bruce keith: I Can't Believe This is Happening to Me! - 06/23/15 11:50 PM
This post was written by real estate coach and IXACT Contact partner Bruce Keith.
Ever have one of those weeks where “the sky is falling” and nothing seems to go right? Sometimes no matter what you do the chips don’t fall your way. That hot new listing you were hoping for signs up with a competitor, your best buyer lead decides to put things off for six months, even your car turns against you and breaks down on the way to work! It happens… these are the things that seemingly are sent to test us. It’s almost as if the universe wants … (1 comments)

bruce keith: Things Always Even Out - 06/12/15 02:24 AM
Amazing but True… when things aren’t going your way do you ever think that “the gods have conspired against me”? Ever wonder when two or three disappointing things happen in a row that “I feel ‘ snake bit’ or maybe I’m just unlucky”?
The fact is, in the long haul – things always even out. When you have a streak of misfortune, you can expect an equally exciting streak of good fortune in the very near future. Here is a real life example of things evening out:

bruce keith: 5 Great Sales Tips from Steve Jobs - 05/01/15 01:43 AM
I'm pleased to share this post from Real Estate Trainer and IXACT Contact Partner, Bruce Keith.
Here are 5 great Sales Tips from Steve Jobs that I know you will enjoy: 1. Do not compete on price – compete on value… Consider the way retailers like Costco operates. Almost everything is discounted from the competition. Their televisions are sold primarily based on price. Very few purchasers spend time checking out the various features offered by the manufacturers – the lowest price is the main buying criteria. Now translate that concept into you having a listing agreement signed at full commission. When you show extra value, your Seller … (3 comments)

bruce keith: How to THINK BIG for Your Real Estate Business - 04/21/15 05:46 AM
As 2015 moves forward, it’s a good idea to step back and re-evaluate your perception of your upper limits. What I mean by “upper limits” is…are you thinking BIG enough?

Here’s a few examples where most Salespeople aren’t thinking BIG enough:
1. Not maintaining tight control of your morning routine… two quick  suggestions to help you with this ever present challenge: a) set a minimum standard … (4 comments)
