John M. Holland's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:19 AM

1. Say what you are going to do and then do it.

 

2. Communicate. Frequent, honest communication builds trust. 

 

3. Make good decisions.

 

4. Value long term relationships more than short term success.

 

5. Focus more on your core principles and customer loyalty than short term commissions and profits.

 

6. Trust generates commitment; commitment fosters teamwork; and teamwork delivers results.

 

7. Be honest.

 

8. Become a coach. Guide people, help them be better and you will earn their trust.

 

9. Show people you care about them.

 

10. Always do the right thing. We trust those who live, walk and work with integrity.

 

11. When you don’t do the right thing, admit it. Be transparent, authentic and willing to share your mistakes and faults.

Sellers no longer sitting pretty

Sellers no longer sitting pretty | Real Estate Topics | Scoop.it
As more inventory hits the housing market and buyers rebel against rising home prices, the real estate market is likely to shift from seller dominance to one that is more counterbalanced by buyer reluctance to acquire homes deemed too expensive.
Kathy Rester Fisher's insight:

As of right now, my area of North Texas (Wise County) is not seeing this problem. Inventory is still extremely low in all price points. NOW is the time to list if you are thinking about it and to begin the looking process. IF you are a buyer, have all of your finances in order and your PREAPPROVAL done, so you can be ready to write the offer up just as soon as you find the place. Contact ME and lets get started.
