What is your attitude towards real estate?

Day in and day out I'm asked by someone or I hear one of the agent's in our office being asked - "So how is your market?"  Time and time again I hear agents say "Oh, it's been really slow", one agent even said to a previous client "Really not making a bit of money right now, just trying to get by". 

sad guy

Now before you start thinking our market is suffering - because it sure isn't - let me tell you a little about the agent's I'm hearing these comments from - these are the agents who:  don't come into the office(Yeah - I'm really going to hand out leads to that wonderful agent sitting on the couch watching soap operas who thinks all they had to do to get rich was get a real estate license!!), don't return client calls (Really? You're that busy?), have no interest in learning anything new that could help them turn their business around (HELLO! I can tell you what you need to be doing - just can't make you do it!!), and above all - Your attitude really sucks!

Everyday, whether I have appointments or not - I get up, get dressed and I head into the office (now the office part might now apply to some of the agents that work at home - but still you should do the part of getting up and getting dressed!)

I get to the office early so that I can get a start on the day before everyone else gets there and being that we have such a storefront real estate office I think it allows previous clients and all those soon-to-be clients a chance to see that I'm always working!  That this is not a hobby to me - this is my career!

I make a list of things I plan to accomplish for the day (I'll admit, I'm easily sidetracked- so a list is very good for me).

After getting my list together - with a positive attitude about how wonderful my day could end up being - I start brainstorming for my business, for new ways to get my clients homes sold, the list goes on.......

And due greatly in part to the fact that I am truly excited about real estate in our area, when people ask me how our market is - I can truthfully tell them "It's absolutely great! 

So tell me, which agent would you want to work with?  smiley face
