At the beginning of the year I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Entreleadership and was inspired by an interview with David Allen. He wrote "Getting Things Done" and, although I have yet to read it, the concepts he discussed on the podcast inspired me to rework how I was keeping all of the areas of my life organized. I created my own version of the Weekly Review based on his discussion and it has been instrumental in keeping me sane. In this video, I explain a bit more about the "how" and "why" of working through my version of this process.

Buying real estate can be extremely emotional. After looking at several homes, you finally put an offer in on one. Truthfully, you probably have already "moved yourself in" to the home in your mind. Then you receive the news that your offer was not accepted.
The best case scenario is that you are presented with a counter offer and can get a better idea of why your offer was not appealing to the seller's. Worst case, you get no feedback. Wouldn't it be better to go into the process with an understanding of why offers to purchase real estate are often rejected?

In our current market in the Denver Metro Area, it is not uncommon to see multiple offer situations on properties priced appropriately for the
When my friend Gavin Higashi asked if he could interview me because I am a positive person, I was flattered and excited to share what I have learned. I think that a lot of people that see those of us that display a positive demeanor sometimes think we are simple, ignorant, lucky, etc. I know that for most people that look on the bright side of life, it is a combination of daily choices and actions...and I would like to share some ideas and links to great resources with you! In addition, I have sprinkled images throughout this post of items I have in my home office and at the end of this post is a bonus song list of mood & mindset altering music I enjoy.
What you consume (in your body and brain), who you surround yourself with, and your daily
You are frustrated in your current position or excitedly searching out a new direction for your life. You watch tons of HGTV and just love houses. You get along with lots of different kinds of people and personalities and don’t mind talking to people you don’t know. Real estate is portrayed as a flexible career with fabulous commissions and a lifestyle that is glamorized in television and movies alike. Before you spend money and time getting your real estate license (the easiest part of the job, and least likely piece to put food on your table), let’s discuss what you need to be prepared for to have a career in real estate.

Every business has start-up costs and on-going costs, plus a lag time before you see the fruit
Not all companies are equal and not all real estate brokerages view the industry (and the world!) the same way. Here are just some of the reasons why agents are drawn to join Peak Realty.
1) The culture of abundance, education, and positive interactions. There are no silos here. While every agent is an independent contractor, and ultimately responsible for the growth of their own business, we purposefully support each other’s learning and growth.
2) Coaching, training and masterminding are built in. Peak Realty keeps a low overhead so that agents can benefit from on site group sessions several times a week, as well as the opportunity to schedule private sessions for more in-depth training on specific areas needed for their business.
