Something to Ponder this Week
There is a cause-and-effect relationship between your actions and the rewards that accrue to you. When you put more of yourself into your career, you personal relationships, your religious faith, and any other aspect of your life, you get more out of it. If your ambitions are greater than simply “getting by” in life, you will never be truly happy with your company, your job, or yourself unless you do your best everyday. Your harshest critic and your toughest competitor should be you.

Listing Agent Skills: 6 Areas You Should Polish
There are 6 areas/ skills you should be working on continuously to be the best Century 21 agent out there.
How is your pre-listing system? Do you have a client intake system which then initiates a “pre-listing” packet followed by a CMA and listing presentation.
If you answered “no” to any of these, then you are not systematized. I would maybe suggest that you learn Toolkit CMA and learn how to manipulate “pre-listing” presentations and comparative market analyses.
