Nelson Bay Real Estate Secret

by admin on December 26, 2010

Passion Energises Me for Successful Real Estate Transactions

I often get asked how in such a short time I went to the top of the Port Stephens Real Estate market. From my my Nelson Bay office I tallied up that I sell up wards of $50 million worth a property each year and I decided to reflect on the how and I guess this is what I came up with.

“There is a story told about Socrates in which a brave young man supposedly asked, ‘Oh great Socrates, I came to you for knowledge. ‘Socrates led him down to the sea into waist deep water. ‘Tell me again what you want,’ he said. ‘Knowledge.’ Socrates pushed him down under water , holding there for 30 secs. ‘Know, what do you want,’ he said. the young man coughed and spluttered ‘Wisdom, oh great Socrates.’ Again Socrates held his head under water. And again he asked ‘What do you want?’ “Knowledge, oh wise and…’ he managed to spit out again before Socrates held him under again, this time even longer. What do you want?” repeated Socrates,. The younger man coughed and spluttered and gasped. ‘AIR! he shouted.’ I want air!’ socrates replied, ‘When You want knowledge as much as you want air, you’ll get knowledge’.

Bottom line: be passionate.

I have learned in Real Estate if Im going to get the highest sale price for owners in all areas Of Port Stephens, passion is the driving Force.

Well another year behind us and a new year ahead of us. What has your year been like? Do You realise there are more suicides at Christmas than any other time. Sad but true. That reminds me of a story “All the Time in the World
While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground. “That’s my son over there,” she said, pointing to a little boy in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.
“He’s a fine looking boy,” the man said. “That’s my son on the swing in the blue sweater.”
Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son. “What do you say we go, Todd?” Todd pleaded, “Just five more minutes, Dad. Please? Just five more minutes.” The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart’s content. Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his son.
“Time to go now?” Again Todd pleaded, “Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes.” The man smiled and said, “O.K.” “My, you certainly are a patient father,” the woman responded. The man smiled and then said, “My older son Tommy was killed by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike near here. I never spent much time with Tommy and now I’d give anything for just five more minutes with him. I’ve vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd. He thinks he has five more minutes to swing. The truth is, I get Five more minutes to watch him play.”

I love the quote you make a living by what you do and a life by what you give. The most precious gift you can give anyone is your time, your undivided attention and you genuine and sincere love. Now that may sound kind of “soppy” from a Real Estate Agent but I get back to the point about more people committing suicide at Christmas than any other time of year. Guess why? You guess correct, LONELINESS! There is no more of a lonely time than than when you have no family or don’t have close relationships with your family than Christmas. The upside is that you do have a choice. Pain is God’s way of saying something is wrong and if you feel this way you can either feel the pain of the thorns or start to smell the roses. I have put a great clip under neath as an executive summary to this message.

But what does all this have to do with Real Estate you may be asking? Good question! Why do you think people sell? Death, Divorce, Job Relocation, Upsizing, Downsizing, Broke etc. In Port Stephens I see all these situations and am usually dealing with not only the anxiety someone selling their home but the stress of change in their life. The people who make the best of selling or buying are the people who make the best decisions. I have seen patterns that prove there is a direct correlation between people who are proactive in their decision making and high sale prices and people who are reactive and lower sale prices. What’s the difference? Well that’s for another post but my message and point of this is this: focus on what is really important and you will find, that like water, everything finds its own level.

You see the sun has millions of kilowatts of energy, yet with a hat and sunscreen you can block it out yet a with only 12 kw of concentrated energy a laser beam is formed that can cut through a diamond. That is my Christmas message. Focus on what’s important to you and 2011 will bring you everything you deserve. This is Chris Hasson, have a great 2011

In Port Stephens Real Estate there are easy sales and hard sales. This is the moment when a Nelson Bay Real Estate owner at Goverment Rd met the owner of the house they just bought in Plimsol Cl Salamnder Bay. The two property owners stopped for a chat and a photo . I had both homes listed and was happy to see such a great outcome. This i Chris Hasson, have a great Christmas!

It was the day of the domino effect. Pamela has just sold her home at 7 Plimsol and moving up to the country to be with her family and John and Lorraine have just sold their piece Nelson Bay Real Estate appartment in Donald St and looking for a single level home. The stress of houses is settling on the same day can sometimes be an overwhelming experience but David Vinell and Steve Parrott Solicitors worked well together to make the owner and sellers transition seamless. Good luck guys and I hope the next chapter in your life is full of good memories.

On a more personal note I want to say congratulations Olivia on a certificate of excellence at your first year of school. We are proud of you. Until next time, this is Chris Hasson, have a great day.
