The Colorado Springs Business Journal published an article last week titled Plan B: Roller Coaster of Real Estate Not For Everyone.
For some — especially brokers who have entered the residential market since 2007 — leaving the market at its toughest is not an option.
RE/MAX Properties’ broker Jeremy Isaac became a broker “just as the marketing was tanking.”
While he has watched other new brokers leave after a few months or move laterally to the title insurance or mortgage side of real estate, Isaac has chosen to build his business using the Internet and his strong social networking skills.
Not only does he rely on his wife and business partner who is a successful blogger, but he also is building and expanding client relationships through Facebook, texting and Twitter.
“One good thing is I wasn’t in the market during the boom, so I really don’t know what I was missing. My Plan B, if you want to call it that, was not to have a Plan B.”
Thanks to our clients who have made 2009 a great year for us, despite the market!
