A word to the wise. The Florida Association of Realtors contract (and I'm sure others) clearly states that all days referred to are business days, Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays excluded. Often agents write "closing in 60 days" meaning 60 calendar days, not business days. This can present ...

In 1 hour I leave for a funeral for the father of an associate in my office.  He died at 66 from a massive brain tumor.  Events like these really make you stop and appreciate what you have.  I'm fortunate to have a great family, awesome friends, a bountiful income, financial security, and good he...

Sometimes you read something on Active Rain, and you'd swear you wrote it, or at least thought it before! John Novak in a recent blog here on Active Rain got me thinking about my "Big Why" experience. (a Big Why is referred to in Gary Keller's book and described in John's earlier blog)  If you ha...

Forget about getting training from a company or brand. Often, you just get the wrong training or bad information. Yes, they should teach you how to fill out a contract or use a lockbox, but after that, you're on your own.  As a new agent, you enter this profession and operate in one of two ways. ...

Way back when, I used to be the test guinea pig in my office. I would try everything that was new, looked cool or was just offered for sale with a good pitch! I bought every speaker's tapes and marketing/sales systems. (I'm sure many of you can relate) Most of that stuff sat on the shelf or in a ...

Ok so Ernesto didn't quite blow like the media expected or wanted! Lousy for them because it makes for good news! South Florida survived (this time). It's sad though how this insignificant storm overshadowed the 1 year anniversary of Katrina (at least in our market). I'm hopeful that the storm re...

Something that has concerned me lately, perhaps even alarmed me, is the way our profession is embracing technology! While technology is a wonderful thing, let's not forget that one can get overwhelmed. Let's also consider that agents, especially new ones, tend to be gullible and believe that they...

Today, regardless of the impending hurricane, I have a listing appointment to take the largest (both physically and price-wise) listing of my career! The seller has already sold a pricy home with me.  He asked my mother what she would take off if he gave us this listing? She replied "everything b...

Here's the problem with all of the "hurricane" hype! It's bad enough that we have an over supply of inventory. It's even worse that there aren't many buyers to be found! As Realtors, we must deal with restless, anxious & frustrated Sellers. They blame us for their homes not selling as quickly as ...
