If you're preparing to buy or sell a home, why should you be forced to work with a real estate agent who won't listen to your concerns and questions? Instead, hire a real estate agent who is a great listener, and you can receive consistent support throughout the homebuying or home selling journey.

There are many signs that a real estate agent is an outstanding listener, such as:

1. Your real estate agent responds to your concerns and questions as quickly as possible.

Let's face it buying or selling a house can be stressful. Fortunately, a real estate agent who is an active listener will do what it takes to help clients alleviate stress time and time again.

An active listener will learn what it's like to walk in another person's shoes. Meanwhile, a real estate agent who actively listens to a homebuyer or home seller will be ready to respond to urgent client requests without delay.

Furthermore, it is important to employ a real estate agent who boasts comprehensive homebuying or home selling experience. With this housing market professional at your disposal, you can get expert responses to your concerns and questions. Then, you'll be better equipped than ever before to make informed homebuying or home selling decisions.

2. Your real estate agent follows up with you regularly.

A real estate agent who understands the value of active listening will follow up with clients regularly. By doing so, this housing market professional can limit the risk of miscommunication and mistakes along the homebuying or home selling process.

In addition, a real estate agent who provides constant updates will take the guesswork out of buying or selling a home. He or she will make it simple for you to streamline the homebuying or home selling process. And as such, this real estate agent will reduce the chance that you'll encounter potential homebuying or home selling roadblocks that otherwise could prevent you from achieving your desired results.

3. Your real estate agent asks questions and requests feedback.

When it comes to choosing a real estate agent, it is vital to select one who asks questions and requests feedback. In fact, this housing market professional may prove to be an amazing listener who will go above and beyond the call of duty to support you in any way possible.

Ultimately, a real estate agent who asks questions wants to learn about a client's homebuying or home selling needs. He or she wants clients to succeed and will dedicate the necessary time and resources to help each client buy or sell a home.

On the other hand, a real estate agent who requests feedback is always searching for ways to improve, and this commitment to excellence usually separates an ordinary real estate agent from an exceptional one.

Kick off the homebuying or home selling process by hiring a real estate agent who knows how to listen to his or her clients. That way, you can increase the likelihood of a successful homebuying or home selling journey.

Depending on where you live, recycling may not be an easy task. Some communities don't even have a local center. And beyond that, reusing something has less of an environmental impact than recycling. So when you can reuse, you absolutely should. But it's not always easy to see treasure when "trash" stands before you.

Here are some simple and creative ways to re-purpose your recyclables for storage.

Coffee Creamer Bottle Salad Sprinkles

Are you trying to add more healthy nuts and seeds to your salads? Make it easy for yourself by re-purposing a creamer bottle. Simply remove the label and wash. Then add things like:

  • Almond slivers
  • Crushed walnuts
  • Chia seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Orange Juice Bottle Watering Can

    After cleaning the bottle, simply use a small drill bit or hammer/nail to bore some tiny holes into the lid. Fill it with water. Screw on the lid tight. And then, turn the bottle at an angle to allow the sprinkles to cascade over your plants.

    Single-Use Plastic Bottle Wastebasket 

    You'll need a couple of metal rings for support here. So look for old furniture or machinery that has them. Then string four bottles together with a wire running through top to bottom. Glue the bottle columns to each other to create a cylinder. Use a recycled piece of wood, metal or hard plastic for the round base, and Voila! 

    Old Desk Recycling Station

    Do you have a table, desk, armoire or dresser that's on its way out? Turn that old wood into several crates. Use them for anything. But they're perfect for recycling.

    Carefully disassemble the furniture. Then cut the wood into slats. Nail those slats together to form a crate. Paint each container with a different vibrant color. Then stencil on a label such as:

  • Paper
  • Cans
  • Bottles
  • Now, when someone visits your home, they immediately sort recyclables into the right bin. 

    Hopefully, these ideas will help you see other recyclables in a new light to create your own up-cycled storage solutions.
