Update on move..

Our last day in our current office will be Friday, October 28, 2016.  We will be homeless for a time as we are a little behind with build out.  I will probably have receptionists working remotely from home until we complete the build / move.  I am guessing it will be sometime the week of November 7th that we can move in (possibly the weekend following).  The men I have working on the project have been great but I underestimated the time it would take and Cleveland Home Title is taking occupancy of our space the weekend of 10/29.  The space is turning out real nice and I believe it will make a nice new home for us when complete.  I ran our new address through CDyne and this is the proper postal address:

WESTLAKE, OH 44145-1480

We will forego the November office meeting due to the complexities surrounding the move.

My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. 

I will keep you informed.

Thank you,


On Second Thought..

It will probably be best to wait until we complete construction of the space and move in before showing to you vs. showing you while under construction.  Again, we are scheduled to move in at the end of October so I will let you know after the dust settles.  My apologies for confusion.  BGW

Hey Pros:

I closed on the office condo and we will be moving to our new office space at the end of October.  I plan to have you out to see the space prior to moving.  There won't be much to show you when I do but I will have a floor plan on the wall for you to reference.  I will also fill you in on decor and other touches.  More to come..



NEW TIME: Our next office meeting is Tuesday, 10/4 at 10:00am..

Linda & Barb thought it would be good if I post the following housekeeping items:

When mailing earnest money checks to the escrow company please include the property address so we/they don't struggle trying to figure out what deal it is for..  When our staff mails it for you, they include the earnest money letter if we have it or an enclosure with the address of the deal and your name.  

The Data Collection Sheet needs to be completed for us to enter into the home warranty cos. system before the deal closes in order for you to get paid per RESPA.  If we don't get it to the home warranty company you don't gat paid and we only police the deal prior to closing.

When requesting that your listing goes to Contingent Status, please supply the contract date and the reason for the contingency as they are required fields and we can't change status without them.  Below please find reasons for contingency:

Court Approval
House Sale
Other – See Remarks
Short Sale

Thank you!


Something I plan to try that I thought might be of interest to some of you..

I came across this motivational speaker and viewed a video of his explaining his Five 50-Minute Habits That Get You 30% More Productive (and Energized).  I know nothing of him but after reviewing the video briefly do believe that these habits could be a good thing.  The one thing I disagree with is doing all five of them at once.  I will try one for a week or two and if it makes sense do my best to maintain it and then move on to the second one, try that one for a week or two and well you get the idea.  Here is link to VIDEO if you care to view to see if you are interested.  Thanks, BGW

Need your help..

Linda leaves at 5:00PM on Fridays so please do what you can to get things in well in advance of office closing so she can get it done for you.  Last minute and beyond office hours won't be tended to until Monday.  Thanks very much, BGW

When one agent writes an offer for two or more different buyers at the same time on the same property the rules have changed on how to handle.  This ARTICLE explains the rules in a general way.  The article was written before the law was passed so hoping a more detailed article will be forthcoming.  Thanks, BGW

Seller occupying after closing..

The above topic has been raised on a couple occasions and so I contacted my insurance person to look in to it.  It is best that the seller maintain their homeowner's insurance after closing up until they move out so they are covered on their contents and for liability purposes.  If they will be staying longer than approximately 14 days (extended time such as 30 days or 60 days) they should have a renter's policy.  Thanks, BGW

Gae brought this to my attention and so I thought I'd pass along for those of you who didn't know.  Here is LINK to law.  Thanks, BGW
