I feel all the antics and showmanship are unnecessary. 1. Take care of all your current clients. If you do this you will get referrals. 2. When you go to the referred persons house for the listing appointment just be yourself but be sure to bring a proper sellers services presentation so they know what you ans your company offer. 3. Be confident but don't try to oversell yourself. 4. Do not disparage the competition. You can be the best without bringing the others down. 5. come prepared with everything you need should they want you to list immediately. 6. Professional secret. I can't tell you.

We all sell condos, townhouses, carriage houses and other properties that have bylaws and rules & regulations that govern the association.

Sounds weird however after 9 hours with out of state buyer clients showing condos for a second home in Burlington, Vermont I was ready for dinner. When I got home I asked my wife if she would like to go to the Tavern for dinner. Well SURE!  We went down the road to the "Town Tavern" ,  a nice loc...
That was a great line in the “Field of Dreams” but it holds doubly true in real estate developments. It is harder to sell a concept on a map than something you can feel. I have always said to my developer associates “turn over some soil, pour some concrete and get the spruce up” People need to se...
In the real estate and real estate support industry we see both extremes and everything in between. From the 1820 Garrison Brick Colonial that has original windows and little if any insulation to the Leeds certified 5 star plus energy efficient new builds that are going up in all climates.  Yes, ...
Well I had posted a blog back in April about "Wine Cellar or No Wine Cellar... That is the question"  Back then I was actually considering selling the components on my wine cellar (that I had brought over from a previous house I had sold because the buyer would have rather it be a closet) and usi...
I'll tell you why!   It’s not to protect our new Audi, or our youngest child's beater of a car or our late model luxury car as much as it is to protect our neighbors, our fellow townspeople and any other drivers that could be involved in a collision with us. It could be a tourist, our pharmacist,...
This was a question put to me from my Principal Broker during our yearly session for my business plan.  At first I thought it was a goofy question as It can be embarrassing to talk about the qualities that set you apart.
