realtor tip: Links You can Use: MARKETPLACE- More Exposure For Your Listings - 03/28/14 09:32 AM
 
My previous post on Links you can use in the Real Estate Biz focused on town information ( http://activerain.com/blogsview/4357368/the-answers-to-the-questions-your-clients-ask-that-you-cant-answer ).
Today's post is another way to market your listings.
FACEBOOK,
That's correct Facebook... 
Not on your wall, not in a group, but in a little place tucked behind your wall called marketplace. Take a look at www.facebook.com/marketplace you can sell anything there. It certainly can not hurt to get a little more exposure for your sellers!
I do think you should still look into groups as well.
I always use groups- for me: Woman's Council of Realtors, Ocean County Realtors, Jersey Shore … (9 comments)

realtor tip: Fall In Love With Your Career! - 03/20/14 12:58 PM
 


In "Selling 101" by Zig Ziglar, Zig opens the book by telling us to get out of the business of sales.
WHAT?
He says that too many people get into sales hoping to make some extra money and help a few people along the way. And, those people are in it for the WRONG reasons. He says those of us in sales need to be here because our heart and our head won't allow us to do anything else!
 
This is not just for sales positions, but any career path:
Why do you do what you … (2 comments)

"After all is said and done, more is said than done." --Aesop
 
Business Tip of The Week
..."Touch it once" is a time-tested time management strategy. Act on an item the moment you touch it, instead of going back to it again and again before actually completing it.

When the “poop hits the fan” how do you react? Don’t kid yourself- It is going to happen, the world is FAR from a perfect place. You need to be prepared with a strategy to deal with the inevitable blow up. Whatever you do, NEVER stick your head in the sand, deal with the crap as quickly as you can and keep your clients informed before the pile gets too deep. How you deal with these moments will speak volumes about your overall character and professionalism.

realtor tip: Tuesday's Quick Tip: Compare Yourself --- - 10/01/13 08:48 AM
 
 
Comparing yourself to others is never a good idea and can be downright unhealthy. Comparison doesn't stem from a happy place. If you need to compare yourself to something, look backwards at how you, yourself have changed and the progress you have made on your own.  If you see yourself as better than the subject you are comparing yourself to – you over inflate your ego. If you see yourself as not as well off as the subject you are just hurting yourself, tossing away any work/progress you have made.

realtor tip: Monday's Quick Tip: Optimism. - 09/30/13 01:11 PM
 
Create Optimism.
Successful people have the ability to manufacture their own optimism. No matter what the situation.  A successful person is the one who will always find a way to put an optimistic spin on it. They know failure only as an opportunity to grow and learn a new lesson from life. People who think optimistically see the world as a place packed with endless opportunities, especially in trying times

He says:
 
“If we don't enjoy what we do, we won't be able to push as hard as we need to push for as long as we need to push to achieve our best. However, if we do enjoy what we do, and if we're enthusiastic about it, we'll do it better and come closer to becoming the best we can be.”

realtor tip: NO ACTIONS=NO RESULTS - 12/17/12 10:29 AM
With only 9 business days left in 2012 I am sure we are all thinking about 2013
We all set goals each year around career, finances, health, friendships, family and more. As Lewis Carroll said, “If you don’t know where you are going any road will take you there.”
Take some time to look back at 2012. What goals did you achieve? What goals did you fall short of? What goals did you totally abandon?
To me, the point of goal setting is not to tie you down or make you feel like a failure if you don’t achieve them. Life … (9 comments)

realtor tip: As 2012 comes to a close, are you ready for 2013? - 12/12/12 12:12 PM
 
 
2012 is almost over... It is time to begin putting a plan together for 2013 so it is time to ask yourself some questions:
·         What worked well for you in 2012?
·         What did not work at all?
·         What new strategy do you want to try?
·         Where did your business come from in 2012?
·         When was the last time you reached out to your past clients?
·         Where can you improve?
·         What is your goal for 2013?
·         What didn’t you try in 2012 that you want to try in 2013
·         … (0 comments)

realtor tip: Monday's Business Tip: Refuse to Lose! - 04/16/12 11:47 AM
 
When times get tough it’s often easier to pull back from relationships and focus on the tasks at hand. We have a tendency to lose our focus. We confuse activity with productivity and busy-ness with business!
 
Don’t lose site of the big picture!
 
Your Goals – What are you aiming for and why are you "in the game." When you are focused on WHY you "enter the battle" every day, you will find that you can put up with almost any of the WHAT you have to do.
 
Your Customers – Make sure that your customers and … (6 comments)
