Daylight For America!

In the pursuit of a more perfect, safer, and productive union:

Looking back @ the image above it looks like I posted about the issue of Daylight Savings Time almost 10 years ago.

Apparently, this is currently an issue in the halls of the U.S. Congress and the capitol building in Columbia, SC….and yay for it!

I typed then, and contend today, that daylight savings time is a positive for most people, and the greater good.

Think of it. Who wants to show a house in the dark at 5:30 PM? Even if it’s no problem for the REALTOR, the buyer is certain to have to go back again to see the property in the light of day.

Further, who wants to get a haircut in the dark? Who wants to pay their insurance in the dark (mind you, not everyone pays online).

Further still, golf courses and zillions of other businesses get an extra hour of commerce.

Here’s a quiz: How many people are playing tennis at 6:30-8:30 AM vs 5:30-7:30 – weekdays or weekends.

Even further, think of public safety (including driving)…

I’m not selling you, I’m just telling you that having the sun up later in the day is good for America.

Thank you!

Thank You, Jenkins Mann!

Some of you know that the game of tennis is my exercise of choice. It’s fun, it’s high energy, it’s ballistic, it’s strategic, and all of that. Forty’ish times around the sun have proven that I’m not a runner nor a gym person. Tennis, however, is my jam.

That said, it has major negs:

1- Can’t play if it’s raining.

2- It takes at least two to hit. If you invite folks to play and they wait hours to respond, you could be stuck without an opponent and then the sun goes down and your kids need bath time (or whatever life has), and the opportunity and day is gone.

At Keller Williams, we have a premise that focusing incredibly small can lead to awesomely large results (The ONE Thing). This does not only apply our businesses and careers but to our personal and spiritual lives, as well. That said, as I was in a class of The ONE Thing in Austin, I thought, “I bet my life would change is a huge way if I lost some weight.”

Here’s the big question to unlimited results: “What’s the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”

I began to brain dump with the class: Read books/blogs, watch YouTube, hit balls with anyone I could find, hire a coach, get a tennis ball launching machine…

Narrowing down, what’s The ONE Thing? ONE! Hire a coach seemed to be the answer.

I’ve done that, and it’s working, but that’s money.

Enter my buddy, Jenkins Mann.

To preface, Jenkins is my tennis dude. He beat my ass badly when I was in USTA League play and I wanted to learn from him. Is he the best in the world? No. Maybe? Has he improved exponentially over the years by focusing hard on this craft? Has it made a big difference in his game? Damn right. That’s my guy.

All this to say, I found out that Jenkins had an extra ball machine laying around that he donated to my cause of getting better and shedding some lbs. All I needed to do was find a worthy battery or anything that would make it shoot balls at me.

This ball machine may have become my ONE Thing. If you don’t get anything other than this from this post, get this: I don’t deserve the right to move on to anything else until I master my new forehand to baseline corners against this machine.

Jenkins, you may have changed my world and jumpstarted a habit that will lead to good stuff for my life and family.

Thank you!

40 Yards of No Whistle..?

Saturday afternoon my family and I were at a condo in the shadows of a rain-soaked Williams-Brice Stadium. It was a “Fair-Game” and a good time was being had by all, as we were watching a competitive contest between the Gamecocks and The Gators of The University of Florida. College football is awesome, and all of that…

That said, something happened that should not have happened, and then should not have been allowed to happen, but happened.

I’m not saying it’s on the same magnitude of the New Orlean’s Saints “no call” to go to the SuperBowl, but what happened the other night in Columbia, SC may have been more obvious than the most obvious of them all.

To Florida fans and SEC fans and fans all over the country, I’m not bitching. I’m not saying the Gamecocks would have won, and I’m not trying to change the score or stats. Moreover, apparently there was a facemask that wasn’t called on a Gamecock on the same play, and I get that. However, in the name of sportsmanship and athletics, and paid referees, someone needs to hear and own this stuff, such as five or so seconds of wrong.

We all witnessed 40 yards of “holding.” FORRTTY YARDS OF HOLDING in front of everyone in the stadium, everyone watching this particular game on TV, and everyone watching ESPN highlights, Facebook feeds, Tweets, memes and on and on and on.

As I sat there watching, I wanted to give something the benefit of the doubt. Then the commentators went to the “booth referee.” I thought, OK, these guys usually give a calm and collective perspective on things, at a super professional level.

What we heard, “The hand is in a strange place. He does have the jersey but what you look for with a hold is did he take a step away from the defender. The defender looks like he is satisfied to run side by side with the runner down field. I’m glad there was no call.” Matt Austin.

Again, to Gators, I’m not trying to change things and realize mistakes are made all the time. That said, there is a fundamental flaw here. This looks weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeird…

Had to blog about this one….

South Carolina Hospitality.

Wednesday afternoon Elizabeth Woodring Ross and I had a 1:00 listing appointment in super hot Lexington, SC. As we walked up a few steps to the front door, we were greeted by this gracious setting these amazing homeowners set out for anyone who delivers mail/packages to their home.

Bringin’ life’s perspective back a few notches, goin’ up for a 10,000-foot view, and taking a few deep breaths from our busy lives and all that…how cool is this?

No strings, just genuinely nice & kind.

I’m gonna propose this gesture for our front porch to the family.

I’m sure our girls will love it as much as I do…

Forest Acres Area @$111/!

Heads up to my Forest Acres/Forest Lake/Arcadia Lakes area lovers!! Liz Black put 6459 Bridgewood Road on the market the other day and some of you may need to see it.

“Bridgewood” is a solid, all brick home just off of Trenholm Road. Having 2,829 square feet with 3 beds and 2 full baths, the house has more space than most Forest Acres ranch style homes ($111/sq. foot!). As you can tell from the pics, a former cracked tile back patio/porch has been enclosed and serves as a very cool den/family room.

Other than being close to anything & everything Forest Acres, Downtown Columbia, and I-77, it’s worth mentioning that “Bridgewood” is very close to Rockbridge Club, which is an awesome swim and tennis facility….some would say Columbia’s best. We used to be members of the Rockbridge Club and loved it until we moved into a neighborhood with a community pool.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about this updated home @ 29206, please email or call/text her @ 803-460-9050. As you can see the house is a pleasure to show and you know we’re never too far away from Trenholm Plaza!

Thank you!

KW Palmetto Loves Growing Together!

Today 500 of the top Keller Williams REALTORS in North and South Carolina met in Charlotte to attend the annual Agent Leadership Council Clinic led by the legendary Gene Rivers…and it was awesome.

Within KW Market Centers (offices) around the world, the “ALC” is comprised of the agents that are in the top 20% of production that wants to serve, respectively. The ALC effectively serves as the “Board of Directors” of the Market Center. Sometimes I think of it as the Senate of the office.

The ALC appoints chairs of different committees and the designated chairperson recruits members that would like to serve their specific committees. The ALC meets once a month and discusses and votes on policy and procedures, including budget matters. The Council also helps new REALTORS launch their business the right way, and experienced REALTORS grow their businesses and in turn, expand their lives (more time with family!).

One of the reasons KW is the largest real estate company in the world is because it is run and governed by our REALTORS. KW is an open book company as we print the budget monthly for all of our REALTORS to see, right down to the paper towels. It’s pretty ingenious, and while every business on earth strives for a happy and awesome office environment, KW agents are bound together by the agent profit sharing opportunity, if they choose (That’s another blog post!).

The folks in the second image above is comprised of folks that attended the ALC Clinic – Brenda Meyer (Market Center Administrator), Eric Tucker, Candy Limehouse, Renee Royall, Scott Taylor (Operating Partner), that’s me, Matt Carroll (Market Center Team Leader), Linda Fischer, Andrew Morrison (Tech LABS Ambassador), Bethany Way, Alex Roberts, and Penny Broach.

I want to thank and congratulate these servant leaders for their willingness to attend the clinic and potentially serve on KW Palmetto’s ALC. If done well, serving on the ALC will provide an opportunity to change people’s lives, as well as their own. I’m proud to be in business with them and ready to change more lives through real estate!

If you or anyone you know is thinking about a career change into real estate sales or if you’re an existing REALTOR looking for a better way to do it, please email, call/text 803-447-8683, or IM me on Facebook.

Thank you!!!

Franklin Jones
