Channeling My Inner Goofsraba

Channeling My Inner Goofsraba

 

In a changing market, to maintain a competitive edge successfully in real estate, I must prepare to meet it, rather than wait for it to happen. No sense in getting overly stressed about something outside the scope of control.

 

Am so thankful to remain in an industry that has taught me so much. Not only am I a negotiator but an effective marketer, advertiser, counselor, content writer, advisor to both buying and selling clients and so much more!

 

Here is what I choose to do:

Avoid panic.

Many are accustomed to the brisk buying and selling of the last cycle. As leads dry up, they become stricken. It's important to remain focused on reaching goals that are attainable by stepping back to look at the overall picture.

 

Remain engaged.

Continue to connect with past clients. People like doing business with people they can relate to and are familiar with, thankfully my past clients continue to refer. It's business as usual when staying with soft touch marketing.

 

Stay professional.

Avoid getting caught up with the doomsdayers. Part of serving buyers and sellers well, means putting my best self forward, instead of allowing fear to prevent taking necessary steps toward achieving sought after goals.

 

Learn something.

Take a class or go to a seminar that may offer training, tools and education on how to thrive in a changing market. Network alongside local agents may also offer insights through conversations. Ask questions, get answers.

 

Be authentic.

It is definitely good for business and personal relationships and people can easily sense when anything but genuine. That gets to the core of how to successfully run a business through caring and trustworthy practices.

 

Consumers buy and sell property in any real estate market, it's important to offer them value through knowledge. By taking a calm, logical approach, I am able to effectively channel my inner goofsraba and move forward.

 

How is yours, by the way?

The best way to navigate successfully a changing market is to be slow and steady and meet it, Dorie Dillard Austin TX. Those who have been through this, are definitely better prepared!

Well Wanda I had no idea what Goofsraba was but I do now!  I must have taken that class years ago (as in from my first broker) as I stay calm in every market, in fact every day.   But now I can use this word and have fun with it!!  Thanks!
