We are reading through the book Be Obsessed or Be Average, by Grant Cardone. We picked this book a few weeks back before a lot or the major changes took place, but the timing couldn't be more relevant.

Now is the time to get ahead, even if the world seems to be upside down.

This book isn't for the faint of heart. It's harsh and well... sometimes just offensive, but the message is timely. If you aren't obsessed with what you do, you aren't allowing yourself to make a big impact in your space.

We'd love to know your thoughts.

I have always had a passion for physical fitness -- running several marathons, interstate bike races and other events. This obsession for self improvement contributed greatly to my success throughout my eight years as a Wildland Firefighter.

As some of you may already know, I have been training the last year for a bodybuilding show. I put in hours of work, months of dieting and calorie restriction, early mornings and massive amounts of willpower to make this happen. Training for this show was a true challenge that took sheer discipline, determination and grit.

As you might have guessed...

The show has been canceled.

Do I feel like all my work was for nothing? Absolutely not.


Here are some lessons I’ve learned along the way:

A client once told me that he was interested in selling his home, but didn’t know how he could because he was out of state and concerned about not being present for the transaction.

I assured him, we’ve done many sales like this in the past by using technology to our advantage and keeping great communication throughout the process. After providing more information, he agreed to give it a try.

Over the course of several weeks, we had his property listed, marketed, sold and closed, keeping the transaction simple and smooth for him.

I draw a similar parallel when faced with today’s challenges.

We know that this world is changing faster than ever. Instead of resisting the change, we embrace it because it allows us to come up with creative solutions.

Flipping homes is more than just a business model.

Taking a property and sprucing it up has the power to revitalize a neighborhood, raise the price of homes in the area, create more curb appeal to move faster on the market, and last but not least, make your living area more homey and inviting.

Here, we take a look at 11519 Dawn Street in Eagle River.

This home was listed and sold by Matthew Lindsay at Precision Home Group in the summer 2019, then it was completely transformed and put back on the market for sale by Stacy Hague at EXP Realty.

Attention is one of our top obstacles to sell homes in today’s market. There are dozens of items demanding our attention every minute. And, when it comes to choosing homes, we don’t always have the luxury of getting special treatment.

At our office, everyday we talk to dozens of sellers that had their homes fail to sell the first time it was on the market. There could be a dozen different reasons why the home didn’t sell, but getting enough attention is likely one of them.

After all, first impressions go a long way

Once you start talking about real estate investing, everyone wants to join the conversation. There are a lot of opinions thrown around on how to do it, personal experience, and maybe even their family’s strategy for investing.

 Anchorage Alaska Best Homes

You can’t find huge contemporary mansions with swimming pools, multiple wings and expansive gardens in Alaska, like you would see in Los Angeles. Alaska’s got its own unique style in culture, activities, people. Why not, homes?!

Although most Alaskan homes were built between the 70s and 80s, the real estate market has been expanding in the last few years. Homeowners, flippers and especially builders have been slowly redefining styles in the traditional Alaskan homes. You may have seen some of them around town: Spinell Homes, Hultquist Homes, Hall Quality Homes, Visser Construction, and so many more. These builders have definitely helped pave the way Alaskans live with beautiful home features and design.

Home buyers now have more options and

It’s not a matter of if you will have a Permanent Change of Duty Station (PCS), it’s a matter of when and where. That’s the reality for our nation’s armed forces. Often times, the soldier and his or her family will have a new duty station already in mind. Sometimes they will get it and other times, not so much. Now, what happens when the soldier gets orders to Alaska? 

It should come as no surprise that a successful PCS or any operation in the military is deeply wrapped in chaos. While soldier and family are mastering their chaotic situation (each is unique to the soldier and their loved ones), there are some key stops they must hit for a smooth transfer.

Each military branch has a different title for this office.
