We are just wrapping up on all current remodeling projects and are now awaiting the go ahead on some job bids. Hopefully, JJ and I can fit some time in to socialize and catch up with most of our real estate investors and acquaintances, and in the process learn something new or garner the latest news ion real estate and bank lending. July is looming around the corner and we await its arrival with new hopes and opportunity.
We were quite bemused when we had a person actually contact us, asking if we had a certain rental available and then actually lay a deposit down on the place we had available “sight unseen!” Without the unit even being remodeled or updated! Right there, those two words speak volumes to JJ and I more than any amount of money would ever do when it comes to our rental business and practices.
When folks come to know who you are by your work ethics and your treatment of others, that is when you know you and your business is great at what you do. Our work is our heart. When we remodel, using every last blood, sweat and tears, we hope it shows in our outcomes.
When the folks you sell your flip sells to or who you rent to are satisfied and content with the finished product (a comfortable and beautiful function able home), then you know you have done a job well.
As in last month’s letter blog, I mentioned that one must live by values and good common sense for the greater of mankind in order to succeed in life. How well you adhere to these core values worldwide, is how well you will succeed in your endeavors and how wealthy you become down the road.
Always be a servant to your fellow man.
Always do unto others as you would like to have done to you.
Always do it right the first time.
And to add one more, ALWAYS GO ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT YOU THINK YOU CAN DO FOR OTHERS!
There’s a whole big world out there. Pay attention.
Crissy and Johnny Jackson
