Realtor® Randy Oetken Earns CNE Designation

Coeur d’Alene, ID  October 26—

Randy & Christy Oetken, Realtors (R)The Oetken Group of Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty proudly announce that Randy Oetken, Realtor®, has now earned the Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation.  This designation is achieved by real estate professionals who have successfully completed formal training in the art of negotiation.

Agents who receive this certification are in the top 1% of all agents nationally.

The Certified Negotiations Expert (CNE) designation was created to recognize agents who have taken the extra step to receive professional negotiation training. It indicates advanced training and skill development in this key area, and clients can be much more confident in their agent’s ability to help them achieve their desired goals if the agent has earned the CNE designation.

With professional negotiation skills, agents will typically obtain better results for their clients. CNE agents have a powerful competitive edge because of their ability to uncover information effectively, get more and give less during sales/purchase negotiations, and retain control over desired outcomes.

 

Bottom line: CNE agents know how to influence and persuade others more effectively than agents without professional negotiation training.

 

Randy and Christy Oetken have been Realtors ® with Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty since 2000.  They are consistently top-producing agents in North Idaho, and were recognized as Windermere’s Top Listers in 2011.

GREAT QUOTE: Consistency & Hard Work!

Good Morning, Friends!

Here is another powerful quote that came to us from the Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty weekly E-Newsletter.

I still don’t get why people are so surprised that the turtle beat the rabbit over the long run. Consistent effort, no matter how small, sparks magic, fills sails, butters bread, turns tides, instills faith, summons friends, improves health, burns calories, creates abundance, yields clarity, builds courage, spins planets, and rewrites destinies. – TUT.com

Whatever our challenges today, we are encouraged to KEEP AT IT!  We encourage you to do the same.

Make it a great day!

~Randy & Christy

In Memorium: Inspirational Quote by Steve Jobs

Dear Friends,

The following quote by Steve Jobs was included in this week’s Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty weekly e- newsletter.  We thought it was particularly appropriate to send along to you this morning:

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life . Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.” -Steve Jobs in an interview with CNN Money March7, 2008

What are you doing today?  This week?  This year?

What are you doing with your brief life?

We are asking ourselves this question this morning, remembering once again, a great man, who spent his brief life doing what he felt was important.

A timely and poignant reminder to us all.

Let’s live today for what’s really important.  How about it?

~ Randy & Christy
