Everything I Learned About Real Estate I Learned in Kindergarten


Advice For Newbies

Really.  Hmm.  Maybe so.  Let’s look back at those basics:




As in information sharing.  Well, there are some who say share nothing - yeah, some of us who have been in business for a while have heard this "advice" but I believe sharing is good.  Very good.  Please share.  Ask others.  Over time, you'll find you will learn even more when you share. Seek out those who share.


Playing fair.


There will be those who don’t.   I say karma.  It’s a bitch.  And that’s a good thing. You’ll find out.   Sooner.  Or later.   Perhaps more than once.  Don’t be a statistic of that category. And watch that bitch. This is a winning strategy.


Don’t hit people.  


Yeah, that can be a bitch too.  But it’s best to be a good person.  For you. For the world.  Really.


Put things back where you found them.   


Keys in lockboxes come in mind.  Yeah, and those rogue clients too. Keeping things in order will help you win in this business. People like that. So will you.


Clean up your own mess.


You screw up, take ownership.  Enough said.   Rinse.  Repeat.  


Don’t take things that aren’t yours.


Stuff happens.  Be mindful.  It’s that karma thing again.  Really.


Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.


Yeah, that’s a hard one but you know it makes a difference.  You’ll feel better.  The sandbox will be a better place too.


Wash your hands before you eat.


Your competition...okay, that’s a bit snarky...but hey, it’s my kindergarten class...so my rules...so there.




Yikes!  Need we address this one?  Again…


Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.


Well, the aroma of warm cookies certainly are enticing.  But the most successful of open house events have proper preparation, presentation and pricing in order - yeah, cookies are nice but those three P’s  make a bigger difference.


Live a balanced life.


Here!  Here!


Take a nap every afternoon.


Well, getting enough sleep is never bad.  Beware -- not wise during a listing presentation.


Watch for traffic. Hold hands.  


We can achieve so much by working together.


Be in awe of wonder.


The possibilities are endless.  Really.   


You can make it happen in real estate.


Remember the basics. Go forth. Prosper.
