        We, as agents, know what the market was like a few years ago. What some don't realize is how to do the same amount of business in this new climate. One thing to keep in mind is that much more effort is required. Our jobs are essentially split into two parts. The first part is getting the clients and the second part is doing the work to service those clients. When an agent has reached some level of success, his job becomes a much smoother operation. There are buyers agents, assistants and transaction coordinators, etc, to help ease some of his work load. Most of us have not attained that level of success.         For the majority of us, it is a busy day doing what we can to market ourselves and our properties; keep in touch with our clients and people that may become our clients;...

(BETHESDA REAL ESTATE)Some folks are just great negotiators.  That's a good thing, right?  We all want to get the best deal possible and feel like we won.  Depending on the circumstances, you can negotiate yourself right out of a home with this strategy though.  I know. I've been through it often enough lately...Here's how the conversation goes:Client:  I am going to want to really negotiate for this and get the best deal.Me:  That's great.  What area are you looking in and what kind of price range?Client:  I'd like something in new construction in Cabin John for under $950KMe:  You realize there are about 10 sales per year in that location and much of those are for new construction well over $1M?  There is not that much property that fits your specific needs.  This particular home is n...

BETHESDA HOMES are very popular in Montgomery County, MD.  People buy homes in Bethesda because of the proximity to Washington, D.C., for the very highly ranked public schools, location of several METRO Stations and out of this world shopping.  Understanding the market for Bethesda real estate is critical to getting the best price for your home of choice.  The table below is a report of homes in Bethesda that SOLD between December 1, 2007 through January 20, 2008.  Listed by List Price but also showing the original prices, SOLD Price, seller subsidy and the Days on the Market for the properties.  Published SOLD statistics do not always report Original Price or Seller Subsidy.  These numbers are important when determining the NET for comparable homes in an area.    List Price Original Pr...

   This logo represents the home of the finest Navy Medical care in the world. Those of us that live and work in the area, have driven by the hospital for years and I have to admit, that after a period of time it becomes merely a benchmark in a trip up and down Wisconsin Avenue.Well, your new duty station (or place of employment) has been standing since the day after Independence Day in 1938. Members of your facility have been called upon to take care of Presidents and foreign dignitaries. Your alumni were the ones that assisted President Roosevelt with his fight against polio.Your base was the place that the nation entrusted the final remains of JFK.Reagan and his wife both sought out your care.Sounds impressive, but totally overlooks your main mission.
