Realtor Tips: Using Testimonials and References

real estate testimonials, marty snyder references, marty snyder real estate agentI remember first starting out in real estate, working someone else's phones, trying to land a client whenever possible and doing all I could to gain experience. Having been a Realtor here in SW Ohio now since 2006 and coming up on a full decade of experience working Cincinnati to Dayton I think it's safe to say I've learned a few things about growing my business.

Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly

selling a home quickly, sell my home fast, selling a homeWhether you are selling your home during the peak home buying season or not, following these simple Realtor tips can help you sell your home quickly, which you know is every seller’s dream. If you're a Realtor working with a seller that's more "under-the-gun", these will help them successfully sell sooner, rather than later.

1. Make a good first impression. Take the time upfront to create some curb appeal. If prospective buyers drive by and don’t like what they see on the outside, they aren’t likely to take the time to look at the inside. Make sure your lawn is well maintained, plant some flowers, paint the fence, replace the mailbox--whatever it takes to give the best possible first impression.

Working With Low Dollar Buyers - Golden Opportunities

What a busy week! I wanted to take time out though and share some insights, Realtor tips and business strategy to help you grow your business (and provide some insights for buyers who are shopping low dollar properties for a single family home).

Low Dollar Buyers become High Dollar Buyers

Everyone has to start somewhere, right? Greg Hancock, my business partner, told me a long time ago, help people when they're just starting out and stay true to them, follow up with and stay in touch with them and you'll become their Realtor for life. This leads to increasing business with a growing pool of clients that refer and buy again and the average dollar tag of homes you work with goes up over the

What does Greg Hancock Do? Help Others Succeed

real estate leads, real estate internet leads, succeeding at real estateI get asked frequently by new and tenured agents and also a ton of real estate related professionals what it is I do. I love it when people ask questions, but I get asked this question so frequently, I decided I'd do a blog post about it so I can send originators of this query a link.

First, I've been at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices - Professional Realty a couple of years now and I absolutely love what I do and wear many hats that are all related to the same goals, and that's helping others succeed.


"I'm not succeeding unless I'm helping others succeed"

It makes me both sad and angry when I see a brand-new or relatively new agent failing at working real estate, going through hard times

R.O.C.K.I.N.G Real Estate Agents - I is for Investigative

good real estate agents, real estate agents in west chesterHello everyone, had enough rain? Good grief! Well, back again to discuss another characteristic of good real estate agents; investigative.

Working with a Realtor is sort of like working with a private investigator and not all are of equal skill and passion. But if you're going to buy a home, there's a lot of investigating to do.

You, as a buyer or seller should really investigate the agent you're thinking of working with, so, investigation starts with you.

A real estate agent should begin their investigation with the buyer or seller and I'd like to talk about this from both vantages.

Investigative for Buyers and Sellers

Starting with a buyer (and this actually helps sellers) an

R.O.C.K.I.N.G Real Estate Agents - K is for Knowledgeable

real estate agents in cincinnati, cincinnati real estate agentsHiya all, back from trekking back forth across Ohio to meet with agents and discuss proper care of referrals and clients.

Had an absolutely wonderful and relaxing stay again at Donna's Premiere Lodging in Berlin, Ohio out in Amish Country; had to stock up on spices and cheeses again.

Love that place, the chalets, log cabins and service are amazing and very romantic. Check out Donna's if you ever get the chance, you won't be disappointed.

Well, among other real estate agent characteristics that are good for business and great for clients, we discussed knowledge.

I'd like to preface this with the fact that just because an agent is newer to the industry, doesn't mean they can't serve

Vacation Fantasies Consume Us 

At the onset of warm weather the first thought that consumes all adult working individuals is a vacation. Nothing is more temping than the thought of a getaway complete with sandy beaches, roaring waves or backpacking through gorgeous mountains.

Summer on the HorizonIf you are lucky enough to be an entrepreneur, the typical mental debate of coordinating your holiday with co-workers or keeping a tally of your remaining number of vacation days does not exist.  It seems as if, to the rest of society, we can be as free as the wind.

The life of an entrepreneur in the summer varies as much as our individual lives, but, for the majority of us the work life balance becomes a struggle. Many different factors play a part in our distraction and

R.O.C.K.I.N.G Real Estate Agents - C is for Cautious

dayton real estate agents, good real estate agentsEver landed in a situation where you look back and earnestly wished someone had enlightened you before you took action? 

Hello, back after making the rounds in Ohio coaching our select team of real estate agents on topics of excellence. R.O.C.K.I.N.G values among other key factors of what being an excellent Realtor were discussed and now we've come to part four; caution.

Very often, a home buyer new to the process (or seller) doesn't know what to watch out for, and you'll find there are situations where caution can save time and money or hedge against loss and heartache.

Do you find your real estate agent cautions you, or are they simply chasing a commission?
