You Can Sell Real Estate in Your Town From Anywhere

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

My good friend Hella Rothwell is a perfect example of a busy Realtor who sells real estate from all over. Doesn't matter if she's up in northern California, she can sell a home in Hawaii. If she's in Hawaii, she can sell a home in Carmel by the Sea. If she's in Carmel by the Sea, she can sell a home in Northern California. The thing is it doesn't matter where you are.

She's one of the few agents I know who gets it. I have another agent friend who lives along the river near the coast of California and drives into town every few weeks when she needs a presence here. But she makes her living in Sacramento real estate without being here. They are my inspiration. You can do it, too. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Working Sacramento Real Estate in the Cloud Means Hello Hawaii.

Good morning Elizabeth.  Having read some of your past posts I know when you're in another state or country you never slow down.

James Dray I consider myself extremely fortunate to have made the switch to seller representation many years ago. If I was working with buyers instead of my team members, well, I couldn't travel. Traveling mixes well with listings because most of my time is spent negotiating via phone and email. Which you can do from anywhere.

Good morning, Elizabeth -- location - location - location is such a familiar chant that even a kindergartner might be able to associate it with our industry. However with technology, strong organizational skills and the right resources, we can be "here" even when we are "anywhere".

Good morning Elizabeth. It is a great idea but more difficult in practice than it seems.

Michael Jacobs I uploaded photos for a new listing today when I got off the plane at Kona Kailua, and I called a client to advise her on the next steps for getting her home ready for the market. Don't have to be at an office in Sacramento to do that.

Sheila Anderson I hope you don't take this post to mean that every real estate agent can do it, because they obviously cannot. For example, when I went to Cuba last Christmas, it was difficult to keep ahead of everything, but that was an exremely rare situation. Most places have internet. Yet in Hawaii, it's a piece of cake for me. And  also realize not everybody wants to sell a 100 homes a year like I do and still travel. But for those who do, the option is there.

Real estate is one of those things, thanks to the internet and cloud storage, that you can do anywhere.
