list: My Favorite Time Of The Year - 11/12/10 03:53 AM
 
                                                                  
 
Oftentimes throughout the year I declare, "This is my favorite time of year!"  But seriously, this has to be about my favorite... Not because of the weather or any sporting or holiday event...it's because we send out Thanksgiving cards to our clients and as I glance over at my client's names, I so vividly remember my time with them.  In every case, my memories are so fond, or profoundly funny, or inane.  I just can't help but laugh (like the husband and wife who got in a heated discussion with her husband over the difference between a fox and a coyote.  In … (2 comments)

list: Top 10 Reasons to Accept the First Offer that You Get..... - 11/04/10 07:13 AM
 
                                                              
(Even when you just know that another offer is sure to be right around the corner because you just came on the market/reduced your home and there's been so much activity...)
10. Because there is never as much activity in the first 2 weeks of listing a home, just based upon momentum.
9.  Because 9 times out of 10 your first offer is your highest
8.  Because reducing your home if it doesn't sell the first few days on the market is the best way to let a buyer know that you will negotiate off your price.

list: A Deal Is Always A Great Thing, Right???? - 11/02/10 02:25 AM
 

Costco is my happy place. Truly, shopping there is one of my favorite things to do.  The wide aisles, all the fresh delicious food, and then the abundance of things you didn't know you couldn't live without.. like that inflatable canoe? How have I make it this far without one?
Can the Costco model apply to other industries.. offering quality products in bulk at a discounted price?  Take Real Estate, for instance.  This one agent I know thinks that listing as many homes as he can at a cut commission is the way to go.  However, unlike Costco he does … (6 comments)

list: Keep in touch - 09/03/10 06:52 AM
Keep in touch!   It's something we say all the time...but do we?  
I had the most interesting conversation with a client who I ran into at the grocery store.    She said to me that she appreciated me calling, mailing and emailing all the time.  She said she likes the updates and she felt special.  She also said that because of my many reminders, she always mentions my name to people who she knows who are looking for homes.  The best part is, she has sent me referrals.
I took a moment to think.  What was I doing that was working for her?  I specifically … (2 comments)

Want to sell in this competitive market place? Then you need to be the best product on the market. Not only do you need to be priced right but you also need to look right too. What does that mean? Your home needs to looks its best from the inside out. Take a look at this video for a few helpful hints. To Recap: You've heard it a thousand times, 'First impressions are the most important'.

list: YADDA YADDA YADDA... - 08/10/10 08:41 AM
YADDA YADDA YADDA...Remember that Seinfeld episode when Elaine is recapping a date and she says something like, "We had the bisque and then yadda yadda yadda."  Jerry says, "Hey you left out the best part of the story", to which Elaine replies, "No.  I mentioned the bisque." 
Think about your home....what would someone who comes to see it at an open house say was the best part?  
Here's some comments I've heard:
"The colors here are just beautiful" "Obviously, this is the boys room"...decorated with pictures of half naked girls "Are these owners smokers?" "What is that smell?"...oh, just a … (0 comments)

list: Big Changes - 08/09/10 08:23 AM
Change..It can be a good thing but it can also be a little scary.  There are few changes bigger in life then moving our family to a new home.  This could involve changing schools, communities, and even states.
Here are a few tips that can ease the stress when moving out of the area:

 
Involve the kids-  Let them see some homes, talk about their rooms with them, and highlight the amenities the new home/area has like pools, playgrounds, etc...
Explain the process- Let them know why this move is a good thing.  Maybe it means more time together … (1 comments)

You want to buy a home and it seems like everyone you know has advice to give you but you still don’t know who to listen too.

list: Don't just assume - 08/04/10 09:11 AM
You ask your friend who cuts their hair but not who sold their home?  
I am always surprised that buyers sellers would just call an office and work with whomever is on floor(meaning whoever answers the phone).  Agents on floor time can be really great, but is the only criteria for picking an agent the one who happened to answer the phone when you called?   
With hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line, specific criteria for the job to be done is important.   
Does the agent have an aggressive marketing plan? How many homes has the agent sold? … (0 comments)
