When I got my Texas real estate license I guess I missed the small print at the bottom of the license which states:  "...you must wear many hats...".  Since I started I have mowed grass, cleaned windows, decorated, cleaned houses, sat with pets, and given advice on a multiple of subjects, and now I'm a financial analyst on Global banking.  Now, don't get me wrong.  I hold my own with my clients.  But I wonder where the Phd financial advisory hotrods are?  Where did they go?  When one of my clients thinks of me, his realtor, to find out the financial condition of our country I start thinking these financial types must be out of clients and not making a living. That's all right.  I've picked up more customers and it just opens another line of marketing to sell real estate.

We got a new assitant in our office and within a week we are beginning to get back to normal (if there is such a thing).  She's a good one.  Sometimes it's hard, even for agents, to sort a list of priorities and do the right one at the right time and go to the next one.  This assistant we have now, caught the office current within this week and now we can move ahead with our prospecting and bringing in new business.  So here's hats off to ours and all the assistants out there in the real estate industry who work relentlessly and hard to see our deals through.  Thanks to you.

Just recently at a social gathering hosted by a local title company,  I met a closer who will make a house call if necessary and has in the past in order to get the close completed.  What a deal for the title company and the agents, and most importantly....for the clients.  Imagine closing your side of the transaction from the kitchen table.  Great service idea.

I'm finding many leads and lookers of homes right now appear to be people who need a bigger house or a better floor plan for their elderly parent(s) or kids returning home after college, or even yound couples moving in with their parents.  And at an open house this weekend, I had a possible customer come by and quickly look at the floor plan:  3 bedrooms down with 2 up, a great layout to keep mom in the first floor 2 bedrooms all to herself, the bedrooms were just off the kitchen and she wouldn't be going up and down any stairs (a hazard for older folks).  Agents, keep your eyes open for opportunities for a famly looking for extra space for a loved one.  It makes economic sense.  Whether it's good for family to come home to roost with your family will depend alot on communication and ex...

Having yet to attend a class on short sales, I'm thinking that I have saved some money I can use toward some other class more pertinent.  With the recent article in Realtor Magazine and from other realtors, short sales don't appear to be all they are hyped to be.  Some are not getting their commissions from lenders, and the transactions are taking forever to complete if they close.  And classes are being pitched to us realtors like a miracle for our properties getting ready to be foreclosed on.  Hmmm, are there any successl stories or multiple success stories on short sales.  Has anyone been doing these for years, enough to make great commissions and at the same time taking care of their clients?  Maybe I should take a class on short sales just to find out what not to do.

My first two weeks in being a Realtor I was attending a series of "fast start" classes designed to get a newbie up and running when a question from a female newbie was whether she should get a "glamour" photo for her new business card.  At which time the teacher answered - "well, you can scare them now or you can scare them later."  The majority of the time you scare them later.  I just recently refered a client to another (according to her photo on her card) young realtor in another city.  But when the client called back to give me an update, he said she was 61.

JUNE 25, 2008 With the month of June coming to an end and July approaching quickly, things couldn't be hotter here at the relocation office. So far this summer our agents have been as hot as the weather, helping our office in closing over 50 relocation units alone in the month of June! The Southlake Town Square is preparing for their annual Fourth of July Stars and Stripes Celebration. It's from 5 to 10 pm on Thrusday July 3rd and is absolutely free. So anybody thats in the area should come check out the home of our relcation center and enjoy the fireworks, live music and drinks! Fireworks start at 9:30 and being from the area, I can say that it is truly an event you don't want to miss! We hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Fourth of July! Happy Independence Day from the ladies at ...
