An agent I know is in the middle of what might be a small claims lawsuit. Seller X has 4 cats and recently listed her home. The showing instructions make no mention of there being cats in the home. A few days later the buyer, Betty Bookmark showed up with her agent, Top Selling Todd. Unbeknownst ...

When my buyer (and most other buyers) attend a home inspection on the home they are purchasing they prefer that the seller and listing agent are not present. The buyer, the buyer’s agent and the inspector need to be able to discuss the findings and talk about possible resolutions without being in...

Every month baby Realtors come shooting of the real estate womb like a cannon ball. I remember desperately looking for solutions, answers and of course, clients.

One of the most important aspects of my duties is to be able to negotiate the best price, terms and set of conditions for my client. Over the last ten years I've learned a lot about myself and about people in general. It's almost always a give and take as they say. It's important to look at the b...

Last week a buyer called my phone and asked if she could make an appointment to view one of my listings. With 20 minutes notice it was all but impossible. When I tried to reschedule her for a different time she let me know that she would not be working with a real estate agent and that she also d...

This early morning I received an email from Trulia (as I do in all cases when I take a listing) asking about my latest listing. They wanted me to review the uploaded listing and make sure everything was accurate.    To be perfectly honest, I'm surprised how much faster Trulia has been with regard...
