I was hoping that HGTV had disspelled the myth that the smell of freshly baked cookies or the right scented candle was the key to a successful showing or open house.  Unfortunately, there are still some people stuck in that mode.  There are really only TWO things within a sellers control for a  p...

A couple weeks back, the Capital Times published an article called "Bust Times for the 'Burbs" about how gas prices were causing people to buy closer to metropolitan areas to avoid commute times.My first inclination was to completely agree that this may be true, especially when I look at the grea...

To some degree I'm a customer service rep.  I provide a service, and I represent my client's best interests.  If I were to take one of those strength and weakness inventories, I would say this is my strength.  In no way, do I ever have delusions that any of my business relationships or transactio...

Sellers, I hate to tell you but there are few things that no buyer is desiring at this point.  I'm not trying to offend you, but it's the truth, and if you change them, you are likely to get your home sold sooner and closer to your list price.  I know it's not what you want to hear, but as a Real...

My favorite stories in my personal career in real estate involve getting my buyers the house they had been searching for for about a year.  My first stories involve buyers from out of state.  They had sold their home there and were in a race against time to find a home to move into.  They had loo...

At swimming lessons, at the coffee house, at school drop offs and pick ups, at church, at parks...Sometimes I'm sure people bring it up because it's what I do, but many times I'm just overhearing bits an...

I showed a handful of houses the other day.  Today I received two calls from two owners/sellers of those homes.  The startling fact:  Neither home is my listing.  The sellers were calling me to ask for showing feedback as well as tips to sell their home.  I was a bit taken aback--I asked if they ...
