I can't remember the last time I blogged and I am so rusty right now I am just writing to get something down on paper. I have recently turned a corner on my real estate career, which is the second career of my life. I have decided only to work with friends, past clients, or personal referrals. I may open that up to people that contact me from one of my websites or blogs as well. But strangers will only be after we have corresponded and learned a bit about each other first.
Since real estate is my second career and I do it because I enjoy it rather than because I have to. I have decided to do it for people that I already have a rapport with. It allows me to focus on them (but I always did), and for them to have the best possible service and home buying experience. It is not as if my business model was ever much different than that. I may have teamed up but never took on the "factory" approach where I handed clients off to different agents for different aspects of the buying or selling process. Yes, certain tasks were better farmed to professionals in other fileds, such as advertising, photography, home staging, etc., but the important real estate parts, will be and always has been done by me. That's what anyone should expect from an agent.
Anyway, since I haven't been on here blogging in a while I thought the best way to get back to it is by updating whomever is still reading me here as to where I am and what I'll be doing going forward. Thanks for your patience with me and I hope this kick starts me back into writing about the things you care about. Like the area market, neighborhoods, developments, restaurants and activities. Please leave a comment if there is something you want me to research for you.
See you soon.
