It Is A Hot Real Estate Market For Dallas Realtors! Home Values Are At Record Highs!
By Alex
August 3, 2017

        Attention Dallas Real Estate Agents!  Zillow.com has released its market reports for your local housing market and values are up 12.2%!  They are expected to go up another 5% within a year!  That is amazing.  Not to mention that the stock market hit an all time high yesterday at over 22,000!  The economy is booming and everyone is going to be able to cash in on it.  We truly are in a flourishing time right now.

        Real estate in Dallas has been some of the best in the United States for years now.  It grows on average 10% every year, but for 2017 it could almost double.  That means that real estate agents like me and others are about to get busier then ever.  Right now is the time for homeowners to be selling their home before the markets dips.  Statisticly the market will rise and peak.  Then there will be a dip.  It doesn't mean anything is wrong, but it is only natural.  So cashing in while you can is important.  It is also good for homeowners to sell because they can make money and still be able to find a good deal when buying a home.  All homeowners have to buy a home.  If you don't strike while the iron is hot then you will break even when selling and then buying.  Which isn't a bad thing, but everyone wants to make a small finacial return before values get too high on all playing fields.  

        It doesn's matter who you are.  The housing market is a huge part of life.  Even if you rent.  It dictates rents as well.  I love being a Dallas Real Estate Agent.  I work everyday the be one of the best.  Right now I am busier then ever.  I have won some and lost some.  Clients can be finicky at times.  Regardelss, I don't give up.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Are Real Estate Companies Like Opendoor Hurting The Housing Market Or Helping?
By Alex
August 1, 2017

        I have been a Dallas Real Estate Agent for 3 years now.  In that time I have seen a lot.  Nothing is ever constant and in the blink of an eye the market can change.  One thing that stays the same is that I try to get as many listings as possible.  "More Listings" is the golden rule taught to all Real Estate Agents while they are in school.  Trying to get a listing is always challenging and is always my top priority.  Everyday I try to get a listing appointment with a home owner.  Thus, increasing my chances of becoming one of the best real estate agents in Dallas.  

        Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about companies like Opendoor who are trying to eliminate the need for a realtor when selling your home.  Instead they offer flat fees to homeowners and an "open house" type of policy to your home during the entire duration of the listing.  Sound great?!  Right!  Well the truth of it is that is looks very attractive.  It cuts out the need for a Realtor meaning that you have a sales team in charge of your home.  Consumers have to talk to somone in a sales q that is has your home information in a file.  They have never even been to the home before.  They are an hourly paid employee.  Also, they are not available to show the home to prospective buyers.  Instead they have an "opendoor" policy where they put a dead bolt on the home with a combo code...awesome.  So that means that anyone and I mean anyone can walk through your home.  It takes out the need once again for someone to be with a trusted and licensed Dallas Realtor when walking through your home.  It puts you and your family at risk.  The list goes on really about how horrible this company is.  

        Opendoor has doing a huge marketing campaign to try and sucker as many homeowners into using them.  It has created more competition for licensed Realtors when they are at a listing appointment and the seller is trying to decide between using you or a flat fee brokerage like Opendoor.  Really it is a no brainer.  with a Realtor you get professional service with photos, one on one interactions, daily updates, peace of mind during showings, customized marketing, and so much more.  Don't be fooled by and have an opendoor policy to your home.  Those are your valuables and your family that you are putting at risk.  You need a Realtor that will stand with you throughout the entire process.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Attention Dallas Realtors! Why You Should Treat Every Listing Like A Luxury Home!
By Alex
July 25, 2017

        Wow!  The struggle is real.  Trying to find the perfect home for a client can be hard.  Not only do you have the Texas heat upon you, but you have to look over thousands of homes for sale.  A lot of times you will find the home of your dreams and then in a flash it is gone!  That is the real estate market we are living in tho!  It is super hot right now.  

        One thing I have noticed in my search with home buyers is that Realtor after Realtor has a home for sale and you would think they were selling oranges...I use that term becasue they are not treating the home like a Dallas Luxury Home!  Let me explain.  A home owner calls you to sell their home because they want to move.  Sometimes they are taking a job out of state and have to relocate.  Other times they just want to upgrade because their family is growing.  Yet, it boggles my mind to see real estate agents that take the worse pictures I have ever seen, they give a short description of the home, and they don't do the home owner any justice by selling the home over the phone when you call.  You would think that every Realtor in Dallas would treat a home like a luxury listing whether it is 1 dollar, 250,000 dollars, or a million dollars.  I truly wonder what the home owner thinks of their agent when they look up their home on sites like Zillow or Realtor.com.  I mean do they not call the Realtor and rip them a new one?  I work my tail off marketing and trying to get listings.  I literally was on top of a home for 3 days painting it for a client.  The home was only worth $85,000, but I didn't care.  I wasn't going to treat my client any different.  

        I take pride in what I do and it shows.  One day I want to be a Top Dallas Realtor not just for my efforts around town, but because of my production numbers.  I am going to continue to treat every home like a luxury listing.  When I see a half a million dollar home that is being marketed like it's a treehouse or something....I am just going to bite my tongue and say a prayer for that home owner.  Hopefully that agent will learn the hard way that you have to take care of your clients like they are a rockstar.  They thought you were during the listing appointment.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
