Real estate is a tough business to work in so many ways.  To survive, one needs to be aggressive; self-motivated; able to work with a client based on their times and not ours; and also capable of working a lot of self-promotion. The business of selling ourselves to a potential client starts online. It is a must as the product we are trying to sell is entirely based on Internet exposure as are most of the sellers and buyers.Social media has become the portal through which the business flows, and having the exposure and technology available to impress through this portal will differentiate an 'agent' from a 'good agent' through to the 'best agent'. Being a consistent blogger on the right portal cab get one recognized as the true professional in a given area, based upon the content of mate...

In Waterbury CT Not All Memorial Day Ceremonies Were to Honor the Fallen On this Memorial Day, as we honor the brave men and women that gave their lives to protect our freedom we also celebrated in Waterbury CT the unselfish feats of Waterbury natives as well.  This past week, the Waterbury CT Veterans Memorial Committee held their annual 'Support Our Troops' event that honored men and women that had proudly served our country to protect our freedoms.  The honors were bestowed on veterans of military conflicts from World War II to the current Middle East struggles. Five veterans of World War II were also honored as honorary Mayors of the Day in Waterbury CT, and one of them was my father, Joseph Silva, who proudly served in the Navy. All the honorees spoke humbly of the time they served...

While not a large property it was like using the training wheels on your first bike.With guidance from my broker, I took all the necessary steps to get the condo listed, properly marketed and then waited for a qualifying offer to materialize.With modest activity, my broker suggested I try an open house as a way of getting people through the condo and maybe even pick up a few buyer prospects as well.With my first open house, there were a few potentials that came through as well as a buyer with his agent. The agent introduced herself and we chatted briefly while ...

What’s My Waterbury CT Country Club Rd Neighborhood Home Worth, May 2017?   Located in the most western end of Waterbury CT, the Country Club neighborhood of Waterbury gets its name due to the presence in that neighborhood of the Waterbury Country Club, one of the most prestigious private golf courses in Western CT.The people that originally moved to that area were the most influential residents of the Waterbury area and its surrounding, many being founders of the companies that once dotted the town. Accordingly the homes in that area were some of the larger homes in town and accordingly the most prized.Today, that area of town still carries the highest home values and is still prized for the services available there as well as the quality of life.   Search for homes in Waterbury CT Zip...
