As a member of several groups across various social networks it is my responsibility as a real estate virtual assistant to know what is going on the the real estate industry. I came across this article today and though this would be something of value to my readers. Let me know what you think. We know that buying a home is a big and important decision. Selecting a good Loan Officer is a key part of your financial success. You will find our way of finding a good Loan Officer may be different from other blogs or postings.  I am seeing quite a few blogs or posts that are saying the same thing and I find the questions do not really pertain to finding a good Loan Officer. Also, I find it interesting to learn that a company is selling the data. What we have below did not come from any source ...

2008 was a year that tested me on many levels and I grew from every one of the experiences I encountered.  The most important thing I will take with me into 2009 and beyond is to be more aware of those that enrich my life, not only personally, but professionally.  As a real estate virtual assistant for over 10 years now I have met a lot of people in the real estate industry and it is refreshing to know that there are some pretty amazing people out there.  Some I have become very good friends with and the support we have for each other goes beyond a professional relationship.  It is refreshing to talk to real estate vendors and they know who you are and take the time to ask about my clients and how they can help them further. 2009 is going to be a the year of positive things and as you d...

With Real Estate market slowing down you are probably finding you have some extra time on your hands? Well, take advantage of the slow time and take a hard look at your business and determine what you need to do to make it better.Here are my suggestions:1. Update your listing presentation. 2. Go for those designations that you have wanted to get, but just did not have the time. 3. Update your website. Is the material current? 4. Update your computers. If you don't have a laptop - get one! You can find some great deals at www.dell.com, www.gateway.com and www.bestbuy.com 5. Take inventory of your programs. What are you using that you can improve and what are you not using that you should be. Or, get rid of the one's that don't work for you. 6. Update your database. Add your previous sell...
