ft smith real estate: I'm FULL!!! Fort Smith Chili Cookoff was GREAT!!! - 02/02/08 08:05 PM
Now, I told you about the Fort Smith Chili Cookoff today and I said I would bring the pictures!!!  I only had time to take a few pictures because I constantly had a spoon in my hand and was eating up a southern storm.  My boys Smiley Died were there to provide some Rock N Roll!!!!  There were over 50 cooks from all over the area.  I have never seen so many bowls of Chili in my life!!!  I loved it and can't wait until the next one here in June.

ft smith real estate: My Friend Max Said That House Isn't Worth That! - 01/27/08 03:10 PM

I've been a Full-time Realtor for several years and there are few things that now shock or surprise me.  I've seen and heard almost everything.  Hearing from my clients what friends and family have to say about a property is almost a daily occurrence.  It's just part of the business.
I've found the client a property in the price range that they wanted and with the criteria that meets their needs.  I've showed them the comparable properties in the area.  I've completed their market analysis for them and given them the numbers so they can make a justifiable decision.  Then enters Max.
Conversation with Client:
Max says, "Offer them $25,000 less than listed … (3 comments)

ft smith real estate: I Really Need Your FEEDBACK!!! My Client Deserves It... - 01/26/08 05:33 PM
In the Good Old Day's you would call an agent to get feedback on a listing of yours and they would gladly give it to you.  In the Good Old Days, that feedback would be structured to help you to SELL the property.  Whatever happened to the Good Old Days?
Today, you'll get a call from several agents to show your property.  You'll answer the phone.  Set up the appointment.  Your client calls and asks you what the agents/clients thoughts were on their property, and YOU don't have the answer!!!  Not Good! 
You call again.  No answer. No reply.  Not Good!
You email.  … (8 comments)

ft smith real estate: Whatever happened to "Thank You"? A Daily Best Practice. - 01/16/08 10:35 AM
As children we are all taught a few simple principles:  Don't talk to strangers, If you can't say nothing good; don't say anything at all, Please, and Thank You.  Of course, we are taught much more, but these are some of the basic things that impact us and our business on a daily basis.
You ever go to the store or restaurant and purchase something and the cashier not greet you, and then when receiving your receipt or change they say, "Here ya go!" "There ya go!", and some even say nothing and wait for you to say Thank You.  What is … (15 comments)
