I just started a new group.  The name of it is "Wordsmith" and it's out there for anyone to post.  Here are the rules: This group is dedicated to those who wish to use words not readily associated with real estate but can use them to associate it with something in real estate. No vulgarities plea...

Man ole man do I like Webster the dictionary that is.  So tell me are you the ampelopsis of your agency?  The meaning according to Webster is a climbing vine.  We all have the agents who come into the office and right off the bat they are million dollar producers per month.  Then there are those ...

According to Webster one of the meanings is: a cutting off, as by surgery.  Now I need to relate that to real estate.  Do you have one of those agents, clients, friends who just drive you crazy?  Get rid of them by abscission not literally but figuratively (don't want any harm to anyone).  Free y...

We all think we are the best negotiator, listing agent, buyer's agent or the very best dual agent.  So tell me are you the best, do you strive for excellence in your work?  If so do you met your standards?  If you answered yes then skip the rest of this and continue on.  If not then why not.  If ...

I believe you're the best agent in your office.  I know you believe in your industry and your product.  In this business you have to be the best if you're going to make it.  I know for myself I'm the best in my office and I  truly believe in myself and my abilities.  I'm not arrogant just stating...

Do you shop at one of the large supermarkets, clubs, chain stores or you local grocery store?  Do you buy fuel for your vehicle?  Do you go to the movie theatre or out to eat?  If so how many potential clients do you meet in a day?  If you have not approached them about the industry you're in, an...

Ever wonder how successful people get to where there at?   Well it's not by sitting on their duff waiting for the phone to ring, showing up with a listing presentation that is half put together or a contract lacking the elements of what the buyer asked for.  They get there by rolling up their sle...

I know I've written on this subject in the past but it keeps rearing its ugly head.  I feel compelled to write another article.  It's the same old story when you go to the doctor and not feeling well you want him or her to be on top of their game.  So why sometimes do you take a listing or talk t...

I'm only a babe in the woods as far as the real estate business goes.  There have been times that I've just wanted to thrown in the towel and go home.  That's not how I'm built but I saw no way around it.  It was like I was pouring money down into an empty pit with no return.  To those of you who...

Calling all agents.  This is the one and only time you will hear this from me (not really).  If you're in NW Arkansas around Benton & Washington Counties if you don't call that expired or FSBO today I will.  There is enough out there for all of us but we do live in HOG COUNTRY!!!  If you don't ge...

Let's face it sooner or later you will succumb to what everyone in history has done.   To that end why go around like your life depended on it.  Sure we all have clients that need our attention.  There are things we would like to do before we are called upon.  However in the end the earth has rev...

If your agency does not have anyone able or willing to help new agents out then you might want to get someone or volunteer yourself.  When I first started I would have saved myself a ton of money and worry if someone would have done that for me.  I'm not saying to take someone and hold their hand...

I heard agents use this phrase more times than I would like.  The thing is they sit around and wait for the phone to ring or don't do much at all in making contacts.  They wonder why their sales are down and they are not making any money.  With that attitude even a blind person can see why.  Come...

Sometimes I wonder why I'm in this insane and crazy business.  Just think I have a retirement check coming in like clockwork.  But I'm a workaholic and if I wasn't doing this I would be doing something else just as insane.  When I do a job I'm the kind it's all or nothing and I'm too close to get...

No I'm not saying to not learn from them just don't dwell on the failures from your past experiences.  Just because someone called you on an error or you were reprimanded does not give you permission to hide within your shell.  Just learn from your past errors or failures and move on there is ano...
