4 Items YOU Expect when Interviewing a Real Estate Agent to Sell a Home or Property.When you're interviewing a real estate broker to sell your home property you at bare minimum should expect the 4 following things. 1. Above average communication. In a shifting market timely communication will be critical to a successful sale, 2. A robust marketing plan that includes professional photos, drone video, Matterport or other VR videos along with a robust social media marketing campaign, 3. You should expect open houses. At least for the first weekend and every other weekend till the home sells. 4. Brokers opens.

We're starting to receive some positive, and some negative, feedback across the socials so I made a quick video stemming from a recent interaction - watch below.One piece of feedback that sparked a past video came from a Facebook message just saying "thank you" and that they're learning a lot from these easy to follow real estate shorts.While the videos usually require 15 or so takes to make a one minute video I'm happy with, the videos are garnering a steady stream of views, likes, and driving subscriptions / follows.

The next video in our series How to Build a Shop in Snohomish County is out and we decided to focus on receiving a As-Built from the Department of Health and locating the property's drainfield as to avoid getting a permit denied based on an improper encroachment.

Out of 1,700 real estate agents and teams under the Ben Kinney Brokerages of Keller Williams, we were #14 in total homes sold in 2021.We are very proud of our achievement because we are a small team. We don't have admin staff, we don't have just buyer's agents, we don't have just listing agents. We have Mickie, Toby, & Tracy in 2021. Tracy has relocated to Spokane ☹️ yet we're happy for in her new adventure with Kelly Right RE of Spokane LLC.Looking forward, we are excited to have added Casey Stivers to the team and having a successful 2022!In addition, Toby was #10 Team Agent by Units Across all Ben Kinney Brokerages Locations in 2021. Have to be proud of that!!!Ok, the self pat-on-the-back is over 😀

I starting a new series on Shops in Snohomish County and more specifically How To Build a Shop in Snohomish County. You might ask why this series is important. My clients as well as our area, shops are highly desirable and people want a nice covered space for projects, storage, and even work. So this series is aimed at answer questions Snohomish County residents may have about the process - design, permitting, and construction. Thanks for tuning and we'll see in later videos.Also, don't forget to ask your questions in the comments or send me an email at toby@barnettassociates.net.

Has anyone used Doodly to create videos? What is Doodly? It is a software program used to create whiteboard videos. Doodly has many different scense, props, people, and more to work into a video's design.I bought the software nearly a year ago and finally, like finally, created at video which focused on relocation. I chose relocation since that topic can be shorter than some other topics and easiers to create.Interested in a bit of feedback and see if anyone else is using it and if so, how?

Christmas are beautiful and smell great in a home. For my family, we really like the whole aspect of real trees. From reserving the trees early, cutting and setting them in the home, decorating, and the distinct fragrance. The downside of real trees is keeping them alive and preventing fire danger. According to the National Fire Protection Association [Source]: Between 2013-2017, U.S. fire departments responded to an average 160 home fires that started with Christmas trees per year. These fires caused an average of three deaths, 15 injuries, and $10 million in direct property damage annually. On average, one of every 52 reported home fires that began with a Christmas tree resulted in a death, compared to an average of one death per 135 total reported home fires.
