Something I used to do with my father before he died was fixing his home garden. Thanks to that now whenever I get a new property to sell I dedicate myself to fixing the garden before showing it, I learned to do it very fast and very aesthetically. Have you ever fixed houses by yourself to improve sales?

I have not fixed houses by myself to improve sales, but I imagine it would be a very effective way to get potential buyers interested in the property. Gardens are important features of a home, and if they are not well-maintained, it can be off-putting to potential buyers. By fixing the garden yourself, you are showing potential buyers that you have taken care of the property and that you are invested in it. This can be a major selling point for a home.

I have never fixed houses by myself to improve sales, but it sounds like a great idea! It's definitely something I would be interested in trying out. I think that taking the time to fix up the garden would really help to improve the look of the property and make it more appealing to potential buyers.

Yes, I have. It's actually a lot of fun and it makes the property more appealing to potential buyers. I think it's a skill that more people should learn, because it can really help improve a home's value.

I definitely have! I think it's a really important thing to do, because it shows that you're invested in the property and that you're willing to go the extra mile for your clients. It also makes the property look nicer and more inviting, and I've found that it often leads to faster sales.

Talk to me about going from 2 to 3. I feel like 3 kids is such a rarity in this industry that it’s daunting to make the leap. I don’t know a single person in my office with 3 kids.

My kids are young (toddler and baby), and if we do go ahead we’d want to do it in the next year or so.
