We have spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks thinking about our internal goals for 2019 as an office, and as individuals. In our office, our model has changed a little bit as we are getting away from taking on each project as a full rehab. However, we are still looking to do the same number, if not more, of transactions that we have done in the past. Changing our model though does not change how we want to go about the process, and our first step in our collective process as an office is thinking about our goals.

The first conversation I have with someone who is in the Complete Dealflow System (completedealflowsystem.com) always revolves around what they have accomplished in years previously and what they wish accomplish in their year upcoming. This allows us to anchor ourselves with a tangible target, that hopefully is not entirely financially motivated. Think of the simple formula that (X) calls turns into (Y) conversations which turns into (Z) appointments and with your specific close rate turns into (S) offers which brings you into your (M) closed deals- which means you get paid, and everybody loves getting paid right!?

Think about what is you want to accomplish and put forth a vision that of where you want to be. What does that look like? What does that feel like? What does sound like? Be as specific as you can possibly be. A great list of goals is not just one sentence by itself, but rather encompasses what you want to do, how much of that something you want to do, and by when you want it done: Bad Example: do more wholesales. Good Example- five wholesale deals by the end of March. The second example anchors you into doing five specific transactions by the end of a certain time period.

The more you can focus on doing the little things, the bigger things will seem far easier and you will become comfortable with the uncomfortable. As always Nick and I are available to go over your goals and talk you through creating them to make your 2019 your  best year yet!

So it’s been way too long since we paid attention to this written blog.  Everything has gone to QUICK snippets – mainly video on a social media page/group/post/insta/tweet/snap/ holy cow there are too many to mention.

That said – and with a million rehabs (7 concurrently) and a bazillion deals to analyze (hundreds per week!) we’ve been INSANELY busy.

We also have a ton of changes we are implementing – most of them, we’ll be posting here on on our social channels, so be sure to LIKE, SUB and FOLLOW us using our links…

Here’s a quick rundown of a few of the big changes:

  1. New Acquisitions Department!

Knowing that in order to scale and help more sellers as we grow to be the top real estate buyer in the Greater Boston and Southern NH markets, we needed some super high quality people that believed in our core values – Integrity, Giving First, and Service to Others – to believe in our mission and come on board to treat our sellers and customers the way they want to be treated.  With our goal of getting positive testimonial from every seller we encounter who engages us (whether we can purchase their home or not), we’re moving forward on offering each person who calls a way to help.

We are SUPER excited and are investing most of our time in training these 5-star individuals as they represent our powerful brand.  Stay tuned for an announcement of the new website where you can meet them all.

2.  Welcome our new Director of Operations

With change comes growth, and with growth comes opportunity.  We are SUPER excited to welcome this unique individual aboard in a Director role.  You’ll know why when you hear him speak.  A total match with our mindset, our path to success, and the desire to see others push forward and succeed in a #GiveFirst manner.

Matt is coming on as a full Director of Ops, but he’s also serving as the head trainer for the Solutions Team (our buying group) and also as a coach for those real estate teams and investors looking for help and coaching (more details found on AARealEstateMentor.com).     If you have not reached out to him yet, he’d love to connect.  Feel free to connect with him via the social media channels above or through our Contact Us page.

Alternatively – you can learn more about him on our recent #ShutUpAndDoIt Podcast HERE: https://youtu.be/nAdUA5F310E

3. Portfolio Growth:

We are actively growing our Portfolio with rentals and larger-scale multifamilies in Central MA, Southern NH and even Eastern OH (a post on that later!) – but we’re SUPER excited about a particular commercial development project, first of its kind in #Billerica!

As many of you know – I (Nick) grew up in a town about 25 minutes north of Boston, and while I claimed to never be a “townie”, I moved back after bouncing around in several cities and towns…and I couldn’t be happier. With a brand new $75M high school being built and a town that’s the second largest in the state (but still retains its town meeting and “local” feel), it has proven to really welcome growth and development, and the parcel I’ve been wanting for 5 years, is finally within our grasp.

We will most likely be looking for partners on this project – so while I cannot divulge any details unless we already know eachother, I’d love to connect in any way to learn more about you and your businesses, and see if anything we have might be a fit with your goals.

That’s the best brain dump I have for now… as always, we appreciate you following us, and let’s grow together!
