Four Tips For Updating Your Bio in 2021

       

When's the last time you updated your bio and refreshed your overall brand?

Remember the brand that you are selling is YOU. And you need to refresh your brand at least once a year. You might hate getting your picture taken, but you need a new one every year. And I'm not just talking about a new headshot. You also need to hire a professional photographer to do an entire photo spread for you.

On top of that, you need to update your bio. The best bios that will drive sales your way include the following four things:

  1. They're timely
  2. They're relevant
  3. They include the latest and greatest things happening in your life that help you connect with people in a real way
  4. And they include any awards you've received or accomplishments you've achieved

Your #1 goal with your bio is to create an emotional connection with people. So that when they read about you, they can easily decide that they want to work with you.

3 Reasons Why Top Economists Predict a Wave of New Listings are Coming

       

One question we always receive as REALTORS is - What's going to happen next? What's the crystal ball for where prices are going over the next 12 months? 

According to the NAR, Zelman, Realtor.com, Freddie Mac, CoreLogic, Fannie Mae and the Mortgage Bankers Association, the average of all those top industry insiders and economists within those groups, their prediction for the next 12 months is that we're going to see appreciation at 3.9%. You might think that sounds low. After all we just went through a year where we had double digit appreciation and in many markets we saw appreciation as high as 15-16% .

The reason is I think those economists know something - When you have a low supply and high demand, what happens? Prices go up. When supply increases, it puts pressure on...

What do you do with a disloyal client?

 

 

What do you do with a disloyal client?

Barbara Brown an amazing principal broker told me a story that can help all of us. It's a story of forgiveness. She had a client that she had worked with for years, be disloyal and list their house with another agent. It hurts but we have all had it happen.

When the holiday season came around, she said to herself - Should I delete these people off my database list and not send them a holiday card or should I keep them on my list?

She struggled with the decision and thought about it for a long time. Finally she decided to take the high road keep and them in her database. She sent them her traditional Holiday Card.

Guess what happened?

Those disloyal clients circled all the way back. Their listing didn't sell and they called Barbara to come list the property. Of course Barbara had to ask the question - Why didn't you call me the first time?

Turns out in their previous transaction with Barbara there had been some little rub around closing...

The Best Time in History to Trade Up (Script)

If you are looking for a way to move sellers off the fence and unlock more inventory try using the Trade Up Script!

As buyer demand continues to surge our biggest challenge is finding quality listings. Using the Trade Up Script you can not only secure more listings you can also add more buyers to your pipeline (every seller becomes a buyer!)

“With interest rates hitting 50-year lows over the past 6 weeks (in the low 3% range) many homeowners are trading up to their dream home with very little change in their payment. The reason is if you are paying more than 4% on your current home and we can help you buy your next home at closer to 3% - that difference - gives you way more buying power. You can get that extra bedroom, the shop you always wanted, your dream kitchen, or even a pool. Seriously this is an amazing time to buy a home. Give me a call today to set up your dream home search.”
