Success Story

Hello all,

"Success Story"

Nothing makes me happier then when I see good things happen to our agents and when I see your businesses go to another level. Dave Goldberg came to us from Allied Realty about a year ago. At Allied Dave was a successful Real Estate agent and oversaw their property management division, a portfolio of 150+ houses built up over 20 years. Dave was comfortable but wanted more, as all of you know taking the plunge can be a scary decision. Dave walked away from Allied and their property management, transferred his Real Estate business to RE/MAX Town Center and opened "Goldberg Property Management Group". Last week Dave was in stiff competition for a 14 home portfolio in Potomac, our boy came out on top! Including the 14 from last week Dave's total portfolio stands right at 90 in just over a year, simply amazing. Big congratulations to Dave and Joyce! The American dream is alive and well.

Enjoy the coffee,

"Men are disturbed not by things that happen, but by their opinions of the things that happen."

~ Epictetus

A well-known motivational speaker once said, "No one knows enough to be a pessimist."  He also quoted statistics showing that a very high percentage of the things we worry about are either A) things that never happen, or B)
things over which we have no control anyway.  His point?  Not only do we not have enough information to justify our worries, we also are virtually unable to alter the outcome of most situations.

Our worst fears are generally of the unknown (not enough information).  Our imagination runs wild, conjuring up worst-case scenarios.  We become fearful, anxious, and even overwhelmed - yet the source of our fear is
non-existent (except in our minds). Consider these oft-quoted phrases:

"Think you can - think you can't - either way you're right."
"As a man thinketh, so is he."
"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours."

In other words, by your thoughts alone, you control the outcome.  Although there exist many risks to our peace-of-mind during uncertain times, we still have the ability to pursue our very best hopes and dreams.  We may find that
their achievement requires more effort than usual.  Doubt may creep in. Nevertheless, as you have heard many times, "It's all in your head."
