Man vs Machine - Big Data & Where It's Going in Real Estate - Monday Mantra Motivational

Big Data is pervasive in all industries, I have always been someone who embraces change, so I’m a fan of the recent surge of data driven applications, but there is a dark side and it’s important to not get lost in it… 

So, let’s get to it.  Information about real estate is now available to ALL people.  There is a tidal wave of it (Remine, Property Radar, Inman, etc).  People can find it ALL on their own.  So, where does that leave us?  Will we (Man) be obsolete in real estate?  The answer is, YES, BUT it will ONLY replace us if we sit back and let it.  If we look at Big Data as a tool that can help us provide extra service to our clients, it will only help us.

When everyone runs in one direction, I tend to run in the other.  You need to embrace the change with the machine that is Big Data and spin it to your advantage.  Old school is the New School.  The most important thing you can do is form genuine relationships and keep them.  What it comes down to is, PEOPLE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE and will always choose them over a machine.  Be that person your client wants.

Courage is a Love Affair with the Unknown - Monday Mantra

I was in a meeting over the weekend and I heard this phrase "Courage is a love affair with the unknown" and it really, really resonated with me. If everything in life was a dead cert what a boring life this would be. I have always bought massively into the theory that life is all about the journey and not the destination and this phrase perfectly galvanizes the ethos.

In the mantra I cover a great deal of ground talking about strategies, theories and a whole host of other information. Mantra, for me, has become a great way to klick off the week and make sure I slam into it head on with all the gusto I can muster. So strap in, thanks for joining me, you coming along for the ride just means the world an so I thank you for your eyes, your ears and for being part of the rebellion.

Cheers
