allegheny county: Form GOOD Habits and Become Their Slaves. - 02/22/12 10:25 PM
Here is a post that has been a draft of mind since Feb 2013. 
 They say it takes 21 day to form a habit. If we go that extra mile in real estate for 21 days straight; prospecting (calls/door knocking), doing extra marketing on our listings (online and offline), writing blogs, branding ourselves, calling past clients, etc... then after about a month it will seem normal so then we can step it up again and go another extra mile and step up our game. So, Form GOOD Habits and Become Their Slaves. Everything we do is out of habit; sleep, shower, … (1 comments)

allegheny county: Inspiration for the day Feb 10, 2012 from Cranberry Twp - 02/10/12 02:49 PM

Confidence comes from NOT always being right... DO you know someone that always has to be right?  Is that person you?  People that always have to be right are not confident, they are actually insecure and being insecure is the opposite of being confident.But from not fearing to be wrong... That is the key to confidence.  We all want to be successful and being successful requires confidence and confidence comes from not fearing to be wrong.  There is no one that will always be right, yet there are those that never think there wrong.  Don't be that person.  Have confidence … (2 comments)

allegheny county: My House is Listed with XXXX but can YOU tell me a good list price? - 10/21/11 04:12 PM
I have had owners of houses already listed ask me what I thought their house should be listed at.  That is a touchy area to be put in.. any advice that we give a seller that has a house listed with another agent is like watering a fire with gasoline.  We are going to end up burning ourselves. 

When I do get that question.  I always ask the seller;What is the current price of your house now?Is that your price decision or your Realtors recommendation?Are you happy with the price?(if yes) That's great(if no) Sorry to hear that, what would it … (8 comments)

allegheny county: I Can Predict the Future.... Can You? - 10/02/11 01:41 PM
Talking to a friend of mine at my hockey game today I said to him "I Can Predict the Future.... Can You?"  This comes from our conversation about life and where we are today in life.  He was telling me that he was dealt a tough life and living paycheck to paycheck is the way life is for him.  He said "I don't sell mansions like you do."  He is 42 and waiting for his big break in life. 

After telling him that "I Can Predict the Future.... Can You?" he say "No I can't and neither can you."  I … (7 comments)

allegheny county: Smart Phone vs MLS Key - 09/06/11 01:27 PM
For a short time now I have been hearing about the conflict between the Smart Phone vs MLS Key.  I had the MLS Key.First the older brand.

Then about 2 years ago our MLS upgraded to the new ActiveKEY and I had that.

Now last week I went from the Active KEY to the Droid Smart phone

To me it's better than the ActiveKEY.  I dont have to charge it all the time.  I can keep it in my car till I need it.  Now it does need batteries so … (2 comments)

allegheny county: 16 and a Learners Permit in Mars - 09/04/11 06:04 AM
16 and a Learners Permit in Mars is tougher now than it was when I had my Learners Permit.
I have been driving for 23 years now.  Life in the driving world is moving at a faster pace nowadays with more distractions like, cell phones-- texting, emails, wanting to get photo, etc...

My step son is very popular with about 1000 contacts in his phone (why, I don't know) and he is very temped to check his phone while driving … (2 comments)

allegheny county: The Hardest Job or The Easiest job in the World - 08/27/11 02:52 AM
Do you thing being a real estate agent is The Hardest Job or The Easiest Job in the World?  Juli Vosmik wrote a blog about an agent NOT answering the phone and not getting back to her in a timely mannor.  It's amazing how everyone sees the same job with very different eyes.  Yea I know what everyone is thinking --but we all know a little more/less than others, We are all busy in our own ways, and on and on (blah, blah).  That is just excuses.  We are in the business to find people looking to buy and sell property … (11 comments)

allegheny county: Pre Listing and Listing Presentations - 08/21/11 12:07 PM
I have been in real estate for awhile now and never had a Pre Listing and Listing Presentation.  In the business there are 3 major skills; 1. Knowing the rules and regulations of a realtor2. Knowing how to talk to/with people (talking in general, knowing how to talk to them in solving their problems and knowing how to talk WITH them).  Most of OUR talking is done by listening.3. Knowing how to market a product (ourselves, the properties we list, the buyers we work with, etc)
I am having a GREAT year. One thing I like to do is listen to motivation/inspirational materials.  A … (2 comments)

allegheny county: Think and Grow Rich - 08/16/11 03:25 PM
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill has been credited as the second most successful book in world history.  The only book to be more successful is the Bible.
