Do you have a problem remembering names? Most of us have forgotten someone's name and felt pretty awkward about it. Today I wanted to share five simple tips for remembering names. 

  1. Greet and repeat. When you first meet someone, repeat their name by saying something like "Nice to meet you Jake!" Then make an attempt to use that person's first name throughout the conversation without being too mechanical.
  2. Spell it out. If the name is unusual, ask the person to spell it out for you. Sometimes visualizing the letters will help you remember. If a name could have a variant like Kris and Chris, make sure you ask.
  3. Card them. Ask for a business card and glance at it while you speak with the person to create another visual reference for your memory.
  4. Associate your associates. If they have the same name as a close friend or a family member, make a mental note or picture for easier recall. You can also associate them with a celebrity or character with the same name; take a second to visualize it. 
  5. Rhyme all the time. "Jen from Penn" or "Phil on the hill" or "Mary owns a dairy" are fun ways to improve your recall of names. Find something to rhyme their name with - it’s not hard.

Ask for a business card and glance at it throughout the conversation.


One of the main reasons we forget names is because we're busy and have too much going on in our minds. Once you start to engage more fully with new people you meet, the little details will improve your name recall rapidly.

I hope you find this topic as helpful as I did. If you have any questions for me about Harrisburg real estate, give me a call or send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.

Inventory is low in Harrisburg right now, so our home sellers are seeing lots of offers coming in on their homes. Buyers have to put their best foot forward in this situation because they’ll be battling other buyers for the home, and they need their offer to stand out amongst other potential buyers.

There are many different ways that buyers can win over sellers. It really depends on the needs of the seller and which buyer’s offer satisfies them most completely. One seller may want the highest dollar amount, while another may prefer a shorter closing period.

However, other strategies include writing personal letters to the seller to explain why your family needs the home. This helps to put a face to your name, and you can use the emotions of the seller in order to have your offer picked.

"Most sellers pick offers with fewer contingencies, more money down, and higher offers with escalation addendums."


Most sellers pick offers with fewer contingencies, more money down, and higher offers with escalation addendums. This says that they will raise their offer ‘x’ amount higher than another offer that comes in above theirs. It basically ensures that they have the highest offer on the home, but it also shows that the buyer is extremely eager to purchase the property.

Remember that it’s the seller’s decision whether to disclose multiple offers to the buyer’s agent, so you should always make your best offer even if you don’t expect other ones. Sellers should keep in mind that they might scare away buyers if they do disclose that it’s a multiple offer situation, but they have to remember the offers may not be as crisp.

Handling multiple offer situations is something that buyers and sellers need to be able to do. Our team is trained extensively in order to capitalize on situations such as these. If you would like to speak with us about handling one, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
