When I first moved to Newport, my California Real Estate License was unable to reciprocate and be used in Oregon, which meant I was at the mercy of the local agents to show me homes. I arrived at a very busy time before the drop in prices, which meant that I was having a hard time getting an agent to show me the inside of homes I was interested in.

I realized I would need to study for my exam and get my Oregon license to be able to see homes. In the meantime, I had to find a home. It was tough to do as nobody would return my calls. I came up with the slogan, "A house needs to be seen to be sold" after being stood up for a showing appointment.

I feel strongly that offers will not be written until my buyer has seen everything they want to see. The same goes for sellers, the home will sit unsold if there are no showings.

"A house needs to be seen, to be SOLD!"

                                               I pine for Barbara LePine....

I can see you expressing your tag eye to eye with a seller who wont open the door or an agent who wont meet-up...

                                     "A house needs to be seen, to be SOLD!

                Its like a bugle call.....too!

BTW...if you say your tag 3 times fast...It sounds like a bunch of people all whispering to each other in a large room...Trivia...However do try it...lol
