New agent on the block

By
Real Estate Agent with Effingham Realty, Inc.

I'm new at blogging so bear with me as I learn a new way of communicating.

I'm a Realtor from Effingham, IL.  I've lived here all my life and raised my family of eight children and with that comes 18 grandchildren for now.  My husband and I own and operate a 300 cow dairy where I did spent all my time until a knee injury told me I needed a new profession.

My children are grown so I decided to become a Realtor and the business has gotten in my blood and I do enjoy everything about the business.  I've been at it now for over 10 years and I've had my share of good and bad clients. 

I'm starting the blog now because 90% of my buyers have already checked out listings on the internet

I look forward to visiting with everyone and learning a lot more about real estat.

I am new to the Rain also.  This blogging thing has me intrigued so I thought I would try it out.  It sounds positive, so good luck to you!  Hope to see you around for awhile.  Kathy Burke

Thanks to all who have welcomed me to the activerain family.

The Real Estate market in East Central Illinois looks like it should be a good year for everyone.   The prices have leveled off and possibly a comeback. 

I'm in the process of putting my business plan together. Does anyone have a suggestion, when you live in a small community, how you can choose just one niche market?  To complete my total plan I need all sellers and buyers. 

What plan works best for the Realtors in a small community?

Lois, Since not everyone reads the newbie posts, why don't you do a blog and ask this same question?
