Moving into your new El Paso home!

by Dan & Patti Olivas

Moving can be a stress filled ordeal.  Please don’t compound the situation by hiring the lowest price mover you can and I say this from experiences that I have seen some of my clients go through.  They thought they had gotten a good deal only to find out that once their furniture was loaded up the price changed and now their furniture was being held for ransom.  

The reason given for the change in price was always the same, the load was bigger than they calculated.  Don’t get caught up in one of these scams, always hire a firm with a good reputation - you don’t want you move to El Paso and into your new El Paso home to be  ruined by a shady mover.

What a rewarding profession!

by Dan & Patti Olivas

I was thinking this morning about what I find rewarding in what I do and this is what I came up with:  meeting new families and then being able to help them buy or sell their home is one of the wonderful perks of being in this great profession called real estate.  Being able to accommodate the buyer’s reasons for wanting to buy a home is something that one never tires of.  This profession has taught me so much and one of the most important lessons has been the art or skill of listening to all the important personal individual reasons for their wanting to buy.  People buy for their reasons not mine and I hope I never lose sight of this.  You can’t have a bigger rush then to see someone embark on a new journey in their new home where they will now create life long memories.

At Dan Olivas and Associates we feel that helping families like yours create life long memories in your new home is a Nobel endeavor. 

Our El Paso real estate market is doing well; nice homes priced correctly are selling. Interest rates remain low.  Call us! 

Buyers Buy For Their Reasons Not Yours!!

by Dan & Patti Olivas

When it comes to buying a home nobody likes being sold!  Residential real estate is a very personal and emotional decision - buyers buy for their own reasons.  Successful agents find out what these reasons are and then help facilitate the sale based on those reasons.  It’s very important not only to learn, but also to understand the personal and emotional components involved in the process.  This can only be accomplished by agents listening with purpose to the buyer’s reasons for buying and believing that they, the agent, can serve as a catalyst to the buyer reaching their goals.  This is why building relationships is important: with all things being equal, buyers prefer to do business with people they like and trust, and with all things not being equal buyers still prefer to do business with people they like and trust.

Bottom line is: buyer’s reasons for buying certainly vary, but several things remain constant, those agents that become the most successful in this profession of real estate know the importance of:

  1. Building strong relationships
  2. Helping  buyers solve problems and
  3. Helping buyers attain what they want

El Paso market continues to show signs of being and getting stronger.

Dan Olivas and Associates are committed to earn your confidence by helping you reach your goals.
