Thousands of Arizona Real Estate Agents - Where Do You Begin?
Yesterday I was at the Long Realty Semi-Annual meeting held in Oro Valley at the Hilton El Conquistador Hotel.
Judy Lowe, Commissioner of the Arizona Department of Real Estate was one of the speakers.  She shared some very interesting statistics!
 
There are 84,000 licensees in real estate in the State of Arizona
Of them, 54,000 are ACTIVELY practicing Real Estate
14,000 agents are inactive - although they have taken the classes and keep their license at the ADRE.

Business Creators via Long Realty Training Center, Tucson, AZ
I've been taking a great class on Mondays for the past five weeks, absolutely dollar free.
However, if you've heard the phrase, and I bet you have, "Time is Money", well then you have a different scenario. "Time is Money" is a phrase we all have heard.  And sometimes we need to put in the time, to make the money.

Students had to pledge to commit to every Monday, 1-4, for that five week time period...AND, do the homework...AND do continuing education via Long Realty University online videos, and create new … (1 comments)

Sunrise at Long Realty Dove Mountain Marana
I was at the office early this morning, trying to get all of the papers coordinated for a short sale that I needed to send to two lienholders.  It's always a "project" and I wanted to use the big conference tables.
I was walking back from the fax machine when the pink glow of morning permeated the very dark office space.  (I hadn't turned on many lights...I was still in my fleece lounge pants!!) 
I had to go outside for a photo!


Hope you all have a beautiful day.

long realty: Tucson Market Statistics for July, 2012 - 08/14/12 09:56 AM
Tucson Market Statistics for July, 2012

What's going on in the Tucson Market for Real Estate right now?  This handy graph provided by Long Realty paints a clear picture of the increase in sales, decrease in inventory, and where we are at price-wise in comparison to the high-water marks of April 2006.
Combine low interest with affordable homes, and you've got two great opportunities.  Buy now, as prices are showing a modest climb in value, with pocket neighborhoods experiencing multiple bids.  Or, sell now while the inventory drives interest high...and move into your next chapter of life.

Long Realty - Dove Mountain and Continental Ranch, Marana AZ - The Light is On for You!
One of the things different about my new working relationship with Long Realty is floor time.  Before, I worked out of my home office and went to the main office for information, classes, and maybe some printing.

Floor duty is "assigned" to agents in four hour shifts here at  Dove Mountain and Continental Ranch, Marana AZ.  I quickly found that saving all that paperwork and online networking that filled many hours at home, could be accomplished while being "on call". 
You see, at … (5 comments)
