How to Handle Distractions: State Wide Realty Weighs In
It never fails you get up, get dressed and have your to-do list ready to be completed for the day just for that unannounced distraction to insert itself into the mix. While some distractions are unavoidable it is important to realize those things that can wait versus those that can't or shouldn't.
Avoidable Distractions are those that we present to ourselves as a tangent to something we are currently doing or think we "should" be doing. Stick to task and when this part is done then you can go off on that tangent.

You Have the Exclusive Right to Sell:
State Wide Realty Explains
This type of agreement between you and the real estate agent and brokerage means that they are the only ones authorized to list your property for sale and that it is not available For Sale By Owner. This type of contract puts the pressure on the agent and the agency they work for to do everything they can to sell your property for you.

Internet Vs. Realtor: Which One Does A Client Trust More?
With the wealth of information that buyers can get on the internet today it is no wonder that when we meet with clients today they “know” more than ever. As a realtor we have to prove that we know more than the computer and that we aren’t lying just to sell our own listings. We as professionals have the responsibility of educating our clients on how the listing systems work. The client is not aware of third party databases, manual input sites, and other variables that will affect the accuracy … (2 comments)

While most of us were asleep at 5:30 am on December 12, 2015, one of our agents, Bobby Jacobs was already dressed in his camouflage and blaze orange helping to serve breakfast to 17 physically challenged adults that had signed up for the annual Wheelin’ Sportsman Handicap Hunt. As a member of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation this is one of many events that Bobby volunteers for. The NWTF raises money from local businesses and personal donations to be able to offer a day of hunting for those that need … (2 comments)

agents: Orange is the “Must Have” this Season!: Realtor Safety Tip - 12/16/15 11:53 PM
Orange is the “Must Have” this Season!
This is not fashion advice but a safety tip for showing properties during hunting season. When going to vacant land there can be an UNSAFE assumption by buyers and sometimes agents that they can view the property anytime and not let anyone know that they are there especially if they have seen it before. There is a very GOOD reason to ALWAYS call ahead because there may be hunters who have leased the property and are not expecting you to come while they are trying to get that big buck. Even if you have let … (15 comments)

It's A Bird, It's A Plane: It's Our Agent in Green Bay, WI
Recently one of our own agents, Brock Robinson, took the 980 mile trip from our small town of Farmville, VA to Green Bay, Wisconsin. This trip meant a lot to him but more importantly to his travelling companion, his dad. Brock was able to tour Lambeau field, home of the Green Packers and watch them defeat the Dallas Cowboys at the Sunday game. When asked about his trip, Brock stated that the parts that meant the most to him were seeing his dad get emotional on the field during … (2 comments)

To Sell or Not to Sell- That is the Question
As a Broker, I am always hit with the statement "when I'm ready to sell, I'll call you". Well that leads to the question how do you decide to sell or not to sell. I have had clients that didn't have a choice they were underwater on their mortgage and had to sell and then there have had some that just wanted to see what they could get and if it sold great if not oh well no big deal. There is a lot to consider when deciding to sell your property or … (0 comments)

FAQ's-Is that For Sale Property for Rent?
   OR     
So often we get the much anticipated phone call "new lead" that only ends up in a sigh once you realize that the person on the other end wants to know if your FOR SALE listing is for rent. At this moment you probably want to scream at the top of your lungs IT SAYS FOR SALE NOT RENT can't you read?! But instead take a deep breath and do some digging. This person may think all they can afford is to rent. They may not have had you the patient, knowledgeable Realtor to … (4 comments)

Which comes First the Broker or the Banker?
                                                                                      
 
When you have made the decision to purchase real estate who should you call first? Most of us would say me, me the Broker but the truth is a buyer/investor should call their Banker FIRST. There are several reasons why knowing what you can afford and how much you will need down before you go searching to buy benefits not only the customer but the agent as well. Right of the back the customer does not fall in love with a property only to be told that they don't qualify for the loan or … (2 comments)
