Today, we’ll discuss three important characteristics to look for when hiring a real estate professional.

  1. Updated credentials: Typically, an agent starts as a Realtor. Then they can get further credentials, like a relocation certification to help people move nationwide. Agents might also be VA reps, meaning they have a lot of experience helping veterans move and navigate the VA loan process.

  2. Full-time versus part-time employment: You need a full-time agent. An agent who is working two or more jobs won’t have time to meet with vendors, go to showings, or look for homes for you. Full-time agents will be there whenever you need them, and they are working hard behind the scenes to make sure you have a successful transaction. 
  3. Testimonials and reviews: You can simply click here to read testimonials about how I conduct my business. You should look for reviews from past clients, vendors, and other agents to get a clear idea of what it will be like to work with that agent.

Raise Money for a Great Cause at This Fun Event

Today, I want to take a step back and focus on something I'm very passionate about: charity events.

An upcoming event is called A Night to Remember, presented by the Women's Council of Realtors. The event will raise money to support women in real estate and the educational programs WCR offers them. Also, a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Alzheimer's Orange County.

One of the things you’ll see at this event is the 6th Annual Fashion Show. Six men and six women, some of whom are industry professionals, will be walking the catwalk. In the audience, vendors will participate with sponsorships that are available.

The fashion show takes place Wednesday, May 11, 2016, from 5pm to 9pm. This is a great event because it’s a great opportunity to relax, enjoy the food and champagne, and participate in a lot of different auction events. With your $75 ticket purchase, you have a chance to win an auction weekend with Jaguar, where you and a friend can drive up the coast of Southern California.

There are a few great fashion sponsors that will be present at the event, including Jos. A. Bank for the men and White House Black Market for the women! It’s sure to be a fantastic time.

If you’re interested in learning more about this spectacular event, or if you have any real estate related questions of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I would love to hear from you!
