3 Simple Steps to Be Taken Seriously in Real Estate

Step #1: Be consistent.

Prove to those around you that you are an expert at whatever it is you’re doing. Be consistent in everything you do every day, every month, and every year. The people who will be investing in your future will be looking for a track record of success. Don’t just expect the people you do business with to trust you “out of the blue.” Record what you are doing and prove it to them.

Step #2: Ignore the noise.

Pay no attention to the outsiders trying to tear down what you are building. There are two ways to have the tallest building in town. The first is to build it, and the second is to knock everyone else’s down. The world is out there to knock your building over. Ignore the people seeking our or wishing your failure. Focus on you and your business and let your actions speak louder than your words.

Step #3: Prove them wrong.

Always do the right thing for your business, your investors, and your customers. The more value you give to others, the more value you will receive back from them. The longer you are in business, the longer you will build a track record that offers true value. This simple approach will silence those who said you couldn’t do it.

My whole life, people were telling me I couldn’t do it. They told me I could never be a professional soccer player. I proved them wrong, and at age 18, I played pro soccer in Hong Kong. They told me that because I was a high school dropout with no formal education that I would never succeed in business. Now I have a multi-million dollar company. I certainly proved them wrong — and you can do the same in your business.

How do you prove to naysayers that you’re the real deal?

    Thanks Larry, I appreciate your kind words. I’ll be doing a ton of video blogs this year as my passion can’t be seen in words. It’s much easier expressed via a video hehe Do you have any topics you would like me to do a blog on? Thanks again and have a great day.

    Very insipirational, Engelo! I was also passionate about soccer growing up with dreams of playing professional soccer. I was defeated many times by the naysayers and did not turn that dream into realty. I am now almost 30 and am finally educating myself to become resilient in following my passion. I found real estate two years ago and believe that I can achieve greatness. I would love to see vlogs in creative financing, multi-family strategies and anything tax-related. Sincerely, Oltin Cekani

    Hi Oltin, Thanks for your kind words mate. Don’t let them get to you now. They will always chip away at your nerve and just take it as a compliment because anyone worth it will always have naysayers. Stay tuned for more vlogs. Thanks again and much success
