The Market is What We Make It!!

Do you remember back in the late 70's. Energy prices were up and talk of alternative energy was everywhere. No one had even heard of SOLAR PANELS, but some creataive companies & salesman, got busy & sold by cold calling, & door knocking. Now this sound so outdated in todays world. I absolutely agree that technology must move forward, as I personally own 24 domain names & 7 websites.

There was not a market for solar panels until salespeople got busy & started selling. That's where Real Estate Professionals are missing the boat. They are not selling. They are waiting for the leads to come in, via phone, internet. It's going to take extra effort to be successful in todays market. Who is up to the task? That's who I want working at my office. Let's get busy & create a market.

I agree...... not pushy, but a true professional would be a start!

I agree with your thoughts on this. It reminds me of a story about selling umbrellas when it starts raining. Of course, there are plenty of buyers for umbrellas when the rain starts to pour!

In just about every market, real estate is being stifled by short-sales and foreclosures... A real seller just can't compete. What I'm trying to say is... You can't sell ice to an Eskimo!
