Are You Wasting Some Minutes & Hours Of Your Life? - 04/26/07 03:15 PM
If I were to walk into your office today, would you be able to show me a copy of your business plan or a list of activities that you strive to achieve on a daily basis? Isn't it true that if you don't have a road map, how will you know when you have arrived? I once heard someone say that if you want to earn a certain amount of money in 12 months, why not increase your daily activities and achieve it in 10 months or less and take the rest of the time off throughout the year.One of the ways to (0 comments)
When Is The PERFECT Time To...... - 04/24/07 11:27 AM
When is it the perfect time to touch base with your clients?Right now!Why now?Because your clients may need help and you don't even know it. They normally won't raise their hand and tell you.It's a great way to make a quick call to your past clients and say "hi". Ask them how their family is and ask them if they have any repairs or home improvements they plan on doing soon. You can provide them with reliable home improvement contractor's names.Also, go a little deeper with them and see how things are going with their mortgage situation.With the mortgage financing industry (1 comments)
Awoke In The Middle of the Night! - 04/17/07 12:03 PM
It's 2:57am, Tuesday morning!I just returned from an Internet Marketing Conference in Atlanta tonight. I drove home from the airport at 12:35am.I've been asleep for a little while and...I rolled over in bed and now I'm wide awake, thinking about real estate strategies that can help other agents. Since I'm not able to fall back asleep with my mind racing, I thought I'd take time to write down my thoughts. I've been a successful Realtor for 22 years now and have also been coaching real estate agents for over three years. There are so many thoughts running through my head right (4 comments)
Ohio Senate Bill 185 - 04/09/07 10:58 PM
Ohio real estate agents, This information was recently presented to agents in our real estate office by Terry Monnie of Classic Title Agency, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236 (513) 256-4779. He gave me permission to re-print this information here. Much of what follows you have heard before, but the impact of this new "Homebuyer's Protection Act" is so far-reaching that it bears repeating. This legislation is the most significan for the title industry in years. The "Homebuyer's Protection Act" has five primary facets: Owner's Title Insurance Disclosure: For all residential transactions involving a purchase in which a lender's policy of title insurance is bing issued, but NO owner's policy (0 comments)
Where Is Your Road Map Taking You? - 04/09/07 10:40 AM
I want to share a success strategy with you that can make a huge difference in your life.One caveat, though...It will only work for you, if you DO it!I was recently talking with an experienced agent, who had done very well over the years, but in the past year or so he was struggling in his real estate business.His transactions were getting harder and harder to close and it seemed like people were more difficult to work with. (Can you relate to this?)After feeling beat down for so long, it's now hard for him to get excited in his business. He (1 comments)
When Millionaires Talk, Are You Listening? - 04/06/07 02:56 PM
I recently listened to a 45 minute call, where 6 MILLIONAIRES were sharing their thoughts about what it takes to become a millionaire.The host of the call was John Assaraf. He may be familiar to you, because he's been involved as Regional Director of RE/MAX of Indiana and also was co-owner of Bamboo.com before it was bought out by IPIX (a virtual tour product). John is now a success coach in San Diego. I met him awhile backat a local Barnes & Noble at a book signing.I took several pages of notes, writing as fast as I could to keep up. I want to (5 comments)
Give "Value" When Writing A Comment! - 04/03/07 12:09 AM
I love how the ActiveRain format allows us to communicate with each other. But there is a simple concept can greatly increase the value of what ActiveRain members and readers can learn from this network. When you read a post that inspires you to take time out of your day or night and write a comment, why not add your opinion about it or share a different way that something may work or tell a story that's goes along with the post. I believe that a comment that only says "Good job" or "Way to go" and you get some points is a (10 comments)
3 Great Reasons For An Open House & How To Collect... - 04/02/07 08:20 PM
Agents hold houses open for many reasons. Some of them are more self-serving than others, but it's important to know why people do open houses. You really need to decide why you're doing them. It's not a good reason, when it's just to satisfy your seller, you come unprepared and you stick an open sign up 5 minutes before the open house. Reason #1: To sell the listing! You actually have to work at this strategy...from the staging of the property to knowing the facts about the property to being mentally prepared to give all of your energy to the prospects (3 comments)
