Yesterday, one of my associates brought in a direct mail piece sent by one of the competing brokers in my marketplace. This particular broker is a very small franchise office (less than 10 associates) within one of the big name brands. On the mailer, the broker made the following statement "When it is time to sell, do not pay 5 to 6% of your homes value when you can receive the same high level professional service from a name you can trust for only 3 ½%." They went on to list the services included in their "premier full service plan" and even offered an unconditional service guarantee to prospective clients. An interesting business proposition... What I find problematic about this pitch has little to do with the advertised fee. Whether this broker chooses to take a listing at a fee lowe...

Today I thought about all the things that I've been blessed with.  A beautiful wife, smart and healthy children, 1/2 a brain to have common sense, book and street smarts, really good friends, and a supportive family.  Business has been good and picking up and today I hired my 2nd Buyers Agent in 2 weeks. This got me thinking...  many are not doing so well...  heck... last year I wasn't doing so we until I figured out what I needed to figure out.  What was it you might ask?  Well, I figured out that I needed to build my business the way I saw it 10 years from now.  I think most people don't think that far ahead.  I usually don't so this was a bit unusual for me too, but think about it.  In 10 years will you be doing business the same way you're doing business today?  Do you want to be a ...

I read a short post today from Sham and the thought was to go after listings, be proactive.  In my opinion Pro-Active IS the way to go.  I teach this to new agents and if you look around your market, most agents are re-active...  Look throughout your own office, most people are complaining about the market, most are getting second jobs or getting out of real estate all together.  In this Shifting Market reactive people tend to be scared...  scared people tend to freeze up or make decisions based on fear and fear is NEVER a good place to be in to make decisions for your business. Think about it...  Everything is scary until you figure it out, so...  educate yourself about what business options you have, then build a plan to execute on them.  Don't be scared, be proactive, learn your opti...

 Testimonials  Stephanie & Robert Coulombe -  This was our first home buying experience, everyone told us how tedious the mortgage process can be. We were pleasantly surprised how easy AMIC made this process for us. They understood this was our first mortgage experience and encouraged us to ask as many questions as we needed to. They explained EVERYTHING to us! Follow up calls and personal attention was GREAT! They really made us feel comfortable about our first huge investment. We would definitely recommend AMIC to anyone! Steve Melillo - I've used AMIC on several occasions and they have always been timely, efficient and professional. I would use them again and again as their performance has always been exceptional.

  Looks like the month of July, 2008 shows a sustained recovery for the Princeton Junction real estate market. As you can see from the table below, the average sale price is up over the previous 2 months, the average days on the market is steady with the previous month and bettern than 2 months ago, and the number of months to sell off the current inventory at this pace is a remarkably low 4 months! That's way lower than the state average of 10.5 months!  This is exciting news for the Princeton area and proves that West Windsor continues to lead the real estate recovery in New Jersey!
