Karen Mansour, fellow member on Active Rain was asking what are people doing....I commented and have copied it into an entry here..... I am:  1) Getting new pads (pick them up tomorrow, "going green with them" ~ green ink on light green paper)  I will be throwing pads with a flyer in a bag to the 10-15 properties surrounding REPO listings, soliciting Buyer activity.  2) Had Tshirts made.....and getting ready to send out about 100 of them to past clients...even some of the ones that I haven't spoken with in a long time.  3) Made bookmarks.  There are 4 different ones and added a photo to each one of them.  3 out of the 4 photos I took myself and put a little blurb about the picture....laminated it, punch a hole witha  hole puncher, tie a ribbon at the top, and will be mailing those out w...

This week, on Wednesday, on the Today Show, watch for inspirational and motivational author and coach, Eli Davidson....she's going to be on TV. We were lucky enough at our local Caravan to have her speak earlier this year. She offers "practical" advice to accomplish your goals, stay focused, remove obstacles...in short, I appreciate the motivational coach that she is and has been for me..... If you ever get a chance to meet her, or read her book, I would recommend it.... Go Eli!! BTW, You can find her book on www.Amazon.com "Funky to Fabulous" by Eli Davison

It's important to keep yourselves out there.....I was just blogging today and ran into a client who saw me and they said they were going to tell everyone at their meeting tonight (that they were going to) about their Realtor and how hard I work at keeping my name out there and staying active and in the public eye....and.....wow, it's great to have a place to market ourselves and for free (and our listings)....Thank you ActiveRain.....

How are your sales in this heat?  Southern California has been getting record heat and I love it....just kind of worried a little that people don't want to be out in the heat. I am thinking to change my "showing hours" and advertise that I show homes when it's cooler...LOL Seriously!!  It's worth a shot.  I think I will call it, "Summer Hours". I actually, for some reason, have brainwashed myself from about 18 years ago, that when it rains, I sell homes.  So now, I guess, it's time for another BRAINWASH. Whatever works... Let's cook up some SUMMER SALES AND STAY MOTIVATED. CHEERS AND HERE'S TO MORE SALES FOR US ALL!!

We were fortunate to have Randall Lewis from Lewis Homes speak to our group yesterday @ WEREP. He said alot of different things....mostly that if you're going to buy, be sure it's a SCREAMING DEAL right now...and that he thought pricing should be dropping a little more still in the future....5-10% were his numbers/figures. Also, if you're a Seller, to drop your price down to where it needs to be in order to sell....if they want to sell, that is. Also, that the gas prices will probably help our area, since people will look for more local jobs to save on gas so unemployment should improve.... Buy a New Home...Builders are UNDER SEIGE....and willing to look @ all offers now. One Builder who was in the audience said they've reduced their prices as much as 50% in places like the High Desert/...

Just returned from the CAR Conference in Sacramento last week. It was amazing and I am still overwhelmed at the quality of individuals and professionals who "volunteer" their time to be "Directors" for the State. Thank You to all of those that I met....and I hope to see you again and possibly network together referring each other business and sharing ideas together in the future.  Also, Thank You to networks like Active Rain who provide such a great avenue to Realtors/Professionals, such as myself, to network, exchange ideas, refer, etc.  It's AWESOME. Here are some of my video broadcasts that I just posted on YouTube.com yesterday. As you will see I'm still getting used to this, but appreciate the avenue to spread information so quickly. Have a fantastic day and Father's Day Weekend!! ...

The monthly home sales activity report issued by DataQuick News sparks a flurry of newspaper articles, broadcast commentary and internet discussion. As a snapshot of the housing market, it depicts what transpired last month and compares it to a snapshot taken at the same time a year ago. Like a snapshot taken on vacation, it doesn't tell the whole story. There are so many variables in real estate, it's hard to pin the housing market down. The price of gasoline, jobs lost and found, family issues, personal triumphs and losses - all play a role in our individual housing decisions. Recent sales prices and the number of homes available help buyers gauge the local market. Changing seasons also affect the housing market, which is why DataQuick News compares sales during any month to sales in ...
