PERSONAL INVENTORY THAT CONTINUES TO GROW MY REAL ESTATE BUSINESS AND BEYOND
 
I always remembered my earlier thoughts of owning my own business. I have always been attracted to the real estate business. I had always worked for “Corporate America” because I was taught that was the safe thing to do. In 2002, I had three things happen to me in 90 days that made me switch to real estate see below
Had first child Purchase my first home Laid off from nice paying job Why am I writing about this incident? It is because I had to really make a decision … (18 comments)

SUNDAY QUOTE
 
"Stay positive, work hard and make it happen." by unknown author
 
I come across people on a weekly basis that seem to be unhappy in life and want to blame everyone else for their unhappiness. Why? I think it is easier for them to blame other people than putting the time into making a good life for oneself and their entire family.
 
Who wants to hand around with a person that complains all the time? Nobody likes a grumpy person. Personally, I have put the work in and stay positive in life. I have so much to be thankful for when it … (24 comments)

STRIKING A BALANCE IN LIFE WHEN IT COMES TO THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS
 
I have to admit that I am a workaholic. I would work seven days a week nonstop if I was single. Work can be very addicting to me because I want to get the job completed. I am very good at what I do when it comes to real estate. Therefore, I have no problem in attracting new business. My grandfather taught me at a young age by saying the following statement see
“Never give up work today because it may not be there tomorrow.”
My grandfather was a hard worker … (36 comments)

TIME TO TAKE CARE OF ITEMS AROUND THE HOME BEFORE MONDAY STARTS
 
We are about to engage another weekend and decisions have to be made between business and home. What am I going to do this weekend? I decided to take care of home items that needed my attention. There are times in our real estate business that we need to take care of the home. Who cuts the barber’s hair? We need to carve this time out.
First, I had to take my truck to the shop because it would not start. Luckily, it was on the battery which was under warranty. … (14 comments)

SUNDAY QUOTE
 
Humility is nothing but truth, and pride is nothing but lying. by St. Vincent de Paul
 
I would like to share the quote above with the group today. It takes a big person to show humility in life. There are times we could really get a big head and be cocky. However, that inner voice is saying no no no. How many of us still listen to our inner voice? I am sure many of us can share a time when we all got out of hand. I find myself being more humble as I get older. Is it really worth … (8 comments)

Many of you know that I had to take a personal leave from ActiveRain for a period of time. I decided to come back to ActiveRain last April of 2016 since I resurrected by real estate brokerage called Real Estate and Beyond located in Phoenix, Arizona. The only way I knew how to market and obtain business was to blog on ActiveRain.
My personal goal was to be in the Top 100 of ActiveRain bloggers when I first started to blog. I believe when I started to blog I was at number 191 of all … (19 comments)

We all have that special place when meeting clients for breakfast. I would like to introduce a local restaurant named The Good Egg. The food is always fresh and the servers are always courteous and helpful whenever I eat at this establishment. My clients are always have a great time when meeting me for breakfast.
 
I have the same breakfast two eggs, two toast, bacon and hash browns. We need to add the unlimited coffee flows which is very much needed when working in real estate. There are days we put in fifteen hour days. The orange juice is fresh and … (27 comments)

HARRY'S TOP 5 ARIZONA ESTATE PLANNING MISTAKES
 
How many people have a living trust? How many people reading this post have an estate plan in place in case they die at any given time? This is a serious matter for many people. Humans think they have plenty of time and will do it later down the road. That is the wrong attitude to have during these times. Probate takes time and money.

I take time each Sunday to find a motivational quote to get me excited for the new week. I believe we all need motivation at times so we continue to move in the right direction in our lives in business, personal and spiritual. The only way is to continue to move forward.

HARRY’S TOP FIVE WAYS TO STAY POSITIVE DURING DIFFIFULT TIMES
 
How many of us get depressed at times? All we hear on the media is negative news on a daily basis. Where does one get filled up with positive energy? It is not the national media. I have thrown my television into the garbage. I refuse to participate in the negative news coming across it. The real estate industry has been taking a hit across America. I have talked to several agents that are depressed and down on their luck. What does one do?

The unexamined life is not worth living. By Socrates
 
Many people across the world are celebrating Easter for religious purposes. Also, today is a day for self reflection in my opinion. I love reading quotes from other people to relate to my world. I was searching for a quote when I came across the one above. It states that an unexamined life is not worth living. That is so true.

LOCAL MARKET REPORTS MAKES THE PHONES RING
 
It seems every local real estate market is crazy this time of year. Many cities across America are experiencing low inventory, mortgage rates are low and there is a high demand for quality homes for first time home buyers. How do we attract more business for real estate? One of the ways I have learned to obtain more sellers and buyers has been monthly market reports about Phoenix.
I am using a program named RBI. It is the paid version via my multiple listing service. It provides the following data for me see below

LET’S GET REAL IN APRIL NO FOOLING AROUND ABOUT IT DO THE WORK
I am sure many of us remember when we first began our real estate career. We were fresh and hungry for business. Corporate America failed me. So, I decided to go into real estate to be my own boss. Wow, I had quite the learning curve. I was mentored for two years straight before I decided to be on my own. I negotiated a 70/30 split on my own deals and 50/50 split on working my mentor’s referrals. I soaked up all his knowledge when it came to working … (32 comments)

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
by Alexander Graham Bell
 
How many times in ones life has that one door closed that we really wanted and thought it was a sure thing? Then, we feel disappointed, angry and try to find the way to open the closed door.
