"CONFRONT THE BRUTAL FACTS BUT NEVER LOSE HOPE THAT IN THE END WE WILL PREVAIL" : What I Learned In The Past Three Years

" I don't trust a person whose never been depressed," Dan Betzer once said.

 

 

The number one disease in our industry is blind optimism. 

I love my profession.  I love NAR.  I love how the past three years has been the hardest times in my career. 

"This market will separate the men from the boys," said JoAnne Correira- ain't that the truth. 

Yet through these three years I have grown emotionally,professionally,mentally even spiritually at a pace that would put Michael Schumacher to shame.

But if we want our profession to survive and thrive in the next hundred years, Heaven help us to be intellectually honest with ourselves and most especially towards the market.

 

But we don't have to stop here ladies and gentlemen. We just have to start there.  Nobody wakes up in the morning and says to herself, "Oh I can't wait to meet my miserable real estate agent."

Jim Stockedale said it best, "confront the brutal facts but never lose hope that in the end you will prevail."

..And life, I promise you, will become a romance.

 

Because in the end, we shall prevail: How I Survived The Reno Real Estate Market Downturn Through The Eyes Of Bear Grylls
