Are you one of those agents who will tell a client anything to get the listing?  Do you tell your buyers the moon is the limit and then don't deliver?  Do you make promises that you know deep down inside you, you can't make good?  If so than you are a pie crust agent.  Be as solid as the pan you ...

I wonder how many of you are going to read this one.  Also I wonder how many are going to comment or use this today or tomorrow or next week, month, year you get the idea.  Now for those of you who don't know me I do this every minute of every day of every week and again you get the idea.  If you...

I personally haven't seen one of these but I know they exist.  What do you use to cut away the fat?  The fat I'm talking about with this word is fat from any kind of meat be it beef, chicken, pork etc.  The meaning of ulu: a knife with a broad, almost semicircular blade.  The fat you need to conc...

Ask yourself this question can you answer it with authority?  So let me ask those of you who can't readily answer the question are you a great salesperson.  How about a great listing agent or buyer's agent. Do you keep your promises to your clients?  All of us have talents that we don't recognize...

Man I like this word.  I do this just to get a reaction from people.  I'm not bragging just fact I am good heck no I'm real good at this.  I only know of a few people that do this but when they are in the "grove" they are great.  I can just sit back and watch them for a long time.  The meaning of...

I do this on a consistence basis do you?  If not I bet this is one of the main reasons you don't get that listing or only have one visit with a buyer.  You only get one shot and if you miss they will come to me.  I do this every day and try to improve on it.  The meaning of proem: an introduction...

I do this consistently and on a daily basis.  Do I win each and every battle?  I would like to say without hesitation yes but that doesn't work either.  Do I ever give up bet your life I don't?  I go down fighting with my last breath.  You may ask why because I believe I'm the best and there's no...

When you stood up in front of the other agents with your local board and raised your right hand you swore an oath.  To that end you owe this to your clients.  I'm currently working through a mess and am trying to work things out with the seller and buyer but I think this one is a lost cause.  I w...

You'll like this one.  It's like the macerate one I used a while back.  If you can do this you can get more sellers and buyers.  It's a simple concept but how you do it is up to you.  I have my methods and the possibilities are endless on how you do this.  The meaning of uncinate: bent like a hoo...

I write blogs using words not associated with real estate and turn them into usage associated with something in real estate.  Anyway the other day I wrote a blog and another agent wrote the caption for this blog.  When I first read it I thought of Dr. Seuss and his books.  How many times do you u...

Everyone has one and the job for you is to find it in your clients.  Most of you know the common analogy of spur is something cowboys tied onto boots and used it to get the horse moving.  Another common thought is bone spurs.  The kind of spur I'm looking for is the meaning I took from it and tha...

I'm a fan of old movies especially war movies.  I've watched some of them so much I can quote a lot of them verbatim.  One of my favorites is Sergeant York.  For those of you who haven't seen it I suggest you do so.  It has a lot of things that America once stood for but has lost.  One of the lin...

Wouldn't be nice if every client or agent was to do this?  It would make our job so much easier.  Some agents that are sitting on the sideline might even enjoy coming to work.  I know it would make me work even harder than I do but do you think this is really going to happen?  We can only hope so...

This is a good one.  You do this without thinking and you do this on a daily basis.  So tell me do you do this and if not why not it's your job.  I constantly think of this and I do this all the time.  My mind is in motion and its thinking of this for my clients or my future business.  The meanin...

I do this on a consistent basis and I wonder do you.  This is not easy to do and sometimes it's downright frustrating to the point of why bother.  I do this because it has brought me sales and referrals.  Most agents pass over these and I take advantage of the situation. You might ask what fossa ...

So there you are living day to day wondering when the next person is going to call you to list their property.  You might be lying on the couch feeling sorry for yourself because the sell you thought was (in the bag) fell through.  Are you thinking of giving up and going to get a "real" job?  Ple...

I haven't had this happen to me by my clients (present and past) or by my fellow agents.  In my past profession I certainly have had it happen to me on more times than I care to admit, none of which I was guilty of.  But any way I hope this has not happened to you as I know all agents are (should...

This rule applies to everyone.  No one is exempt however some may be grandfathered in but certain rules apply.  Whenever rules change you will find these people.  I've did this in the past but I found it is better to role with the punches than do this.  The meaning of obstreperous is:  noisy, boi...

I know when I started in this business I needed guidance as I was trying to fill out the documents using terminology I used in law enforcement.  I quickly found out the words that were common to me were foreign to real estate.  It took me awhile to adjust so don't let your contracts be on quaky g...
