The challenge with the real estate business is that often when you work the hardest is when you get paid the least. In real estate you don't get paid when you call a client, you don't get paid when you list a house, you don't get paid when you do a mailout, you don't get paid when you work on your marketing, and you don't get paid when you do CMA's.

Denise has a wide variety of tips for exactly how you can get started with home/office organization, video marketing, geographical farming, learning technology and keeping connected with your prospects and clients.

Denise has got some great pointers and ways to shield yourself from the negativity that can K.O. your mojo.
Most people are conformists, not contrarians. When we're children, society drills it into our heads to "fit in," "follow the crowd," and "avoid making waves."

Being a contrarian is your key to big money because it helps you to stand out from the crowd, which is much more important than fitting in.

So what is it they know that is making them successful? Watch Denise Lones as she takes a look at what makes a real estate agent successful.
