July Contest: Your Riches Are In The Niches!

Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476
Riches In The Niches - It’s JULY CONTEST TIME!
  • Topic summary - Pick The Niche That Will Get You Rich!
  • Premise: You get to keep all of your present skills, education and experience, but you have to start your real estate business completely over today. You have no database, no leads, no prior sales; it's ground zero, day one!
  • The Nuts & Bolts - Entries will be judged on what was chosen for your niche, how your niche will be marketed and branded. You must explain what lead you to this choice, the "back story.” Was it a personal reason, a passion?  Did education lead to your new niche?  Experience?  What special skills do you possess for this niche?  Is there another reason or explanation that you can share about your niche choice? 
  • Choose One Niche Only i.e. one client type, or one property type, or one location type, or one specialty service type to build your niche business on.


1,000 points for each entry

5,000 points for the best entry 

2,500 points for the second-place entry

1,500 points for the third-place entry


  • Learning Opportunity: Readers will learn what it takes to pursue this niche, how to market it and create a brand while getting to know the author better through the back story. They will also learn the power of focus vs. multi-tasking.
  • 250 word minimum.
  • Two graphic minimum, use a photo and logo (create your logo if one doesn't exist) that best represents your niche.
Our illustrious judges for the contest will be Kathy Streib, Barbara Todaro & Sally Hansen.
                 Sally K. & David L. Hanson                                          Barbara Todaro                                                        Kathy Streib                                                              
Entries to be submitted in the comments below via link to your post and must be in by JULY 31, 2018 at midnight PST. Contest winners will be announced shortly following the end of the contest and points issued shortly thereafter.

Good evening, maybe better good late night

I just stumbled upon this contest and being Margaret's entry is just above me, maybe there is rhyme and reason for this position. She does set a high bar. Thinking, granted just barely but still a dim light does seem to be the order of business. Who knows, maybe it will brighten to show the way to something profound, something new to motivate these old bones. Hopefully yours cvc
