Do you ever wonder who you really are? Have you ever thought about why you're here, why you participate in real estate???Do you understand yourself? Your ID, your EGO, your personal personality???

The old saying is..."You reap what you sow"...My new phrase is "You reap your ATTITUDE!"Are you positive when you phone rings, albeit to your customer, client, or an agent calling you with questions about a listing you have?Are you a genuinely positive agent?Are you listening to the news, the media, or are you listening to youself (and your positive peers)?Do you exude a positive attitude always?Do you pretend - please say, "No"...People feel the negativity...REAP POSITIVITY! It will come back to you ten fold!!!Love what you do as a Realtor(R) or seek another profession...There is no room for negativity in real estate...Love it or leave it....JMO!  Happy selling, Happy listing, Happy thoughts my friends....As always positive sales!

In this market...let me rephrase. This market isn't as bad as the media relays! People will buy and people will sell. Some are selling out of desperation, some are selling for other reasons.Buyers are buying out of necessity...relocation (jobs), etc. or "just because they can".What do you tell the buyers and sellers...when they joke about the market and the doom and gloom?I laugh and say, it is what it is, how do you feel?Most of the astute people who understand the economy are laughing with me and saying...I'll buy now...why not...how much lower can it go. I mean with all the short sales and foreclosures...those are in the control of the lenders...Many of the business oriented crowd are buying...renting their personal homes else where, and waiting to sell them until the market is on a ...

My question is, "Do you have the gut's in this market, to hang in there for the future glory?" Do you have financial backing to be able to hang? What are your plans as a full time agent. What does your BUSINESS PLAN consist of for next year. I would like to hear how you designed your business plan for next year in this market. I would also like to know whether you work full time or part-time. Are you going to hang in there and try to make it? In Florida we have lost almost 40% of our agents. Do you have the gut's to wait for the long term glory, can you do it financially, can you wait?How do you make a business plan in this market. I welcome those with experience to give us advice. I'm not sure what plan to extend to my broker. I'm positive and I'm going to hang in there, are you?I mark...

"Because my friends told me to..."  "Huh?"  "Why did they say this?"Amazing what information people believe from talking to friends who read the daily paper or who read on-line...I don't know about the rest of you who read my blogs through out the US and Canada, but agents in Florida have been moving property prices up! Yes, I said, Up!  It has started to become the norm...brokers and full-time agents have discussed this recently...If the market is so bad, and people are not buying...Hhhmmm, why is this happening?I agree! The market is turning, albeit slowly, but with mortgage rates low, and the predictors indicating that 1 - 16 people buying in 2008, things ARE CHANGING!Perhaps the media should do more research. At least in South Florida they are changing. It's season here so maybe it'...

 Sunday night, I went to the Blue Martini Lounge (Ft. Lauderdale) with several Girlfriends.  Blue Martini is one of many fun spots in Ft. Lauderdale Nightlife. Although I'd been there before, I hadn't been there at a time when there was Live Music playing.  I was in for a real treat.  Ruffhouse Band rocked the house with energetic Reggae, Oldies, and new hits.   Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale is best known for their 25+ varieties of Martinis (duh!), but they also feature a great variety of other drinks, a delicious Food menu, and a Live Band most nights.  Happy Hour is 4-7 p.m. every day.If you're thinking of stopping by, Blue Martini is located at The Galleria Mall at 2432 E. Sunrise Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale, FL and you can check out Blue Martini's website for additional venue details.Pictu...
