The Not-So-Hidden Talents of Your Real Estate Pro

Sure, you may be able to perform an actual sale on the web, but the extra perks an agent provides simply can’t be replaced by the internet. If you’ve ever worked with a real estate pro before, you know that this process is much more than just a clickable transaction.

Make Your Dreams a Reality

Whether you want to visit the Great Wall of China or start your own business, chances are you’ve got a dream in your life that you’d like to turn into a reality. The hard part is figuring out how to make that happen! With a little inspiration and some direction, it’s possible to translate your dreams into achievable goals.

Last year, I turned my dream of owning my own real estate agency into a reality. Building Lindo Realty Group has required a lot of hard work, but has been worth every minute! In the year and half that we’ve been in business, we’ve welcomed several new and seasoned real estate agents to the LRG team, including my lovely wife, Renee, and celebrated a record number of closings in one month. There is nothing I love more than helping members of the South Shore community buy or sell their homes!

This month, I’m sharing a road map to help you begin your journey. My hope is that this information will leave you hopeful and inspired.

Tips on how to turn your dreams into solid goals:

  1. Visualize Your Dreams – Create a vision board with pictures of what you want to achieve, and glance at it regularly. Don’t worry if your dreams seem far-fetched at first. Dreams require you to do what you’ve never done, to go where you’ve never gone!
  2. Anticipate Obstacles – Think of all the factors that may disrupt your dreams – thoughts such as, “I can’t afford it,” or “The kids schedules are too busy.” As you write your goals, acknowledge your circumstances and plan accordingly.
  3. Set Actionable Goals – Write down steps to help you achieve each goal, like putting away $50 extra per month in a travel fund or getting a passport. Finally, determine by what age or date you will achieve these goals to add urgency.

Best of luck turning your dreams into goals, and goals into results!
