Article written by Elaine Sisman, Realtor, The Keyes Company

The services of a professional Real Estate Agent can help you stay organized –saving you time, money, & stress. Especially helpful if you are a first-time home buyer! There is so much free information on-line, and it is fun to ‘window-shop’. However, when you hear “if you can click a mouse, you can buy a house”. I say, “please don’t”. Realtor services are generally free to buyers. I help you organize and focus on what’s important to you & your family. First, organize your “needs & wants”. What are the top 5-7 things you must have in your new home?

• Is it price, location, size, school district, square footage, pet-friendly, short commutes, parking,…?

• Do you know what you can afford? Clear up credit issues, get those finances organized.

• I refer you to a mortgage professional to get a “pre-qualification” letter. That helps clarify your ability to purchase and your price range.

• Meanwhile I do research based on your criteria. I email you pictures of properties in your price range. By a process of elimination we figure out what properties to view.

• I make those appointments and the Fun begins. When we find the right property I present & negotiate your offer based on price & terms .

• Once the offer is accepted I provide all parties with a time-line of contractual obligations.

• Behind the scenes I choreograph inspections, workmen, title, & mortgage professionals. I keep my clients organized for less stress during the purchase! I’m nicknamed “The Closer” because I work to close on time! After closing I maintain your files, and you become “clients for life”.

Buying property is fun! With proper organization, my clients can relax & enjoy their new home! Until they call me again to get organized for their next home move. Elaine Sisman, Realtor, The Keyes Company 305 975 7781 http://www.ElaineSisman.com ESismanRealtor@aol.com

During the Holidays, starting with your next purchase, donate or recycle an item you no longer use or like.  This works great with office gadgets and clothing! You will have to find one thing to let go of for every new item brought in.  You will then begin to evaluate the necessity of each purchase.  Practicing this rule will help you declutter your office and home and reduce the amount of stuff in your life!

RECLAIM MY SPACE: A journey to clarity #1

20 09 2010

A Written Journey from one of OuttaSpace Clients:  Entry #1

Space matters. Really, it does. I didn’t fully believe this until recently, when I had the pleasure of connecting with Space Master, Cristina Maria. She said something to me that really hit home: “Your environment is an outer reflection of your mind” (or something along those lines…)
“Sh*t,” I thought, “That doesn’t reflect a pretty picture of me!” I’ve been in transition this year, and reclaiming my space has been that breath of fresh air I have so desperately needed. I’ve never really been one to put much attention on “making my house a home”, but now that my space was to be SOLELY mine, I wanted it to be a sanctuary for me. As I looked around at my apartment I scanned the energy – dead. The walls were barren, there was no warmth, major clutter , clashing furniture… it was cold and definitely NOT the reflection of me I wanted to see.  My space was not conducive to productivity (I wasted SO much time EVERYDAY looking frantically for anything and everything), clarity, creativity, inspiration, you name it. Basically my space was not workflow conscious… And considering I run my business from home that was no good… any (savvy) solopreneur knows that their space MUST be workflow conscious… which opens way to inspired BIG ideas and constant effectiveness.
My initial consultation with Cristina was beyond powerful. She immediately got to the core of why I had been unknowingly resisting putting some “lovin” into my place… She went through every room and area and we assessed what I was envisioning, what was most practical, and how I could maximize my space whilst reusing items I already had. The session ended with a strategic plan beautifully intermixed with frugal shopping, relocating current furniture, recycling furniture by repainting, and more. We focused mostly on the living room, work area, foyer, bedroom and balcony. I was inspired and excited to see the changes that would be transpiring during the coming months… I was excited to finally be taking steps to make my home my sanctuary…
I made a trip to Ikea  a few days later with a clear idea about what I needed to get.  A few hours later, my apartment was completely transformed into my vision! What was most striking was the shift in energy – you could definitely feel the difference… the air felt light and more clear… I am so grateful to have the chance to work with Cristina, she’s so passionately determined to help people realize the oh-so-frequently overlooked connection between the quality of your mind and the inherent energy that lies in all of the objects we own.  Do yourself a favor today and scan your home. Ask yourself – Does my home reflect a side of me I want to see?

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle…Re-organize Going green is “the thing” these days and rightfully so. We only have this one planet and we need to take care of it. But it is so easy to get overwhelmed by the news and statistics leading you to think “what can I do?”. The bottom line is that everything we do, buy, eat or use has an impact on the environment – even how we organize our homes and offices. In this section we offer products help you recycle as well as products that are made from natural and sustainable materials, such as bamboo, cotton or linen. Come back often as we will be adding new products frequently to help you in your quest to organize while remaining eco-friendly.
