frances rokicki sells ct homes: Today, We Had a Spring Moment! - 03/05/13 04:59 PM
Our weather, earlier in the day, was very cold.  When walking my lab, we moved along, very quickly.  Then, in the afternoon, the sun came out and warmed up our day!  You could just sit outside on the porch.  I showed a few homes and was amazed at how nice the weather was.  Many of you may know that some of the empty homes are colder inside than the weather is now, outside. Typically, those are homes that are foreclosure listings.  They have their heating system and plumbing system, winterized. Luckily, today I showed occupied, heated homes.
The snow is melting and you can even see the grass coming … (6 comments)

frances rokicki sells ct homes: Happy New Year, 2013! - 01/01/13 03:13 PM
Here we are, in a brand new year.  Just finishing Day One. 
 
Motivation level = High
Emotional level = High
Work level        = High
Activity level     = High
Exercise level    = High
 
We all seem to start high.  The work we must do, on a daily basis, is to keep that High level for most of our days.  I can't imagine having it 24-7.  However, making every attempt to strive for the highest potential that you can have is the goal.
Writing your goals down and reading them, every day, will help you to attain the level that you will … (6 comments)

frances rokicki sells ct homes: Lesson Learned! - 09/24/12 04:00 PM
Without disclosing the address or the parties involved, I have to share this situation with you.  You just won't believe it!
Wrote an offer on a home, that was a short sale.  We wrote the offer in March of this year.  Patiently, my clients waited and waited.  My client read, somewhere online, that there was going to be a huge tag sale at the address of the property he was under contract to purchase.  They listed, cabinets, vanities, light fixtures, etc.  Yes, the kitchen sink.  I was contacted by my client.  In turn, I called the attorney representing the buyer and … (7 comments)

frances rokicki sells ct homes: Buyer Agent, I Am, I Am! - 07/20/12 04:27 PM
The majority of my buyers, come to me as referrals.  Referrals from my family, past clients, friends, relatives, neighbors and from many of my vendors.  It's amazing how much more the buyer trusts you, from day one, when they are a referral client.
1) We meet and have a buyer preparation meeting.  In the state of Connecticut, we have buyer agency law.  You cannot take out a buyer to look at properties, unless you have signed them up with our state contract.  It is a good law.  After all, buyers do need guidance and proper attention. We read over the purchase … (10 comments)

frances rokicki sells ct homes: It's That Time of Year! - 06/05/12 08:46 AM
Most of us think of the title of this post, It's That Time of Year, during the winter holidays!  As Realtors, we think of that phrase each and every spring.  Spring Market, is, after all, our best marketing time to sell homes.  In the New England region, we feel that season change coming upon us.  If we have a mild winter, like last year's, it starts much sooner.  Our market is buzzing with new buyers and the listings are sharp, priced to go and ready for new owners.
Whether you are a first time buyer, move up buyer or someone who is … (1 comments)
