Today I’d like to offer condolences to all Floridians and fellow Americans affected by Hurricane Irma. It’s truly amazing how powerful Mother Nature can be. As Floridians, we should all heed the warnings of approaching storms and be diligent in our preparations for the storm and keep safety in mind during and after the storm as well. I’d also like to give thanks to the first responders and volunteers who tirelessly work to restore normalcy.
As the leader of a sales organization, restoring normalcy is critical to the success of our business and the affairs of our Buyer and Seller Customers as our offices were closed for 7 days. Once we opened again, we have to get back to business. We have Sellers who want to sell their homes and Buyers that want to buy and contracts that need to get closed.
Here’s a recap of what I told our staff upon returning. While the effects of this storm are devastating to many it’s not devastating to all. I reminded them that it’s not what happens to us in life that matters, it’s how we choose to react to it that matters. We live in Florida and there are Hurricane seasons every year. Irma was a stern reminder that our area is vulnerable and we should be thankful for all the seasons that we have not been affected. The most important thing we need to do is get out there and talk to our neighbors and see how they fared in the Storm and offer any assistance we can. If anyone reading this needs assistance, please reach out, we have connections to help you get what you need. To our Sales Staff: Now we have a decision to make. We can choose to sit back and say woe is me, business is going to die so I may as well stay in bed, or we can choose to get out there and talk to people and see how we can help. Then I reminded them of the impending economic boom that’s headed to our area. Workers will be increasingly busy and earning more money. These workers will need places to live. In the end it’s really about the choices we make. We’re choosing to be proactive.
