"Thank you so much for working with me and coaching me. The coaching calls we had together help me go from a place where I was grateful for my business but felt like I was barely staying afloat because I was so busy, to a place where I can just be grateful, excited and moving forward with my business. Your big picture thinking, along with your small tips and tricks has really had a positive impact on me in both my personal and professional life. Thank you for all of your help and advice!"

How is your 2016 going so far? Are you loving this market making great money? OR: Are you burned out, working hard with not enough to show for it? It seems to be a common theme right now, especially if you are working with buyers. Spring is a time of busy markets and endless distractions. How you handle these next few months will determine whether you enjoy sales all year long or crash and burn.

The Power of the Pause

By Nicole | February 16, 2018

Holy Real Estate markets! I’m pretty sure this would be Robin’s take on the market if he and Batman were agents. Last year was a tight market, with fewer listings and higher appreciation rates than the year before. Sure enough, the stats just came out for January of 2018 showing even fewer listings than 2017.…


Join The Start / Stop Challenge

By Nicole | February 2, 2018

If we are connected on social media, you may have seen my post in January kicking this off. A friend of mine did this a few years ago, and I thought it was brilliant. Whether it’s New Years resolutions, or any other type of goal setting, it’s pretty typical to come up with a list…


Getting A Dog Was The Best Business Decision Ever

By Nicole | January 18, 2018

And it has nothing to do with meeting clients at the dog park. The truth is, I’m a scheduling disaster. I book all of my appointments mid day, thinking I’ll do my office work in the afternoon. Good in theory, but I work from home, so by mid afternoon the boys are there, and I’m…


It’s Been A While …

By Nicole | January 7, 2018

And I’ve missed you! I took a break from blogging for the second half of last year, and while it was exactly what I needed, I missed connecting with all of you. Thank you to everyone who reached out to say hello. I was feeling a little burnt out, and like I needed to honor…


Happy Summer!

By Nicole | July 14, 2017

Happy Friday! It’s the middle of July and you may have noticed that my weekly blog has been pretty sporadic for the last month. I’m still here. Although, I’m feeling the need to recharge a bit. I’ve got some new real estate projects that I’m working on, and I’m having a wonderful time soaking up…


Plan or Act, Which Comes First?

By Nicole | June 2, 2017

If it seems like a trick question – you’re right. The natural, logical, sensible answer is to plan fist, act second. After all, don’t they say that time spent planning can save you time and money down the road? In theory, the answer is yes, and if you are an international company looking to spend…


It’s Time To Break Up With Your Fuzzy Socks

By Nicole | May 18, 2017

Some agents are rocking and rolling right now. If that is you, know that I’m celebrating your success with you. However, I’ve talked with a lot of agents who are struggling. Whether it’s Buyers opting out of the market, or sellers who manage to sell their homes off market once they let people know that…


You Don’t Attract What You Want, You Attract What You Are

By Nicole | May 11, 2017

If you are anything like me, you have done more than a couple of goal setting exercises only to end up in the exact same spot as you were before. Frustrating! It wasn’t from a lack of effort, but something didn’t click, and while it may not have been an epic failure, it wasn’t exactly…


Beware The Marketing Plan

By Nicole | May 5, 2017

The subject of marketing plans came up this week, which is always an interesting topic. Interesting because we all know that we need one, but when it comes down to it, rarely do I find an agent who is confident in their plan. As a result, it’s easy to go with the shotgun, more is…


12 Success Secrets From The Seahawks

By Nicole | April 28, 2017

The NFL draft started yesterday. They trades their first round draft pick to have more picks in the 2nd and 3rd round. Why did they do this? Because it’s part of their strategy. Just like the Seahawks, you need a strategy for your business to be successful. This week, since I’ve got football on the…


Stake Your Claim, Ask For What You Want

By Nicole | April 22, 2017

Are you a specialist or a generalist? It’s an age old question and highly debated. Do you focus on one specific area of the real estate market, or do you do anything and everything? It’s a topic that came up the other day with a friend  who runs a highly successful staffing company for Microsoft…


How Well Do You Roll With It?

By Nicole | April 6, 2017

It’s the first week of the month, which means it’s time to break out the calculator. 3 months down, 9 to go, $X earned and $Y left means you need to make what amount a month to reach your goal? Every 30 days the calculation gets redone, and each time you ask – are you…


You Told Your Clients To Do What?

By Nicole | March 31, 2017

This was a busy week with 2 listings selling in multiple offers. When I called one of the agents to congratulate her buyers on being the winning bid, her response was, “Hurray, now I want to throw up”. Not the usual response, but I get it. Buyers are doing a lot right now to win.…


How and When To Talk About Yourself

By Nicole | March 16, 2017

You’re meeting with a new buyer or seller and it’s the point in the conversation when you need to talk about yourself. Maybe that’s your favorite part. But for many, especially if you are introvert, the thought of “selling yourself” is enough to make you reconsider your decision to be a real estate agent. It’s…


When Envy Is Good

By Nicole | March 10, 2017

Ever heard the term Green with Envy? We talk about envy like it’s a bad thing, but channeled correctly, it can be a great benefit. Growth is about experiencing new things, but to experience them, you first need to know about them and think “that sounds like fun I’d like to do / be /…


Are You Giving Resistance Too Much Credit?

By Nicole | March 3, 2017

  Steven Pressfield defines resistance in his book War of Art as the thoughts that tell you: you aren’t good enough, it’s been done before and therefore you can’t,  and who are you to dream this big? The trick with resistance, is that it can feel so real in the moment. Yet it’s just the mind…


Expectations vs Standards

By Nicole | February 16, 2017

Expectations vs Standards On the surface they seem so similar, and yet they are completely different. Expectations are your definition of how something should be. How a person should act. How something should work out. They require other people and situations to bend to your will in order for you to be happy. It’s a…


Counseling Buyers In A Multiple Offer Market

By Nicole | February 10, 2017

Is it just me, or is counseling your buyer on writing a winning offer a bit stressful? They want answers to things like “how high should I go” that you can’t answer. And price is just a portion of the conversation. That one seems easy compared to the waiving of contingencies that is going on…


There’s Enough For Everyone

By Nicole | February 3, 2017

It’s a busy market. Listings are scarce and buyers are competing on virtually any house they write an offer on. Depending on your outlook, things can seem a bit bleak. Like there isn’t enough to go around. Some agents are doing incredibly well, and others are feeling like they’re missing the boat. When that happens,…


Dealing With Uncertainty

By Nicole | January 19, 2017

Today is inauguration day. Donald Trump is officially the President of the United States. There is no way to know what will happen from here, but it seems fairly safe to say that today marks a turning point for America. History will look back on this Presidency as one that changed the course of many…
