Are You Committed or Involved

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty LLC

So, Riddle me this?  Karen has nailed this dead on! Are my sellers committed?  Are they Chickens or Pigs, and I don't me literally, I mean figuratively.  How committed are they?  That is the million dollar question in this market.  What are your sellers?

Original content by Karen Bernetti

pigAre you 'committed' or 'involved'?  

Whether you're selling a house, at work or in a relationship your level of commitment to whatever it is you're doing will greatly impact your results. eggs & bacon

Today I learned a clever way to tell the difference between being involved and being committed.  All you have to do is think about bacon and eggs.....

In this situation the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed! 

 I hope you found that as helpful as I did : )

Being committed to whatever you set your hand to do is paramount. Anything less will only leave you and those you're involved with disappointed. Let's all be CHICKENS!!!
