How Soon They Forget You in Real Estate
It is like so many businesses that are 'sales' businesses when you are present, work smartly and on your game, the business flows. So it is so true in real estate when you step out of the arena, your name wafts along and dissipates in the air. How soon they forget you in real estate it is said!
I am sure as more of us realize the realities of age and time passing (no matter how much we love our business), the personal side of free time, adventure & traveling takes hold. Or an unforeseen surgery comes upon us leaving us in the lurch for support. Unless you are a very well rounded team in real estate, once you step out for a couple of months or more your name totally disappears from the minds of clients, buyers and sellers. It is something to consider before it happens to you.
As part of all of your business plans for 2015 I ask that you take the time to have a serious back up plan on what you would do if the unexpected happened to you. This is a serious topic and no one knows what will come at them.
Who are the teammates that will rise to support you, how will you work out compensation and what do you tell clients that contact you? Have the written discussion with yourself now.
Having seen what Barbara Todaro has gone through as well as a couple of others made me more vigilant about doing that last year. There is no time like the present when all is going exceeding well for you to do it. Those are my thoughts today on the first year of a fabulous new year!
Have a great New Year and I want all of you remembered in real estate.
