Real Estate Agent - 1st Cornerstone Realty
My blog is written to help other agents become better. By including my every day experiences, I hope that other people can learn from my adventures. I love being a real estate agent and I hope that I can help as many people as possible.



Well finally I'm starting to see some activity from generating my own leads.  Instead of buying leads from companies and wasting my time, I'm finding out ways to get leads for myself.  There's nothing like going out there and doing it for yourself while saving money.  Some of the things that have...
A while back, I registered my office as a HUD agent.  Unfortunately, HUD homes, ie foreclosures, are the worse houses I've ever seen.  Not only are they usually in such bad shape, I'm usually afraid I'll fall through the floor and get hurt.  Does anyone out there work with HUD homes?  Are you hav...
I was wondering if there were any other web sites out there that would give a more accurate valuation of a house value.  I've tried housevalues but of course the mls, but was just hoping someone could provide additional web sites just so that I have them available to me.  Let me know.  Thanks.
Well after a lot of complaints, the county has finally gotten around to sending a letter to my client to cut the yard.  They sent a certified letter and sent me a copy also.  So they're going to handle the yard maintainence and put a lein against the house if the home owner doesn't do the work hi...
I was taking a look at this web site and it looks pretty good.  The fact that you can cut out the attorney and not pay as much money is a great idea.  I already incorporated myself for free but if I wanted to do that, they also provide that service.  Have any other realtors/lo's tried out this se...
I just had a homeowner return my phone call.  I didn't leave a message so she had no idea who I was.  I talked to her about her home that she wants to sell.  By doing my homework, I knew about the layout, number of bedrooms, baths, pools, ect.  So not only did I impress her with my knowledge of h...
I've talked to other LO's and it seems that a lot of people are processing a lot of non qualified people.  For me personally, I have to go through about 50 loan apps just to find a qualified person.  Other people that are LO's have been talking about getting out of the business because the busine...
Last night I attended a seminar for investing in real estate.  I was thinking that I wouldn't learn anything but I was really surprised when I picked up some great tips when looking for an investment property.  While sitting in the seminar, I realized that I could have purchased one of the proper...
Yesterday was my birthday and today I'm surpassing the 100,000 mark on Active Rain.  This is really a good week for me.  I remember starting AR and not knowing how to do anything.  Now, I'm above the 100k mark.  I've only managed to snag 1 client from AR.  I knew real estate wasn't going to make ...
Yesterday was my birthday and I decided to take the day off and not take any phone calls, emails, complaints, ect.  As a real estate agent and loan originator, I really needed the break.  I did receive a few calls on the golf course as I was playing with my partner on the golf cart and it actuall...
