Home of the no risk contracts. When you let us help you buy your new home we will allow you to cancel the contract at anytime. The number one reason buyers who are thinking of moving into a new area are hesitant to sign up with Real Estate Agent is they are afraid of the long term contract that locks them in to that agent for months. Now we’ve removed that problem. We will allow you to cancel the contract at anytime. If we are not living up to what you expect from a realtor or if for some reason you change your mind we will cancel the contract that day. Now that’s peace of mind.

Is your HOA making you pull your hair out? Communication is poor to say the least in some HOA’s.
If you believe HOAs are police states with warlord boards you are not alone. As often as not, homeowners with a "my-home-is-my-castle" mentality disregard rules and regulations to challenge the HOA. Boards that are confronted by these challenges can react with defiance. Anger begets defensiveness, which invites retreat or counter attack.
Few boards have the ability to communicate well.
What is communication? According to Webster's, "communication" is "to have or hold intercourse or interchange of thoughts; to give, or give and receive, information, signals or messages in any way, as by talk, gestures, writing, etc." Here are some tips to improve HOA communications:
Take a class on dealing with difficult people. These are offered through various sources, such as local community colleges, where mediation skills are taught, web courses and books in the local library.
Learn active listening. This is actually listening and paying attention when a person is talking to you. This technique doesn't mean that you agree or disagree with what is being said; it simply lets them know that you hear them.
Learn how to release the pressure. Visualize an angry person like a balloon that is blown up to its maximum. It can't take any more pressure without popping. Now imagine letting some of that air out by listening to a belligerent person for a few minutes. Once people feel like they have "had their say," the more open they are to receiving ideas and compromising.
Don't form assumptions about right or wrong. If you already have your mind made up, compromise is more difficult.
Respond to communications in a business like way and without anger. Ignoring communications from an owner who has an ax to grind often leads to more and stronger demands and possibly personal attacks.
Count to ten. Take a walk, a break or a breather before you react. Answers given in anger rarely solve the issue and usually make the situation worse.
The art of surviving each other in an HOA environment has long term benefits which can help grow neighbors and friendships. This is an art worth perfecting, especially if you are in a position of leadership and authority.

If you ever have any questions or need help with any real estate needs or know someone who does please feel free to call or email me anytime. I would love to have the opportunity to be your neighbor and realtor.

I never force a seller to continue to use me as their agent if they are not comfortable with my style or methods. I will allow you to cancel our contract at anytime you are not happy with me or you just change your mind.

Please feel free to call or email me anytime.
