Having read many of the Law of Attraction books I was intrigued when I came across a real estate book based on the same premise while trying to help my daughter, who is in real estate streamline her efforts. From the first page the author gives you hope that you don't have to be part of the Old School mentality and that you can be yourself and still be successful. I would recommend this to anyone in or thinking about getting into real estate.

Glad I read this! After taking a break from the industry, Jennifer has reminded me there's no need for me to follow those God-forsaken sales tactics that are so against my personality. As I read it, I kept thinking: "I knew it! I knew it!". I'm now really looking forward to working as a agent again.

Wish I read this when I first started in the industry. But a great read for anyone in the business who is turned off by cold calling, condescending scripts, and doing other things that annoy people. It's good to know I don't have to do these things to be successful.

Much of the book is spent quoting other authors. The rest of it is Allan-Hagedorn emphasizing that she never listened to any advice from other agents and was only successful because she didn't do what "Old School" agents did.

I actually felt like this was a 3 star book, but I gave it 4 stars because I am not the target audience as I have already been a Real Estate agent for a few years. I do think it's a good read for new agents.

Good advice about following your heart in a business that can eat you alive. I don't agree with some things she says, especially when it comes to blowing off Commission mandated forms regarding Agency. The law is the law, you can lose your license if you don't do it. Justin sayin'....

Must read!

Any agent needs to follow Jennifer's lead. Stop wasting your money and just be the best you can be to your sphere of influence. That's the gist of the book.

If you want a humorous, informative and utterly human portrayal of the Real Estate business, then this is for you. Great ideas throughout and shared with an honesty that is refreshing.
