Love where you work Keller Williams Realty reason 1 My listing Syndication

I had a long time associate call me up and he was looking for a new place to hang his license. He wanted to know how my new company was and what I liked about it. I realized that I could not sum it up in just one phone conversation. In all of my years at being a real estate agent and all the companies that I have worked for over the decades, Keller Williams is a remarkable office to work for.

The following posts will be about what I love most about Keller Williams and why I would recommend Keller Williams to my colleagues.


The very first one is going to be the listing syndication. I have always syndicated my listings, but usually through alot of work, money, and time. This allows me to get my listings on about 3000 webpages easily. I don’t have to pay for the services, wait forever for them to post. I don’t have re-enter all the listings or be confined to short descriptions or too few pictures. I can post my name, phone and url on the photos if I want to. There is a buyer for each and every property listing out there, and my job is to make sure that they see it. The wide spread coverage helps me get my listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible. I can provide more feedback, service more buyers and get quicker sales.

What I do for my clients selling a home

Ready to sell your home, both of us have alot of work to do. 




I often hear from people that I wear many hats throughout the day.  During a typical day I am on the phone calling banks, title companies, well drillers, excavators, clients, plumbers, surveyors, etc.


I may be giving advice, digging a hole, providing counselling, working on a computer, repairing a hole in the drywall, juggling schedules.  Sometimes I go home and feel like dropping, but there is usually even more that needs to be done.  So lets look at a couple of things to do when selling a home.


My first pieces of advise for any seller are these three things.






Setting the price. 


Our market is moving quickly right now but in any market one of the most important things you can do is set the price right.  Buyers are very well versed in what prices should be at.  If they just saw ten 3 bedroom 2 bath 2000 sqft homes sell for $200,000 in your neighborhood, they are not going to bother looking at yours for $250,000


Setting the stage

You only get one shot to make a good first impression.  A clean nice smelling, de-cluttered house makes for a good showing and quicker sale.  If the buyer’s first impression is WOW, then they tend to overlook the little things that didn’t quite fit in their wish list.  If it is extremely cluttered they usually think that it will take a person to long to move.  If they are looking at a mess, many people just can’t get past it. 


Make it easy to view

I can almost always guarantee that someone will want to see the house at the worst possible moment.  While there are of course exceptions, make it as easy as possible for agents to get in and show your house.  You never know what sale you are saying no to.


Things I do to sell a home.


The first is to take pictures, lots of them. 

Next I enter the home in 2 different MLS systems which cover all of North Idaho.

I place a sign, order riders and special signs.

I gather plat maps, aerials, utility bills, list the companies, contact HOA’s pull ccrs, call for preliminary title reports, assemble a property package.


Getting your home under as many noses as possible brings success. 


I list your home on at least 50 websites for maximum exposure, and send a list of links that your ad appears.


I make a virtual tour on and send the stats to you each week.

I make flyers and buy a flyer box.

I have a key made and put up a lock box

I send out a note to all the agents

I make up and send out postcards

I send the neighbors a just listed announcement

I advertise in local classified ads.

I advertise in feeder markets in other cities.

I place announcements in employee lounges and bulletin boards

I contact my buyers to announce your property to them

I use my networking connections to get the word out.



We have a reverse prospecting in the mls, so I contact the agents to let them know they have a client who might be a good fit for your property.

Prequalifying buyers, arriving at your home to turn on the lights and making it presentable for showings,  Showing the property.

Follow up.  I follow up with agents and buyers.


So lets see what else is there.  Well I have done everything from washing dishes and taking out the trash, to uncovering septics, walking property lines, pulling out my hair, walking the dog during showings, crawling under houses, tracking down leaky pipes, picking up laundry, mending fences, painting, calling everyone and arranging repairs,  Did I mention pulling out my hair?


How about an update. 

When you list your home for sale you wanted it to sell right away.  I am often busy chasing down the details and working on promoting your property.  If I don’t tell you though, how are you going to know.  I try to be good about  taking the time to contact you and let you know what I am doing.   I am going to work on this though to be even better, because I do know it is important.


Negotiating a sale.  I do my best to put buyers and sellers together and make a deal that everyone is happy with.  Once we get past that part, and the paper work is in, escrow is opened and I am putting a SALE PENDING sign. 


 Ah the work has just began.

CNN Travel lists Schweitzer Mountain Resort as one of 7 Underrated Ski Resorts

CNN Travel lists Schweitzer Mountain Resort as one of 7 Underrated Ski Resorts, noting that it’s unlikely you’ll wait more than five minutes in the lift line, in a Feb. 24, 2012 feature

(CNN) — You’ve heard of Aspen, Jackson Hole and Whistler, but how about Copper Mountain, Grand Targhee and Revelstoke? These ski resorts may lack the buzz of their more glamorous neighbors, but they make up for it in snowfall, value and fewer crowds.

So hop on a lift before winter winds down.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort – British Columbia

Opened in 2007, Revelstoke has remained largely off the radar thanks to its relative inaccessibility in British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountain range. It’s a five-hour drive from Calgary and two hours from the nearest international airport, but it’s unlikely to stay that way for long. With some 60 feet of annual snowfall at the highest elevations, 5,620 feet of vertical — the longest descent of any resort in North America — and lift, cat-skiing and heli-skiing from one village base.

Make the most of the slopes

Copper Mountain – Colorado

Sandwiched between Breckenridge and Vail, Copper Mountain has long been a local favorite, but a new high-speed quad-lift and ski-in, ski-out lodging put it on par with its big-name neighbors. Naturally divided terrain separates skiers and snowboarders by ability, which gives the entire resort more elbow room. Bonus: Guests get free snow cat access on Tucker Mountain. The “High Four” deal this season packs in four days of skiing or riding for $234.

Grand Targhee Resort – Wyoming

Perched on the western slope of the Tetons, Grand Targhee is perfectly positioned to reap the lion’s share of powder from eastern-moving storms. “There can be times when Jackson Hole can receive zero snow and the Grand Targhee can get a foot,” says Dan Sherman, spokesman for Plus, he adds, “The terrain is fantastic.” This year, the resort is offering free skiing and snowboarding to lodge guests with a 2012 season pass to any ski resort in the United States or Canada to make up for the lack of snow elsewhere. Lodging typically starts at $99; adult lift tickets run $69.

Mad River Glen – Vermont

Stowe or Killington may be Vermont’s most recognizable resorts, but Mad River Glen best reflects the Green Mountain state’s independent streak. The cooperative-owned ski area doesn’t groom its trails, forbids snowboarding and keeps snowmaking to a minimum. “We prefer it from the heavens not the hoses,” says resort spokesman Eric Friedman. Ski magazine has ranked its terrain as the most challenging on the East Coast. The resort’s biggest claim to fame is its single-chair lift, the only one in North America. The mountain doesn’t own lodging, but there are plenty of classic ski lodges and cozy bed and breakfasts nearby, with rates from $85. Adult lift tickets start at $45.

Schweitzer Mountain Resort – Idaho

High up in Idaho’s panhandle nine miles outside of Sandpoint, Schweitzer isn’t as accessible as other West Coast resorts. As a result, it’s unlikely you’ll wait more than five minutes in the lift line. Then there’s the 2,900 skiable acres — more than neighbor Sun Valley. While the mountain is known for its off-trail skiing among the trees, the terrain varies from the bunny hill to steep, double-black pitches. The 6,400-foot summit affords skiers panoramic views of Idaho, Montana, Washington and Canada, as well as Lake Pend Oreille. Slopeside digs start at $164; adult lift tickets at $67.

Tignes, France

With its postcard-perfect Alpine scenery, breathtaking verticals and charming chalets, Val-d’Isère is one of the most beloved ski resorts in Europe. But Tignes, its neighbor in the L’Espace Killy — a ski area in France’s Tarentaise Valley named for famed alpine ski racer and native son Jean-Claude Killy — offers a similar experience and then some. A slew of off-beat activities like ice-kartingbungee-trampoline and ice-diving under a frozen lake appeal to families. Together, the resorts, which are linked by cable cars, tunneled funitels and gondolas, offer nearly 200 miles of runs serviced by 102 lifts.

Valle Nevado, Chile

Serious skiers know the season doesn’t end come summertime. It just shifts south of the equator. Come August, Valle Nevado Ski Resort, 35 miles northeast of Santiago, is blanketed in deep powder. Newer than the storied Chilean resort of Portillo, Valle Nevado has all the bells and whistles of most modern mountains, including the only high-speed quad lift in South America, a brand new gondola and an onsite heli-pad.

Backcountry skiing: Beauty and fear

At roughly $200 a shot and up to 4,500 feet of vertical in one run, heli-skiing is a relative bargain here. (Can’t wait for that first run? Hitch a chopper ride straight from Santiago. The resort will send your bags ahead). Lodging ranges from the budget Hotel Tres Puntas to the luxe Hotel Valle Nevado. Hotel Tres Puntas runs $2,266 for seven nights (Friday to Friday) for two people, including lift tickets.

Seven-night packages include two interconnect tickets to neighboring resorts La Parva and El Colorado, opening up 7,400 acres of skiable terrain.
