selling real estate in fort wayne: You get out of real estate what you put in to real estate. - 12/08/13 09:39 AM
Coaching is in my blood.  
My father was an instructor in the military.  My mom was a swimming coach and a teacher.  My brother is a division 1 college coach.  My other brothers coached high school.  My sisters both coached singing and directed plays.  
Like I said, it's in my blood.
Over the last year or so, I decided to not only sell real estate in Fort Wayne, but to "coach" a few new agents.  
I now have half a head full of gray hair, but at least I have hair.
It was a lot of fun to … (7 comments)

selling real estate in fort wayne: There Is More Than One Way To Succeed At Real Estate. (Gasp!!!) - 09/06/12 05:50 AM
One of the things I love MOST about selling real estate is that (believe it or not) there are MANY different ways to succeed, and MANY different ways to do things.  
I know, I know, there are many real estate gurus and type A personalities that will tell you that THEIR way is the right way, and what you are doing is wrong.  I've heard and read that way too many times.  Heck, I've said it a few times.  
But here is the reality.  Real estate is such a wide open game.  It's a local game.  It's an individual … (51 comments)

selling real estate in fort wayne: Did The Listing Agent Just Hurt Seller #1? - 03/11/12 07:05 AM

 
There is a local agent that does the same thing every time we show one of his listings.  (And usually within MINUTES of setting up the showing.)

Agent XYZ:  "Hey Jared.  Agent XYZ here.  Listen...  I saw that you are showing my listing over there on 123 Main St.  Well here's the deal.  I have another listing over at 127 Main St. that is similar in size and just a few houses down.  I really think that you should go ahead and show that one as well.  What do you say??"
 
Me:  "Well Agent XYZ...  I'm very … (73 comments)

selling real estate in fort wayne: Knock Knock. Who's There? NOT ME! - 03/06/12 07:12 AM

 
I just read a blog over on Trulia where a Realtor was excited to start door knocking for business again.  He said he hadn't done it in over five years, but was anxious to get out there and get to work!  
I cringed.  
If I'm sitting in my dining room having dinner with my lovely bride, and I see somebody approaching my door...  I know this person is either:
1.  Selling something.  
2.  Selling something.  
Nobody has ever knocked on my front door to say hi, to introduce themselves, or to give me money.  I … (24 comments)

selling real estate in fort wayne: My Phone Isn't Ringing. Whatever Shall I Do?? - 12/18/11 11:05 AM

 
Last week I went to our company Christmas party.  I'm not a huge fan of these gatherings, but my Broker told me there would be beer and bacon, so I went.  
The food was fantastic! 
After listening to some "Holy crap I am such an awesome Realtor" stories from a few in the "Loud" group, we all wandered into the living room for some Christmas games (and another beer).  
I got to sit next to "Tommy".  Tommy was a decent producer a few years ago, so I just assumed that he was having another pretty good year. … (51 comments)
