Q: What does it take for change to take place? A: A Burning desire.   Leave a comment

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiJanuary 1st and people are calling me and asking me if I am ready to go back to work next week? Next week? I am already working on it. Someone asked mereal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi if I see great change in 2010 and I was fast to remind them that the change has to first start in me. My beliefs, my core beliefs, my vision, my goals, my passion, my risks; it all starts with me. It starts with a burning desire to make a difference; starting with me. As the year starts I think of some role models that will allow me to reflect at times and see change in myself, the life around me, and real estate for sale in Waukesha County.

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiBeing a Wisconsinite and being one of the Green Bay Packers fan I have a tendency to dwell at timesreal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi about a great coach we had named Vince Lombardi. Coach Lombardi knew what it would take for change; it started with sacrifice, determination, and a burning desire to not be just good at your game, but to be great at your game. It’s fair to say he achieved that! Hard work and dedication pays off; his team would have told you that!

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious”  Vince Lombardi

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiAnother famous resident from Appleton Wisconsin was Harry Houdini. Mr. Houdini set a precedence that many famous magicians today will tell you. He was a role model for never giving up, trying and trying again.real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi He would not give up; even to the end. It goes to show you that when someone tells you you can’t do something maybe it can just make it that much stronger of a conviction to succeed and taste the fruits of your hard work and labor. There are times you have to stand out of the box and take an outside view looking in.

“It is still an open question, however, as to what extent exposure really injures a performer.”  Harry Houdini

It really does not matter what political party you may be part of today; we live in a great country that allows us to make that decision. I did real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardihave a great admiration for Ronald Reagan. He was polite, he was focused, and he knew in his heart he had to take risks, and he did. I admire anyone that can stand up and say no. I hope when I pass away I can be remembered for just being a decent man. I admired him.

“I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.” Ronald Reagan

 

     But in these times I really have a chance to take a step back and reflect on areal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi Presbyterian minister named Fred Rogers ( Mr. Rogers) that one day said he did not like what he saw. He had the guts to say “I don’t like the direction kids are having to see today and I can make a difference. I can make a difference in many lives and I am going to. Mr. Rogers set his goals his way in a very unselfish manner. He always would put others first. He proved that. I wish the world had more people like him. He made a difference.

“How sad it is that we give up on people who are just like us.” Fred Rogers

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!

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.

Move over Tom Braatz, Waukesha County real estate agent; it’s Lars we want to see!   Leave a comment

Another great day in the Waukesha County real estate market and once more Lars kicks it out! Who would have thought that hanging around with a really great search dog/ therapy dog could have such an Waukesha County real estate market,tom braatz real estate agentimpact on my business. Lately this hit home when one of my new foundWaukesha County real estate market,tom braatz real estate agent friends that works in the Oncology department in the new Aurora hospital in Summit said he would talk to his HR connection and see if I could get Lars in there to visit people. I love the thought. Lars is very used to visiting people in isolated care and hospital, as well as retirement facilities so I just smiled at the idea.

 It also resonates when clients call me and say “You and Lars be here about 4:30 so we can go look at the apartment building.” I get tweets on Twitter www.twitter.com/tombraatz and Lars has a city of people following him on Facebook.  The comments on www.Facebook.com/tombraatz  just rock about Lars. Little did I know that such a wonderful dog was great as a branding tool ,and who would of thought of that? Lars, you are a major player, a super closer, and a hand (paw) holder in every transaction. Now, we just have to get to warmer weather. Meanwhile, you just keep on looking dapper and having all those wonderful people relish you. I have no problem following you, because as we musicians say “You are a tough act to follow.!

Allright; that Law of Attraction thing can kick in anytime now!   2 comments

Anyone that works really hard at selling real estate in the Waukesha County market will tell you that everyday they get a reality check, or have to tell a client something, well, sometimes that might not be remax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha countythat easy. Seller: “Why isn’t my home selling?” Straight forward agent: “That’s because I told you we were competing with lots ofremax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha county homes and we are overpriced. In order for the home to sell we need to have all the stars lining up, then we can get to a successful closing.Your home is still very cluttered and the others are immaculate and are set in a stage where the buyer can visualize and get a concept of what the rooms really lend to.” Being positive is crucial in Waukesha County real estate, and being realistic is ever so important.

I see everyday three factors that can hurt a market; The correct pricing of a home, the presence and condition of the home, and the need for both parties of a transaction, and agents, to workremax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha county in harmony. Always pulling positive thought into the circle, and putting positive thoughts out there goes without saying it can help like crazy. Sometimes killing something with kindness will get you far. Not that I feel like I need to be the obsequious one, but you get what I mean. I can tell you one thing, constant negativism and putting lots of bad thoughts and scenarios has the same draw remax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha countyas the good ones. Make no mistake about it; you can create a self defeating prophecy even before you get going at something. It took a long time to figure out exactly how to use ActiveRain to it’s true potential, but it certainly pays off now. Happy sellers and buyers, leads like no tomorrow, and aremax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha countylearning process from some great agents and mentors in the www.activerain.com sector that I truly look up to.

There’s an old joke, and kind of crude but it sheds light: A woman is having a hard time figuring out what to give her kids for Christmas, one remax real estate waukesha oconomowoc waukesha countyis a pessimist and the other an optimist. Here friend the psychologist suggests she asks the pessimist what he wants and give it to the optimist, and ask the optimist what he wants and give it to the pessimist. When asked the optimist says “Mom it’s hard this year, but maybe a new bike?” The pessimist says “I don’t care, a bag of crap for all I care.” Come Christmas morning the pessimist is saying “A bike? Great, now I am really going to hurt myself!” Meanwhile, the optimist is digging thru the bag and throwing manure everywhere. “Son, what are you doing,?” asks the mom to which the optimist replies “Mom, there is bound to be a pony somewhere in this bag.”
