Valerie's Belfair WA Real Estate Blog: March 2009

What do you mean I can't do that? Don't tell me that.

What do you mean I can't do that? Says who? Why Not? Anytime someone says those words to me it actually makes me work harder to find a way TO DO IT!  I don't let those words stop me!

And so it begins... I love this time of year and throughout summer and fall because it is when I get to spread my wings even more and enjoy a freedom as well as surprise people. 

People who do not know me or have just met me, are surprised when they find out that I ride a motorcycle. Their reactions are all usually the same - an ear splitting grin and envy as they look at my bike and give me a high five for going for it. A lot of questions they will generally ask..

Around this time of year, my husband and I pull our motorcycles out and ride whenever we can- weather permitting. I used to be "shy" and would not ride my motorcycle while I was working; some would question how I was going to be able to "do" real estate and take care of business while on my motorcycle.

I decided the heck with that. I want to ride. Don't tell me I can't do that.... So I do.

It's actually quite simple and cost effective and the best part - an experience that you will not find anywhere else. 

My husband bought me a bag for my luggage rack so I can carry my computer, fliers, purse, whatever I can fit in there! (he states continually he's created a monster).... And off I go. 

I usually ride my motorcycle when I am on a day of networking, checking on my homes for sale, filling flyer boxes and other little tasks. And what a way to network and multitask!

I can guarantee you that at least ONE person will stop and have a conversation with me in regards to my motorcycle and/or the fact that I am a woman rider (not to say they won't talk to a man either cuz they will!). What a perfect way to open the door to what I do for a living.

And when I am on my motorcycle, they see and feel my passion for it and eventually our conversation always turns to the economy which in turns turns to - YEP - real estate. And if it doesn't,  they will always ask me where I am headed. My grin becomes huge again, as I start down the road of my other passion in life.

I explain to them how I help people achieve their dreams and goals in life From there it goes and I can take it in any direction I would like....

And here's the other amazing thing about all of this: They ALWAYS remember who I am.

Don't ever let anyone tell you "YOU CAN'T DO THAT!"

So what surprises do you have up your sleeve?
