I want to share some of what I learned that I want to pass onto you on those same topics.
"Understand the market but don't let the negative mindset impact you." - Gary Keller
"Economics of the business don't change with the market."
Slow Market Truths by Floyd Wickman:
Listings are still the name of the game.
The seeds of failure are son during times of success.
It takes no more pain to succeed than it does to fail.
Don't Let The Issues Impact Your Attitude by Chad Goldwasser
Four tools for a Great Attitude
• Wake up thought - before your feet hit the floor, what kind of day are you going to have.
• Affirmations - what do we say to ourselves, these are a workout for your mind, should state who you are, what you do, what you want to become.
• Beating out the Negative - when a negative thought comes in say over and over again "I'm the best at what I do" until the negative thought goes away.
• Good Morning Game - say good morning to as many people as possible with enthusiasm.
•· Have your sellers present an offer to a potential buyer that is on the fence.
•· Work with your sellers at the beginning of the listing presentation on expectations in terms of market conditions, pricing and staging. One hour of difficult conversation verses every Friday communicating with your sellers in pain and agony when the house isn't showing or selling.
•· Don't take a listing from a non-motivated seller.
