If you follow Howard Brinton and his Star Power Series the name Kevin Hildebrand is a name you probably already know. Kevin and I talk or e-mail each other at least once a day to share our daily experiences and we are sounding boards for one another. If you do not have a real estate agent outside of your market that you can brainstorm with I highly recommend making this type of connection with someone. The value you will bring to each other is very empowering because if you both share common goals you can easily motivate each other. We have both found that by having someone you are accountable with it makes you go the extra mile each week which inturn causes you to stretch and grow beyond what you would do on your own.
Tonight Kevin and I met in Columbus Ohio at Easton Town Center to discuss some new creative ideas we have been kicking around for a couple of months. We both recognize that the real estate business is changing and how important it is for us to deliver results beyond what our clients expect. We discussed the fact that creative financing, educating our buyers and sellers to the current market conditions and making sure our clients homes are in show ready condition are more critical today than ever before. Equally important is helping our buying clients get the absolute best and most solid mortgage preapprovals and financing package that meets their specific needs and financial goals. For the seller it is a great time to sell their current home and move up in value to a larger home and at the same time it is an ideal time for a first time buyer to invest in their first home. 2008 will prove to be potentially the best real estate opportunity the state of Ohio has ever seen.
