Real Estate Agents who struggle, or find themselves discouraged, tend to seek psychological reasons for why things are not going well - #8WeekSuccess - whereas those who are converting deals keep “asking for business” and do not get too worked up when they hear No. This second group, about 20% of all agents, knows that you have to hit your targets of how many calls and conversations you have to make each day; then they rinse and repeat...

Your Real Estate Business is a Reflection of Who you are

Posted by Key Yessaad on June 18, 2013 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Michael Gerber harshly and correctly makes this statement in his book The E-Myth Revisited: ‘Your Business is nothing more than a distinct reflection of who you are. If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your employees will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.’

Posted by Key Yessaad on January 27, 2013 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The Business of Real Estate is Local, has been Local, and will continue to be Local for the foreseeable future; maybe we need to stop thinking we know everything about our local area and try re-discovering it. Many divorces occur because one spouse assumes they know the other spouse well enough and stop seeing them in a new light. So, what if we stopped going to work the same efficient direct way and started driving longer ways through neighborhoods we thought we knew? W...

Are you processing your To-Do List through the prism of your Emotions?

Posted by Key Yessaad on January 23, 2013 at 7:20 AM Comments comments (0)
