your pet's name. Easy to remember is key when creating a password. But how about making your password a positive affirmation as well? Instead of Fluffy42 think about trying 6Million or Money100 or ListingQueen or RealEstateRules or RERewards?! I bet you can come up with a ton. Think about how many times a day you put in your password just to sign on to AR now multiply that by a positive affirmation and BAM you are … (28 comments)
