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 […]

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.

Ask Denise: Keeping a Fresh Pace

Q: “Denise, I know I am not the only one having a weird year. Spring is usually my busiest time and while I am lucky to have had a steady stream of transactions, due to COVID, overall my production is down. I am not concerned about the financial side because I have some other transactions […]

Ask Denise: Cautious Celebration

Q: “Denise, our state is entering into a new opening-up phase and I had a crazy idea about sending out a celebratory postcard – like a Happy New Year card but to welcome our new phase and include a few facts on the back about what they can expect for real estate – such as […]

Ask Denise: Rebellious Clients

Q: “Denise, I have been working with a buyer couple during COVID. In our area, we have a rule that only myself and one other person can be viewing a home at one time. The other person has to stay in the car. However, the husband has been sneaking in when I am touring with […]

Ask Denise: Maintaining Momentum

Q: “Denise, I have been keeping my chin up with this whole COVID situation but most of my potential clients have decided to wait. I have kept them up on the MLS stats, have let them know about our local MLS protocols regarding showings, and all five of them, some buyers and some sellers, all […]
