Last month was probably my slowest month since I started working in this idustry. I talked to the owners and management and apologized that I didn't close at my quota. They were understanding and said, "It's alright Mikey, it's slow out there for all of us". I just can't believe where I am now from last year and the year before. I know I'll be alright, but what about my brokers, agents, title reps, termite inspectors, NHD people, and everyone else I work with to make the deal happen. What do "WE" all do? We are all working twice as hard, and have a second job. It's really sad! I am usually the hopeful one but I have lost it. I am usually that upbeat person you like to slap now and again for smiling at 8am. Lately its getting harder and harder to smile, I try to be upbeat, and try to be that one everyone goes to for a shot in the arm of hope. I've been called alot of things, mostly positive. =) But now I don't get "those" calls, I don't get e-mails saying, "THIS HAS GOT TO CLOSE NOW". I miss it. I miss being so damn busy that I cant see str8. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment, after all I work in escrow.
I don't want to depress you, reader. I want to empower you. I want to grab you by your shoulders and shake you saying," Come on bring it". But I know how it is out there. Everyone's fearful that they might lose big if they buy now. We need to inform these people, the time for being greedy is over, its time to go forth and thrive!!
Mr or Mrs reader, listen to this silly 28 year old escrow officer. Real estate is still good! It is the most sound investment anyone can make. Saying that, we must inject to everyone we meet our positive feelings about our market. Its a buyers market, if they have money. If they don't there are agencies out there that can help, I'm sure of this! So today 03/03/2008, I challenge you to hand out 20 business cards to new people. Be loud and say, "Hello, I work in the realestate industry, I have offers that will make anyone buy a home!"
NOW GET OUT THERE AND FIGHT!
WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO BOOM THIS INDUSTRY!
WE JUST NEED TO LOOK AT IT A DIFFERENT WAY!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
