287: Business Update March 2023


Real Estate Business News

Business is going great! I have a settlement, and I’ve had a few deals under contract in February. Business is picking up again as I mentioned in my January update. People seem ready to buy houses again. I’ve had some clients looking at homes and am thankful for team members that are helping with clients there while we’re in Florida. I have a settlement this Friday that will close; I think that’s my third, or maybe fourth deal of the year so far—so that’s really good. Our primary residence, which was listed, is under contract and will settle March 17th, so we’re excited about that. I’m really pumped to see where real estate goes as the spring market gets started and as we move into the summer. Once our home sells, we’ll have a lot of financial flexibility. We’re not sure if that will be a rental, or an Airbnb—we’re processing and praying through a few different things, trying to make the best decision.

Community for Realtors

Things are still going great with the podcast and membership. I’m very thankful for everyone on the calls. We’ve had a lot of great Monday calls. If you’re ever interested in what we’re doing on those calls, feel free to let me know—I’d be happy to have you check it out for a couple of weeks and see if it could be a fit. Absolutely no pressure at all. I just want to help you in your real estate business and help you have success. As for the podcast, we won’t have any interviews for a couple of weeks. They take a lot more work and time than a regular episode, and since we’re in Florida, I want to take some time and enjoy my family. I love bringing them to you, but just don’t have time for the work they take for a few weeks while we’re here and with the TLF retreats coming up. There will be some great ones coming back in March. We’ve been having a blast here and this past week was the first TLF retreat in Bradenton, Florida. The great thing about what I do is that I’m basically able to do all the work here that I did from home. I’m still recording podcasts, still doing social media stuff for our team, still doing my membership and coaching calls—I can do it all from our Airbnb. We’re really learning a lot about freedom this month—building more freedom in our business and in our lives. It’s been great.

On the Home Front

Our family has been having a great time here in Florida. We’ve been in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater/Tampa area and are having a great time exploring. We even got to see part of the Philly spring training. My sister came to town this past weekend and we’ve had a great time. I’m excited about my in-laws coming down for a week and then my dad coming down in a couple of weeks. We’re going to have some fun family time, while still doing the stuff I need to business-wise from here. It’s been a blast so far and things are good. I had a great time at a TLF retreat last week and there’s another one coming up this week. We have about three weeks left before we check out of the Airbnb and head home. I’m just excited to enjoy the flexibility that I have to be here in Florida, enjoying time with my family.
