Checkers is a simple game with a simple objective; eliminate the other player’s pieces. Even the process of doing so is simple, jump the other player’s pieces and start a collection. There is very little thought as to a defensive strategy and it is often more reactive than strategic. Even though the objective of Chess is simply laid out — obtain the other player’s King — the process in which to obtain this goal is much more strategic. Chess requires a greater understanding of the ability of each of the 9 different pieces on the board and a risk assessment that takes longer than a simple scan of the board.“It’s a game in which the winning strategy is dynamic and requires complex thought across many turns, both for the player and their opponent’s turns. Chess requires a player to understand the context behind the moves on the board rather than just the risks offered by each individual turn.” –Play Chess Not Checkersby Zach WestYou may have heard the saying, “Play Chess, Not Checkers” before, but how does this apply to real estate?
Plan past your next move
So you want to sell your house. You can just put a sign in your front yard and call it a day, right? Wrong! The process of listing your home for sale and what happens next is much more complex than that. According to the Orlando Regional REALTOR Association, there are over230 possible actionsthat need to take place during every successful real estate transaction. Don’t you want someone who has been there before, and who knows what these actions are to make sure that you acquire your dream? One example, as we’vereported before, is the fact that 92% of buyers search online for a home. That is in comparison to only 28% looking at print newspaper ads. Most real estate agents have an extensive internet strategy to promote the sale of your home. Do you?

"We bought a home in April 2015 and used Rick as our realtor. We were buying sight unseen from out of state since we are military and he was so helpful and accommodating. He always responded to our questions and concerns immediately and was so knowledgeable. It was our first time purchasing a home and we were so nervous but he made the process so smooth that it really helped relieve a lot of the stress we had. He is very professional and also very nice! We would recommend him to anyone we knew interested in buying a home in the area"
