CONSISTENTLY Not Farming? (You reap what you sow?) - 08/29/10 10:56 PM
I have alot riding on this...well, not really, but....Have you ever had a slow month? Why do you think that was? Maybe it was the economy, poor timing, not enough hard work on your part or maybe, just maybe it was because the few months before that you weren't prospecting? Well, if you think that could be a part of it, then we have something here. I believe it's important for all of us to be farming, all the time. Even the biggest producers I know, who have been in the business much longer than I are always farming. They (0 comments)
Good Ethics Get to Work Wherever They Want...Bad Ethics Follow You EVERYWHERE! - 08/29/10 11:24 AM
Am in the process of expanding my business into the PALM SPRINGS area.... have aligned myself with Windermere South Palm Springs and was talking with my new Broker the other day...and going about discussing marketing techniques, etc....and was thumbing through magazine ads...and I came across someone who I knew from 20+ years ago. This person used to be in a different industry and has now become a Realtor in the PS area. I remember them and some of the sneaky things they used to do in their prior business. The funniest part of this story was when I pointed my finger at (20 comments)
IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP & SMELL THE CONSISTENCY... - 08/29/10 12:43 AM
I have been in the business for 18+ years and worked extra hard the first 10-12 years and then it was good times and now the past 3 years have been nothing short of challenging. Challenging because of the market values dropping, financing getting more difficult, Buyer's andSeller's mental states/worries, and also because of the media's focus on the negative. In short, it's time to wake up and smell THE CONSISTENCY!
If you send out a newsletter, do it more CONSISTENTLY... If you call or visit your clients, now is the time to pull out the stops! This will help us (9 comments)

This was a toughie, actually. Imagine, all the things you've given clients over the years....which one is YOUR FAVORITE???
1) My number one is probably getting all the doors rekeyed by my professional Locksmith. Something about the security of this gift that they have the only keys is such a calming thing to my clients. Also, I love having my professional/mobile Locksmith make them as many key copies as they need.
2) A gift card to Home Goods (not sure if in all states?) ...always fun to see what they bought later and how it (5 comments)
Am I Really Working 24/7? - 08/08/10 06:18 PM
It seems like I'm working alot...anyone else feel that way? Why am I? Is my perfectionism getting in the way? Am I being too much of a control freak?
No. I don't want to waste my time, so I'm putting everything in place to the best of my ability, in order to have a successful outcome/closing. Working alot, hopefully always will pay off? Not necessarily, but read on.... In case it doesn't pay off with the client you did all the work for, you may realize that you'll get a new client where EVERYTHING will just magically come together; easily (28 comments)
