Asheville Homes and LAND!- The Keep In Touch Blog


real estate specialists


I've talked/written about the how focusing on a particular market niche can work for you as a real estate professional. In an earlier post I even asked specialists to tell me your experience and/or expectations about results might be expected  and what really works for you…I wondered about what rewards would show up,and on what levels you found them...

I made a list the other day of real estate specialists. I've added a few since then:
Income properties, condos ,  second/vacation homes,
resort properties, “upscale” properties, luxury residences, new construction,
and those based on demographics— for example, the 55+ set.

Now I'm thinking that in the end it's all about a process for honing in on that particular speciality
works well with you . . .and what YOU yourself prize and value including in your life. SOI began exploring the "how to" of getting there ...and I've found some very direct steps!

  • Step One:
    Take 20 minutes to write down..
    what your favorite things to do ARE…
    (Try to get about 100 or more.)
  • Step Two
    Retrieve your list of 100 Favorite Things to DO
    and prioritize it.
    This should take you about half an hour.

Here is the first section of my example list, prioritized:

1.      Learning new things that interest me
2.      Working on team projects
3.      Creating healthy living spaces
4.      Being part of a group of people interested in quality of life and community
5.      Saving waterfalls and viewsheds
6.      Holding a safe place for tons of $$$$ while having FUN
7.      Exploring back roads
8.      Finding out how I could possibly walk the Appalachian Trail
9.      Sitting around with my friends looking at the sunset from my porch
10.    Walking in nature
11.    Dabbling in writing poetry
12.    Doing HUGE canvases in broad stokes in fast-drying acrylic...

like this one  I created not too long ago 


  • Step 3. Check out this  personality quiz… Maybe the fact that you can find it at “OK CUPID”… 
       will bring the " romance " back in to your real estate practice. =)

janeAnne, have you read "Wishcraft"?  I'm going through the course right now and a lot of this is very familiar . . .

No..haven't read it, Tricia...this is a formula I developed when I owned an executive search firm(1974-1994)  ...we did career management consulting IN THE HI-TECH industry...and this task-oriented exercise seemed to help consolidate career paths for our clients....I call it the "Zen 100" ...Later I used this in a book I wrote (1996) on focusing attention...

I was wondering whether you'd read it or if it was serendipity.  One thing I've learned, though, in my studies of various disciplines and such over the years is that there's a core of techniques that is in most of them because, well, what works, works!  The writing 100 things down fast was the main similarity; Wishcraft has that, as well.  It's mainly, however, about getting past the blocks that keep you from making your wishes come true, and that's part of the technique - the fast part is to keep you from overthinking and throwing out things because you "shouldn't" want/like them or they're "silly" or something.  A learning self-knowledge technique that works really well, for sure!  You might enjoy the book - or, you might find it redundant!
