Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend! We are just chilling and getting organized for our upcoming trip to Colombia. Probably go see a movie later. Love relaxing days like this.
Funny, one of my friends asked me recently why I just concentrate on listings. I think for a reason that is a concern for all real estate agents.
You see, I was in real estate working with anyone that walked through the door for about 10 years. And then I received one of the worst phone calls someone can have. My partner of 15 years had brain cancer.
I was devastated.
In and out of comas, the prognosis wasn’t good. Hooked up to dialysis machines with failing kidneys, unconscious for 3 weeks, it was just heartbreaking. After a year in the hospital, a year that I don’t remember because I was catatonic most of the time, he finally finished chemo and all the operations and treatments and was on the mend.
And after 5 years is in remission, he is healthier than a horse! We are so blessed.
And you know one of the things I learned?
I learned so many things about worry, stress and living. But the one thing I decided to do was to concentrate only on listings in my business.
I wanted to be an Epic listing agent.
Because I believe we all have a never ending nagging feeling about income inconsistency and security.
And working a listing business is a better way to have a more consistent and secure income. You’re always part of the deal. And it seems it’s less work than working with a buyer.
So consider concentrating more on listings this year, in your marketing and in your prospecting. It will afford you a better lifestyle and a more consistent and secure income for you and your family.
