"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 Are You Marketing Listings Differently?

By Nicole Mangina | July 31, 2020

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…


Helping Buyers Find ‘Deals’ In Todays Market

By Nicole Mangina | July 24, 2020

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…


Notes From My Gratitude Journal

By Nicole Mangina | July 16, 2020

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…


Asking For Help Makes You A Better Agent

By Nicole Mangina | July 10, 2020

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.…


More Lessons From the Pelaton

By Nicole Mangina | July 3, 2020

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. I don’t know about you, but it seems like each time I wrap my head around one series of events, something new happens. It’s nuts out there. Thank goodness…


Your Ideal Client and Knowing When to Refer

By Nicole Mangina | May 29, 2020

This has come up twice in the last few weeks so it feels like it’s worth revisiting. We all have those moments: Maybe you’ve been super slow and are feeling like you would take any client that comes your way, just so that you can have something to do, and hopefully make some money. Or…


Awareness + Action, The Ultimate Combo For Your Next Phase

By Nicole Mangina | May 8, 2020

One of the blessings from all of this is space. As our schedules lightened up, it provided the space to be present in daily life, and the option to do things differently. We are often busy going through the motions of life to “just get it done”. There isn’t an opportunity for the awareness of…


True Confessions About Consistency

By Nicole Mangina | April 23, 2020

When they closed gyms back in March I panicked and ordered a Peloton. I’ve wanted one for a while, and this was the nudge I needed. There are lots of things I love about the bike – the classes, how easy it is to get in a great workout, and the tracking. If there was…


Stats vs Emotions, There’s a Time and Place For Both

By Nicole Mangina | April 17, 2020

Emotions are running at an all time high right now. We have all been profoundly affected in one way or another with what is going on. It takes daily, intentional effort not to get caught up in the doom and gloom. It’s easy to feel like the world is at a standstill as we all…


How Do You Plan For The Worst While Trying To Manifest The Best?

By Nicole Mangina | April 10, 2020

I’ve been thinking about this lot lately. I mentioned it in last week’s post too, but this is feeling a lot like 2008. Meaning sales are still happening, but not as many. My personal thought is that we need to be prepared for 4-6 months of minimal income. Even if the stay in place order…


Changing Strategies and Other Puzzle Lessons

By Nicole Mangina | April 3, 2020

With the stay in place order extended to May 4th and a shift in how we are supposed to conduct real estate, things are definitely different. Your typical market strategy for April and May may not work right now. How do you shift gears with our new (hopefully temporary) normal? Here’s some puzzle wisdom that…


The Process vs The Event, Making Them Both Count

By Nicole Mangina | March 27, 2020

With the shelter in place order that came out this week, chances are you’ve got some extra time in your schedule. It’s a perfect time to work on your business, since we can’t really work in it right now. The “Disney experience” is legendary and serves as a model for many businesses. When we were…


Structure + Phone = Sanity & Sales

By Nicole Mangina | March 21, 2020

This has been our first full week of everyone at home and it’s been an interesting one. 2 factors seem to be in play. The first is feeling disconnected to the rest of the world. The second is that all of our structure evaporated overnight. The being at home part is actually going great. Yes,…


When It Feels Like A Snow Day, But Isn’t

By Nicole Mangina | March 13, 2020

That escalated quickly! We went from wash your hands to schools are closed for 6 weeks and we are all supposed to work from home and avoid social situations. You know things are getting serious when Disneyland closes! It will be interesting to see how this all turns out. I am incredibly grateful right now…


Don’t Worry About Other People’s Busy Or That You’re Missing The Market

By Nicole Mangina | February 28, 2020

You’ve heard the phrase before – You do You. It sounds good, but sometimes it’s easier said than done. Like right now. Everyone is talking about how busy the market is. It’s in the news, clients are talking about it. If you ask an agent how they are doing, they will likely answer “crazy busy”.…


Positioning vs Presenting Your Offer

By Nicole Mangina | February 14, 2020

Review dates are back. It’s time for Buyers to bring their A game. When it’s just your offer it’s about presenting your Buyer in the best way possible. When there are multiples, it’s more about positioning your client and their offer relative to everyone else’s. Price matters, but when there are multiple offers – the…


How Can You Add Value Today?

By Nicole Mangina | February 7, 2020

The great Zig Ziglar said: “You can have anything in life you want, if you help other people get what they want.” Make this your mantra today and every day. It goes back to last week’s post about the book Simply Said and focusing on the outcome you want for the other person more than…


My New Favorite Book – Simply Said

By Nicole Mangina | January 31, 2020

Part of my focus for this year is to read more. By the way, I’m loving getting library books on my Kindle. It’s super easy and keeps me motivated to finish the book because I only have access to it for a limited time. A quick read that everyone can benefit from is Simply Said…


5 Tips To Make Ninja, Or Any Plan Easier To Implement

By Nicole Mangina | January 24, 2020

Last week, or actually 2 weeks ago (I skipped last week because of the snow) we talked about having a plan going into the New Year. Getting a plan is the first step, implementing it is another thing all together. Here are 5 tips to help you get the most out of your plan: Go…


Find A Plan – Work The Plan

By Nicole Mangina | January 9, 2020

It’s the first work week of 2020. Are you crushing it? In my perfect world, I would put all of my sales for the next 12 months into escrow right now. All with 30 days closes, and then I’d spend the rest of the year on a beach somewhere soaking up the sun. The reality…
