When I speak to groups or teach classes about real estate, I often get questions about how to enable a mobile strategy. One of the key ways to do this is actually less about the mobile technology you carry and more about the kind of content you are enabling the
An ancient Chinese proverb reminds us; "To listen well, is as powerful a means of influence as to talk well." While everyone can benefit from this sage advice, these words of wisdom are particularly appropriate for professional salespeople. Would you consider yourself a good listener? Perhaps a more important question might be, how would your customers, business associates, friends and family members rate your listening ability? Their feedback just might surprise you, because most people believe they're much better listeners than they truly are.

The emphasis on video production quality has never been greater. High def and even 3D now bring incredible quality and detail into our viewing experience. But if you think picture quality trumps all, you have a very short memory. ...
Being that the mobile technology landscape is progressing at a pace that rivals the New York minute, I make it a point to try and get as much ”mobile news” as possible on a daily basis to stay on top of things. Recently, I updated my profile with the MMA
A slow economy combined with stricter lending regulations has caused a surplus of homes in the housing market. With many homes sitting on the market for an extended period of time, it is difficult to get your listing noticed. How can you highlight the best features
What are the critical factors that contribute to the retention of top producing salespeople? Why are some sales managers able to consistently recruit and retain quality salespeople, while other managers have a revolving door? Excessive personnel turnover is not only unhealthy for the morale of a sales force, but it is also costly in terms of time and money.
