Don’t Over Think It!
Last week while I was in Hawaii with my family I had the great opportunity to teach a class to some amazing Realtors in the area. The official topic for the day was:
Easy ways to leverage what you are already doing to get better results and have clients that love you.
As we went through the class and started delving into the various topics the theme for the day quickly became …
Don’t over think it
~ Make the call to your client to say hello and get caught up. There is not a magic phrase that if delivered correctly will turn into oddles of instant business so stop stessing, just be yourself and enjoy getting caught up with someone that you care about.
~ I have been mailing to my clients on a monthly basis for 12 years and EVERY mailing that I have ever sent out has a mistake in it. Yes, I proof read them and get them as close to perfect as I can before sending them to the printer but inevitably when I get them back there is something I missed or something about the format that I wish was different. I send them anyway.
~ Don’t get too caught up in connecting the dots in terms of basing who you stay in touch with on how much business you think that they will send you. This is one of those crazy laws of the Universe that just is what it is. All I know is that you have to give in order to recieve so make your day about truly building connections with people that you care about and the business will come in. It may be a crooked line in terms of how it gets to you, but it will be there.
So stop with the analysis paralysis and just move forward. So many people do NOTHING, so the fact that you did SOMETHING means that your miles ahead of the rest. And keep a sense of humor about the mistakes. Everyone else makes them too so when they see you make one chances are they are not thinking about how ridiculous it is that you made a mistake, but feeling completely relieved that they are not the only ones. 😉

I posted a reel on instagram this week that got a surprising amount of feedback. Surprising in how grateful people were to finally have someone admit the truth. You don’t have to be part of the 5am club to be successful. Did your shoulders relax just a little when you read that? I hope so.…Read More
You know those agents – the lucky ones whose clients magically show up, and they always seem to be having fun while posting sales and having a life. The type of agent you wish you could be – someday. What if YOU could be that person right now?? On the outside, luck can look like…Read More
This is your reminder to keep going and trust that things will work. It’s easy to be impatient and want to know how the story ends. Because if we know that, then we can get there faster and avoid making mistakes along the way. But that’s not how it works. And sometimes the mistakes are…Read More
This is one of the biggest things most agents are missing in their business. But if you’ve ever been a part of a great mastermind and have a solid tribe you know that it’s one of THE best things not only for your business, but for your soul. We aren’t meant to do this alone.…Read More
I was chatting with someone this week who mentioned that they were spending this week journaling, planning and deciding what they want to create in 2024. Sounds awesome! But their last comment got me – I know I should have done this sooner, but… Sooner says who? It got me thinking about all of the…Read More
Ideally it’s both. But somewhere between the joy of dreaming into new goals, and attaching metrics (ie the how) things can go from creative to confining. In the ‘what if’ space – it’s easy to be creative. At this point the possibilities are endless. There is no right or wrong, pass or fail. Actions and…Read More
As we head into the last 2 weeks of the year Grace and Light are the 2 words that keep coming up. Whether this is your favorite time of the year, or one that you would be just as happy to skip – it’s a lot. It can be an intense time of celebration, reflection,…Read More
Seems like a simple question. Of course the reflex answer is yes. I can absolutely have anything I want. But deep down do you believe it? I just came back from a few days of business planning with 3 amazing agents. When we get together we go deep. It’s WAY beyond what we want our…Read More
Today is December 1st. Which means 2024 is right around the corner. No sooner do we finish celebrating the accomplishments from this year – we reset the counters to zero and look to create something new. We list our goals, envision our future and formulate action plans. All necessary parts of the process. But what…Read More
I’m over here at my Dad’s still this week. I’ll be here for a total of 11 days. I love the time with him, but his internet is the WORST. I’m actually using my phone as a hot spot to write this post because the internet is so unstable. I’m all for taking time to…Read More
