  • Is the Goverment Shut Down Affecting the Real Estate Market?

    Posted Under: General Area in Charlotte, Market Conditions in Charlotte, Agent2Agent in Charlotte  |  October 7, 2013 8:59 AM  |  95 views  |  2 comments

    I've heard some local agents say that the government shutdown could affect the real estate market.  I personally have not seen anything different in my business but I know it could impact the ability of lenders to get IRS verification and USDA loans.  Any thoughts?
  • My Business Is Up 60%!

    No kidding...my business is up 60% over last year and it's only June!  So, what's the reason for this increase?  Is it the market, new leads, old leads, or just my awesomeness?  That is a word right?

    I personally think that market conditions are improving in the greater Charlotte area and this has something to do with it.  Also, I have a new lead generation system that has paid off some.  But for the most part, I think it comes down to going back to the basics.  Much of my business comes from referrals from past clients.  I have tried very hard over the past 2 years to reach my past clients in some way several times a year.  It's good to remind people that you are STILL in the business and ready to serve their needs or someone they know. 

    Take care of your clients...no matter what!  And, they will take care of you. 

    I would love to hear what others think.  Please send your comments!
  • Lesson for December: Finish Strong!

    Posted Under: General Area in Charlotte, Market Conditions in Charlotte, Agent2Agent in Charlotte  |  December 1, 2011 11:56 AM  |  521 views  |  No comments
    If I have learned anything about the real estate business in the last 8 years for December it is that you CAN finish strong.  December is a time where you can lay back on your achievements for the last 11 months and take time to enjoy this slower month.  However, for those like me who want to go that extra bit and pave the path for a successful 2012, it's time to be back to work and make it happen this last month of the year.  Follow up on all leads, don't stop those weekly mailings, keep sending out those "thank you" cards, knock on a few doors on the weekends, keep looking for those FSBO's, keep calling past clients for referrals....keep pushing, don't stop, no slacking, push push...PUSH!!!  That's how you finish strong in December.
  • Thanksgiving!

    I am so very thankful for my clients this year.  It's been a tough few years in real estate and this year was a turn around year for me and it was my clients that made that possible.  So THANK YOU!  Looking forward to a strong finish for 2011 and a great 2012!
  • Things picking up!

    Is it me or have home sales really picked up that last few weeks?  I've had quite a few showings for most of my listings and two of them have went under contract.  I know prices are still not turning around in these areas because of where the contract prices have come in at.  But the market seems to have much more activity than it did the last few Novembers.
