After you’ve applied for a home loan, you can expect to receive a Loan Estimate (mentioned above) from your lender. If you applied for more than one type of loan, an LE will be broken down for each loan type. The APR for a loan will be listed on page 3 of the LE, in the comparison section.


Success is on call 24/7. So should you. You got this. Keep your eyes on the prize.


Spend Time on Agents
The average experience level of agents across the market is eight years, which means most haven’t weathered a market shift. That’s where training and broker support come in.

Focus on Relationships
Brokers who only know the last decade are not accustomed to agents having to get deals done in a higher mortgage rate environment with a severe lack of first-time homebuyer inventory and a market that is taking a wait-and-see approach.

Simplify Costs
Michael Killmer, CENTURY 21 North Homes Realty in Lynwood, Washington, is going “old school again,” referring to his company’s focus on business fundamentals in its training, learning and coaching.

Look at Possible Partnerships
In periods of contraction, merger and partnership opportunities typically present themselves as broker owners announce to the market that they are looking for an exit or an opportunity to affiliate with a larger firm.

Invest in Space and Support
One critical part of business planning is keeping an office space up to date and relevant. His plan for 2023 includes upgrading to a completely new space and investing more to support their agents.


Real estate agents with any experience in the field are certainly familiar with how an appraisal works. Many agents have worked with appraisers for years and have a strong understanding of the appraisal process. But how much do you know about the process of appraisal review? This can be important because there are times when a transaction may not be considered complete without one.


Smart home tech isn’t just for the single-family home. These systems and devices can improve property management, reduce cost and emissions and enhance the tenant experience.


The protocol helps DIY smart-home devices talk to one another, even if they’re on different platforms, creating a more seamless experience for the end user.


Make sure you’re ready for a home loan by asking yourself a few hard questions:

Are my finances in order? (Good credit, no/low debt, enough cash flow to meet monthly expenses)
Have I saved enough for a down payment and closing costs?
Can I qualify for mortgage payments that will comfortably fit my monthly budget?
Is my income stable enough to afford a mortgage, property taxes and insurance, and other expenses?
Will a home that I can afford now suit my/my family’s needs for the foreseeable future?
Do I plan to stay in the home at least five years? (If you sell too soon, you may lose money because of the costs of buying and selling, as well as the short-term unpredictability of housing market growth.)


Do not make this mistake when listing your home…

Selling your home with an instant offer site or by yourself, without hiring a licensed real estate agent.

Here are 3 reasons why you should ALWAYS use an agent to sell your home:

Around 90% of FSBOs fail to sell their home without an agent.*
Instant offer sites tack on fees AND pay less than market value.
FSBO homes sell for about 26% less on average than properties represented by real estate agents.*
If you’re looking to maximize your profits, your best bet is to work with an agent who knows how to make that happen. DM me if you’re considering selling your property—I’d love to connect.


Whatever the energy you put out to the universe is the exact same energy you are going to get. Be courageous and vibrant.


Excuses are for the weak. Always be commited. Always find ways.


Find a broker who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold.


No one better to teach how to be rich than the Warren Buffet.

Keep this in mind!

And all the in-betweens!

For all your real estate needs, I got your back.


Purchasing a home will most likely be the single largest investment you will make, so it is important to make sure you find a home that meets your current and future needs. It’s best not to look at just one home, but also not to look at more than 6 or 7 in one day. It’s common to confuse the features if you view too many in one day. Bring a notepad and pen and take notes on your likes and dislikes of each home.


In addition, real estate agents are often more knowledgeable about the market value of other homes in the neighborhood and are aware of certain properties that may not be advertised to the public. If a bank or financial institution lists a new home, real estate agents are often the first to be informed, which can give you an advantage when finding a property before other buyers are aware that it's on the market.


When you don’t do them, it’s almost certain that the buyer will make their offer contingent on their own inspections. This will increase the likelihood of them asking you to make repairs and/or renegotiate the price. And it increases the chances of them getting nervous and backing out of the sale of your home. If you want to sell fast and for top dollar, you need to make sure you minimize the questions potential buyers have before they submit an offer on your home. Getting inspections before selling does this.


If you overprice, you’ll have:

Less foot traffic
Fewer offers
Hesitant agents
Skeptical buyers


Can I be real for a second? I’ve shown a lot of homes, and can I just say that one of the bestT things you can do as a seller is oh-so-simply but incredibly underrated. It's this:

Clean. You'd be shocked at the number of homes I show that simply aren’t clean. So, if you’re getting your home ready for the market and stressing about showings, my biggest piece of advice is this: Do a top-to-bottom deep clean of your house before it hits the market. Even if you have to hire it out, do it. It's worth every penny.

After cleaning, here are a few other things to keep in mind as you prepare for a showin.

Showings can be stressful (especially on short notice), but when your house is clean, it's not nearly as hard to get it looking its best. If you'd like more tips on how to get your home ready to sell, I'm here. Shoot me a DM, and let’s talk.


Hi buyers, ever heard of an “off-market” property? Spoiler alert! It’s something you’re going to want to know about.


In a few short years, Hata formed her team and continued to grow her business—but not without missteps. She shared the details of her current team structure at a Sunday session called “How to Start a Team as a Solo Agent” during NAR NXT, The REALTOR® Experience in Orlando, Fla. But she cautioned that there isn’t just one type of team structure that works.


Pull your sofa away from the living room wall and rearrange chairs closer to create a conversation area. Too much furniture will congest the living space. You may need to consider removing a few unnecessary pieces so it's easy for people to walk around in the rooms.
Your furniture is arranged the way it best suits you and your family. As much as possible, you would have to depersonalize the home prior to selling. Rearranging furniture makes potential buyers feel the home is all prepped up for them to move in.


It’s become quite the trend to transform a dull and drab piece of property you own into a luxurious, aesthetically pleasing home you can rent out for cash each month.

But the truth is, I've seen flips go amazingly well, AND I've seen them crash and burn. Bad. So, before you jump on the bandwagon, here are a few things to know about home flipping.


Combining the best assets of the brokerage and real estate team concepts can help provide agents what they need while taking pressure off the broker.


Investment properties on the brain? Here are 3 mistakes to steer clear of. If you’re looking to dive into real estate investing, let’s chat! I would love to help you reach your goals.


Get agent referrals from other recent home buyers. Interview at least a few agents, and request references. When speaking with potential agents, ask about their experience helping first-time home buyers in your market and how they plan to help you find a home. You might also ask how they find homes that aren't yet on the market, which can be a handy skill when buyer competition is fierce.


Again, working with a professional here is important – either a Real Estate agent skilled in video tours or a professional who makes real estate videos. Homebuyers will probably look at the photos first, but once they take a look at the video, it will seal the deal, and they will be scheduling a showing.


So don't be afraid to pick up the phone. Introduce yourself! Let everyone who who you are. It will all fall into place soon!


Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most! I am thankful for the amazing people I met this past year and for my ability to help them with the most important investment they'll ever make. What do you think?
