Ask Denise: Wrong Personality?

Denise Lones

Q:  Denise, I was on your website and was taking your free personality test. I am a newer real estate agent and haven’t had a lot of success yet. It said I was an analytical first and supporter second. I am concerned because I am not a promoter first and I think I need to […]

writing out action plan

Agents near and far have been clamoring for a meaty business plan template for 2016. However, my recommendation for 2016 is to keep it short, sweet, and only focus on the action items that are going to bring you business. “But Denise!” they say, “Where do I put my income goals? Where do I put […]
