Jeff Cole of Exclusive Properties has successfully completed the REALTOR e-PRO course to become one of a select few real estate professionals to earn the prestigious certification offered through the National Association of REALTORS.®
The REALTOR e-PRO certification course is an educational program unlike any other professional certification or designation course available, comprehensive and interactive. It is specifically designed to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale of a home.
With more than 70% of consumers beginning their real estate research on the Internet, e-PRO certified agents have the experience and expertise to meet the demands of today’s buyer and seller.
The real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past several years. A majority of consumers are taking the time to conduct their own research prior to contacting an agent. In turn, real estate professionals must be knowledgeable of how technology can assist them in serving the needs of the buying and selling public.
The exclusive REALTOR e-PRO certification course is designed to help REALTORS stay at the leading edge of technology and identify, evaluate and implement new Internet business models.
Graduates use the skills they’ve acquired to provide clients information on properties for sale, local communities, and the local real estate market.

Visit the island paradise that is Maui and at some point during your stay, the thought, “could I live here?” will inevitably cross your mind.
This is true especially of Wailea, located on its famed and sunny south shore. Carefully planned enclaves of stately island homes and condominiums give entry to full and part-time residency within its zip code. Maui’s most desirable neighborhood has become the benchmark by which all world-class ranking resorts aspire offering everything opulent.
Here, Four Seasons, Grand Wailea and Fairmont Kea Lani mark an elegant trail along Wailea’s magnificent coast. The Shops at Wailea have become the focal point where top island restaurants sit juxtaposed local and world renowned designer shops.
Five of Hawaii’s best golf courses boast its address with the Wailea Tennis Center, Maui’s premier tennis club, in the heart of its community and Makena Tennis Club on its elite fringe. Public shorelines bare the loveliest extensive acres of beach and shimmering temperate ocean. Wailea is truly a community that has it all. Where else in the world would you encounter a street sign that reads, “Hotels, Shopping, Golf, Beaches” – it may just as well spell “Paradise!”

A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened ….
Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter address to God, USA, they decided to send it to the President.
The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill. The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:
Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington D.C. and those @$$holes deducted $95.00 in taxes.
For those of you who bought your home in the last couple of years, your taxes were based on a sales price that probably exceeds todays value. Given our Current Economic Status, sometimes Prayer isn’t enough, when all else fails call your Tax Assessor. See if your property qualifies for a reduction in Property Taxes…but keep praying. Happy Friday!

Are you having sleepless nights over your property tax bill?
As you probably are aware, Dec 10th is the final due date for the first installment of your property taxes.
If you don’t agree with the assessed value of your home, there’s still time to appeal that assessment. November 30th is the deadline, so you need to act quickly. You can do this yourself - you don’t need to pay one of those companies out there trying to get your money.
Go to their website: http://co.san-diego.ca.us and download the application ‘assessment appeals’. This is a fairly straight forward process and explanations are attached. Something they don’t explain is when looking for comparative properties you will need to find homes which have sold no later than 90 days after Jan 1st of the year you are appealing.
The property tax bill you have in your hands now is for July 1st 2008 – June 30th 2009, the comps you find will need to be sales no later than March 31st 2008. Go to Zillow or Trulia for home comp sales, or if you have a friend who is a Realtor, you could always ask them to print off some comps for you. Realtors are great people they do all sorts of things for free!
After sending the appeal in you will receive a postcard stating they have received your assessment appeal and will schedule a hearing date. Your assessors office should call you before this date to discuss the value of your property and try to come to some agreement over the telephone. If you don’t reach an agreement you will need to attend the hearing.
Good luck – it’s really worth the effort if you save yourself some dollars.
