Keller Williams Realty Continues to Dominate and Turn Heads

by Jeremy Larkin

Keller Williams Realty is getting some notoriety...again...and again.....and...you understand. 

Last month Brad Inman of Inman news released a piece, "Underestimate Keller Williams at Your Own Risk", touting basically EVERYTHING about the company. Inman "gushed" about the company to be quite frank, and Inman news is widely regarded as an incredibly reputable source of national real estate data. 


Keller Williams Realty

Then this week the video below was released. These guys are pretty zany, but they've built a reputation over the past 5-10 years of speaking TOTAL truth about the Real Estate market, and they are NOT Realtors - so no real benefit of them not speaking truth. 

If you're a Home Buyer or Seller, this might be great grounds for hiring a Realtor from Keller Williams Realty. If you're an Agent looking for a "home" - it's tough to ignore the talk on the street, and it bears that your time would be well spent to at least check into the opportunity to grow your business via Keller Williams Realty. 

Shoot, they even got Charlie Sheen on the video...It must be true! :)

Hitler Finds out his Zillow Home Value Estimate Isn't Accurate...

by Jeremy Larkin

..And it's funny. Hilarious.  

A while back we posted a video, "Can you Really Trust Zillow to estimate your Home's value?" And the answer was NO. 

It's tempting to trust a (FREE) online home valuation system to figure out what your home is worth, but step back and consider this: You spend years of your life building up a nest egg and/or preparing to make the SINGLE BIGGEST purchase you'll ever make - in a HOME.

Now you pop on a site like Zillow.com assuming that for absolutely NO FEE, with NO RISK on your part, they'll tell you what your home is worth. Shoot, you don't even have to put in your email address or name!

Zillow.com is a wonderful site. They offer loads of great (free) info to the public, AND Real Estate Professionals. But please, please, PRETTY PLEASE trust us: When it comes to figuring out what your home's true market value is, (another) PLEASE trust a Professional do help you out, not a computer system. 

If you'd like a REAL WORLD, REAL PERSON look at your home's true value, or just a no-obligation discussion about your property, give us a ring at 435-767-9821. That is all, now enjoy the video!

St. George HUD Home For Sale - Park Model

by Jeremy Larkin

St. George HUD homes are becoming something MORE normal than less. I say this because a just a few years ago we really didn't see any quantity of HUD homes in the St. George real estate markets. Heavens...we didn't see many St. George foreclosures PERIOD!

This St. George HUD home, marketed by The Larkin Group at Keller Williams Realty, is a "Park Model" unit located in the "Dixie Downs Resort" subdivision on North Dixie Downs Road. Dixie Downs Resort is an EXTREMELY quiet, low-traffic area, and according to subdivision CC&R's is a "55 and older" community. Be sure of course to check with the local HOA for exact details. 

Make this St. George HUD home your year round or 2nd home in active 55+ resort community. Clean, cozy 1 bedroom mobile home. You'll be close to shopping, restaurants, golf, state park, and great hiking. Sold as is where is.

Directions: From Sunset Blvd, north on Dixie Downs Dr. to Dixie Downs RV Resort. Take an immediate RIGHT and then Left -- lot 164 is just past clubhouse on left side. 

It's important to note that when purchasing a St. George HUD home all bidding is done online via www.HudHomeStore.com. Contact your preferred Real Estate Professional for assistance - it's worth the trouble as HUD paperwork can be a bit tricky. Go to www.bidselect.com or www.hudhomestore.com to learn more about this home & how/who can bid. Case # 521-623617

Keller Williams Realty ROCKS! Have you ever been involved with a job, organization, club, or sports team and woke up one day saying, "MAN I'm lucky to be a part of this!"??? I sure have, and that organization is Keller Williams Realty.

I know, I know. If you're a consumer, you're thinking, "why should I care?" Well you certainly don't have to! However, Larkin Group clients should care because they can rest easy knowing we're trained and supported (both legally and day-to-day business wise), by the greatest Real Estate company in the world - Keller Williams Realty

Realtor Magazine recently ran their annual "Franchise Report", detailing a bit about all of the major companies out there. # of agents, offices, etc, etc, etc. If you want to see the full report, here you go: 2011 Franchise Report. It's actually a short read.

If not, here's the punch line: Every single major brokerage in the United States has closed offices and lost agents in the past few years....EXCEPT Keller Williams Realty.

Unless you've been living in a cave or the Arctic, you'll realize that this is really saying something considering the economic conditions of late. It's not just one thing, but the sum of ALL THINGS about Keller Williams Realty that make it great. Here are just a few philosophies that you'll probably care about:

 Win-Win. . . or no deal
 Integrity. . . do the right thing
 Commitment. . . in all things
 Communication. . .  seek first to understand
 Creativity. . . ideas before results
 Customers. . . always come first
 Teamwork. . . together everyone achieves more
 Trust. . . starts with honesty
 Success. . . results through people

These beliefs are an integral part of the Keller Williams Realty company culture NATIONWIDE.

Keller Williams "Red Day" Coming to St. George!

by Jeremy Larkin

In a brief and important departure from regular old real estate stuff, I wanted to share with you what might be most special and unique about the Brokerage I work with - Keller Williams Realty International.

It's called "Red Day" and will be taking place in every single city in the United States and Canada where there is a Keller Williams Realty Office.

What is Keller Williams RED Day? 

(Renew, Energize and Donate) Day is a Keller Williams Realty service initiative dedicated to improving our local communities. Keller Williams Realty asks all of their associates in the US and Canada to donate their time on May 13, 2010 to renewing and energizing aspects of their local communities.

On May 14, 2009 we logged over 100,000 community services hours on Red Day!!!

Our vision for this day is that all Keller Williams associates will actively engage in a coordinated effort to improve their local community. Activities may include rehabbing a house, cleaning up a local trail, providing food for the homeless, or any other service related activity needed in your community. This will be one of the single biggest events ever undertaken in the real estate industry.

Keller Williams Realty St. George Project

Our St. George Keller Williams Realty office will literally be CLOSING ITS' DOORS on Thursday May 13th to complete our project - The planting of a full garden at Porter's Nursing home, located at 126 W. 200 N. in St. George.

The people at Porter's have told us that a garden is exactly their their residents need to keep themselves busy and feel like their time and existence has "value." We are SO PLEASED to be doing this! I dont' know much about planting a garden, but I can use a shovel, rake and hoe!

We are inviting ANYONE from the community to is interested in participating to join us! Just shoot me an email: larkin@gostgeorge.com, and we can discuss the opportunity.

Watch out this Thursday cause we're painting the town RED!! If you'd like to see a REALLY neat video about this special event, here it is, just don't forget to grab a tissue.
