excellent business habits: Positioning Oneself for Success. - 08/27/19 02:36 PM
Positioning Oneself for Success.
 
 
There are many species of Praying Mantis, who possess the ability to remain elusive to the naked eye of all passerby, deeming closer consideration. As a means of survival, they achieve daily goals, without fail.
 
Self-motivation plays a large part to attaining prosperity. Unlike the praying Mantis, we must be seen and heard in order to be effective for clients who depend on us to guide them toward their own successes.
 
These 3 things may help:
1. Consistent methods - Create trust relationships with clients through dependability. 
2. Follow through - Value other people's time, committing sincerely to time-frames.
3. Effective preparation - Be on the ready to be the source for all local information.
 
It takes more than just hanging … (6 comments)

Sneaking a peek...
 
 
Nature instinctively knows when to perform on time, every time. Now is the time to take a look to ensure that business goals are met day-to-day and that customer satisfaction is at an all-time high. Follow up, follow through and be available so past and present clients will be looking at you, rather than another attention getter!
 
Nature's sunshine sneaking a peek at it's peak to pique a picker. ~Wanda Kubat-Nerdin in Nerdin Gardens

excellent business habits: Don't get caught "Riding Dirty!" Redux - 06/10/19 06:34 AM
A question was recently asked in the Q & A section about whether it is important for real estate professionals to have a nice car?  Based on experience, my answer was...If it is kept clean - inside and out - it should not matter. 
 
When clients are coming to town, I will still wash my car whether they ride with me or not. Every single time it is pertinent to make a great first impression, we all know that we very rarely get a second chance to prove ourselves.
 
And your thoughts?

excellent business habits: They have to learn it and earn it. Durn it! - 04/24/19 08:45 AM
They have to learn it and earn it. Durn it!
 
Whose responsibility is it to ensure favorable outcomes for newbie agents, when 75% fail prior to their 2nd year? Success takes determination, self-motivation, self-sufficiency and self-reliance.
 
Parents who coddled their kids, enabling dependence on everyone else for everything, did them no favors. I refuse to take on a parenting role for adults who decline to help themselves in the workplace.
 
Besides, some have unrealistic expectations. They try to outsmart the industry by taking shortcuts and forgoing the work, lacking the necessary drive to consistently pursue opportunities as they present.
 
They are responsible for successes and failures. Not me. Not you!
 
Here are some reasons failure is imminent:

excellent business habits: Love Letters, To Be or Not to Be? - 03/31/19 05:56 PM
Love Letters, To Be or Not to Be?
 
A short while ago, I asked a question in the Q & A section of ActiveRain: An agent wants to include a home buyer family bio, including photos, when submitting an offer to purchase to garner an emotional response. Do you include it, yes or no?
 
 
The following is what I discovered after calling the Utah Legal Hotline. Love letters are to be presented with the REPC by buyers looking to capture an emotional response putting their offer in a more favorable light.
  
Despite how you may feel personally, it is the seller's decision whether to accept the letter as … (5 comments)

A leader knows the way, the boss steers the trip.
 
 
Our granddaughter's Kenslee Mae and Peanut are best friends who love and respect each other. Peanut unexpectedly picked up the pace, stretching the lease taut. The result; Kenslee fell, scratching the palm of her hands.
 
Which reminds me: Effective teamwork means all are on board, working for the same goals. Changes in direction are communicated when a transaction takes an unexpected turn so all may react, moving forward together.
 
Happy Monday all, it's looking good from here!

Looking upward and outward for inspiration. 
 
 
Change is the act of making or becoming different, being an inevitable force. Some people stagnate, getting lost in their distress while others embrace it with anticipated excitement. When less reluctant to change, the easier it is to move forward and once there, the fear is no longer a factor.
 
With change comes growth, so stretch yourself and get out of that comfort zone. Even a cat looks outward and upward for inspiration. Ask Tux!
 
Stretch yourself and always be curious while looking upward and outward for inspiration. ~ Tux the Cool Cat

Will this be the best Jan-YOU-ary yet?
 
Most industry professionals plan ahead by implementing tools to gage success, focusing on desired results and pushing themselves to achieving the goals set forth. So far, I am on track this month.
 
Making phone calls, following up and though with past and present clients allows the pipeline to fill for future business. Continuing to get up, dress up and show up with purpose leads the way to success.
 
Look for insights from other professionals, engage tried-and-true methods, play to individual strengths, use them to produce your own accomplishments and this might be your best Jan-YOU-ary yet!

Upping the Standard From Ordinary to Exemplary!
 
 
In any profession, there are those who put in 110% and then some who get by with minimal effort. Our daughter-in-law is proof that when you consistently embrace the challenge and move forward with confidence, the rewards are endless.
 
We are so very proud of our daughter Devyn and all that has been accomplished during her tour in the United States Navy. Not only has she received a Navy Achievement Medal but also made Junior Sailor of the Year for the Pacific Northwest.
 
She has exceeded her obligation and duties to the Navy and we are excited to see what … (7 comments)

Incredible opportunity begins where uncertainty ends.
 
 
For us humans, maintaining a strong work ethic daily with life's ups and down is pertinent to striking a balance in life. Overcoming feelings of inadequacy or fear are a must.
 
Desire and motivation play a role in successful habits. A strong work ethic matters in the Praying Mantis’ life. Instinctively, each day is taken to the highest potential without fail.
 
As we walked through Nerdin Gardens over the weekend, picking vegetables, there they were, on the ready! Which proves that the work has to be done to gain exceptional results.
 
Don't be upset with the outcome you didn't get because you … (13 comments)

Opening Those Doors to Business Success!
 
Many new recruits must understand that success takes time. These 3 things can push a real estate career forward if implemented or they may close for business upon realizing that opportunity has quickly passed them by:
 
 
SELF-MOTIVATION: Create a daily schedule that is consistent and can be gaged. You must get up, dress up and show up ready to work. Be prepared to work hard for a good while and not get paid immediately.  
KNOWLEDGE: Be the resident real estate agent who possesses up to the minute fact-based information that potential clients can use. A web presence grabs the attention of consumers, plus industry smarts … (30 comments)

A steadfast path.
 
 
A real estate career is met with set expectations on all sides. Success is not immediate, it takes time to build a database and maintain lasting relationships. Trust is key to a longstanding business.
 
Be patiently prepared while pursuing business, always continue to capture new business, it will not magically land in your lap. When you give the best of yourself on your pursuit path, the rest follows!
 
As you journey, seek the light on a steadfast path. ~ Wanda Kubat-Nerdin

Allow your words to land softly...
 
 
When frenzied chaos erupts all around you, be quietly confident, level-headed, ready to move forward as the storm passes. No need to participate in concocted, drummed-up drama. Allow your words to land softly.
 
The choice is yours, of course.
 
While nature's wrath wreaks thunderous havoc, allow your words to land softly. ~ Wanda Kubat-Nerdin

Assumer or Later! 
 
Yesterday, a potential buyer inquired about a land lot listing for sale. He traveled out to the spot where he believed it was located and then called me, describing the surrounding area.
 
He was mistaken, saying there were abandoned cars, trailers and equipment near the lot. I refuted that. Then he said, “You are wrong. When you figure it out, why don't you call me back?”
 
He assumed that I was going to agree with his point of view, which I did not. Again, he was supplied with the same viable information as before. Besides, I always do my ‘home work’ prior to listing.
 
The potential buyer … (8 comments)

excellent business habits: Business before Beauty! - 07/10/18 08:29 AM
Business before Beauty!
 
 
Lately, business has revved up. Most likely due to the recent vacation taken to see our children and gorgeous one year old Gbaby Kenslee Mae. My hairdresser sent a message saying I was due for a hair appointment.
 
That will wait as I am in the middle of two transactions in progress, doing paperwork for six listings plus working on getting a buyer couple under contract. I may end up resembling a beast by the end but do I care?
 
No. My business priorities are intact and the focus is on realizing the clients goals first. Perhaps next week I will do the beauty regimen, unless … (6 comments)

Avoid getting Bee-hind!
 
 
Spring has arrived in St. George, Utah! As I was admiring these tiny pink flowers, a Honeybee came floating by, touching down and dancing among them all. It reminded me of how others rely on successsul outcomes. 
 
A Honeybee's determined work ethic ensures future days. Clean air, sunny days and mild temperatures play a large part, though when there is a goal to be met, no excuses are legitimate enough to prevent the intended purpose.
 
No room for failure when so many are dependent!

Anything with a mouth can bite!
 
 
There is much participation as a member of a gardening group on Facebook. People post their prized produce and flower photos. Questions are asked and seasoned dirt lubbers are more than happy to answer, based on their experiences.
 
A woman found a Praying Mantis pod on a tree she pulled inside for the winter and set outside again. She was curious, asking members what in the world it could be. Should she take it off...could the mother still be in the basement...would the pod damage the tree? Soon she had more answers than she could handle, adding to her gardening knowledge base and was … (16 comments)

The Hungry Fisherman & the Little Fish 
A hungry Fisherman, who lived on the fish he caught, had bad luck one day and netted nothing but a very small fry. He was about to put it in his basket when the little Fish said:
 
"Please spare me, Mr. Fisherman! I am so small it is not worth while to carry me home. When I am bigger, I shall make you a much better meal."
 
But the Fisherman quickly put the fish into his basket.
 
"How foolish I should be," he said, "to throw you back. However small you may be, you are better than nothing at all."
 
A small … (18 comments)

Motivation plays a role in every day life. The desire to be successful in business propels people to wake, meet the day, making a positive difference. While some may claim it is impossible to move mountains, I say, watch me.
 
It's the climb! Happy sales all!

A remark left or taken. Seriously, you must decide. 
 
 
The art of listening lends to giving undivided attention by showing sincere interest in a discussion. It is imperative to decipher subtle nuances in conversations that may be brushed over quickly but become a major point of awareness once the home search begins.
 
 
Such things as:
Room for pets Near schools Golf course views Gourmet kitchen Workshop for him Spa in master bath Room for entertaining Quiet neighborhood Upgraded amenities Low HOA monthly fees Close to medical facilities  
 
Body language can also be very telling, so be sure to observe clients when they enter a neighborhood or cross the … (6 comments)
