Have you ever meet some people that before they speak, or they really don't need to say a word you already know what's going to happen.  I can't I just can't work with some people and don't even want to be around them.  Just their looks conjure up thoughts of unpleasantness.  I'm not faulting the...

Are you not cautious with some clients over others?  We all know some clients need more attention than others.  We all have had those capricious clients who just drive us nuts in trying to understand why they do what they do.  The meaning of capricious is: tending to change abruptly and without a...

No I’m not telling you to go out and change the world or anything like that.  I’m not telling you to violate any Federal, State or agency rules.  What I am telling you is (with the permission of your broker) if you see something that can be streamlined do it.  If you can make the workload easier ...

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...

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...

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...
