As we prepare to close out 2022, I’d like to offer a brighter perspective for the approaching new year.
A new year brings new beginnings and fresh energy. It’s a time to feel gratitude for your accomplishments and celebrate the small victories you’ve had over the past two historic years of homebuying. It’s also a time to embrace change and evolve. What can you do differently to serve your buyers? How do you make your sellers feel more comfortable in this environment? How can you diversify your business or expand your services?
Rather than run from challenges, this is the moment to lean into them – because you never know when a new avenue of opportunity might be discovered. You may find a niche in your local marketplace that’s being underserviced. You may find that you have to work harder in this new market, but how can you work smarter instead? Brush up on new technologies. Take the time to freshen up your knowledge base by attending seminars and classes. Focus on building your relationships and expanding your personal network. The Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® platform is tailor-made for moments like this. I encourage all of you to take advantage of all of the amazing offerings available to you as a Global Luxury Property Specialist. Exclusive networking events. Special certifications and educational programs. Data-rich reports that you can customize to your market. Social media resources and tools. This is the time to take your business to the next level.
Noam Chomsky had the right idea when he said, “optimism is a strategy for making a better future.” You first have to believe the future can be better before you can take responsibility for the future. By finding the bright spots in the market and keeping a positive outlook, you have the power to make your 2023 better. We can do it together.
