HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR FOUNDATION LATELY?

Foundation

We all know that we need a good foundation to build a house.  The foundation is the essential element to the structure to follow.

But how often do we stop and think about the foundation of our business?  I have just personally passed the milestone of my first year as a REALTOR.  And I am proud of that and what a great year it has been.  It has caused me to stop and look back at my personal principles of business to see where I have been and hopefully continue to build on these.  I won't bore you with all of those, but just a few are: 

  • HARD WORK (and it has been that!!)
  • PROVIDING THE UTMOST LEVEL OF SERVICE I CAN
  • EDUCATION, EDUCATION, EDUCATION
  • TRYING TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
  • NOT BEING AFRAID TO TRY NEW THINGS (like blogging....I can't believe I am doing this!)

 

Of course, all this doesn't mean anything without the essential ingredient of ATTITUDE & PERSEVERANCE!  I think that is going to be crucial in the coming months. And that is one of the things I love about AR...it is so refreshing to have such a supportive group of resourceful people with resourceful ideas!!!  THANK YOU!

Below is a picture of house that I listed and sold!  It is one of those monumental times that I will always look back on for motivation.  I helped a new builder get Spec Financing when it was really hard to get, I listed the house and sold it before we framed second floor!  I think everyone thought I was nuts...BUT I DID IT! 

720 Finch WayTHANK YOU for taking time out of your busy day to read my thoughts.

And I would sure love to hear from you about YOUR PRINCIPLES OF BUSINESS. That is what makes AR so great!  I have learned so much reading so many of your posts....I thought what the heck, I would give it a try...

PS  Anyone got some resourceful information for the building process...I want to learn more!
