Online Marketing Webinar Notes

First, I’d like to thank all of you who took time out of your busy day to join me on yesterday’s webinar.  Based on your phone calls and emails, I’d say it was a success.  We covered a lot and based on the questions during the Q&A session, I have some of the sharpest agents […]

The Ultimate Blog

Let’s face it: Blogging is like flossing… Everyone knows they need to do it and yet nobody does it.  I remember going to a seminar or training class and listening as some blogging guru got me all excited about starting my own blog and so I decided I would bite the bullet and start my […]

Give Yourself a Raise!

When is the last time you had a pay raise? If you’re like most agents it’s been a while.  I was talking to an agent just the other day and we were discussing increasing our incomes and this agent seemed to be thinking about her income being something out of her control.  Here is what […]

Two Problems, One Solution…

We would rather allow a friend or client to make a mistake than risk offending them. But what’s even […]

Little Ditty About Tom and Marian…

I was working at my desk last night around seven when my phone rang. It showed to be a Missouri number and I thought it might be an agent needing help so I answered. I met the wife of a husband and wife real estate team. Marian. Tom and Marian work for a local franchise […]

What If You Had to Start Over?

What if you had to start over again from scratch? Imagine that the entire network of referrals you’d spent years cultivating went away? No help from your hundreds of previous customers, your friends, your church family — you had to begin again from ground zero. Scary, huh? Or maybe you’re just starting in the business […]
