July has somehow slipped by and we are now in the home stretch to the holidays! Wow, doesn’t it seem odd to be thinking about kids going back to school and cooler weather?!
As usual our staff has been diligently working on several different projects including the Friends of the Flag Golf Tournament, Stand Up For Students events, and a blood drive. We are working on the steps moving toward the MLS Consolidation and will keep you updated as we continue to go through the process.
Want to get more involved in your association? We are looking for members interested in running for office for 2019. This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and help move our Association in the right direction. Contact staff or the leadership team to talk about how you can be a part of your Association leadership.
We are in the 3rd quarter of 2018! Everyone should be thinking about their business and how to finish the year strong. You may even be thinking about what your business will look like in 2019.
Real estate is simple at times. However, it can also be very overwhelming. It's especially challenging if you don't have a plan for your business. Real estate is all about building and nurturing relationships. At the core, it’s a high contact and high touch career. The highest producing Realtors are hustling constantly. Just like long distance running, you have to keep a consistent and steady pace. Closing a few deals makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. The catch is to keep closing deals. A perspective client isn't going to pass you up because you are too young or too new. Instead, clients may overlook an agent because of their lack of confidence. You have to be sure of yourself and where you are going. There’s a ton of advice on the best way to grow your business. It’s important to figure out what works best for you. One of the most important steps in running a business is to set goals - they need to be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time based. I also believe they should be reviewed and adjusted throughout the year. What do you want to do both personally and in your career/business? Goals help you develop purpose in your daily activities and give you a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day! One of my favorite quotes is “A goal is a dream with a deadline!” Napoleon Hill.
Will you set goals for 2019 both personally and professionally? Will you make it a goal to become more involved in our association? Being a part of the conversation is going to help you and help the Association stay relevant in the Great Falls real estate industry. We need both new and experienced members!
Make it a great August! Hope to see you at the Thursday morning meetings and at the membership luncheon in September!
