Welcome to FWL where this week! At a glance for this week >  tool to compete in this market + battle of the barristers is coming! + old NWMLS Forms are now out the door + welcome the 2017 NWMLS Forms revisions + a weekend cure for the winter blues + content delivered to you on a silver platter) + Tune Up sets your table...let’s sweep and see what we can digest, together.

Competing in this market requires us doing a masterful job in educating buyers and sellers. If you attended the Larry Kendall event earlier this month he shared with us a strategy + tool to help in this process. It was a one-sheet developed by one of his very successful brokers in Fort Collins. I’ve taken the “tool” and modernized it to our local marketplace, along with feedback from several of you…a quick glance below, your manager has the one-pager to drop in your toolbox where you deem fit.


A few suggestion is use > buyer packets + seller packets + a worksheet in preparing a strong offer + specifically a worksheet to help your buyer prospects determine if they are fit for this market – aka, have the stomach and abilities to compete – all part of the process.


Join me! I’m so excited to attend this event. I’ve heard such great things and each year it fills up and I’m out of luck. Thanks to Eastlake’s Eva Conner and Michael Nelson for the reminder I will not miss this year! Friday, March 24, 2017 | 9-noon

Yes indeed, February 23rd 2017 has come and gone!  Why should we care? Answer: our 2017 NWMLS Form revisions are here + the old forms out the door. As a reminder, the homepage of the NWMLS has all the goods – Legal Bulletin 209 (start here!) and my favorite – pull the “red-lined” forms in a PDF version and actually SEE what has been changed (hint: this is a 119 page document).***No doubt your office will break these down with you – in the meantime for those that would like to get ahead of what is NOW in our market, Annie Fitszimmons begins to break it down for us…
