Everyday you are faced with unknown opportunities. Some will be obvious and others will be hidden or disguised.  How do you react to the opportunities that are obvious?

I have many people ask me how do you know when it is time to start a team?  To be honest, if you haven't hired an adminstrative assistant yet, it's not time to start a time.  So the next question is naturally, When do I know it is time to hire an assistant?  That is an easy answer.  When do you k...
Lead Generating must be systematic.  You have to stay in front of your sphere on a regular basis.  If you don't your mother, best friend or next door neighbor will forget what you do.  You make think I am exagerating but would you want to bet your career on it?  In the Millionaire Real Estate Age...

But once I understood what blooging is and how easy it is to do it and that it is FREE!,  I decided to get all over it.  I have met many agents that swear about the leads and referrals they get through blogging.  I think blogging is awesome and obviously a no brainer...
What has happened to customer service?  Does it exist any more?  When was the last time you went to the customer service desk at Wal-Mart and had to wait in line for 20 minutes just to be greeted by a very unthusiastic clerk, carrying on a conversation with another clerk about when their next bre...
I am a firm believer in the relationship between your mindset and your success in whatever you want to accomplish.  As the Team Leader for Keller Williams Realty in Sugar Land, Texas, many people ask me, "How can I be successful in real estate?"  I tell them that it is helpful to have a database,...
