on Your First Home

First Time Home Buyers need to take advantage of the current market. As Gary Keller notes in this book, there is never a wrong time to buy the right house. As a Realtor, I’ve given this book out as gifts to our first time home buyers. They’ve really appreciated the great stories and helpful information. The book is packed full of information. I’ve found that my clients that read the book come into the process more prepared. Your First Home is a great tool to attract new buyers. Agents can offer the book as a gift and they’ll be giving something of tremendous value and their customers will appreciate it.

Green Your Home is just that: a step-by-step guide that empowers consumers to make home improvement choices that suit their needs, priorities and budgets. Specific strategies and easy-to-implement action items make this an important resource for today’s homeowners as well as for future generations.

on Soci@l

Soci@l is an amazing workbook full of secrets about how to find success in the real estate and mortgage business via the Internet and social media. It forces me to think about what I’m doing on social media and ensure I’m not just flitting from topic to topic as the whim hits me, but ensuring I’m blogging, commenting, tweeting, etc. in an organized systematic fashion each day.
