I have only been in real estate to know what a down market is. The broker I started with lost my real estate application to send to the DRE for three months, so I ended up missing the end of the Great Central Valley Seller's Market. I can't wait for the market to turn, but am focusing on the here...
I wanted to take the time today to introduce my broker, Bryan Sparks to Active Rain. He has been a big influence on my career in Real Estate, especially in acquiring and how to finish deals. Bryan has been exposed to Real Estate his whole life and has been an agent for over 20 years and has spent...
I know its been a while since I last blogged. I have been swamped with bank owned properties (REOs) and bringing sales to fruition. Over the last few weeks I have found that there are certain fees that buyers may not be aware of when purchasing REO properties compared to short and fair market sal...
When dealing with customers all agents know that customer service is the key to success in any client-driven industries. However, many agents do not apply that when it comes to working with other agents. I know that we are in competition with each other for that elusive sale, but do Realtors have...
Many Realtors are having a hard time. In my area it is not uncommon for a Realtor not to have sold a house for the entire year.

Many people feel that this is the worst market in decades and that many Realtors are dropping like flies.  How can I say that this is a good time to be in Real Estate?  The answer to that is two-fold. First, although sales are off, now is an excellent time to create business relationships with pe...
In my part of the country, many professionals are speculating that we are a year or so off on hitting the bottom. Every time it seems that things are starting to get better, another wave of foreclosures hit the market extending the inventory from 11 months to 15 or more. In Stockton, national fig...
Hi Everyone, Matthew Zgonc here and  I just wanted to take this moment to introduce Beverly Eagle-Rodriguez to the Active Rain Network.  She is a Realtor at the ERA Village ONE Office in Modesto and is a rising star to real estate. She and I started at the office at around the same time period an...
When I first entered the Real Estate Industry I had no guidance or clues what to do to obtain or keep clients. I got a few through paying a monthly fee on RealtyTrac, but had only 1 sale within the first year. That is when my wife discovered Active Rain and I have been more busy than I could ever...
