Hi  and welcome to my Weekly Insight for Monday 10th October 2014

Quote for the week:

"Anyone can make contact digitally. True relationships happen face to face."

SET A RECORD FOR FACE TO FACE!

  
After several years I have met up again with a real estate licensee who has had as many years in the business as me - nearly 34 years.
 
It was delightful to share time with an old friend who still has a real sparkle in his eyes, tons of energy and a ready smile. We talked about the changes in real estate and how we have had to adopt technology to keep up with systems, internet, email etc.
 
We talked too of how we suceeded in the 1980's with no mobile phone, no computer and only "snail mail."
 
We both burst out at the same time: "Remember how we spent all day walking around, shaking hands and talking with people. You know, really talking with people?"
 
We both looked for a moment and said: "That's what we still do and yet so many sit at their desks tapping keyboards."
 
My friend then said:
"I continue to earn several hundreds of thousands of dollars every year using this simple strategy; How many people can I talk with, shake hands with, share a smile with every day?
My goal is 10 minimium a day, 5 days a week. Doesn't matter who or where. I have found that people like nice people. So that's all I do - be nice, smile and shake their hands. Funny how the business comes and comes."
 
Looking for new listings? New Buyers? Get out of the office and go talk WITH real people.
 
The market rewards those agents who keep their client relationships strong!
         
Have a truly awesome week because you make it so.
