Many consumers are price shoppers. In fact, many people are sleeve shoppers when picking out the latest fashion to wear. They see something they like. Then they look at the price tag hanging from the sleeve. Then they decide how much  they "really" like it after they factor in the price. Whether ...

Document, document, document! Yesterday, I mentioned in my post that a customer went into the store on my day off and lied to the owner about the price I had quoted them.

If you're out there marketing for new listings but not having much luck, the problem could be that your target is too large. In an effort to market to an entire city, your message must necessarily be generic. Probably TOO generic to appeal to any of them, except by chance. Those are the ads we se...

Why not Be Unique, Authentic and MEMORABLE! Ask any real estate agent that has truly embraced their authentic self in their brand and they will tell you that while it was scary at first, it was probably one of the best business decisions they ever made. I am not talking about buying a $29 logo o...

Flashback December 10, 2009, after another buyer question about scorpions in Arizona, I decide to write a post about it. Many of my colleagues thought this was a bad idea. They asked why I would want to write about one of the "negatives" of living in the Phoenix area. The way I looked at it (and ...

Maybe they think that the homeowner is too naïve and they will never find out that the work performed is sub par.    While inspecting an upper end property in the Nashville Tennessee area, I ...
