Josh explains his strategy for selling the Hayvenhurst property.

on Feb 3, 20110

 

Hello viewers, 

I hope you have enjoyed the dynamic of Episode 1 as much as I have. I think the new cast of characters is as diverse as ever! This was certainly the most fun year of filming. In regards to the Hayvenhurst property, when I got the listing, I immediately knew this was not going to be an easy one to sell. I knew that if the owner was willing to cooperate and play ball though, he would sell the house. Sellers have to be realistic when it comes to a listing price. When a house comes on the market the first week, that is the most important time for the property to shine, because it is the first exposure the house gets. That is the time to be aggressive with pricing. Considering this house is so unusual for the area, asking more than it is worth is not the best idea. I advised the seller to be realistic, however, as you all know, when you own a property you always think it is worth more than it really is. 

As for my other cast of characters, it is a pleasure to be in the same business as them. 

Signing off,

Josh

Dear Josh, I would like to see you back up your numbers with comps. I feel that when you talk price you don't explaine "the selling price" vs "the sitting price"! I would like to hear more stats and facts from you.

PS LOVE your Grandmother! Where is her blog? She is a Rock Star!

I love that you are so close to your beautiful grandmother - I don't know her personally, but thank you for sharing a little bit of her with us - she is a national treasure. I hope you will take the money and success you have and use those resources to document her story. She is a blessing and must be shared! Good luck with the rest of the season - I hope you find balance and pull it off under pressure with class and grace!

I still laugh to myself when I think about when you were on the phone (last season) and take care of a small fire without even blinking. HAH!

Josh, I wish you continued success in your real estate career. You're a consummate professional.

One tiny hint, if I may. When you invite a client/guest to partake of a food offering, then please don't stand back at a distance from the challah to inquire, "Would you like some?" Instead, slice it, put some on a plate to offer it to the guests. Otherwise, your behavior is suggestive that you don't want the guest to ruin the appearance of the table you've set out for others, as if you're saying (without words), "You're not going to make me slice this, are you?".

I love that you took your beloved grandmother to the deli. The relationship you share with her is so endearing. It's obvious how much you each love and respect one another.

You and Madison got along well, too, I thought. Stay away from that obnoxious teenager, Chad.

Very best wishes.

You are by faaaaaar my favorite person on the show! Half the time I'm cracking up at the stunts you pull and the other half of the time I'm left amazed that most of your hilarious tactics actually work. Your sweet grandmother is absolutely wonderful - you're very lucky to have her. Her advice, like your stunts, leaves me in stitches...I mean, what better way to sell a zillion dollar home than to offer kosher pickles at a showing? And you know what? She's probably right....the person that agrees to buy that crazy house most likely IS someone who would make such a pricey decision based on pickles! Keep up the good work...I thought I couldn't enjoy anything more than you getting under that wackadoodle Chad's skin, but it turns out I"m wrong! Definitely looking forward to seeing what you do next!

Josh, You are the man! How in the world do you keep your awesome sense of humor in the very competitive world of real estate? I love the realionship you have with your grandmother did you finish the book about her yet? If so how can I read it? I watch the show just to watch you - I love your style! Keep being you man, I wish I had your confidence.

I think you are the best part of this show and you always make me laugh when I watch it. You are funny, self-deprecating and self-aggrandizing at the same time and it's hilarious. Your grandmother's a real hoot too. Good luck on the new season!

As a former Real Estate agent, I love your style. Will miss your antics with strange "agent" Chad. By the way, what ever happened to him. "he ran away"?
