Unlike many of my posts, this one is pretty short, sweet, and straight to the point. 

We have seen some significant changes in the lives of agents we coach and train at the Seniors Real Estate Institute. And while I would love to take credit for all to cool things happening for them in their personal and professional lives, I must say this about these particular individuals ... THEY ALL CHOSE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Today I decided to write this very free-flowing blog post today because it is the end of August and I am feeling a bit tired (but accomplished). Most of our SREI members know that I stay fairly busy and that I get a lot done in short amounts of time.

Frankly, I don’t sit idle much! I frequently get asked by people how it is that I seem to get the results I get concerning sales, coaching clients, personal fitness, etc. and I usually just turn it around and say something like, “You can do it too with some focus and intention.”

Something came up on a call yesterday that sparked my attention… again. I humbly choose to share it here with you today.

We consistently hear people say that Success in Seniors Real Estate is "the best real estate class" they have ever taken. When people say that, I just politely appreciate them and move on. Or, I may ask them to reframe it by saying, “You mean the best real estate class about working with seniors that you have ever taken, right?”

Do You Love Houses or People?

Posted by: Nikki Buckelew

I never really understood real estate agents who started a real estate sales business because they "love houses."

The truth of it is that I wouldn’t prefer to live in many of the homes we list and sell. Especially custom homes. Custom homes are literally designed for the people who built them. Spec homes are at least built to appeal to the vast majority. It’s much easier to like those.
