Even if you are not a college basketball fan, you cannot avoid hearing about “March Madness!” The NCAA Men’s Division I basketball tournament is comprised of 32 teams and through single elimination, narrows the field down to “The Final Four” eventually naming the National Champion!
The “madness” part refers to the tradition, the excitement, the opportunity and the upsets! Just this weekend, the 15th ranked Lehigh stunned the world in an upset by beating the #2 Duke Blue Devils! Many more “Cinderella teams” have their opportunity to shine before a National Champion is crowned this year when the “Final Four” begins in New Orleans March 31st! The excitement lies in the fact that regardless of the past, regardless of records, regardless of expectations, regardless of previous experience, any team can win on any given day!
The same is true for you and your real estate business! You can list any property, sell any buyer, close any transaction! Nothing can hold you back, other than the only limitations you place on yourself! Want to start listing short sales? Get RealValuator and find out who the people are who need your help and go help them! They will never know that you have never listed a short sale before as long as you don’t tell them! Want to work with a Buyer looking for a home above $500,000? Find some properties in that price range and above to market and those buyers will come to you! They won’t know that this will be your first deal in this price range … unless you tell them!
Your energy precedes you! Others can sense your confidence and professionalism without your having to “prove” yourself to them! Sometimes you have to “fake it ’til you make it” and the results will be worth it! The only time your potential clients will ask you “Have you worked in this price range before?” or “How many short sales have you listed?” is when you come across as hesitant, unsure or scared! Your job is to help others and our job is to help you help others!
Be the “Cinderella agent” and go for own championship… enjoy your own “March Madness” and know that we are here to cheer you on!!!! (You and the Carolina Tarheels! 😉 )
