So I'm up watching TV late last night.....11:30 or later, who really knows? I catch the last half of multi-platinum rapper, Snoop Dogg's new reality show: Father'hood. I've seen the show before and I like it. To me it's both funny and interesting to see a "big-bad" rapper at home vacuuming, playing with the kids, eating a regular dinner with the long-time wife (and high school sweetheart, mind you), etc.....
Snoop does what I can only describe as a "street" word or phrase of the day. This episode's was:
"Ball till ya fall"
Meaning, make as much as you can-----------while you can.
isn't shouldn't be that! We, as Realtors, should "Ball for the long haul" (trademark pending)....
We all know the agent's that are in for the quick buck....they kind of stink of it. I've got a local "star" that bad mouths clients and townspeople (and townspeople that become clients) like you wouldn't believe. I 'knew' some neighbors of mine were "white trash hicks" from her info. Other than mailing them marketing pieces, I hadn't thought of them until she listed their home.....I'm sure they'd be proud to know what their "friend" and Realtor thinks of them when she's not making money off them!
I cannot respect that. I'd much rather be a moderate dollar-producing Realtor that does so with class, dignity and respect than someone that 'sells my soul' for quick cash today.
