Every Realtor has an idea of how they think their first transaction is going to go, but let me tell you -- it almost never works out exactly how you plan. There will always be new challenges to face and obstacles to overcome -- but it's the way you handle these objections that will make all the difference!

My first sale was nothing like I thought it would be!

 


It all started with a phone conversation I had with the sweetest lady I had ever spoken to. She had been traveling in an RV across the southwest for the past 6 months and had just listed her condo with another agent. After weeks of having her home on the market, and receiving little to no correspondence from her agent, she began to lose hope in actually selling her property.

After…

Before buying or selling a home, we have to go through various third party vendors to ensure that the property is in good condition, and you are getting the best deal for your prospective future home.

Lori Guy works for Stewart Title, and is one of the best title representatives in the area!

When buying or selling a home, it is common practice for a title company to be involved in the transaction -- and that is exactly what Lori does! Her primary role is to ensure that the person selling their home has the right to do so. She does this by validating the transaction through extensive fact checking. After their information requirements have been met, she then issues a guarantee that is backed by title insurance. This title insurance is meant to…

There is no denying that this has been quite the year for everyone - a rollercoaster of events with many ups and downs along the way. In light of that, we want to give you some takeaways we found helpful, so you can end the year on a positive note. 

 

1. Analyze

Assess what you've learned. Maybe you learned a lot of ways to do something (or not to do something). Maybe you've overcome hurdles you've never imagined. There are lessons in the good and the bad.

 

2. Step It Up

To make the best out of any situation, it is important to operate from the highest version of yourself. It’s easy to step back and blame. What’s harder is owning our shortcomings and taking initiative to take action.

 

3. Get Clear

What are you looking…

Taking the right photos is one of the biggest influencers in marketing a home. Home searchers often use the internet to research homes and high quality pictures that are bright, clear, stand apart from the crowd. This can go a long way in selling your home quickly and can even get you a better deal! We take great pride in having excellent photography and want to put the best foot forward on your home! Here’s what to expect when the time comes: 

 

Have your home ready to shoot

If you’re not a photographer, or familiar with staging a home, sometimes it’s easy to look over the small stuff - the mop in the corner, the plethora of items you like on the bathroom sink for convenience, the used towels in the bathroom, or the assortment of…

Location, location, location! There are many things you can change about a home, but this isn’t typically one of them. There are no “perfect homes”, every home has its quirks. Find out what is most important to you and what are areas you are willing to compromise on.

Be ready to move quickly when you find what you want. Losing the opportunity to move on your dream home can be heartbreaking.

Pay attention to floor plans, would a particular layout work for better for your lifestyle?

Always do a home inspection. It will save you in the long run.

Vacant homes may appear bigger than they are. Use your phone to take photos, notes or videos of the properties to review later. Property details can blur together after several home viewings.

Every Realtor wants a quick sale, an easy transaction that is as stress free as possible.

Our team does everything within our power to exceed these expectations for our clients. However, every property, homeowner, and situation is unique, and listing a home it’s not always as straightforward as you might think.

Last summer, we listed a triplex and got an offer for our client in 14 days!

Everything was looking great and running extremely smooth, until about three days before the closing date.

We got a call from the title company saying that we wouldn’t be able to close because the carport extended over the property line, by matter of about four feet. 

My client could not extend the closing date because he was due to leave the country for…

When faced with difficult situations you have two choices: succumb or overcome. 

To succumb is to fail to resist pressure, temptation, or some other negative force. It is, quite literally, a failure by giving up and letting your environment control you, your surroundings, and your future.

To overcome is to overpower or overwhelm, succeed in dealing with a problem, defeat an opponent and to prevail.

We are given these choices everyday, and must face them head on.

Currently, there are still restrictions on who is considered "essential" and what businesses can operate. I know that this is a point of contention however, I believe all businesses are essential in some way, especially when it comes to local economies. And, of course, people are…
