I heard this the other day and it was one of those “Now I get it” moments of awareness. A slight shift in perspective that felt obvious and new all at the same time. We see people who are great at what they do and forget that we are seeing the end result. The houses…Read More >>
Valentines Day is Sunday so this weeks post is all about “loving on your clients” as the great Terri Johnson would say. All good relationships start with communication. It’s free, it makes a huge impact, and it’s often the one thing we forget to do. Or don’t do enough of. We get so busy working…Read More >>
The question has been coming lately – how much do you tell buyers in the first meeting about the state of the market? In today’s world of multiple offers, escalation clauses and waived contingencies, it’s a lot to absorb for any buyer, especially a first time buyer. There is the concern that you might scare…Read More >>

I love the reset that comes with the New Year. Whether you call them resolutions or goals, it’s the perfect time to evaluate life and business so that you can move forward with intention. This typically involves creating a long list of I Wish and I Should. I wish to make more money … I…Read More >>
Welcome to 2021! There were many things I enjoyed about 2020 (crazy virus aside), but I always look forward to a New Year with joy and anticipation. In keeping with the crazy year that 2020 was, it wrapped up with some powerful lessons in a really odd package. Many of you saw my post on…Read More >>
This holiday season may not be filled with exotic travel like years past, but it’s still a time to relax and take a step back from work. Yet, I’ve talked to several agents this week whose phones keep on ringing. Which can create some inner conflict. How do you take your planned, and much needed…Read More >>
In last week’s post I talked about life and real estate being a contact sport. Meaning, success comes from connecting with others. Then I was in a class where the instructor talked about the value of colliding. Essentially being in contact with others. It’s value shows up in lots of different ways: Being at the…Read More >>
It’s the first week of December, and every December I vacillate between finishing the year strong with work, and relaxing into a month-long haze of holiday lights, hot chocolate, and cookie baking. It’s usually a combination of the two. Whether you view December as a work month or a chance for some time off, these…Read More >>
With online school comes daily runs to Chipotle and Chick Fil A for lunch. I’ve rationalized it that it’s a chance for Alex and Ryan to get out of their rooms and spend a few minutes together each day. Usually Alex drives them, but I picked some up, via the drive through, the other day…Read More >>
Wait? We are self employed and commission based. Isn’t that the definition of – we are always the right person for the job? If you are operating from fear, yes. But if you are operating from a place of abundance and well versed in the 80 / 20 rule, the answer is no. Some things…Read More >>
Whew! Being a buyer in this market is not for the faint of heart. Multiple offers, quick turn around times, waived contingencies. It can be a little nutty. It’s also an amazing time for you to guide your clients and really shine as an agent. Your clients need you now more than ever. For market…Read More >>
It’s all about the morning routine. All coaching seems to start with it. The idea is that there is value in doing certain things each morning: affirmations, reading something inspirational, working out, etc. The exact formula may vary, but the focus is to create a positive direction for the day. Admiral McRaven famously talked about…Read More >>
In real estate we assume that our value comes from our ability to control the process, and therefore the outcome in a transaction. In a year of curve balls though, it’s difficult to feel like we can control much of anything. Lacking control isn’t a new thing, but it’s coming up in new ways this…Read More >>
Can you feel it? Summer is winding down and we are shifting into back to school mode. Or some version of it. I always look forward to this time of year. It feels like a reset after the summer and a welcome return to a routine. I must admit that I’m feeling much better this…Read More >>
Effective property marketing is about more than bedrooms and baths. Part of our job is to paint the picture of the lifestyle that goes with a property. That could be the community, the view, and how we use the space. With all of the changes these last few months many of us are using our…Read More >>
In fast moving markets like this where everything seems to be selling with multiple offers and over the asking price, it can be tricky for Buyers to get on board. If you have Buyers struggling with the market, concerned that they aren’t getting a good ‘deal’ on a house, it might be time to redefine…Read More >>
My guest for The 425 Show had to reschedule at the last minute this week. It’s a pretty rare occurrence, but when it does, the debate is always – to replay an episode or hop on the air and go solo. As comfortable as I’ve gotten doing the show, it’s a whole different feeling when…Read More >>
It’s easy to confuse “being the expert” with “having all of the answers”. Yesterday I taught a class on working with Buyers to mostly new agents. Something that always comes up is: What is your value proposition when you are new? It’s a fair question, but one that we give far too much weight to.…Read More >>
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, months really. With everything that is going on, I took some time off from blogging to process it all.
