There Are A Couple Things That He And I Have In Common And Many More Where We Are Not In Common
Roger Staubach was a Naval Officer, as was I. Roger Staubach was in the Supply Corps which is the Business Unit in the Navy, and so was I. Roger Staubach was color blind and that was why he was in the Supply Corps, as was I. When Roger got out of the Navy, he went into Real Estate, as did I.
And Roger won the Heisman Trophy, and I did not. Roger won Super Bowls, and I did not. Roger sold his company for triple digits millions, and I will not. Roger has a net worth today of over $600M, which he deserves.
Excellent Lesson To Be Learned By Studying Roger’s Real Estate Career
He specialized in the rental of Commercial Property. However, he only worked with tenants and never took listings, although he was asked to do so many times. Roger believed that it is next to impossible to be perfect dual agent, and he could tell prospects that their interests were always paramount. A specialize my friends. You cannot do everything well.
It is also believed that Roger made the term “Hail Mary Pass” popular when he completed a 50 yard pass to Drew Pearson in the closing seconds of a 1975 playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings. After the game, Roger, a devout Catholic, said, “Well, I guess that you can call it a “Hail Mary” because you throw it up and pray.” There was little more to it. He also said, “I pump faked to get Paul Krause to delay helping Nate Wright.”
When I Was Selling And Syndicating Apartment Houses, I Would Always Refer Any Possible Listings Of Homes To The Experts
I could not compete with their knowledge of the market, the disclosures, and the nuances of selling homes. Also, they could not compete with me on commercial sales. Two different worlds.
After getting started I did specialize. Family buildings, no more than 75 miles from my office, more than 60 units, and not too ancient. Later in 1978, my teaching nights at UCLA for 14 years led me to a conclusion that I liked students better than tenants, so here we are. See you in class. LIVE is better.
