Be Positive! There is Business to be Had!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fran Rokicki Realty, LLC

Don’t anticipate the worst ~ anticipate the best ~ it just might happen.  I remember my Mom, telling me this as I was growing up.  If you are negative, you will attract negative people.  If you think negatively, you will send yourself into a place that you cannot allow yourself to be. 

How can you possibly sell homes to people who are nervous, excited and anxious, if you are not the positive, enthusiastic professional

My Coach, Brian Buffini, says that his Mom used to tell him,  "Show me your friends, I'll show you who you are."  Okay, so, if you have friends, who are negative and going no where, you need to look for more friends.  I won't say new friends, because I don't believe in abandoning your present friends, but, for your own survival, you must find positive people to impact your life.  Your present friends may come along with you and change their thinking, too!

Be a communicator.  Don't assume that someone knows what you are thinking.  They do not.  To be successful in any relationship, you must really sit down and communicate with eachother.  Remember, we were all brought up in different homes.  What you may believe is so, may not even occur to the other people.

Life can be a joy.  So can, selling real estate.  Keep your lines of communication open.  Call your database, your current clients and let them know that you are listening to them.  When you don't communicate, they will assume that you don't care.  Certainly, that isn't true.  Be the communicator and try to bring out the best of your friends, clients and associates.  Talk it out and find out what is really happening, together. Be optimistic, and know that you are the best person for them, to talk with and work with.

Remember, the goal is to have a happy transaction.  Happy beginnings, not endings.  Having this client learn to know you and the good person that you are, will keep you receiving referrals forever

Start communicating, today!

" You are So Right."  The only way to live our lives is the positive way. Positive attracts more positive. Our clients want us to help guide them through their real estate transactions and doing it with an optimistic and enthusiastic attitude, is the only way. Our clients expect strong and sincere leadership from us and to do this, there is no room for negativity. The media may talk negative, but we have to talk positive and be supportive to our clients. Good Positive Blog.....    :)

I love these tips.  It's been one of those month's for me, with the holidays and all.  But just stopping by the "Rain" gives me the encouragement and direction that I need to keep going at it.
