Nerdin Gardens: A gardener's work is never done!
 
 
Though vines, stems and trees are now barren, getting ready for the next growing cycle is crucial for future gardening success. Not many people see all the behind the scenes preparation taking place season to season.
 
Luckily, we have experienced help. These workers do not complain, are diligent and really dig their jobs!
 
This reminds me of the real estate industry. Clients rarely get a glimpse of what occurs between professionals during a transaction. Cooperation is ever so pertinent when things go sideways, taking a team to continue forward for their sake. Glad to be surrounded by those willing to plow ahead toward success!

Bulldog On A Pant Leg Real Estate
 
 
Many professional's believe that a referral is the greatest gift that a client can give. For me, it is also being called a Bulldog On A Pant Leg! Several repairs on a recent transaction were agreed upon. After my clients contacted other window companies who were two weeks out, I called my go-to crew, Sun City Glass. The sliding screen door was quickly assembled and installed in less than 2 days.
 
When getting a listing, a buyer client or referral, I get down to business immediately, rather than putting time between the call and the work ahead. There's no time … (6 comments)

Will you MARCH this month?
 
Left, left, left, right, left. Here we go into the last month in the first quarter of 2019. Did you know that March was named after Mars? I didn’t either until I looked it up. Mars is the icon for fiercely proud, patriotic and heroic qualities - that suits me.
 
Avoid skipping solid planning with a ‘come what may’ attitude, instead, keep in time and step up with intended marketing and advertising goals. My first quarterly mailing was a created the opportunity to be face-to-face with valued clients and will be meeting with a couple to look at houses next week.

Plan it true. Do the work. Your best gets.
 
 
The idea of success differs from person to person and may include a number of things that are most important. My focus is to avoid allowing others to determine desired outcomes with clients goals in mind.
 
Success is:
Paying close attention. Differentiating between what works and knowing when to let go of something that doesn't. Being surrounded by motivated people willing to share, to give that push when required. 
Maintaining clear purpose. By that, it means focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses, solutions rather than problems. That is necessary for forward progress while building a better business.  
Aiming to achieve. Retaining short term and long term goals and implementing them both … (7 comments)

Place importance upon persevering when all may be lost.
 
Had Henry Ford given up when he failed as a machinist's apprentice, then as an engineer who couldn't produce and then spending all of the first investor group's money without producing a car, he would not be a household name.
 
By thinking outside the box and constantly striving for improvement, he became a success story. Though, he had more impediments to overcome than we do in this modern world, we can surely get in the way of accomplishing our own goals.
 
Years ago, I remember when Todd Clark came into town with his family to pick … (16 comments)

A Well Placed Referral is Akin to a Successful Epidural.
 
An epidural creates an optimum state in order to achieve the intended goal. A seasoned real estate professional leads the way, successfully guiding buyer clients toward home ownership.
 
Both should be painless.
 
Recently, out-of-area clients put an offer on a home here in southern Utah. After a conversation a few days later with my husband's cousin, I realized she was looking for a home just 5 minutes away from my clients home in Washington!
 
I quickly phoned their agent and began a discussion on the cousin's wants and needs. She immediately put me at ease. We talked about her … (18 comments)

Sold so fast she freaked!
 
In this market, when a home is priced well, located in a desirable area and in great condition, it sells fast. Some sellers think if several offers come in within the first few days of listing a property, it is priced too low. 
 
I completely disagree.
 
Real estate is local and market specific and when a property sells fast, it means people are looking for that type home to fill their wish list. I have those very clients and encourage them to respond quickly.
 
If their 'Dream Home' sells before they are willing to act, they will be very disappointed. When a home that fits their search criteria … (9 comments)

Who's gonna fill your shoes?
 
~ Little Kenslee Mae - our 7-month old Gbaby's feet ~
 
As time continues to march on despite any efforts to slow it down, this thought comes to mind. Will there be someone to take over business, to ensure that it runs smoothly in the future?
 
Could it be a son? Daughter? Nephew? Grandchild? Fellow agent?
 
Many agents come from a long line of industry professionals, where others, like me, are first generation real estater's. My oldest son has shown some interest in joining the ranks of sales people.
 
Will that person show a sincere commitment with a desire to serve clients to the fullest, through self-motivation? … (16 comments)

The Hound and his Bone
 
A hound dog found a juicy bone, holding it tightly in his mouth so it did not get lost. He intensely growled, snarling at anyone who came near enough to pose a threat. Soon he ran into thick forest to bury his prize. 
 
Carrying the bone over a small bridge, looking down into the water, seeing its own reflection, he discovered another dog with a bigger bone. Without any further thoughts, he knew he wanted that one too!
 
He growled and made a big fuss, so did the other dog. He continued this for some time, snapping and snipping aggressively. As he opened his mouth wide to bite, the bone fell into … (41 comments)

excellent business relationships: Three good reasons to Let it Go! - 01/21/18 05:46 PM
Three good reasons to Let it Go!
 
After receiving an offer on a listing, I realized the agent was not from my selling area. She explained her clients were family members and just couldn't refer them out, though she lives more than 4 hours away.
 
Why to Let it Go! local:
 
1. A agent who lives, works and plays in their selling area can offer specific insights and information to out of area buyers planning to purchase locally. It is impossible for an out-of-town agent to possess the same knowledge.
 
2. There are adverse consequences of offering too much on a property or by low-balling a well priced home in a brisk market. Local agents … (8 comments)

Hi-Home! Hi-Home! It's off to work I go!
 
In today's fast paced real estate market, hiring an agent who puts your wants and needs first is pertinent to success. One who quickly follows up and follows through consistently without over-promising and under-delivering.
 
Seven good reasons to hire me as your real estate agent:

YOU talkin’ to ME?!
 
"I was unsure because you're glancing erratically at the screen of your phone, as if you’re expecting important information to come in."
 
When meeting with clients face-to-face, give them all of your attention.

We are connected to our phones, constantly monitoring for new business information, a text, an e-mail or voice message. It can wait. Give clients in the here and now your undivided attention without unnecessary distractions, it is the least you can do for their sake.

Overcoming Objections - Week 5: We need to think about it but if you have buyers, bring them by.
 
 In an effort to get good feedback from experienced agents in our office and to help educate newbies on the selling process, an active participation training program has been established.
 
An over-sized pad and marker is set up, where agents can write down a solution they have used when meeting with home owners/buyers. This has been a fantastic exercise so far!
 
While many things drive fear, handling objections should be the least worry. For every reason a home owner/buyer may be resistant to hiring your services, there are two good reasons to … (2 comments)

Two peanuts were walking down the street...
 
 
Communicating clearly and effectively with clients, avoids double meanings, leaving little room for misunderstandings. Anything less can mean the breakdown of trusted relationships or troubles ahead.
 
Focus on helping clients make informed decisions and realize their real estate goals through proven negotiation methods and verifiable information. Say what you mean and mean what you say. 
 
Happy sales all!

Family First. It's all related!
 
 
From a young age, I learned of loyalty in relationships, which is why family always come first in life, whether challenging through adversity, a testing of faith or celebrating happy occasions.
 
Though miles may separate some of us, they always and will remain close to my heart. Social media has become an important part of keeping in touch and sharing special moments with them.
 
Some people say there is no loyalty in business relationships any more. I adamantly disagree. If that was true, I'd be out of business. Just recently, another referral came in from our long-time mechanic.
 
So, in honor of family, sincere business … (3 comments)

Home and land prices prices are going up, while available inventory is on the decline. Many people are seeing the value of purchasing while interest rates are still low. For those who may not find what they are searching for, new construction is the way to go!

Ask-hole free zone.
 
By definition, ask-holes are adults who constantly ask for advice and then always do the opposite. They are time-suckers and toxic. Their lives are poorly managed and rather than rightfully earning business, they play out pity stories to friends, family members and potential clients.
 
My advice: Avoid ask-holes at all costs and if you see them coming, cross the street! You can also:
