Nearly daily, I seem to be having a conversation with people about the horrors of their home buying experience.  I think back on ours too (which happened long before my career started in real estate) and can only think of one word:  YIKES! I can't believe the risks we took and the "professionals"...

Communication is Key... I have LONG recognized the value in good communication.  And I have long observed how "bad" communication is often the sole root of poor outcomes (great material for future posts!).  I recently finished the book, The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins which gave me an "aha momen...

I can't believe that next week is Thanksgiving, let alone next month is Christmas!   The older I get, the more I realize that the real gifts in life aren't wrapped and under the tree.  And this year, I wanted to do something that, quite selfishly, I knew would make ME feel good.   SO... this year...

My husband recently asked me if I truly feel like I help people in my professional life.  I didn't have to even think about the answer.  MOST DEFINITELY!  As a Realtor®, each & every task I complete helps goals become reality.  Renters become homeowners;  small homeowners become big homeowners (&...

As I scrolled through my blog page this morning, I had a big "aha moment"...  I'm really good at telling you about my new listings but pretty inconsistent about keeping you posted about what happens to them.  What do I mean?  Well in Real Estate, there are a LOT of options which include:  connect...

During February, we've been asked to identify what we love about our jobs. First and foremost, I love that it’s not a job.  It's a fulfilling career.Let's be honest here... Real Estate wasn't my first choice. For those of you who know me even a little bit, you know that my professional world bega...

So, you think you've found "the one"...  The house that you want to become home.  The place where you'll enjoy the happy and the sad.... celebrate the highs and mourn the lows.... highlight the charms and curse the not so charming.  So, how are you going to make it reality??  Here are a few sugge...

Having a house on the market isn’t easy…  It’s not just having a sign in the lawn.  When done the right way, it’s keeping the place neat & tidy from basement to attic; it’s getting showing requests throughout the day for appointments that could occur at any time; it’s about leaving your house at ...

As real estate agents, we spend LOTS of time in our cars... As a real estate agent who is also a "softball mom", I spend an "extra lot" of time in my car.   With 2 daughters playing in the same season, in two completely different age groups, & one spouse who also doubles as a coach, my family is ...

Every once in a while something good shows up in my mailbox.... Once a month I can count on the delivery of New York State Realtor, the Official Publication of the NYS Association of Realtors.    This month I was intrigued to see the profile of "the typical New York State Realtor": * 55 year old ...

While I feel like 2016 has been around for quite awhile now, yesterday was our company's 2016 Kickoff Meeting... An annual event where we put our phones away, catch up with fellow agents whom we don't see nearly enough, celebrate all that was in the year prior, and celebrate with anticipation all...

Having a home on the market is not easy. Having a home on the market during the holidays can be an even greater challenge. Quite often, sellers struggle with the age ol' question, to decorate or not to decorate while on the market during the holidays.  In my You Tube debut, I answer that question...

It's back to reality today...  After two weeks off, the buses are running again & the kids are back in school.  While I worked during the holiday season, today is the day to get back into the "real" swing of things. It's time to find that groove again that can make our goals reality in this New Y...

It's been VERY cold the past few days here in Upstate NY but that doesn't keep the wheels of real estate progress from moving.  I showed a couple of homes to an investor yesterday. One was empty and as is common in vacant homes, some belongings were left behind.  I wish I took a picture but my ph...

We had 4 homes to see in one short evening with my first time home buyer. I had heard it earlier in our outing but at the last home, I heard it again... "Wow. These guys are serious!".  I was intrigued.  As a Realtor, I alawys tell my sellers "to effectively sell your home, you have to think like...
