Are you thinking of selling your home? Are you frustrated with real estate agents charging you 6 or 7% to sell your home, and not receiving value for that money you paid them? Have you asked the question, how do I for sale by owner? How do I save on real estate commission? How do I hire a discount real estate agent? Why do Realtors make so much money?
These are all fair questions because there is much truth that lies in the foundation of all these questions. 95% of real estate agents and Realtors do not earn their 6% or 7%. They do not provide more value to you than the money you pay them. 5% do and are worth every penny. If you have had a bad experience with an agent, this video is for you. If you love paying the 6 and 7% this video is also for you.
Selling your home for sale by owner is like doing your own root canal to save paying the dentist $1,000. Probably not a good idea, but if you are going to do it, you should at least watch an amazing and detailed how to tutorial video on You Tube first.
Tune into episode 5 of the What’s Up With Real Estate Show where I will give you an amazing and detailed how to video tutorial. I will show you every single step of how to sell your home for sale by owner. That’s right I will show you how to do it yourself and save thousands of dollars.

I will also explain when and why it makes 100% sense to pay the money to sell your home and hire a real estate professional.
Heck, I may even attempt to do my own root canal on the show. Only one way to find out. Tune in and watch…….
After 25 years of being an entrepreneur, investor, and sales professional at heart, I decided to get my real estate license in October of 2016. Today marks my one-year anniversary of being licensed. Now I am celebrating my first official year, not only as a real estate agent, but a Realtor. As I think back on this opportunity, I reflect on these questions:
“Why did you get into real estate,” and, “why do you do real estate?” The answer: to inspire others to create and live an amazing life, by understanding and using real estate as a vehicle.
In 2003, I graduated Colorado State University, with two bachelor’s degrees, a passion for entrepreneurship, business and sales, and an amazing woman I was madly in love with and knew I was going to marry (she just didn’t know it yet). I also graduated with one more thing, close to $200,000 of debt, and no financial blueprint for success!
