So much technology and so little time.

Yesterday, I received one proposing for a minimum of $225 per month and I would be “guaranteed front page placement on Google” by “a bona fide certified Google specialist”. Well, doesn’t that sound all official and everything? Pretty flashy, but that’s a lot of advertising budget dollars per month! Is this worth it to me? Would it be worth it to you? Give me a call and let's find out together!

So much technology and so little time. I don’t know about you, but I get so many soliciting phone calls (spam) from companies offering SEO and front-page placement on Google.

If you or your client have an older multi-family property, it was built to be compliant with the codes of that time and may not be compliant with current codes and ordinance or law changes.

If your or your clients’ building suffers a loss or damage, it may now be required for the building to comply with current codes and ordinances during the reconstruction. Basic insurance policies may not cover the expense of bringing the building up to current code and would come directly out of your or your clients’ pocket.

How many of you have gone through your real estate career having one time or another had to “chalked it up to experience”? As much as this may have stung, did you learn something from it?

Having been in the real estate business (residential and commercial) for over 20 years and recently property management, I gained a lot of knowledge and learned a lot of things. But at times, I just had to chalk things up to experience. And move on.
However, if you’re continually having to “Chalk things up to Experience”, it may be time to hire someone to help you.

Of course, you’re taking the required real estate continuing ed classes as well as a webinar here and there, but are those really helping your business? They have great ideas to implement into your business, but are you using them after you added them to your notes?

Perhaps it is time to hire a real estate coach.

It is heart-wrenching to see the tenants in demolished apartment buildings begging for assistance, living days into weeks without power or shelter. They are asking non-profits, private citizens, and the government to help them with the bare necessities of life. Many don’t speak English or have money to go to a safer place.

However, it didn’t need to be this way for these tenants. These people could be staying in a motel, maybe not in Cedar Rapids, but someplace and their stay in a hotel/motel would be completely covered.

Thousands are literally sawing their way out here in Iowa after 100+ mph winds. Could we have prepared for this?

One thing this past week has taught me is you need to be prepared – for anything. The storm lasted at least 45 minutes and kept raging and charging – twisting and twisting. We could hear the trees snap as the wind tore into them. And then it was gone – an eerie silence.

5. Rip Up the Goals You Set for 2012 and Set New Ones.
Many agents came into 2012 with goals influenced by the struggles of 2010 and 2011. Destroy those goals. This is going to be a fabulous year. You can make small fortunes this year. The well prepared professionals will make large fortunes. Don't let the last two years impact your belief in yourself.

What are your goals now????
