I cover 4 counties because we go where the buyer client needs to go.  I know most of it, because I have put in the time and effort to learn it.

When we moved to central florida, I spent months driving, visiting , and learning communities...without a GPS. Mike says you can't learn the streets if you depend on a GPS...thats true.

To expand your knowledge,  you have to get out of your comfort zone.

David,
If I’m going to be in an area I don’t typically work I may drive through or preview just to broaden my awareness of that part of town.

In comparison to your area Erie is small town, but there are still a few areas I have not been too.  Like any area there are areas where you DON'T want to list or show for safety reasons.  Thanks for the Q David Barr

I visit all of the above, to show homes that the buyer wants to see, but have not listed or sold in them all.  I probably haven't shown houses in all of them either, but I'm working on it as best I can.

Yes, we do, as there are many neighborhoods that I do not know David Barr!  Currently we are just previewing new homes on the market in our niche, though once a week at Weekly Staff Meetings we go on Home Tours and they are in areas that I have never showed, listed, nor know my way around.  They are not in the town where we live!

well I am one of those small town girls and have been doing this for 24 years now, so I'm not sure there is a single neighborhood left where I haven't had a listing or made a sale.  Can't think of one.  There is a condo building I have not sold a unit in, but I have been there and am familiar with it.
