BIG vs small

Haven't mused through this blog for a while. Not that there is nothing to say, rather, 1. been busy throughout the summer (plus some time-off for a cousin wedding in Alberta) ; 2. been micro-blogging via Facebook, Twitter on those momentarily feelings and comments.  However, over last couple of months, this one thought still resonates and wants to be written as a post.

As you may know, we returned to the country few years ago.  I have been a realtor for only a handful of years.  I went on it pretty much alone with limited resources.  (Grateful to those advised from time to time.  Also to the trusty helping hands on marketing, planning and operations I obtained earlier this year so that I can be more focused on working with my clients to meet their needs.)

So many so that I must let my junior teammates to attend their cases...  while I ...

Just one second, before I ever get to there, how can we - small agents -compete with those established ones?  I didn't have an answer.
