I will be the first to tell you that I don’t know everything there is about real estate. But guess what? Anyone who tells you that they do is lying to you. Why? Because it is always changing. By the very nature of houses coming and from the market, every day is a new day in real estate and every day is different. One house selling in a neighborhood can change the entire neighborhood.
So with that, I am going to offer up some of my thoughts and knowledge about real estate in hopes that maybe I can make things a little easier for those out there who do not deal in it every day. So if you are ever in the process of buying or selling, there could be some things that help you along the way. I might even throw in some things that apply to life in general along the way. Many times the concepts apply to both.
Who am I? I am a REALTOR in Kansas City, MO for ReeceNichols Real Estate. Shameless plug- we are the #1 real estate company in the city by a fairly large margin. Not that I necessarily have been a huge spoke in the wheel moving the company to #1, mind you. But I am one who believes that if you are going to be the best at something, you have to surround yourself with the best. So that is what I did. Cue the, “I am standing on the shoulders of giants” and other awesomely bad clichés that are appropriate. Also, I am a husband, and father to two young, head strong kids. This means I am well practiced in the art of negotiating. In fact, I think having young kids should be a must when you are considering them to be advocate on your behalf. Seriously. Those with kids are nodding in approval.
So strap in and let’s start this thing called blogging about real estate!
