spring lawn care

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring is rapidly approaching.  We may still get some snow but it will likely melt quickly.  Now is a great time to start thinking about spring landscaping maintenance.

The snowdrops and crocuses are starting to spring up and green daffodil shoots are sprouting up through the leaves.  Now is the time to start working on your landscaping.

Start by raking the lawn and flowerbeds.  Rake up the fall leaves, dead grass and sticks that have fallen down from the trees with the high winds. Uncover all the green shoots hidden under the leaves in your flowerbeds.  It may be a good time to add fresh mulch to your flowerbeds.  Weed and then mulch.

Test your soil ph and fertilize your lawn accordingly. Weed and feed but don’t overdo it.

Aerate your lawn so water and nutrients are better absorbed.  There are many ways to do this.  You can opt for aeration shoes and get some exercise or rent a larger tool.

Fill in any bare spots in the lawn.  Rake them up and dig up the soil a little. If needed, add loam and reseed.  Keep the seeds wet and watered. Pick the right seeds for your area of the country.

Now is the time to get the lawn mower out and have it serviced or check the fluids and fuel yourself.  Drain any old fuel out which has set all winter.

Wait to cut the grass until it is tall enough.  Cutting too short and too often is not good for the lawn. Always cut the top third of the blade of grass and don’t bag it.  If you mow on a regular basis, the clippings are good for the lawn.

It’s a great time of year to get outside and work on your landscaping and keep your home looking it’s best for spring.

Have you always dreamed of becoming a real estate agent and helping clients buy or sell their homes.  Spring is a great time to get started.  Start with our online courses and finish with LIVE hours to finish your requirements to sit for your real estate exam.  Our Rise Welcome Center in Mattapoisett is busy with students preparing for their real estate license.

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.

Realtor Safety Issues

Realtor safety is always an important issue. It’s always a good time to revisit steps to prevent tragedy. Realtors can be put in dangerous situations during Open Houses and showings and need to be aware of steps to take to keep themselves safe.   Here are some tips for common realtor situations.

Make sure at least one personal contact and your office knows where you are at all times.  You should let them know where you will be and when you feel you will be done.  Check in when you move on.

Meet new clients at the office first before any private showings.  Have them complete a client information sheet and copy their driver’s license and vehicle information.

Open Houses:  Have another realtor or co-worker share the duties with you and set up a sign in sheet with client’s information.

During open houses and showings, let your client proceed you through the house, especially when going down into the basement or upstairs.  Keep them in your line of vision at all times.

Park on the street to be able to leave easily.  Do not let a client block you in the driveway.  Drive around the neighborhood and acquaint yourself with the layout,  be aware of the easiest and fastest exit routes.

Know all the exits to the home and make sure they are all unlocked.

Leave your purse and valuables in the trunk of your car and have your cell phone in your hand.  Leave the expensive jewelry at home.

Never allow a client into your car unless you know them very well and feel very  comfortable.

Check out the safety apps for your phone.  Have the local police department saved on your phone and have them ready to respond at the touch of a button.

Last but not least, trust your gut.  If a situation makes you uncomfortable or makes you uneasy, remove yourself  and reschedule.  Your job is not worth your safety.

family time

Real Estate and Family Time

Juggling your real estate career and your family time can be tricky but definitely worth it.  There are many ways to accomplish this.

Make family time an appointment.  When you have an important family event simply treat it as an appointment and tell clients you are booked at that time.  Give them another time to meet.  Most will understand.

At the beginning of  the year, plan your vacation  and pre- book family time and stay committed to it.

Have a friend in the office that can help you out when you have conflicts in your schedule. This can be reciprocal, when he is in need of help also.   There are times when time is of the essence.  If you are unavailable, have someone at the office who can cover for you and you can do the same for him or her when they need a hand.

Set aside one day per week to get away from work and spend quality family time.  We all need some downtime. With the craziness of the business, you always find yourself on the phone at all hours of the day.  Stay committed to spending one day a week without the phone and enjoy uninterrupted family time.

Share your work  with your family.  Talk about your highs and lows.

Put aside time for family dinner.  Real estate agents aren’t doctors.  Phone calls can wait an hour while you have dinner with your family.

Sometimes it may cost you a client or two, but in the course of your career, if  you take the time to keep your family foremost in your life, it will make you a better realtor and clients will respect you for that.

Please visit us at www.agentrising.com for more ideas on how to make your real estate career shine. We are committed to helping all agents R.I.S.E. in their real estate career. Call 508-728-3648 and talk to Kate.
