services: PROMOTING YOU OR THE TRANSACTION? - 10/18/15 07:56 AM
How about both? The subject to discuss is when you are listing a property for sale OR when you are designing a business card, should your picture be on it? It is not unusual to see an agents picture on a for sale sign. But the questioned being begged is...isn't it about the property and nothing else?
Let's look at business cards. If you were to go around giving out little wallet size pictures of yourself, people may or may not take them and most would just throw them away and shrug you off. But add a title or a function … (4 comments)

services: WHATS IN IT FOR YOU? - 09/25/15 03:53 PM
ME! I am in it for you. I am here for you to help you accomplish your goal, task, move, leap or progress. I stand ready, willing and able to follow your direction and help you accomplish your vision or complete a need. You see as a consumer, we are always looking for what is in it for me wherever me (you) goes.
Often, some products and services spend too much time boasting about themselves instead of the benefits they bring as it applies to the end user, consumer or product purchase. The person buying wants to know what they gain … (7 comments)

services: THE CONSUMER MAY NOT KNOW - 08/07/15 07:00 AM
There are so many businesses and services for just about anything having to do with everything. As a consumer, we only get interested when we reach the point that we need said products or services. Then, where to go, what to do, and why is our first steps and the beginning of a journey to find out. For some....
It's daunting and for others it falls into place. A lot depends on the subject matter. A home buyer decides they want to buy. Way before that point, they had an awareness and inquired nonchalantly and in a pace befitting to the curiosity of … (4 comments)

services: FREE REAL ESTATE SERVICES? - 08/01/15 11:37 AM
Friends and family even neighbors or a co-worker may approach a Real Estate agent and ask them to help them buy or sell something. The premise is usually that we are close, there is a need and I need your help but I cannot afford to pay you. In fact, I need all the funds coming or going and then some. Will you help?
In coming to me, you have confirmed what I always thought and that is that your thinking is sound in choosing me. Good first step. There is much to be done so lets get to it! I need to ask … (14 comments)

services: IF YOU GOBBLE I'LL TALK TURKEY - 05/20/15 11:39 AM
I can get right to the point or proceed in the introduced flow. I am open and eager to find the connection that brings us together. How refreshing is it then when I find someone who can hit the ground running and talk the relevant issues. These point pioneers, brave souls who get right to it resonate with me
People all have their own landing approach and take-off as well. I get it. However, in Real Estate, among those that practice whatever field they are in, you will find them most eager to jump in and unleash their skills. I find that … (4 comments)

services: YOU ARE THE POINT OF SALE - 09/24/14 12:32 PM
A Real Estate agent is the receptionist, message taker, cashier, customer service department, complaints department, document preparation department, facilitator, mediator, negotiator, fiduciary, confidant and buck stops here person all rolled into one and quite a bit more too
You may not know this but when you meet a potential client or principal, that is exactly what is running through their mind at one time or another. Why not become pro-active and display your wares when engaging and interacting in the business world and touch on these most important points?

services: UNHITCH THE PITCH WITH RICH - 09/09/14 12:50 PM
For those fence sitters and late bloomers, for those that procrastinate, hesitate and break a date, those that want to but there want to doesn't want to, this post is for you especially. Then there are those that didn't know there was a contest going on to help establish a personal and professional tag-line
No two people individually are alike. Lets start with that. Then, we may all be able to do the same things like cooking, cleaning, traveling, speaking, studying, and some even go into specialty type work like legal, real estate and doctoring. However, each person remains … (7 comments)

services: PERFORM OR TAKE THE HEAT - 08/26/14 10:51 AM
If you are offering a service, product or assistance, then the show is on and you are the star. You have my full attention. I have accepted your offer and now want to enjoy the fruits of my choice. Woo, wow and ooh me! Be warned however that my time is money and if you don't perform, if your ducks don't entertain as instructed, you are going to catch flak. In today's customer service arena...a second bite at the apple?
You have to stand behind what you say and do. NO EXCUSES or explanations because we didn't meet socially. In business, I want what … (2 comments)

services: 20,000 FREE SUBSCRIBERS CLICK HERE? - 07/20/14 10:28 AM
I get these Tweets as they call them from people who can promise me thousands of followers if I click and inquire. Okay. Then, I am reminded of how you can buy "likes" on Facebook for a price. In the end, we are presenting what? What is having all these people following you really mean? I understand in the world of politics, it may mean votes
In the social arenas, does it mean you are the best friend to have or the most popular? Do consumers who follow these numbers say to themselves...Oh, this person must be good or do a … (5 comments)

services: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR - 07/16/14 07:25 AM
Simply put that when we go to a doctor, we are wanting them to handle and direct a certain outcome that will better us and we gladly pay for this opportunity. Same with hiring an attorney. There are times we need to defend or take a stand and we hire up to get that job done. In Real Estate, people who are going move product valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars are trusting agents to make this happen
In all examples listed above, a fee is charged for services. It is understood where the buck stops and starts in … (4 comments)

services: THE FLY ON THE WALL - 07/09/14 07:06 AM
Here we are in ACTIVERAIN-LAND logging in, posting, blogging and commenting about all sorts of relevant business and personal issues and it is just like visiting with a newspaper only this is live and has more content of interest streaming in all the time. Consider however that what if someone was reading that same paper while looking over your shoulder as you read it?
The fly I mention in the title is the PUBLIC who is listening in on what ACTIVERAINERS are doing and saying in regards to the different subjects. We are being observed as we communicate back and forth making our … (4 comments)

services: 5 reasons for all real estate agents to start considering new careers. - 07/03/14 07:01 AM

Here is a relevant post that should warrant discussion by those in the business at this time. At some point, a software application will be developed that will enable someone to A B C the steps necessary to sell or buy REAL ESTATE. Then, there are so many supporting services that would love to help the "go it a loner" in exchange for their services. Lastly, anywhere there is big money changing hands, there will always be controversy and at some point, people for whatever reason may not want to part with tens of thousands of dollars so easily. I will … (5 comments)

There are people out there that take enormous pride in what they do and how they do it and then they apply a math formula to it. When through, that is what they charge for their services. To these master craftsmen, what could be more normal or simpler than that?
That's why I always blink heavy when I hear anyone trying to over negotiate or focus only on price leaving outcome, quality and even customer service out of the consideration loop and job. Somethings cost what they cost and that is what the people doing the work have to have as payment.

services: ITS WHAT YOU DO WITH IT PEOPLE REMEMBER - 06/03/14 08:34 AM
Gifts, talents, skills and abilities abound all over the planet and are easily found. Wherever there is a human being, you will find these in abundance with little exception i.e. they are not being used, used to their fullness or used incorrectly
I always marvel when I see someone doing something so well. It could be singing, sewing, baking, assisting or providing a service or product and to see the way they contribute to what is being offered remains memorable if their skills bank is activated and employed
One person giving their "best" or all of what they were … (2 comments)

services: WHAT IS USER FRIENDLY - 05/12/14 06:56 AM
It is not taking a person and using them for all its worth...LOL. Ease of use or user friendly is a good subject for anything really. When I engage something, I expect it to be as represented. It should compliment and enhance whatever it is
People who offer professional services are included in this too. If you are offering professional services, everything being offered should be about the consumer and their wants and needs and it should be a pleasure to interact or exchange time or money while receiving your services
Whats in … (8 comments)

services: DOING WHAT COMES NATURAL SELLS - 03/18/14 07:11 AM
Effort toward anything is like a force. The one exerting the effort is influencing the subject for a reason. An outcome from a spent force is expected and the results is what we assess. Spinning your wheels or repeating something over and over and expecting change is misspent effort
Being yourself is one of the most underrated activities we face not just during our life times but on a daily basis. We try to perform or advertise who or what we are and the value that comes from it. But there is much more going on besides the activity being offered. Its … (6 comments)

How one begins something determines how it will turn out and then some. Often we find that while we think something makes sense, what about our target audience? The public is a mix of different people in different places with different wants and needs. This makes marketing crucial
Have you ever purchased or ordered something that came with a set of instructions that were not clear? Lets back up and start from the beginning. Advertising went to work and you liked the product or service and bought it. GOOD. You got it home or ordered it and it wasn't a plug & play or wasn't … (5 comments)

services: PAYING FOR EXPERIENCED EYES AND EARS - 12/31/13 07:23 AM
For rent: One professional pair of eyes, ears and brain that can help you with any subject that you may not be too familiar with. Don't have the time? No inclination? Well then hire-up! That goes for anything that you cannot do yourself. In some cases, it is a must and in others, optional
Take buying a home. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake. The purchase commitment is anywhere from 5 years to 30 and what you don't know here can truly hurt and well as haunt in the times to come. While doable a mistake here can cause … (6 comments)

services: NO COMMISSIONS TO PAY? - 11/15/13 07:48 AM
These four words can bring you untold misery. Investors love to point out to many homeowners that they buy direct and then they emphasize NO COMMISSIONS. This means you save money but in reality you may be entering into a transaction that can cost you-money or losses. Those who try to save money to make money will find that the sword being used cuts both ways
I recently talked to a buyer who was vulnerable, excited, willing and naive and had a lot of questions and one thing stood out in my mind. You need an agent to make sure that your interests go … (4 comments)
