Can A Realtor Have A Felony Record?

Can A Realtor Have A Felony Record?

Can a Realtor have a felony record? Well, there’s one way to find out you can go to this link at Dept of Real Estate, DRE. You fill out a name or a license #. http://www2.dre.ca.gov/PublicASP/pplinfo.asp

When we receive an offer on a property, I always check the license number on the DRE site. I can make sure they have a license that is valid without any disciplinary issues or suspensions. If there are court records they are attached. Then the next step is MLS online to look up a buyer’s agent production numbers. It is important to know is this a newer agent and or do they have enough transactions completed to know what they are doing. read more

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How to have a new smile in one day? Well, when we sell a house in Sacramento, the seller has a huge smile, but that’s not the smile I’m referring to. While watching a TV show on botched cosmetic surgery, I saw a segment on cosmetic dentistry. What was mind-blowing was a gentleman featured who had been through several dental surgeries gone wrong. One of several issues, his dental implants were not screwed into the bone; he sought answers in the UK.

The amazing surgeons, doctors Anthony and Michael Zabutz of the Smile In A Day Dental Centers, are brothers. They are located in Petersborough and Folkstone, UK. The first surgeon did the demolition of the patient’s existing teeth and the other installed the new teeth. In under 12 hours, this patient had a new smile in one day. It was amazing to watch. I can’t imagine what it costs, but the patient walked out with a new set of uppers and lowers set in permanently using titanium screws. read more

Rural Life With a mouse Always Keeps it Interesting

Rural life with a mouse always keeps it interesting. Everyone has their mouse catching stories, from humor to sheer yuck! So my sister — unable to have an indoor cat to do mouse patrol because she’s extremely allergic — has tried various methods with extreme results. In her last home, someone in the neighborhood had used rodent poison and she ended up with one dead mouse decaying in a wall with a horrible smell. Not sure which wall, it became a hit and miss to locate and eradicate the corpse. Kind of like whack-a-mole. read more

How Much Time Should A Realtor Spend Meeting with Clients?

How Much Time Should A Realtor Spend Meeting with Clients?

How much time should a Realtor spend meeting with clients? It depends. At the first meeting, I spend as much time as they need. That can be an hour to 4 or 5 hours on the first meeting. Time spent is based on the clients’ need to feel comfortable and confident in the person they are hiring. Sometimes clients need to spend more time getting to know their Realtor, especially at the first meeting.

I met the nicest people this weekend who had previously worked with our team. This was the first time we met. Together, we walked their piece of rural real estate. It was such an interesting piece of property. There were many beautiful oak trees. This amazing pomegranate tree was just covered with fruit. We picked some fruit together and sat in the shade looking onto the property. There were so many wild turkeys about, too. What a glorious afternoon. read more
