Numbers Worth Knowing Lately I have been working with a lot of numbers and I have been reminded of their power. While numbers themselves are non-emotional, often they bring up a lot of emotion and therefore, are sometimes avoided. Anyone who has ever not opened their credit card statement or avoided revisiting their commission statements knows exactly what I am talking about. But numbers can also bring great joy! I was reminded of this just this week when not one but two of my clients shared with me that they had reached their commission and transaction goals for the year. These were two agents who had a specific goal in mind for quite some time and had been striving tirelessly to get there. Because they had those particular numbers in their head, they could visualize getting there, ma...

Your Work-Life Balance Check-Up I would like to take you back to December 31, 2015. You might have been with friends celebrating the new year, traveling with family, or perhaps curled up with a cup of hot cocoa next to the fire, but wherever you were and whatever you were doing, you had probably been giving some thought to the upcoming year and how it was going to be different than previous years in terms of structure and in terms of protecting  your family time. Fast forward to September 1, 2016; Labor Day weekend and the symbolic end of summer. Take a moment and grade  yourself on how well you did with  your work-life balance. Did you have rules for protecting your personal time that you enforced? How well did you juggle your personal and professional personas either at the beach or ...

The Market is NOT Falling! I have received so many emails this month asking me if the market is going to crash just because pending sales in their area have decreased slightly. When I ask them what area they are in and when I look the stats up on the MLS I confirm what I know which is that the slight decrease is completely normal for this time of year. Real estate markets everywhere fluctuate not only when markets are tumbling, they fluctuate based on what is happening in each local area. For example, the last week of August in many areas traditionally slows down because buyers are busy getting their kids ready to go back to school or enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Healthy markets breathe, they move, they sway and they fluctuate. What matters in any market is the overall health...

What is Your Back Up Plan? Have you ever wondered what you would do with your business if you received a call that required you to drop everything and divert your attention to an issue more important than business?  The call may come from a family member needing your help with an emergency or about an aging parent that needs your FULL attention now. Or worse, that call may be notice that someone you really cared about was at the end of their life. Or maybe the challenge is that YOU need to attend to a an urgent personal medical issue. Inevitably something will call for your attention at some point in your business life if it hasn't already. I realize this may not be something you want to read about today, but if you are reading this it is because you need to hear it. So, what is your b...

Learning to Delegate and Let Go When I first started selling real estate, I was a young "whipper-snapper" who wanted to set the entire industry on fire. I had it all planned. I was going to be the Number One real estate agent in America - no, the WORLD! - and I was going to do it alone. Being young and naïve, I truly believed I didn't need anyone else. I wanted to do everything myself. I wasn't going to ask anyone for help.  I wanted to be successful and thought that the definition of success was doing it all myself... how wrong I was. My, how time changes things! Now I look at that girl with her new agent's license and laugh. If only I could step back in time and tell her all the mistakes she was going to make. But she wouldn't listen anyway. Probably the biggest difference between Me...

I headed up to the Eastlake neighborhood in Seattle the evening of July 4th to watch the fireworks on Lake Union. We have an escrow branch there with a fabulous view of the Seattle Skyline (from the north), the Space Needle, and look west over Lake Union at Queen Anne Hill, the Aurora Bridge, and on clear days we enjoy views of the magnificent Olympic Mountains on the peninsula.The sky was overcast, but fortunately the cloud cover was high. For me, the weather was perfect, just a gentle breeze from the west and a comfortable cool. This is just a share, no big production. I shot it with my iPhone 6 Plus and was surprised how well it did at night with bright rockets a glare. Night is usually a good recipe for fuzzy. Also, no additional apps or fancy editing. I just put a couple of clips t...
