I have seen the Realtor name being dragged through the mud numerous times in recent years in the media. But I recently attended an event where the exact opposite experience took place and a roomful of Realtors came out feeling a lot better about themselves. It was a life-altering event when I had the honour to hear a presentation by Michael “Pinball” Clemons.

Pinball is a great speaker who talks about teamwork and leadership. He is a former CFL star and coach and one of the most energetic people you will ever meet. He is passionate, well spoken and inspiring. He is more than a sports figure; he is an amazing human being who tries, and I believe succeeds, in making the people around him better than they were before...

Are Generation Y ready to be Homeowners??

Category: Business

I love to hear peoples opinions and this is an interesting one. I believe that Our clients are influenced heavily by Gen Y on their buying decisions minimally and frankly in Canada many Gen Y are buying homes, and can make a huge impact on any Real Estate Business. Please Check out my own article in the early months of this blog on Gen Y.

Understanding DISC (2) – Disney Characters!

Here are four Disney characters that fit each DISC behavioural style. Just to give you a different viewpoint.

Mustafa from the Lion King – High D

Well, let’s face it he’s a lion. Lions are dominant by nature but his personality style in the movie screams of highly dominant behaviour. After all he accepted the challenge of being king, he manages any trouble that arises in the kingdom and helps the rest of the kingdom solve problems.

Ariel from the Little Mermaid – High I

This is one of my daughter’s all time favourites. Ariel tends to view people and situations with optimism; she is very articulate and makes an extremely favourable impression...

Get Inspired and Sell MORE!

I have said it before and I will say it again. Motivation is nothing compared to INSPIRATION. I always hear people saying, “You have to get motivated” or “we need more motivation” and the fact is motivation is a short term thing. Motivate means “to provide with a motive or motives”. It is someone providing something to another person. Inspire on the other hand is “to produce or arouse”. It is creating something from within. This is where real gain is found. A long term fix because it is a part of the person, not an outside factor.

Think of it this way, you can motivate a child to clean there room by taking away the keys to the car, but how long will that last? If you can find a reason for them to want to clean their room on a regular basis this will creat...

Finding the Business I Forgot About

Category: Business

by Andy Herrington

I am often approached by agents who say “I’m not busy, what can I do.” Frankly I have many answers to that query all of which require work ethic or money or both. I have no ‘Zero Effort’ ideas to get someone busy. However I have many ‘Zero money’ ideas. There are the common and straight forward from Cold Calling and Door Knocking to the more modern, Craigslist and Kijiji. However this article is about the one I believe to be the most effective and least used tip I know. In fact one agent I talk to does this on Week 3 of every month in order to find one extra deal a month he swears by it.

I refer to it as doing the business you forgot about. We all have it, no matter how successful or how organized we are there is always ‘business we forgot about’...
