REALTOR® Rally 2016 – It’s A Wrap!

November 11th — Wow. Awesomeness. We have a true love of what we do here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® and the passion to share it with one another; but more importantly with everyone who has a place to call home.

REALTOR® Rally is a culmination of strategic planning and the desire to create an immersive learning experience. Classes taught by our valued partners, Sales Agents and Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC., guests were the hub of what made this event such a success. A framework of vendors brought their “A” game to share services, tools and ideas to equip attendees with a kickstart of business for 2017.

It is really tough to formulate into words what an experience this was for all of us. Rather than describe each class, amount of attendees and the usual stats, we wanted to share the photos. Our team of photographers were on hand to capture as many moments as we could. BUT, some of these photos were taken by our agents, employees and guests who shared their experiences on social media.

Thank you to everyone who attended. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we’re already planning for next level awesomeness experience.

Enjoy these inside the event glimpses:

More on this to come…

Medina Lake Overflowing From Recent Rains

Medina Lake is located approximately 23 miles southeast of Bandera, Texas. Beginning Memorial Day weekend in May through August the park is open 7 days a week from 7am to 8pm, and weekends only September to May. This Bandera County Park spans about 5,575 acres and is a popular retreat for fishing, boating, picnicking and water activities.

Various media sources have reported that the lake was on the verge of drying up. Certainly Medina Lake was only partially fully, about 4.5 percent according to the San Antonio Express News, but there has been water in the lake for some time. The recent rains have seen the increase the lake to nearly 100 percent capacity. We have so far reached a rainfall total of 21 inches since January. This sets us ahead of our usual 29 inch annual rainfall total and more rain is on the way. No matter how you slice it, this weather certainly helps those who own property from no longer having dry coves. It is worth mentioning though that is has taken over 50 years and a 4 year drought to cause the problems with the lake initially.

We asked several of our Sales Agents who’s expertise is real estate to weigh in on the recent rains and it’s effect on the area.

Missy Stagers of CB Harper’s Northwest Office and M. Stagers & Partners has several listings in this area. She says, “I do not see [the recent rains] impacting the market greatly …it has had water for a while.  The fact that is [the lake is] full and the media attention is great since there was so much bad media before.  The lake was also stocked with over 200 bass fish as well last year.  All of which are good things, so it won’t appear property owners are desperate and can now argue they have water, but prices are prices.”  Very well said Missy! Take a look at Missy’s listings, listed below, in prime proximity to Medina Lake.

Janette Springer of CB Harper’s Boerne Office offered some wonderful insight, “I can only assume that taking a lake from extreme drought conditions to a lake that is full and beautiful will be nothing but positive for the Real Estate market from this point forward.  The call volume increase as well as the mobile ID options has definitely increased lately now whether due to the time of year or the lake flowing at 100% capacity I can only say that it is a blessing for all.  The sellers that have been in position to sell due to the drought have now been put in a better position to sell because the lake is full.  Having a full lake should bring more buyers to the area.”

Pictures below is one of Janette’s listing in the area, with an open house set for this Sunday June 5th located at 918 Pebble Beach Dr. NW, Pipe Creek, TX 78063.

Janette continued by stating, “May of 2015 the rain came to this area and up stream that brought this lake up to over half full.  The lake is 101% and running over spillway now which hasn’t taken place since sometime in 2009.  Those down stream are starting to get a little nervous with not knowing when the rain will stop and if they might be subject to evacuation should this continue.  The spill way has no limit so with the rain continuing we need to be thinking of options should this all come true.  Medina Lake in the Texas Hill Country was formed with the construction of a dam in 1910 with completion in 1913. The full depth at the dam is 152 ft and was the fourth largest dam in the US when it was completed. It is said the local farmers are the ones that got the funding from a German bank to make this happen since no US banks would fund the project. Now over 100 years old, it was once the largest dam in Texas and the 4th largest dam in the United States.”

Thank you to both of these Sales Agents for their input and what a great looking group of homes. It’s still a wonderful time to purchase a home! With school out for the summer doesn’t a lake house sound like a great place to call home?

There are so many facets of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® each made of carefully selected professionals who truly love what they do. When thinking of the CB Harper Family as a whole it’s easy to highlight all the wonderful people on our team, but difficult to ensure we haven’t missed anything. We rely on the feedback from the nearly 400 people on staff and those on-board as Sales Associates. Recently some photos were forwarded along to us and we wanted to share some of the wonderful things that have been going on over at our North West Office.

Julie ConnerVice President Residential Sales and Ed ZapataAssistant Sales Manager have taken a very hands on approach in steering the reins at the North West Office. Pictured right Ed and Julie are rolling their sleeves up, unafraid to buckle down and replace ceiling tiles. It’s this kind of raw leadership that inspires some of the top agents in our company to call the Northwest Office home.

The Coldwell Banker Northwest Office is nationally recognized for production and professionalism. The sales associates located in this office specialize in real estate across the metropolitan San Antonio area, as well as, the surrounding hill country area. This office has received the prestigious Coldwell Banker National industry awards for “President’s Premier”, “President’s Elite” and “President’s Circle” signifying our sales associate’s strong commitment to each client. Andy Smith was recently featured in our blog for hosting a party for the first 100 clients who closed on their homes since he began his real estate career! Kerry Dike, Rhonda Howerton and Missy Stagers, of the North West Office were also highlighted in our blog for their achievements, being awarded San Antonio Business Journal’s winner of the Residential Real Estate Top Agents.

11539181_923471074381167_7480285496928633238_oDuring the 4th of July a celebratory party for the Sales Associates  was held not only to honor the holiday but to let the Sales Associates know much their hard work was appreciated. An array of delicious foods were served including 11694964_923471131047828_3061566249624438961_nfried chicken, potato salad, beans, chips, peach cobbler, blackberry cobbler and ice cream. This was generously sponsored by Debbie Blackerby of American Home Shield and Tamara of Coldwell Banker Mortgage. In addition, there was festivities and laughter over games of bean bag toss, hula-hoop and water balloons.

Just an example of some of the wonderful feedback we have received about some the Sales Associates over at the Northwest Office is featured here. It’s certainly assuring to know that Julie is so supportive of the Sales Associates and will work to highlight their achievements.

4271772_1429628166.0115A perfect example of the camaraderie was back in May when Julie held a silent auction for Rich Palacios and his wife Michele who was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. Still in an on-going fight Michele has battled through radiation, bone injections, various medications and treatments while the cancer has metasitized into her bones and now is stage 4. Julie held a silent auction and with the help of staff and Sales Associates alike raised over $4,000.  An update of the situation was gathered from the couple’s Go Fund Me account and reads,

Michele and I have decided to end the GoFundMe account. We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you who donated!! We feel very blessed! Thank you for all the prayers as well! Thank you for everybody who held a fundraiser to help raise money!

Although our plan did not go accordingly when Michele’s treatment was cut short at the clinic. She will continue to fight her cancer with alternative treatments here at home. She has now been back for about a month and is doing much better! 

Michele has an alternative doctor here in San Antonio who she sees on a regular basis and we are also hoping to continue some of the protocols from the clinic she attended here at home. 

All the money we received will help pay for these treatments! 

As hard as this has been there are so many blessings we have received along the way. This has definitely been a life changing event for us!

Thank you and God Bless!” 

There are so many wonderful things about the much appreciated team at our North West office! We are open to receiving more news and updates directly at pr@cbharper.com, please be sure to include high-quality photos with description of your news.

Thank you Julie, Ed and the entire sales and staff team over at the North West office! We look forward to sharing more of your inspiring and wonderful stories.

4 Tips To Hire The Right Moving Company

MStagers_435856By Missy Stagers, Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® NW Sales Associate and 2014 Chairman of the Board President
— From the SABOR President’s Column series run in the Sunday issue of San Antonio Express-News

It’s a great feeling when you’ve found the property of your dreams. It’s not such a great feeling to start planning how you’ll move your belongings into it.

Hiring movers can help you take some of the stress out of your move, but only if you find the right one. In addition to review and ratings websites, word-of-mouth recommendations are a good way to identify your options. Your San Antonio REALTOR® is another great resource for learning about reputable movers in your area.

Once you have a few companies in mind, narrow down the competition with these tips.

Three is the magic number

Choosing one company without doing your research could lead to a frustrating experience, but calling a dozen moving companies for estimates can take too much time. Instead, decide on at least three companies you want to learn more about. You’ll get a good sense for average rates and offerings for your area. You may even be able to use their estimates to your advantage later.

Get an in-person assessment

Most people aren’t a good judge of how much stuff they have and while some companies have online tools that create an estimate using your best guess, you should ask your picks to visit your home and take inventory for an accurate estimate.

During an in-person assessment, you’ll be asked about what you’re planning to take, the moving supplies you need and about your heavy or fragile items. Your movers will need to know the layout of your new property too, so don’t forget to tell them about the three flights of stairs or that they’ll have to park on the street.

Don’t hold back information

Be upfront about what you need your movers to do, whether it’s packing and unloading, assembling or dissembling items, or heavy lifting. You may think you can get a deal by glossing over details, but you’ll ultimately pay more for your hidden extras and your movers won’t be pleased.

Negotiate the deal

You’ll receive an estimate from your moving companies based on several factors, such as the distance of the move and the potential gas expense, the weight or square footage that your items will use in the moving van and labor costs. This is where having more than one estimate will come in handy. Don’t be afraid to tell your top pick if you’ve received a lower estimate that appeals to you, or roughly how much you want to spend. Look for other areas in which you can negotiate, such as free junk-hauling services or reduced rates for extra supplies or a different move date.
