Whether it be a client, high school acquaintance, business colleague, family member, etc. rarely does a day go by where I don’t get a request for information, a referral or advice. As many of you know, for the last 5 years I have been sporting this #asksethanything hashtag on social media and it has caught on. One of the reasons I chose real estate as a career was for the fact that I saw many in the Great Recession get stuck in a house, make bad decisions and lose lots of money. One of my missions is to make sure the people in my circles make the right decisions and get hooked up with the right people!
It can be daunting at times as I attempt to help as many people as I can. Requests come in all shapes and sizes. Some people want straight up real estate advice. Other want names of contractors. Others need help with their mortgage strategy or an insurance quote.
Often times, I get a prelude to a request to say, “Hey, not sure if this is your expertise…” or “I know you don’t specialize in this, but…” Nonsense. While I don’t specialize in everything, I have spent close to 20 years building a network of people who probably do. Simply put: If I can’t help you, I probably have someone who can.
Therefore, if you should need anything during this time, I want you to reach out so I can get you the answers you seek. I want you to #asksethanything. (Yes, I just referred to myself in the third person) That’s what I’m here for.
Check out this handy dandy info-graphic I created to show what people ask me about on any given day:
Most of these I can handle directly since they are real estate related, but my industry is tied to others such as contractors, insurance, divorce attorneys and mortgage professionals. As I said, if I am unable to give you guidance in a specific area…I can get you hooked up with someone who can! So don’t be shy… go ahead and ask me anything!
