KW Red Day pumping petunias for Panhandle Special Needs Inc.

 

Each year on May 11th Keller Williams agents take the day off work to renew, energize and donate their time to helping the community.  This year the Sandpoint Keller Willams Realty picked the Sandpoint Idaho Panhandle Special Needs  to help.

Keller Williams Realty Red Day 2017

 

“There are red shirts everywhere” one of the clients exclaimed. She wasn’t kidding!

Lisa Holder, Karen Rodriguez and the rest of us were busy weeding, raking, pulling branches, sweeping, hauling, shoveling. Our fearless leader Bud Bolan brought in and shoveled a truckload of bark. Kris Kingsland could be found swinging in the trees pruning them to perfection. Tony Villelli and Yvette Rainey was entrusted to put together the picnic tables with the added challenge of no instructions. No extra parts were found after assembly, good job guys!   Yours truely, Rain Silverhawk was busy “waking the plant beds” and planting petunias in hanging baskets for the Mothers Day sale. These baskets are BIG be sure to come get one.  Toby Atencio played “Mr. Fix it” with the equipment and then stayed long after to finish weed whacking while his son chipped all the branches.  Thanks guys I was beat!

Clark Fork Idaho mobile home sold

SOLD and Moved!  Clark Fork Idaho mobile home sold.  Congratulations to both my seller and my buyers on this one.  The sellers had moved away and it was just too hard to keep up with a place so far away.  My buyer came in and not only bought it but moved it to her land in Montana the first week after close of escrow.  She did an amazing job of coordinating the move before the snow flew.   Congratulations to everyone and thank you for letting me handle  another great home sale in Clark Fork Idaho.

Scam alert. Does your buyer really have a job?

Last year I sold a home to a wonderful couple and a short time later the kids decided to follow. We found a great home for them and the buyer got hired for a local job at a great company, or so he thought! We went through a ton of ups and downs, they uprooted their life, packed the moving vans and headed for their new life. Escrow was delayed but we got to that wonderful day that we were ready to sign the closing documents. The family was here with everything in moving vans and he was ready to start his new job this next week.We were in the walk through when I get a call from the title company saying we could not sign yet. A quick call from the lender revealed that they were doing the customary phone verification checks to close the file and the new job had no record of the buyer or the name of the guy that hired him. Recounting the events surrounding the hire, the buyer drove up here, met the employer in the parking lot and headed out to a local restraunt to talk over the job. This off site interview led to the hire. Over the course of several months letters of employment were issued, several phone calls were made, and requirements like physicals were met.The only problem was it was a scam. There was no such job, the boss wasn’t a person at the company and Human resources had no idea who our buyer was. Needless to say we wound up with a family that moved to a new state, without a job, without a home and their lives have been turned upside down. Most of the things we run across that turn out to be scams work only because they are so unexpecting. Everyday mundane things that we deal with everyday can be twisted around to something sinister.  Be sure to be extra vigilent where you can be.  You can be sure I will be more proactive at checking out job start dates with human resource department heads of record instead of the number on the the letter head.

When things go wrong pick yourself up.

I was talking with an associate who had a bit of a falling out with a client and just could not understand what happened. She took a listing and everything just fell into place. It was just one of those transactions that anyone looking in could give her a pat on the back for a job well done. She stepped up her game her marketing was great, client interest was fantastic. Although it was quite a distance away she managed to be present for over 50 showings in a 3 week period. The repore with one spouse was good and although she only saw the other spouse twice she felt she made a good impression. A few emergencies were handled swiftly and well and the offer that came in was well negotiated. It was one of those dealings that she could be very proud of the work she had done and all was well until suddenly it wasn’t. The offer fell out. Zillow was erroneously showing a preforeclosure status from years before. A less than ethical agent was interferring with the clients and frustrated clients unleashed on her.In listening to her story I have had some instances that parralleled it to the tee both in my business and in my personal life. If you have been in real estate for any length of time you are bound to find yourself in this type of situation at least once or twice. Its not fair, it doesn’t make sense and I know first hand that it hurts twice as bad to be reamed when you know you did an exemplary job. Real estate is not an easy job and emotions can run high. You can be sure that you will be beat up from time to time and other times you will be rewarded well. If it happens to you the best you can do is to realize that as long as you know in your heart that you really did do a good job you pick yourself up, brush off, move on and try not to let it bruise you too much.
