What If You Planned Your Fun First?

As we roll into the holidays and the new year, it’s a good time to chat about time and how we do our planning. Some holiday seasons I treasure. They are filled with special moments, deep connection and a whole lot of gratitude. Others are a whirlwind and 1/2 way through I realize I’m just…

What It Truly Means to Lead Your Clients

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. We are meant to lead our clients through the process, but what does that mean? Does it mean we make all of the decisions and are solely responsible for the results? Are our clients supposed to fall in line and follow us, no matter what? Because after…

I Would Take Time Off But…

I’m too busy and I can’t leave my clients. Or. I’m slow, I can’t afford to take time off. It’s the age old question of real estate. What comes first, the vacation or the transaction? I’ve talked to a lot of agents lately that really want a vacation, but feel like they are too busy.…
