Hey, Grand Pooh-bah!
A blog/vlog/musings/ that might publicly humiliate myself or maybe, impart a bit of wisdom I have acquired through the years of real estate, real life experiences and lessons learned.
If you are reading this so far, I am sure the first thought you had was, “Oh geez. Here’s another ‘How To Sell/Buy/Fix/Flip/Hold/Price a Home’ blog”. I won’t lie. There will be times that I will share my thoughts on those topics and other matters like it. However, my mission is to write about my “experiences”. In other words: Share with you the events in my life, how I and others reacted to those events and the lessons I did or did not learn.
You also might be wondering about the title of this blog. My real estate career has placed me in a plethora of situations which has honed the skills I have acquired over the years. I’ve held high-level positions in new home sales construction firms and IT/Marketing corporations before I devoted my life to a career in real estate. Since then, I have owned my own brokerage, run a successful team and held leadership positions in residential real estate brokerages for the 30+ years (Yes, I started when I was 12). My current position is a type of “managing broker” or Broker Designated Agent, where I counsel, train and support several hundred agents while still holding the position as Director and CEO for The Weymouth Group of Keller Williams Realty Centre, where we represent buyers, sellers and investors for residential and commercial real estate. Yes, I’m busy and, I LOVE what I do. The position of Broker Designated Agent requires a considerable amount of knowledge of real estate law, contracts as well as possess decent interpersonal skills to respectfully and confidently communicate to agents, brokers, attorneys and the Real Estate Commission. When I accepted the position, I jokingly referred to myself as Grand Pooh-bah (visions of Fred Flintstone). The name stuck. After some research, it turns out that Pooh-bah is not a term of endearment. The name has come to be used as a “mocking title for someone self-important or locally high-ranking and who either exhibits an inflated self-regard or who has limited authority while taking impressive titles.” (Wikipedia)
Lesson learned? Get a new nick name. Didn’t learn? I’m not impressive?
