I also pledged to keep my family close...to respect my husband's and children's needs and time. ...to treat my family with the same respect as my customers.....maybe....a bit more. I pledged to consider the buyer,... the seller....the TRANSACTION... as if it was the only one in the world.....to be creative when issues would arise....to be part of the SOLUTION.....NOT ....part of the PROBLEM.Perhaps just as important as all the above....to NEVER think of the Money to be made for the transaction.....But.....Just make sure I used my time, knowledge, and ability to make sure each transaction would be handled honestly, fairly, and FOR the buyers and sellers.....knowing that in doing this .....in return....I would be compensated.....
THE ABOVE IS STILL MY WAY OF DOING BUSINESS.

You find out exactly what works and what does not...
Prospecting works... talking with 20 People each and every day is the key that opens up business...
For Buyers.... pre Qual is a must!
The area that I wish was a little better is the internet... Has not given me much luck after all the amount of time working on it...
In any case... everyone is different and the amount of answers to this question are endless...
You just have to work and work and then... out of now where... you seem to just get lucky... ( but its all that hard work that finally pays off )
I still have small issues with that because I know how panicked buyers and sellers can get and their problems don't usually happen between 9-5. However, I have learned that most things are not emergencies and if I take a deep breath, we can work it out.
I've learned to say no and not feel guilty about it.
My clients still love me and so does my family.
Say NO to showing rental property.
Be even more honest with buyers...even when they don't want to hear it.
Making the sale is secondary to my reputation, will give buyer all relevant info even if it means having to move on and looking at more properties.
