flagler beach real estate: NO IS NOT A FOUR LETTER WORD! - 04/29/11 05:19 AM
Saying No is not always easy.  We know that if it is illegal, immoral or will hurt someone, we will say no.  There are other times that it is not so clear.
I recently attended a meeting where Richard Flint was a featured speaker.  Mr. Flint is a highly regarded motivational speaker.  I bought his tapes as well as his daily "morning minute".  The other day, Mr. Flint's message was on the "power of saying "no" and not be afraid to use it".  He went on to say that "as much as most know when they should say "no", most are … (1 comments)

flagler beach real estate: I FIRED A CUSTOMER--AND IT FELT GOOD! - 04/23/11 09:49 AM

flagler beach real estate: GET FACE TO FACE! - 04/03/11 05:39 AM
I like to get in the car and make personal sales cold calls on perspective new listings.  Many of my fellow Realtors think I'm crazy for liking this sales tool, but I've been pretty successful with it and highly recommend it for more listings.
Getting face to face with a potential new listing customer offers lots of positive things mailings and phone calls don't.  I use personal sales calls mostly for expired listings and FSBO's that I target as especially good ones to have.  Showing up at a potential listing's front door armed with my pre-listing booklet is totally unexpected by … (6 comments)
