I Must Be Doing Something Right, You Can Too!

I Must Be Doing Something Right

 

I often wonder about the time and effort that is put into being found by customers needing contractor services in the Sacramento area. Like many others, the regular posting and updating and learning new ideas can take a big chunk of the day - for some it is every day. Is it all worth the effort?

I do regularly get calls from people who have found me while searching for a dry rot contractor, or deck building, or siding replacement. Apparently my name comes up in many different areas of the searches, and that’s a good thing. It didn’t start right away but it has gradually gotten greater with time.

I have noticed that it does come and go like the tides. Multiple calls one day and none the next sort of thing is the pattern. I don’t know why that is exactly but many there is a reason. But lately the tide has gotten stronger, more calls on a regular basis with heavy calls on days like today. So I must be doing something right.

I don’t use any other form of advertising, so my friends and fellow contractors can’t quite figure out why I’m so busy while they are struggling to find new work. I’ve tried to explain what it is that I’m doing and why I do it, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. They will have a long lists of excuses, many of which I used to believe myself.

I used the some excuses: I don’t have the time, I don’t know what to blog about, no one cares what I have to say, and nobody else is doing this. I have to just chuckle and say, “Give it a try”. It is working for me, I think it can work for you too.

Tubs and Showers are Changing
Tom Arstingstall, General Contractor, Dry Rot, Water Damage Sacramento, El Dorado County - (916) 765-5366, General Contractor, Dry Rot and Water Damage (Dry Rot and Water Damage www.tromlerconstruction.com Mobile - 916-765-5366)

There is a growing market for safe showers and tubs in the Sacramento region. Baby Boomers are reaching out for more friendly construction choices. Showers with seats, walls with grab bars and easy access steps can all be found by many manufacturers today.

If you have a need for a special tub or shower, contact your local general contractor for help.

East Sacramento: Sutter housing project approved by council
Doug Reynolds, Realtor - Sacramento, CA (Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate)

This has been in the works for quite a few years and is now starting to come to fruition. I know some of the nearby residents are not too thrilled about it but i was at a presentation the builders put on and they are focused on maintaining values, not impacting traffic and keeping the look of the homes in line with the beautiful neighborhood.

Here's the info from the City of Sacramento:

SutterProject
 
Sacramento City Council last week gave the okay for a residential project that will replace the Sutter Memorial Hospital in East Sacramento. The hospital will be closing its doors–which has been open since the late 1930s–once the new hospital in midtown is operational this fall.
Known as Sutter Park, the 120-home development would be developed on 20 acres of land within one of Sacramento’s oldest neighborhoods. It would include a mixture of classic architectural styles, from traditional park homes, to row homes, to cottages, to mixed-use housing on top of retail.
You can stay up-to-date by visiting the project website.
Cool tidbit: The area that we all know today as East Sacramento was established in the mid 1800s as Sutter Township, and it was home to some of the region’s most productive farms, dairies, orchards and nurseries.

How to Find an East Sacramento Real Estate Agent
Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, Put 40 years of experience to work for you (Lyon Real Estate)

Mostly I figure out who is visiting my website by the phone calls I receive from potential home sellers and buyers in Sacramento. Based on the questions they ask me, I can decipher what they were looking for online when they ran across my name. Sometimes, I ask them to tell me exactly which words they entered into the search box, and often it's a two-word or three-word search such as East Sacramento agent, but some find me from the long tail as well. I don't really care how they find me just as long as they call me. They can also mispronounce my name and I don't care because it's not really my name, just a name I borrowed.

If I really want to know where my visitors originate, I can study my google analytics. I was a little astonished yesterday when I spotted an analytical search from Google that landed a person on my website. I should probably check my stats more often than I do.

Photos of Homes in the Pacific Northwest and East Sacramento
Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, Put 40 years of experience to work for you (Lyon Real Estate)

Some of the emails I get from spammers are quite amusing because it's obvious that English is not the writer's primary language. Today I spotted an email called: Don't be a Doormat and Let Your Door Walk All Over You. But I did open the email from a writer in Portland, Oregon, who said she liked my photo gallery of homes in NW Portland. I have a photo gallery of homes in Vietnam that I started but I never finished it because I had to write verbiage to accompany each photo, and honestly, everything I wrote sounded so similar. Not to mention, many of the truly historic homes in Vietnam are behind walls, and most of the photos I shot of homes all looked the same.

I take photos of homes everywhere I go. I'm not just a real estate agent in Sacramento because it's a lucrative occupation. It's because I truly love homes. So, I am sharing my photo galleries with you, of homes in East Sacramento, homes in Land Park, homes in Portland, Oregon, and homes in Mendocino, California. See the photo galleries in my personal blog today on my business website at Photo Galleries of Homes in East Sacramento and Elsewhere.

Before Buying a Home in East Sacramento
Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, Put 40 years of experience to work for you (Lyon Real Estate)

buying a home in east sacramentoI sometimes forget when I'm talking with people I pay for services that they might want to hire me for my services. That's not a good thing to forget about when you're in the business of selling and buying real estate in Sacramento. Because almost every person I meet from any walk of life is in some sort of home buying or home selling situation and, if they're not, they wish they were.

As any Sunday Open House attendee can tell you, all it takes is that wish to buy or sell a home, and before you know it, it's happening. Yesterday, I was looking through the wedding photos from my hairdresser's recent wedding when it dawned on me that she is telling me she needs to buy a house in East Sacramento.
