Hello all,


We have been talking about the 2014 Real Estate Market, disappointments, changes and problems it has brought. This will be the last I will be talking about it in my coffee and moving forward we will be focusing on the future and preparing for 2015. Lisa and I have had the pleasure of being coached by Tom Ferry personally (she won a contest) for a couple of sessions in September. What he is hearing from all of the top agents and prognosticators is the 2013 Real Estate Market was an "Anomaly". Not so much that 2014 was so bad but 2013 was a lot better then it should have been which led everyone to believe that 2014 was going to be that much better. So the bottom line is the market is taking a step backwards to 2012 and this market appears to be the new normal for the foreseeable future. Are focus really needs to be how to succeed in this market, not worry about what we can't control and work harder then our  competition.

Speaking of working hard and it is a pet peeve... It is difficult for me to see open house requests go unanswered when some of you are not having the year you were hoping for. Buyers are Gold right now and if you need them you should be doing 2 open houses per month.   

Enjoy the coffee,

Monday Morning Coffee
"Your imagination is the preview to life's coming attractions." 
~ Albert Einstein
Do you believe Orville & Wilbur were first to fly because they had a hammer, nails and a free weekend? Think the television was created by accident? Did Bill Gates just stumble upon the software code that has changed the world? Not a chance!
The Wright brothers created the previews of their first flight in the theatre of their minds. Naturally, there were no limitations to their imaginings as they dreamed of flying. Who knows how the dream of television became reality . . . how it was transformed from a mere visualization into vacuum tubes, knobs, and channels?
What went through Bill Gates' mind prior to his early experiments? Surely his first visions were not of a colorful package entitled "Windows 2000." Nevertheless, his vivid imagination took us all from the concept of "1's" and "0's" to today's monumentally complex world of computer software and internet browsers.
What about you? What goes on in your mind's eye while no one is looking? What do you see yourself doing in one, three, or five years? Do you hear a special future beckoning you to create an action thriller from the previews running through your imagination? Is there a stirring inside you that begs to be brought to fruition?
Why not grab some popcorn, a soft drink, and settle quietly into your favorite chair to enjoy the previews of your own imagination? Then, with a clear picture fresh in your mind, create the main attraction - your life!
