Real Estate Agent - Coldwell Banker United Realtors
It has been a long hard year and with the economy still in peril I have had to take on another job to make ends meet.  Its been a long time since I've posted but I have a new vibe on life now.  I've been through several changes that make me feel good about whats to come.  I am not going down with...
I am about to delve into the realm of contacting expired listings but I'm not sure which approach to take.  Does anyone out there have any dialogue recommendations?  I think there is a grand market out there for listings because half of the ones I've contacted so far they nor their agents had a c...
That is my question to all of you agents out there.  Everything in this business is dues and membership.  I was in law enforcement for several years and once you were certified on something then thats it you were certified.  You had to keep up with updates but there were no dues involved or whate...
I was contacted by a local reporter wanting to do a piece on the real estate condition.  She did a wonderful job with the interview.  She in fact came into the office with research she did on the market in our state.  She indicated she could not find anything supporting all of the media hype talk...

October the 18th I met with my client to discuss what kind of home she would be looking for.  I made my notes and immediatley began my search.  I was to meet with her on the 20th (Saturday) to show her the homes on my list.  We met as scheduled and the 4th house we came to she fell in love with. ...
Finally after 6 weeks of doing battle with FHA I closed my first sale this afternoon and have another close for next Thursday.  I just signed 3 buyers this week so I'm hoping for a few more closes this month as well.  That first deal felt great though.  It gave me a breath of fresh air.  Tomorrow...
My client is going through FHA for her loan because it is a mobile home.  This mobile home is very nice on the lake with beautiful landscaping so its not just your mobile home park type of set up.  We are told 10/19 is a good closing date and the FHA processor said they had everything they needed...
As a new agent I have tried a few things to generate leads.  I have looked up expired listings, gone to FSBO open houses, and put out some door hangers for houses that aren't for sale.  So far none of them have been very productive with the exception of one FSBO that I have now as a potential buy...
