What do Wednesdays have to do with Montreal Real Estate?
Nothing really… Except that as real estate brokers, we work 7 days a week. At least I do. We are constantly busy and don’t get the weekend to relax and re-charge the batteries. So when Wednesday rolls along, a little extra motivational thought doesn’t hurt.
So on this Wednesday morning, my motivational thoughts are regarding the people who surround you. The saying says: If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room. I also believe that if you are not surrounded by the right people, your productivity will decrease. Success depends not only on your will to succeed but also on being surrounded by the right people, people who clap when you win, people who encourage you, inspire you and motivate you. They can be real everyday people you see and they can also be virtual people and leaders you follow on social media.
Earlier this year, I took a big risk in my line of work in Montreal Real Estate. I was faced with people who discouraged me, rained on my parade, tried to convince me that I wouldn’t succeed. Wow. What they didn’t realize is that I had already succeeded. I didn’t listen. And thank goodness for that. People will try to discourage you because of their own fears, because of their own failures, because they don’t want to see you do well. Don’t listen to anyone. No risk, no reward!
Montreal Real Estate is a great business to be in. As a real estate broker, I have had the opportunity to meet incredible people and take my career to the next level. I never looked back. I keep moving forward. I have worked all over the great city of Montreal, Up North and off-island.
Lately, business has been steering me to Old Montreal, Downtown Montreal, Griffintown and the Sud-Ouest. These markets are incredible, with gorgeous and unique properties, amazing businesses and fabulous residents. Will I be focusing the next chapter of this career in these locations? Perhaps! Location, location, location!!
