Hi, I am Bette Hochberger, CPA, CGMA. On today’s Finance Friday, we have the author of Seller Mistakes: What you were never told about selling your home and why it should matter to you, Michael B. Bell, who will say to us all the secrets that your real estate agent does not want you to know. Then, we will hear all about his journey in writing his book, Seller Mistakes, and he will give us an overview of the primary mistakes.

Michael was not shy in telling me that writing this book was hard labor and that it would most likely be his last time writing a book. All the more reason for us to read this hard-won bestseller considering it will be the last of its kind.

Michael Bell is a first-time, and as he says, a last-time author of the international best-selling book Seller Mistakes.  It hit #3 on the Wall Street Journal list in 2021.  Michael is a full-time real estate broker in Pasadena, California, for Sotheby’s International Realty and is ranked in the top .01% of all agents nationwide.  Michael told me he had hoped to sell a few hundred books, but the book has taken off and has sold almost 38,000 copies.  What he writes about and what we will talk about has resonated, so I asked him to join us.  Check out the video above if you want to hear more!

One of the stand-out reviews – “Michael provides first-hand expertise to sell your home for top dollar in this well-written book.” – Philip White, President & CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty

However, Seller Mistakes supposedly made a few realtors angry, so if you are curious about what the fuss is about, you can grab a free copy of the book on his website or order online! Also, if you want to hear about Seller Mistake’s author Michael Bell’s weird hobbies, be sure to watch the video.
