It’s THIS simple! Without this, there’s nothing a REALTOR can do to to help you navigate the process of buying or selling a house through to a smooth closing. First and foremost, you must make the all important decision to move. For transparent clarity, here’s what Webster has to say: Decision no...

Pretty much every day, I hear of a new real estate firm business model. That’s what happens when the market is HOT . . .   Suddenly, everyone wants to be a REALTOR because the myth tells them that all REALTORS are KILLING it in this HOT market.   For sure, the population and REALTORS and firms ha...

Being nice is an often overlooked productivity tool. Just think about the toll not being nice has on us. Being mean-spirited and nasty is a wrecking ball for any and all efforts to perform at a high level. Everyone involved develops amnesia as to what the goal might be . . . The DISTRACTION that ...

“I’ll find out if I like it when I get there . . . ” This morning, I was “inspired” to talk about the “Business Decision” to move to a different Firm. My observation of REALTORS and Mortgage Loan Originators hopping from firm to firm mystifies me, and it occurs to me that pretty much everything I...
Every day is a great opportunity to step up our game.   Maybe it’s time for some new (better) habits?   I often hear the question: “What can I do NOW to improve my business?”   Interestingly, it always boils down to a mantra of the same 2 habits and 1 project which I’ve been “preaching” for years...

I had a profound revelation at last night’s soccer game. Playing the game isn’t ALL about winning. If we make it ALL about winning, there must be a loser. Most folks make a big about this “Competition” as if it’s the end-all/be-all for all things in life. So . . . If you don’t WIN, you’re a FAILU...

Threatening lawsuit is NOT the path of least resistance to conflict resolution. In fact, the threat of lawsuit will almost certainly result in immediate cessation of anything akin to useful dialog. Spirited debate is healthy (I think of watching puppies as they figure out their hierarchy of domin...

Please define for me what you mean in terms of “a good time to buy or sell”. What’s your goal? Are you trying to “Time the Market”? . . . That is – Hit that exact sweet spot at which you can sell your house at the TOP dollar ever and forever and buy your next house with the LOWEST price and BEST ...

Odds are very low that many “Bosses” will print this list of 20 questions . . .and immediately schedule “sit-downs” with all of their employees. Most bosses wouldn’t DARE ask most of these questions because they don’t want to know the answers . . . Truth hurts when it’s “off-script” and not what ...

A few weeks ago, I learned that the space (Building) Pareto Realty lives in is for sale and will likely be demolished. My first thought was “Let’s not wait for the grass to grow.” Leaders seize initiative and take action, so . . . I did! I’m a believer that all change is inherently good regardles...

So often, we slide along with a free-wheeling approach to life. Yep! Going through the motions day in and day out . . . Life is easier this way because we get to avoid the tension/stress that shows up when we’re living intentionally. The difference between living intentionally and not boils down ...
