I’m locking myself in my bathroom until the Wash and Brush Up Co from the Wizard of Oz shows up. I’ve been busy, two new listings since I was last on here (I know, the shame–but there’s everywhere else on the ‘net), a new buyer or three and an additional listing hopefully hitting before the end of the week so I will keep ya posted on that (just off of Western, 4/2 one car garage, wood burning fireplace in the den, four sided brick) and I head out of town soon for the Century 21 of the Carolinas Sales Rally.
So, what’s a Rally? It’s a great chance once/twice a year to meet up with industry peers, swap war stories (naturally) and also pointers of what is working both new and old school in their communities as well as check some boxes on some amazing classes for our state/national mandated electives for the year as well as extra classes to learn new tricks or how to do old ones better. I’m super excited about the chance to break away from the office for a bit even if it’s for a work conference trip. Market absorption rates, marketing standards and guidelines, how to make a short sale/foreclosure sale move more smoothly (pro tip, a “short sale” is nothing close to that, often taking months to wrap up and anything to make the foreclosure mess more clean…I’m in), etc.
