Buyers are plentiful this summer for this real estate broker

Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

If anyone thinks I'm being slothful since I seem to have slowed WAY down on blogging the past couple of months, think again.

During the past couple of years, I have concentrated on setting up the framework for my brokerage both in California and Hawaii.


1. I officially moved my California brokerage office to Carmel-by-the-Sea. Since this is a relative "tight" community where referrals are a big part of my business, I spent the last few months on one-on-one networking. This fall, I plan on a marketing campaign that reaches out to a wider audience. Can't wait.

2. I got my broker's license in Hawaii and set up a marketing structure there that I can handle while I am in California. At some point soon, I will be hiring a broker in charge, but in the meantime, I have set up relationships with other independent brokers to work with on all the 4 major islands.


Frankly, during this time of building my two areas, I was pretty picky as to what clients I worked with personally, referring many of them out. And this has been a good thing, because I really can't handle certain types of clients. Or would-be clients. You know the ones, those who plan to buy at some point and are trying to decide on an area. I'm sorry, but unless you come here and look around yourself, there is little I can say to help. Yes, I have websites with information and photos, but that isn't enough for you to make that big decision. And to show you homes before you have taken that first crucial step, deciding which COUNTY in which STATE you want to purchase property, I can't help you.


1. You, the buyer, has made up your mind where you want to purchase a home. You have been in the area before and know this is for you.

2. You, the buyer, is looking at the right price range. No wishful thinking here because you will only be disappointed if you can afford a lot less.

3. You, the buyer, is being forthright with me about using my services. I may ask you to sign a Buyers Representation agreement.

4. You, the buyer, has a pre-approval by a lender or the cash funds to purchase.

5. REFERRALS. I take referrals from other real estate professionals if they meet #1-4 above. The more committed the buyers are, the more the referral fee to their agent.


The last two months have been really busy for me dealing with new clients with all kinds of transactions, everything from the straight forward showing of homes to a 10 day short sale to beat a foreclosure date (yep, it can be done if you have cash).

Noah: It took a lot of education and work to get to this point. I love it when a plan comes together!

Barbara: Interesting how I am getting so many buyers at this time, when in the past, I concentrated more on listings.

Nothing wrong with those guidelines Hella, and nothing wrong with time away from blogging so long as the business is coming in!  Hard to help a buyer if they don't know what state they want to live in.

John: Mostly, though, potential buyers, I'm glad to say, have been to Carmel-by-the-Sea and the beautiful surrounding areas in Monterey County such as Big Sur and now are considering settling here or buying a second home. These are dream clients!

Debbie: Now that the structure is done, I'm ready for those clients who are ready to buy!

Endre: When you are busy, it's good to "time manage" and that needs to include blogging. So here I am getting up an hour earlier to start!
