For years I have heard that listings are a Realtor’s lifeblood but so is learning. Our industry changes so fast and often. Make sure you are time blocking for learning!

Good morning everyone! I hope you had an exciting week. It seems like there is business both listings and buyers like the buds on the Bradford Pear Trees in the spring. They are everywhere right now.
I made a trip this week to see our newly expanded Midwest City office this week and basically found out we may have to expand there again shortly. I left the office thinking about what is really doing on there. What I saw was a group of Realtors who have totally embraced the philosophy of “Controlling Their Own Destiny”. There comes an energy that is generated when you find a group of people who totally understand the idea of “Controlling Their Own Destiny” and you find it in that office. I am not saying we do not have energy in our other offices but I am saying there is a difference in that energy. When you are “Controlling Your Own Destiny” #1 You are focused and driven, #2 You feed off the en-ergy of others and #3 You will not be discouraged. You can see the whole office working very well with each other as a team. You also see teams growing and you will see individuals selling at a higher rate. In the last 60 days we also opened a First Mortgage office in the new wing of the office. We have a dynamic young lady by the name of Susan Morgan who is the fulltime Loan Originator now in our Midwest City office. Susan too is growing her business through our business.
I also noticed there was a fairly high percentage of their Realtors in the office. I have always felt that if a Realtor really wants to succeed they need the energy of others they can derive by being in the office and feeding off the energy that comes from being around people who are making their calls and getting Real Estate sold. Having a high percentage of Realtors in the office also charges up those who normally come into the office. It usually makes the consistent Real-tors produce at even a higher rate as they see others putting properties under contract.
As I have always said “if you are not controlling your own destiny then somebody else will be controlling yours.” Someone else will be picking up that office call, someone else will be following up and nailing down that buyer, some-one else will be doing the mailers that get the listings, someone else will be increasing their market share. In effect someone else is controlling your destiny when you do not. I had some one tell me some time back that they knew that I worked a lot of hours. Well when I had a job with a boss for another company they made me put in a lot of hours over there too. The difference is that now I work for myself just like you do at my job. I treat my career just like a job. I make more money now working for myself at my job than I did working for someone else and putting in those hours. I get paid at a much higher per hour rate now than when I worked for someone else as well. I also enjoy my time off and ac-tually may be gone more than you might think I just don’t have to tell anyone. I don’t have to ask off to go fishing or to go to Hot Springs Arkansas. By the way if you have ever been to one of those old bath houses in Hot Springs…it is quite an experience. Call or email me and I will share details not meant for the MMKO. Lake Hamilton is beautiful and if you ever want a quiet get away try the Hamilton House. Fabulous! Sorry I got a little side tracked here.
There is a book titled “Control Your Destiny or Someone Else Will” which was written by Noel M. Tichy and Stratford Sherman which I have read and would love for you to read as well. My wife bought me a Kindle for Christmas and I think I am on like book 12 since I received it. You might ask when does Dan have time to read? Well with a Kindle I can read at an open house, I can read during an inspection or while waiting on the fish to bite at the lake, so there.
The bottom line is “This week commit to spending a certain amount of time in the office. Then work your plan of mak-ing phone calls, emails or follow-ups. You will be surprised when you take control of your destiny what you will ac-complish.
Have a great week everyone. You are the best Realtors in Oklahoma! Dan
