I had the privilege of traveling to one of my favorite places this past week.  Its not the Caribbean nor a big city full of excitement.  Its a simple, calm, peaceful retreat.  There is no boardwalk for people to overtake.  There are gift shops but only a few.    No amusement park, nor Broadway sh...
It is unbelievable how many companies want a share of your hard work. From the Internet, television, newspapers, to bulletin boards; they want you to buy the best of the best.  They will "make your sales soar" the say.  I find more and more that the only way my business is going to soar is if I ...
I am curious to know around the country how many are getting phone inquiries and how often.  In my office we split our time to share the responsibility of answering phones with the idea of getting the opportunity to help people list and buy homes.    More and more I am finding more luck with my p...

 The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. "Hello?"    'Is your daddy home?' he asked. "Yes", whispered the smal...
Think about it... On a regular basis we spread the word that we are inviting strangers into a home that probably will be empty and we will be alone there for awhile.  What is wrong with that picture???  It amazes me how many agents advertise their open houses and sit them alone with no back up pl...
