I had a new idea that I'm thinking about trying out for getting new listings.  I would like to send out a flyer to all of the forsalebyowner people to see if they're tired of trying to sell their house and let me have the listing.  I do think that this could be a good opportunity to list properti...

I was looking at the paper today online and this article about a real estate agent caught my eye.  Its about a academic adviser and a real estate agent holding a $10 a ticket raffle for a prostitute.  The prostitute was also a child sex-abuse caseworker.  Not a good way to use Craigslist as a rea...

At the office, there is this one agent that started a few months ago.  He's someone I would definetely describe as being wierd.  First off he has a mirror in front of his phone that he uses to gaze at himself.  For what reason, I don't know.  But another co-worker suggested that it may be some ty...

One important piece of information that sellers want is the feedback from other agents and clients that have viewed their property.  When I first became an agent, I use to call the agent and hope to get responses.  Now that I've joined the 21st century, I have all of that automated by a website t...

Today I was really flattered when I got a call from another agent asking me questions about how to price a 4 Flat in Chicago.  I was more than happy to tell her how I did my pricing and what to look for.  I feel that everyone should take time to answer newer agents questions.  Not only did it mak...

I wonder how many agents out there send out Xmas cards to former clients?  I think its a good idea but I have never been the type of person to send out cards at Xmas time.  I do receive cards from my insurance agent, my bmw dealership, and even my work.  Hopefully, I'll start sending out somethin...

Are you the type of agent that has 20+ listings?  10 or maybe even 5 listings?  What if you had to deal with 20+ listings in 6 months.  Would you change the way you do things now?  I have to ask myself that questions because I do have a lot of listings now.  I have the same system that I use for ...

After dozens of listings and a few sales, this year is about to be a wrap.  Looking back I've made some good contacts and had some really happy clients.  Going forward I would like to attract more buyers.  I have a lot of listings but I'm working on expanding my reach to more 1st time home buyers...

I accidently started watching this show the other night and now I'm addicted to it.  One lady on the show, Lisa, is a real estate broker.  Anyway, on one show she sold a multi-million dollar house and earned a commission of $250,000.  My jaw hit the floor.  She didn't do anything to show the hous...

With the economy being so bad, a lot of professionals aren't really giving 100% to their customers.  But as a customer, how can you tell if you're professional is working hard for you? Well you can't look at someone and tell by their face if they're trying 100% unlike armwrestling.  If you list a...
