Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : May 2008

OFF TO MICHIGAN

We are all packed up and ready to go.  My wife is just making final arrangements now.  And then...

We are off to Michigan.

It has been a busy morning. 

I stopped by RE/MAX Action to pick up my license.  Now I will have to find a place to hang it.

Decisions, Decisions.

RE/MAX.  The old stand by.  Very expensive.  Big name.

Baird and Warner.  Interesting alternative.  I know an office that comes highly recommended.  I need to learn more.

Exit Realty, Keller Williams, Century 21 all possibilities. 

This will be an important decision.  I don't want to make another mistake.

It needs to be the right decision for me.  It needs to be a good fit.

My last office was never quite right.

The next one will be.

I am a free agent.  Exciting.

WE WILL BE MOVING

43 DOWN, 57 TO GO

I thought it time I give an update on my goal… TO WRITE 100 NOTES. Originally encouraged to write notes to past customers by Kevin O'Neil, I set my goal of writing 100 hand written notes to my "sphere of influence". I… more
HOW IS THE MARKET?

If I had a nickel for every time I was asked this question, I would have a lot of nickels. I am sure all real estate agents are asked it all the time. "How is the market? " My boss always answers, "Unbelievable! "… more
A GORGEOUS DAY DRIVING
share
I drove a lot today. Around Naperville. Lisle, Lombard, Glen Ellyn, and Villa Park too. I enjoy driving the back roads when I can, as opposed to the big streets. It allows me the opportunity to see more homes and more neighborhoods. .. more

I WILL STAY IN NAPERVILLE… SOMEHOW?
share
I have no choice. I have done too much work over the last 3 years to walk away. I have shaken too many hands, held too many open houses, passed out too many cards, met WAY too many people to fail now. I HAVE BUILT A HUGE BUSINESS. … more
GETTING BUSY

It's strange. I have had to catch myself. I knew something was different. And then I realized I have been getting busy. I was at two birthday parties on Saturday. I almost try to avoid talking work at parties, yet work always finds me… more

I always find it interesting showing foreclosed homes. I showed one this morning. It was in a beautiful subdivision in Naperville called West Wind. Originally priced at $451, 900, the home has been on the market just over three months… more
