It’s exhausting to live the life of someone you are not! Yet, many of us do this for the purpose of “furthering a career” or “keeping up with the Joneses” or to “belong” to a group hoping to gain fame and fortune by osmosis. Guess what? I believe you already have everything you need to be famous ...

We Realtors rely on each other to successfully sell and close home sales. Our “jobs” are multifaceted, and I sometimes think that some Agents and Principal Brokers lose proper perspective – They develop amnesia – lose sight of the forest for the trees. We confuse the difference of winning battles...

@ 3:30 this morning . . .The dogs and I heard a tree breaking in the woods above the house, but there was no “THUD” of tree hitting the ground – A little unsettling. This is one of those “waiting for the other shoe drop” scenarios . . . and a feeling that we all are experiencing day in and day ou...

We are ALL “in sales”! Of course, there will be people who disagree because – well – perhaps they consider themselves to be “above” the status of “sales person”. They prefer other, more prestigious titles like “Professional” or “Esquire” or “Doctor” or “Artist” . . . Regardless of title and/or qu...

This is the philosophical “less is more” Try saying fewer words to communicate more effectively. Have you noticed that, when you struggle against the challenge of the day, things actually get WORSE? When something isn’t coming together as you think it should, practice letting go of the things you...

Do you remember the days . . . of home Buyers and Sellers coming to agreement and, together with Lenders and Realtors, coordinate a smooth transaction with minimal “outside interference’? This is not say that everything was hunky-dory (Utopian) absent any conflict, but most of the complications w...

We are all at a fork in our path! As Yogi Bera so astutely said: “When you come to a fork in the road – Take it!“ This is the first choice . . . the choice to continue FORWARD. Of course, there are 2 other options: STOP right HERE and freeze with analysis paralysis (FEAR), or go back from whence ...

Joining the flock seems to be safe in unusual environs. There’s a tendency to relegate individuality to blending into the midst of the mass of sheeple . . . hoping not to be noticed and singled out. Dare you to be different than the others? What if you’re WRONG? What will other people think? What...

Every day, the world opens a tad bigger for all of us . . . as we venture beyond the confines of our abodes. It seems that every conversation reveals more freedom, and there’s more “pep in the steps” for those who’ve just had their first post-quarantine restaurant dine in experience (I had mine l...

Putting a Band-aid on a Compound FractureThe lead story in The New York Times “Friday Briefing” REALLY got my attention this morning. There is NOTHING partisan about this . . .
