Rebuild with Kindness

What an incredible year 2020 has been. I know many of you have confided in me about your personal struggles and how Covid has affected your business and your life.  You have been forced to learn many new skills this year including how to zoom while juggling kids at home and barking dogs.  (Personally, I […]

Automate Your Business for the Holidays

Every year in mid-November I hear the same complaint from agents. They come to me and say: “Denise, everything is slowing down. I feel like there’s no point to doing anything right now. So I think I’ll just ramp things down and plan next year.” While it’s a good idea to plan next year, it […]

Stay Focused on the Facts (Not Politics)

I have to weigh in on what’s going on with the election. Probably by the time you read this, we will know who the President will be. But right now, I have clients that are panicking about how the election uncertainty is going to affect them. I want to remind them and you that life […]

Professional Texting Etiquette

Many agents have asked me about proper and professional texting etiquette in our modern world. Texting can be a great way to send a quick message on the go, but you have to use it appropriately. First of all, if you’re texting someone and that person isn’t responding immediately, you need to remember they may […]

Reduce the Pressure & Increase the Patience

I have been talking to many of my clients recently who have expressed that they are feeling overwhelmed from Covid and just wished everything could go back to the way it was. They do not feel like themselves, and their business doesn’t feel like it used to which is causing them great distress. The last […]

The Power of One

This week I want to talk about efficiency and getting things done. I know that this sounds like such an elementary topic, but I hear this from my clients all the time! They are struggling to get something done, but they are getting so distracted that they are putting too many things to do on […]

Don’t Panic About Foreclosures

Today, I’m going to tackle foreclosures, forbearance, and what’s ahead for anyone whose clients – or they themselves- have gotten into a little hot water with their mortgage because of what’s happening with Covid. First and foremost, I want to go back ten to thirteen years. The last time that we were in this kind […]

Busy Holiday Season on the Horizon

I know we’re only in September, and just coming into October, but I cannot tell you how many phone calls I’ve received asking if October, November, and December will be a good time to sell a house. During a normal year, we see a predictable decline in inventory and in active buyers. But this year, […]

Agreements Prevent Disagreements

A big part of a real estate professional’s job is to help the buyers and sellers navigate agreements, contracts, and miscellaneous contractual addendums. I have experienced more real estate professionals’ personal contract-conflicts in the past six months than I have seen in the past 5 years. Is it because of Covid? Is it that agents […]
