What's the Hook When You Hire a Real Estate Agent?

Fri, Sep 29th 2023 9:33 am by Samantha Havens Around Town

*** A new listing hits the market and you're dying to see it. ***

*** You're moving for a new job so you must sell your current home while looking for a new one. ***

*** You're ready to upsize or downsize and want to start searching what properties are currently available. ***

A personal recommendation from a family member, friend or neighbor may get you started but once you actually meet an agent what convinces you they will do the job...or not?

Customer Service Matters!

Thu, Sep 28th 2023 10:30 am by Samantha Havens Around Town

That great new pair of jeans, a fab piece of furniture, or maybe just a routine Amazon re-order of your favorite breakfast bar.... Whatever it is, the anticipation of your online delivery never gets old.  But, what about the feeling you get when the shipment date comes and goes with nothing left at your doorstop?  Say it isn't so.   Of course delays occur, items get lost, schedules change.  But here's what can make the difference - a little secret weapon that shouldn't be so secret...... ⇓⇓⇓

It transcends every industry.  That's where I come in.  Customer Service is not an optional add-on.   It's expected, and for good reason.

Buyers - What's Important to YOU?

Thu, Feb 21st 2019 3:30 pm by Samantha Havens Around Town

Today's current real estate market still leans toward a favorable seller's market meaning, there is not an overload of inventory out there for buyers to choose from thus giving sellers a slight advantage when selling their homes.

But, not to worry!  Thanks to the wealth of online information available to buyers coupled with your agent's expertise and advise, buyers can expect to negotiate a mutually acceptable deal that allows them to walk away with the house they want. 

The question is:

*What DO you want? 

*What is most important thing/s you search for when shopping for homes? 

Obviously you will have already narrowed down an area based on personal preference, school zones, ...

Are Dining Rooms a Thing of the Past?

Wed, Jun 17th 2015 9:43 am by Samantha Havens Around Town

Trends come and go but it seems that this one has been emerging for quite some time and people seem to really like it…. gone are the days of formal dining rooms!

For most, the traditional dining room is rarely used and therefore becomes wasted space in your home or a drop off for more clutter.  Is it really necessary to dedicate precious square footage for a room you might use once or twice a year when families gather for holidays?  What's your take?  Would you rather use this space for something more meaningful in your everyday life?

Click below to see what some are doing to decorate "around" the traditional dining room space….
