Showings

  • Schedule a day and time that works for both of us, I work days, evenings and weekends
  • I usually show 6-7 properties maximum during one outing, as after 7, they all tend to blur together
  • All the listing information is on my IPad, in my attempt to be paperless and save some trees
  • I create a notebook for you on my IPad in Evernote, where you can take pictures, jot down notes on each property and also make voice votes
  • I share the notebook link with you
  • I share my knowledge and expertise as we are walking through the home and point out important things about the home, the good, the bad and the ugly

  • Work and protect your best interests
  • Find and email you properties based on your criteria
  • Book showings
