I won’t even bore you with my normal statement about how much I love OWN Real Estate and their incredible team. (Except…maybe I just did.). Instead, I want you to scroll through this gallery and see how much fun these people are having together. A wide range of realtors – professionals that could easily see one another as competitors – are celebrating one another.
Aside from having an excuse to wear spectacular outfits, the OWN folks get together once a year to recognize their accomplishments as both individuals and as a group. It is powerful and one hell of a good time. Such a reminder that our accomplishments are truly made greater when we collaborate. The idea that success is achieved in isolation is simply not true. Trust me, I would know. I used to be one of those people that thought my business could only thrive if I did everything by myself. I’ll be the first to laugh at that.
If you read my recent newsletter, you’ll know that my team is one of my proudest bragging points when it comes to Misty Saves the Day. They are a spectacular group of women + Chris that continuously provide our clients with amazing support. We have grown this year, both in the number of clients we serve and in our staffing.
It is honestly really exciting.
Growth isn’t inherently good. It can be overwhelming and intimidating. If done too quickly, it can spiral out of control. When I talk about growth, especially within my team, I’m excited for the many ways that this team excels beyond my own strengths. My team has introduced me to new organizational processes and the joy that is Trello. They exemplify the core ideals of Misty Saves the Day while incorporating their own voice. I don’t think any of us have the same background or education, which only makes us stronger.
You get the point. Our differences are what makes us so damn awesome.
We are constantly pulling from one another, pushing each other to be better, and having a good time while we do it. In fact, this OWN gallery has inspired me to plan a little fun for my own team (no pun intended). But you’ll have to stay tuned for more on that. I’m not giving away any secrets today.
OWN Real Estate: you are delightful, inspiring, and some of the best-dressed dancers in the Hampton Roads. The ways in which you individually shine with collective support is something I truly admire. No two of you are the same. You each have unique approaches, individually cater to your clients using your own strengths, and are successful within your own definitions. Your openness to collaboration is what makes OWN so strong a force. Never underestimate that.
You also know how to throw one heck of a party. Cheers to hoping I always get to tag along!
