Passionate about helping others…buyers, sellers, new agents

The quote in this photo has always been a favorite since I wrote my high school senior report on Henry David Thoreau. (Yes, I remember. But don’t ask what happenunnamed.jpged last month! LOL) I’m sharing this quote for two ladies who are working hard to get their career where they want it to be AND because it’s a favorite quote of mine.

Sometimes along the path of life, both personally and professionally, we can feel stuck, limited or not where we are meant to be. Sometimes it just takes time.

Though I was blessed to work for a great company while I was a single Mom all those years and needed a steady paycheck & benefits, there were a few folks I encountered over the years who “clipped my wings” so to say, but the two executives I worked for the longest were amazing cheerleaders and I was blessed to learn from the best.  I could only wish my health and my life had been better during those years. However, one of the best things about finally having life where it needs to be (health, happiness and home) and being in the career position I have always wanted to be in is the lack of restraints of having been told “No, you can’t do that, it’s not in your job duties.” Or “No, you can’t succeed at that because of [this or that]” and other chains felt from Corporate America over the years.

When one is living the life they imagined and doing what they are truly passionate about, the sky is the limit.  I had a great mentor once I made the move to Exit Realty, especially to Exit Realty Associates and I could not be more thankful.  I am working to be as good of a mentor to others as she has been to me.  It’s just another aspect of me loving to help others!  Face it…life isn’t about me, it’s about those around me and that is how I truly hope to live out the rest of my days…with the daily motivation that it’s all about those around me, those I come in contact with and perhaps, even those whom I have yet to meet!

Besides helping clients find a home and getting to hand them the keys, I absolutely LOVE helping others get started and mentoring others just starting out. I have been on cloud nine after seeing the joy, excitement and energy stemming from a new agent who has been working hard to make it happen and has recently had her first closing and has another one this month!  Mentoring a truly bright, energetic and motivated individual is an amazing experience. (Chris and Ralph would be proud.)

Offering Over List Price

Please see the article link below.  I feel this is a very good read… Especially since we are in a seller’s market right  now.
 Offer writing strategies or thought  processes may need to vary a bit when we find ourselves in a seller’s market vs a buyers market. Especially as competitive as ours has been recently.
I have had buyers who recently found themselves in a multiple offer situation.  I counseled them on much of what this article mentions (not using the accelerated clause, as I agree it can often cause a buyer to pay too much). I always run detailed comps on a house before having my buyers sign an offer, that way they know they are offering a good price, not over paying, and we know we are making an educated offer in hopes of avoiding appraisal issues.  We look at the net to the seller. If you offer list price but then ask the seller to pay all of your closing costs and leave items not normally left with the purchase of this home, it’s not truly offering them list price and most likely won’t put your offer at the top- not in today’s strong seller’s market.  Each case is different.  You need a professional who will do the research for you and help you make a smart offer, an educated offer.
I would be honored to assist you in finding your next home.  Please contact me today.
