It sure feels really great to represent such a supportive local real estate group like Gateway. Here I share with you the benefits from working with a tight knit real estate group…I’m constantly urged to participate in community events, explore this lovely town of Vail to feel better acquainted and continuing my higher education in the real estate industry.
Just last week I was invited by my work affiliates to attend a Vail Board of Realtors monthly meeting highlighting the infamous Mr. Jack Cotton Jr as he shares his involvement in the real estate industry. Walking into the Donovan Pavilion in sunny Vail Valley I was greeted by local community members all sharing authentic interest in the real estate market here and yearning creative tools in acquiring more positive business. This is a warm welcome; although I do not know many of these smiling faces I am sweetly invited into the busy buzzing world of the most prominent Vail Valley realtors.
Mr. Jack Cotton Jr. an esteemed well versed entrepreneur began Cotton Real Estate in his college dorm room back in his academic days. Jack is a well-read man, clearly aware of his appearance he dresses to impress. And not in a cheesy way but in an honest clean appearance making it his staple to always be wearing a tie! He shares that physical presentation plays a huge role in meeting potential clients, not to mention being in tune to personal pride for what you represent – represents you. Which I completely agree with! Come on, haven’t we all had ‘one of those days’ where we’re feeling crumby and don’t change out of sweatpants? Why is that? Well usually our inner emotions and feelings have a way of making debut on our physical appearance… take stock of this note and maybe the next time you’re feeling not so yourself try throwing on that slick blazer, or a fun shade of lipstick. Sometimes that’s just enough pick me up to make it through the day!
Intrigued at the wisdom Jack shares I grab my pen to begin taking notes, inspired I feel listening to the words of a man who has written books to share his many stories…. Jack shares his tools for negotiation skills with clients in the real estate community. As my pages fill up I am recognizing that these aren’t just tips for the real estate trade these are life lessons, this wise man is sharing his legacy which doesn’t only come from orchestrating business but how you lead your life. Small adjustments I am constantly aware of making will aid in the fine tuning of a beneficial fulfilling life. I believe there is little separation between how ones lead their ‘work life’ and ‘home life’… for if we live as genuine beings there is no separation…all is honest, all is pure.
Please, if you have any questions or inquires give Gateway Real Estate a call or come on into our Vail Valley OR Edwards Riverwalk location to meet with our exceptional brokers…who I feel mirror the positive, productive traits of people you ought to know, not just realtors.
