My New Year's Resolutions for Sacramento Short Sales

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

sacramento short sale resolutionI prefer to think of New Year's resolutions as goals and not resolutions. Because resolutions are things you break. Aw, come on. You know it and I know it. How many years have you sat down and written something like, "lose 10 pounds," and then you go out and buy a box of chocolate-covered cherries? Ok, maybe I'm talking about myself. Or, how about you lose the 10 pounds but gain back 15, so it doesn't count? Oops.

I'd rather make goals, something that I will work to achieve, and something that's more important to me than losing 10 pounds. I've already set some goals in place such as making reservations at the Four Seasons in Hawaii to explore the western side of the Big Island next year. Another goal is not to start smoking again. It's one thing to quit, it's quite another to not start. Anybody can quit. Staying quit for years and years is a goal.

But when it comes to my Sacramento short sales, I have goals that I will continue to implement. It's what I've done the past 5 years in short sales and what I will continue to do. Here are my 2011 goals for selling Sacramento short sales:

  • Be compassionate and understanding that these sellers are losing their homes; be gentle and kind
  • Step back from the transaction and do what is best for the clients; don't insert my own feelings into it
  • Analyze each situation independently and separately from other short sales
  • If necessary, fight the banks until I have no breath left with which to fight; never give up
  • Work only with clients I like and respect -- whom I feel truly need to do a short sale

I closed more than $15 million in sales for 2010. I'd say what I am doing works. If it's not broken, then I don't need to fix it. If you're looking for a Sacramento short sale agent in 2011, why not call Elizabeth Weintraub at 916 233 6759? I'd love to talk with you and hear about your goals for 2011.

Elizabeth-I'm with you I quite make resolutions year's ago.  I have a goal list both personal and professional.  Last year I made the professional ones but missed on a couple of the personal ones.  But I'm not going to beat myself up.  Just get back on the horse and make them happen this year.

Your bar is already so high Elizabeth, I'm amazed that you're able to raise it any further. But if there's one thing I've noticed about you, it's that you get what you are determined to go after. Good for you and Happy New Year!
