I wrote awhile back about how we need to go "Back To The Basics" with our Real Estate Presentations and general focus on our clients. I think we tend to overlook the small things that really make a difference when our business goes crazy. In some sort of way, we lose touch with the relationships we strive so hard to build. We tend to focus on the here and now, and not the who or why of what made us arrive at our destintation we are currently at.
I had a great opportunity to re-evlauate my real estate practices most recently. Perhaps it was the five year mark in real estate career, or wondering "HOW" was I going to move up to the next level. I was hit pretty hard when another real estate company became very attractive in it's values and systems. I questioned with great intensity and heart-ache as to why my real estate company was not giving me what I was seeking. This other company shared ideas, and helped each other with the "Basic Tools" to be a successful realtor. I as many have been very successful, but I was missing something. SHARING IDEAS. If our seasoned agents shared some ideas that help make them successful, wouldn't our individual companies thrive? Wouldn't we go home feeling better about ourselves?
If we took the time to share a little with our offices, and stop thinking about others stealing our ideas, our world of real estate would be so much stronger. Wouldn't we all be more successful and better Realtors?
