We all know that real estate agents are not looked at by the public in the highest regard. That discussion is for another time.I want to help agents around the country be regarded by the public at large by starting with something simple.It hurts me to see that agents have on their correspondence...
Everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon. Pictures are great but video is the "next" thing that seems to be on most listings. There are videos that walk through the house, pan up and down but if your pictures are good enough, won't people want to see the home just because of them? I think w...
Everyone's time is worth something. From the lawyer at $1,000 per hour to the minimum wage worker at (now) $8.25. As an agent, your job is to work for your client and show them a home. The listing agent's job is to sell the home. The lister got the opportunity because he/she convinced the sel...

Time is money. Commissioned salespeople know this all too well. Today (and many times before), I showed a house to my client that they did not want to buy. There were issues, priced too high, needed work that you could not tell from the pictures, etc. I know now I will get a call from the agent...
