"Orchestrating" Real Estate - It's Music to My Ears!

Not so many years ago I did quite a bit of singing -  I couldn't imagine a time that I wouldn't want to sing - and music was forefront for over 30 years.

Over the past six years, I've found the creative juices needed in Real Estate tend to satisfy many of the same things I that fired me up through music and performance:

"Orchestrating" Real Estate - It's Musical!!

  • Passion and Excitement - there's nothing like pre-performance jitters and then the thrill of applause
  • The first client contact clear through to successful close of escrow.  Talk about a jump of adrenaline when your phone rings and that fantastic feeling of satisfaction at the closing.
  • Conducting - Generally it was my accompanist/band and I, but on occasion I directed a choir or praise group, student drama, holiday event - great fun.
  • Contractors, inspectors, handymen, surveyors, escrow personal, buyers, sellers, agents...talk about an orchestration!
  • Referrals - Nothing like singing at someone's event to get asked to sing another - great word of mouth because folks were attracted to your singing and bookings for the next gig were often on the spot!
  • Successful communication, strong working relationships, satisfied customers build into a fantastic referral base for future business.  I love a phone call that says, "I got your name from so-and-so...."


I stopped by to visit some clients of mine today in their new home of two weeks and they asked for more business cards.  

Now that's music to my ears!!

It certainly does require we orchestrate a lot of parts.  Making sure the others involved are in tune and good at what they do is a definite plus.  I am glad you are getting so much satisfaction out of real estate.  I can humble and excite you, all on the same day.  Best of luck for your continued success!

Cara, I never knew you used to be a singer, too!!!!!  Just last week, my "old band" asked me to come back in with them for the holiday parties.  Unfortunately, I've had laryngitis for almost 2 weeks and have no idea when I'll be able to speak again, LOL.

But, I love your analogy.  Because you were taugh to listen to the band and the music, it became second nature to listen to the needs of your clients.  Then, like music, you can help them get to the end just like getting to the end of the song. 

We need to get together and do a karaoke night somewhere - if I ever get my voice back, LOL.

Cara, If your clients are looking for more of your business cards, you've obviously hit a chord, with them.

Wow - I was sitting here thinking maybe this blog was too corny to write, and here you all are chiming in with your own musical comments.  I just love it.  :)  Active Rain is such fun!

Liz - I can see you waving the Chandler Real Estate baton all the way to Tucson!

Melia - what a beautiful name!!  You're so right - real estate can be very humbling!

Thanks Lise - joy is a real blessing, isn't it!  Internal, not external...

Yvonne - thanks for joining the chorus!!  I'll be sure to visit your blog.

Juli - so you're a singer too -- wow, the things we find out!  I haven't sung much for the past four years, but before that...well, I was always singing.  I always planned on being an author in my fifties...just never knew it was going to be BLOGGING!  lol

Nice analogy, Donna!  I feel really wonderful when my business cards are "requested", not just handed out by me.  I bet you get a lot of requests yourself!!
