changeBe Flexible

In today's constantly changing business environment learn to adapt and be flexible. You will find it keeps you out in front and on top of your game. Successful people anticipate change and factor "adjustments" into their business plan along with maintaining an optimistic outlook!

Utilizing imagination and self-confidence is an important aspect in tweaking how you are perceived by your competition and your clients.  You can make subtle changes and still retain your core self.  Those who resist change will find themselves out of the loop and most likely out of their profession.

Dorie, I needed to have read your post earlier in the evening before getting one of those calls form a potential client I had been trying to reconnect with.  Thanks for the reminder to be optimistic and flexible.

And thanks for the gentle reminder to embrace change. Whether we like it or not, its part of our business. May as well learn to love it at least accept it! Maybe we'll even learn to love a few of the changes!

Dorie - the one thing I always plan on is something not going the way I expected!  Flexibility is key in any business and this so applies to staging - so many variables, options, even the weather can thwart getting those perfect MLS photos! Wise words from a wise woman!

Our business and the methods we employ to capture new or sustain existing clientele is constantly changing.  If you're not flexible, you are getting left behind.

Flexibility in an every changing real estate transaction is paramount.  We need to be able to bend in multiple directions.
