Well, things are progressing nicely towards the yard sale this coming weekend. Two friends are going to join us, so at the very least we know we’ll buy some of their stuff and they’ll buy some of ours! That’s how it always works out.
Sent out the press release this a.m. regarding our new status as GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute) to three newspapers and one radio. In addition I sent a letter to the editor of the local newspaper regarding an article in last week’s paper reporting on the decision by the Sylva Town Council to have a 90 day trial period allowing dogs in one of the local parks. I’ll be curious to see if one or both items get printed.
Had a call from an ex-client this morning (lister). She had been a very high maintenance lister, referred herself (licensed Broker in another state). We took a ton of photos, gave a lot of good advice to make the house more sellable and then just two months into the listing agreement pulled the listing to make it a For Sale by Owner. When she called I was afraid she wanted to list the house again. She told me that she’d received no calls on the property and eventually rented the property. Luckily, she wasn’t asking to have the property listed again. One thing I’ve learned from the real estate educational programs is that we do not have to take listings that we don’t want to represent!!! It’s very liberating to know that.
