Who's your biggest competition? Maybe I should talk to them, too.

Real Estate Agent with BlueCoast Realty Corporation

Who's your biggest competition?  Maybe I should talk to them, too.

Wow.  Interesting question and one I'm actually quite glad you asked.

There are some fantastic Agents in the Wrightsville Beach NC area.  That's a genuine statement:  they are truly knowledgeable, capable, intelligent, ethical -- the list goes on and on.  I'm proud to call them colleagues, it's good company to be in.  And in spite of what you may have heard, most Real Estate Agents like one another! 

There are only so many homes in Wrightsville Beach NC, and it stands to reason that we vie for the same listings sometimes.  We try to attract anyone looking to buy a home in Wrightsville Beach NC.   And it's the nature of the business that sometimes one of my colleagues will get a listing or a buyer, I waPicture of runnerss really hoping to work with.

In spite of that, "they" are not my competition.  I AM MY BIGGEST COMPETITION.  I don't worry about what kind of production other Agents are doing.  Like a runner, I don't look over my shoulder to see what's coming up behind me, or too far ahead so I trip over my own feet.  My goal is to improve my time/production/business.  I put my energy into improving my skills, my knowledge and my bottom line.  I want to improve my business every day, in whatever way possible.  It may be taking a class, utilizing social media to help sell a listing, studying what worked last year and what didn't.  Making changes when necessary and holding on to the tried and true when it's still working.  No matter how well I did yesterday, I need to do better today. 

That's why I compete with myself.  So that when I say, I'm your Wrightsville Beach NC Real Estate Expert, I can back it up.  Back it up to you and to myself.

Suzanne ~  Thanks, it works for me.  Of course, Barbara makes an excellent point -- we have to stay aware of what's going on in our market -- including what "they're" doing.

Liz & Bill ~  Here, here -- I'm with you.

Margaret ~  Thank you so much for everything.  Appreciated your call.

Tish, the best way to improve is to compete against yourself. Doing that makes you have to get better.  You don't want to lose out to yourself.   It wouldn't look good!

Tish, I don't know that I ever thought about it, but I think that I feel the same way. I am hard on myself, always looking for a way to do things better, looking for more info, more more more, better better better!

Thank you for putting it in words for me!

Good analogy Tish, running / real estate. I have compared it to golf because your are playing the course and and not the other players, striving to improve the components of your game while tuning out distractions, every shot is unique, and the weather keeps changing. Never pass up an opportunity to compliment the other players on a well played shot:)

Tish, you've been doing a great job outdoing yourself.  Can't imagine any of the others in Wrightsville are keeping up.  No doubt but that you'd be my first choice.

William ~  You're right -- it wouldn't, indeed.

Andrea ~  Thanks for understanding.

Leah ~  There's some pretty stiff "competition" in these here parts!

Tim ~  Works for me . . .

Roger ~  Many thanks to you and Ilene!

Dorie ~  Running fast to stay in place.

Tish, I wish I could be more like you; I am constantly watching my competition and gauging where I am...I'm so freakin' competitive...I'm hoping age (although I don't need any more years on me!) will soften me a bit.

I do not consider the competition my enemy. I know there are some out there that do not like me, but that is THEIR thing, not mine. They are not my enemy. They are their own enemy.

I'd hire you in a heartbeat to be my agent in Wrightsville Beach, NC!
