How to choose an expert Atlanta short sale agent

Elva Branson-Lee “Short sales are my specialty. Most agents will shy away from short sales because they are very complicated transactions, requiring a lot more work than a normal equity sale, and fraught with opportunities for unexpected setbacks and stress.”We thrive on Short Sales too!Right on target – and – reblog! When Atlanta area homeowners need to move but feel they cannot because they are upside-down in their mortgage, that’s when it is time for some good old-fashioned straight-talk and some new-fashioned expertise. If you are a seller in this unfortunate and uncomfortable situation, you may be able to sell...

My Value Proposition

Jan Green “Just yesterday at a listing appointment, a potential seller told me I will get her listing because I asked what was important to her first. “Once again demonstrating the critical importance of “listening” – well done!Right on target – and – re-blog! Most of us in real estate work to separate ourselves from others by offering unique items for our “Value Proposition.”   To stand out from others might include extra services or it might just be the person that we are and how we relate to others.  My methods are similar but there are some differences, maybe, from others. ...

Some Thoughts on Our Value Proposition

Dick Greenberg “we see our marketing duties as professionalism in effective communication. Understanding markets and those whose acts drive the market’s behavior, utilizing state of the art technology, employing honest but compelling presentation techniques”Right on target – and – re-blog! One of the main points of our “value proposition” is that we never use the phrase “value proposition” – either verbally, in written marketing materials, or even in our thoughts.

How to Build Muscle – Or a Simple Shock Routine

When we first started bodybuilding, more years ago than I care to admit, I admittedly over trained – by a ton. But, because I was very young and bodybuilding was new, I grew anyway. Of course, my gains stalled-as do most bodybuilders – as they progress from a beginning bodybuilder to a more advanced one. That is just the way it goes – if it did not, most of us would be over three-hundred pounds of ripped muscle. I guess we can all dream! Seriously, though, sometimes, you need to shock your muscles into new growth, and what follows is just that – a shock routine. The routine is broken up into two workouts, one is focused on pure power movements and the other, is focused on getting the largest pump possible. Ideally, the first workout should be done early in the morning, and the second one should be done late in the day, to allow the maximum amount of recovery between the workouts. I realize that for some people this might not be possible, so just do the best you can. NOTE: Because this routine is advanced, I would recommend that you wait until you have at least two years of solid workouts under your belt before you try the routine you will find below. Lastly, I picked chest for this article but you can use this approach...

Attention Home Sellers! Price it right the first time if you want to sell quickly.

Gita Bantwal “If you do manage to get a buyer to make an offer at a price that is too high , the home may not appraise and the lender may not finance it. By the time the appraisal is done you will have lost valuable time if the buyer backs out when the house does not appraise.”Right on target – and – re-blog!! There is a shortage of inventory in some markets and in some subdivisions in particular. Many agents have buyers looking to buy in some of these communities. But buyer agents are familiar with prices in the...
