Drones are really taking off!

You’ve heard about them. You’ve read about them. You’ve probably even seen one buzzing around your neighborhood.

I’m talking about drones, and they’re just about everywhere!

Did you know drones are really making a splash in the real estate market? In fact, it’s one of the fastest growing segments of the drone industry.

Using small drones with very high-end cameras, real estate agents are able to take great pictures, beautiful video, and even fly them inside of a house.

Maybe the curb appeal of your house isn’t as high as you’d like, but it’s in a great neighborhood? You can show potential buyers just how close you are to restaurants and entertainment, or to the highway or train station.

You can show just how expansive the yard is, or see the whole house in one beautiful aerial shot.

All of these things can help you sell a property faster, and potentially, for a higher price.

A good entry-level drone costs anywhere between $500 and $1,500; and a professional-level one can set you back more than $5,000.

You can also hire great drone pilots in your area who are licensed and insured.

The bottom line: Drones for real estate are really…. taking off!

One Thing. One Person.


Today we jump back in “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. I really like this week’s point on having just one thing, but also just one person.

We all do a lot of things that can clutter our focus. If we really sit and think about what our one thing is, it may surprise us to realize what it is compared to what we do every day. This is why we need that other person. If we have another person who is also focused on the one thing we can keep each other aligned. We can catch each other when we get distracted. We can bring each other back on track when needed.

I think if we really define what our true one thing is, then we can start taking the right steps to focus on our one thing. Then, and only then, will we start to see the results we're looking for. Have a great week!

Success is Built on Relationships


I bet mail arrives in your mailbox six days a week. That's what the postal service does. Nothing more, nothing less. There isn't anything special about the arrangement.

Do you remember Fred the mailman from The Fred Factor? Something obviously made him different - so different that Mark Sanborn decided to write about him and even teach what he calls the Fred principals.

Today we learn that what made Fred different was one simple thing - the relationship. Fred knew he was making a positive difference and it was fulfilling to him. Fred is proof that in any job or business, relationship building is the most important objective because the quality of the relationship determines the quality of the product or service.
