Selling Soulfully with Jennifer Allan-Hagedorn

Education & Training - Sell with Soul
My thoughts and ramblings on the real estate industry and how we've gotten into the pickle of being among the nation's most UNtrusted professions!



So, you work in a resort community where most of the buyers and sellers live somewhere else. It's not likely you'll run into them at the grocery store or local coffee shop, and they probably won't be having a housewarming party you can finagle an invitation to (or even offer to host!). And unles...
Okay, I've heard it all. I have a friend who just started selling real estate. She hired on with a Big Name company that promises lotsa training. So far, my friend is underwhelmed, but the other night she called me almost hysterical. My friend can't get anyone to help her role-play writing an of...

If you're on my mailing list, you got an email from me over the weekend describing the uninvited sleeping guests I discovered in my Panama City Beach hotel room bed. If you missed it... here's what I wrote: Dear SWS'ers,   Okay, I'm supposed to be on vacation. Nothing major, just a few days at th...
For the low, low price of just $49, you, yes, you can have 12 hours of brilliant real estate discussions, interviews and seminars delivered in .mp3 audio format that can be easily burned to CDs and keep you entertained on your August road trip vacation. Or, just on your day-to-day wanderings 'ro...
