Success

The meaning of success is subjective. That which makes one person feel successful may or may not make someone else feel successful. What makes me successful comes directly from my belief system, my dreams and goals. What makes you successful comes from the fulfillment of goals you set for yourself. Success is not an outward accomplishment, but rather an inner one.


On the surface, the millionaire who lives in a mansion and owns every toy imaginable is much more successful than the guy who lives in a 1 bedroom coop and gets from point A to point B on a bicycle. But when we lift the covers of that public image, the guy that lives in the coop may have everything he needs in order to be happy, while the millionaire may lack the one ingredient that may make him feel fulfilled and therefore tries to compensate for that missing ingredient with material things. Success is subjective.


Why am I writing about this on my real estate blog? Well, because real estate is one of those factors that is used by many as a measure of their success. People with large real estate portfolios are often viewed by society as huge success stories. People who rent a bargain apartment are often viewed by society as mediocre. But it has been my experience that real estate, much like success, is subjective. I’ve met people who have lived in small, rented studios apartments for years and they are completely satisfied with their life. I’ve also met people who own mansions and lots of real estate investments and they live a miserable life.


Today I want to talk about why I, as a successful Realtor will never judge the way anyone chooses to live if they are living in the residence of their choice. When I went into real estate, I did because I wanted to be a very successful Realtor. Interesting enough, as time went by and I became a more proficient professional, my idea of success in real estate changed. If you would have asked me what a successful Realtor is when I first started in the business, I would have told you it is the Realtor who makes the most money and sells the biggest properties in the industry. I would have told you that the most successful agent in my eyes is the one that drives a luxury car, lives in a luxury home, lives a luxury lifestyle and has a bank account with many a cash pile that has many zeros following the first number. Today, my view of a successful agent is much different.


I learned as a Realtor that my success (remember success is subjective) had a lot more to do with how I helped a client than how much money I made off the deal. My success has a lot more to do with the service I provide than with the money my client pays me. See, I saw very early in my career that those who chased business on the basis of how much commission they could make off of one deal would fail in the business. Meanwhile those professionals who focused on providing the highest level of service regardless of the amount of commission they would be earning had a much more successful career.


This matters because when you take care of your clients, and strive to provide the highest level of service possible, you inevitably base your success on helping others meet their idea of success. So whether my clients are hoping to rent a small economy apartment, or my clients want to sell or buy a multi-million dollar investment property, my success relies on my ability to meet their needs.


So when I entered this business, I had dreams of being a billionaire salesperson in a year (not quite but you get what I mean). Today, more than a decade later, I am focused on creating life changing relationships with my clients, helping them meet their needs with the least amount of stress, and in turn, establishing a solid, reputable, respectable and profitable real estate practice. That is my definition of success in my business, and it is what has made my business better for my clients, my team members, the industry and me.


What is your idea of success?
