michelle shelton: When your son dies... - 12/14/12 12:55 AM
Some of you know my 22 year old son was killed in a car accident the first of September. It has been a difficult time for our family. Thank you for your patience with me while I get my sea legs with this. Since you are all friends, I will share more about Phillip and his life with you as time goes on...I actually set up a blog for him and have been blogging some of my challenges. www.phillipshelton.com
I really miss him and you might wonder what this has to do with real estate. Well, nothing really except sometimes as … (6 comments)

michelle shelton: The Dream Relationship Workshop - 06/17/10 11:29 AM
As a REALTOR I find it is constantly a balancing act. When I first went into real estate it was more "normal". I know you REALTORS out there know what I mean. When the market started to get a little crazy, so did I! I was like a hunter on the prowl. I was getting up at the crack of dawn and driving neighborhoods looking for a post being installed so I could get one of the scarce homes being listed before it went on the powerful MLS. I was working from five or six in the morning to 10 or … (0 comments)

michelle shelton: What is your Winning Formula? - 01/29/10 06:27 PM
People have winning formulas to get what they want from those around them. I find it interesting when I “see” these formula’s play out.
The most interesting thing is that most of the time, the people themselves are not aware they have a winning formula. Now that I think about it, the people they use the formula on are typically not aware of it either. The receiver typically has many other relationships in their lives that use similar versions of the same formula. The Universe seems to line it all up for them. It is peculiar for sure. Do you even … (0 comments)

Is texting 90990 a SCAM? By Michelle Shelton
In the aftermath of the horrible earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday evening, supports have jumped into action. Everyone wants to help when there is a tragedy. This is noble of course. Just make sure that you check out the sources that as for money. The Internet and texting has made it so much easier and faster to rally support after such an event.
I received a text on my facebook wall saying to text ‘Haiti’ to 90990 and at first I was ready to copy and paste it and then I stopped. … (1 comments)

michelle shelton: Humans have a lot to Learn from Dogs! - 01/29/10 05:21 PM
Humans have a lot to Learn from Dogs!
I think as humans we have so much to learn from animals. My dog, Sophie, had five pups on December 18, 2009. They are cute of course. They are puppies after all.
If only I would trust myself that I have the answers like Sophie does. I was so concerned when she was about to deliver that she wouldn’t know what to do. From a human perspective, it seems disgusting…eating the placenta, chewing through the umbilical cord. I wanted to save her from having to do this stuff. She would have none of … (6 comments)

michelle shelton: The Truth About Real Estate in Arizona and Potential Brain Activity! - 09/27/09 02:58 AM
By Michelle Shelton, Professional REALTOR® & CEO of AZ Mastermind Group, LLC We have all heard that we only use 10% of our brains. You can read various writings online by Benjamin Radford where he refers to Dr. Barry Beyerstein's research disputing this. Okay, so, maybe it would be more accurate to say that some REALTORS® only engage 10% of their brain when they are supposed to be educating their clients. Either way...you are obviously using much more of your brain than either of these two. How do we know that? Because you are here of course! It is proven that … (2 comments)

michelle shelton: Gilbert Horse Property - 07/29/09 11:05 AM
If you are looking for affordable Gilbert Horse Property, it doesn't get any better than this! I just sold a 2 acre 2200 sq ft home that was remodeled, had a diving pool and an insane shop. I think the shop itself had to be over 3, 000 sf. All of this for $310,000. 
Folks there are deals out there! There is another Gilbert, Arizona Horse Property on the same street listed for $165,000. It needs some work, however, it is on an irrigated arce in the heart of Gilbert. We haven't seen prices like these since at least 2002! Don't … (0 comments)

michelle shelton: Agents flocking to Solutions Real Estate - 07/28/09 10:34 AM
Okay so I have only had a couple of agents follow me over to Solutions Real Estate. Not exactly a flock of agents, still, I got another call yesterday from an agent looking for "solutions". I don't think it is over.
This agent wanted to know what I liked and what I didn't like about Solutions Real Estate. For the most part, I like everything. There is a nice office, a work area for agents, conference rooms. The office is clean, the broker is smart and the owner is a Mustang.
Yes. I said Mustang. You know, a wild, free-spirited, athletic, … (0 comments)

michelle shelton: Shelton Leaves Keller Williams - 07/21/09 01:45 PM
Well, it is true. I have left Keller Williams. I LOVE Keller Williams, it is a great company....the thing is, real estate is about relationships. Our Keller Williams office folded and the owner absorbed the agents into the Tempe office. I didn't want to be in the Tempe office. It is a nice office, it just wasn't where I had made relationships. It was far from my home.
Resisting Dave Dion is like resisting the Borg. Eventually, he will get you. Resistence is futile. I already knew Dave is a great agent as I had worked with him in the Gilbert … (0 comments)

look like I just had a stroke....at this point...it is what it is~

michelle shelton: Promote your business using Youtube - 05/21/09 08:37 AM
I have been playing around on youtube for some time. At Christmas I got a new IMac and I LOVE it! The webcam is so easy to use. I can create all sorts of things and it is so easy to load a video onto youtube just by sitting in front of my computer and looking at the green light.
So, I want to share some helpful real estate information that I have posted before only this time you get to watch me fumble around with my words while I learn something new....mostly getting used to seeing myself on video....fun, huh?

michelle shelton: You think you're a leader? How well do you trust yourself? By Michelle Shelton - 05/07/09 04:31 AM
The last 18 months of my life I have totally focused on honing my leadership skills. Wow. What a ride! The biggest thing I have learned is that I really have a lot to learn. 
This is exciting and an opportunity to keep moving. Keep going. Meet new and exciting people and keep growing. 
I have found that I am either in a state of decline or a state of growth. As much as I would like to say I am in a state of stability, I am painfully aware that stability doesn't exist. Another way of looking at it is this:
Unsuccessful … (4 comments)

michelle shelton: Personal Growth to the Max - 12/28/08 11:19 AM
I actually posted this as a comment to the last blog post and realized it was pretty powerful and I should share it...so read my last blog post first!
I know Mary mentioned fear of heights and falling. The program I went through had a facilitator at the bottom of the pole and he said there were 3 fears at the pole...heights, falling and jumping (you can see the trapeze in the background...once you get to the top you turn and jump for it), anyway, he asked which fear I felt was mine. I told him heights...he said it stemed from … (5 comments)

michelle shelton: This is one of the best tools I have found for marketing! - 11/17/08 11:43 AM
My fellow REALTORS always come to me and say how do you generate so much business? Well...the honest answer is....I WORK. I work a lot. I have learned in the last year to work less...however, I spend a lot of time generating the business and then if I don't want to work, I refer. The work I focus on is constant marketing. I use the web mostly. I don't do cold calling, telemarketing and rarely do I knock on a door.
So, what do I do? I send a lot of cards...even that is easy! For the last year I have … (58 comments)

michelle shelton: If you are saying this one little phrase when you speak to clients, you could potentially scare them away! - 02/28/08 05:32 AM

If You are Saying this One Little Phrase When You Speak to Clients, You Could Potentially Scare Them Away!- By Michelle Shelton, Arizona REALTOR
How many times when you are talking to a company representative about your specific service needs, do you hear the constant response, "No problem"? A better question would be, how often do you hear yourself saying "No Problem" to your clients? In the last few years this phrase seems to have invaded our culture in a big way.
No problem may sound like a reasonable response in the service industry. However, I am here to tell you it is … (11 comments)

michelle shelton: Why should you commit to one Real Estate Agent? - 02/28/08 05:27 AM
Why should you commit to one Real Estate Agent? By Michelle Shelton, REALTOR, CNE, MARKETING EXPERT, Owner AZ Mastermind Group
Buyer Broker Agreement?  What's that? Most agents don't ask their potential buyers to sign anything.  It is too...well...you know...uncomfortable. Hmmmmmmm.
A professional is viewed as a professional for a reason. They value their own time and energy as well as their clients. Of all the paperwork required, I often wonder why the Buyer Broker Agreement isn't one of them. 
Personally, I take anywhere from 20 to 50 phone calls per day from my listing signs.  Most of these individuals do not have … (3 comments)

michelle shelton: The line in the sand. Are you a professional or wimp? - 02/28/08 05:23 AM
The line in the sand. Are you a professional or wimp?By Michelle Shelton, REALTOR, CNE, Marketing SpecialistIn Arizona, today's market can be tough for agents. Dealing with unrealistic sellers is not always easy. The top agents have figured this out.
You have to be tough in your listing presentation about pricing their home so it will sell. With short-sales, foreclosures and bank owned property, the prices are being driven down fast, really fast.
Every day your seller doesn't have a showing, they are losing money and so are you.
The tendency is to go ahead, meet the seller half way, and at … (2 comments)

Sell your home in Arizona - Arizona Real EstateBy Michelle Shelton, Realtor, AZ Mastermind Group
It's all about a mind shift. The sellers have been in a position of power for the last several years. They could, name their price and get it. Now the tides have changed.
With more and more listings on the market every day. The sellers now find themselves in a position of weakness in more ways than one. In order to sell their home is is our job to educate, guide, and encourage them that selecting the right agent is NOT about price. The buyers determine the … (2 comments)
