Our 3 Words for 2012

3 Words for 2012

Happy New Year!!

I’ve been following Chris Brogan’s work for over a year now. I enjoy reading everything he writes, but one of his recurring pieces inspired me to write this post today. He calls the recurring articles “three words” for the upcoming year, and he challenges all of his readers to create their own three words, too. He says…

“I challenge you to dig deeper, to find three words that could be used as lighthouses to guide you through stormy seas, that can be used as flags on the battlefield of your challenges, words that will bolster you and give you a direction that goes beyond the goals you might attach as a result of these words.”

This year, I would like to take Chris Brogan up on his challenge and identify three words to guide The Hill Group and I in 2012.

Our 3 Words for 2012

Resolution - Rather than just helping X number of people buy or sell a home this year, we will help each of our clients find resolutions to their real estate goals. I know we will not be able to help everyone that comes to us to buy or sell a home in 2012. Some may not have the down payment they need, some may not qualify for the short sale they applied for, while others simply may not be ready to move yet. Nevertheless, I’ll bet we can help everyone that comes to us learn about their options and determine what their next step should be, whether that be to buy, sell, or wait.

Connect - We will connect with more people. We will connect more home buyers with homes they love. We will connect more home sellers with the sales statistics they need to know before putting their homes on the market. Want to connect with us? Check out the top of the sidebar on our website.

Invest - Everything we do today is an investment in our future. For a better future, we must make better investments – in our knowledge of real estate, in our relationships with other people, in our local communities. Let us invest in your success in 2012!

Resolution. Connect. Invest.

    Hey Joshua, 

    I like these a lot! Though not everyone may be ready to buy a home this year, you can at least help them move closer to their goals. More knowledge, more preparation, and a plan of action to start saving so that when they’re ready, they’re ready.

      That was exactly my thinking behind our “Resolution” goal, too, Ricardo! Thank you for your comment.
