Hello 2018… We’re Ready for You
Friday, December 29, 2017
Written By: Victoria Reviel

I am incredibly humbled and honored to serve the members of WCREALTORS as the President in 2018. I have been involved with the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® for almost 20 years, and I am ecstatic at the direction our Association is headed. Our 2017 Board of Directors, led by Suzanne Gantner did an exceptional job, and I am looking forward to building on these achievements.

In case you missed the Annual Installation & Awards Banquet on December 7th, it was a magical night; not only did we get real snow in Williamson County, we also had a great night celebrating with almost 300 real estate professionals as we recognized those who helped make 2017 a success.

2017, A Year in Review
Friday, December 01, 2017
Written By: Suzanne Gantner

WCREALTORS has been a productive place this year with an astronomical amount of growth and change! It feels just like yesterday that our 2017 Board of Directors were installed, and a year has already completed, just in the blink of an eye.  What all happened at WCREALTORS in 2017? A better question would be “What didn’t?”.

The Association hosted close to 2,000 students in various classes and educational seminars this year. A huge thank you to all of our instructors and professional development committee who helped make this possible.  Furthermore, would you believe that almost 1,000 people attended Association events in 2017? We had our first experience with the Super Bowl of Builders being held off-site at the Dell Diamond and had record number with over 500 folks attending.

Creating Client Satisfaction

“Great Job.” “Thanks for all your help.” “You did a fabulous job!” “You got us a fantastic deal.” “Your time is truly appreciated.”

Isn’t it nice to hear those words?  It feels good, doesn’t it? I know it isn’t something everyone hears all the time, but it sure feels good when someone acknowledges you for your hard work.

Don’t Let Neighbors Downgrade Your Listing
Friday, October 13, 2017
Written By: NAR

It’s a dilemma in which no real estate professional wants to be stuck: snagging the perfect listing in a desirable area—right next door to the neighborhood eyesore. Whether it’s an unkempt property neglected by messy owners or an abandoned home falling into disarray, the ugly house next door can have a real and negative effect on the curb appeal of your listing. Your first instinct might be to ignore it and focus on the home you’re selling But potential buyers don’t have blinders on, and they’ll see the nearby nuisance right off the bat. So it’s best to address the problem head-on. With a little creative thinking, you can keep potential buyers’ attention on your listing and work through objections to any unsightliness next door. Here’s how.

The Scary Things We See in Real Estate
Tuesday, October 03, 2017
Written By: Suzanne Gantner

Since Halloween is coming up, we thought it would be fun to talk about some creepy and scary things that we go through when selling Real Estate. These things don’t happen all the time, usually, it’s business as usual but when they do, you don’t forget it.

First thing I would like to address is when we have a scary client. You know the kind, they follow behind you…. breathing down your neck, questioning your every statement and then decide you aren’t the expert they are. They then decide to voice their opinion on everything and it is always negative. These people are called energy drainers, they just wear you out and down.
