The Best It Can Be Done…

Every now and then in our everyday lives, we run across, or in some cases, sit in front of, excellence. When it happens, one or more of our senses pick up on the excellence.

Sunday morning Governor Henry McMaster presented Associate Pastor/Minister of Music, Steve Phillips, with The Order of the Palmetto, our state’s highest honor.

This is well deserved as Steve Phillips may have entertained, lifted the spirits, inspired, and/or saved as many Sandlappers as anyone.

I have a line written in one of my real estate training journals that reads, “Are you doing this the best you can do it, or are you doing this the best it can be done?” I don’t know where I got this, but I wrote it down and love it. Steve Phillip’s music program continues to be the best it can be done.

I don’t know much about music, but I do know when people are moved and inspired. The FBC choir, led by Phillips, often blows the congregation’s hair back and very often moves people to tears. I’ve witnessed this since I was a freshman at USC in 1991, when I began attending and sitting with my grandparents, Leon and Sylvene Jones. While FBC is on statewide TV every Sunday morning, I can tell you with full authority that TV doesn’t do Phillip’s music program justice.

I’ve often thought that Dr. Wendell Estep has the best and worst job in the pastoring business, depending on how one looks at it. On one hand, he has the immense pressure to bring his A-game every single week because of what the music program delivers before he hits the stage. On the flip side, Dr. Estep can nestle in a few paragraphs to get by, and that’s OK. After all, the music was so awesome that the congregation is spiritually lifted and good to go for the week.

I’m just kidding. Dr. Estep brings it every Sunday and everyone loves him and his messages.

I don’t want to overdo all of this, but if you want to be moved, go to First Baptist Church on Sunday at 10:30.

Sit up front.

2018 RFPs Requested By JLC

A few days ago I saw the presser below regarding the Junior League of Columbia opening their RFPs (Request For Proposals).

As many of you know, the Junior League of Columbia is our practice’s philanthropy of choice. I have a long history with the League; several women on our team are active members, and some of my best friends and my wife are members or sustainers. Personally, my relationship with the women of the League has been fun, meaningful, impactful, and real.

That said, the press release below is where the business side of all this happens.

The beauty of our relationship with JLC that no one sees is that Amanda, Elizabeth, Amy, and I know and trust that the JLC will be far more effective and deliberate with our funds than we ever could. As you can see in the link, the process is professionally administered, intensely deliberated on, and properly executed to the best candidates they see fit.

In short, it is first class.

Much of the money raised throughout the year (see top image above) funds the plethora of programs the League facilitates around the Midlands, first hand. $150,000 is distributed via RFPs.

Why am I writing about RFPs, you ask? Two reasons: 1 – I want folks that work for, belong to, and/or believe in an organization that would like to know more about these potential funds and the process to be aware of them and apply; 2 – I want folks that are searching for a place to contribute in 2018 and beyond to consider the Junior League as just what you may be looking for.

If you have any questions or would like to talk it out, I’m a very open book and can point you in the right direction. My number is 803-447-8683 .  For more information, click here and check out the thorough application and process.

Thank you!

Zillow’s 2017 Most Favorited.

The other day I was scrolling through Twitter and found an interesting list. Zillow posted the website’s “2017’s Most Favorited Home In Every State.”

It was fun to see what got folks attention. There are mansions and, well, not mansions. It makes you think, “How is this house the most clicked in that state?” Price point (high or low)? Was it a crazy popular blog post from a celebrity blogger or a popular Realtor’s Facebook update? Perhaps a Tweet from Taylor Swift?

Who knows…

That said, check out South Carolina’s most favorite(d). Many of you will put it together when you read Zillow’s lead-in paragraph and match it up with the pic at the top of this post. The unusual description put this one on top of the Palmetto State’s list.

Thank you and have fun scrolling!

Big Thank You, Someone!

Big SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to the person that put my little girl’s favorite princess dress on this stop sign!

Apparently, it flew out of the golf cart the night before and someone took the time to put it on a hanger and display it so it could easily be found.

The text I received from Jennifer the next afternoon (along with the pic above) read, “You’re in the doghouse with Ivey, Daddy!!!!,” after Ivey saw the dress from her car seat and started yelling, “Mommie! It’s my dress!” 😐

Again, Ivey Jones and I thank someone out there, big time!

Franklin Jones

…Buy. The. Neighborhood.

Awesome opportunities (and stuff) are on the way!!!

In case you missed the ‘soft reveal’ via the spirits and wine cups at the Junior League Holiday Market, or didn’t receive a Christmas card from us this year (or just didn’t pay attention to either), the F|A Network has a big announcement coming in the next few days and weeks.

Stay tuned!

Thank you!

What Sold On Your Street?

KW & Women ==> Winning.

There are a few things about our company and team that I would like to blog about before 2017 ends. One is this designation from Franchise Business Review that awarded Keller Williams one of the Top 50 Franchises for Women, which I think is pretty cool.

I can speak personally to this.

The first person I joined professionally is, Amy Ackerman Cartin, who is not only taking care of our admin world but also teaching classes at our KW Market Center. Our first Keller Williams Operating Principal and current Market Center investor is Sherrie Puffer. Our Market Center Administrator is Angie Helms. Our Broker-In-Charge is Tracy Stutler. The owner of the dominant training system of our KW Region (Carolinas) is Holly Prescott. Our first MAPS Coach was Michaelann Byerly. Dianna Kokoszka created and is in charge of BOLD (Business Objective/A Live By Design), which serves as the head-shakingly successful global Keller Williams coaching universe. Mo Anderson, known as the “Velvet Hammer,” and one of the very top executives of Keller Williams, inspires all us and womps our a**es at the same time.

Elizabeth W. Ross and I have changed each other’s lives.

 Enter, Tammy Nantz, Mimi Liu, Sarah Penn, Jacquelyn Fauerbach, and Courtney Westerlund.

It goes without saying, Amanda Payne and I are partners currently and in future endeavors: F|A Network, the upcoming Downtown Columbia KW Market Center, the Keller Williams Profit Sharing System, future buildings and other Market Center opportunities…all that.

Further still, the Junior League of Columbia is our philanthropy of choice, and when I bring it on home, I walk in the door to my amazing wife and three daughters that I want to succeed as they see fit, exponentially.

Whew!

That ALL said, I’m super proud to be a part of this company.

Check the article below.

Mega agent Geetika Nagpal isn’t surprised that Keller Williams is on Franchise Business Review’s list of the Top 50 Franchises for Women in 2017. “I think Keller Williams is very supportive of both men and women,” Nagpal explains.

However, having female role models within the company such as Tracey Forde, her team leader at the Kirkland (Wash.) market center, makes a difference to her. “She consistently pushes me to think bigger.”

Franchise Business Review developed its list based on feedback from 6,400 female franchisees that rated aspects crucial to their success such as leadership, training, marketing and financial picture. The publication’s list honors franchises that support women in meeting their personal and financial goals while fostering gender equality.

Geetika-1.jpg

Breaking the Mold

At Keller Williams, not only are more than 50 percent of the company’s 150,789 associates women, so are two thirds of the board of directors and half of the executive leadership team. That is in stark contrast to a 2015 study of women in leadership by Urban Land Institute which found women surveyed only make up 14 percent of CEOs of real estate and land use organizations.

“Keller Williams has always been a strong advocate and platform for women leaders,” says Mary Tennant, current member of the Keller Williams board and the company’s former COO and president.

Earlier this year, Swanepoel named Tennant one of the 15 most powerful women in residential real estate. Her leadership trajectory reflects the opportunities Keller Williams provides women entrepreneurs. The year she joined the company as an agent, she was named Rookie of the Year. This led to the opportunity to serve as the team leader of the company’s flagship market center. Later, she became an operating partner of what is likely the largest single real estate office in the world.

In her many roles, Tennant has provided countless women leaders with opportunities to build profitable, sustainable businesses and make a difference in people’s lives.

There are regional owners, regional directors, market center owners, team leaders and coaches who are women, notes Mo Anderson, vice chairman of the board. She was a 57-year-old woman chosen by a 37-year-old Gary Keller when she was named CEO of KW in 1994, Anderson says.

And the trend of women in leadership roles has continued: by June 2017, 55 percent of market center leadership were women.

Shattering the Glass Ceiling

“Keller Williams provides everyone the limitless ability to make dreams come true,” Anderson says. “We are taught to build profitable businesses, teams and wealth.”

Holly_Priestner-1.jpgOne of the most successful Keller Williams leaders is Dianna Kokoszka, CEO of KW MAPS Coaching. Kokoszka led the company to be named the No. 1 worldwide leader in training across all industries by Training magazine. “The training and coaching division of our company responsible for this award is run by a brilliant woman,” Anderson says.

Keller Williams has always attracted women leaders and provided them with opportunities to succeed, says Holly Priestner, vice president, KWRI.

At KWRI, we are spoiled having direct access to extraordinary mentors like Mo Anderson, Mary Tennant and Dianna Kokoszka. It’s an honor to work alongside and learn from great leaders like our General Counsel Jamie Jatzlau and our Chief Financial Officer Ann Yett,” Priestner says. “I can’t imagine a more supportive environment in which to grow and develop as a leader.”

That’s often not the case in other real estate companies. For example, a recent Inman’s Special Report, “Does real estate have a gender problem?” noted that nearly 40 percent of women felt that their gender was a factor in them not getting a promotion, compared to 10 percent of men who reported they had the same experience.

Building the Career of Her Dreams

TOp Women Stats.jpgFor Nagpal, she has been able to develop as a business owner and leader of her team with the direct support of Forde and the rest of the Kirkland office. Even before she joined Keller Williams in January 2016, Forde was interested in her success, Nagpal says. Forde also helped her solve the problems she was facing.

In her first four months, Nagpal closed four homes. The next year, she closed 28 homes and began drawing the attention of other companies, but decided to turn real estate into a full-time career with Keller Williams.

“I just felt better connected with Tracey. She had my best interests in mind,” Nagpal explains. “She would always make the time for me.” Forde’s persistence not only convinced Nagpal to leave the brokerage where she began her real estate career, but after less than three months with Keller Williams, Nagpal also quit her job at Microsoft, where she had worked for nine years. She is both excited and surprised by the change in her career path. She moved to the United States from India, earning a degree in computer engineering from the University of Maryland in College Park.

“When I got a job at Microsoft, that was the biggest thing that could hap – pen. What more could I ask for?”

With her new career, Nagpal has answered her own question. “I started to enjoy (real estate), and I quit (Microsoft). I’ve never looked back. It’s pretty amazing, actually,” Nagpal says.

She loves the healthy competition. “There are a lot of people who are doing so much better than you and running bigger teams. They inspire you,” Nagpal says. When they met, Forde asked Nagpal what her plan was to scale her business. “I had no clue, I was clueless,” Nagpal says.

Last summer when Nagpal decided to grow her business beyond referrals, she began working 10 to 14 hours a day. “It was crazy,” she says. Forde gave her the idea to create a team.

“I made my first hire, and that gave me confidence when I started to see results,” Nagpal says. With training and guidance, she has hired two more agents and an admin/ in-house transaction coordinator to leverage herself more. “It’s still a new team, but I already see results.”

Supporting Women Worldwide

Keller Williams provides entrepreneurship and leadership opportunities to women all over the world. Two years ago, Mariluz Gomes chose KW Portugal because she could access models and systems with proven results to grow a real estate business. The Keller Williams value proposition was the main driver in her becoming the company’s agent, she says.

“Reading the Millionaire Real Estate Agent was mind-blowing since it became clear to me what the steps were to reach superior levels of performance,” Gomes says.

For example, she learned to have a purposeful approach to building a team. “Accountability also made me have clarity about my business numbers and has been fueling me to reach my goals.” The organizational model of her market center provides her with the support she needs to overcome the daily business challenges, Gomes says. “Keller Williams gives everyone the same opportunities independent of their gender, religion or race,” she says.

The challenges in her market are not dependent on gender. Instead, it’s about having a great value proposition and a level of service for buyers and sellers, Gomes explains. Even with her growing success, Gomes is still able to balance what she considers the best benefit of being with Keller Williams: more time with her family. “Above all that, I’m in control of my business and personal life because I can manage time based on my priorities.”
