YOU Really Are the Key to Success...


The other day I was thinking about some of the television shows that I never could get into. They offered pretty much the same thing that the other programs did but I always ended up switching channels. jk


 Let’s face it, plots rarely vary that much. So why do we have some shows that become our favorites...the ones we continue to watch? I think it’s because of the characters AND the actors playing them. 

(Ask Barbara Todaro  about N.C.I.S.!)


There is an inexplicable thing called chemistry that links people.  This relates to all interactions of people, not just the chemistry that exists between our loved ones.


YOU are the key ingredient that can attract and keep a client. Other firms or teams offer what you offer but there’s a special ingredient called YOU that is what will cause a seller or buyer to want to work with you. 


Discover what is unique to you, develop it, then get out there and flaunt it!!!

A band's only unique thing is its chemistry, especially if none of you are prodigious players or particularly handsome. The one thing you have is your uniqueness, so we hold on to that. Chris Martin

Good morning, Kathy Streib I fully agree with all that you said.... there is a special attraction and you can blend Chemistry into that equation....  NCIS Los Angeles was a "marathon" yesterday and then Chicago PD....  my two favorites.... I love Sunday.... plus a day of sunshine!!!!

I don't have much of a TV show addiction...the older I get the less interested I am in this medium...a good Shark Tank now and then....

Good morning Kathy Streib - I didn't know that N.C.I.S was Barbara Todaro 's favorite.  Phyllis watches that all the time.  And relationships matter.  People do business with people they like.

I liked NCIS also for the relationships that the characters had between them, and then the plots became over the top negative and incredulous...That ended it for us.  Ron baby sat for Mark Harmon's siblings at his parent's house. Ron lived 5 houses up the street.  Mark Harmon lived a block away from us in Los Angeles.

Now back to uniqueness, it is what we preach day in and day out, and what some are afraid of...A

This is so true. I wonder how many agents do not realize that buyers or sellers use them BECAUSE of THEM. Nice post  :)

Hello Kathy - it's like being back in high school: Chemistry - Biology - Physics.  The basics in all forms matter.  Cue: the nerd alert laugh track.

Hi Donald Urschalitz that is so true. The minute we think only of ourselves, we have lost our professionalism. 

Barbara Todaro I thought of you yesterday!! LOL- we watched Wimbledon then the Astros but I knew what you were watching.

George Souto I agree...develop it and celebrate it. 

Grant Schneider Tell Phyliss that I am a huge fan of NCIS!  (besides sports!)

Ron and Alexandra Seigel OMG !!!!  Tell Ron I'm jealous!  We were at The Cove on the Intracoastal years ago. We were leaving, heading to the dock where our boat was and I'm 99.9% sure we saw Mark Harmon as we walked out. My friend's daughter and I stopped dead in our tracks!!!

 Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty the wonderful lady we used in Houston for several of our houses we used because of who she was.

Michael Jacobs lousy at chemistry and physics did ok with biology.  I'm only a semi-nerd.

Thank goodness I'm the only one, the world just couldn't handle two of me.  Sometimes, I find it difficult to handle myself

It seems that some business owners just don't understand this. 

The "who" can be just as important as the "what" you are selling.
