Hello again folks, sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. I trust everyone has been enjoying their summer, then winding down and getting back into the groove of life this fall. I've been keeping busy with both Real Estate as well as my technology duties here at Summa Realty. I am known around the office as the "Director of Technology" as I help guild our company's tech choices and integrate those with our existing systems. That probably sounds more hi-tech than it really is, but the point is we continually work hard to keep everyone here as up to date as possible with what's available.

So, on to what I really wanted to talk about today…

I recently put together a new website aimed at helping home owners in my immediate area (Beaverton, OR). And that website is… (drum roll please)…

I have an a few freebies available, like an automated, quick and dirty Competitive Market Analysis (CMA), as well as a complimentary Staging DVD. The CMA will give you a rough idea of what other homes are selling in your area and for how much. I can personally provide a much more detailed and accurate analysis, which I am more than willing to do. The free staging DVD is a great way for potential home sellers to get an idea of how to prepare their home for sale as well as what to expect during the 'showing' period.

Also on the website you will find links to search for homes, my own contact info and website, as well as our other Summa Realty agents. That may seem a bit strange to offer a link to other Realtors, right? The way I see it is that let's be honest, not all of us mesh with each other in quite the way that we'd like. We may get along just fine, but maybe you're looking for someone that just 'fits' your personality better… and I get that. So I think it only fair to provide you with options. If we don't end up working together, ideally I would like to see you work with a fellow Summa agent. How many other Realtors have told you that?!?! I'm guessing not many. While we are our own businesses, we are still a great team and love to work together and share the wealth, and I hope folks recognize and respect that.

That said, I hope you take a few moments to check out the site, click through some of the pages and feel free to let me know what you think!

Thanks for the time and talk to ya'll again soon!
