real estate for sale: Wordless Wednesday, Can you see the future... - 03/21/12 10:15 AM

When there is no hope in the future; there is no power in the present...
  A quote of John Maxwell 
This is a powerful and believable quote. I don't try to judge those who I see in despair. I only try to help those who seem to want my help in their journey...

The last two words you want to hear before renewing your RE license...
 
Continuing education...
It's that time again and I need another 30 clock HRS to keep my real estate brokers license.  This year I have decided to be proactive and not wait till the last minute and scramble to obtain my clock hours.  It has really worked out well as I have taken some very interesting classes as of late.  I decided to take live attendance classes this cycle mainly because I did my classes online last cycle and found I didn't learn as much as I could have. … (12 comments)

Failure is success if we learn from it...
A quote of Malcolm Forbes
I have always learned far more from my mistakes than I will ever learn from my successes.  That is very humbling to admit however if each one of my mistakes has led to a success I'm way ahead of the game...

 Friday Fotos, Why Grandpa Smiles...

 
How often do we get to meet someone from the future? Someone who has endless possibilities for success and doesn't know any prejudice or hate. That's why I get so excited each time I look into my grandsons eyes...

real estate for sale: My neighbor, John, got X for his house, he told me so... - 03/12/12 10:29 PM
 My neighbor, John, got X for his house, he told me so...
I had a listing appointment today and I decided to approach the price question in a different way.  I often get shot down when I give my price opinion and I thought I would ask the seller what she thought her house was worth and then I would give my opinion and justify it with my data.

How refreshing it was to have the seller say, she had no idea what her house is worth and that is why I was sitting at her table.  Most of the … (33 comments)

real estate for sale: What are you looking for? - 03/10/12 03:28 PM

Much of what we see depends on what we're looking for… 
A quote of Phil Calloway 
If you look for beauty, you will find it. If you look for despair and ugliness, you'll find it. You just have to know that your mood dictates what you see around you...

real estate for sale: Friday fotos, Share the knowledge, encourage the growth! - 03/02/12 07:22 AM
 
The greatest good we can do for anyone is not to share our wealth with them, but rather to reveal their own wealth to them.  It’s astounding how much talent and ability rests inside a human being…
A quote of Zig Ziglar
This is a hard concept for many people to accept in today's society!

real estate for sale: Motivational Monday, Real Blessings... - 02/13/12 05:24 PM

Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments  …
A quote of Joseph Addison 
Sometimes I get so caught up in the disappointments, negativity and the moment, I don't realize how lucky I was to lose a battle only to win the war. Has that ever happen to you? I've never lost something that hasn't made me stronger and better equipped to handle the same challenge and succeed in the future....

real estate for sale: Wordless Wednesday, We know our friends... - 02/01/12 11:53 AM
 

In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends…
A quote of John Churton
Yes, everyone wants to be your friend when you're on top of the world however the world can be a lonely place when you have issues.  I try to reach out to those who are not the life of the party and make sure that they know they are still important to me…

real estate for sale: I'm tired of our industry being Stereotyped... - 01/31/12 07:21 PM
Do you ever get tired of being portrayed as one of those agents or brokers on television?  Are we being stereotyped?

Thank god they took Million Dollar Properties off the air.  What an insult to the hard working women and men who work in the industry day in and day out.  I know, most of the situations on that show were staged however most of the people watching believed we were all back stabbers and partied when we were done showing real estate.

My problem with Selling L.A. Is not so much with the story lines as it is with flashing the potential commission above … (9 comments)

real estate for sale: What is your description of the perfect real estate day? - 01/31/12 02:21 AM
What is your description of the perfect real estate day? I think I just had one, a perfect real estate day, that is.

My day started with an email from a service member in Korea.  He was looking for a real estate agent and he was just two miles from the DMZ separating North and South Korea.  He found me through my blog on ActiveRain.  We are now in the pre approval and home search phase of our relationship.
I then prepared for my 11:30 listing appointment.  I was meeting with four sisters who wanted to list their deceased mother's house.  I had … (14 comments)

real estate for sale: Motivational Monday, Celebrate... - 01/30/12 03:47 PM
 

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is and life to celebrate...
A quote of Oprah Winfrey 
 I have learned through many things in my life; some good, some bad.  Each challenge has made me stronger and every pleasant moment has put a smile on my face.  We just have to learn that for every unpleasant circumstance there's a pleasant moment waiting to be discovered...

real estate for sale: Are you ready, willing, and able to support your client's needs? - 01/23/12 02:25 PM
 Who can you depend on?
Sad but true, not all real estate professionals are created equally.  When you choose a real estate professional to manage the sale of your home, don't you expect him or her to check on your listing after a major storm?
 
When a call comes in from a client asking about the condition of their property, do you tell them;
You don't know. I don't have time to check on it. I'll get to it as soon as I can. Apparently none of the above should have been the answer given by a certain agent at … (5 comments)

real estate for sale: Call your agent, broker or me now! - 01/18/12 12:14 PM
 
It's snowing outside but my iPhone just keeps on ringing.
Some people are calling it SNOWmageddon but I believe it's a great day to work out of my home office.  People are staying home due to the snowfall and what a great time to get, through the magic of technology, on those computers and search for homes.
Remember people, you don't have to go out to look at houses or condos anymore.  We can come right into your living room and through pictures and virtual tours show you our inventories. When the snow will melt and we can go look at your … (8 comments)

real estate for sale: Does feedback constitute a testimonial? - 01/17/12 06:11 PM
Does feedback constitute a testimonial?
The day seldom goes by without someone asking for feedback on showings or listings in general.  If you say something nice about a product or listing should this feedback constitute a testimonial.

The definition of testimonial is; [tes-tuh-moh-nee-uhl]  noun
a written declaration certifying to a person's character, conduct, or qualifications, or to the value, excellence, etc., of a thing; a letter or written statement of recommendation.   something given or done as an expression of esteem, admiration, or gratitude. At some point, I know I've given feedback to another agent just to be nice.  Followed by an explanation why … (1 comments)

To Tell you the truth, I feel very safe tied to a dock however my boat is named "Let's Just Go" and the exhilaration of being underway is always exciting for my family and I. It's almost like experiencing life, all your senses are sharp and there's a sense of anticipation...

real estate for sale: Who is liable for your clients pet? - 01/09/12 03:17 AM
Who is liable for your client's pet?
So many Blog Posts have been written about Real Estate Listings with pets, I thought I would contribute this about my experiences...

Whether your an agent with a Buyer in tow or just out previewing, Don't pets in the remarks portion of a listing conjure up all sorts of thoughts in your head? Pets often are more of a nuisance than alarm systems. Don't get me wrong I'm a pet lover too! I always wade through the listing report and check for;
Day sleepers Alarm systems Pets Call before showing A good practice … (9 comments)
