I’m going to stay ahead of the pack… The lead dog eats first!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Photo Courtesy of Scoll22Over the past three years I have done a lot of lease options and owner financing deals. Now the market has changed and so is everyone else. I'm starting to get lost in a sea of idiots. But, as they play catch up, I'm preparing myself for the next wave in real estate and when the road turns, I will be faced in the right direction while they are behind me once again playing catch up.

Now, will I ever be the number one agent in Washington County, Oregon? Probably not, but that isn't what it is about for me, it is about my family and the families of my clients. But, I do know that if I want to keep food on my family's table, than I need to change with the times and be the lead dog when it comes to the ever changing market.

I will still continue to do lease options and owner financing, but what will be on the horizon for me? I guess my 2009 business plan will set that tone. But I don't plan to go to pasture trying to follow someone else's lead like so many have done in the past six months.

Duty for the future. If your going to run with the big dogs you have to learn to lift your leg a little bit higher.
