I was speaking to an agent in my office about a new listing she is getting ready for market. It is a higher end executive home that has been rented to tenants for several years.

How do you know the real estate professional you picked can market your home correctly? One way is to look at how they market themselves. The process of selling a home a real estate professional uses can be one where they stick a sign in the yard and hope for the best, or work to put your propert...
My wife is set to retire from her job this coming May 1st. That's less than 2 weeks away. She has already been working from home for 5 weeks, unable to even go to her office to pick up some personal items. On top of this, I was home for the past 4 days as well. We may have just had a taste of wha...

This can really impact the ease with which Real Estate transactions get done. Because of this, the industry is turning more to virtual showing exper...
Lawyers. My brother was one till he retired. Guess he could still be one. I have played lawyers in the movies and on TV. But I never expected to become one in real life, or at least do some of a lawyers work.Let me explain (complain). Yesterday I had my seller clients come to my office to sign cl...
Approaching the last minutes before a closing scheduled for tomorrow, the buyer's agent realized that something very important for her buyers was not going to happen. She immediately called me to complain. Well, I said, this is why we have due diligence time frames here in Georgia. This is when t...
