Distressed Hotels, 2010 a forward thinking look from yours truly.

It's no secret that my operations have moved into the Hotel business again, however, this time it's hotel real estate and operations. I'd like to share with everyone why I've decided to focus on hotels.

I've always had a heart for hospitality. From being in the front lines at McDonald's learning their "fool-proof" system, to mid-size hotel operations and financial accounting, my spot was in Hotels. I also loved real estate. When I was working for a hotel, I managed to study…

The Now moment...or lack of it.

Lately, I'm finding myself (and I'm sure the other folks in this forum) a bit impatient regarding listings and REO's.

When REOPro announced their Realty Pilot, assigning REO's, referral fees, people jumped for joy and wanted it now!

When Excellen announced their survey was going out, I knew everyone would be excited like kids at a candy store waiting for a free hand out. It is wonderful to hear new developing news, but really, it's developing news!

When… Continue

Mark to market using Captcha to combat auto accepting software

I just received this in my email...

Dear Vendor,

As many are aware and have brought to our attention, it has become difficult in several areas to accept orders that have been sent out to numerous agents at once. We have received input from several agents regarding the use of auto-accepting/refreshing software to automatically accept orders and have addressed it accordingly.

In an effort to eliminate any unfair advantage produced by utilizing these so called… Continue

Q&A on Trulia

Did you know that you can participate in and become an expert voice as the local real estate professional?

If you don't know about this, you're missing out on a huge opportunity. It's said that people search for homes on the internet more than anywhere else nowadays. What Trulia (and Zillow) has done is bring a forum to the buyers/sellers and pros to bounce questions and ideas off each other. I've been doing this for the past year, and I'm not at all a power user on… Continue

So I bought a REOPro Shirt and now I have to blog about it.

When I got the REOPro email that t-shirts were available, I bought 2. Why am I blogging about it? Because I'm an independent broker and don't have my own logo'd shirts like the Prudential's, KW, CW, etc. I can get them, but usually embroiders recommend going bulk production in order to save money on a per shirt price. I just don't want to buy alot of shirts with my own company logo, it was simply too generic.

I think the REOPro shirts will generate more interest with people than my… Continue

Small Office or Major Corporate Brand to handle REOs?

Before I opened my own office, I was with a big named real estate company. I felt that being part of that corporate structure was something I wanted to experience. I've always been part of the small business world and truly never thought going corporate. However, two years ago I took my chance at a corporate office and here's my experience:

1. The corporate culture taught me lead generation, contract, escrow classes and such, but when you actually get down to the nitty gritty,… Continue

Bill to require REO sellers to pay for escrow

From the newsletter I received from The California Assocation of Realtors.

"C.A.R. Achieves Compromise in AB 957,

Choice of Escrow Bill

C.A.R. achieved a compromise in AB 957, “Choice of Escrow Bill.” In multiple discussions with the author, C.A.R. worked with Assemblywoman Galgiani to come up with compromise language that will require fair treatment for real estate owned (REO) buyers in the choice of title and escrow providers.

The new language now… Continue
