  Statistics show that no matter who your target market is, and no matter how much marketing you do, a large bulk of your business will come from past clients and referrals.  When you think about the impact this could make to your bottom line, don’t you wish you had a system in place that would allow you to send birthday and/or anniversary cards without lifting a finger?

Are You a First Time Home Buyer - looking to buy in the Palatine area? 95% of our clients this past year were first time buyers.    Note however - that you just have 2  weeks left to have a seller signed contract for a home (April 30th is the deadline) - in order to receive the $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit.  You must close by June 30th. We've helped people find their perfect home in as little as 3 days - so - no worries (as they say in Australia) if you are only getting around to deciding to buy now.   Due to our very in-depth initial consultation interview - we gain a very deep understanding of your needs, which allows the ability to laser-target (and show you) exactly what you are looking for.   But if you want variety - and to gain a sense of what is a "good deal" and wha...

I have been writing recently about the housing market and how the market is down which is not new to anyone. Because the housing market is down pricing your home right is what is going to sell your home. This is important for both buyers and sellers. Real estate agents are getting bad reputations now a day for something that is completely out of our hands. Please remember we do not control the economy and the housing market. We are here to represent the buyers and sellers and use the knowledge we have, in the best way that we know how, in order to get what our buyers and sellers want. That is why it is so important to work with a knowledgeable agent, in my case a team of agents who know what your needs are, and we make sure that you get taken care of. I am continueing to blog about diff...
