Real Estate Jobs in Kansas City and 2013 Trends

Right now may be the best time to get a real estate job in Kansas City.

Have you ever hear the term, “It’s all in the timing?” Timing plays a big role in those who succeed and those who wait.

Let me introduce you to the three main types of people in this world:

  1. Those who “Do”. These are the first to act, they take calculated risks when presented with all the facts, but also reap the majority of the rewards. They seem like magical fortune tellers. If you ask them how they do it their answers are simple, “All the indicators pointed in a particular direction and history indicated that the next ‘big’ thing was about to happen.”
  2. Those who “Watch and Wonder”. These individuals are on the sidelines watching those who “Do”. They often have the same information presented to them, but due to either fear or lack of understanding they fail to take action. So they stand on the sideline wondering what happened and how those who “Do” knew it would be a slam dunk.
  3. Those who have no clue. These individuals are completely out of the loop and are not even aware that there was an opportunity. They are content in their current situation and have no desire to change their status. They are often heard saying things like “Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees” or “Slow and Steady” or “Get a good job and work hard”
