Market Update – The Prosperity Pie Is Smaller

Like a little brother, sales are trending just behind last years number.

What this means to you and me and our near future, the prosperity pie is sure to be smaller.  The number of agents who want a piece of the prosperity pie continues to grow larger.

More competition and less opportunity means that we have stay closer to the people in our personal sphere than ever before.

Monthly eMail and direct mail.  Be proactive.  Facebook seventeen minutes a day, click the LIKE button like a maniac, comment.  Meet tomorrow’s buyers at your next Open House.  Sent 4 or 5  randomText Messages a day to people in your sphere – say hello.  Wear your name badge.  Get out and about, rub shoulders, shake hands, give hugs and smile.
