    How I made $850,000 without the hustle

    Hustle and grind – both terms we use a lot in the real estate industry to describe how much hard work is needed to be successful. But what if I told you there’s a source of revenue sitting right under your nose that will generate not only an impressive income stream, but deliver a substantial windfall when it comes time to cash in. …

    The real estate revolution is gaining pace

    Major change is rarely an overnight event. It takes a great idea, time, and the ability to bring others on board with your infectious enthusiasm.

Of course, change is also resisted by some – people whose established income streams rely on maintaining the status quo will not only repel change, …

    How to beat out the competition when winning listings

    We are in a market where agents complain constantly about a lack of listings. Buyers are sheep-dogging over the top of each other to make first offers on a limited number of available properties. This means the struggle is not selling, but rather getting the stock on your books in the first place – and you are competing directly with every agent in your area to secure those vendors. …

    Why ‘work/life balance’ is a myth

    I think the most overused and misunderstood maxim is “work-life balance”. Work-life balance became trendy throughout the 1970s and ’80s in the US and UK and emigrated across the globe. It’s a catchy idea that you should learn to equally share your time between your professional and private life in order to establish a form of balanced sanity. To me, it suggests that work and home life are at separate ends of the seesaw – totally unrelated except for the fact that what time and energy you devote to one, …
