1. Professionalism is what you expect--Do you meet your expectations? by Marchell Mascheck. Windermere Real Estate. Richland,WA.

Marchell talks about a client of hers who she is working with and doing exactly what he says he will do. If he says he will call,he will call. She is blown away. How many of you want clients like Marchell's?-ME TOO!

But she talks about someone in a particular profession who doesn't do what they say they will do. So do you know who she is talking about? Read this post to find out who she is talking about and why this level of professionalism is not acceptable?

2. Ways to Filter out Bad Prospects by Chris Hallmark. The People's Home Mortgage. Keyport,ND.

Bad Prospects-I'm pretty sure you have one or two of them. Maybe more. Chris talks about five ways to pick and choose the clients you want to work with. But what are the five ways? Read Chris blog to find out.

3. What should you do to achieve your goals? by Marian Goetzinger. Crystal Coast Real Estate. Pine Knoll Shores,NC.

I've heard and read that if you want to achieve a goal,its good to write it down on a piece of paper. Read Marian Goetzinger and she breaks it down on what you should do to achieve your goals.

4. Are We Becoming Too Lazy? by Diane Rice.  Rice Property Mgmt & Realty. South Holland,IL.

So are we becoming too lazy? I can definitely answer that one. But I will let you answer that question. But Diane gives a good reason why we might have become too lazy. Read what she wrote in her blog.

5. How to get listings today, not tomorrow, not later, but today! by George Paukert.  Road to Wealth Inc. Palm Beach,FL.

Listings we know will bring us more business if you advertise them. But in this blog,George talks about who he is targeting for listings and why it takes him so many days to target this niche. Read what George wrote in this blog. A must read for real estate agents who want to get more listings.

 

Well that's it for me. These blogs to me are worthy of a Gold Star. You are all shinning stars in my book. Thanks for writing such good blogs. And I hope everyone else who reads your blogs will enjoy them as much as I did. Tune in next week for another edition of "Five non active rain blogs that you probably missed"

Lanre--I missed every one of these posts.  Thanks for bringing them to my attention.  I will visit each writer and leave a comment.  I still think you need to start your own group.  Did you you know that the group moderator can pass out gold stars?  (Just within that group)
