But when it comes to building trust among clients and achieving the most loyalty humanly possible, one of the greatest gifts we can all give ourselves is the ability to stare our fears right in the face during those times when we must deliver the not-so-great news that occasionally interrupts our victories.

Even The Best Free Real Estate CRM of 2018 Should Be Considered With Care

Posted by Mark Cafiero on Jul 23, 2018 12:54:08 PM

Due to the highly competitive nature of real estate, how you equip your tactical toolset is a priority that should never be taken lightly.  Even the best free CRM in real estate may not be the best option for real estate agents looking to grow their business on a budget.

To survive in tomorrow’s market amidst a constantly evolving industry, agents need to be highly well-rounded on all aspects of their professional existence. Since it’s rare that we can be equally excellent marketers, managers, negotiators, sellers, administrators, and relationship managers, we must rely on software and other tools to compensate for our areas for improvement and automate our most time-consuming tasks (thus freeing up time for more sophisticated priorities).

To survive, you must be able to adapt to changing conditions and refine your skill sets across the board. Depending on where you are in your career, budgeting and prioritizing are also important, especially if you’re handling fewer than 10 transactions per year with hope to grow.

And when it comes to choosing a CRM, the seed you plant is one that should be selected carefully (with the future in mind)!

Posted by Mark Cafiero on May 15, 2018 4:02:00 PM

Each year, realtors (and professionals from every other industry imaginable) set off to workshops and conventions, hoping to find inspiration from someone else who’s killing it. Naturally, we want to know their secret to success and apply it to our own business. In the crowded arena of real estate agents, it makes sense that realtors have a desire to differentiate.

The ABC's Of Real Estate Sales And Other B?!!$#÷x To Avoid

Posted by Dave Crumby on Sep 20, 2017 3:00:00 PM

“Indeed, the persons who take the greatest pains to proffer such advice are themselves unable to put it into practice.” - Seneca

In order to grow, evolve and move forward as real estate agents and as an industry - we have to look at our past with open eyes.

Let's be honest.

Real estate sales hasn’t always been pretty. And given the digital age we're in, you'll need to set your own path...

Throughout the years, I’ve seen agents in screaming matches, fist fights in the bullpen (or, as we used to call it, the ‘octagon’), go through bankruptcies, and divorces. And tragically, even colleagues who have taken their own lives...

Understand, I’m not sharing any of this to point fingers or hurt feelings – rather, just to share truth. With truth we all grow.

Why Introverts Make Great Real Estate Agents

Posted by Dave Crumby on Oct 18, 2016 2:14:00 PM
It may seem counter-intuitive at first: an introverted real estate agent? You mean those people who would rather stay home on a Friday night curled up with a book than be out at a cocktail party?

Yes, I’m talking about those people. In fact, I’m one of them, and I was a successful real estate agent for 15 years.

So much of a real estate agent’s work involves interacting with people—knocking on doors, making phone calls, having in-person meetings, showing homes, making new connections in the community, and so on. It sounds like the perfect job for someone who is outgoing—a “people person” or a “social butterfly.”

Posted by Lisa Crumby on Jun 13, 2016 9:35:45 PM

Who is Fred?

Reading motivational books about success and relationships have always inspired me. I recently read a book called  "The Fred Factor".  It's a story about a mailman named Fred who loved his job and took great pride in his customer service - a true role model for anyone wanting to make a difference in their work and in life! Fred's ultimate goal as a mail carrier was to provide his neighborhood with top notch service and to treat everyone he came in contact with as a friend. What a concept!
