Tuesday Thoughts: Some Fish Stories Are True...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

A fish story is defined as an extravagant, improbable, usually boastful exaggeration of the size of the fish that was caught.  It also applies to tall tales people tell of their exploits and accomplishments.  We spotted this sculpture of a very big fish on top of a truck displayed at the Island View Nursery in Carpinteria. Some fish stories are true!

 

Happy Tuesday!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

Ahh, but if it's true, is it really a fish story?

Good morning Alexandra. Caught and placed or did the fish just jump up there? Just asking! Enjoy your day!

Alexandra, that's an interesting sculpture, I like it and someone either has a great imagination or really caught a huge fish at some point.

Good morning Ron and Alexandra Seigel, fish sculptures can be spotted in South FL. Some fish stories are true, however, some scream exaggerated.

If someone caught a fish that big it would be quite a battle to do so.  What a cool sculpture. Have a terrific Tuesday

All fish stories tend to be based in Realty. They just seem to get "enhanced" a bit :)

Ha, this post, and photo,  makes a good fish story.  Fun fishy, as opposed to something's not right, fishy.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- we've heard our share of fish stories back in our fishing days!  That sculpture certainly is a conversation piece.

Alexandra loved the post and indeed if you wrote the post without that illustration and only referenced it many people would have presumed you are telling a Fish Story:))Endre

I've heard some "fish stories" in my past, this one is right up there.  The difference is you have proof!

I tell a story about the worst listing appointment in history that happened to me. People find it hard to believe and I found it harder to forget.
