real estate: Whiskey's Wisdom: Let It Go - 06/29/22 06:30 PM
Welcome to my new blog series:
Whiskey's Wisdom!
It's really just "Get After It" renamed,
which was just "Take Action" renamed.
So, really just an excuse to exploit my cute puppy😂!!!
 
 
"Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble."
French Proverb
 
 
Your action for today
is to remember someone
who has been kind to you.
 
 
I did, and I sent her flowers.
Would it shock you that it was 
the agent on the other side of
the escrow I just closed?!
She was awesome!

Most Lenders I've Encountered Suck At This
...and Not Just Lenders,
Many Entrepreneurs That Network Do Too!
 
 
It's no secret that I have a Preferred Vendor List, and endorsement of my favorite professionals in real estate, the trades, business and entrepreneurs. It's known to them and anyone in my orbit, that I'm loyal to them and advocate for them any chance I get.
I want my peeps to be successful, to stay in business and to remain a resource to my clients and I (and personally I'm their friends in many cases, so I'd want this for them any way).
I get solicited the … (15 comments)

real estate: Stolen From The Journal of TJ Nelson: A May Challenge - 05/01/22 06:38 AM
 
1. What was your first job and what did you learn from it?
The first paid job I ever had was working with my Grandfather on all his rental properties. My step-Dad had died in September 1979 and I was in 6th grade. My Pa Pa decided I needed to stay busy, to keep learning and growing. So, I learned to function before 7:00AM, I learned you had to be able to put your name to the work you did that day, or it was a do over and I learned to repair & paint houses and fences and I learned how … (12 comments)

This quotes was first given to by are missed but remembered always - Lou Ludwig

But why you are busy.
The bee is praised.
The mosquito is swatted.”

"There are two types of people,

and those who keep them."
~ John Adams
 
The chicken is involved, but the pig is COMMITTED!
 
Your action for today
is to think of one commitment you have made
but so far have not yet kept,
and do what you can to keep it.
For me, this is returning to specific workouts.

real estate: Love Your Work, Love Your Home - 02/17/22 03:26 PM
I love what I do so you can love where you live.
 
Here's why:
 
I'm not here to help you find just any home - I want to help you find a home that you love. And because I enjoy serving people and I love being an entrepreneur, I invest in getting my clients needs met first.
 
 
"I don't need your money, I need your loyalty." Is what I often say to my clients.
 
Now here's what that means:
It means  I want to close escrow with an advocate,
not just a commission check. The check pays the bills,
but the advocates promote and refer my business.

Monday Musings: Simple Pleasures
I just finished writing 3 offers for three different buyers and a listing agreement for my next seller. I took a break, as I do often to stretch and get some air on my back patio. Here's my latest friend on the patio, he's a Common Side-blotched Lizard which are abundant in San Diego's desert climate.
He's been living in our garden, along with about a hundred others, but he favors this chair in shade and he hide under the pillow once the sun starts hitting the patio in the late afternoon. This has been going on for about … (4 comments)

"If you really want to do something,
you'll find a way;

and either do it
or stop saying you want to do it.
(This removes self-imposed pressure;
you delete unnecessary resolutions
to focus on a truly beneficial New Year's Goals).

real estate: Take Action: Chuckling At The Mirror - 10/26/21 05:06 AM
"Those who can't laugh at themselves
leave the job to others."
~ Unknown Author
 
 
Your action for today
is to count how many times
you laugh at yourself.
 
My Coldwell Banker sales manager,
many years ago
heard me arguing with another agent
on the phone and stopped by
my office doorway; when I hung up he  said,
"Tommy, don't take yourself so seriously,
this business will eat you alive if you
don't lighten up. Be professional,
but have some fun with this business...
you'll live longer and avoid burnout."
He was right.
And because he was both
retired Navy and my boss;
him telling me to "have some fun"
landed with me!

Welcome! This post was inspired by two of our AR members (and their posts) in Active Rain; Kathy Streib recently inspired Wayne Martin to revisit some of his old posts and he came across one of his going back to 2011 where he advises his readers to:

is to count how many times
you judge people today,
including yourself.
Then think of something loving
to replace that judgement thought.

"The best time to plant a tree
was twenty years ago;
the second best time is today."
Chinese Proverb
 
 
Your action for today
is to look for something
that you wished you would
have done in the past.
If there is, see if you can
do something about it today!

real estate: Take Action: Steal It - 07/22/21 07:20 AM
"Progress always involves risks.
You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first."
Author, Frederick B. Wilcox
 
 
Your action for today
is to identify an area
where you would like
to see some progress
and see what risks
you're willing to take
to have it happen.
 
There has been risk and 
departure from the comfort zone
of my life, throughout my life.
I go through periods of
comfort zone and routine,
then change is inevitable.
 
The key is to know when it's
time to get uncomfortable,
to invite change into your life or
to address change put upon your life.
Resistance never seems like the right choice.

real estate: The Final 10 Days of Escrow: How To Create a Smooth CA Closing - 07/19/21 11:05 AM
Here are 12 helpful reminders -
for a smooth close of escrow.
 
 
Do not buy anything big on credit, no furniture, no leasing or purchasing cars, no big purchases that can derail your debt to income ratio and affect your credit score. Basically this is true from the time you start house hunting until the day you close escrow. Final walkthrough of the property - verify the agreed to repairs were completed before scheduling this and then go confirm the repairs and condition of the house - best done when vacant if possible. Sign and submit the Verification of Property Condition form … (7 comments)
