*If you are not a Real Estate professional please feel free to ignore this post. We are hoping to have a great event, so that we can better serve the state of Oklahoma, so please excuse the cheesy enthusiasm.

Over the last few years I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to learn about the Real Estate industry, but as I’ve learned about housing I’ve also learned some very pivotal lessons about life. I managed a store for a few years after I graduated from college, and I managed a team of teenagers. It could be rewarding, and also very frustrating. I pined for a time when I would have peers who could understand my plight, since I was on an island with no equal, only bosses and subordinates.

Joining the Real Estate industry has been an entirely different experience for a few reasons, but maybe the biggest difference is that I have peers of all ages, creeds, motivations, etc. It has been very rewarding, and collaborative events like this one really call to me after having experienced something a bit different. If you are a Real Estate professional, or you know any, please come or encourage them to come to this event. It takes diligence to keep our market and industry well oiled so that we can better serve Oklahoma.

People do not remember days, they remember moments – Moments Matter! Your verbal and nonverbal communication with customers can make or break consumer loyalty in a split second. That is because customers think more about their experiences with people than they do about products and services. Research shows retaining a consumer or sending him/her off to the competition comes down to the sum of countless interactions between customer and employee.

It’s Pete’s job to create repeat customers in a business environment where you cannot control the level of success on the basketball court (the purchased product), but you can control what happens in the stands (the customer experience).
