Real estate agents who are surviving in this market can be described with many different adjectives. Resilient is one that comes to mind immediately. To endure the effects of this ever changing real estate market, active agents need to be strong, tough and very pliable.
How pliable have you learned to become? It is learning process, and those who pay attention and adjust to the changing times will be resistant to every stage of the market that takes a dip. There are many more dips coming.
Pat, Ben and Martin Mullikin, commented on my post "Never Give Up...It's Always The Last Key On The Ring That Opens The Door" and they appropriately quoted Dale Carnegie who said "Act enthusiastic and you'll be enthusiastic." That's a wonderful phrase to remember and practice to endure the next several years.
Block out the negative around you; stay enthusiastic and keep working. You'll find business, and business will find you. It works both ways, when you continue to work!!
