Hearer of Prayers

1 Samuel 1:1-30

God hears the prayers of the sincere. This is His revelation to me today. Good news, don’t you think?

My profession as a real estate broker can be discouraging. Just like Hannah, I sometimes feel barren or not producing any fruit. Most of the time, I lose a transaction or a close. Very disappointing indeed especially if you want your wife to stay home and take care of your kid.

Through Hannah’s story, God reveals the steps we need to take when discouraged.

Step 1: Pray Earnestly / Sincerely. When Hannah was being ridiculed, she didn’t fight back, complain or grumbled. She just prayed.

Step 2: Get encouragement from friends or counselors. When Hannah heard Eli said: “May God hear your prayers!” Didn’t Hannah feel uplifted? Don’t you feel good when your friends console you?

Step 3: Leave and entrust your worries to God. Hannah, after praying and hearing Eli’s encouragement, went back home and ate. She went back to her normal daily routine, forgot about her troubles for she left it with God. Don’t you feel a sense of relief when you just let go?

May Hannah’s story inspire you. May you remain hopeful in times of barrenness or despair. May God grant your requests.

Glory to God.

Benefits of Commercial Real Estate

Before we begin, here’s our working definition of Commercial Real Estate.


If you are a new Real Estate Broker you’re probably thinking of what niche to focus on. Let’s face it, you can never handle everything the real estate industry offers. It is just too vast and spreading yourself too thin is a disadvantage. In your profession, just like in any activity you want to excel at, you need focus. In Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki‘s book, Why We Want You To Be Rich said it best: FOCUS; Follow-One-Course-Until-Successful.


Here are a few benefits of going in to commercial real estate. First, you don’t need to work on weekends or at  nights. You see, most of your clients looking for commercial property will be business people who want to rest on weekends or after work. Unlike residential real estate where most of your client’s are working during weekdays and can only view properties on weekends or after work. So, with commercial realty, you get to keep your weekends with the family.


A second benefit is: There are no barriers to one’s progress. Unlike other work, you need to go up the corporate ladder in order to become on top. And sometimes you never reach the top because you get fired. With commercial real estate, you become your own boss and everything you invest in your profession is for your gain. You can only get better as time pass by. Nobody can really take that away from you so you progress. Your progress will depend on your connections, talent and the effort or passion you put in.


The last benefit I can think of is it’s earning potential. There’s no doubt that commercial real estate is bigger business than residential real estate. Maybe that’s why serious brokerages like CBRE and KMC Mag Group focused on it and stuck with it.


So there, here are the three benefits I can think of why you may want to focus on commercial real estate. Can you think of other benefits? Please post them below…
