Relocating To Dallas With Alex Prins Real Estate And Coldwell Banker REALTORS
By Alex
April 1, 2016

March is coming to an end.  It was one heck of a month.  I am going to refer to it as March Madness.  Alex Prins Real Estate recieved the largest amount of clients wanting to relocate to Dallas from another state.  I have never had so many inbound relocation requests.  Part of the reason so many people are wanting to move to Dallas is because all the jobs are moving here.  We have one of the best economies in the U.S.  Also, Alex Prins Real Estate has partnered with Coldwell Banker Relocation to make the process even easier.  

Relocation can be hard when you are moving to a new city.  Dallas has so many amazing neighborhoods to live in and the surrounding citites have some of the best schools in the countries.  It can be over whelming when thinking about moving to a new city.  You have a home to sell, things to pack, children in school, animals, cars, and the litst goes on.  The first thing to do is to take a deep breath and call a realtor.  We can handle all of this.  Alex Prins Real Estate was voted Best Business 2015 for real estate.  Part of that has to do with our amazing relocation department.

My latest relocation was for a client moving from Phoenix Arizona to Dallas.  It was a breeze for my client.  He was moving here for work and chose me to guide him through the process.  We spent a weekend looking for apartments and were able to find the perfect one.  We were in contact for the span of 3 months emailing and talking back and forth.  It was like he was here in Dallas before we actually met in person.  I helped him with photos of apartments, neighborhoods, advice, spread sheets, and so on. That way he was able to narrow down the search before arriving.  After we found an apartment the next step was to get his relocation services through Coldwell Banker in order.  They called him and set up everything that he needs.  He said it was seemless.  I was so happy for him.  No one likes being stressed when moving to a city that you know nothing about.  I was his guide.

I love relocating clients to Dallas.  Coldwell Banker makes it a breeze as well for my clients.  It's a match made in real estate heaven.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

Staging Your Home Can Sell It Faster In Dallas
By Alex
April 6, 2016

Staging your home can add a lot of value when selling it.  Dallas is one of the hottest real estate markets and standing out is crucial.  There are so many homes for sale.  You are just another pretty home when it to consumers.  We need to change that.

Now with websites like Realtors.com and Zillow.com, buyers are becoming smarter about the way they search for a home.  Sometimes they are a bit overwhelmed when looking at hundreds of homes.  And trust me they looks at hundreds of homes.  Most clients search online before calling a real estate agent.  This means that pictures speak a thousand words.  Anyone can list their home with a real estate agent and hold open houses.  Staging your home steps up your game big time.  It visually adds appeal.  Also, it shows that you are serious about selling your home.  Staging is a professional design asspect that home sellers do to make their home look like somthing you would see in an interior design magazine.  The price of it can vary from around $1,000-$3,000.  This may seem like a lot of money, but staging a home can actually make your home look more desirable.  This will make your home sell for more money.  And we all want more money.  

As your real estate agent I am here to advise you on ways to sell your home and what you can do to better those odds.  Staging is a professional treatment that needs to be used by every home seller.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

All REALTORS Are Not Created Equal
By Alex
April 20, 2016

Being a real estate agent in Dallas is both rewarding and stressfull.  The ying and the yang.  I have been a realtor for 2 years now.  I have seen it all.  Most days are smooth sailing.  Other days are crazy, but do-able.  Lately I have encountered a new challenge.  That is the dawn of the rude ass realtor.  Pardon my french.  There are over 25,000 realtors in dallas.  There are going to be a lot of different personalities, but some of them are literally cray cray.  Yes, I said cray, cray.  I recenlty have been dealing with 2 realtors within the same week who are being so off the wall rude, obsesive, belittleing, and irrational.  

I am the kind of real estate agent that always keeps my integrity.  I try to always be professional.  Becoming a Top Real Estate Agent in Dallas didn't happen over night.  I worked very hard.  However, I will never be rude to another realtor.  The two lately have insulted my clients and I in order to try and get a good deal...I dont know the thinking behind that.  Being rude and attatcking someones professionalism is not a means of negotiation.  It is actually a form of bullying.  Which is a huge issue.  Some realtors bullly you to try and make you feel inferior.  It is very sad.  Integrity makes you last in this business.  I will always keep mine.  

I know that real estate agents come in all shapes and sizes.  Being rude is never an option.  There is no room for it.  Life is too short to be a bully.  I truly almost had a braking point this hit.  However, I stayed stong.  Being kind goes a long way.  Alwalys be a professional and kind realtor.  It will take you a lot further.  You catch more bees with honey than with vinegar.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.

The Real Housewives Of Dallas Review
By Alex
April 20, 2016

Last night was the premiere of The Real Housewives Of Dallas.  It was Texas sized too!  Yee haw!  Bravo has done it again.  Im still waiting for them to do a show called Million Dollar Listing Dallas with me in it...I'll take the Real Housewives show for now.  

The Real Housewives has been such a successful part of reality tv.  I'm happy that they finally came to Dallas.  They show a lot about the charity world.  This comes to no surprise as Dallas is big on charities.  I threw a charity last year to try and get more involved in the community.  The cast member seemed to talk non stop about different charities that they are supporting.  The girls were seen stomping around Dallas and shopping.  They also showed a lot of the cast member in their homes.  And these girls have some fabulous homes.  I was a little jealous.  I'll be fine tho.  LOL.

As a realtor of course I was trying to scope out the real estate as much as I could.  I recognized Marie Reyes from her medical spa and I have to say that her home was the most fabulous.  She isn't a cast member and istead a friend, but I dont care.  Her home was fabulous.  It seemed to be covered in marble.  The ceilings must have been 20 feet tall and she had a kitchen to die for.  Not to mention that this is where all the drama happened.  "Its looking a little Plano around here", will be the quite heard around Dallas.  Drama has always been a part of Bravo and made for good tv.  There sure was a lot of talk about farts and Jesus juice, but I digress. 

Overall the Real Housewives Of Dallas was great.  They were entertaining and those ladies had some fine houses.  Even the filler scenes of Dallas was full of beautiful homes.  It made me proud to live in Dallas.  Hopefully I'll get myself on Million Dollar Listing, but for now perhaps I can sell one of the ladies a new home.  They are housewives afterall.  And that whole Plano comment....well I love Plano and it is still one of the best cities outside of Dallas to live in.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs whether its in Dallas or Plano.
