Are you running a “Things to do deficit?” Like a gerbil on a wheel – Running running running running and not getting anywhere? In fact, you might even have a list of lists . . . Of course we’ve got our list for home and for work and for hobby and for “Honey-do” and . . . Conceivably, we could all...

Some people have philosophical conflict with simplicity. These are the folks who have a deeply pathological need for complexity and complication. If things are smooth and easy – well – These folks just gotta stir things up. I believe Murphy has recruited these otherwise seemingly normal minions t...

I believe the best marketing tool for selling a house is GREAT pictures. It is my opinion that posting any pictures that are less than GREAT actually harm the marketing effort. So . . . It’s better not to publish ANY pictures than to publish less than great pictures . . . To some degree if those ...

What’s getting your oil? How much of what you do is because you are silencing disruptions? Who’s that person who makes all that noise just to get your attention, and you give them your full attention only to discover that it wasn’t important. When we let ourselves get into the habit of going thro...

The pressure to BOYCOTT the SuperBowl was prevalent. Yep! The ire at the NFL for not policing its own players for refusing to stand for the National Anthem continues. Of course, they didn’t help things by refusing a patriotic ad that said only “Please Stand!” I understand the issues, and while I ...

Do you remember when you were a “newbie?” The ink was still wet on your brand new License to sell, and you were (likely with some serious trepidation) on the precipice taking that last step into the unknown. You interview a few Principal Brokers and make your choice . . . There’s a flurry of “thi...

I asked 2 simple questions, and the response was an excruciatingly long sales pitch monologue. I had already decided to do business with this company (and probably still will), but the “Customer Service Representative” very nearly talked me out of it. I endured 28 minutes and 59 seconds during wh...
The title of this blog post is most definitely NOT me speaking. The words: “I don’t need to go to any classes because I know what I’m doing” came from the mouth of a Real Estate Sales person who had just committed several “infractions” while negotiating a transaction. Misuse of forms and misinter...

In every conceivable market condition, there are people who thrive. The “Real” answer to the question: “How’s the market?” should be: “It’s what I choose it to be.” If you think it’s slowing . . . it is . . . even as other sales Professionals are ROCKING lots of sales. If you think it’s a CRAZY b...
