self care sunday Oct 23, 2020
 

Remember when the lockdowns first hit this spring? Many of us wondered how quickly we'd find ourselves in a buyer's market.

What scared me most as a real estate agent

self care sunday Oct 17, 2020
 

There are many things you could choose to worry about when running a real estate practice. Personal safety, steady commissions, keeping up with technology - the list could go on forever if you let it.

There was even a time when agents worried eBay would take over the industry. Remember that one veterans? Anyway, eBay reminded me of one of the few things things worth worrying about in real estate.

Check out this week’s vlog and learn to direct your concern where it matters...

Guaranteed way to get noticed by clients

self care sunday Oct 09, 2020
 

The world is super noisy right now. It seems like the more we wish for life to calm down and "return to normal" the crazier it gets. I mean, how can each week be unprecedented?! That word is about to lose its meaning.

All you want to do is help people and make sales, right? In what is certain to be the most distracted 4th quarter ever, you'll need to break through the noise and make a real connection.

Truth be told, it's incredibly easy to break through. So easy in fact, people often forget how. Here's your reminder...

The only way you'll ever take a day off

self care sunday Oct 01, 2020
 

 

You deserve a day off. I mean a full day away from work each week, both physically and mentally. After all, the ability to control your schedule is one of the reasons you went into self-employment, isn't it? Yet so many agents struggle to do just that.

I'm often told that what people remember most from our work together is the inspiration and ability gained to take as much time off (guilt free) as they want. When I hear this, I know they've learned a secret that goes beyond time blocking and the "perfect daily schedule".

Watch this week's vlog to learn what my clients love even more than becoming great at sales!

How a Realtor Lost My Business

self care sunday Sep 19, 2020
 

Hey, happy Sunday! I've been in real estate since high school and a licensed Texas Realtor since 1994. I've coached agents all over the country and worked with them on personal business in states where I don't have a license.

So, I like to think I have about as much empathy as one could have for a fellow agent. But, when you blow it, you blow it.

Recently a California Realtor lost my business and isn't even aware of it. I made this week's vlog so you could learn from his mistake! Check it out...

What social influencers are doing that you should copy

self care sunday Sep 12, 2020
 

Hey! Let's play a game.

QUICK: How many followers do you have on Instagram?

NOW: How many people are in your database and on your email list?

Which number are you more certain you got right? If the answer was Instagram, don't feel bad, that just makes you normal.

But you're not after normal. You're after your version of the top producer life, right?

This week I read a report on what serious "influencers" are doing to lock in their influence -and income, long term. There's a good lesson in the report for all of us. Check out this week's vlog where I share it with you...

5 Tips For Agents Born After 9/11/2001

inspiration Sep 11, 2020

Dear 18-year old agent,

I remember the day I got the results of my real estate license exam in the mail. It was just a few weeks after I’d turned 18 and as I slid the single piece of paper out of the envelope from the Texas Real Estate Commission, it said simply “PASS”. I was looking out from my third floor apartment balcony and felt like I was literally on the top of the world. After working at the Texas Association of Realtors throughout high school, I was convinced that I would soon become just as rich as I assumed all the Realtors around me were.

Now that I’m 45, with full knowledge of what it really takes to make it in this business, I envy the hopeful, newbie energy you no doubt have. I encourage you to hold onto that excitement and hopefulness as long as possible. We can never be certain about the future except to know that challenges and adversity will come.

This morning I realized that the September 11th attacks on the United States happened 19 years...

Why you won't be Zooming with clients forever

self care sunday Sep 05, 2020
 

Hey, happy Labor Day! The summer sure has zoomed by, hasn't it?!

Okay cheesy jokes aside, this week my book editor asked me if, after the pandemic passes, agents would resume meeting with clients in person.

I said of course and told her that in many areas, agents never stopped meeting with clients in person.

The reason even the most locked down cities will eventually see a return to face-to-face interactions holds a key to creating experiences that will strengthen your bond with clients. And that should mean more repeat and referral business.

Check out the video to learn why you won’t be on Zoom forever...and why that’s good for business.
