" Our minds, our beliefs and our attitude pave the road to success even in the most uncertain of times.”
We're living in unprecedented times as the situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. Like many of you, I’ve been actively monitoring the developments around the coronavirus. It’s a fluid situation that’s continuously changing. The long-term impact is not yet known, but here are some things we can do as leaders in our communities and industry.
- Present yourself positively in all communications. Remain calm, cool and collected.
- Call older folks, families with young children, or immune suppressed neighbors in your sphere/neighborhood area to ask if they have need of any groceries, drug store or dry-cleaning pickups. Your call will make someone’s day!
- Work on your C2EX endorsement from NAR and Broker certification courses.
- Create a social media group, for example: “Working at home: Corona won’t stop me.” Get people to network and show best practices to make money while working from home. Appeal to your pet-loving sphere by sharing a photo of yourself with your pet(s). Ask them to share a photo showing how happy their pets are to have them at home more.
- Invite someone for a glass of wine or tea/coffee (or lunch!) via FaceTime or Skype.
- Take some time for you! What are some things you’ve been wanting to do? Make a list and get them done.
- Be the positive light for others!
NAR has published its full recommendation for Realtors at https://www.nar.realtor/coronavirus-a-guide-for-realtors, and please remember that whatever changes you make to your business should apply equally to all clients.

Women's Council of REALTORS
Women's Council is about so much more than the monthly events.
As many women as we see working in the real estate industry, that number is NOT matched by the number of women we find in leadership positions. Why not? Women's Council's mission is to provide training, networking, leadership opportunities, confidence building.....ALL the things that will help place more women into leadership positions. We are talking about leadership positions in both the industry AND the community.
When you join a Women's Council Local Network, you also join Women's Council State and National. You are welcome to participate in any Local, State, or National Women's Council event. Also, not only can you volunteer to engage in local leadership, but you will be offered leadership opportunities at the State & National level, as well.
And, there are financial #BENEFITS - the REFERRAL Network; Office Depot Discount card; special prices on hotels, flights, sightseeing trips, tickets to shows and theme parks - just to name a few!!
