So How will 2010 bring you change?   3 comments

It’s a cold, snowy day in Wisconsin and I look forward to a change in scenery one day like most do. The snow is beautiful but the icy roads, snow banks, and very cold temperatures lend for a lot of paperworkhomes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyers homes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyersand scheduling to be done in the beginning of the day. As I put the finishing touches on my goals for 2010 I look back at them and question myself if I can really attain such goals and are they realistic. Pretty monumental changes and adjustments are in order and the time is just ticking away until they happen. The curious notion I tend to look at is the fact that I have refined my business goals to really going back to the basics. It’s not so much becoming that more viral connected or how to be in 8 places at once rather than 4, but simplicity is now key. My strength has always been in my phone and one on one. I am one of the regimented real estate agents in Waukesha County that prides himself on not only introducing himself to everyone buthomes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyers more importantly the fact that I want people to rememberhomes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyers my name. My phone is key. It’s not hard to burn up 5,000 minutes a month on a cell phone when it becomes your life line for business.

Recently someone asked me how my Internet campaigns were doing and I replied “Just fine” but I reminded them that nothing will ever replace the human element of knowledge, closing ability, and sales sense that gets buyers and sellers to a successful closing. When you maintain a schedule of calling past, present, as well as potential clients it’s amazing how busy one can get, and keep homes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyersbusy as long as they prospect everyday. How will 2010 bring you change? Is thishomes for sale in waukesha wisconsin,real estate agents in waukesha county,homes for sale in oconomowoc wisconsin,tax credit for first time buyers the year that you buy that one of those homes for sale in Oconomowoc Wisconsin, or one of those homes for sale in Waukesha Wisconsin. Is this the year that you take advantage of the tax credit for first time home buyers, or tax credit for present home homeowners. Whatever change 2010 brings you I hope it is productive, meaningful, and prosperous. Change is good!

Waukesha County real estate: You know you can always call me to ask about starting your Business:The beauty of the SBA   Leave a comment

“You know you can always call me to ask about starting your Waukesha County Business: The beauty of the SBA” Over the years in my career I can honestly say some of the greatest and most rewarding times waukesha county commercial real estate,small business administration,sba,waukesha county business,waukesha county commercial propertywere when I was at a SBA closing and the buy said to me “Thanks for pulling this off for me Tommy, I can’t believe I have my own businesswaukesha county commercial real estate,small business administration,sba,waukesha county business,waukesha county commercial property and building now.” That made me feel so good because the work and the effort that was put into every Small Business Administration process was a joint effort working with some very amazing people; local and government underwriters, helping buyers with their mission statement and business plan, and seeing that smile at closing. God, I love seeing that smile!

waukesha county commercial real estate,small business administration,sba,waukesha county business,waukesha county commercial propertyThe truth is there is SBA money that people have access to. Take a look at Small Business Administration. In distant times a buyer had to tighten the reigns in their usage, but in the last couple of years I have listed and waukesha county commercial real estate,small business administration,sba,waukesha county business,waukesha county commercial propertysold ( many both ends) existing restaurants with the real estate, conversions of buildings into very productive nail salons and spas, lots of businesses large and small of all diferent kinds, and in every transaction it required some pretty serious work, lots of local and state government rules, regulations, and licensing requirements, and much, much more. You know waukesha county commercial real estate,small business administration,sba,waukesha county business,waukesha county commercial propertywhat? I enjoy every minute of it. I get calls from other agents asking me to help them with their transaction. There has not been a time when that did not come back to me in a form of great reward and happiness. Is this the year you are going to own your own business? Is this the year that you will own your own Waukesha County real estate which your business is in? The first step I may suggest is to give me a call and let me answer some questions for you. I have great accountants, tax and corporate lawyers, and many other key players that are waiting to help you as well. Perhaps this is the year for personal growth and the start of your new business after all. Ask me how.
