More success stories with the zac team!

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

Hello, neighbors! From time to time, we ask our clients to reflect upon their experiences working with the zac team. From this, we learn how we can better serve your real estate needs, with the added bonus of learning what our clients think we're doing right.

Here are success stories from some of our past clients :

"We chose to work with the Zac team because of Zac's experience in the market and the advertising abilities of the team. Overall, we had a good real estate experience. Working with a "team" is very different than working with an individual agent-the team is extremely resourceful. The entire team is extremely professional and always available to answer questions." - Tracy Lurey

"A family friend who is a realtor suggested the Zac Team. I took her advice and I'm glad I did! I felt like I was my agent's only client, even though I know I wasn't. He was always there to answer my questions (and I had lots being a first time buyer!). I honestly can't think of anything Zac could do to improve." -Heather Magalski

"I chose the Zac Team for their familiarity with the area in which I was interested. My agent's earnestness, flexibility, and willingness to work hard for me stands out in my mind." -Marcy Massengale

"This was our first home purchase and we wanted someone to help us through everything, so we chose the zac team. We just remember how friendly and helpful everyone was to us, not just our agent. I referred a friend to the zac team who loved all the assistance, and I would recommend the zac team to other friends and would use their services again." -Shelby Failing & Justin Howell

"I chose the Zac Team because I was looking for a professional approach to selling real estate. My experience with the Zac Team was excellent. They gave great advice and explanations all along. There were never any surprises, and their advice was always on target." -Sylvia Martin-Estes

"Our experience with the zac team has surpassed any other transaction we've ever had! The team is organized, energetic, involved, and respectful. Having worked for the Ritz Carlton Hotel Company in the past, the zac team is the only business that even comes close to providing the same extremely high level of service. The positive atmosphere and dedicated team members make the zac team stand above the rest!" -Amy Lukken & Alex O'Neal

"We had been trying to sell our home by ourselves and had been unable to do so. That's when we realized that we needed the best professional help available. So we called the zac team and got the action we wanted!" -Desperate House Sellers

"I googled several Atlanta intown real estate services and dialed the numbers in the order I found them. The Zac Team was the first number to have a human being pick up instead of a voice mail. An agent was available to help me immediately in my home search." -Jennifer Larson

"We heard of Zac Team from having lived in the Virginia Highland area. They provided prompt attentive service.  Our agent was a pleasure to do business with.  She really gets to know her clients and pays attention to what we were focused on.  I felt like she used all available resources to do the job (both internal and external resources)." -Ned & Melissa Smathers

Thank you all for sharing those stories with us! As always, we're delighted to serve your real estate needs, whether for the first-time or once again.

Tax Credit Coming to an End?

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

Hello, neighbors!

Many of you have already heard about the $8000 tax credit for first time homebuyers, and many of you have taken advantage of the great opportunity it represents. For those who haven't, time may be running out.

The plan, as it stands, requires buyers to buy before December 1st, 2009 in order to receive the credit, but the National Association of Realtors is making a case for the extension of this successful program by releasing this video.

Rob Arnold, of Sand Dollar Realty Group in Altamonte Springs, FL, offers up his doubts about the efficacy of the program in his recent blog post.

Whether or not the program is extended, the program will continue to apply to all qualified closings before December 1st, 2009, so act now or you may lose your chance!

As always, whether you're a first time homebuyer or you're looking for your next  home, it's a pleasure serving your real estate needs!

Employee Confidence On The Rise!

A Slight Dip in Home Values

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

Hello neighbors!

Home values continue to fall, however, this follows increases that we’ve seen over the past few months. For metro Atlanta, home prices were down nearly 14 percent in June '09 as compared to June '08; this after a 1.5 percent increase from May '09 to June '09.

This is definitely the beginning of the end. Hopefully we will hit rock bottom soon. For detailed figures and analysis, read the Atlanta Business Chronicle article here!

What would you do after a 60 foot fall? Attitude is everything!

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

My friend Marilyn Kohn forwarded this powerful email to me about our daily attitude and I wanted to share it with all of you...

John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!"

He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, "I don’t get it! You can’t be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?"

He replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or... You can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or... I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.

"Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or... I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."

"Yeah, right, it’s not that easy," I protested.

"Yes, it is," he said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live your life."

I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.

I saw him about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I’d be twins...Wanna see my scars?"

I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.

"The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter," he replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or... I could choose to die. I chose to live."

"Weren’t you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked.

He continued, "...the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read ‘he’s a dead man’. I knew I needed to take action."

"What did you do?" I asked.

"Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me," said John. "She asked if I was allergic to anything ‘Yes, I replied.’ The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Gravity!’."

Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead."

He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude... I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.

Attitude, after all, is everything.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
