Not if they are bad or few or not a good representation. It is so easy. Get a decent camera and learn to use it. Take some time to take some photos of your listing. Then take an extra couple minutes to set the picture up (I actually saw one, on line, if you looked close you could see a rat) Some ...
Reading AR this morning, there seem to be a lot of posts and questions about how to get clients. So I thought I would add my two cents, since it has been a long time since I last posted. First of all the question should reall be "how do I get and keep clients" If you are only worried about the ge...
The market for May continued strong with average time on the market declining, the absorption rate declining and prices moving up! A couple numbers are not much changed but that is more of an inventory thing than a change in overall market. How sustainable?? Only time will tell but a valid concer...
My sister-in-law likes to take a lot of time decorating for Christmas (as does me wife and they are both very good at it). This year, she (sister-in-law) did a different twist on the tree decorating their home in East Wenatchee. She started with the usually green faux tree. There were the normal ...

I thought it migh be interesting to share some stories of transactions that went sideways or that had unusual twists... 1. The Closing that Wasn't: I had been an agent just a few months. One of my very first sales and it was time to go to the closing to have my buyers sign the documents. As we sa...
When you reduce sales to the most basic element the answer has to be yes.... fear that someone else will get the item, or something will happen to make it unattainable and greed that we can make money now, or get the best price, or grab off a bargain. I think this is especially true today. At lea...
Over this last weekend I was in Seattle visiting a friend that has a catering business in Seattle. His business is strictly high end and he does zero advertising! Everything is word of mouth and he is booked up well in advance...even during the last few years he was booked when others were trying...
