What I learned in Real Estate this week..........

What I learned in Real Estate this week...........

Everytime I write one of these posts I look through my phones pictures & calendar.  I find a plethora of real estate related information, notable dates and FUNNY stuff!

SO, without further adieu, I bring you the last several days in the lovely world of REAL ESTATE!: 

  • Some days I find myself without my camera.  My iphone takes pretty good pictures in a pinch!
  • If there is a MAJOR highway closure in your city, find out prior to heading out to show homes.  You will save yourself time & frustration.
  • The people who send you referrals are your biggest cheerleaders.  Don't forget to thank them.  Small gestures go a loooooooonnnnnnnng way.  A simple thank you note, a gift card, lunch or a happy hour with them is a ton to let them know you mean it when you say "Thank you! You totally rock!"
  • Being on facebook does bring you business.  TRUST ME.
  • Not everyone is going to want to work with you.  Not everyone is going to like you.  Just do your best.
  • Some buyers aren't really buyers.  They are just curious about the market and way too scared to pull the trigger when it comes to writing an offer.
  • Not all agents get excited over referrals.  Heck, some don't even know how to answer their phone.
  • The Real Estate tides are changing.  I see proof of it everyday.  If you were looking to buy at the bottom you better hurry up.
  • Take time off.  Don't forget.  You need to rejuvinate your mind & it's ok to take time off.

And last but not least!

  • I love working AR referrals.  I already knew this but had it reinforced to me recently.  It justifies my blogging time & makes me one happy girl!
