Century 21 and The Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLVI is right around the corner, and so is the CENTURY 21® Super Bowl Commercial!

For the first time in the 40-year history of our brand, we will air a commercial during the most watched television event of the year.
The Super Bowl has a unique place in American television: when the commercials air, viewers actually start paying more attention to the broadcast. Did you know that over 111 million people are expected to watch this year’s Super Bowl, and I hope you will be watching and see CENTURY 21 Agents right in the middle of it!
On February 5th, tune in to your local NBC station to watch as CENTURY 21 Real Estate takes a new place in history! We are sponsoring a full half-hour segment in pre-game, and we air 11 pre-game commercials during that day. And of course, as our finale, our special :30 Super Bowl commercial will air in the 3rd quarter of the game itself.
Don’t forget to watch and vote for us! You’ll see exactly how to cast your vote for your favorite commercial on Super Bowl Sunday at century21.com.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 117

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 117:

Class day in Elmsford, NY again.  Faith graciously drove again…

We were greeted by Scott Einbinder before his 4 hour class for Century 21 agents – on making our services as Realtors better for our Buyers/Clients…

Since I have attended numerous seminars, most of what is gone over in class is repetitive, although – with Scott there are always a few “Ah, ha” moments.  Because of this, I will always do my best to attend as many classes, seminars, motivational speeches,… to be the best Realtor I could possibly be – As long as I have some caffeine…

After class, we stopped at the office – then home – and back out to the banksupermarket – picked up some wine and my daughter’s dry cleaning – back homedinnercleaning and ended the day with some of my favorite programs on television while working on my laptop.  Monday is over!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 109

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 109:

Early – really, really early wake up time for me today – Ugh!  Faith picked me up at around 5:20 – AM!  to meet with Linda, Eva and Faith.  We made our way from Brewster, NY to Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino in Uncasville, CT for Century 21 annual New England Fall Fest.  Did I mention we left really, really early.


This all day event started with breakfast and trade show – I purchased a blouse with the Century 21 logo – hope it fits.  We moved on to a motivational speech, breakout sessions and a lovely lunch in the middle of it all.


Before heading home, we decided to take advantage of being at a casino and gamble!  I spent a whole 5 bucks. Yup –   5 whole dollars! 


After a day of Education – Motivation – Eating – and fun, we made our way back home…

Finding a Good Real Estate Agent


Finding a good Real Estate Agent can be tricky.  You can start your search on the web, maybe by company – like Century 21, then by state and finally narrowing it to a certain town or area(s) your interested in.  Lets say Putnam County in New York in either Brewster, Patterson, Carmel, Kent, Mahopac, Putnam Valley   –  Century 21 VJF Realty handles all these areas – along with Westchester, Dutchess, Columbia and Ulster counties in New York – and counties through out Connecticut.

After finding a Real Estate office your comfortable with, now you can search for a Realtor – one that suits the needs of their clients, being available evenings, weekends and holidays – a full time agent.  Maybe you prefer someone who has experience, is full of knowledge, energetic, is up on all that is going on in TODAY’S market – including foreclosures, short sales and the explosion of networking with Facebook, Twitter, Active Rain, has a website and/or a Blog!  If not, then at least consider an agent that has a computer at home so they have access to getting  info at all times – and – a cell phone!


As a Realtor, I have come across agents that DO NOT HAVE A CELL PHONE – or don’t give out their cell phone number – or turn off their phones at 6pm – ??  Others that leave their laptop in the office, therefore not having access to the Multiple Listing Service until they’re back in the office – Mmmm??  In my book, these agents are part timers – not full time agents.  I’m sure they have their reasons, and my guess is it works for them and they’re OK with it.  But, if your not, make sure sure you ask questions BEFORE you set up an appointment to meet and go out with a Realtor.  Ask why they got into Real Estate – because they love looking at houses and they can make their own hours – or – because they are passionate about selling homes, they eat, sleep and dream of Real Estate!  Ask if they would be available when it’s convenient for YOU – what time can you call them until – what areas do they show and sell in.  Also, while getting to know them, see if they seem honest, have a sense of humor, patience and are they LISTENING to you and what YOU need – you’ll appreciate all of these qualities in an agent to get you through the process of buying and/or selling your home which can be one of the most complex and significant financial event in your life!
