JOHNSBURY, VT – Realtor, author, and speaker Debbi DiMaggio is just back from Doris Bergman's 7th Annual Style Lounge at Fig and Olive on Melrose Place in West Hollywood, California, where she debuted her latest book, Real Estate Rules! 52 Ways to Achieve Success in Real Estate and shared one of her favorite causes and charities close to her heart, Give Back Homes. Emmy nominees, Emmy recipients and other talented celebrities filled the room and chatted with Debbi about her latest book, Real Estate Rules!, the current real estate market, and their next project.
Real Estate Rules! is not just for Realtors, but a guide for anyone seeking to brand a product and achieve success as a leading entrepreneur in today's high-tech fast-paced world. Debbi doesn't expect you to be like her. She says, “You are your most important asset. No matter what line of business you are in, clients seek to work with people they like, admire, and connect with. Business is about people. People connect with like kind.” But of course, she notes, "you must be skilled and knowledgeable, too."
Real Estate Rules! is a handy guide, and a quick and entertaining tool you'll want to keep close on hand to draw from at any time. Rule #11, "Keep Up with the Kardashians," is one of Debbi's favorite Rules. Here’s why: Whether you love them or hate them, the Kardashians are always in your face. They are simply genius marketers. Utilizing social media in business these days is a must, not an option.
Debbi has many tools in her arsenal, as should anyone in business. One of her favorites is Feng Shui Guide and Master Michele Duffy. Michele assists Debbi and her husband and partner Adam Betta with their own personal home and surroundings by offering clearings, as well as hiring Michele to Feng Shui their clients’ homes. "Whether she's offering space clearings for the homes we are selling or offering blessings, personal coaching, or helping us to maintain balance in our fast-paced stressful lives, Michele is one of our most valuable assets," explains Debbi. Michele, a practicing Buddhist, routinely studies with the Dalai Lama.
So no matter who you are…or what you do—Realtor, Actor, CEO—it’s your job to grow your business and your brand. Real Estate Rules! is a great tool for anyone seeking to stand out and rise above the competition.
