Why OurBlock?

Despite the fact that real estate advertisers profit from the illusion of their effectiveness, most real estate sales originated by word of mouth. OurBlock is a Mult-level word of mouth process via subscription to the XDALE Directory.

The first subscriber can choose to “Do Work”; or not. With a ponzi scheme you do no work. This is NOT a ponzi scheme, it is a referral system.

“Doing Work” means (1) nominating THREE or more personal acquaintances to become subscribers to OUR BLOCK. (2) Explaining the features and benefits of membership. Once this is achieved the “Work is Done”. The first subscriber then becomes “An Ancestor”. All transactions (to 10 generations of DESCENDANTS) that is done via the XDALE Directory automatically returns an AMOUNT to the wallet of the subscriber as well as to his Ancestors’ wallet.The AMOUNT is calculated in fractions of bitcoin or cash.

So as to be automatically paid, every subscriber is initially linked to a unique WALLET that has public and private KEYS.

Dear Proprietor,

Bitbrowze is a peer-to-peer network of vendors using a downloadable d-app to communicate and transact via a smart-contract on the Ethereum blockchain.

A Smart-contract is a distributed computer application or d-App; it is computer code that allows a resources owner (such as a proprietor) to create (mint) a token, such as an NFT (non-fungible token, look it up). The resource owner may mint it as a vanity project or s/he may mint it for profit. Bitbrowze (BBRZ) is a Smart Contract with the identification number 0xc5bb8214455d5375fc76cb5f8ad0689aa755d02990ced523808e6b8d075469a9 located here: https://bit.ly/3JqeBPo

A subscriber with his personal resources and assets makes use of this smart-contract to mint business documents such as Landlord-Tenant Rental Agreements, Deeds to Real Estate, Ownership Title to Collectible items, and much more. A vendor could mint an agreement with a supplier, for example. A Municipality or Government Department could Mint ballots for purposes of incorruptible voting records,…and so on.

Built into the d-app, can be features such as a silent auction, a personal wallet, a p.o.s checkout that accommodates payments in currencies and crypto-currencies, an ‘Oracle’ that triggers a response when some pre-determined event happens, such as when a certain agreed-upon date or time arrives.

Introduction


The Online Phone Bank feature helps organizations efficiently manage their electronic telephone communications.

Paper Phone Canvassing Lists can be generated from the Create Lists and Files page and are not considered part of the Online Phone Bank.

There are many advantages of using an Electronic Phone Bank for your telephone communications. They include the following:

  • You do not need to print your list – The caller information and survey script are displayed on your computer screen.
  • You can distribute your list to thousands of potential callers in minutes.
  • No additional data entry – Callers can click call responses during the calls. You can even enter new phone number, email, address information plus comments.
  • You can have logical branch surveys and even use multiple surveys.
  • You can call both Voters and People.
  • You can monitor caller activity and productivity.
  • You can schedule work shifts and enter event RSVPs from the same interface.
  • Voters who have returned their ballots are automatically removed from calling universes without any additional effort by the organizations.

The Online Phone Bank page allows you to create Online Phone Banks, which can accessed from any where as long as the participants have the link to the phone bank. The Online Phone Bank use Electronic Surveys, and access to these phone banks can be limited to registered phone bankers, or open to the general public as long as they self-register as a phone banker. Once created, the list generated in the Online Phone Bank becomes static and will not update to reflect the changes in your universe. Once ballots have been returned during the election cycle, we will go through each phone bank remove the individuals who have already voted.

Daily Minimum Standards

Superstar behavior

Superstars have goals in the five areas of life: family, financial, mental/spiritual, physical, and educational. Superstars don’t just talk about these goals, they have them posted in their offices and review these goals daily. This is the reason they are working.

Hint: Balance is a myth. And you’re focused and accomplishing a specific goal is normal to be out of balance.

Superstars have a schedule and take it seriously. Their schedule is based on dollar productive activity. In real estate, this only means prospecting, lead follow-up, pre-qualifying, presenting, negotiating, and closing ~ lather, rinse, repeat.

Do the things you don’t want to do but you don’t want to do them at the highest level, consistently. When you do, you will have, be, and experience the things in life others never will ~ Tim and Julie Harris.

Superstars don’t worry that doing the above is sometimes tedious and they don’t start and stop what they’re learning all the time. They know that repetitive boredom pays off but only when momentum is reached. Stopping and starting creates the stopping and starting of income. Staying on the course create predictable, profitable outcomes.

Superstars have a lead generation wheel. Imagine an old fashioned wagon wheel. Can you see the old wheel with all the spokes. The strongest Wheels always had the most spokes. If a wheel with minestrone supposed to rock along the road, the wheel would have no problem rolling on down the road. No imagine the wheel with only two or three spokes. If that will work to hit some rock oh, what would happen? It would collapse.

For the sake of your real estate business, your goal should be to have as many strong spokes as possible. Spoke is a source of business. What 99% of all agents do is rely too heavily on too few spokes (sources of leads). It’s critical that you have a lead generating wheel with a minimum of seven strong spokes. Examples of potential spokes include such things as prospecting, expireds and FSBO’s, your Centers of Influence, geographic Farm, social Farm ( social networking), REO’S, BPO’S, Radio/TV advertising, professional organizations, unions, Credit Unions, sports teams (your softball teams or kids’ teams), internet marketing, pay per click, various paid lead sources (Zillow), etc

Hint: Do not create a new spoke until the current spoke has been mastered.


 Superstars are relentless with lead follow-up. They can tell you their top 5 prospects of the top off the top of their head, what is motivating these buyers or sellers, and when is their next appointment. They tried these leads on a spreadsheet or wipe off board.

Superstars use scripts and systems consistently. Virtually every aspect of their days is designed around accomplishing their goals. Anyone who is successful is so because he does the same thing over and over.

Work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion said Parkinson’s law.


 Superstars NEVER wing it. They know that a smart man learns from his mistakes a brilliant man learns from the mistakes of others. Follow the path in front of you. Never stop, never slow down.

Superstars devote 10% of their income and 10% of their time to education even when they are producing the income required in meeting their goals. They are constantly improving their skills.

Fact: The more you learn the more you earn~ but only when you take action.

Superstars controls our mind, body, schedule, and wallet. HREU Superstars do a brain dump every day.

Embrace being bored. Know that repetitious boredom pays off. ~ Tim and Julie Harris.

Superstar start with the end in mind.

Superstars always ask for help when they need it. They’re willing to ask for help from colleagues, their coach, or get it from the material available to them at hre you. Remember that our Superstars were not born this way semicolon they learn each of the above in a gradual, sometimes painful or frustrating way. It’s okay to be frustrated, it’s okay to need help. It’s not okay to do nothing

New York Real Estate News


URGENT ALERT- updated 2/10/2020 
DEAR HGAR MLS MEMBERS: As many of you know, on Friday, February 7, 2020, HGAR issued an URGENT ALERT regarding the DOS Guidance issued on January 31, 2020, in which the New York State Department of State (DOS) published an updated “Guidance for Real Estate Professionals Concerning Statewide Housing Security & Tenant Protection Act of 2019 and the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act” (“DOS Guidance”)

IT RELATED TO THE FAQ #5 and PAYMENT OF “BROKER FEES” BY TENANTS. 

A New York judge in Albany has granted a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) this afternoon, halting specifically the DOS’s guidance with respect to FAQ#5 whereby the DOS had barred the payment of Tenant-paid rental commissions (“broker fees”).

The DOS Guidance had prohibited tenants from paying rental commissions in cases where the landlord hired an agent to market the listing.  Early on Monday morning, REBNY, NYSAR and other brokerage firms filed an Article 78 Proceeding requesting a TRO against the DOS, which has been granted. 

To our knowledge, no other part of the DOS Guidance was halted or modified by the TRO. 

UPDATED NOTICE – IN LIGHT OF THE RECENTLY ISSUED TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AND, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, BROKERS AND AGENTS MAY CONTINUE TO COLLECT “BROKER FEES”IN THE SAME MANNER AS WAS CUSTOMARY PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF THE DOS GUIDANCE.
AT THIS TIME, HGAR MEMBERS DO NOT NEED TO MODIFY ANY LISTINGS AS RECOMMENDED BY HGAR’S PREVIOUS ALERT.  

Breaking news, The Real Deal !  (see https://therealdeal.com/2020/02/10/judge-halts-rental-commission-ban/) reported that: “In a statement, REBNY and NYSAR said they look forward to resolving the issue in court ‘in the weeks ahead.’ In the meantime, agents will be able to ‘do business in the same way they did prior to last week’s DOS memo without fear of discipline by the DOS.’

The plaintiffs argued that rental agents would suffer irreparable injury unless the restraining order were issued. The next step in the process would be a hearing on whether a preliminary injunction is justified. It was not immediately clear if the Cuomo administration would appeal Monday’s decision. In to this email to members, REBNY said it would head back to court on March 13.

In the meantime, agents can go back to business as usual. “Landlord’s agents can collect a commission from a tenant until further notice,’ the email said.”
