We use over at our company and have since we started. The software is awesome. Their new 3D virtual tour system that's coming out is cutting edge and they're always making pretty slick updates for us to take to market. Would never use anyone else. Tour hosting is only ten bucks plus they send us lots of jobs from their national accounts! ... more

HI Greg... if you have a first time buyer, and they qualify, there is a fabulous federal tax credit available here in Sonoma County. It could save them a substantial amount on their taxes annually.

I would be delighted to tell you more about it, so please feel free to call.

Merry Christmas!

I got my first basic courses at the Junior College at night. The cost is reasonable and the teachers were great. Some classes are online, but I would recommend that if you take any of the difficult classes like the appraisal ones, take them in person in class so you can ask questions and have a real lecture besides reading the book. The most important thing I did though was to order the special video review just before the licensing exam. My other recommendation, is that when you are reading your textbooks, underline and highlight the important facts and dates, because you will have to eventually review for the licensing tests, and it is so much easier to be able to go through each textbook and review what you already highlighted.
Good Luck, Terry Bell, CPS Real Estate, Santa Rosa, CA

I have been with Trulia since July 07?

At least 4 closed deals all out of state buyers. Conventional or Cash.

Currently I am working with a buyer in NY and one in LA, ( So cool, one on each coast ) that found me on trulia.
In addition I have a Investor from Colorado, who found me from an answer that was at least a year old. These three found me in November alone. The Investor wants to fix & flip, with a 30% profit in 30 days.
Hey I`m a Realtor not a magician.

One listing appointment, out of state owner, went nowhere.

Tons of leads / Contacts

I have spoken with several Realtors ( Chicago, NJ, NY, CA ) who have closed a lot more from Trulia than me.

Stay honest ( transparent ) in your answers. Keep it that way when you take the relationship offline.

BTW, I actually feel bad because I didn`t buy the trulia "pro" package....Cheap ba$tard.

Countless laughs.

We cover for each other so it's a mutual exchange and usually give a gift from our travels. I'd consider a 25% referral fee if it was a considerable amount of coverage. I would discuss it prior to vacation. Have a great trip! Business always get's better when you go away! ... more

Hi Mike, I do not know about them but would be interested in what you find out. I tend to stear far far away from them. Sure with the lenders holding all the short sale mortgages would figure out a steamlined process for the owners of these homes. ... more
