While it is a pleasure to work with most agents, every so often you have to deal with the agent that is not very professional!  Perhaps they do not have the best negotiaion skills, or better yet none at all! One of the things that gets me crazy in real estate is that when you present an offer, th...

I guess the thing that I know that is most responsible for my success in real estate is that I was asked to join a real estate mastermind group.  I belong to several, both local and National. Since real estate is highly competitive, agents in ones own office are least likely to compare real notes...

Have you ever looked at the list price sales / sales price ratio and assume nothinga adds up?  98% LP/SP ratio sounds great if taken at face value, but when you look closer it is not such a good dea for the seller or even your buyer if you are the buyers agent! l if the seller paid $6000 in closi...

How do you deal with really bad attitudes of buyers and sellers?  Life is more than handling a few objections or dealing with the client that constantly has to have thier hand held to more forward or make a decision.  They are OK and just part of the job.  But every so often we get the person tha...

This blog is a subliminal pet peeve I don't think I've ever seen shared in writing!  Almost everyday... when browsing through the MLS you come across a few listings that you feel like saying dropping to our knees and saying some prayers for the owner because the agent's MLS entries are so bad.  T...
