How To Sign PDF's using PDF Expert

 
PDF Expert by Readdle
Many times in real estate we need signatures fast and there is no scanner or fax machine available.  Here in Las Vegas, we also have many out of state clients that can't visit our office easily.  In those cases, we would use Docusign for electronic signatures.  However, even though electronic signatures are legal Nevada, some banks  and institutions do not accept them.  When we cant use Docusign, we use PDF Expert and an iPad or iPhone as an alternative to get signatures quickly.

5 Things That Can Mess Up your Home Purchase

5 Things That Can Mess Up your Home Purchase
 
Our lender once shared a story about a client that quit his job a week before close of escrow.  He didn't tell anyone about his big change as he figured it wasn't a problem.  On the day that the home was suppose to close, the lender made one last check with his old employer to confirm employment.  When they realized he had quit, they stopped the funding and cancelled the loan instantly, as he could not qualify any more.

The Three P's are not a proven way to list your home!

When I was a new agent, one of my mentors said, "Don't be one of those agents that just follows the Three P's when listing a home.  It is not a proven way to list your home".  Of course, I had to know what that meant, so he said...

Put it on the MLS
Put up a sign
Pray to the East

Is Queensridge the best high rise condo tower in Las Vegas? 


I get the question all the time asking "What's the best condo Tower in Las Vegas?"  That, of course, depends on many factors like price, location and amenities.  My personal favorite is One Queensridge Place.  Unlike many condo towers close to or on the strip, including Mandarin OrientalVeerThe MartinPanoramaPalms PlaceTurnberry Place and TowersSky and Allure, Queensridge is on the West side of town.  What else sets Queensridge apart from the Strip Condos?  Simple.  It feels like a 'custom home in the sky'.

Real Estate, Reviews and the Death of Angie's List

Real Estate, Reviews and the Death of Angie's List

Each day we are being reviewed more and more by our clients and this is fundamentally changing many industries, including Real Estate.  Thanks to social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, it will be harder and harder to 'hide' if you are a service provider that doesn't put your clients first.  This could spell trouble for services like Angie's List - unless they are able to adapt to the changing landscape.

Searching for The Best Real Estate Agent - Sometimes the Top Guys Suck

Searching for The Best Real Estate Agent - Sometimes the Top Guys Suck

America's Best Real Estate Agents
While searching on the internet, I happened to see Realtrends list of America's Best Real Estate Agents.  In creating this list, they used only one metric - number of sales - to determine the 'best' real estate agents in the country.  Now that I have been an agent for many years in Las Vegas, I realized that while production level is a good metric, it isn't always a great indicator by itself.  In fact, sometimes, the top guys
really suck.
