Striving to be all I can be.....and then some:
- I have no control over others and do not try and MAKE them think like me. We are all human and individuals with our own opinions and there is no two that think alike. That's what makes me unique.
- There may be a power greater than myself but ultimately it is me that has to do the footwork. I will be patient and tolerant and accept situations on a case by case basis so I do not go insane. I will LISTEN to my clients needs...not tell them what they ‘want' to hear.
- Made a decision to turn my thinking around and have healthy beliefs, values and morals. In this way I will structure my transactions accordingly with a healthy time managed business. I keep my healthy boundaries and be direct and forward in all I do.
- Evaluate my transactions and my every day interactions with others to make sure I did everything in my power to think in the best interests of my clients and myself. That will always be first and foremost in my business and if unsure ASK.
- Admit any mistakes and ask my Broker and others in the industry with whom I trust for guidance, advice and help. Learn from each experience and grow from those learning lessons and if I do make a mistake, APOLOGIZE and MOVE ON. Better to ask then be a fool.
- We were entirely ready to go above and beyond the call of duty. We continue to strive to be all we can be and KNOW that there will be bumps along the way because no two transactions will ever be the same.
- Be confident in ourselves and know that realize we are truly human. We will always make mistakes but can forgive ourselves when we know that we did not do anything to intentionally harm another.
- Make amends to those we may have harmed. We all know that real estate is a stressful line of work for not just the clients but all involved. Always be the one to be above the crowd and get back on track as soon as possible.
- We do make direct amends to those people whenever possible. Be aware that we do so without ulterior motives to hurt others (including those who have intentionally tried to hurt me in the process)
- Evaluate each day at the end of the day. Make sure and take inventory, make amends and end each day knowing we did the right thing. Then we can allow ourselves to sleep well at night.
- Take time for self so we do not let our business overrun our lives. We keep in conscious contact with keeping boundaries, time management, self improvement and continuing education so we never remain stagnant and continue to grow.
- After going through many transactions and following the steps above we help others who are in need of our help. Helping others and working together as a team will lead to a common goal. Closed transactions and happy clients!
And the list will never stop growing.
Real Estate is continuously changing
