What "Mr. Publix" can teach you about the real estate biz

Real Estate Agent with Florida for Boomers
 Saturday, September 29, 2007 was the 100th anniversary of the birth of George W. Jenkins, the founder of Publix Supermarkets. 

Publix came out with a newspaper ad celebrating this milestone event, and reinforcing the philosophies (Publix's mission statement ) that Mr. Jenkins instilled in his business and in his employees.

I think that several of these could be applied to your real estate business, and I wanted to share those missions with you here:

  • Passionately focused on Customer Value,
  • Intolerant of Waste,
  • Dedicated to the Dignity, Value and Employment Security of our Associates,
  • Devoted to the highest standards of stewardship for our Stockholders, and
  • Involved as Responsible Citizens in our Communities.

Rather than me telling you how to apply these concepts to your business, I'd love to hear what these "statements" mean to fellow rainers, and how you think they could be applied to the real estate business.
