About the real estate market today, Gary Keller (the Keller of Keller-Williams) said at a meeting not long ago, "I am not going to say you are in a good situation...you are in a tough spot."
Possibly, maybe, could "tough spots" really be challenges and/or blessings in disguise?
Keller wonders how folks really can get into telling what makes their " tough spot" tougher than someone else's . And Keller is NOT one of the complainers.
He has experienced the ups and downs in the real estate market before. He has weathered those storms. As a result, he can offer path-lights to illuminate a reliable way when shifts occur. In fact, he has written about getting on the path that leads to balance for real estate professionals walking through those "tough spots" in his book,
SHIFT, How Top Real Estate Agents Tackle Tough Times.
There is more than strategy in this book.
There are more than the "12 proven tactics to help you make the most of any market."
There is a bold challenge! (check out the video that follows)
I like the challenge, how about you? I like the idea that, as Keller puts it, " ...you can't monkey around..." For me two important points he makes are:
1) "You have to act your WAGE."
2) "You have to live the calendar and the focus of a high achiever"
As a professional who sees my role as a person who provides objective fiduciary counsel, I know that these two points work. ..and thriving in any real estate market can be the much desired outcome.
AND, something I know. During ups-and-downs in my life, on many levels, and during the great and small shifts there are GIFTS http://giftofshift.com/activerain and there is inspiration is available-if/when I seek it.
