For the last couple of weeks when I have been asked about the 2014 Real Estate Market my answer has been "I am not scared but I am disappointed". We have enough business going on in the offices that we are putting some money in the bank but we thought it would be much better. When I look at some of the individual numbers in the office I imagine some of you are both disappointed and scared. Love me or hate me I need to be the one to tell you it is not the time to be sitting on your ass feeling sorry for yourself. Numbers are down in our competitors offices as well but there is business out there and if it is not coming your way you need to go get it , the year is almost half over. Floor Duty has been very active in Germantown and Aspen Hill yet the floor sheets are only 30%-40% full. I sat on an open house yesterday (because we could not get anyone in the offices to do it) that 12 groups came through, got a great listing lead. To dumb this business down to it's simplest form, it is a "Contact Sport" and we need to be the aggressor. This would be a great time to review your business plan to make sure it matches your income expectations.
Enjoy the coffee,
