Chris, that's a really great question at this particular time, and I'm glad you asked it! Self doubt is a debilitating and paralyzing mindset in a market and industry where only positive action is rewarded.

I'm wondering though, if you're talking about moving to the next level through one's ability to embrace and utilize technology, or whether you're talking about just having the skills and knowledge to effectively  serve buyers and sellers. (or both!) I never, EVER doubt my ability to be the most knowledgeable and most proactive agent with a work ethic that is unparalleled. I never doubt my ability to listen to and HEAR my clients and their needs and wishes, and never doubt my negotiation or detail-handling skills. I'm among the best in knowledgeable, skilled service, if I may say so without sounding arrogant.

But while I'm pretty tech savvy, and incredibly responsive, time-wise, I wonder if me amping up my e-presence, past a great website, is worth the effort. I don't tweet. Should I? Do people really care what I'm having for dinner? I'm in a small market in NC that is as much a retirement/second home market as it is primary, but the former has fallen away in this market, but is finally returning as land prices have gone waaay down (we're in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina).

Tell me what you see as "what it takes" to be the best.
