 Looking Back What a Difference a Decade Makes in RE

This was tough-how to choose only 10 changes over the past decade. But here goes.

1-My husband's heart attacks, strokes and surgeries. Each time, these shocking physical events stopped me in my tracks. Although it's been challenging financially, I've cut back a lot on how much time I invest in busienss.

2-My own aging body and physical pains. Getting old ain't for sissies. I now have to devote significant chunks of time into stretches, walks and other tasks just to get out of bed and be functional daily.

3-Moved from Keller Williams Cupertino "back home" to my more family friendly brokerage of Altas Realty. It just feels right.

4-Gave up having an outside office. This was probably one of the harder things to do. I'm still consolidating.

5-Learning how to do things "my way". Even though my Mom passed in 2005, I'm still learning to do things my way, not her way.

6-Stopped buying my own leads back from Zillow.

7-Stopped buying my own leads back from Realtor.com

8-Stopped buying my own leads back from Trulia.

9-Stopped buying my own leads back from all other websites and apps, etc.

10-Rebuilding my website. This is so painful. I had built a great site with tons (10 years plus worth) of content, but the technology had changed. I'm still working on this one.

You aren't the only real estate professional that is mirroring your numbers 6 thru 9.  And, my own website needs significant work.  However, I have decided to wait until this busy summer is over, and weather keeps me more indoors to tackle it.

Myrl,

So done with wasting money chasing down "leads" when I could just call people I know instead.

I see some great trends here Michelle...  more self care and less feeding "the beast".  You've nicely identified what more of us need to focus on.  Best wishes for a great last half of the year.
