There was a blog here recently from a home inspector who basically accused Realtors® of only recommending home inspectors who are quick, easy and don't find defects.   He said they pay us for referrals, even said some that are easy to schedule might be, um, well let's just say he implied they hav...
I love this post about using social media to be the best at our business, and how our clients are using it too.   I have gotten lots of buisness from my use of Facebook and Linked in, and of course, Active Rain.   And also been better prepared with information while showing homes because of my iP...

How's the real estate market in North Arlington, VA?  Well activity is down, but sales price and list price to sales price ratio were up.   I can tell you as a very busy agent working in North Arlington that inventory is a problem.  Not the problem you hear about on the news with too many houses ...

I am a big fan of Zillow (not Zestimates, however).  It is a popular site and I have met some quality, real buyers and sellers on that site.  And I do think their review system is a great tool for agents to build business.  Great reviews = new clients.  However, I had no idea that a disgruntled o...
Ahh, another day in the glamorous life of a Realtor, as described by Juli Vosmik in Scottsdale, AZ.  All we do is open doors and drive around in our Mercedes all day!  This reminds me of the time I had to jump through a basement window to show one of my own listings because the key was stuck.  Si...
I interviewed for a listing last week and I told the seller best approach was that of a builder tear down.   The neighborhood, in the Williamsburg civic association is my own, and I know it well.  The house was an estate and had been vacant for years, needed tons of work and was on a big desirabl...
