Young millennials are like no homebuyer that has come before. Challenged by affordability, inspired by a gig economy, and being the first generation who really gets work/life balance, Millennials are the most flexible of all homeowner types, but it isn’t about price necessarily - it is about value and having the right space.
This week in Market Survival Guide: NAR lawsuit fallout and a history of housing market histrionics, mortgage interest rate changes, rental income from ADUs now allowed on FHA mortgages, regional median prices and market analysis, new construction and builder confidence, changing building starts nationally, employment, 60+ day inventory and other opportunities for real estate agents.
Whether 2023 was rubbish or one of your best ever, it’s time to look ahead! This Tuesday, coach Denise will be discussing the critical things you can do to prepare for the coming year, starting with essential year-end MLS knowledge, market, and business opportunities to watch for, and actions you can start taking now that will grow and sustain you.
If you are unaware of what new construction in your area is planned for the coming years and how that will affect you, your buyers, and your sellers, then you may be blind to an important piece of your local market and big opportunities! Learn how to spot opportunities for business growth, and how to get plugged-into your local developer community!
Faux markets, bubble markets, crashing markets - how do you read market data and recognize when your MLS isn’t telling you the whole story? Denise shows you how to pull all the puzzle pieces together and learn a skill that both benefits your clients and could be critical to your business success.
With so many moving parts, money, and emotions all in one transaction, there will almost always be a moment of conflict: an tough inspection report, a buyer reluctant to share their financial truth, sellers that wants you to charge less, or difficult showing conditions. Denise walks you through solutions to these conflicts and more, so you can navigate them with confidence!
Today’s buyers and move-up sellers face big challenges to getting the right financing to buy. Denise and branch manager Drew Ebner of Revolution Mortgage take a deep dive into creative financing solutions that buyers who need a loan should consider.

If your buyer is in a high demand area, there is a lot they can do, and may need to do, to win a listing: from compromises on buying expectations, to making a strong offer, to negotiating terms, but the trick is deciding what is best for the buyer. In this episode, Denise shares how to talk about buyer strategies with your clients.
Do you wonder about pricing or get a knot in your stomach before each listing goes to market, worrying whether pricing recommendation was too high - or was it too low? Denise knows how to price property right the first time and you can’t just do it by looking at comps, square footage, or what other neighborhood homes have sold for.

Many areas are plentiful with sellers who, for one reason or another, were unable to complete a sale – and expired listings can be golden for agents with a plan! Today we are discussing how to identify, market to, and sustain the trust of expired listings.
One of the most effective ways that real estate agents can regain control over their time is by working with more sellers, but how do you make the pivot? Whether you are thick with buyers and need to make a change or just curious what it would take to find and capture more listings, join us as Denise covers a variety of ways that agents can attract listings.
Some buyers in your pipeline have completely unrealistic views of the market. They think that prices are going to plummet, that interest rates will drop back to 3%. They may be irritated that sellers have gained so much equity and, in their view, are greedy. Should you remove them from your pipeline or is there a way to get them to see the light?
Every agent has buyers and sellers sitting on the fence, so join us for a Potential Client Conversion workshop! At this client conversion workshop, agents brought their biggest potential client challenges for Denise's conversion strategy.
