Hawaii Randy's Real Estate Opinions

To Hire an Assistant or Not Hiring an Assistant, That is the Question.

 Our market appears to be cooling and I have done the unthinkable.  I set a goal of doubling my business in 2007.  Many would call me crazy.  I am still evaluating that myself.

 

My marketing budget has been increased.  The plan in place, but something is missing.  I need another 50 hours a week.  Where will I find it?  My family does not see me enough now.  They will not tolerate my spending any more time away.  Panic begins to set it.  I wrack my brain to find the needed hours.  Should I lower the goal?  NO!    I not yet begun to fight.

As a chess player I know if you have an inferior position you only have a few choices.  I select the least used option... ATTACK!

I need help!

With the market cooling there will be many agents not able to survive.  Some will be great with customers and contracts but may not have the marketing skills to bring in the needed clients. 

I have identified a pool of talent.

The search is on! 

Bishop takes h7 check.   (for all you chess players)

Spam From Other Realtors
