Life is Tough - GOI (Get Over It)

Services for Real Estate Pros with Great American Title Agency

I love talking to residential Realtors. Just the other day one reminded me simply how hard the job is becoming. This world is changing, and change is hard, really hard.

Nonetheless, residential Realtors matter, particularly in today’s transforming world.

Today’s blog is simply a word of encouragement and a reminder to residential Realtors.

“You got this.” Tough stuff is tough, but GOI (Get Over it!)

This is one of the now famous Carolynism’s.

(Side note: Joanna Brooks, created the list, years ago,

it still hangs on the office wall.

A reminder that this is “what we do and not who we are”).

Back to residential Realtors.

Remember: Buying and/or selling a home in United States is a right of our citizenship. Having an agent by your side is a bonus. A licensed real estate agent is the fiduciary working for the buyer and/or seller. The agent is obligated to get the best deal for their client.

Realtors, matter! You’re valuable and you make a difference every day in our nation.

So, Realtors keep it simple (KISS) ---

  • Be SMART (develop an action plan)

  • Get to know your client and their top desires/wishes (don’t guess)

  • Create an accountability checklist for yourself (find someone to hold you answerable/responsible)

Oh, yes remember there are “no instant gardens”:

As I have alleged for years, minor changes over a long period of time have major impacts in our lives.

Minor changes become habits. And according to a recent article entitled “How Long Does it Take for Something to Become a Habit”:

“Recent research led by a team at the University College London think they have uncovered just how long (on average) it takes for something to become habitual. They do not think it takes 21 days to form a habit. They believe it takes an average of 66 days to create a habit”

Hence, today’s question--when will you start?

Remember, you are valuable, you are needed, you matter. As Nike says: “Just do it!”
