I was fortunate to have couple of closing at the end of December.
It not only assured my family a very Merry Christmas, it also allowed me to make some investments in my business:
1. Global Positioning system (GPS): Garmin Nuvi 260
I love it. It gives me so much confidence. There is enough anxiety involved in real estate. It is nice not worrying where I am going. Price $189.
2. Hard Drive: Maxtor
An insurance policy for my computer. I have so many files, pictures, contacts, etc. that I do not want to lose. Now I won't. Probably more space than I will ever use. Price $80.
3. Digital Camera: Sony Cybershot
The camera is great. I have taken more pictures of my family than of homes, but it will be great for both. It has lots of features I need to learn, but the camera is very user friendly. Price $149
4. New real estate signs: Grand Sign Company
The best advertisement for an agent is the FOR SALE sign. I think it is important that they look nice. I just picked up five FOR SALE panels and three OPEN HOUSE signs. I have my picture on all my signs. It spreads the brand. I feel it says "I stand behind my business!" Price $305.
5. Health Club Membership: Lifetime Fitness
What an awesome club. Friendly staff. Clean facility. Erin loves the daycare. We go almost every day.
I am currently running on the treadmill on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday while going to yoga on Tuesday and Thursday. It feels great. I meet people. A win win. Price $66/month.
I am not done investing in my business for 2009.
New business cards and a KW wardrobe are both on my radar...
In the mean time, I need to find some more homes to sell.
I have brand new FOR SALE signs that need to find a home. :)
