TOOT TOOT!!

It's O.K. to blow your own horn once in a while!

I've been working very hard this year.  My referral network is not producing adequately.  So, on January 1, 2012, I said to myself, "Lenn, get off that computer and get out and sell some real estate".

Done and Done.

I have been working directly with home buyers more this year than in the past 13 years.  In previous years, my focus was on referrals to my network of referral brokers/agents.  Still is, but in the mean time, until the market recovers, I should live so long, I will sell real estate.

Now, I'm a crusty old broad.  Real estate sales is, IMO, a business.  That said, we agents and brokers don't have agency codes of conduct and license laws for nothing.  We do help buyers and sellers complete some of the most significant financial transactions in their life times.  Further, unless we can successfully interact with consumers, most licensees will not go far residential real estate brokers either as an agent or broker.

This wonderful business is not for the faint of hart.  Nor is it for the misanthrope.  Most of us are somewhere in between the overly aggressive and the shy.  You have to have confidence in your ability to do your job, but not frighten folks with the hard sale.  Nor can you be too shy to deal effectively with agents on the other side of a transaction. 

The rewards are more than monetary as can be seen below.

Good evening Lenn. Even though you know how hard you work it sure is nice to hear someone else testify to your talents. Finding appreciative sellers or buyers is a tough one in today's world. Congrats Lenn!

Now that is a ringing endorsement - one we all seek and rarely receive in writing! Well done, Lenn.

Bob.  Thanks.  Actually, I haven't had a trap gun to shoot for 2 months.  One has been with my gunsmith for a repair and the other at the Browning factory since February.  I got the one from my gunsmith last week and went to the range Saturday afternoon.  I did go out to shoot a few rounds of skeet, but it's not a good substitute the the trap field.   I spent a couple of days on the lake about a months or so ago. I plan to get back to the lake before cold weather sets in.

Not to worry.  I know the importance of down time. 

Randy.  I think I've been lucky there.  I am pretty persnickety about whom I accept as a buyer/client.

Gary.  Absolutely.  It is truly special - like the lady that wrote it.

Lenn, It is OK to toot that horn when you know you have done a good job. By the sounds of that paycheck thank you note...the tooting is well deserved!

Any chance you can join us this Saturday, in  Chesapeake Beach, for the Ovarian Cancer walk and breakfast to follow?

Margaret.  Sorry.  I've been in Charles County for the past 3 days with a lovely former buyer who wants to buy their 3rd home, this one for their daughter. 

I need some time at home and have a new home buyer and need to preview some builders.  She wants a Rambler and there aren't many builders who have that style in their portfolio.
