5 reasons to choose a REALTOR® who knows REALTORs®

In a recent post we explained how vital it is for your REALTOR® to be a good listener and an effective communicator. Clear, prompt communication between a home seller and REALTOR® greatly increases the odds that your home will sell sooner and close to your asking price. But there is another advantage to listing with an agent who communicates well with you; she almost certainly is communicating well with other REALTOR®s. And having an established, reputable real estate agent who has earned the trust and respect of a network of peers gives you a decided edge as your property competes in the local housing market. This aspect of skilled communication takes a REALTOR® from good to great, and is essential to identifying serious home shoppers and closing a sale. Consider these five reasons for choosing a well-connected and communicative real estate agent who can enhance the experience of both buyers … Continue reading

Success is tied directly to one’s ability to communicate effectively. Think about it: On every level, in both our personal and professional lives, our most satisfying and fulfilling achievements begin and end with clear communication.

Here lies Open House — RIP, old friend

Thank you all for joining us today as we bid farewell to our very old friend, Open House. It wasn’t really so long ago that he was a vibrant part of our community. There was a time when he was respectable and dependable, a familiar face in our neighborhoods. But over the past 10 years or so we saw less and less of him. Rumor had it that he lost his reason to exist. There were a number of contributing factors leading up to Open House’s demise. For one, he no longer felt needed by his dearest friends, old-fashioned home sellers and unimaginative REALTORs®, both of whose days also are numbered. For another, Open House was hard to work with. He commanded a huge amount of time and energy. Vulnerable from suffering repeated rejections, frustrated home sellers and desperate REALTORs® often would turn to Open House to save the day. … Continue reading
