Don't thank me...

Real Estate Agent with Fill-In-The-Blanks PDF Flyer Templates www.TurnKeyFlyers.com

... thank my team! There is no such thing as a "one-man or one-woman" show. Real estate or any business requires the skills, expertise, and hard work of teams... without them you fail.

 I define a team as anyone I call upon to help me improve my business. That means my favorite go-to local donut baker who supplies me with fresh donuts for open houses, the friendly Kinko staff that gets last minute listing packages done when I'm in a rush, and it includes my family who support, encourage, and promote me through thick and thin.

The point is, your team goes beyond simply having assistants. The stagers, home inspectors, loan officers, Title reps, your graphic designer, marketers, and the hundreds of the other REALTORS in your area that bring clients to your listings. In the real estate business you can never do it alone. It's your network, contacts, and relationships that all work together to make you successful.

That being said "My team and I thank you for your business!"

It's true. The transaction does not come to the closing table without a team of people making it all work! Great reminder!!

Could NOT agree with you more. I value my "team" every day and try to let them know how much I appreciate them.

That is a great response, even those playing a small part helped to get things worked out in the end! I dont know what I would do without the help and support from my loved ones and team at the office.

It does take a team. I learned early in life that I could accomplish much, much more by harnessing the efforts of many than I could by being a lone superstar...

Very true. Sometimes the people in the background that are really doing the work don't get the credit either.

A beautiful message and a wonderful illustration. It just goes to show, even insects know that it takes a team to accomplish some things - and they don't even have to analyze it. They just do it!

Very true.  I once mentioned I did not have a Team and it was pointed out how many people I use on a regular basis to help me, even if they are not on my payroll.

Reuben: You are so right about needing assistance's to get our jobs done. It may be people we hire to do office work for us or those merchants who provide products. Thank goodness that they are there.

You are correct that your team is wide, and it is important to recognize all those that have helped throughout the year.

Good morning Reuben - great post! Isaac Newton said "If I have seen farther, it's because I've stood on the shoulders of giants." Probably not about real estate or about business, but I think it applies :)

Reuben, I totally agree! Real estate is a team effort for insuring a transaction is a successful venture.
