I like number 4, smiling seems to make things a lot better in life!  All of the points you make should be taught in real estate school, haha.

Excellent list, Sheila and Larry... in my own case, I'd put #5 (listen) in #1 position. I went into this profession because I had too many poor experiences with agents who did not listen to me. I always believed that if I just listened I could run rings around most agents out there... and I have now for 28+ years.

Hello Sheila and Larry - practice may not make perfect but these "rules" will definitely lead to a better life.  In real estate and elsewhere.

Hi Lawrence and Sheila,  these are all good practices, I like all five! Having a career you love is essential to smiling and its the only way you want to keep learning. I try to interact with other real estate professionals online and treat them with kindness and respect while representing my buyers best interest. Thanks for the list and have a great day!

That is a great top 5!   One of my practices has been treating everyone like a friend or a friend soon to be.  It helps keep me doing everything else right.
