Making a path in Real Estate

When we created the concept of Jackson Stanley Realtors and designed our business plan OUTSIDE the box there was a lot of talk surrounding our style.  We heard things such as “you’re to aggressive with your vision”, “this style doesn’t work down here”, and my personal favorite “there’s no way you will be successful creating a company where you’re not part of the good old boys club.”  It’s hard NOT to be discouraged when you hear these types of things from fairly credible sources. 

I have always been told that one of my best and worst traits is that I tend not to listen to people opinions and I always create my own path.  My thoughts have always been this, if you have something positive to share or want to offer insight I am ALWAYS available but if not stop talking I don’t have time for negativity.  Rude?...NO….because us brushing off your sny, passive aggressive comments, this makes us who we are.  Constant complaining and never taking the blame, this behavior almost never allows growth in anybody…step outside the box, be unique and own your life…accountability changes everything!

Our goal in founding JSR in the Upstate of South Carolina was to support, coach, inspire, encourage and offer all the tools needed to be successful.  We are searching for people willing to share our vision, incorporate our style and become high performers.  In our short time we have found some very influential people from our leaders, agents, vendors and clients.  At JSR we all grasp the importance of growth and by understanding this concept we are changing an industry.  In just one full year we were overwhelmed and honored to hear based on our production through GGAR we earned the spot of #62 of 320 companies and through WUAR we landed #37 of 174.  We are so very proud of our Team here at Jackson Stanley Realtors and we are EXSTATIC for 2013!
