If you asked ten different real estate agents how they get through a market downturn or recession you would probably have quite a few different answers. Not everyone handles adversity the same why.


I was recently asked how Realtors get through a recession and provided my responses in the interview. The key for me as you will see in the interview is not to let up on spending money during tough times. You need to invest back into your business!


This was done by heavily promoting my business on the internet. As the ole saying goes when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Having been in the real estate business for twenty seven years I have been through two very tough down cycles. Take a look at the article and see how I managed to get through it.
