You know when you post as many blogs as I do and you get comments on any of them the comments are appreciated. However when someone takes the time to call you with a suggestion you know some people really appreciate you blogs and are trying to help. So thanks again Ms. Rome and I'll take you up...
I know this is the first time I've used this double new word but they are needed to give this information meaning. When we take a listing, deliver a contract have a client sign any documents we are in essence doing this. Consider the meaning when you are filling out the documents as you are lib...
I thankfully don't have one of these and so far (knock on wood) I haven't experienced this. The question I have is what reaction I will have if I experience this phenomenon. I have prepared myself for such an issue. Oh by the way the meaning of insular: like an island; detached; isolated. So ...
Wouldn't it be nice to have your clients do this with you? I have most of mine do this and it's been wonderful I only wish all of them would. It takes out all guess work and opens up the line of communication between you and your client. You might ask me what galliard stands for and I'll tell ...
Well now this is a new one on me. I never heard of this word but I sure know what it means now. I've tried to get my clients to do this and 99.99% do but some just doesn't get it. As many times as I've tried they can't seem to respond to my requests. The meaning of effectors: that part of a n...
You know I really haven't looked at this I mean really looked to see if they are there. I have called it several things but not this and unless you're a carpenter I bet ya you didn't know it either. I've seen it and I've called it different things but now I know the right terminology. Dazzle y...
Every wonder how agents stay in the market when it's down. Are you one of those agents? I can tell you from experience for me it was my mindset. My broker said I could do it and I believed it. So have you let your mindset go to your mind? Little play on words but it's so true if you come to ...
Not trying to preach as goodness knows there are better people to do that than me. But I don't dwell on the past for the most part because it's just that history. We learn from our mistakes and move on. To dwell on something you regret from your past is holding you there and not letting you go...
I had other words and phrases for what I held in my hand when I graduated from high school. I looked at that document many times since then and the same for other documents I've held since that time not so long ago. If you look at your driver's license it's on there but the most important docum...
I haven't had this happen to me although sometimes I wonder. For those of you who have had this happen and have lived through it I take my hat off to you. This must be difficult but we are professionals. You must take your client by the hand and walk them through this procedure. The meaning o...
In my office we have sales meetings on Tuesday. That's okay but my argument is for Monday. Reason on Monday your fresh from the weekend (not) I don't know about you but I work on weekends. Anyway if I'm pumped on Monday than our sales meeting with my broker just makes me think I can conquer th...
When I was in law enforcement most of the officers was this. Don't get me wrong in that profession you had to be. It was a matter of life or death and I'm glad to say I was a member of a unique group of men and women. I don't find that kind of behavior in agents nor have I witnessed that in my...
I was at one of my local mega stores today getting a flat repaired. While I was waiting I observed this saying over the counter. I for one I have and I bet either you or someone you know have had the same thing happen to them. If only the people (not all mind you) that control things would lis...
That's right you're reading my header correctly. Normally I would not resort to such an outburst but this market can change in the blink of an eye. I understand that in some places they still do this and I believe we can use it to our advantage if we just try. The meaning of battue: a beating ...
I was he only agent left at the office a couple of weeks ago when a lady walked in and wanted to see an agent. It seems that she was considering listing her property. We went to a conference room and talked. She asked me one question that I thought killed the deal. "How aggressive are you"? I...
You've heard the old saying "batten down the hatches" which means to fasten canvas over the hatches but there is another meaning to this word and that's what I want to discuss. This one should be used by agents while they can before it's over. The meaning of bat-ten: to grow fat; thrive, to fat...
Wouldn't it be nice to wake up each morning and know you were going to get a listing? How about one closing each week? Do you dance for the perfection of life in real estate? If not why not you chose this profession with all its imperfections and hazards. Each morning I choose to go to the of...
In the heat of battle a soldier was injured and was taken to a local medical ward to receive treatment. He was operated on and survived the wounds. As the days passed he was recovering and a doctor asked him how he got to the hospital and he stated "My buddies carried me in." My question is do...
I have had one of these thankfully. Although I don't recommend this on a daily basis some agents like them. To those agents I take my hat off to you as I don't understand it hey it's your business not mine. Anyway I would guess you want to know the meaning of bathos well its: an abrupt often l...
If you go to a listing presentation don't let any influence from the outside affect your gut decision that this listing is just not right for you. Hopefully you decision to stay with your mate was not made on an outside influence it was because of their inner beauty among other reasons that make...
