The latest tax credit ended Friday with the exception of California (offering its own $10k tax credit far beyond today).  Many Agents have been inundated with Buyers this week; Buyers who waited until the deadline.  As challenging as that has been (and continues to be) I congratulate those Agents...
"Normal" employees have an advantage when it comes to systems.  An employee's systems are created for them.  The employer knows what skills, what attitude, what education and experience he or she is looking for to succeed with the system of the job they are filling.  The employee is hired into an...
Over 22,000 Agents opened (and read) the article "Top Ten Negotiating Rules for REALTORS®."  From the Pacific Coast Highway to Hamptons; from the Upper Peninsula to Corpus Christi Real Estate Agents are eager to improve their negotiating skills.  It makes sense.  REALTORS® negotiate all the time ...
