Harvest Your Crop Now……. Let It Carry You Through The Winter


We should all be networking as much as possible right now to carry us through to the end of the year.  Winter is coming and it’s going to be a long winter.

Via Barbara Todaro (RE/MAX Executive Realty in Franklin, Ma):

Fall is here and that means we have about two months to harvest as many listings as possible.  It’s going to be a long winter, and people will continue to need housing, but with much less demand than we are experiencing now.  I don’t know what you’re experiencing, but the buyers are not waiting in line with numbers to buy homes in Franklin MA. 

This is the time to prospect for business.  This is your last chance to harvest that crop before winter.  The Fall inventory will allow you to continue to market for business throughout the winter months.  If you have the inventory, you can make the phone ring.  There is no more time to waste.  The winter months in New England are difficult enough with just battling the severe weather.  Now we have a tough economy to survive, also.  It’s a double blow and not many are prepared for this challenge. 

I’ve been marketing and diligently blogging for business all year, and the results have been worthwhile.   Lorraine Kuney, my team member, is the #1 agent in the town of Franklin and the #1 listing agent in the town of Franklin for 2010Capturing the best share of the marketplace is a great head start to surviving this winter.

While you’re out apple picking this fall, remember that you’re in the real estate business.  Carry those business cards, wear your real estate badge or casual professional attire and network with as many folks as possible.  Every day is “show time.”  School is in session, and if you have children in school join as many parent organizations as possible.  Give your time to a good cause and you’ll reap some rewards.  Not only will your children benefit from it, but your business may receive the jolt it needs to survive the winter.  Your survival this winter may be a determining factor as to whether you’ll be working in real estate in the spring market.  We have several more years of this horrific economy ahead of us……Give it all you have right now!!!






About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
