Change can be really good for you!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Consultant

I was considering a move-across country. I had a snow day with my daughter and a long talk with my husband-then I got an offer at home (here in Texas) actually got 2 of them but, one wasn't real (couldn't be trusted). We decided to take the real one and now I am blown away each day by the amazing opportunity.  I am blessed to be in the middle of a group of producing, creative, fun agents. They aren't in the office very often they seem to drop in and drop off contracts and then head out again to gather a couple more before we see them again. Thursdays have become a gathering time though.

I am teaching again and happy to be doing so. Thursday mornings we are offering classes on real estate related topics with a technical spin. (For those who know me you knew it had to be so!)Looking for sponsors for lunch too.

So far we have covered Buyers:(where to find them, find one for your listings, and how to get their phone numbers) and Listings: (Where to find FSBO's, doing CMA's, 20 reasons why a property doesn't sell for expired listings, Absorption rates, etc.) Next week we will be discussing Networking, How to work a room and how many ways you can speak English effectively, (this is a leadin class to how to write an ad that MAKES the phone ring!). The only technical side to that one is the powerpoint presentation so far.

I am excited to be able to issue invitations to Realtor friends to come visit and join the classes. So if you like to take classes and maybe have enjoyed classtime with me in the past-send me a comment or an e-mail. I'm on Facebook and Twitter and Linkedin too.  No Charge for the classes in person and you might get some lunch too! See ya soon-Doris

Doris,

So  what about moving across the country? Still thinking? I guess we all sometimes tend to think of leaving and start anew, especially when things are tough. Happened to me before

Olga, That photo of you is so hard to look at! I was going for the beaches too! We had even looked at Daytona for awhile! I was full go-to make the FL move but, then the family got to me and convinced me to stay here a bit longer. We have family on the other end too and that was my biggest draw plus the warmer weather but, we can fly to visit and the opportunities are so much better here from a sales standpoint. Texas has the top 5 markets in the country for real estate. So I am staying and building a business. It is exciting and fulfilling at the same time.  So building some money making business will let me buy some property for later. Whenever later turns out to be! It's makes good business sense. Good family sense right now. Even my mother is happy that we are staying here and she is in Colorado! She just likes the idea of us being a little closer. Ok I have to teach tommorrow and I'm still awake! Thanks for the comments.

Clarke: It is a RE/MAX office! so you know the ropes! Fear isn't allowed. We just push on - don't we! Thanks for the comments!
