Kick Back or Kick Ass? - 09/22/09 10:57 AM
There are 100 days left in 2009. You have a choice right now to coast through the Fall and Holidays or to take charge and decide this will be the best quarter of the year. While many agents are feeling the busy part of the year is now gone and they "know" things are slower over the holidays....the smart agents are seeing where the opportunities are and seizing them. Instead of kicking back, you can ramp up a blitz for your sphere, your farm area, or your client base. Plan a client appreciation party or just take a client out to (8 comments)

Seems the whole world has shifted into another energy field as September has rolled in, the kids are back in school and the weather is cooling....It seems natural to take a cue from the universe and do some re-evaluating and shifting with our businesses. It's a good time to look out to the end of the year and back from the beginning to assess •· where you are and what you are committed to accomplishing by year's end. •· What are you doing that is REMARKABLE? •· What is working? •· What can you add? For many of my clients, I (5 comments)
Via Hercel Spears (Advanced Realty Education): Speaking strictly to listing agents/brokers of REOs, are you sure you want the liability? In Arizona, the latest craze is going after the REO listings. Obviously, there is money to be made in any market as long as you are able to adapt to the changes in the market and right now with REOs dominating the share of properties for sale, a lot of agents are jumping in with both feet to get these listings. This post is geared to Arizona agents, as I am not familiar with (3 comments)
