What’s Trending in Real Estate Today?

real-estate-services-concierge#TrendyTuesday

Q: What is a Real Estate Concierge?

A: When I think of a concierge I imagine being taken care of, someone you can go to for help when things are unfamiliar or feeling overwhelmed. I coined the name “Home Concierge” for my Real Estate Concierge service package to evoke that feeling of someone being there to give you support, as well as to showcase the versatility and unique services I provide to real estate professionals.

Q: Who can benefit most from using a Real Estate Concierge?

A: Any realtor or real estate broker who is looking to grow their business, someone who may be strong in all other aspects of their business but doesn’t have an eye for reading a home for a particular market, someone who has a good client base but not enough hours in the day to get things done, or a realtor just starting out that needs a little help in marketing their services.

Q: How is it cost-effective?

A: I think if you look at the overall cost of hiring a full-time assistant, and all the costs associated with one versus contracting me on an as-needed basis you can see the cost-effectiveness pretty easily. I think flexibility is important, and I offer my services by project, monthly retainer, or hourly. There are no commitments and no hidden costs.

Here is how I can help . . . 

  • Confirm that all documentation has the appropriate signature and dates
  • Work closely with the selling agent to retrieve any and all documents needed to close the files
  • Responsible for verifying all properties have been entered into the agent’s system
  • Cleaning & Organization of home, prep/set-up estate sale
  • Errands & Tasks – dry cleaners, shopping, etc.
  • Open homes for Showings, Photography, Open house
  • Pre-Showing set-up: arrange the home for an Open House or Showing to bring out the best features of the home
  • Plan and coordinate open houses, broker tours/launch parties, and other events
  • Home Staging & Redesign service of the space(s)
  • Regularly update and maintain communication with clients, agents, title companies, lenders, etc.
  • Keep track of critical dates and send weekly reminders to the agents as related to real estate project/account
  • Interact with clients and staff in a professional, responsible, reliable, and friendly manner, at all times

Pre-staging a home prior to listing – CC Home Concierge Company works with your client to eliminate clutter and improve the appeal of the home to potential buyers.

Residential organizing before or after a move. Prior to a move, CCHC works with your clients to declutter. This improves the look of the home and saves your clients from paying to move things they don’t need.

A move-in is also a good time to get organized. CCHC helps clients unpack, get organized and back to normal quickly. A CCHC gift certificate makes a nice closing gift. 

Move coordination and project management. We work with busy families and professionals to coordinate and manage the details of their move. We can apply our organizational system for project planning and execution, a high level of customer support and network with local service providers to help clients enjoy a low-stress, on-time move.

Service for special needs. All transitions come with a level of stress. Some can be more stressful than others if they are forced upon you because of an unexpected change of events, death in family or health changes that require moving and downsizing or the closing of estates.

Cheryl has been a Professional Organizer for 25 years and has worked with clients in a variety of situations to create a respectful and thoughtful approach to solving problems, decluttering, down-sizing or estate-closing.

Peace Harmony & Happy Home Making!

Caregivers: Are You Taking Care Of You In order To Take Care Of Others?

elderly couple 1

15 Tips for reducing stress and promoting health for family and friends who providing the caregiving:

 

  1. Take a break from caregiving.
  2. Make a date to go to the movies, take a walk, meet a friend for lunch. Everyone needs to get out of the house once in a while.
  3. Do something not related to caregiving.
  4. Get support. Attend a support group, have a friend you can call just to let off steam and complain.
  5. Depression is treatable. Talk to your doctor about it. Or seek counseling.
  6. Practice communication and behavior management skills if you are caring for someone with dementia.
  7. Relax. Read a book, meditate, pray, garden, knit, get a massage, take a long bath.
  8. Take care of your health. Go to the doctor, get routine exams and flu shots, get enough sleep and eat your fruits and vegetables.
  9. Change “guilt” to “regret.” Guilt means you did something wrong, regret is that you are in a difficult situation and sometimes you have to make difficult decisions, but they are not wrong.
  10. Forgive yourself — often.
  11. You cannot be a perfect caregiver, all day, every day.
  12. Laugh. Find ways to keep your sense of humor by sharing a silly story with a friend, watching a funny show or movie, or join a group to try laughter yoga exercises.
  13. Exercise. Walk around the neighborhood. Or even better, recruit a friend to walk with you.
  14. Sign up for an online or in-person yoga class. Join a Zumba class or line dancing class.
  15. Ask for and accept help when offered.
  16. No one can do this alone.

Isn’t it time you finally enjoyed life and let someone else handle the rest?

Today’s lifestyles are far too hectic to get everything done yourself. The idea of being a superhero adult is simply a fantasy. The reality is you work hard for what you have, and your free time should be spent recharging your batteries and enjoying your life. That’s where CC Home Concierge Co. comes in.

A concierge is much more than simply an assistant person. It’s someone who is a home manager, home organizer and an organizer of time, a person who fully understands that you work hard and has very little time to take care of all the non-priority tasks that take over your To-Do lists.

CCHC services are personalized to your specific requirements, and ultimately end up saving you both time and money.

Peace & Harmony ~ Cheryl

How To Organize Your Spring-Clean

Spring makes everything New Again

I love when Spring arrives, I open all the windows in the home to let the sunshine & breeze in and Winter’s dirt & dust out!

My  Deep-Clean Checklist works well for going through the home to check off those areas that take a beating every winter season; entry ways, downstairs & hallway half baths, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and floors.

Now, that you have a plan of action, you need to gather your tools and equipment for the project.

Mine & Martha’s favorite Natural Cleaning Products

“I’m not here to reinvent the wheel – just tweak it!” that’s what I did with 2 of Martha’s recipes. I have been using my own solutions + Martha’s in my home for the last few weeks, I will post the outcomes with the recipes in a future post with pics, along with how to store them properly.

The two resources above will help get you started on your way to breathing fresh air back into the home!
