Best Sacramento Real Estate Agent
In support of a cure for cancer, today’s blog comes to you from our exclusive buyer’s agent, Josh Almolsch:
Lately, I’ve begun to consider that inconvenience is a necessity. I am not saying that helping people is inconvenient. No way. I think the purpose of life is to support and serve each other. An excellent way to detect whether doing something is worthwhile is to be in touch with your “Inconvenience Meter.” Some of us tend to build walls around ourselves, including putting on blinders and grinding onto finish the next goal in front of us as a way to keep developing our lives; thus, reaching our goals. I personally do anyway.
Our seller’s market is still here. For the fourth straight consecutive month, the pending sales are on the rise, confirming that Sacramento Real Estate is a continuing seller’s market. The first quarter shows closed sales increasing every month.
What does this mean for the Sacramento housing market? Does it mean Sacramento real estate is a continuing seller’s market? We are experiencing continuing price increases, based on high demand and housing shortages. Each neighborhood can be a bit different as this is the greater Sacramento county averages.
Here is why selling Sacramento real estate isn’t a job. Business happens night and day, 7 days a week. There are no set work schedules for a successful Sacramento Realtor. Many of our clients, though, typically work an 8 – 5 schedule. This means meetings and telephone conversations with clients often happen on weekends and evenings.
There are daily tasks that do happen throughout the 8 – 5 time frame. Agents deal with bankers, title companies, appraisers, and inspectors communicating with us and scheduling appointments during typical workdays. Further, showings of listings are happening 7 days a week, 10+ hours a day.
Most of the top agents in Sacramento tend to receive 5-star reviews, but some reviews exceed even 5-stars. Some reviews are simply coming up roses every single time.
Going on appointments is what a busy Sacramento Realtor does; however, after all is said and done, smelling like a real estate rose is no easy task at the end of each day. (This photo was taken in my rose garden.)
Talking to new people every day is the life of a listing agent. Some people will not ever turn into clients, some may take years, some things just happen in their life and they don’t list. The key to all this is to recognize that we are like the rose in this photo, vibrant, full of life, and open to all who want to linger near us.
Buying another computer at Best Buy has turned into quite a bit of work. This started Tuesday when I took my Dell XPS into the Geek Squad at Best Buy. I dropped it off to check the fan as it was not turning on. They said a few days and I would know the scope of work and have an estimate. Wednesday I received a call that it is not the fan and needed to be sent out as the motherboard was not functioning. Of course, I could not have my computer be out of service that long.
The solution, I decided to buy another computer. A helpful sales clerk walked me around to look at what was in stock. There was a computer that would work, so I bought it on the spot. Then a tech support package was needed so the data could be transferred to the new computer. Tonight another trip back to Best Buy to pick up the new computer! Three trips later and now we are putting the computer up and installing a 40-inch monitor.
