SHIFT, Possibility and (drum roll) KELLER

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Asheville 1031 Real Estate Investments 209970

About the real estate market today, Gary Keller (the Keller of Keller-Williams) said at a meeting not long ago, "I am not going to say you are in a good are in a tough spot."   

Possibly, maybe, could "tough spots" really be challenges and/or blessings in disguise?

Keller wonders how folks really can get into telling what makes their " tough spot"  tougher than someone else's . And Keller is NOT one of the complainers.

He has experienced the ups and downs in the real estate market before. He has weathered those storms. As a result, he can offer path-lights to illuminate a reliable way when shifts occur. In fact, he has written about getting on the path that leads to balance for real estate professionals walking through those "tough spots" in his book, 

SHIFT, How Top Real Estate Agents Tackle Tough Times. 

There is more than strategy in this book.
There are more than the "12 proven tactics to help you make the most of any market."  

There is a bold challenge!
(check out the video that follows)


I like the challenge, how about you? I like the idea that, as Keller puts it, " can't monkey around..." For me two important points he makes are:

1)      "You have to act your WAGE." 
2)      "You have to live the calendar and the focus of a high achiever" 

As a professional who sees my role as a person who provides objective fiduciary counsel, I know that these two points work. ..and thriving in any real estate market can be the much desired outcome. 

AND, something I know. During ups-and-downs in my life, on many levels, and during the great and small shifts there are GIFTS  and there is  inspiration is available-if/when I seek it.

I found such inspiration in SHIFT, How Top Real Estate Agents Tackle Tough Times. Here's Gary Keller in his own words for those who are ready to be inspired. (see short video)

I already ordered mine. I can't wait to get it.

There is an added bonus that most people don't know about. With the purchase you will get an eBook of Ben Kinny's (yes, Active Rain's very own Ben Kinny!) 10 Days of Pain. Those who have been to rain Camp know what this is about. For those who don't, it is sheer genious!

It is a 10 day program to capture and convert internet leads. I have been using it since Rain Camp in Seattle and it works.

Shift is "ordered" is an interesting concept, especially when I think of the various definitions of "ordered"......I am thinking about that now...

janeAnne, Gary Keller knows what makes a successful business model - being able to adapt to changes in the marketplace. Businesses who do survive - those who don't are gone.
