Three Goals... The Rome Way

 

The January contest is to pick three goals to pursue this year that are important me.

  

 

1. Specializing in unique properties

2. My daily blogging

3. My live radio show.

 

 

 

Commitment to unique homes. 

 

Unique homes Margaret Rome

 

I plan to go out to see a lot of these homes...the more unusual the better. I want to see these properties even if I'm not ready to list them. I want to see them if they are not planning to sell.

Just recently  met  home owners with a fabulous home... not ready to sell. However they reminded me that almost "everything is for sale at the right price."

Unique homes appeal to a different group of buyers.  Are you looking for something special...not a cookie cutter or cloneonial

For me...the more unique the property..the more exciting.

Buyers may not be able to describe the home they are looking for but they absolutely know when they find it. Unique homes tend to be on the market longer. They are waiting for the right buyer. They are not for everyone. Clients tell me...they knew it was the right place from the beginning...sort of love at first sight.

I love selling these homes with loads of personality. The most interesting people gravitate to these wonderfully special properties.

I want to know about them for my unique buyers.  I want to have sellers and  buyers, who want a unique property...to continue to think of me first!

 

 

Commitment to my weekly Radio show.

 

Margaret Rome Radio

 

Continue my track record. In 4 years, I've missed only one show. That's 52 weeks for the past four years!

I am always looking for new ways to make the weekly show interesting to the listening audience while promoting my active listings and getting new and unique properties to represent. I plan to have more of my clients as guests so we can talk about real live transactions.

If you  have an idea for the show, let me know.

Do you  have a topic or passion you would like to discuss?

 

 

Commitment to my daily blogging.

 

Blogging

 

 I have blogged since 2006 and when someone asks me if blogging works I give them this answer.

 

 

The combination of these three... blogging, unique properties and my live radio show will continue to keep my pipeline full while I continue to enjoy this fabulous real estate career.

Awesome goals . Your radio show is such great advertising for you, making you the resident expert. I love your attitude about seeing unique and different homes. I saw one today, built 1973, A-frame chalet style home, very cool design and wonderful renovation.

I love your title too, "The Rome Way"!!!!

Those are three very worthy goals, Margaret.  Here's to joy and success while achieving them.

Good morning Margaret. Must say, I like your choices. Enjoy your day!

I love unique homes and wish our housing stock had more of them. Cookie cutter homes appeal to so many folks, but not to me.

We are also big fans of unique properties - preferably those with views and some acreage. I like your goals and marketing plan for 2018 - they are sure to add up for your continued success - and happiness. D

Knowing your goals is the first step to succeeding. I wish you success this year.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Views and acreage are always a plus!

Maybe we could start a group for these unique properties. Let's talk.

Pat Champion Thank you for your good wishes!

 I wish, it is such a unique home and should grab a lot of attention. What a great home for doing open houses - every weekend!

Posted by David Wright, Real Estate Refined (Benchmark Realty, LLC) 10 months ago

David Wright Just remember, these unique homes are NOT for the masses.  Go out and get a couple of the unique properties and you will see how much fun it is and you get to meet very interesting buyers and sellers.

Susan Haughton We will have to keep finding these unique homes. The cookie cutter homes do sell!

Wayne Martin Always good to see you.

  you are so right. They take longer to sell and bring out the most interesting people. Makes for great presentations to shoppers.

Posted by David Wright, Real Estate Refined (Benchmark Realty, LLC) 10 months ago

David Wright I love the challenge and the reward when they sell. Just this morning I had a call from a client who thanked me again for making his move possible and another client called my radio this past Sunday sharing the long process of selling his unusual home.

Hi Margaret - sweet and simple goals - that's the way I like it too.  Unique homes are so fascinating....and you're so right, the most interesting people are attracted to unique homes. We've got a few in our area and they are fabulous with incredible views. I know you'll keep on keeping on - and then some in 2018!
