Just the facts, upfront. Hearsay is hereby banned on my planet due to the potential business risks involved. Of course, this would be quite an undertaking but nothing that is worthwhile comes with little effort.  We all have responsibilities ...

My experience as a real estate investor is paying off as a real estate broker. One of the circumstances many agents find themselves in is the multiple offer scenario. I had one this week. The great young couple I'm working with fell in love with a house and so did a bunch of other people.  That s...

MY BUYERS HATE ME Well...I can't make everyone happy! I would like to think I am a friendly person, a good salesman, a pretty decent Realtor...that being said, if this whole Real Estate Agent thing doesn't work out(15 years mind you)...I would probably throw my hand in at being a stand-up comic....

Yesterday afternoon, we got a referral from one of our on-line sources for a buyer who wanted to look at a specific $600,000 home today.

Every homeowner who wants to move has four different ways to go about it, and choosing to rent out your home is one that seems to be the default decision for those that fail in their attempts to first get the home sold. For many it can be a wise decision, allowing them to turn a problem into a lo...

Geeze, take a breath!  Stop reading your script to me, and listen to me! For 90% of my working life, I’ve been selling my services or the services of my company.  I've been on the other end of the phone! The call started out nicely, but after 20 seconds I knew that I wasn't buying what she was se...

 Follow the three “A’s and you will have more business than you handle!   As a real estate agent I prefer a balanced market but unfortunately I have no control over that scenario. What I do have control over is systems and best practices that adapt to any market. Even though inventory is dangerou...

A Listing Agent Can't Give You a Better Deal, They Don't Work for YOU! Stop calling other agents! Why do yo want to go through all your wants and needs again with a new agent just because you want to see one of their listings?  They cannot give you a better deal because they work for the home own...

What differentiates a GREAT Realtor from a good one? I have been giving this some thought lately. My office is a new Keller Williams office and many of the agents who have joined are new to the business.

 Sometimes a buyer seems a little hesitant to talk about there mortgage pre-approval situation when I first start working with them.
