Do you love what you do? I love selling real estate!!! I enjoy working with people and helping them achieve their real estate goals. While the money can be rewarding, it's so much more than that.
A few weeks ago I was reminded why I love getting up everyday and going to work. The Schuman Team at Washington Fine Properties (aka Marsha Schuman and I) had back to back buyer presentations early on a cold, Sunday morning. We met two fantastic families. Each family shared their special story with us. We learned how long they have been in the Washington … (5 comments)

 REAL ESTATE TRENDS: UNDERSTANDING TODAY'S BUYERS
If there is one trend that I have observed over and over again in 2010, it's that after settlement Buyers are tapped out, no more green, the well is empty! Remember, Buyers have to come up with a downpayment, closing costs and escrows at settlement not to mention getting used to a new mortgage. This means that Buyers are looking for properties that have little or no work to do. I am not saying Buyers won't put in new carpet or repaint a house, but as a rule of thumb, Buyers are shying away from houses … (5 comments)

BUYERS, ARE YOU WORKING DIRECTLY WITH LISTING AGENTS...IT JUST MAY COST YOU!
I meet Buyers all the time. They tour our listings, come to open houses and call us on the phone. Some are very knowledgeable about real estate, some treat it as a hobby and some are clueless. Many of these buyers plan to find their own home, work with the listing agent directly and skip the advice of a buyer's agent. I am here to tell you that this is unwise, counterintuitive and could end up costing you a lot more than you think you are saving … (4 comments)
