Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a young man. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work.
He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.
Two of the ship's owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer.
He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away.
The engine was fixed! A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for $10,000.
"What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!"
So they wrote the old man a note saying, "Please send us an itemized bill."

Are you low on listing inventory? Even if you’re sales may be cooling in your area, it’s still a sellers’ market. There are several ways for you to generate listing leads and some sellers are actually “advertising” for you to find them.
Contact the CLOSEST For Sale by Owners around your home or office. It will only take a few of them to find 3 that will allow you to come to meet them in person and see their house.
These people are LEADS by definition ... not listing appts. Not buyer sales. They have a house they want to sell. They do not have an Agent representing them... yet. (50-80% of them will hire an Agent before they sell. Probably one they've met in person) AND they publish their contact information. Voila. The perfect trifecta.
Don't worry about the objections or overcoming them. Don't argue with them. Just ask to see the home. Need help with that? Click the video below to watch Mike's free Webinar here.
As we all embrace the start of a more "normal" summer and fall, it’s important to give ourselves room to continue to reemerge at our own pace. It’s also important to remember that new beginnings are not always easy or obvious. I’m reminded of the following story, a valuable metaphor for embracing adversity and new beginnings:
A man found the cocoon of a butterfly. A small opening appeared. The man sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through the little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and could go no farther.
The man decided to help, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that at any moment the wings would expand and the body would contract to the proper proportion.
6 Steps to Secure Your Router Against Cyberattacks
Your personal Wi-Fi network is a prime target for hackers. To protect your and your clients’ private information, beef up your cybersecurity at home. Here’s how.
You’re sitting at a listing appointment. You know in your heart that you can sell this house – it is a great listing and a quick sale. You have sold homes like this before and KNOW HOW to sell this one. But something lately has been missing with fewer listings hitting the current market and many more agents competing for the same listing. Sellers are overlooking you. Why?
After giving your listing presentation your heart sinks when you hear “We have other agents to interview” or, “thank you for your time but we have signed with another agent who we feel is a better fit for us”. Really? You really thought you connected – they kept nodding …
Often, we convince ourselves or have been told success is dependent on how the seller responds to our listing presentation. We focus on emphasizing all our accomplishments and the great value we provide in our service. We’d deliver for the sellers if only they would hire us.
