Excellent communication in any business is key but in the world or real estate, its KING! Whether you're an agent, title officer, mortgage broker or a painter working on a first time home buyer's home, we are dealing with people's emotions! Whether purchasing a home or selling a mortgage note, it is an emotional transaction for most and the way to alleviate some of that "anxiety" is to have EXCELLENT communication skills? Why? Because if your client doesn't hear from you for more than 24 hours, their anxiety level shoots through the roof. DO NOT, under any circumstances wait more than 24 hours to call your client, even if you have nothing to report. It's better to give them an update on nothing! Remember to always put yourself in your client's shoes. Are those shoes comfortable? Have a ...

A few days ago, after I got most of my real estate appointments set up for a couple of days, I thought it would be a great idea to spend an afternoon taking a hike in Danbury's Tarrywile Park. It's a great spot to enjoy nature in all of it's glory with over 700 acres and over 21 miles to trails. With my camera in hand and sunglasses on, I took a short drive over to the Southern Boulevard entrance, a short trip from anywhere in Danbury. The city of Danbury purchased the land about 25 years ago from a developer that was hoping to create a community similar to Heritage Village in Southbury and has continued to acquire land over the years, making it today larger than Central Park in New York City. With a terrain varying from large open meadows to dense forested hills as well as a couple of...

What a Listing Agent Provides Selling a home is among the largest financial undertakings that most of us deal with, but the process can go smoothly with the help of the right listing agent. As a seller, you should interview candidates until you meet a person who understands your needs, and can help you from listing to closing. When you sign a contract with a listing agent, you agree to pay a commission, probably between 4 and 6 percent of the selling price, or possibly a flat fee. This is a major financial transaction and you should be happy with the marketing plans for your home. Here’s what you can expect a listing agent to do: Set the listing price An agent should be able to provide you with a competitive market analysis (CMA). This free assessment compares your home to similar ones ...
