The Blog by Ilona

    The Reluctant Realtor Blog


    Let me start out by saying…as my heading indicates, that I am somewhat reluctant on this blogging thing.  It has become a requirement by my editor…oops Broker in charge.  As in all thing that I resist I am confident that this will work out in a big and positive way…   but you know “old dog, new tricks”.


    I think my resistance is that I am not all that computer savvy, I just learned to cut and paste for heaven’s sake and that still intimidates the heck out of me.  For example this blog needs to  be 500 words long and somewhere on this marvelous lap time I’m sure there is a word counter, but I don’t know for the life of me how to find it, so I will count the old fashioned way.  Really, let me know how many of you out there are with me on this?


    My name is Ilona Kenrick,  I am an active real estate broker in Asheville North Carolina and an inactive real estate agent in Florida (in other words I’ve been at this a while).  When it comes to selling real estate I appear to know what I am doing.  Again, I was reluctant to even start this career… husband dragged me into it kicking and screaming.  Number 1 in my office last year… seemed to be on my way to that this year, but the market has stalled (that’s going to be addressed in blog # 2). I like, correction I LOVE what I do… showing the homes, meeting the folks, selling the home and negotiate, don’t even get me started… I love that a whole lot.  But I have come to realize in this day and age I could do none of this without the computer and internet, so here I am… 5 years out from retirement. “Old dog, new tricks…


    On to real estate itself.   Asheville and Western North Carolina as every blog will tell him is the greatest place in North Caroling to put down roots.  I work at Exit Realty Vistas, a great place with great people, family atmosphere…. A crazy mixed bag of people, fearlessly lead by one Susan Duncan, broker in charge, broker extronanaire.  (aka editor).  You can’t go wrong with working with anyone of us, but of course I prefer you work with me.   If you find you don’t like a small corner of the world that’s fine too, but please come check us out and soon.  Feel free to call me at any time and I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.  Next reluctant blog in 2 weeks.  Stay tuned and let me know what you think, 500 words..yeah.
