The Power Of Being Positive

To all my Realtor friends, clients and prospective clients who might be interested in my take on our current housing market.  I just finished reading a blog post about a lady who got a listing by being in line at her local Walmart -- while she could have been negative about the real estate market, that was not how she handled the situation.  She was honest, explained what she and her company could do for this gentleman and in the end they both walked away with something.  She had a new listing and he had a new, positive agent that was ready to get his home sold!  And that's what it takes!

I know in the current market it's easy to look at the negatives of our situation - but instead of dwelling on how things could be different, use that time and energy to 1.) educate yourself -- if you do see that you have a little more free time than in years past, take this time to get caught up or learn something new. 2.) mentor someone else in your office --how many of us have new agents in the office who could benefit from all that knowledge we have stored away?  It'll make you feel good about being able to help someone and it will make your office as a whole look better in the public eye! 3.) volunteer - this is a great way to meet potential clients that you might not have met otherwise and help out your community.  4.) work on your contact list -- I for one am bad about letting a few slip through the cracks.  I am taking steps now to make sure that each and every lead I get receives the attention it deserves. 5.) think of new marketing strategies you could use --maybe pick an area you could farm, send out a newsletter to your SOI, spiffy up your listing presentation-- you get the idea!

All in all - stay positive!  We have the coolest job on the planet!  Make sure other's can see that in you!!

If you or someone you know is looking for a positve, energetic, knowledgeable Realtor -- I hope you will call on me!
