How Can I Help You With Your 2017 Goals?


Today I wanted to discuss some of the most important things going on as we head into February.

Today I wanted to talk a little bit about goals. We're into February, which means we're already 1/12th of the way into 2017. How are you doing with your goals?

A goal of mine this year is to have coffee with an average of three different people each week, whether it be real estate-related or not. I want to be around people who want to get better because iron sharpens iron. We'll address that in a moment.

With everything going on right now and everyone being so frustrated, I think it's important to talk about tone in 2017. I think if we come from a position of understanding and caring and tone, we'll be better off. Let's be good role models. We can disagree on things, but my goal is to come from a place of understanding and tone, and help more people in 2017.

For instance, we're helping someone right now with a $179,000 condo. We don't just do luxury listings—if my team takes you on as a client, you have my team's all. We help the big and the small. I don't want you to think we're too busy or that we're not interested in helping anybody out.

With it being February, I hope you're pacing your goals. It's hard to believe Super Bowl Sunday is just a couple days away, but that's when many people believe the 'official' buying and selling season starts. If you're thinking of selling your property, let us know, because there might be 30 to 60 days of work that you need to do. Don't wait until the last second!

We are already into February, how are you doing with your goals?

I'd also love to hear what your big goals are for 2017, whether they're personal, business-related, religious, or family-related. As I mentioned, I want to meet with an average of three people per week for coffee and hear more about how I can help you. Accountability is important; most people don't share their goals with other people, but accountability is what helps you get to where you want to be. Don't be shy—I'd love to hear your goals!

I also wanted share a little bit of information about our networking group, which is growing. We meet monthly, and we'll be meeting the fourth week of February. If you know of a business owner or someone that caters to high net worth individuals and you're interested in hearing more about our networking group, you can nominate them or yourself. We only have one person per field, so we have one men's clothing designer and one kitchen remodeling guy, for example. We'd love to hear from you and to grow that group.

In closing, I think 2017 will be a great year no matter who the president is, no matter what interest rates do, etc. You choose to be successful. Don't rely on the government, because you control your outlook. I want to be around positive people no matter what, so let's make the world better as we head into February.

If you have any questions for me, you can always give me a call or send me an email. I'd love to hear from you!
