You’re Only One Person And You Can’t Be Everything For Everyone!

                  Words of Wisdom

Words of wisdom from someone who has BEEN THERE!….

What is the hurry? ….. I find myself getting anxiety thinking that I have to do everything right now while the getting is good. I have to keep this boat rowing with momentum down the river, or actually UP the river it seems most of the time.

I am always looking for the next sale, always looking for the next client or the next listing because there is this fear in me that theses opportunities might not always be here. So I convince myself that what I have to do now is capitalize on everything that comes my way because there is going to be a day when these opportunities are not here and then what am I going to do???

It is this limiting belief mentality that we have in this industry but who taught us this? Is it because of something we experienced on a personal level or is it because this is what our colleges are telling us?

But in all reality what is the hurry? Why do I feel like I have to do it all right now? Be a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend, and team mate, a leader and a million dollar producer all in one? Life is a marathon and if you try to make it a 100 yard dash instead, then we are going to wear ourselves out and it is all going to be for nothing. The consequence will be that we will never be able to look back and enjoy anything that happened along this journey in the last 365 days.

So the question is what is the hurry? I have learned to have faith in myself, in God and in this Universal timing. I trust that when it is going to happen, it’s going to happen. And when it does happen I am going to enjoy every single minute of that moment. I am going to love whatever it is that I’m doing at that moment. But in order to do that I can not accept and play the lead role in everything at once.

Give yourself a break. Despite what we tell ourselves in the mirror every morning we are not super hero’s. I have learned to not accept every client and every listing that comes my way. I choose to only take on things that serve my greatest good and my highest purpose. Life seems to go a little smoother and easier this way. And despite what this competitive industry of limiting belief tells us, trust me, there is more work out there than we would even know what to do with even if we had it.

Choosing to accept clients that energetically align with me has not all together eliminated but has definitely limited the anxiety, chaos, stress, and unmet expectations in my career. The key is to sit back and relax and TRUST that God-This Universe, is going to put in front of you the clients where YOU can make a difference in THEIR lives.

You’re only one person you can’t be everything for everyone and at the young age of 42 🙂 I am finally OK with that. So next time you get worried about where that next sale is coming from ask yourself, “What is the hurry?” Take your time and build a foundation that is unbreakable.

Dream Big!

Just about every dream worth pursuing seems completely impossible when you first have it.
But when you stay focused on it and repeat it to yourself over and over again you start to believe that maybe it could be possible.
So then you learn a little bit and do a little bit and realize you’re closer than you think.
So you learn more and do more and get even a little closer.
Until one day you wake up and realize there is actually a chance of that dream coming true.
And when you look back you realize it wasn’t the result of huge grandiose decisions but of small moves made consistently over a long period of time that made the difference.
And you realize that strategy is universal.
You take take insurmountable odds and disassemble them one step at a time.

Nothing is Ever Wasted

MY THOUGHT OF THE DAY… Who ever you call or refer to as your God, your Higher Source, your Buddha, or your Creator; the one who has all of the power in this universe… that one for me I call “God”.

But no matter what religion you are or what spiritual belief you are congruent with, I truly believe that this universe and the one who created it wants only the greatest of blessing for you. Every dream you have begins with the understanding that you stand firmly in this day as being “Enough”. You are smart enough, talented enough, hungry enough, humble enough, and worthy enough for this dream of yours to become your reality.

Will The New Credit Score System Help You Get A Mortgage

A new bill in Congress could significantly impact your ability to secure a mortgage by changing the way lenders look at credit scores.

In December 2015, two members of the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a new bill. Known as H.R. 4211, or the Credit Score Competition Act, the bill is in its first stage of the legislative process. Although it’s a long way from becoming a law (and your eyes may have glazed over at all that legislative jargon), future homebuyers have good reason to keep an eye on this bill. Proponents say it should help a number of first-time homebuyers compete in the real estate market.

That’s because the bill would push for a new credit-scoring system, one that could potentially allow more buyers to secure funding (and be more competitive in the Portland, OR, real estate market and other challenging markets). But how much will it really help your credit-score rating – and how quickly

Why Do Certain Billings, MT Homes Sell for More Money?

“Aggressive marketing will put more money in your pocket.”

For today’s topic, we are going to explore why some homes in the same area sell faster and for more money than others. There are a lot of factors to pay attention to when selling a home, and here are a few that can greatly affect your home’s value.



For example, maybe a home is at the end of a cul-de-sac in an area with less traffic, or it has a better yard with a better view. It’s something you can’t control, but something you need to keep an eye out for nonetheless when you’re comparing your home to others in the neighborhood.


Now, this is something you can control. It plays an important role in how fast and for how much your home will sell. You can increase your return on investment if you take the time to make sure that when buyers walk through your home, the atmosphere is inviting, and the home smells fresh, clean, and airy. People don’t want to walk into a home with pet odors, so it’s good to neutralize those as well.


An aggressive marketing campaign will get you the maximum exposure to the buyers that are out there and it’s going to put more money in your pocket at the end of the day, which is our goal. We can consult you on what you need to do in order to maximize your marketing.

That’s all we’ve got for you today. If you have any questions for us, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Billings, MT Real Estate Home Security Tips Part II

“Security systems have come a long way in the last 20 years.”

We’re here with Part II of things you can do to prevent a burglar from entering your home. In our previous discussion, we talked about installing a peephole in your door, reinforcing locked doors, and keeping an eye out for open garage doors in your neighborhood. We have a few more tips for you from our security adviser.


In case the unthinkable does happen, the best defense for you and your family is a plan that outlines exactly what to do if an intruder breaks in. If you can, set up a safe room with a cell phone that can be used to call the authorities. If you have children, practice your plan just as you practice fire drills.


Security systems have come a long way in the last 20 years. Systems now have remote viewing access and you can adjust heat, lights, and locks from afar. The security sign itself is a strong deterrent to criminals, and most systems have a panic button that will instantly call the police.


Burglars often prowl neighborhoods looking for homes that appear as if someone has been away for an extended period of time. Set lights, music, and TVs on a timer to make it look like someone is home. Keep newspaper and mail deliveries going, but ask a neighbor to collect them so they don’t pile up on the front porch. You can even ask a trusted neighbor to park in your driveway to make it look like someone is home.

What is the Difference Between a Home Inspection and a Home Appraisal?

“Home inspections are visual inspections.”

Today we are talking about the differences between home inspections and home appraisals, which is a question we’ve received a lot lately. A lot of sellers have asked me about this lately, and want to know how to differentiate between the two.

A home inspector will go over the home from top to bottom to see if there are any glaring defects that need to be addressed with the property. It’s primarily a visual inspection, so they will be looking for any minor cosmetic imperfections or any defects with the property that need to be addressed.

An appraisal is used by a mortgage lender to determine the value of a property. Depending on the type of appraisal, and what type of financing it’s for, you are going to have higher requirements for property condition. However, they won’t be as thorough as a full home inspection.

 for who foots the bill, a home inspection is usually covered on behalf of the buyer to make sure nothing is wrong with the home, and the appraisal is on behalf of the lender, to make sure the amount they are lending is accurate.

Avoid These 3 Common Mistakes for a Smooth New Construction Process

“There are things you can do to ensure a smooth new construction process.”

Are you thinking about buying a new construction home in the Billings, MT area? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Here are three common mistakes to avoid when buying new construction:

  • Failing to hire a real estate professional to represent you: If you are going to court, would you represent yourself? If you have an ailment, would you trust a friend to diagnose you, or would you rather see an expert? A real estate professional will protect your interests when you go to negotiate a new home purchase.
  • Do your research: Some builders simply aren’t reputable; so you can’t pick one without giving it a good deal of thought. There are many ways you can find out which builders are reputable. One of the most important things you can do is find a builder who is going to stand behind their product.
  • Read the fine print: Builder contracts are setup to protect their interests. You need to ensure you are not getting fooled or taken advantage of in the contract stage. Again, working with a good Realtor is a great way to avoid problems with this part of the process.

If you have any questions about buying new construction, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to help you make smart decisions in your marketplace.
