What If…A Seller Asks You to Cut Your Commission?

I’m teaching at the Lynnwood Convention Center. The first thing you have to remember is that when someone asks you to cut your commission, they are being motivated by something.

How Will You Prepare Your Business for 2022?

Right now it is the fall real estate season. Maybe, just maybe, in your area you might have the sensation that the market has softened. Maybe just a little bit. And ho-boy, if you have been working hard all year long, this may feel like a long overdue and welcome moment. But I’ve done my […]

For this week’s Zebra Report I want to talk about that sick feeling that most people get when they are confronted by conflict. I want to specifically address what happens to a person […]

Conquering Conflict

Today, the topic is conflict. Again? Yes. We need to address conflict. Why? For starters, almost every day in my business, I get a call from at least one agent talking about conflict.
