Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-The Five "Ws"-How to Get a New Client to Talk!
 
I was reading a post by Liz Lockhart..... and it prompted me to think about some old journalism/ interviewer tricks to get a good conversation going with a client.

Open-ended questions are what gives the conversation some flow...giving you somewhere to GO in finding out what a client's wishlist is, what their expectations are, their passions, their deal-breakers.
Who, what, where, why and when are the five "Ws" that cause a person you're speaking with to answer in more than just one word sentences, offering you … (14 comments)

childhood memories: Need a gift idea for your kids or grand-kids? - 02/12/14 02:16 PM

How about a great childhood?? 
This was such a perfect idea, thank you, Paul. One that I truly enjoy offering to my clients, whether they have children or grandchildren. It is an opportunity that makes me happiest when I know that I can be a vessel for showing kids the way to Mother Nature at Fishhawk Lake. Memories that can shape a human far into the future and for generations to come.
Be sure and leave your heartfelt comments on Paul's blog....he deserves it!

 You had to get on a boat … (28 comments)

childhood memories: Fishhawk Lake-Roxy's Adventure - 06/23/12 07:19 PM
Roxy’s adventure!
 
Here I was taking a moment out from a very busy day, to sit and watch the lake for a few precious moments. There were kids playing in the water at the beach by the clubhouse at Fishhawk Lake and their happy voices were traveling across the lake.
 
 
 
Then I hear in excitable tones, “Roxy!, Roxy, come HERE!!” voiced by one of the little bathing suit cuties, as she ran across the clubhouse steps. Well, Roxy, a mongrel-type, small but VERY FAST female, went racing across the open grounds, almost to say, “Free, at … (12 comments)
