2008 People

Real Estate Agent with Florida Future Realty, Inc. BK3071625

How do people fit into your 2008 plans?

Yes, we all talk about income goals, weight loss goals, etc but did you write out your relationship goals?

Yes, for both business & personal?Family

As I look back onto 2007 I think about people. People I've met, people I might not have kept in contact with as closely as I'd have liked & people I've assisted or that have assisted me or my family in some way.

People are what life is all about. Relationships are truly what form us.

Possessions do not make us. Nor does what we know. What makes us is how we use what we have to build relationships. What we give & what we take from others for good.

Be it personal or professional, I value them all. Even those that last a short while all teach us something.

This past year I reconnected with a few friends I had lost touch with. I'm glad we were able to reconnect & I look forward to maintaining these relationships.

While real estate was kind of slow this year, I was still able to assist many customers with their buying & selling needs. Many of these folks will be my friends for numerous years to come. However we met it was great that we did & I look forward to the continued relationship.

At times it is easy to feel overwhelmed with keeping in touch with everyone but a 5-10 minute conversation to say hello & keep in touch with someone is all it takes.

In my 2008 business & personal plan I have set time aside to build upon these relationships.

I hope you have added this important healthy step to your plans as well.

One more thing, real estate is also about people, not land, houses or buildings.

Yours in Success (in 2008 & beyond),

So true Susan. It's all about the relationships. Always has been and always will be. To do it any other way will be a losing uphill battle. Thanks for the reminder.

With your attitude, your business is destined to grow!  This is a people business, and people like doing business with folks they know and feel comfortable with.  I'd strongly encourage you or anyone else reading your post to make personal relationship a priority in 2008 and beyond!

Happy New Year from Toledo, Ohio!

Oh so true!  I know your area and do miss Florida.  I was there from 1980 to 1985; great times!  Enjoy your new year and I'm sure it is going to work for you with your thoughts on relationship building from the beginning!

Susan...People are OUR Business!  Sometimes, with all that's going on, we may forget the importance of this.  Nothing, no amount of business is worth loosing a friend.  Thanks for this post.
