I know a team leader. Let’s call him Pete. Pete has many systems to make his team profitable. Some of these systems are subsidized by alliances with other firms like lenders who profit by getting the loans from these leads.   All good so far? The problem is this: when Pete calls, the lender snaps to attention and gets the answers and results right away. However, when team members call, they get promises which are broken again and again because of one emergency or another. So, some of these agents wait 5, 6, 7 or more weeks just to get a prequalification letter.   So, all these great leads get lost to other brokerages who don’t have expensive lead programs and their lenders actually get the job done. Like prequal letters in 90 minutes.   The point is this: when making business decisions...

I chose to look at Mondays as Motivational Mondays. Some of us may be thinking that we need an extra cup of coffee or an extra hour of two of sleep. I choose to say, give me an extra shot of motivation and set me on my way. As the year keeps slipping by us, I am focusing one week at a time on creating the best from within me. I hope that you enjoy this brief motivational clip to bring out the best in all of us as well. Each week, a new clip from a different angle, a different philosophy.

In our current housing market, it seems difficult to find your dream home to buy. Before the pandemic hit there was already a shortage of homes for sale. Many homeowners delayed their plans to sell and at the same time while more buyers aimed to take advantage of record-low mortgage rates and purchase a home.  There for a while we were only seeing a few new listings come out each day.   Today we have 77 new listings.  WOW.  Nice to see this picking up a bit.   Come take a look and  see the new real estate listings in North Idaho. https://www.northidahosandpoint.com/map/  It is a great time to sell and the buyers are eager to see new listings. If you are ready to list your home or property for sale, give me a call. Rain Silverhawk 208-610-0011
