This weekend I showed houses to some of the nicest clients I have had in a long time. They were friendly, kind, appreciative, happy, and ready to buy. I did find them a home they love and we are working on the offer now. Of course, they are cash buyers. I have been writing and manifesting perfect...
Are you working less and shopping more? Are you going to more parties and showing up alittle later? Are you starting your end tasks for your business? Are you less excited to prospect and more excited to wrap gifts and drink alittle cider? Maybe your holiday has started?
When I first started in real estate, I thought the once the deal was closed, that my job was pretty much done. Through the years, I have learned, that this is not necessarily so. Some service items are necessary to aid the buyers and sellers and some are good just to stay in touch with the client...

My email is still iffy on receiving. I also posted on facebook that I was hacked. Even my bank called me. I hope no one e...
Photos of listed homes for sale need to be changed and refreshed each few months. This gives the listing a new perspective and also an accurate view of the home. Just moving some items in the home and changing the lighting can make a difference in how the home is viewed online. You only get one c...
For the first time ever, I asked a listing agent yesterday to prepare a Notice to Perform for my buyer. The buyer has not deposited the earnest money for over 2 weeks. They also have not provided proof of funds. They have done a home inspection. They are communicating but not doing anything. In t...
My agents and I have been doing mastermind groups for many years. We share ideas on marketing, closing, prospecting and so on. We have a Japanese friend coming from Hawaii this weekend who has not been to the mainland very often. We wanted to make places to show here around our area and show her ...
