Well this year is the best up to now, since 1980. And what is even more exciting, 2017 will become even better. Just pulled out my HP12C and looks like 80% increase in income for 2017 over 2016! 2016 was only a 42% increase over 2015.
If I were a betting person, I would bet $1,000.00 attainment of that number will happen.
And when this shoulder pain goes away in February, LOOK OUT! It has taken some time for me to find the mindset I have wanted for years, and learn how to avoid the people in a polite way who earn less than I yet, want to tell me what to do and how to do it, and in many cases they do not even have a real estate license.
That shoulder replacement in August has caused distraction on a regular basis, and now that I am learning to ignore the pain, and focus on who I can help, and only those who: know me, trust me and like me, it is more profitable.
Obama is gone Trump will be in, so YOU have No More Excuses.
Now if you say you are new, that is no excuse. I sold 12 homes in my first six months and did not know what I was doing in 1978 - Oh did I mention that was in Ohio, where three months of that six months there was cold, ice, and snow.
Oh and you whining about interest rates? Well I know they were higher than 6% in those days. You see I had so much excitement, energy, desire, and drive, I didn't know there were Realtors who failed when I began. Some people would call that ignorant, I realize it was a good thing.
