Your Last Post Was 2012?

True story! Blogging takes a lot of time? I post a few things over on I could repost, but does that help or hurt? That’s about the extent of an excuse / reason I can give you.  Unless you want me to tell you I’ve been focused on other areas of my business which […]

MLS® System review

The Central Alberta REALTORS® Association recently changed MLS® systems.  More specifically the software that enables us to share listings among members and publish them to websites such as was changed. Big Deal? Well actually it is a big deal.  We’ve been using the same software for the past 10 years.  As a result our members were […]

Real Estate Questions?

Each week I’ve been responding to various questions on our Century 21 Blog. The following are some of the posts: What time frame do most buyers want to move in? I get that question quite often.  We see a whole variety of dates and requests for a possession date for buyers.  Probably the most common […]

Mobile Real Estate

Our Century 21 Canada technology gurus rolled out our latest search App on the Android platform to complement the already popular iPhone App. It’s pretty slick, in my humble biased opinion. 😉 I have tried both as I have a Goggle Nexus One Android phone (now relegated to occasional use) and the latest iPhone 4S.  Yes I’m […]

Are We Balanced Yet?

2011 has been a transition year for sure.  Coming off of string buyer market conditions we are beginning to see signs of balanced market conditions.  However we’re not fully there yet.  Not all price ranges are displaying the same market conditions and regionally the hyper local real estate markets are vastly different.  For now I’ll be focusing on Red Deer. November 2011 is seasonally a […]

The Best Time To Move Is?

It should be no secret that the busiest season in Red Deer real estate is April, May and June.  The answer to the question then would be the second quarter of any given year, or is that merely the popular time and not necessarily the best time to move? 2011 closely resembles a typical Red Deer real […]

September 2011 A Balanced Market?

End of September heralds in the fall market, and the closing of the third quarter for MLS® statistics.  Here in Red Deer residential sales have been positive for year over year growth and the supply side, namely listings, has decreased year over year.  When we started 2011 our expectations were for modest growth and a […]

Is Your Social Media Influencial?

You’ve sampled the Kool Aid and you’ve got a Twitter account and a Facebook page for business, but are you using them correctly or at all? Many REALTORS® have jumped on the social media band wagon after attending a conference or listening to some great speaker and now they have all the accounts set up.  […]

Sales and Goals

From the outside being a real estate agent seems easy. I’m reminded of one of the poster boards set up near a drink station on the Drumheller Half Marathon which read “If it were easy, we would do it”. That sign was at the 11 km mark of the 21 km run.  Made me smile and added […]
