Do you remember the Tootsie Roll Pop commercial from television? The little boy asks

How Many Licks Does it Take to Get to the Tootsie Roll Center?

How Many Licks Does It Take to Get to the Tootsie Roll Center?

Mr. Turtle, “Mr. Turtle, how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop?”  Mr. Turtle says, “I don’t know, ask Mr. Owl.”  The boy takes the tootsie pop to Mr. Owl and asks the same thing. Mr. Owl takes 3 licks and then bites the lollipop. He tells the boy it takes 3 licks to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop.

It reminds me of homebuyers looking at real estate...some people buy the first day they’re out looking at houses, some people take their time, and some never buy at all.

A buyer tells us they are looking for a house to buy. We show them several houses and the first day out they write an offer and buy a house. They’re like Mr. Owl. They do it quickly.

In our current market today some buyers are ready, like Mr. Owl to get to the tootsie roll center and buy that house, however our inventory in many areas is drastically down.  So, there is a shortage of good, clean, affordable properties for sale.

Then, there are buyers that take their time. We look at houses with them and months go by.  They do all their homework and they do it again. We call them.  They’re in no hurry. They eventually call us back and they want to look at more houses. They do eventually buy. They are the ones that savor every lick of the lollipop, until they finally get to the tootsie roll center. 

Some never buy. They’ve got a lot of time to look. They find ways of talking themselves out of buying each house they see, for one reason or another. They talk to friends, and more confusing the decision becomes. Perhaps, they’re not ready to buy. They spend months looking at houses.  They just can’t seem to take the plunge or get off the fence. They’re like Mr. Turtle, they don’t know how long it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop.

So, how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop?

Another Caribbean Cruise out of Port of Miami, Stephanie and Sam

Another Caribbean Cruise out of Port of Miami, Stephanie and Sam

As we plan for another cruise, I go back through my old pictures and enjoy the memories from past cruises.  I found this picture of my girls, Stephanie and Sam, taken in 2006. It’s hard to believe, in looking at them back then,  they are both now taller than I am at 5″9″.  I look up at them.

They were so proud of the braids they got in their hair while visiting Cozumel, Mexico.

A Beautiful in Indialantic at Brevard County Beaches

A Beautiful Day in Indialantic on Brevard County Beaches

After the all of the rain we’ve been having, it seems that we haven’t seen many days of sunshine.  The sun peaks through the clouds where it can. But, the past few days have been different.  The weather is beautiful, sunny and about 87 degrees.  Stopping at the beach was gorgeous.

Today, in real estate it seems that all of the advertising we do has our picture on it. Get

How Old is the Picture on your Business Card?

How Old is the Picture on Your Business Card?

to know our faces by seeing our picture. In time, the customer will begin to feel comfortable with us.  After all, don’t we want people to recognize us, and put a face with a name by looking at our pictures? Isn’t that part of our branding when we advertise? We look at websites and blogs and house listings and agent flyers and business cards with Realtor pictures all day long. We want people to grow accustomed to seeing our warm, smiling, familiar faces.

But, have you ever, finally met a Realtor, after talking to them on the phone or seeing their print advertising for months, and wondered who the person standing in front of you was?  The first thought might be, is this the same person in the pictures?

Well, guess what, this happened to me.  But, I was actually meeting a very old friend that was moving back to the area, and I was the Realtor!  My friend is a bit of a smart butt anyway. He’s always throwing out a funny one liner, always good for a laugh. We hugged, exchanged hellos and as always, I reached out and handed him two of my business cards, one to keep and one to give to a friend.  He did a double take when he looked at the card.  Here it comes, I thought.  “How old were you in this picture?” he asked. 

“What do you mean, how old was I?” I asked.

“You look like you’re 16 years old in this picture,” he said.  I didn’t know if I should take that as a compliment or an insult.

“Do I really look that different?” I asked.

“Well, it’s not really your face that is that different, but your hair is a lot lighter now. ”  True, I thought. Covering that gray hair can be quite the challenge these days.  I had to think about it for a moment.  I realized the picture had been taken about 6 years prior. Wow, how time flies.

I have since changed the picture on my business card a couple of different times. I try my best to keep it up to date, since I am always ordering cards.

But, when I reach a certain age, I may have to stop updating the picture on my cards.
