You Need More Than Motivation Alone

I want to get a little personal with you today. I want to know your “why”. Why are you a realtor? What drives you? What makes you get up every morning and follow up with those leads, and make new contacts?

Do you have your why? Write it down as a reference for yourself.

Ok, now that you have your why, what is your goal? Do you have one?

I want to ask you something: what are you doing to reach your goal?

 

We’ve all got goals that we want to achieve in our business and for most of us the path starts by setting a goal. I want to challenge your way of thinking. I’ve realized that when it comes to getting things done and actually making progress in your business, there’s a much better way of going

Getting Approved for a Mortgage

Finding the ideal home can (and should be!) exciting for most people.

THE POWER OF TALK

Texting has made its way into one of the top forms of communication. It’s great when you need short updates or fast talks, but they can have their cons. There’s a time for texting and a time for phone calls or even, dare I say, face-to-face communication. To know the proper avenues of communication will prove something of value to your business. Sending texts to your clients may seem effective and able to save time, but there can be consequences you might not realize. Texts can easily send the wrong message when read the wrong way, which can result in a disgruntled client. Texts can lose their personal touch and seem out of place in certain situations.
