The Paper Jungle… And How to Navigate Through It!

Ask Denise: Nice and Niche

Q: “Denise, as you know, I am a newer agent and have been working hard developing all my systems over the past year with you and your team with Mastery. I am in a transition time in my life and although I am doing all the mailings and implementing the systems we have been talking […]

“Hello? HELLO!!!” Are Your Phone Skills In Line?

I am on the phone every day of my life, most of us are. We send messages and receive messages and often we don’t think about the power of a well-thought-out message or a well-spoken reply to a message. I have been greatly disappointed by the quality of the phone messages I hear and the […]

Ask Denise: Setback? Rebound!

Denise, I am frustrated! I have been in the business for 15 years and each year my business has gotten a little better and a little better. I was on track at the beginning of the year to finish the year a smidge higher than last year, but several clients have had a change of […]

Ask Denise: Reassuring Statistics

Q: “Denise, I have a number of clients who are concerned about the change in the real estate market. I am telling them that it isn’t like the Great Recession beginning but I don’t think they believe me. What information would you share with them to get them to calm down?” A: It can be […]
