Your Insider Investing for Real Estate Agents book has been very helpful. While I am not the one at the company who hires speakers, I have recommended your book and website to many of my colleagues. Cynthia Lee, Weichert Realtors


Referral List of Repair People March 28th, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

Maybe you had the post-listing inspection and there was a list of things that the inspector had recommended before selling the home or maybe there are some small things that you had mentioned during a pre-listing walk through – whatever the case, sometimes a gentle reminder of options is needed.

Remember, you should have a list of unpaid team members who are part of your trust circle.  This includes individuals who can do various sorts of home repair and updates.  If you don’t have a list of trusted professionals, start building one TODAY.

You need a plumber, a painter, an electrician….  The internet can be a good source to find these home maintenance experts, but with so many options – how do you know who’s qualified and who just paid for good search engine strategy?  I have always found that word of mouth or recommendations from friends are the better way to choose a professional to help you fix your home’s problems.

As a real estate agent, I work with homeowners every day.  Many of their homes eventually need some kind of repair or upkeep.  I make it a point to ask them which company they use and if that company is reliable and efficient.  Then I keep all of that information in my database so that I can share it with people like you.

The next time you need a referral for someone to fix a leaky roof, paint your home, create your landscaping, or for any other type of home maintenance project you do not want to do yourself, give me a call.  I know some of the best maintenance experts in town.
