working from home: The Power of Being Still - 03/27/20 11:34 AM

The Power of Being Still
There is no doubt we are in unprecedented times. For most of us, this creates a heightened degree of stress and uncertainty. Over a third of the country has been asked to stay home and our once booming economy has come screeching to a halt. When can any of us remember being told by the government not to go to work?
While this seems somewhat terrifying, we all know that it is for the greater good of all of us. So here we have it, we are being told to stay home and be … (15 comments)

working from home: What Can History Teach Us About Real Estate? - 03/25/20 09:56 AM

What Can History Teach Us About Real Estate?
There is no doubt that the last few weeks have been a challenge in many of our strongest real estate markets. In many places we have strong buyer demand, but are unable to satisfy that need because of the demand for social distancing.
We have MLS services in some markets that are not allowing open houses. Some MLS are not even allowing new listings to be added - for the greater good. I have agents asking me about their buyers who had great jobs even a week ago who now may … (3 comments)

Anxiety or Covid-19: What is the Real Danger to Your Business?
There are many ways to react about the virus breakout. It doesn't seem to matter where you go - the news is talking about it everywhere. It is completely normal to feel concerned, unsure, nervous, worried, and more.
However, the reality is that there is not a lot that any of us can do about the virus other than be informed and be aware of the things that we can do to keep ourselves and our families safe. From a business perspective it may seem like there is … (15 comments)

working from home: Is Your Home Office Costing You Money? - 02/18/20 02:26 PM

Is Your Home Office Costing You Money?
When I first started my real estate career well over two decades ago, real estate agents did not work from home. They worked in cubicles in offices and shared work space. There wasn't even an option to work from home.
With the expansion of the internet, apps, email, and dashboards available from the coffee-shop down the street or across the globe, I have watched the industry change dramatically. One of the biggest make-it or break-it changes has been the work from home rage.
