Today I moved my Active Rain blog from Dallas TX over to Milton MA where I live. Turns out that no one in Milton blogs so I went to the head of the line on that platform in that area. While these rankings measure only blogging and not real estate success you can’t get too excited about being featured. My goal here in Milton is the exact same goal I established in Dallas when I landed there on Jan 6, 2010. I will share with my readers timely and pertinent information about real estate and the real estate industry. Using stories from experiences I have or have been shared with me I will help the home buyer/seller with their process.
Make no mistake, home selling and buying is a process that has an incredible amount of crucial details to get right. That is why the real estate industry created the Realtor® distinction. This is a person who has been tested on the process and procedures from a legal and financial point of view. A Realtor® is bound by a code of ethics and behavior. It is true that anyone can buy or sell a house if they can jump through simple hoops, but that doesn’t make you good at it, or a professional. There is no doubt in my mind that there are some people not named Tom Brady who could hit Wes Walker in the flats for a gain, but that doesn’t mean you want to have that person control your game for you. A professional will spend time daily improving their knowledge and their skills. These are the kinds of stories I will share. The goal is the same, to get your house sold for the most money in the quickest time, no matter what the market. Period.
I have some personal hoops I need to jump through as I set up my computers and reconnect with my clients and prospects. Just setting up all the computers and printers and routers and other various machines that we use daily is a daunting task. I am close to getting most of it rigged to work. I will work on getting it rigged for efficiency as I go along. A Realtor® is a disciplined professional that follows a set of time blocked activities that produce results, so this week I need it to work. Next week I will tweak it to work better.
I love the end of summer in New England it is possibly the most beautiful place in the world at this time. One thing I like about it is the local foods. Milton has a Farmer’s Market throughout the summer. Yesterday I went to Milton Village and bought some fresh, organic vegetables that I bought from the person who planted and grew the food. I don’t think it gets any better than that.
I am still working out my schedule over the next couple of weeks as I settle in. I look forward to sharing another story tomorrow. Make it a great day.
What would you do today, if you knew you could not fail? What actions would you take, what would you share and how would you treat the people around you. Storyteller Marketing in Real Estate by Larry Lawfer will explore the real estate industry in MA and beyond through the eyes of the community it's people and stories.
