Quiet time for me right now....

By
Real Estate Agent with Gold Key Real Estate

 

Well the real estate market is a funny animal.   Sometimes you are so busy you don't know where to turn.  You are running around and falling in to bed late.  Then it gets quiet for a bit... I am in one of my quiet bits... Perhaps the two are related... When you are running around you do not have as much time to prospect.  With prospecting brings clients... When  it calms down you prospect again.  Ideally you never stop prospecting so the pipeline never slows... The quiet time is a bit convienent (except for the lack of sales) since my dad is recovering from a stroke.  It isn't that I haven't been busy.... I had the busy start of the year... The buyers with cash in the suitcase.  I also had a pending fall on inspection... I have a buyer who wants what I cannot find... So it is quiet.... I hope to get busy but we will see... So now it is a quiet time for me right now.... Give me patience.... Maybe I should work on my 2011 taxes and prospect.

So if you want to buy a home in the Treasure Valley Call Debbie Holmes.  She is a great agent with some time on her hands....

Use this for "On time" when you work on your busines...instead of "in your business."  Awesome experience....and your business will grow.

Debbie, it's a quiet time for me too. I was very busy at the end of 2011. I plan to prospect and have some irons in the fire. Best of luck to you in 2012!

This has been written about for years. The ebbs and flos, we're always supposed to be prospecting but it's hard when you have so much going on.

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

Prospecting is a daily habit and doesn't need to line up with a busy or a slow time.  I am sorry to hear about your Dad, I hope he is doing better today.  Most of the successful people I know put this prospecting into a morning time slot.  I tend to do it mid morning or later in the day.  Prospecting is the one control you have over your success.  Good luck today.

Oh so true...I was told by an experienced agent when I first got in the business, enjoy it when it is Bzy since it won't always be Bzy...and enjoy it when it is quiet as it will soon be Bzy and you will wish for quiet!! Hope your dad is sill doing well!!
