An Agents Most Precious Commodity

Once, a king and a lazy man named Haria were very good friends. One morning, the king said, “Why don’t you do work to earn some money?” Haria said, “No one gives me job. My enemies told everyone that I never do any work in time.” The kind king said, “You can go into my treasury and collect as much wealth as you can, till sunset.” Haria rushed home to tell this to his wife. She said, “Go and get the gold coins and gems now.” “I cannot go now. Give me lunch first.” After lunch, he took a nap

3D Home Tours Have Impacted Real Estate Seller’s Markets

When buying in a tight market, 3-D home tours give buyers a unique perspective on potential homes and provide critical online information.

I am a huge fan of agents taking the time to invest in themselves as a brand just like some of those big companies. It is important real estate agents have their brand within their corporate brands and build mindshare. Today, building your personal brand is just as important as building your company’s brand — in fact, it might even be more important. Consumers want to

The Hour-By-Hour Plan For The Top Producers

One of the things we all love about real estate as a career is it is never the same day twice.

A number of states and provinces are experiencing unprecedented low inventory levels. Nothing to buy and demand at an all-time high has caused a new and interesting challenge for the listing and buyer agents in the marketplace. Listing agents can’t get all the marketing they promised the seller they would do completed in time for it to hit the market and it is sold which is putting pressure on listing commissions and the listing agent losing the ability to spin more business off of their listing inventory. The buyer agents are frustrated with the listing agent moving too quickly and
