It's Been a Long Time!!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Heritage Homes PB00007070

It's been a long time since my last blog.  I'm hoping to have more time to post blogs now that my year as Vice President of NAR is over!!  What a great opportunity it was to represent our 1.2 million members. 

As I begin to plan my year for 2016 I've taken so time to reflect on the past and think about the journey ahead.  Life is truly a journey.  Our business is a journey.  Here is the 1 fact I'm certain of-- to enjoy the Journey, you've Got to Show Up!!  Showing up is 80% of the journey.  The ride is about the 20%. The real question is what are we doing to make a difference.  A difference in our business.  A difference in our community.  A difference in our Family!!  I don't have the answers but I challenge you to think about the Journey!!


It's all about the Journey

Not really sure why people are upset with NAR. Hard working group of leaders who represent the industry and the public with integrity. Hope to get a lot of questions and I  look forward to responding.

I can imagine that the NAR VP position was a relentless time sucker.  Glad you are freed up to blog more.
