              A Day in the Life of a Realtor!

Every week our team meets in the office for accountability, support and to learn something new. To reenergize is something we need to do no matter what our profession is and most often your Realtor is pulling a magical miracle out of a deal to let you go on your way to your next adventure. Yes, they really are and they need to stay positive and engaged too.

In addition, our job is to generate new business each day and your referrals do help us to do that. Referrals are our lifeline. We have to be very structured about staying in touch with everyone so keeping our energy up by meeting together, learning pricing and negotiation skills or listening to a motivational podcast, is a must for us to keep running. These are just some of the things we do on a daily basis to serve you well.

So next time you speak with your Realtor and hopefully it will be one of the McAlister Properties Team...( because we are the best) ask them, "What do you do to stay up on real estate to sell my home in today's market?"  I know what my agents will say!

Experience will be a great foundation but building up from there is learning and adding something everyday. Sandy McAlister

Hi there,

Happy New Year! We had a great group here today for our 11AM Magic Monday Meeting. The agenda is attached. Patty scheduled Michael Pierce from Max Home Inspections to come in tell us about their great warranty programs in addition to all the inspections they offer. They service the entire state of Florida.

All the best for a blazing 2020! I am always here to help no matter what.

If you know of someone who would be a good addition to Mc Properties or Just RE let me know.

“Never make excuses. Your friends don’t need them and your foes won’t believe them.”

Cheers to you all! Sandy and the McTeam!

Florida is warm and waiting for YOU!

Amazing how enlightened I feel when I have met with my agents on our Magic Monday Synergy Meetings where we talk about our business but also our successes and solutions for our challenges. The knowledge that we have within our office encourages all to do their best and think a bit about what could be done differently to sell a listing or perhaps find that quirky property that a buyer is looking for. Nothing is off base and all can be laid right out on the table to talk about.

We toured a great 1/1.5 condo today in Jensen Beach w/ pool and clubhouse all ready for a snowbird or a scale down buyer. The front of the property looks out on a golf course and the lanai has a lake view which is charming.

We also toured a 3/2 home in Port St. Lucie that features 1785/2719 square footage and a 35X18 screened lanai. The open floor plan is so inviting it is spills out to the patio for that indoor/outdoor living that everyone is looking for.

If you know of someone that either of these homes might be the right fit. Let us know! We are never too busy for your referrals!  We have a pair of flip flops and shades ready for them!

Don’t get all wet. Prepare for the rainy season while it’s dry.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We know. The last thing you are thinking about at the summer barbecue is preparing for the stormy season. But it really is worth taking a look around your house during fair weather, because finding out you have a problem during inclement conditions is at best inconvenient and at worst very costly.
Check your rain gutters.
Clear them out and make sure they are in good working order to prevent damage to the roof or house.
Look at your roof.
If you see loose or damaged shingles, get them repaired. Look for tears and buckling on flashing. Check the chimney and look for damaged bricks, cap or cracked joints. Don’t forget the flashing there too.
Check indoors for signs of roof leaks.
Look for discoloration and peeling paint on ceilings and walls. Check in the attic for damp rafters.
Check the trees.
Trim back branches and cut sections that could fall in a rainstorm.
Check doors and windows.
Make sure there are properly insulated with weather stripping.
Look for water collecting at the base of the house.
Redirect water with trenches or drains.
Keep sandbags on hand.
if your area is prone to flooding, keep them filled and at the ready.
Check for erosion.
This is important if you live near a hillside. Shore them up if necessary.
