  • The Fight Against Hunger

    January 17, 2018

    It’s 2018.

    After decades of moving closer to conquering poverty and hunger, global hunger is on the rise again. There are now 815 million people around the world who do not have enough food to eat, an increase of 38 million from 2016. 

  • Moneyball: The Analysis of a Real Estate Agent

    January 16, 2018

    It's hard not to be romantic about baseball.

    The big names. The stories. Past accomplishments. To get the best players in Major League Baseball you need to pay top dollar as winning teams don’t come cheap. Or can they?

  • Warren’s Corner: Overcoming Urgency and Maximizing ROI

    January 11, 2018

    The holiday season was dominated by articles on 'how to make 2018 the best year it can be'. Whether it was the five top marketing tools for the year or 10 tips to grow your business, everyone looks at year-end as an opportunity for a fresh start. Many of these articles were aggressive on getting people to sign up before year-end so they have a clean slate in 2018. I’m all for New Year’s resolutions, but change doesn’t have to happen at year-end and the urgency I’ve seen in some of these articles may be setting brokerages up for failure.

  • Keep Your Business Resolutions with brokerWOLF

    December 27, 2017

    When I think about business planning I get a similar feeling to that of making New Year’s resolutions…

    Just humor me for a moment. I think we can agree no goal is more deserving of your time and effort than a commitment to bettering yourself. But each year less than 10% of New Year’s resolutions are actually kept! I’d be willing to guess that the percentage of real estate brokerages that stick to their business plan throughout the year is somewhat similar ;).

  • The Changing Landscape of Transaction Management

    December 20, 2017

    Transaction management is at the heart of every real estate deal.  Buyers and sellers sign documents electronically, agents use digital forms, and brokers review submitted deals against a defined checklist for compliance purposes. Each process is a key component of transaction management. There is nothing more important in processing a deal than an efficient transaction management solution.  

    So, how do you ensure reliable transaction management in your brokerage to maximize adoption and efficiency? 

  • The Power of Diagnosing

    December 13, 2017

    You arrive at the doctor’s office. What’s the first thing they say (besides hello)? Normally, they’ll ask you about your symptoms. This may seem simple but what the doc is really doing is using a specific set of questions known as diagnostic questions.

  • I H4TE P@$$W0RD$!

    December 7, 2017

    We’ve all had that dreaded message appear, “Your password has expired, please create a new password.” The IT folks that manage our systems tell us that we can’t use the same password we’ve used before, it must contain special characters, it must x characters in length…ARGH!!! This is extremely frustrating.  Don’t they know that we have better things to spend our time on than remembering passwords and their archaic requirements?  Being one of the aforementioned IT folks, I’d like to give you a few tips to make your life easier and hopefully even more secure.

  • Why I'm Wrong About Christmas

    November 30, 2017

    I remember watching A Christmas Carol as a child and thinking, ‘How could anyone be that selfish?’

    As the years go by, come Christmas time, I find myself getting lost in things that I’ve convinced myself are important. Getting out the Christmas decorations. Jamming Christmas parties into my schedule. Stressing about deciding on what junk I should buy and put under the Christmas tree this year.

    Why? All so I can ‘enjoy’ the holidays and Christmas day.
