la jolla: Until We Me Again, And I Hope We Do... - 03/17/17 09:01 PM
May the roads rise up to meet you,
May the winds be at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face 
and the rains fall softly upon your fields.
And until we meat again my friends
(and I hope we do)
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

la jolla: Divorced, Stressed, Broke, Poor Health, but... #1 in Sales! - 03/11/17 02:08 PM
Don't mind me, I'm just thinking out loud...
 
Would it surprise you if I shared I heard a *true story about a very “successful agent” who Grossed $900,000 in 2016, per his 1099, but her Net was only $135,000 and from that $135K, she still needed to pay the taxes on the $900K?
 
 
What if I shared, I know of an *agent that Grossed $300,000 in his 3rd year in the industry, (not bad!) but had no money in the bank, no money to pay the IRS and a wife that was barely hanging on due to his absence (whether he was physically home … (77 comments)

la jolla: A Winning Equation: Run - Rest + Recharge x Recover = Success! - 03/10/17 12:58 PM

I cringe when sales people e.g. real estate agents brag on how little sleep they get, how available they are by phone to their clients and how they'll leave the dinner table or a family vacation to assist a client. They think theirs extra trophy's, extra pay, extra credit for this behavior...NOT! They are heading for the big crash, the burnout that kills the joy, the enthusiasm and the effectiveness of that agent's skills. The big crash can show up in their health, their marriage, their relationship with their kids, their production, etc.
Lack of sleep, lack of rest, lack of down time, makes us … (8 comments)

la jolla: Can You Show Me Other Broker's Listings in San Diego, CA? - 03/10/17 03:51 AM
"Can You Show Me Other Broker's Listings?" is a common question I get. I'm always surprised by two things...
That I always assume my buyers (and sellers for that matter) know this. That they do not realize this. Assumptions are dangerous in sales, especially real estate.
 
 
Mr & Mrs. Buyer, I will show you any property on the market, meeting your criteria and budget, for sale through the MLS, websites, off market for sale, new construction, for sale by owner (cooperating) and even ones that are not for sale but I convince to consider selling for you!

The Sweet Nothing of Sundays-3
Shhhh, I’m doing Sunday, My Silent Sunday.
No Phone, No Text, No Emails, No Meetings...Silence.
 
A view from "The Bench"
Today is a day I value being benched.
Sundays are for quiet reflection, relaxing and recharging in my world.
They are a day with the family and friends,
investing in the relationships dearest to me.
Pursuing my personal goals, enjoying my hobbies or the sweet joy of doing nothing but relaxing in the sun, with a good book on a bench with a view.
 
 
The value of a precious day off:
Time away from clients; time with family & friends.

My title says La Jolla, CA but in fact all of San Diego County feels that way; the supporters do.
I drive by this memorial almost daily, it peeks at me from it's perch, high above Highway 5 ...
 
In La Jolla, CA there stands a cross, a memorial to our military atop Mount Soledad with views like none other in San Diego County. You can see Downtown and beyond to Mexico to the South, Carlsbad to The North, all of the big blue Pacific and La Jolla to the West and we can pratically see Arizona to the East!

Falling down is not failing, staying down is.
 
I recently heard an awesome interview between
Brian Buffini and J-Force (Justin Forsett, now of The Denver Broncos) on Brian's Buffini & Company Podcast...
and the take aways and "ah-ha's" were many!
Justin was cut from 6 teams before he got The Broncos. He had scholarships retracted and came up from humble beginnings. Ovvercoming adversity; J-Force knows how and shares some great insights about it here.

In order to be a real estate brand, you have to understand what a brand is, what it means to the public and especially your clientele.
 
When I think of the brands I trust, my go to choices - so to speak, I've learned a lot about creating my own brand through reflection upon why I palce so much value & trust in those I choose to align myself and my business with. Three of non-Real Estate brands I trust and admire are:

la jolla: Content or Connection? - 02/27/17 05:43 PM
Are you so focused on the content, you forget to connect?
Don't get so focused on the content or the presentation of it,
that you lose the opportunity to connect with your clients (your audience).
 
 
You are there to make a connection more so than deliver the information. Don't get me wrong, you have to know your market, know your numbers and know how to deliver the goods. But, chances are, the client already has a sense about you that you do knows this data, that's why they are interviewing you! They are equally if not more interested in; does this guy or gal … (23 comments)

la jolla: Are You Using Flashlight or Laser Beam? - 02/27/17 04:41 PM
There are riches in the niches!
Ever heard that?
Many agents make the mistake of going after "everybody".
But, the successful agents go after the riches in their niches. 
 
A flashlight can light the way, a laser beam can cut steel or perform surgery. 
The difference is the concentration of the beam of light.
Two beams of light, two very different results.
Successful agents have a specific geographic area the serve, a certain demographic they target. The brilliance of this is that then then can go to work on being the best real estate agent for that group in that area. They also do not waste their money on … (7 comments)
