Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have. The colors of Fall remind me of what I’m thankful for. I’m thankful that this industry affords us as REALTORS® an opportunity to help people in so many ways. We have an impact not only in our daily transactions/interactions with our fellow REALTORS® and Affiliates, but also in our community.
We want everyone to have a HOME in our community, right? It's why we chose this profession. How do we make that happen? Communicating in a positive manner is key. What is our message to each other, to our community, and to our clients/customers? The message we send out should include how wonderful Great Falls is (even to those that already live here)! As REALTORS® and Affiliates in this industry we are tasked to not only raise awareness about what are challenges/concerns in our community, but also to emphasize the attributes of Great Falls. There is always a way to spin a negative into a positive. It’s all in the choice of words, tone of voice, body language and facial expression. As REALTORS® we don’t tell a client what house to buy or when to sell (there are times we would like to I’m sure). We help them find the “right” home within their budget without stretching themselves too thin. We show a seller how they can make their home better so it sells for top dollar. We guide them. Likewise, we can help guide the way in which people view Great Falls. We can change it one home and neighborhood at a time.
Will you give be the kind word or smile that someone might need today? Be kind to one another, be professional and most of all be happy about the profession you have chosen and the community you live in!
