Myrtle Beach Real Estate by Mirela

Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful... Don't Hate Me Because I'm Still Selling A Lot of Real Estate, Even In This Market!

Remember that Pantene shampoo commercial: "don't hate me because I'm beautiful"?  I should run my own commercial:  "Don't hate me because I'm still selling a lot of Real Estate even in this market!"

True:  I work EVEN more than I did before (I can't believe that is even possible, but, yes, I'm doing it!!)

True:  Even "A Dog With A Bone" like me, loses a deal once and again in this tight market.

True:  I spend HUGE amounts on advertising!

True:  It hurts seeing so many dear friends, agents and builders lose everything they've worked so hard for.  It hurts!

True:  ActiveRain has been a pillar of strength for me, providing education and networking critical to my business.

Awsome tip about WalkScore.com. I am about to begin co-marketing several urban condos and this link could make a very large difference in my presentation

Great title and post.  I'll add those sites to my Favorites.  Btw is that you over there on the skates?  Must be hell on the beach huh? LOL

Thank you, Jason!  This blog came as a response to an agent I was trying to help tonight (from a different brokerage).  She confessed that she is having a very hard time with her finances.  I advised her to implement some of these tools.  I hate seeing veteran agents go down in this market.

I'm actually hell on wheels...  and not just on skates.  We are rollerblading fools...  my kids started skating right after mastering walking.  I must confess:  it is virtually impossible to do what my avatar is doing on the sand.  Just give me a flat surface and watch me roll...
