homes for sale: Zooming (Safely) Through a Tour of Homes in San Diego, CA - 04/25/20 06:25 PM
Back To Work! Zooming (Safely) Through a Tour of Homes in San Diego, CA
I performed my first Zoom tour today with 3 buyers watching me
tour them through 4 houses.
It took 90 minutes longer than it would have if we were all
attending in person, but it felt great to keep my clients, myself
and ultimately our families safe.
All 4 properties were vacant. The tour took 2.5 hours.
 
I called 3 listing agents Friday and called one on the fly today as we added a fourth property mid tour. We discussed my typical due diligence questions and COVID-protocols. 
 
One asked me for our new COVID-19 CAR Form … (12 comments)

Pause, Plan, Pivot, Proceed!
I’m sharing a philosophy I practice, born of deeply personal events in my life. I’m not preaching at you, nor do I seek converts; I'm simply sharing and I know you can think for yourself...chew the meat and spit out the bones.
I will not buy into the media sensationalized hype, I will not abide negative chicken little people and I will not cower in fear even, though I am aware of the seriousness of this virus and the state of the world. I believe the responsible thing to do is stay home, stay healthy and not hoard supplies. I understand … (26 comments)

homes for sale: Uncertain Times? Certainly Not! - 03/23/20 09:25 AM
Uncertain Times?  Certainly Not!
 Remaining positive and productive while staying informed.
 
 
I certainly am going to work out daily, as usual. Staying healthy is critical. I just won't do it at the gym. (5 mile hikes with my dog have been my exercise of choice 5x week).
I certainly will shower and dress for work each day. I just have a really short commute to my home office across the hall.
I certainly will limit my exposure to sensationalized, fear mongering news. I will stay informed through a balanced and trusted "mutual fund" of resources.
I certainly will work in my business per "usual". I just won't … (45 comments)

homes for sale: What If Your Coach Ticket Got You Seated in First Class? - 05/21/18 08:21 PM

I can build a relational career on good people; I can't sustain a positive attitude nor a fulfilled purpose when it's just about numbers or closing transactions. For me it's not about how much you can afford to spend as a buyer and it's not about how much the market says your home is worth as a seller; it's about the relationship I'm able build with you through that transaction that leads to the client's advocacy and their future referrals. You pay the bills closing transactions, you build a career serving the needs of your clients through mastery and excellence at a level that exceeds … (13 comments)

Value Proposition Part 4 of 4

Marketing Plan & Price Position
My #1 job as a Listing Agent is to create maximum exposure through my Custom Listing Marketing Plan and positioning my clients' properties to yield a higher sales price than it would have with any other agent or For Sale By Owner. Exposure creates interest, interest sparks demand, demand attracts multiple offers, multiple offers provide choices and opportunity!
 
A Yard Sign & MLS entry is not where this ends! Price positioning is key because the first two weeks are crucial market time; this is when the most experienced and ready-to-buy-buyers come through the property. … (3 comments)

homes for sale: FAQ #7: What Is The MLS (Multiple Listing Service) in San Diego, CA - 06/26/17 10:21 PM
Some of the best advice my trainers and coaches ever gave me is:
Never use in inside language on the outside world.
My friend Joe found that out when he assumed everybody knew what the MLS was and never mentioned it during a listing presentation, he assumed they knew.
He lost the listing!
He lost it because the other agent the couple interviewed told them about how he'd broadcast their home to every agent in the area and cooperating areas too. Joe was in shock, "all that is...is the MLS?!?" Joe presumed they knew he'd "of course" be posting their home their, so he … (1 comments)

Smart Tips For The San Diego, CA  ANY Home Sellers
 
 
Many sellers have the impression that in order to sell a home, you just have to list it, especially since it's been a seller's market in most areas of CA since Q4 of 2011. While listing on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is certainly part of the process, there’s quite a bit of preparation to undertake before your home’s listing goes “live” on the MLS.
 
Here are the steps to take when you’re thinking of selling your home. Selling is an emotional process, whether you’ve lived in the home for two years or 20 years. In … (8 comments)

homes for sale: FAQ #5: What Can I do To Make Sure My home Sells for "Top Dollar"? - 06/12/17 04:36 PM
I want top dollar for my home, how do I get it?
 Top Dollar is what the market is willing to pay; that varies from market to market and ultimately is up to the market, not the seller nor the agent. But, you do take steps necessary to ensure best results, leave nothing to chance.
 
So, what sells a home 99% of the time, more than ANYTHING else? You're going to hate my answer, because everything I share beyond this first tip, constitutes the remaining 1%. Which is to say, not much else matters:
 
 
The answer is simple: Be Properly Priced. That's it! It's price! All … (7 comments)

Are Any of Us? Do you Mr. Realtor in your piece of the USA? Do you Mrs. Real estate agent in your home town, America?  What do you really sell?  What do you really promote?
 
This post was inspired by:
Lee Davenport's post: ARE WE STILL DREAMING ABOUT HOMEOWNERSHIP? 
 
"We as real estate practitioners likely do not openly focus enough on the importance of homeownership. We exclaim verbally and post socially why we love our favorite restaurants, sports team, luxury brands and other objects of our affection. Yet, often we are mum on WHY  homeownership matters, such as its wealth creation and generational transferable power. "
