Families for Early Autism Treatment

This Saturday, September 20th, Julie will be participating in the FEAT WALK to raise funds for Families for Early Autism Treatment. Julie is part of the Ben Wasylkiw Team who is the son of a very good client and a great young man who Julie got to know and love while showing homes to his Mom. This is a great organization which serves our local community and can make a difference for the next child who receives an Autism diagnosis. Help Julie raise funds for Ben and the hundreds of new and overwhelmed parents who call daily for help. More information

Crossing the Line

It seems like recently we have been dealing with some agents who have a different idea of what you will do in the name of negotiating. I fully believe in representing our clients in strong and occasionally forceful manner but I think lying is not what clients want their agents to do on their behalf. We recently had to deal with an agent who when we submitted an offer, lied about getting other offers, lied about the ability to meet with their client and made the process of submitting the offer and getting into contract very distasteful. It is agents like this who add to the impression real estate agents are not very ethical.

My column over at Rocklin & Roseville Today is about why I believe the California and greater Sacramento housing markets are not performing better. Check it out, “What is slowing the California Housing Recovery?,” and let me know if you agree or have other reasons you believe real estate is not booming.

Please like our MagnumOne Realty page on Facebook, we are posting real estate and local community information there daily. We would love to have you “like” us.


Where are the first time buyers?

There have been a number of real estate articles about the low numbers of first time buyers in the market. I think one of the reasons we are not seeing more first time buyers is it is hard for them to qualify for a mortgage. I don’t expect to see lenders significantly reduce credit standards but I read about a possible change which could help first time buyers and renters. Check out my weekly real estate column, “Could be easier for renters to buy,” over at Rocklin & Roseville Today.

Agent Focus on Shanna Mooney

We love our agents and think Shanna Mooney is a rising star on the MagnumOne Realty team. She has been with us a few months now and her commitment to her clients is wonderful. Here is what she had to say about it, “I am committed to serving as your source of information for the industry, while providing comprehensive assistance with all of your real estate transactions. With over 10 years of customer service experience, I strive to make the buying and selling processes as seamless as possible while keeping a direct focus on my client’s needs and desires. I work diligently for each and every one of my clients to build a strong relationship based on trust and integrity that will last a lifetime.”

Do Your Job

It is not just real estate; any job where you have to depend on others can be frustrating. In our business, every transaction has a multiple players who must be counted on to perform their part. We deal with other agents who represent the “other side of the transaction,” lenders if the property being purchased is being financed, and escrow who is the neutral third party to every real estate sale. There are others but these are the main players we depend on to do their jobs.

This past week we are complaining about the “other agent.” Seems like we have three or four transactions where the agent representing the buyer or seller is asleep or not showing any desire to move the transaction along. This past weekend we fell far behind and were in jeopardy of losing a sale because the other agent who was representing the buyer of a house we have listed decided to go out of town and extend her stay without having any back-up or communication. This morning we are waiting for responses on two other transactions which were promised yesterday morning. What is up with people not doing their job and worse not communicating when there is a delay?

There is a simple rule to increase your probability of success: “Do what you say you will do.”
