Boot Camp

Great Two-Day Boot Camp at Agent Rising

Agent Rising Real Estate School just completed their two-day Boot Camp on Friday and Saturday! It was a great two-day class at the Rise Welcome Center at 145 Fairhaven Road in Mattapoisett.

The Rise Welcome Center has undergone a renovation complete with standing tables, poufs on the floor with low tables, and conventional round table set up.

The energy  in the room was great.  People could rotate around the room and this helped with the 10 and a half hour days.  Instructor Kate Lanagan MacGregor  also included co-teaching with students in her instructor course.  This helped to shake it up a bit and add a little bit of variety to the classes.

She started the day off with a treasure hunt.  People in the room were mixed up so they were not with who they came with. Students really enjoyed it and said it was the highlight of the class.

All in all Kate felt it was a phenomenal class but they ran out of time.   A new change is opening  up the center for studying.  Students are excited to use the Agent Welcome Center for studying and are busy starting study groups to help prepare for their real estate exam.

real estate tool box

Real Estate Tool Box

What’s in your real estate tool box literally?  We have all kinds of real estate tools to help us in business, such as ipads and websites and apps for our phones we can use, but what about the actual day to day duties of being a real estate agent?

A reliable car is always a must and the more economical the better.  Realtors can rack up lots of miles in their day to day travels and keeping track of mileage at tax time is important.  You can keep  a log on your iphone or ipad and the Maps App will let you know the mileage if you use it to find your next destination.  A good old small notebook in the visor of your car can also perform the same duty if you are not as tech savvy.

There are always signs to put up when you get a new listing. Having a car to carry the signs can also be an issue. A small sledge hammer with a rubber head is a great tool for driving in the stake.  Zip ties are also essential for hanging signs on the posts, adding riders and fixing any broken parts.  A rider with your personal name and number is a great investment.

What about smoke detectors?  Many homeowners may need help with installing missing smoke detectors and a small battery-powered drill with a phillips bit can help  you easily install a battery-powered smoke detector.  Extra screws are always handy to keep in your tool box.  The ones that come with the smoke detectors can be easily lost.

A good bright flashlight is always a must when showing a house.  Whether you are the buyer’s agent or listing agent, the client may forget a flashlight to check out all the dark spots in the basement or attic.  You will always be prepared if you keep one in your car.

These are just some of the tools you may want to keep handy to keep your real estate day running smoothly.  There’s no more greater frustration than showing up to put up a sign at a listing and not having the tools to get it done.

Keep a tool kit in your trunk with all the essentials and you will be ready for any situation. Find a cute bag to put them all in so you are always prepared and looking stylish too!

Visit us a www.agentrising.com for more information on your real estate career. Our two-day Live BootCamp begins tomorrow, Friday, March 6th and continues on Saturday. Classes start at 8am and finish at 6:30pm both days.  It’s not to late to sign up.  Visit agent rising or call 508-997-8844 or instructor Kate Lanagan MacGregor at 508-728-3648.

winter storm

Winter Storm Tips

Even though it may seem like we’ve had a pretty easy winter so far, yesterday’s wind storm reminded us that we still have a lot of winter left whatever the Groundhog says.

The high winds and rain left many roads impassable with downed trees resulting in many power outages throughout the Southcoast.

While we can’t change the weather, here are some tips to be prepared for the next winter storm.

Keep an eye on the weather and weather alerts so you are not caught off guard when the next storm hits.

Check your home’s ability to keep out the cold, such as weatherstripping, insulation, and caulking to prevent frozen pipes and heat loss.

Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order.  Replace batteries if needed. These can be life-saving during a storm.

Loss of power is always a given.  Make sure you  stock up on essentials and flashlights with batteries. You may want to fill your tub for toilet flushing if you have a well.  Better yet, consider investing in a generator which can get you through many days without electricity.

Consider your elderly family and neighbors also.  Check on them and make sure they are ok and if they need assistance with any chores, especially snow shoveling.

Winter is still with us for a couple of months, so it’s always better to be prepared.

Agent Rising Real Estate School has your back and has everything you need to start your real estate career.  We also offer continuing education credits and classes for seasoned agents.  This includes broker and designation classes.
