The Winds of Change

Services for Real Estate Pros with Towering Pines Real Estate

What a difference a day can make.  As I left home this morning I was stunned to see how one evening of winds had taken all the leaves and has temperatures dropping to make us all realize winter is on its way.  

It made me think of how quickly things change in our lives and businesses.  You simply wake up and things are not as they were.

 The real estate market has been this way.  What amazes me more than the changes is the fact that agents are not changing with the market.  When we woke up this morning we knew it was time to break out the sweaters and jackets and adjust to what was going on around us.  Yet every day as I talk with agents across town they are simply waiting for the market to come back.  If you are not changing with your surroundings you will be left out in the cold.  Today's market is a great opportunity for gaining market share for those agents who are ready to change with it.  

 Peter Drucker says it so well: "The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity."

Hi Terry. It is the SMART Realtor that makes the adjustment. Your blog post reminded me of the death of a colleague's father in my office yesterday, and how life is VERY fragile too for all of us. We take it entirely too much for granted many days. The analogy with the colder weather and coats is a good one.
