Need a quick dose of inspiration? Get outside and be in awe of nature.

Do you live an inspired life? For many of us, we become so caught up in the small activities of our daily lives that we fail to look at the bigger picture and take a moment to become inspired by a beautiful sunset or a good ‘underdog’ story or even having a worthy goal. If you’re unsure whether or not you’re living an inspired life, ask:

Guiding your clients through the real estate process is a great way to show excellent service.

Most sellers only sell a few homes in their whole lifetime so it’s no wonder that they may have questions about the process when they decide to list.

After all, when they listed their last home, newspapers were doing well, the Internet was in its infancy and open houses were all the rage. The current real estate process looks much different: many newspapers are on life support, the Internet gives us access to a huge amount of information and, while open houses are still held, they’re not the most efficient use of time and energy. Here’s how to guide your sellers through the changing landscape of real estate. Continue reading
