I've been using the 12 week year for over 4 years. I've read the book and took the training at Buffini & Company's Peak Experience.  My new one starts 8/3/2020. It's a great way to drill down only 3 goals, your most important 3 for the next 3 months. You can start yours anytime, it doesn't have to coincide with the calendar quarters because in between each 12 Week Year, you need to take at least one week off after completion to rest & recharge. This achieve was worth a read for those of you its new too. by Dermot Buffini   It’s the first quarter of the year, the time when we’re still feeling that initial surge of motivation from the new year, and we’re confident this will be the year that we achieve all our goals. However, motivation doesn’t last and without it, we’re less likely to rea...

When you stop into a convenience store to pick up a cold beverage, you probably spend less than a minute figuring out what you want to drink. When you buy real estate, you might spend weeks looking for the right property for your needs. You don't invest much in your decision to buy a drink because you only have to live with a bad drink decision for a short amount of time. However, buying a property requires a large financial investment and commitment, which means that real estate agents have to have a different marketing strategy than regular businesses that sell a product.14 Ways Your Real Estate Business Can Increase Sales1.

We all process data differently, We all see different colors, smell different scents.  It is all perfectly natural and needs to be accepted.When we go to bed each night, it is not the end of the world.  It is a ne beginning every day when we wake up.  Along these same lines, Everyone wants and needs different things to be happy.  I can actually tell when a person is happy or what makes a person happy.  It makes sense that everyone does not want to be homeless.   I can and I want to help you find a home.    I would love to see you happy.    Finding the perfect house isn’t easy, don’t give up. I’m with you every step of the way.

Many sales professionals understand sales objections. These are reasons justified or not when buyers object to making a purchase. Sometimes these sales objections are really stall decisions which a sales professional can address.   Two examples of sales objections would be: The property is in a Homeowner’s Association (HOAs) The property is on septic  For real estate agents, there are sales objections, but also sales obstacles. By identifying these roadblocks and removing them, the purchase or listing of the house or vacant land can move forward. Possibly, the best example for buyer’s agents is the pre-qualification letter. In AZ, there is an actual pre-qualification form that must be submitted with the written sales contract offer.  Sometimes getting lenders to adhere to this contractu...

 This is great saying.  I told someone this today.    Now, more than ever before during this Covid-19 Pandemic, people are actually reading.  They’re reading local and major newspapers that are available. They are reading all of their mail, and at least glancing at postcards. I create a full page newspaper “marketing piece” to complement the theme of the postcard that I provide for each month.  The theme this month will be focused on the keyword “Caring.” Caring is what clients want from the agent. It does not matter what your production might be; it’s of no consequence whether you are a seasoned agent or just at the onset of your career.  If the client knows you care, everything works out just fine.

Cooperation is the key to success. Pick a side and stay there. Help yourself by helping the other agent.  It’s just good business!!!        One of the most important factors available to all real estate agents is the ability to cooperate with other agents via MLS. That’s the main purpose of MLS. It’s to display all listings of its members to enable buyer agents to have that information readily available for their buyer clients. Cooperation is one of the most valuable components in the real estate industry. When agents learn to have faith in the system and find agents who are like-minded, the only result will be a positive one. In an extreme sellers’ market, agents who cooperate with each other will share information regarding features and areas for which their buyer client is searching....

The charity chronicle in the Republic of Uzbekistan would not be complete if Patokh Chodiev was not mentioned in it. Despite the long absence on his patrimony for the sake of developing business and increasing his capital, the philanthropist makes significant efforts to help those in need and to develop infrastructure, education and culture. He invested hundreds of millions of American dollars so that his country would receive new orphanages, schools, and clinics.Patokh Chodiev: the beginning of a life path and life outside UzbekistanJizzakh region can be proud of the fact that Patokh Chodiev was born in 1953 on its vastness. He grew up in a middle-income family, where besides him, there were six children. The future billionaire is used to working from a young age: he went to work in th...

It’s clear that the pandemic affected and oftentimes changed work practices. It’s apparent face-to-face communication isn’t the only way real estate agents can do their business. The events of the last few months clearly showed that many real estate agents weren’t prepared for the scale of events, and it affected their work, despite the real estate services being considered as essential in most states. With the expectation of a possible second wave of coronavirus outbreaks, it’s time for the real estate agents to adapt their work practices to the call of the times and incorporate technologies in their daily practices.In this article, we will talk about Realtyna’s add-ons and how and why you should use them right now.Market Reports Add-onThe real estate industry is changing very fast rig...

There is a difference even tho most folks might not or don't recognize the difference.  The house is the building and the home is what you make of a house.   This idea has been strengthened these last few months as we have spent more time in our homes.  I feel now more than ever that most folks have discovered the more time we have spent in our home that it might be too large, too small or in the wrong location.   I can help you find a new home.   Finding the right person can be hard, but finding the perfect house shouldn't be. Let me help you find your forever home today!  #thehelpfulagent #therighthome #houseexpert #home #listreports #therightone #realestate #realestateagent
