remax results: Start, Stop, and Continue - The continual feedback loop of ALL SALES - 10/10/17 03:19 PM
I have been in sales for over 30 years. I first started "selling" by serving at a restaurant, then after over a decade of that, I started selling real estate, and I have been doing it ever since.  One of the methods of evaluation that I love is the start, stop, and continue theory. Here is what Google says it is....
Stop Start Continue Change Management Model. Using the four basic titles (STOP START CONTINUE (CHANGE) look at a service or offer and consider each of the actions, top stop elements (or the whole service), start doing something new, continue what is happening (it is working well) or change an element.

remax results: Eden Prairie Realtor "He helped us navigate the challenges of selling" - 09/22/17 01:13 PM
When you are thinking of buying or selling a home, townhomes, or condominium the same thing keeps running through most people's minds. 
How do I find an agent that I can trust, that is will produce results, and that will not make me feel like I am a "bother" or that I "my questions/concerns" are stupid, or even an agent that simply refuses or finds excuses and does not return my texts and calls within a reasonable period of time.
I hear some of these complaints from consumers about other agents too, and for whatever it is worth, I am sorry...

remax results: How Much Equity do you REALLY have in your home? - 06/20/17 01:31 PM
CoreLogic’s latest Equity Report revealed that 91,000 properties regained equity in the first quarter of 2017. This is great news for the country, as 48.2 million of all mortgaged properties are now in a positive equity situation.

remax results: Today's First Time Homebuyers according to Zillow - 09/25/15 08:30 AM
While the role of first-time home buyers hasn’t changed much over time—vacating rental housing for starter homes—the characteristics of these new buyers has definitely evolved. Today’s first-time home buyers are older, less likely to be married and purchasing more expensive homes than previously.
What does this mean for real estate agents when these new buyers are ready to purchase a home? Understanding what drives their decisions can help you adjust your sales approach so that you resonate with these buyers, land more of them as clients and close more sales.
First Time Homebuyer's are several years older, more likely to be single, and sadly … (1 comments)

remax results: Less homeowners are currently drowning in their mortgages! - 09/12/15 12:15 AM
Well, it is a sad statement....but very much true. The bad is getting better, but it is still not that good, at least from the "historical perspective". There has been a steady decrease in the percentage of homeowners that are underwater for the last 13 quarters in a row. Q2-2015 is no exception, 14.4% of homeowners nationwide owe more than their home is worth.  The average for condo owners is not as good with 1 in 5 (20%) are still upside down.   Here is four years of negative equity "healing" from Zillow 
With all good news, comes some bad.... almost one … (1 comments)

remax results: Renovation Raider House highlighted in Minneapolis Star Tribune - 12/28/14 12:02 AM
Does this house look familiar? If you’re a regular reader of this section or watch home-improvement TV shows, chances are you’ve seen it before. It was designed, built, and "raided" by famous designer Amy Matthews. The renovation has a reported cost of over $80,000!
You might recognize the dining room, with its distinctive metal hexagon chandelier. Or maybe the kitchen, with its vivid blue center island.
Peter and Lauren Soderberg’s split-level house in Shakopee had its 15 minutes of fame in June 2013 when it was featured on HGTV’s “Renovation Raiders” and in the Star Tribune’s Sunday Homes section.
