My number 1 real estate agent!

  I love this man!! He truly is amazing!
His career is no doubt one of the most stressful jobs out there. As most of you know being a real estate agent you are self employed, so this means if he doesn’t list a home or find a home for his clients he doesn’t get paid. this is not your average Monday through Friday 8-5 job, no, you have to actually get out there and work or else there is no paycheck! Your mentality has to be strong, and positive, because you will hear tons of “No’s” and rude people who have nothing but bad words coming out of their mouth. Being a real estate agent isn’t easy, there is more behind the sense then his commission you see at the end of the closing. Specially, now, in this market, you have to work twice as hard to find those clients and get them to list with you. Anyway, I can go on and on, but all I want to say is that I am so proud of my amazing husband for his hard work and courage to take on a career like this. Thanks for providing for me and our girlie’s, babe!!
the blue is his pendings and the green are his solds! his goal is to sell 75 homes!
 this pic, of course, was before I cut my hair 😉
PS this was part of our date night. after dinner and a movie (10pm) we went to his office so he can get some papers for his clients ASAP. Talk about dedication!!
This is your agent if you leave in the east bay!
ready for our date night

{Prospecting School in Vegas}

Last week,  Wednesday through Friday, Ray went to Vegas for prospecting school. Prospecting school is an organization made by Mike Ferry where you are with a group of people, each person gets a cubicle and you just call potential clients from 9am-5pm. They call for sale by owners, expireds, and just listed/just sold homes. Ray already does this religiously  Monday through Friday to get new clients, but the cool thing about going to prospecting school is that you can tap into the other persons call and listen in on their conversations and hear how they handle things with potential clients, and how they pursue them to list their home with them.( I think this is so cool, because you listen in to the other persons conversations and get other ideas on how to talk to your potential clients.) Even though its not so much about persuading, but being honest, helping people accomplish their goals to buy or sale, doing your homework and really knowing whats going on in the market. Which Ray is always doing his homework, and he is way on top of everything! He is such a great Real Estate agent! I am not just saying this because he is my husband, but because he really is trust worthy, a hard worker, and he doesn’t stop until he finds you the perfect home for the best deal or sales your home for top dollar! This is Ray’s career, he doesn’t do it part-time, he is fully focused 100% on Real Estate. ( I know I am going a little out of the subject now, but I cant help but to brag a little about my hubby… hehe). Lets put it this way… If you are going to get surgery done, do you want a part-time surgeon to perform the surgery on you or do you want someone who is full-time who does it every single day? It’s kinda like an agent too, do you want someone that does it here and there or someone who knows the market inside and out, since that’s what they do every. single. day. hahaha… I have no clue why I went this far, but I did! OK, so where were we?! Oh, yes… prospecting school! Ray goes to prospecting school about 4 times a year, and there is always different people so you can always get/hear new ideas on how they talk to potential clients. Not only that, but the environment you’re in… everyone there is motivated on calling and getting clients, and you feed off of everyones energy. This is why Ray goes about 4 times a year to prospecting school. Ray is always learning and going to seminars, he wants to be the best agent he can be!

                    Here is two pictures of Ray last week at prospecting school..

 You can see in this picture a guy tapping into Ray’s call and listening in.

{Blackhawk Plaza & Daddy’s Office at J. Rockcliff}

Last week, my sister, the girls and I headed to blackhawk plaza to hang out and feed the ducks. The girls have so much fun there, they love feeding the ducks and playing on the playground. After a nice little time of walking the plaza we headed to Ray’s office which is right next to the plaza. The girls love to go visit daddy at his office, and daddy loves when his little girls come to see him at work!
Ray just hired a new assistant (Lori) to help him out with all the paper work, since he is becoming more and more busy (praise God!). It is such a blessing to see my husbands business grow! I am so excited that Lori will be apart of our team, and she will be in this journey of growing with us! I know we are going to reach the stars! My husband is such a hard worker and very motivated, he is not lazy whatsoever! He is not only determined on reaching his goals, but going beyond them. 
With God all things are possible!  Our success we owe it all to you Lord.
