If you have kids at home, the middle of August marks the transition from summer to back to school. Days are filled with tasks vs adventures. Translation – less days at the lake and more days at the dentist. It’s also a time when, at least for me, when my brain starts thinking more about…Read More >>
We’ve been in Cooperstown, New York for the last week while Ryan played a baseball tournament. We watched baseball, visited the Hall of Fame and checked out the beautiful countryside and small towns. The week has been filled with so many memories, one of which was Ryan hitting his first over the fence home run…Read More >>
“Choice is the greatest power in the Universe, and it’s all yours.”John Patrick Hickey Can you believe it’s August already? When I wrote about deciding what to press pause on this summer I hadn’t intended it to be the blog. Blame it on Mercury Retrograde, the baseball schedule, or who knows that else, but it’s…Read More >>
Today is the first official day of summer, and Ryan’s first day of vacation. Things feel different already. During the school year everything is pretty regimented. The schedule is dictated by external factors such as work, school, homework, sports, etc. Getting anything done is about “fitting it in” or “making it happen”. On the one…Read More >>
School vacation starts next week – are you ready? There are so many things to love about summer – the kids are around more, the days are longer and everything seems a little more laid back. It all sounds good right now, but sometimes the ‘vision’ of what summer vacation can be and the ‘reality’…Read More >>
This question has been coming up lately during the Seller Conversation class. Thanks to HGTV, everyone knows what staging is and the value it provides. But staging can mean anything from decluttering to a full house renovation, all in the name of helping the seller increase their sales price. My pre listing checklist has about…Read More >>
This has come up a lot lately, and I just got suckered into it myself. As an agent, you are a small business owner. You might work for a brokerage, but you are your own business entity with in that brokerage. You are responsible for your own marketing, financial planning, technology, etc. I still remember…Read More >>
We’ve all heard it before: Seek to add more in value than you receive in payment and you will always be successful. I’ve heard it, I get it, but I heard it again on a podcast this week and it was the mindset shift I needed. I’d like to think that I’m always focused on…Read More >>
This comes up a lot. Agents get stuck in the “get ready to get ready” phase of business. Thinking it has to be perfect, or that they have to be perfect in order to be successful. And so they spin in circles. Their marketing isn’t perfect. They need one more class before they can go…Read More >>
“Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.”Wayne Dyer Growth requires change. If you are going to sell more homes, you will need different systems than you currently have. In a perfect world you would set a goal, implement the systems to support it and then be off and…Read More >>
I taught a class on Whidbey Island yesterday – hence the picture above. I came across Deception Pass as the sun was setting, and it was so beautiful, I had to stop for a few moments to enjoy it. Inevitably the question of commissions came up. I’m all for everyone being able to charge whatever…Read More >>
I’m always amazed when a client starts a conversation with “I don’t want to bug you, but I had a question about …” If they are worried about asking questions because they don’t want to bother us, what is it that they aren’t asking? What are their concerns and pain points that they feel silly…Read More >>
The Seller said this …The Buyer said that …The inspector found …The lender did … If you’ve been in real estate a while, chances are you have stories that could make others cringe, laugh or cry. Sometimes all on the same transaction! We love to tell our stories. It proves our worth and shows how…Read More >>
Thank you for all the responses to last week’s post. I love hearing the metrics that others use to measure success. Increasing your price point vs volume definitely seemed to resonate. It goes without saying – I am grateful for every client at every price point. But if life is about going with intention, there…Read More >>
Last week we talked about your clients definition of success. This week it seems only fitting that we look at YOUR definition. The beauty of real estate is that you can create a business that fits with, and supports your life. The trick, though, is holding on to what you decided is the right goal…Read More >>
And other lessons learned while being snowed in… Today was Ryan’s fourth day without school this week. Tomorrow stars mid winter break, so he’s pretty much never going back to school. The first few days were great. We took the boys to the gym each day where they spent about 4 hours playing basketball and…Read More >>
Real Estate is a contact sport. In order to sell properties, you need to connect with others. It makes sense, but if you are an introvert, it may be enough to have you re-thinking your career choice. And yet, some of the most successful agents I know are introverts. Being an introvert actually gives you…Read More >>
I taught a class about working with Sellers the other day, and there were some great discussions. We focused on how to market properties and serve our clients when homes don’t sell in a weekend with multiple offers.

You’ve heard it before…Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans Rarely does a week go the way I thought it would. Each Monday I diligently map out my schedule, and then a client wants to list their house and we need to schedule the cleaner / stager / etc, a buyer…Read More >>
