I Don’t! What to Do When Clients Divorce
Tuesday, June 05, 2018
Written By: Victoria Reviel

According to government statistics, 1,200,000 couples get divorced each year and a whopping 61 percent of all divorcees end up having to list their home for sale.  This is an emotional and difficult time to need to sell a home.  Keep calm, stay professional and negotiate with both spouses so you can help them to get the home sold and each of them can go their separate ways and start anew.

Going Small, Tiny or Micro!
Monday, May 07, 2018
Written By: Victoria Reviel

Tiny is the new buzzword in any discussion about affordable housing. We all are happy that home values in Central Texas are on the rise, but along with that comes other issues; increased property taxes, lack of affordable re-sale homes and the cost of new home construction has also risen substantially in the last several months, making it more difficult for those first-time home buyers.

Written By: Victoria Reviel

I am incredibly humbled and honored to serve the members of WCREALTORS as the President in 2018. I have been involved with the Williamson County Association of REALTORS® for almost 20 years, and I am ecstatic at the direction our Association is headed. Our 2017 Board of Directors, led by Suzanne Gantner did an exceptional job, and I am looking forward to building on these achievements.

In case you missed the Annual Installation & Awards Banquet on December 7th, it was a magical night; not only did we get real snow in Williamson County, we also had a great night celebrating with almost 300 real estate professionals as we recognized those who helped make 2017 a success.

2017, A Year in Review
Friday, December 01, 2017
Written By: Suzanne Gantner

WCREALTORS has been a productive place this year with an astronomical amount of growth and change! It feels just like yesterday that our 2017 Board of Directors were installed, and a year has already completed, just in the blink of an eye.  What all happened at WCREALTORS in 2017? A better question would be “What didn’t?”.

The Association hosted close to 2,000 students in various classes and educational seminars this year. A huge thank you to all of our instructors and professional development committee who helped make this possible.  Furthermore, would you believe that almost 1,000 people attended Association events in 2017? We had our first experience with the Super Bowl of Builders being held off-site at the Dell Diamond and had record number with over 500 folks attending.

Creating Client Satisfaction

Written By: Suzanne Gantner

“Great Job.” “Thanks for all your help.” “You did a fabulous job!” “You got us a fantastic deal.” “Your time is truly appreciated.”

Isn’t it nice to hear those words?  It feels good, doesn’t it? I know it isn’t something everyone hears all the time, but it sure feels good when someone acknowledges you for your hard work.

The Scary Things We See in Real Estate
Tuesday, October 03, 2017
Written By: Suzanne Gantner

Since Halloween is coming up, we thought it would be fun to talk about some creepy and scary things that we go through when selling Real Estate. These things don’t happen all the time, usually, it’s business as usual but when they do, you don’t forget it.

First thing I would like to address is when we have a scary client. You know the kind, they follow behind you…. breathing down your neck, questioning your every statement and then decide you aren’t the expert they are. They then decide to voice their opinion on everything and it is always negative. These people are called energy drainers, they just wear you out and down.

Leadership
Monday, September 04, 2017
Written By: Suzanne Gantner

Leadership is a term that is commonly used, but almost impossible to define. That’s part of the problem with leadership development, it means something different to every person, a true definition is hard to find. However, when a person steps up with leadership abilities, it’s amazing how everyone can point at him/her and say, “that’s a leader.”  The most commonly identified trait in a leader is integrity; without it, no one will want to follow.

For me, a leader is someone you are drawn to follow; someone who stands out to you in many different ways, and exhibits the strengths you deem necessary to make a difference.  Why is all of this important to REALTORS®?  Everyone leads at some point in their life, whether professionally, personally, or in their community.  Do you have what it takes to answer the call to lead?
