As a producing Broker / Owner I have the privilege of not just meeting with agents and loan officers on a daily basis but clients as well. It's amazing to me how agents, loan officers and clients all live in the past. For example, I’ll interview an agent and he’ll say "back in the day I did 30 deals a year" or a client will say " my house was worth $800,000".
Although I believe there is value in being aware of the past, I have a problem with people being stuck in it. I don't care that interest rates used to be 12%. What matters is what's happening in the market today and where the market is heading.
The sooner people learn to let go of the past the sooner they can accept their current circumstances and make decisions that will set them up to win in the future.
I'm completely passionate about people and truly want to help them. What matters is what's happening now and what you can do to seize the moment and make the most of it.
There is a shift in the market place. I can feel it. Now is the time to take the steps necessary to right the wrongs of the past, get rid of that bad debt, those bad habits, and being stuck in the past and focus on the opportunities of the future.
As long as there is movement in the market place (up or down) there is opportunity. If you happened to take the time to read this, send me an email. It’s my first time blogging and I’d be happy to read what you’ve written.
