What's that saying: "what goes up must come down"...Well the opposite is also true...I don't know about the rest of the country, but speaking for myself I have remained optimistic about the Real Estate industry. In our business or any sales industry fueled by commission, we all must not only consistently keep our data bases updated and well oiled, but also our attitudes. Whether it means watching a light movie, reciting positive mantras, or smiling; it's imperative that we remain united and keep plowing forward towards a common goal! I have been watching the mulitple listing service in Port St. Lucie and Jupiter, Florida and inventory is moving! The key is clear and concise communication with sellers and buyers. Buyers are ready to hear IT'S A BUYER'S market...and sellers have to hear the same thing. New & more innovative marketing strategies are called for as well as corrective pricing and most if all honesty! Before you throw in the towel...get creative, approach the market from a different prospective...a positive attitude is contagious. I've been in the business for almost 15 years and before the fat days of 2001 to 2005 I was a negotiator! That's what fuels my passion for the business. I hope it fuels yours!
