New York City is MY Hometown

Hi, my name is George L. Rosario and I am from New York. New York City is MY Hometown.

Yes, New York City is my hometown, just like Edge Hill Georgia and Buford Wyoming are hometown to some people. The difference? Edge Hill Georgia has a population of 24, and Buford Wyoming is hometown to a whopping 1 person, while New York City is hometown to 8,538,000 people and growing! I've never been to Buford Wyoming and had to Google it to know what it's all about. I've been to Edge Hill Georgia and it's pretty. Do you really have to Google NYC to tell me something about it?

I laugh every time someone has something negative to say about my city. I love NYC with our 5 boroughs, our NUMEROUS professional sports teams & professional sports events, our museums, our Statue of Liberty, our skyscrapers (Empire State Building, World Trade Center, Chrysler Building, etc), our awesome bridges & tunnels, our rooftop bars and lounges, our history, our Central Park, Prospect Park, and many other parks, our many zoos and aquariums, our funny named streets, our diverse neighborhoods, our nightlife, our hustle, our culture, our events, our colleges & universities, our economy, our Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, our public transportation system, our many world renowned parades, our street culture, our attractions, and of course, our amazingly diverse and interesting people who proved on 9/11/2001 that although we are not perfect and are vulnerable, we are determined to get back up and come back stronger. 

My friends, trust me when I tell you that I love to travel around the United States. I love exploring new neighborhoods, new towns, new cities, new sites, hidden secrets, strange little places, new experiences! The United States of America has more to offer those who want to take an extended road trip than just about any other place in the world. But, the best part about that is the moment I arrive back at my hometown of NYC and catch a glimpse of our city skyline!

You have no idea how often a New Yorker has to sit through a scene like the one you'll see below and bite his tongue. It seems like there's always someone in every crowd outside of NY who has some "smart" comment to say about how bad NYC is. I often laugh inside thinking, "you just couldn't make it in my hometown and that's why you make fun of it." These people are like the guy that asks a girl out and when she says no, he decides to trash talk her calling her ugly and stupid. It is immature to say the least.

So the next time you want to trash talk New York, remember it's such a great city that you had to say the name TWICE when describing her (New York, New York). Remember that countless movies, plays, shows, memoirs, books, articles, TV shows, performances, songs, poems, stories, specials, skits, documentaries, text books, college courses, travel sites, websites, pamphlets, etc. have been created to honor her, and that many of those have come from people outside of the United States. Remember that New York City is so special that she is the place where the world's leaders come to speak, where the world's dreamers come to dream, where the world's economy looks at for direction, where the poor & the rich come for opportunities, and where the entire world learned that the United States of America does not bow down to bullies who attack us! Remember that this is the city that has been welcoming visitors from around the world for as long as it has existed, and that many of those visitors decide to stay and call this city their new found home town. Remember that this is the ONLY New York City there ever was and ever will be. Remember that this is MY NEW YORK CITY!!!

By the way... this video is hilarious!

What Is Success?



Success

The meaning of success is subjective. That which makes one person feel successful may or may not make someone else feel successful. What makes me successful comes directly from my belief system, my dreams and goals. What makes you successful comes from the fulfillment of goals you set for yourself. Success is not an outward accomplishment, but rather an inner one.

On the surface, the millionaire who lives in a mansion and owns every toy imaginable is much more successful than the guy who lives in a 1 bedroom coop and gets from point A to point B on a bicycle. But when we lift the covers of that public image, the guy that lives in the coop may have everything he needs in order to be happy, while the millionaire may lack the one ingredient that may make him feel fulfilled and therefore tries to compensate for that missing ingredient with material things. Success is subjective.

Why am I writing about this on my real estate blog? Well, because real estate is one of those factors that is used by many as a measure of their success. People with large real estate portfolios are often viewed by society as huge success stories. People who rent a bargain apartment are often viewed by society as mediocre. But it has been my experience that real estate, much like success, is subjective. I’ve met people who have lived in small, rented studios apartments for years and they are completely satisfied with their life. I’ve also met people who own mansions and lots of real estate investments and they live a miserable life.

Today I want to talk about why I, as a successful Realtor will never judge the way anyone chooses to live if they are living in the residence of their choice. When I went into real estate, I did because I wanted to be a very successful Realtor. Interesting enough, as time went by and I became a more proficient professional, my idea of success in real estate changed. If you would have asked me what a successful Realtor is when I first started in the business, I would have told you it is the Realtor who makes the most money and sells the biggest properties in the industry. I would have told you that the most successful agent in my eyes is the one that drives a luxury car, lives in a luxury home, lives a luxury lifestyle and has a bank account with many a cash pile that has many zeros following the first number. Today, my view of a successful agent is much different.

I learned as a Realtor that my success (remember success is subjective) had a lot more to do with how I helped a client than how much money I made off the deal. My success has a lot more to do with the service I provide than with the money my client pays me. See, I saw very early in my career that those who chased business on the basis of how much commission they could make off of one deal would fail in the business. Meanwhile those professionals who focused on providing the highest level of service regardless of the amount of commission they would be earning had a much more successful career.  

This matters because when you take care of your clients, and strive to provide the highest level of service possible, you inevitably base your success on helping others meet their idea of success. So whether my clients are hoping to rent a small economy apartment, or my clients want to sell or buy a multi-million dollar investment property, my success relies on my ability to meet their needs.

So when I entered this business, I had dreams of being a billionaire salesperson in a year (not quite but you get what I mean). Today, more than a decade later, I am focused on creating life changing relationships with my clients, helping them meet their needs with the least amount of stress, and in turn, establishing a solid, reputable, respectable and profitable real estate practice. That is my definition of success in my business, and it is what has made my business better for my clients, my team members, the industry and me.

What is your idea of success?

How Do I Start? My Journey Into The World of Ownership



How do I start?

Yes, that was my first question when I went into the world of business. I never looked at myself as a real estate salesperson. I saw myself as a business owner. I was working on commission. That means that I would only eat if I produced.

As a young father, I knew that I didn't have the option to fail. I knew that I had to be a success. It wasn't because I wanted a nice car, or money to hang out with my friends. I needed to do things right so that my son would not feel the pinch of his father's failure, or worse, so that my son would not be disappointed in me.

Now I know what you may be thinking. Is this going to be another story about how I made it despite all the odds? No! This is a post about what I did to get started. This is a post about what I wanted to accomplish and the steps I took in the very beginning to set off on my journey. This is a post about getting started.

First let's look at the vehicle I chose. Like anything else, we must choose our vehicle wisely. While most vehicles are useful forms of transportation from point A to point B, chances are that the wrong vehicle will stop you from getting to where you want to go rather than help you get there. What do I mean? Well, a luxury car is a great vehicle, but if you want to travel the Greek islands, you are not going to jump into a Mercedes S550 and travel through the Mediterranean Sea in one. The same is true in the other direction. The Abeking and Rasmussen EXCELLENCE V is an excellent luxury yacht but I would be a fool to try to get across the United States, from New York City to California via land on one.

I knew I chose the right vehicle once I got into the real estate world. I had a real interest in this. I wanted to learn more and more each day and wanted to grow a business that my family could be proud of. But where would I start? That was the big question.

So I decided to seek field knowledge. I sought out industry experts and studied them to see what it was they were doing to be so successful. I started doing research. But most importantly, I found a mentor and checked my pride at the door. I humbled myself and admitted that I was not competent in the field yet. I admitted that I need to be like a sponge and absorb as much knowledge as possible. I found a mentor I resonated with and went into it with faith.

So where do we get started? Whether it is real estate, the arts, investing, retail, the culinary arts, or anything else, if you are going to go into business for yourself, you must find successful people, surround yourself with them, follow their footprints and learn as much as you can so that you don't make the mistakes the quitters made. Find winners and learn from them.

How do I start? I start by starting. I take the first step and go for it. I make a real commitment to my success. I decide that no matter what, I am going to work harder for this than I've worked for anything else, and I push through all the negativity to find positive role models to help me along the way. I start by taking the first step and only look back to celebrate how far I've come.

Go out there, get started and build your own future. Take control of your destiny. Be the winner you were created to be. I believe I was created to be a winner. Do you? I believe I was created to revolutionize the real estate industry. You don't have to believe this exact same thing, but you must believe that you were created to be great!

If you would like a career in real estate, please feel free to reach out to me or my partners to see if we are a good fit for each other. Let us help you build a greater and more successful you.

Daily Reflection: How To Keep That New Year's Enthusiasm



Keep your enthusiasm level up! Keep your energy level up! Keep your optimism going strong! That's advice that numerous life coaches, business coaches, personal trainers, team developers and entrepreneurs have recommended this to everyone who might listen. It's the topic of speeches, classes, seminars, books, magazine articles, debates, training sessions, etc. Today I want to share something I figured out a couple of years ago which was reinforced again last night.

New Year's Eve is a special day in which many talk about all the awesome goals they've set for the New Year. The amazing thing is that many will set goals that completely eclipse anything they've ever accomplished and they truly believe they will accomplish these goals. Imagine if they kept this level of belief throughout the entire year. How could they possibly fail?

The problem is that this journey called life is not traveled on a leveled road. This road has hills, turns, roadblocks, potholes, bridges, tunnels, accidents, traffic jams, detours, and you often share it with really bad drivers. That poses a serious problem for anyone who wants to stay on track to accomplish a goal but who is easily affected by the unexpected twists and turns of life.

So how can we possibly stay motivated? How do we maintain the momentum necessary so that our New Year's Resolution doesn't fall apart in a couple of months, weeks, days or even hours? I've learned that if I continue feeding my brain with positive, motivational, inspirational material that will help fuel my journey, I will find it easier to stay on track. If I consume content that keeps me in the right mindset, I can deal with any of the obstacles I am sure to encounter along the way. I constantly read good, positive, motivational books. I constantly listen to positive, motivational podcasts. I constantly watch positive, motivational videos. I often go to positive, motivational seminars. I strongly believe in having a positive, motivational coach. I actively seek out mentors whom I can study and learn from. I surround myself with positive, motivational people. I strive to live a positive, motivated life. I document all my accomplishments and all the lessons I learn along the way. THAT is how I deal with obstacles and stay motivated.

Many will say that this doesn't work for everyone. Many will say that they've tried and that this did not work. To those I say that it they need to add the final ingredient in this formula for success. They need to turn off the TV, stop wasting their time reading material that does not benefit their journey, they must avoid getting involved in anything negative, and they must purge their circle of friends of any negative people. You see, it is very easy to slip off the road and crash when you get blindsided by someone who irresponsibly detours you from your positive journey. It is very easy to fail and keep on failing when you surround yourself with people who have never accomplished anything for themselves and have to put you down to make themselves feel better about their situation. So please, do yourself a favor, remove all negativity from your life. You do not need it!

I Am a Storyteller Disguised As a Realtor





WHAT IS YOUR UNIQUE STORY?


Today I spent the bulk of my day sitting in a place where people are at the end of their lives. Some are still fighting while others are just waiting for the last breath of life to leave their bodies. I came across a gentleman who has been given days to live, and who was sitting in a room all by himself, reading a book. He looked so peaceful. He had a smile on his face and looked like he didn't have a care in the world. If I had to guess, he was in his mid 70's. He saw me passing by his door and we made eye contact. At that moment he put his book down and asked me to come into the room. I almost said no but something pulled me towards him.

When I walked into the room, this gentleman asked me to please pass him a bottle of soda he had next to his bed. He pointed at the bottle, smiled and said, "I spent my whole life avoiding this thing because people told me it would kill me. Now I can drink as much as I want because something else is going to kill me first." He laughed so hard at his own joke that I couldn't help but laugh with him. He did say he would love to have a cigar but that is one thing they
won't let him do. I wanted so badly to sneak him one at that moment.

He then asked me a question. What do you do for a living? I told him I'm a Realtor with Coldwell Banker. He asked to see my business card which I handed him. He then asked me to explain to him what I mean by, "I'm a Realtor with Coldwell Banker." I went through the usual definition. "I'm a licensed professional with the most recognized real estate brand in the world, Coldwell Banker. I help solve people's real estate issues by bringing sellers and buyers together to..." Before I could finish the elevator pitch, he motioned with his hand an
d stopped me. He then said he just wants someone other than nurses to talk to. 

We spoke for a couple of hours. We laughed a lot and spoke about both our pasts. He told me about his marriages, his divorces, and the fact that he never had children. He said that was his biggest regret. We even spoke about the book he was reading, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque (one of my favorite classics). He then said that my career has more to do with the story behind the why than it does with the textbook definition of the position. He said that New York is overstaffed with Professional Real Estate Salespeople, but that it only has ONE of me, and that George L. Rosario's story is what would make him choose me over the other 100 agents that might knock on his door. With his guidance, this is what we came up with. This is my story of what I really do and why I do it.

When I was in 6th grade, my English teacher told me that I had an incredible ability to tell stories about the things I see in the world. She would ask me to write stories, 2 or 3 paragraphs long about things around me, and then she would read these stories in front of the class. This inspired me and I've continued looking for the story behind everything I see and experience. So what do I do for a living? I help create wonderful stories while solving people's problems and meeting their real estate needs. I develop and share stories about people, homes and neighborhoods and find others who want to hear those stories. I help people start a new chapter in the story of their lives. I don't just tell stories about doors, windows, walls, floors, foundations, prices and deeds. I tell stories about experiences, dinners, holidays, community events, memories, details, people, family, goals, life, environment, past, present, future and more. I'm a story teller. Selling homes is a byproduct of this. I'm a Realtor.

My story is different than yours, but that is what makes our industry so incredible. We are not working in a cookie cutter industry. I think that defining yourself by the textbook definition of the word Realtor limits you. Just like there are no two listings that are exactly alike, neither are there two Realtors with the same exact story. So I would suggest that you look for the story behind what you do and why you do it. Be your own unique definition of the word R
ealtor. 

By the way, this gentleman described himself as a creator of smiles, laughs, ideas, memories, crowd winners and tearjerkers. He spent his entire career as a professional speech writer. He said he wrote for graduations, weddings, political campaigns, winners of awards, business presentations, religious leaders, professional speakers and up and coming ones, etc. The hardest speech he ever wrote, and the only one he ever presented himself, was the obituary he read at his mother's funeral 33 years ago. Although he loved his career, he admits he should have confronted his fear of public speaking so that he could have publicly told his mother how much he loved her before she died. This was the only time in our conversation where he choked up and let out a couple of tears. I cried at that moment a lot more than he did. It was also the last thing he said about his own career.

I am
George L. Rosario. I am a unique story teller. I am a Realtor. I am Coldwell Banker Blue.

Why YOU Should Trust Your Realtor Over The Zillows Of The World

*CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO READ ABOUT THE LAWSUIT AGAINST ZILLOW*


For all those homeowners and potential buyers out there who swear by Zillow's Zestimate more than the expert advise and services of a LICENSED Realtor who is affiliated with a reputable, trustworthy company, you may want to read the following and rethink this approach.

When online legal services and online medical services came out, some in those fields panicked because they thought they would become obsolete. Funny thing happened though. That computer screen could not properly diagnose or treat you, and it certainly wouldn't go to court to represent you. The same happened when Zillow, Trulia, ForSaleByOwner and others jumped on the real estate scene. Some agents believed their careers were over. I've discovered that my career has become stronger because real buyers and sellers value the personal touch Realtors bring to every deal. They know that a computer screen cannot replace the legitimate human interaction that takes place when buying or selling a home.

Sure, these days most searches for a home begin online. But, did you know that the vast majority of them (over 97%) end up going through a licensed real estate professional? Zillow cannot tell the difference between a home that is so perfect you could eat off the floors and a home that is so "not-perfect" that you cannot eat while sitting in your car and parked in the driveway. Zillow cannot tell the difference between a $35,000 kitchen upgrade and a $35 plastic shelf system. Zillow cannot tell the difference between a dream home and a "MONEY PIT" (reference to the hilarious movie with Tom Hanks & Shelley Long). Zillow will never be able to show you the difference between a home with a great tenant and a brownstone with a nightmare tenant (watch DUPLEX with Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore).

I always tell people that I would never represent myself in court, self-diagnose myself against any illness, pull my own tooth, work on my own car, do any electrical work at home or prepare my own long tax form because I am not a professional in those fields. Taking on an important task that I don't have a strong working knowledge about is simply foolish, especially when I stand to lose a lot if I make an amateur's mistake. I trust my attorney, my doctor, my dentist, my mechanic, my electrician & my accountant for those tasks. Why would anyone trust one of their biggest lifetime purchases or sales (buying or selling a home) to anyone other than a professional in the field? That just doesn't make any sense. And if you try to do it yourself because Zillow, Trulia, or ForSaleByOwner gave you a boost of "professional confidence", consider the FACT that when ForSaleByOwner.com founder Colby Sambrotto tried to sell his own Manhattan condo using the website and system he created, he had to cave in and eventually hired a Realtor who proved to be worth a lot more than the 6% commission charged for the sale. TIME wrote a story about that: (http://business.time.com/2011/08/17/fsbo-com-founder-sells-condo-using-real-estate-agent/).

Long story shortened, don't shoot yourself in the wallet when selling or buying a home. Hire a professional to do the job. We breathe, sleep and live real estate. It is not what we do part time or whenever we feel like it. This is what we do and those of us that love it are very good at it. You see, when you hire a Realtor, you are hiring a representative with market & industry knowledge that is not learned from the Zillow websites out there. You are hiring a professional who is in the trenches learning what works and what does not work. Give yourself a HUGE advantage. Hire a Realtor.

8 Solid Reasons Why Owning a Home Is Better Than Renting?




WHY SHOULD YOU STOP RENTING & GET INTO OWNERSHIP?

There are some true advantages to home ownership, especially in a place like New York City where renters are already paying more for rent than some people around the country pay for the mortgage on an upscale home. We are going to skip the old talking point of 'when you own a home you get some or all of the money you put into that home back when you move out, while renting gives you back a security deposit if you didn't cause any damages to the apartment.' I'm sure you've already heard it numerous times.

WHICH GIVES YOU MORE LEVERAGE?
Let me talk to my market investors first. You folks understand that the secret to being successful in the investment world is leveraging an investment with a manageable amount of money. The beauty of real estate ownership is the opportunity it provides a home owner to leverage a large investment with a small amount of money, and in some cases none of your money at all. While the market has become hugely competitive, there are still ways to purchase a home with little to no money down. The best way to figure this out is to speak to one of our preferred lenders. They are the most knowledgeable professionals when it comes to government programs and alternative lending tactics to help qualified borrowers to purchase their first home. 

PAYING OFF A HOME VS. SAVING MONEY IN A BANK.
Now let's talk about the equity on your home and what that means for your earnings and savings. If you put your money in the bank during our great savings programs, even if you put your money into a CD account, you are not growing your money at a rate greater or equal to the current rate of inflation. That means that your money is not earning you any note-worthy growth, while its buying power goes down. Would you agree that $10 does not buy you the same as it did just 10 years ago? Would you agree that the bank didn't pay you enough interest on those $10 to keep up with the decreasing buying power of that $10? Owning a home puts your money to work for you by growing in value quicker than your savings would have. So owning a home, as long as you own it responsibly and can make your mortgage payments comfortably, will increase the buying power of your money.

WHICH GIVES YOU GREATER TAX ADVANTAGES?
Owning a home gives you added tax advantages that will help you keep more of the money you earn. Owning a home allows you to fill out a long form tax form that allows you to claim more deductions that you would not have been able to claim if you were a renter. Your accountant can help you figure out how to completely benefit from home ownership during tax season. Tax professionals can show you how to claim extra dependents, use that additional net pay to make a higher mortgage payment because with your interest rate deductions, tax deductions and long form deductions, you probably will not have increased tax liability but may even pay less taxes. The significant savings from tax benefits can often make owning the same as, or cheaper than, renting. Consult your tax professional to figure out how to do this properly.

YOUR MORTGAGE WILL EVENTUALLY BE A LOT LESS THAN THE AVERAGE RENT.
Now here is a benefit of home ownership that has truly hit the renters in our great city the hardest. Rents have skyrocketed. Home owners have discovered that if they secure a fixed-rate mortgage when they buy their home, the mortgage payments can never go up. Renters in rent controlled buildings don't worry much about the rapid increases in rent, but for the vast majority of New Yorkers, their monthly rent goes up every year. I will give you an example of the drastic changes. If you read when it is written (May 2017), and you live in a 2 bedroom apartment in somewhere like Ridgewood Queens, you could pay anywhere from $1,800 to $2,500 for that apartment. If you read this next year, or a couple of years down the road, you will see an increase. You see, a 2 bedroom apartment in Ridgewood was renting for about $1,500 a month just two years ago. A homeowner on the other hand will know what the bulk of his monthly mortgage payments will be for the duration of the loan (15-30 years). That payment that may be higher than the going rates for rents today will seem like a bargain 5 years down the road. Of course home owners have other costs like mandatory insurance (which renters can choose whether to purchase renter's insurance), property taxes (which is one of the tax deductible items on your long form during tax season), and maintenance fees. The benefits for the homeowner still outweigh those to the renter. 

NO LANDLORD CAN KICK YOU OUT OF YOUR OWN HOME.
Scenario A: It's a Saturday morning and you hear a knock on your apartment's door. You open to see that it's your landlord. It's not the 1st so you know she's not there to collect the rent. She says hello, smiles and then looks like she feels horrible about delivering bad news. Her daughter just graduated college and is moving back home. The landlord needs the apartment for her daughter. You have to move out. Scenario B: You go to pay the rent and the owner says, keep this month's rent and use it for a deposit on a new apartment. You have just been asked to move out quickly and quietly. Scenario C: You get a knock on your door. It's your landlord with a Realtor. Surprise, your landlord is selling this home and the buyer wants the home delivered vacant. The landlord wants you to move and since he never gave you a lease (4 family or less does not have to give a lease), you have very little choice but to comply or face eviction, which leaves a permanent mark on your record. Scenario D: You check your mail and find a letter that says the owner of your home is in foreclosure for failure to pay the mortgage. The bank wants you to move so they can do a short sale on this home. Scenario E: The landlord got wind that your new neighbors up the block are paying much more than you are for similar space. Scenario F: You sacrificed in past years to save up for a down payment, bought a home and are now living in your space. No one other than the bank, and only if you default on your mortgage, can come knocking with some excuse for why they need you to move. I will add one more scenario. You wait until you retire to realize that you can no longer afford to rent in the neighborhood you love because your income has been cut in half. If you bought a home, it would have either been paid off or you could now sell it and move to the neighborhood you love with some money in your pocket.

FORGET THE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION TO SAVE MORE.
Owning a home is like a forced savings account. Have you ever made a new year's resolution and promised that you would save "X" amount of money every pay period? How did that go for you? Most people make a plan to save money in a savings account but end up spending that money on the unexpected things in life, like that sale or that discounted vacation that will always cost you more in the end. A mortgage payment is a way of saving money without the choice of splurging on unneeded, spontaneous purchases like one more dress or one more electronic item. A portion of your monthly payments is paying down the loan on the house, which adds equity to that home, and forces the owner to invest in hos own home rather than paying off the mortgage for an owner whom they rent from. Remember, even if only a portion of your mortgage payment is actually being applied to pay down the loan, it is still a more than the zero percent of rent money that is applied to anything the renter can benefit from at the end of the lease term. The monthly rent is paying off the landlord's mortgage, which puts buying power and money into the owner's pocket, not the renter's pocket.

THE HOME YOU OWN IS THE HOME YOU CUSTOMIZE:
Finally, my favorite benefit of owning a home as opposed to renting. A homeowner is free to make changes to a home that the renter cannot. A homeowner can paint his bathroom black, the ceilings purple, the bedrooms orange and living room in green and yellow squares next to the lime green dining room and cherry red kitchen. OK, so I went overboard with the color scheme but it goes to prove that as a homeowner, you can use whatever color scheme you want to use for your home. A renter has to ask permission to change the wall colors from white to off white. Never mind changing the layout of the place. Renters may need permission to hang up a shelf while homeowners can knock down walls and put a hot tub spa in the middle of their living room. Homeowners are not purchasing a home, they are purchasing creative freedom for their living space.

So here is a list of just a few of the benefits of home ownership. From tax and financial advantages, to peace of mind and creative freedom, home ownership definitely has it's advantages. While many will argue that renting gives you the freedom to move at a moment's notice, please understand that moving from one rental unit into another rental unit often means paying a considerably higher rent for the same or smaller space.
