9 Things Really Successful Real Estate Professionals Refuse to Do

It is fun to have role models. It is like playing follow the leader as a child. You just do what your role model does and you will be successful. However, if that is all you focus on, you are only getting part of the full picture. You also must look at what they refuse to do. What they say no to is as important as what they say yes to. There are nine things really successful real estate professionals refuse to do, and four of them have to do with what to wear if you are a real estate professional.

 

  1. Wear gray to work. The color gray is shown to cause people to be uninvolved and passive and have a lack of energy. None of those are adjectives that would describe success.
  2. Not sweat the details. They know it is popular, and there is even a book titled Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. But successful real estate professionals care about the details and obsess about them. You can learn more about that in this white paper.
  3. Refuse to share. Sharing is the new marketing. Sharing your resources and vendors is what can set you apart from others in your competitive space.
  4. Wear gray in professional headshots that are used in marketing materials. The most popular colors that successful real estate professional women wear in their photos are black, black and ivory, ivory, blue, and red. To learn more, you can read this white paper on the subject.
  5. Not care about first impressions. They realize that first impressions are their paychecks, and they pay particular importance to them. All you have to do is watch any real estate-related show on Bravo.
  6. Refuse to wear earrings. In fact, 64% of successful real estate professionals wear earrings in their professional headshots. This topic is also covered in Day 4 of the monthly webinar, From Frumpy to Fabulous in 5 Days.
  7. Not wear a jacket. A total of 56% of successful female real estate professionals wear jackets in their professional marketing photos. Again, this topic is covered in depth on Day 1 of the on-demand monthly webinar.
  8. Wait to take action. A successful real estate professional is very involved, active, and has an abundance of energy. Success professionals have a bias toward action.
  9. Don’t have a brand.The successful female real estate professionals understand the importance of a brand to differentiate themselves, and they refuse to move through their careers and their geographic market without branding. The brand also influences what to wear if you are a real estate professional.

1 Reason Women Fail at Being Heard

“I don’t know why, but I just don’t like her.” Do you ever have that thought when someone you don’t know enters the room? When you have that initial first impression, it makes it hard to get to know someone because you are taking an aggressive or defensive posture toward them. You may find it hard to connect with them or relate to them in order to actually give them a fair shot and reverse your initial first impression of them.

 

Now, change your perspective and experience this from the shoes (or high heels) of the woman that just walked into the room. Maybe you are nervous entering the room by yourself. Maybe this is a networking event where you need to really sell yourself. You have no idea why the woman across the room does not seem to like you because all you have done is enter the room.

 

The reason for the aggressive attitude may have something to do with the color you are wearing. We have been trained as women to think that black is slimming, but it can have adverse side effects, like increased aggression.

 

Recent studies have shown the hockey players wearing black jerseys are assessed with more penalties for aggression that when they wear white jerseys. The conclusion of this research is that if you want to be perceived as aggressive, you should wear black.

 

When you approach people, if you want them to be open and receptive, perhaps you should wear a different color than black. When you open a sales dialogue, walk into an interview, or begin a presentation, consider your color choice in what you are wearing.

 

So, when you need to be persuasive and be heard, choose color. When it is time to get into full bi*$# mode, feel free to wear head-to-toe black.

3 Things to Never Do on a First Date

If you like the guy you are going on a first date with, here are three things never to do.

(1) Don’t be boring. He is probably not interested which cat videos you watched on YouTube today.

(2) Don’t talk about your exes. Do I really need to explain this one?

(3) Don’t wear any color other than red. This means you are going need some first date red outfit ideas.

Why the color red? Well, research has shown that red gets the blood pumping. It is the color of passion and can get your date’s heart racing, which is exactly what you want if you are into the guy. You want him to be excited, and you want to be memorable.

 

In the YouTube video “17 Chic Date Outfit Ideas,” you got 17 outfit ideas, but only a few of them involve the color red. So, using that video, here is how to modify the outfits so that you have red first date outfit ideas.

 

First Date Red Outfit Ideas

 

  • Outfit #3: This outfit already includes a pair of red-hot jeans.
  • Outfit #4: Swap out the tan tie blouse for a red-hot chili pepper red one. Are you sexy, or are you uptight? That mystery will keep his attention all night.
  • Outfit #5: Wear it with a red sheer blouse with a black tank top underneath. This will be sure to get is heart rate elevated.
  • Outfit #7: This outfit already includes a pop of red with a red scarf.
  • Outfit #14: Add touches of red with red wedge sandals and a red crossbody bag.
  • Outfit #15: Swap out the white wrap dress for a red wrap dress and keep the touches of gold.

 

 

Now, if you are going on a blind date and you are only going on this date to make your wannabe matchmaker friend happy, then be boring. Not only should you talk about your exes but also pull up pictures of them on your phone and wear another color besides red. Save your first date red outfit ideas for the dates you actually want to have a future with.

 

P.S. For all of you non-single ladies, you can follow these rules for date night, your anniversary, on your couples vacation, or if you need to pull out a freakum dress.
