"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.

I was blown away, and honored by the response to my email about hiring a few agents to help them grow their businesses. Thank you to everyone who reached out. I wish I had the capacity to take everyone on. Here’s what I learned from talking to everyone: Many of you don’t have a database,…Read More >>
The one universal “to do” on every agent’s list is their database. Many agent’s end up in a state of analysis paralysis about which program to use, how to get people in there, and what to do once you’ve got them there. Here’s a quick and dirty over view; Your database will never be perfect. It’s…Read More >>
Can you feel it? Fall is coming, and the energy is building. This is your chance to take one last deep breath before kicking things into high gear. Rest is just as important as work. So take advantage of the long weekend. Do something fun, just for you. To your success! NicoleRead More >>
I don’t read many business books. I know that I’m “supposed” to, but the reality is that most of them put me to sleep. Or they sound good, but the real life translation isn’t clear or easy to implement. But a few weeks ago I picked up Grit, by Angela Duckworth and couldn’t put it down. It’s…Read More >>
Is it just me, or are these last 2 weeks of August a little weird? I’m stuck in limbo between vacation and back to school, and my abilities to juggle it all are starting to slip. Hence the reason you are getting this on Saturday vs Friday. On the one hand I’m having a blast…Read More >>
This is a follow up to last week’s post about what to do when it feels like nothing is working. New agents tend to have a different issue: who do they call, and what on earth do they say? Even if you have a big sphere, it can feel weird to suddenly start talking about real…Read More >>
Ever experience this? Why is it that sometimes clients seem to show up without us doing anything, and other times we doing everything right, and yet, the phone isn’t ringing? Ever feel like it’s working for everyone else, but not for you? I can’t tell you how many meetings I have been in with agents…Read More >>
It’s such an odd question. After all, aren’t all clients good ones? Some are more difficult than others, but as long as you get paid, it’s all good. Right? At the beginning of my career I was right there with everyone else. I would work with anyone hoping that it would turn into a commission…Read More >>
Maybe you’re new, or it’s been a while since you sold a house, or the price point intimidates you. Whatever it is, you are about to meet with your clients and you are not feeling it. You’re knees are shaking and you are the furthest thing from confident. All you can think of is the…Read More >>
You’re selling houses right and left. It feels good to be busy. Yet, in the midst of it all, the voice in the back of your head wonders when the steak will end? Is it only a matter of time before the wheels come off, the phone calls dry up, and you are left wondering…Read More >>
Each week I send out business tips that come from my own experiences and conversations with others. Today, I’d love to hear from you. What do you need help with? What are your stumbling blocks? What is that one thing that if you could just figure it out would make the biggest difference in your…Read More >>
[field name=youtube-video] Consistency is essential. We talk about it with marketing, phone calls, etc, but how about when you show up for an appointment? Are you consistent? Are you ready when your clients say yes? I recently asked a group of agents what they bring to a listing appointment. They talked about various marketing and…Read More >>
You got a new referral! You chatted on the phone, had your first meeting, everything was going great and then – nothing. Emails, cards, phone calls, none of it is getting a response. Urg! Did they find another agent? Did you do something? Did they decide not to buy or sell after all? This is undoubtably…Read More >>
2 weeks ago my Dad and I were out running errands, and stopped by a jeweler for help with a repair. At the first jewelry store, we had barely finished our question, and the gal said “we can’t help you with that”. It felt like maybe she was jumping to conclusions, or didn’t really understanding…Read More >>

Less than 30% of agents have a database. Yet studies consistently show that agents who have one, and actively stay in touch with their clients make twice as much as than those who don’t. Seriously? It might seem crazy, but it’s true. I’ve always thought that was such a fascinating statistic. After all, your database…Read More >>
The days are getting longer, which means there is more time to get things done. Right? If that’s the case, then why is your to do list, not getting any shorter? Part of life is coming to terms with the fact that you’re never going to get it all done. It’s about getting the right…Read More >>
It’s 3 am and you just realized that you forgot to call a client. You just blew it. As the pit in your stomach forms, your mind spins out of control wondering if there is any way to salvage the relationship. Or maybe… Your listing isn’t selling. Secretly you know you overpriced it, and caved…Read More >>
It’s been a hot topic lately. In the mentorship group this week everyone expressed some level of frustration and downright anger at the market right now. Dealing with appraisers and low appraisals, multiple offers, clients who have lost several times, the hectic pace, etc. It’s wearing agents down, making them cranky, and affecting their business.…Read More >>
As I review my 1st quarter business it reminds me of the power of accountability, and spending 30 minutes a day focused on lead generation. It is truly mind blowing. In January, while I was laid up after my foot surgery I generated 4 new listings and several new buyers. That has turned into 9…Read More >>
