Weintraub & Wallace received Top Producer Award April 2020. In case you think whoop-dee-do, they always win awards, please consider this: Do you think Tom Brady gets bored winning Super Bowls? Look, I know that Tom has lost a couple as well and there will be comments on this blog about deflated footballs. The fact is, Tom Brady is an amazing athlete and leader. He earns his wins with every moment of his day, on and off the field. The way he eats, trains, studies, thinks. I personally don’t think he, or any top achiever in any other form of business, gets tired of reaching a pinnacle of success.
Selling real estate and law school has come up in my life on a few occasions. While managing the Sacramento and Placer county regions for a previous real estate company, I almost applied to Lincoln Law School. Our risk management attorney, Eric Larsen, rest his soul, had encouraged me to apply. He wrote a letter of recommendation giving me a five-star review to suggest I be grandfathered into the program. Eric was my mentor. He taught me everything I know about real estate law, disclosure, due process and lawsuits, etc. I was so fortunate to work alongside him for almost 10 years.
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.
When is cheating Realtors an upfront disclosure in the home selling process from a seller’s point of view? I had a phone call today from a future seller who had already talked to and chosen a Realtor. So why was he calling our firm to ask me questions, why didn’t he ask his Realtor?
His first questions were about what types of agency did we use when when listing a home. What he wanted to really know was if he could get the home listed and not pay a Realtor under certain circumstance. It got me to thinking about an old boyfriend who told me upfront about potential cheating and he asked questions about how I felt about cheating. I told him I would drop him like a rock in a deep pond! Why go into a relationship with someone devaluing you up front?
As we roll into a very hot spring real estate market, one way to find a home is to seek Sacramento’s hidden inventory “pocket listings.” I did just that when looking in the Boulevard Park area of Midtown Sacramento. A long term client of over 21 years was looking for a home in the area. She had now, of course, become a dear friend. When we were house hunting, it became quickly apparent there were so few homes for sale in this area.
I called an agent in Midtown who works Boulevard Park and he had lived in the area for many years. Mentioned I was looking for something updated about 2400 square feet. There was nothing like this in the MLS. He said he actually had clients who had talked about selling, let me ring them. They were away on vacation in a very exotic place in the world at the time.
