I spoke with a former colleague today. She has been in the real estate business for more than thirty years and today, instead of cold calling, she was applying to J.C. Penny to work in their shoe department and to Kohl's to work in any department. She is desperate for cash, no deals for the past 7 months or more and a mortgage to pay. OK so I've read about it and I'm living it and the clichés about the market being "between my ears" are not working for me.... frankly I'm concerned...oh heck truth is I'm scared. A veteran realtor told me on Friday he had 30 listings, none of them selling. So, I wonder, what's the point of that? Am I not better off with my buyers who I am juggling at the moment? Problem is when they are gone, they are gone! Sort of like a blue light special at K-mart. I am told by the powers that be if I hang on during this "rough patch" I will be the better for it, I will have gained the respect of my fellow Realtors and will be right up there with the likes of the Donald..... Pardon me for being skeptical but it's not helping this fear in my stomach settle down. I know that Listings are my life blood and so I must try hard to get some more but you have to believe in your product to really do well, I've ALWAYS believed in my product because quite frankly that would be me after all that's what I'm selling to my potential clients, my abilities... although they are as sharp as ever so are the tongues of my fellow Realtors clients as they ask why have their listings not sold yet and sharp tongues are just not my forte' Oh well, keep the faith I tell myself over & over it's got to get better out there soon, doesn't it?
