New Year, new red ribbon and I feel good!

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

Activerain has changed my profile but not me...I have a new little red ribbon, don't I feel special... cool features as for placement in the big picture, but this is the picture so far for 2009

I wasn't able to do my normal Polar Bear Dip this year :(

Actually my kids weren't, I usually stay inside and cook Lasagna and STAY WARM!

That is ok, we had an unusually snow stricken winter and cold snap that made me spend time with my family and throw out my arm on this new Wii thingy....

I had clients lined up for showings, to view properties and to do business. Then Mother Nature decided that she was going to intervene and let us slow down and spend some quality time together.

What a wonderful time, I almost felt like I was in a time warp and things were out of my control. I had already worked on my business plan for the year and was ready to get started on it. Darn these wonderful business groups that got me kickstarted!!

Anyway I am soooo excited for the year. I have been looking at houses with a wonderful couple from Hawaii. We have so much in common and I really enjoyed spending time with them. We have a lot in common and basically life is good. period.


Another couple is buying there first home and I am excited.. because I have been there. I remember the hoops I had to go through!  3 months worth. Guess what though, they are looking at a much better % than we were. I think it was about 9-11% for me and now it is 4 and 3/4 or a tad bit more depending on all the factors.

I am working with people I am so excited about. To me, it doesn't matter what price range they are in. It is about finding what is right for them!!!

The company that I work for is positive and looks toward the future.I have been constantly impressed from week to week and love the people I work with. I actually always love the people I work with, (just my nature to look for positive things) but these guys come up with fresh new ideas from week to week.

We had a business planning meeting that involved all members, and came up with something that is going to blow the socks off the community in the future.

   I have implemented my plan and I am already ahead of the goals I set. My team is doing very well even though we are in a R.......n.   See... I can't even say it, or spell it out completely.

This past year, the sale I was most excited about was a home less than 20,000 dollars. I referred the selling portion to another agent that could advise them appropriately. His wife spoke the language fluently and basically.... it was the right thing to do. He is an activerain member and that is how I found him.

 He is now my teammate and I love it!! We are going to have a great year and I look forward to 2009!

Agent Carey - Sounds like you are off to a good start for 2009. You have a good plan and an attitude that tolerates adversity.  Both of those put you far ahead of most people.  Good Luck!
