The road to homeownership is so unique that no two individuals have the same when buying or selling real estate. 🏡⚡️
This past month I’ve had to take many different paths in order to accomplish my clients goals. From managing a triple contingency (3 buyers and 3 sellers all linked in a domino effect to individually close their transactions), helping a first time buyer who had multiple rejected offers prior to working with me who finally got in escrow and close, to re-listing and selling a home in 4 days that sat on the market for 90 days previously. -
It all took hard work. When you don’t want to do something it’s often too easy to make excuses. But they’re not a valid reason for bailing out of a commitment. All the above clients had dealt with lack of commitment prior to me jumping in. -
Although the past 3 weeks were chaotic I didn’t make a single excuse. I did the work everyday from problem solving to negotiating to cleaning homes myself to get the job done. 💪🏼
There are only 6 days till we reach the ☠️DEADline of the 🎃 #JnJColoringContest ! -

These Paint Colors Can Help Sell Your Home.
Paint colors can pull some pretty surprising numbers when selling your home. According to an analysis by Zillow, a $6,000 premium has been placed on homes with black front doors, periwinkle blue bathrooms, and tuxedo kitchen cabinets. That’s a pretty excellent return on investment, considering the cost of a can of paint.
Colors that Sell & Those That Don’t.
Neutral colors are still popular among buyers (and sellers) and painting your living room a light taupe might see a nearly $3,000 increase in price, while red in your kitchen can take over $2,000 from your bottom line.
The surprising color winners are periwinkle bathrooms that can pull in over $2,700, and a jet black to charcoal front door might mean more than $6,000 in unexpected value.
Wondering what other surprising value might be hiding in your home? Reach out to see what your home is worth right now.

When people ask us how they can start their real estate journey💰with little or no money, we always advise them to start with Real Estate 🏡🏘. Let’s talk about a few things we can do to start.
Benefits of Investing in Small Multifamily Properties
You can finance a multifamily property for as little as 3.5% down on a FHA loan. This is, by far, the lowest widely available down payment for any kind of investment real estate. #2 Is Amazing Benefit Guys You Can Use Future Rental Income to Qualify
One of the beauties of the multifamily starter home strategy is that you will begin collecting rent checks as soon as you own the property and can use them to subsidize or pay off the mortgage every month. The bank will allow you to use a portion of that prospective income to help you qualify on paper by increasing your gross effective income..... Friends, this will allow you to qualify for an even higher recurring mortgage payment and ultimately, a larger investment.
These are the bonus guys for building wealth with Multi family as your first Real Estate Investment, when done right, it consistently generates a strong cash flow every month.
These first time home buyers got a great deal in Rocklin! $4000 closing cost credit, $4000 in pest repair work, and a brand new roof over the garage. 🏠Couldn’t be happier for this amazing young family! Grateful to receive such a great review. 😃
“There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it.
Very few people or companies can clearly articulate WHY they do WHAT they do. By WHY I mean your purpose, cause or belief - WHY does your company exist? WHY do you get out of bed every morning? And WHY should anyone care?
People don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it.
We are drawn to leaders and organizations that are good at communicating what they believe. Their ability to make us feel like we belong, to make us feel special, safe and not alone is part of what gives them the ability to inspire us.
For values or guiding principles to be truly effective they have to be verbs. It’s not “integrity,” it’s “always do the right thing.” It’s not “innovation,” it’s “look at the problem from a different angle.” Articulating our values as verbs gives us a clear idea - we have a clear idea of how to act in any situation.
Happy employees ensure happy customers. And happy customers ensure happy shareholders—in that order.
Leading is not the same as being the leader. Being the leader means you hold the highest rank, either by earning it, good fortune or navigating internal politics. Leading, however, means that others willingly follow you—not because they have to, not because they are paid to, but because they want to.
You don’t hire for skills, you hire for attitude. You can always teach skills.
Great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them. People are either motivated or they are not. Unless you give motivated people something to believe in, something bigger than their job to work toward, they will motivate themselves to find a new job and you’ll be stuck with whoever’s left.
Trust is maintained when values and beliefs are actively managed. If companies do not actively work to keep clarity, discipline and consistency in balance, then trust starts to break down.
All organizations start with WHY, but only the great ones keep their WHY clear year after year.” @simonsinek
I love the people I work with and I love all my clients who CHOOSE to let me help them and their families every single day.
The biggest #fail I notice in #realtorcontent strategy is consistency. Stay with it - this is a long term game. 💯

This historic Colonial sits on more than 60 acres of Connecticut farmland. That’s enough space to wander and admire the colorful leaves that dust the ground (there’s also room on the porch if sipping a pumpkin-spiced something is more your speed). Tap the link in our bio for more.

Up, up and away in the forests of northern Idaho, there’s a towering treetop cabin with panoramic views and an unexpected history — it used to be a fire lookout. Now, its 360-degree windows are used for spotting red-hot sunsets and burning stars. Tap the link in our bio for more.
Talk about waterfront property. Anchored in the heart of Seattle, this floating home has a dock instead of a deck, sits in a canal instead of a cul-de-sac and looks out on a yard that never, ever needs to be cut. Tap the link in our bio for more.

I am thoroughly enjoying basking in this beautiful fall September weather! BUT- I’m always thinking ahead. I signed up my little man for snowboard lessons again at @skiwhitefish and started daydreaming of snowy days ahead. Who wants to come play in the snow at the treehouse? Christmas is even still available. I was hesitant to even mention that cause part of me just wants to keep it all to myself...but the whole reason we created this treehouse utopia was to share the goodness with adventurers like YOU! Tag a friend that needs a winter retreat! Have a great start to your week.

Depending on the Price, You’re Going to Need Advice ☝🏼
To understand today’s complex real estate market, it is critical to have a local, trusted advisor on your side – for more reasons than you may think
In real estate today, there are essentially three different price points in the market: the starter-home market, the middle-home market, and the premium or luxury market. Each one is unique, and depending on the city, the price point in these categories will vary. Let’s explore what you need to know about each of these tiers
Starter-Home Market: This market varies by price, and these homes are typically purchased by first-time home buyers or investors looking to flip them for a profit. Across the country, homes in this space currently have less than 6 months of inventory for sale. That means there aren’t enough homes on the lower end of the market for the number of people who want to buy them. A low supply like this generally increases competition, drives bidding wars, and sets up an environment where homes sell above the listing price
Middle-Home Market: “the move-up market.” Typically, the buyer in this market is moving up to a larger, more custom home with more features, all coming at a higher price. Across the country, this market is looking more balanced than the lower end of the market, meaning it has closer to a 6-month supply of inventory for sale. This market is more neutral, but leaning towards a seller’s market
Premium & Luxury Home Market: This is the top end of the market with larger homes that have even more custom features and upgrades. Nationwide, this market is growing in the number of homes for sale
Bottom Line - Depending on the segment of the market and the price point you’re looking at, you’re going to need the advice of a true local market expert. Let's get together to help you navigate the home-buying or selling process in this market today! 📲
