In 2011 I’m going to remain king of my mountain… Are you?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Respect Realty LLC 200311024

You could stay on the valley floor, but the smart ones know being the king of your own mountain is where you really want to be. You can see your competitors and where your business is coming from. Are you the king of your mountain or looking around on the valley floor nervously?

I'm the king of my mountain (Mountain Goat)

2011 is going to be an amazing year for me... In fact, my best year yet!  Hope the same holds true for you, Todd.

Todd, Greetings from the coastal range!

Thank you for reminding me that to see the top of the mountain, I must look up.  Step forward. Bring water. Celebrate the view......Thanks for the post. You rock. :)

Hi Todd, great motivation for the year ahead - the view from the top is so much better than from gulch.

I am climbing on up. I want to get a better view from the top and high goals are great motivators.

Great timing, Todd.  I just updated my 2011 plan IN WRITING!!!  I don't need to be king of "the hill", just queen of MY hill.  But definitely, at the top!!!

Todd, Great analogy, we have to step up our game rather than waiting for the market to get better on it's own.

What's a competitor?

Who claims to offer William J Archambault Jr?

Thanks to the MLS and the Internet consumers can buy almost any property from almost anyone with a license. Your only product is your self! You are the King of your Mountain, your only concern is where you're clients, your subjects are coming from.

I have only three concerns about so called competitors:

1. I don't want to repeat their mistakes.

1. I'll improve upon and personalize better ideas.

3. I won't tolerate any one harming my clients.

I'll find my own way up that mountain! I'll share what I've learned liked those that shared with me! Sharing never hurts because I have an exclusive product, me!


PS:  Love the sheep.

The only way to get to the top is to climb to the top.  And those that remain in the valley?  What's the phrase....All ______ rolls downhill?

This is so true.  I still have long ways to climb to the top but I'm not giving up.

Jon, I would like to think I'm the king of content, but there are a few out there with more posts than me. I could be number one at that as well, but I have chosen not to post all my stats posts here in the rain, I host them on
