If your week isn't amazing, who do you have to blame?  I am tired of the prevelant pass-the-buck menatlity that seems to be within easy grasp of so many people currently.  I have often said that I avoid the media and their negativity.  The minute you take responsibility for everything that occurs in your week, you have taken the power to make real change.If you haven't read "The Strangest Secret" from Simple Truths you really need to make it a priority for 2008!  It is available with a CD and I keep it in my car and listen to at least a portion of it every day!  The message is simple, you must control your thinking!  Imagine the world we could live in if more people understood and embraced this!There are great things ahead for all of us! Stop blaming and start accepting your reality!  R...

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much , and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to li...

Now people, I write frequently about how you have to take control of your own future and the power that your mind has to make the things you want into a reality!  Well, this is my end-of-year post for 2008!  That's right, I can see clearly the year that most of you are still trying to get right on your checks.  I have this incredible ability because of a masterful book "The Strangest Secret" published by a great company Simple Truths.  While it is a short read, there is a CD available, which I listen to in the car constantly.  This work of Earl Nightingale, literally changed my life over the last 12 months and I am giving you the opportunity, through your embrace of this message, to change your over the next 12.  It's a simple principle, but I believe you need the book/CD to keep the me...

 As I have said in other posts, I NEVER am not wearing clothing that is branded.  Yesterday, I was doing some shopping and I had two people in a matter of minutes ask me about "the market."  In both cases these people were sellers who felt depressed becasue their homes haven't sold.  When I gave them my standard, "Business is great!  The market is great!" response to their questions about "the market," they were perplexed.  As they each told me their tales of woe, I explained that WE are the market!  If your home is priced right and marketed well, it should be sold.  It's simple.  There isn't any magic.  It takes POSITIVITY to sell Real Estate.  As sellers, they needed to have their expectations managed by their professional REALTOR and they needed to take some responsibility for their ...

Now, I know that we are all already consumed by the phenom that is "THE SECRET," but I think that too many of us have lost sight of the message by getting caught up in the packaging.  Every few years there is some monumental "discovery" and everyone reads it, watches it, gets on board.  Then slowly, as time goes on it fades away and we all sit around waiting for the big thing.  At the root of all of these is the SIMPLE TRUTH that we control our own destiny.  We create our own good fortune.  We are the catalyst that makes our lives what they are and will be in the future.  It doesn't make a difference if you stumble across this fact while walking on fire with Tony Robbins, seated at Lakewood with Joel Osteen preaching, listening to Zig in your car, or watching an Austalian made DVD.  Foc...

It's Thursday night...do you have your weekend game plan right?  We have found that open houses in Del Webb Sun City Huntley are a great way to generate opportunities to meet buyers.  Now, have I sold a house that I am sitting?...well, no.  However, I have met many people and converted some to customers and a couple to clients.  I do sell houses at open houses!  The industry is full of speculation on the end of the open house.  I simply can't agree.  My experience has taught me otherwise!  Marketing is the new king of Real Estate.  Do you know how to market a house?  Well, I blog, I email, I do direct mail, I do print advertising and I do open houses!  In addition I talk to everyone I meet.  Do you listen?  Do you have a plan?  Does everyone you meet know what listings you are currently...

I have to preface this by saying that I do not buy the slow market garbage that the mainstream media shovels out everyday!  We are the market people!  My business is going and growing GREAT!  If a home is priced right and marketed well, it will sell!That having been said, let me speak to an odd mentality that seems to be invading sellers in a certain situation, at least here in my local market.  This phenomenon is based in sellers who have built a new home, but have been unable to sell their current home.  I can not tell you how many times I have seen this in just the last few weeks.  They actually list their new house and keep their current home on the market!  This post was based on another I had made today in response to an agent who is having some difficulty selling her own home.  I...

I am taking this opportunity to let everyone know what a GREAT week I have had!  If the market is slow in your area, stop talking about it!  A positive attitude wins every time!  I have had 4 deals this week and I am working on my fifth right now!  I'm not buying the "bad market" story that so many agents are crying about!  It is what you make it!  I LOVE my client's!  I set very clear expectations of what it will take to get their home SOLD!  We set a strategy of timed, price reductions from the start so that there are no surprises and everything runs smoothly!  If you aren't setting VERY clear expectations with your client's, you will reap what you sow!  The agents who are all smiles and take over-priced listings drive me CRAZY!  That's what sends people into a fury about our industry...
