Handy Tool Kit Series – Hammer

Lamar-Hunt-Jr.-Hammer-300x225Founder/Managing Partner Lamar Hunt Jr. calls the hammer the big toe of his Handy Tool Kit.  It almost seems so basic that telling someone in real estate to carry a hammer can sound ridiculous.  However, many folks in real estate fail to carry a hammer.  So, when they come across a nail sticking out somewhere, they can’t do anything about it.  Or if they need to hammer in a nail, again they strike out.  Lamar likes to carry a hammer that’s not too heavy because he’s not going to be framing a house.  But too small a hammer won’t get the job done.  Finding the right hammer for you takes a little shopping but can be fun too.  No telling what else you may find there.  Another tip for finding a hammer is to buy one with a wooden handle or rubber grip over metal because a bare metal handle heats up in hot summers and grabbing it will be a most unpleasant experience.  So, always carry a hammer in your Handy Tool Kit.  For more real estate tips, see our blog at  http://lorettoproperties.com/.  You can also call us at 913-236-2902 if you have a property to sell.
