The Daily Life of a Real Estate Broker

June 25 2008 Jim W Hildreth Broker RE/Max of Sonora.

Today started early 6:30 am as my usual routine is to read about a 6 online newspapers. The Modesto & Sacramento Bee, The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, The Oakland Tribune, KTVU & KCBS, I also like to read the headlines of the NY Times.I scan for business articles, trends about real estate and I really enjoy local news. One of those local papers is the Calaveras Enterprise.

As I write this it looks like I'm a "News Junkie"

I responded to multiple e-mails about real estate and I made connection with a buyer, who was required to "Prove" cash fundsfor an offer that we wrote on his behalf. The buyers are a married couple who want to have a second home in Sonora and they live in Watsonville.

I find that many buyers are thinking of a retirement location.The afternoon was filled meeting a contractor buyer, meeting an appraiser on a home and family facing pre-foreclosure and fielding calls from MLS agents on various properties.One of the afternoon calls was from Berkeley Buyers on making a counter offer on their behalf as a Buyers Broker

In addition, I recieved a call from a CPA that they would like to schedule an appointment and determine value on a Sonora Home which is an estate.One of my specialities is Probates.

I also put on my Real Estate mediation hat and before I left the office I wrote 25 attorneys in Stanislaus County (Modesto) offering my Real Estate Mediation Services.With my 32 years of Real Estate Experience, Mediation credentials, I can offer parties in disputes many alternatives

Its now 7:30 pm and with these Hot California day's evening watering is a must.Jim W
