Is it Time To Team? (part 3 of 97) - 06/24/07 10:44 PM
The team topic seems to generate more than it's share of interest. Back in December, I wrote a blog post called To Team or not to Team? I still get emails and comments on that post and my orginal post How to create a winning team. Bob Carney's post So When is it Time to start a Team.... created some good discussion on the team topic. The interest in Bob's post gave me this nudge to expand on the topic a little more. And then just today there were several rainers asking for help about whether to form a team. Eastern Connecticut hasn't grown many teams. We have a few agents who call themselves (55 comments)

I went on a listing appointment today. As we went through the kitchen, I noticed one of my calendars on the refrigerator. Mr. Seller had been receiving my "stuff" for 18 years - calendars, magnets, postcards, newsletters. Mr. Seller was proud of the updates he had made to the house since I sold it to him 18 years ago. He had me convinced. When I went back to the office and went through the file from 1989, I realized I hadn't sold Mr. Seller the house after all. In 1989, I added Mr. Seller as an "orphan" in my database. The agent who had (53 comments)
K-9 Clean Up Service comes to town Gales Ferry resident Anne Marie Beers stopped by my office today to place an ad in my "I Love Ledyard" newspaper. I was fascinated by her new business, Pooper Troopers, which was born about 4 months ago. As advertised, Pooper Troopers "takes away what your dog leaves behind". Anne Marie was a good sport and even laughed when I expressed my concern about what a crappy job she had. I suspect she's heard it a million times and my comment didn't come off as very original. Besides being a fun person, I loved the fact that Anne Marie donates a portion of every (41 comments)
