Have you heard about the local Fairfax County case where an incomplete HOA Resale Package was delivered and the buyer was unable to claim their EMD after voiding the contract based on receiving the incomplete package? Even if documents are missing, the 3 day right to void will expire unless an addendum is written up to extend and signed/agreed upon by all parties. The HOA Statute says that the only right a buyer enjoys upon receipt of this incomplete package is to do one of two things: (1) Cancel the Contract; or (2) Ask the HOA for an update on the materials BUT the 3 day review period STILL applies.

Be sure to keep your buyer clients protected by staying up to date with these laws/rulings and know that RATM is tracking the deadlines for you!

The weekend is just about here! But first, CLOSINGS!

CONGRATS on another great week!

Who else is THRILLED that spring is finally here?!


Just like that...we've made it to FRIYAY!

I needed something to brighten up my Monday — these beauties are doing the trick #RATM #mondaygrind #transactionmanagement #transactioncoordinator

Loving this today 💗 #normalisoverrated

What a week we are wrapping up today!

Great work on closings for Andrea Hayes with Living Realty, Irina Babb with RE/MAX Allegiance, Browning Homes Group with eXp Realty, Jay Rowzie with Living Realty, Kelly Gaitten with BHHS PenFed Realty, and Amanda White with NOVA Home Hunters!

We would also like to welcome Debbie Meighan, Tina Collazo, and Ashley O'Brien to the RATM family! THANK YOU for your new contracts and/or listings along with Andrea Hayes, Ryan Clegg, Kathi Robinson, Amanda White, Irina Babb, and Christy Stuart!

We appreciate you all keeping us busy on these cold January days :) Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, all!

I recently sent out a survey to the fantastic REALTORS® that RATM has the pleasure of working with and one of the questions asked agents to rank the traits of their Transaction Coordinator in order of importance to them (see categories A, B, C, and D). I thought there would be a more clear general trend, but so many people answered this question differently, which I find fascinating!

How would you rank these four categories? Let us know what is most important to you! The good news is...RATM has you covered in all of these areas :)
