The self-sufficiency and perseverance displayed by some of The Real Estate Cafe’s clients is simply amazing! This particular client, an out of state buyer, has viewed over 5,000 pages of MLS listings via our self-service "virtual office website (VOW). Needless to say, that would be an exhausting and expensive task if one of our agents were doing the work. Instead, the buyer does their own work, making the process more efficient and less expensive for themselves.
One of our goals is to invite our clients, and blog readers, to share their perspectives on the housing market, neighborhoods, and "extreme househunting" techniques they have developed on their own. As comments come in, we’ll share them here so check back often. If you are already one of our clients, call us at 617-661-4046 or email RECafe@mac.com to find out how you can earn commission rebates by posting comments to this blog. True to the metaphor of a cafe, we call it The Real Estate Cafe’s "Tipping Policy."
Wouldn’t you love to talk to another home buyer who has looked at 5,000 homes online? That’s the kind of peer-to-peer conversation The Real Estate Cafe is hoping to host online and off in 2005 via this blog and our upcoming series of educational and networking events. Stay tuned for more information.
