Selling Real Estate... Not as easy as it looks.

Most individuals that believe that a career in Real Estate will be rewarding and most importantly, reap huge returns.  In other words, they believe that they will make a lot of money.  More than in most other professions.

I have been in the Real Estate Profession for 15 years and I have been trying to brand my name, Larry Stanul, in many ways.  Branding is the most important aspect of this industry.  We need our identity to be a household name.  Larry Stanul should be a recognizable and memorable name when Real Estate is discussed and more importantly, when a buyer or seller is at the point of making a move.

In order for me to brand myself, I have used the name, "Larry The ReMax Guy" as my brand.  It has a memorable ring to it due to the movies that have been released over the past decade or more.

Now, when actually making the decision to become a realtor, you need to know that it is going to be a 24/7 career.  One that will take a lot of time, energy and patience. A territory that you want to sell or find buyers in such as Oconomowoc, Delafield or just Lake Country in Waukesha County, which will encompass most of where you wish to market yourself.
 If you remember this, your income potential is unlimited.

Call me today and I will help you to start your career in Real Estate.  Larry Stanul, known as Larry The ReMax Guy.  262-751-1386.  Together we can determine if this career is good for you.

Can you reach new heights in 2015?

It is sometimes very evident that while we think we are achieving our goals, we are merely going through the motions that have gotten us through life to this point.  We never really stretch for that star.  The stars are limitless... so why isn't our achievement? 

In order for any one, including myself, to achieve more than they think they can one must push the envelope.  Stretch to point of breaking.  Success is measured in so many ways and for each of us it is something different.  No matter what makes you feel successful you can reach for that star and achieve so much more than you ever thought possible.

In order for this to happen, you need to think BIG.  Think differently.  Change your paradigm.  Several large corporations put together a goal for their company and decided to hire individuals who were not experienced in the product of service they were trying to market.  They did this so that someone who did not have the blinders of experience restrict their vision.  In other words, lets think about this from an entirely different point of view.  What better way to do this than to hire individuals who did not really know the product or the market the product was trying to reach.  Now, I am not saying that we need to place all of our emphasis on non-experienced people.  Just some of them.  When they add their ideas to the mix, so much more happens with the outcome.  

As an individual once said, if we didn't have new ideas, we would still be driving the Model A Ford.  No need to change it.  It works just fine.  Your watch is another example.  Until the space program, we had 21 jewel watches that were cumbersome, heavy and also needed annual cleaning in order for them to run efficiently.  Now, we never even give our watch a second thought and it is more accurate and more attractive than ever before.

Just how high are you willing to go this coming year.  2015 can be another year just like 2014, or, if you set your mind to it, could be a year that you soar to new heights. 

Trust me... you will be very please with the results.

See you at the top.

Never forget the sacrifice that was and is made on our behalf.  Never!!!

Freedom is not really free.  There was a price to pay and those who continue to put their lives on hold for the safety and beliefs of others is beyond the call of duty.

To all of you who have served.  Past, present and still to serve tomorrow, 
We Salute You!

And for all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, 
You Are Not Forgotten.

Thank you each and every one of you.

2013 Resolution

                               Does Life Get In The Way Of Your Plans???


The title of this blog is from an award winning song by John Lennon.   When you come right down to it, truer words could never be spoken.  Life does in fact get in the way of our plans.

Today is a day like any other.  I am sure that many of you got out of bed and began your day like every other day in your life.  Bathroom stop, think about the days activities, say good morning to family, or in the case of a single person, your pet, or if alone, just meditate on the days coming events.

In my case, I am thinking about an offer that I recently wrote and as with many of my offers, another offer on the same home on the same day is presented to the buyer.  So I find myself biting my nails wondering if I did a good enough job in convincing my client to offer more than my competitor' client did.  Go figure, the market is slow for over a year and homes are sitting for even longer.  My client and I find the perfect home and wouldn't you know it, another offer at the very same moment.

That's Life.   Frank Sinatra made a song very famous talking about it.   Listen to the lyrics of it and you will soon realize that life is full of ups, downs, sideways and maybes.  Yes and no, now or later.

How do you react to the set backs of your life?

This blog today is not to educate.  Not to advise.  Not even to entertain.  No, I am writing this today to talk about life and all that it offers all of us.
As in many of my prior blogs, I write of being positive; glass half full; good attitude and the like.  I am here to remind all of us to get up each and every day with an attitude of happiness.
I am a movie goer and sometimes quote a great line that some other person wrote for the movie to give it that wow factor.  To tug on your emotions and feelings so that you leave the theater with that statement on your mind.  In the ending of Tombstone, Val Kilmer, playing the part of Doc Holiday, tells Wyatt Earp, played by Kurt Russell, that there is no normal life.  There's just life.
You need to find your happiness in whatever that may be.

Don't let life get in the way of your plans today.   Take it one step at a time.  Take everything in stride and choose to be happy.  I find that when I have a good attitude, I make those around me happy too.
Enjoy life.  It's the only one you will ever have.  Make the most of it.    Happiness cannot be found in gold, riches or success.  It is from within.

Have a great day.
