    Fees - how do your clients like them?

    I mostly do packages Luz, but agents are terrible control freaks lol. That is why I will do the hourly model if pushed, but they have to deal with my rate without questions if they want hourly. I won't negotiate down on it.

    Fees - how do your clients like them?

    Hi KaLioMele! I've been a REVA since late 2009, in real estate since 2004. I use a combination of fee structure for my clients. Some like hourly, and some like packages. I can do the packages because I know how long it takes me to do certain tasks, and then set the package rate accordingly. I...

    Question Where do most of your new clients come from?

    It's a 50/50 split from referrals from clients and from larger companies that have heard of me online.

    Is it a good idea to run a separate domain as a sub domain?

    Hi ladies! I am getting ready to purchase a second domain and wanted to run it as a sub domain so that I won't incur an extra hosting fee. My question is, is it going to hurt the domain to do it that way. The other question is that if I do that, do you have any good resources for how to...

    Thanks Amanda! I'm taking time this week to plan it all out. I know I will be subcontracting and I have 2 people lined up that I already know are excellent, so that isn't so much the issue. I just wondered how soon to start doing it or if I'm jumping the gun here. I hadn't originally planned to...

    REVA for more than one Real Estate Client?

    I have 2 agents in the same market and don't have any issues with it. I don't mention them to each other and I don't discuss what each of them is doing, nor have they asked me. They work in different offices, but they honestly are doing 2 completely different things with their marketing and...

    I have my profile on there, but I also have my rates listed at a professional level. I won't take less than that. I only ever got one project from Odesk, and it was for a blog post. When she contacted me to write more, I explained she would have to post again or something... she never did. But I...
