I first learned of a Japanese term “Kaizen” from Coach Jim Young at West Point, where I was a lowly offensive lineman for the Army Football Team. Coach Young explained Kaizen to us as the concept of continuous improvement.
Jim Young taught that the way to move from a losing program to a winning program was to find improvement, in all areas, all of the time. It was no fluke that Coach Young made the College Football Hall of Fame.
He taught us that you never are standing still, that the competition behind you is always chasing you, so you have to keep the target moving. Everybody is trying to catch up to where you are, so moving forward is the only way to stay on top.
I try to instill a Kaizen approach to real estate brokerage with all of our Joe Manausa Real Estate agents and staff. We strive for continual growth and improvement in all that we are doing, and our recent web site rebuild is a prime example of our company's quest for improvement.
Tallahassee Real Estate Web Site Features
For those of you who have been regular readers of the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, you will know that we have launched a very fast Property Search Tool that generated a lot of positive feedback even during the Beta testing phase.
For those of you who really like to "study" the market, our Tallahassee Housing Report has been launched and will become an even better resource than our previous Market Bulletin. This tool is already filled with more than 30 different charts, graphs (and analysis) of the Tallahassee real estate market.
An exciting addition to our real estate web site is the Tallahassee Foreclosures Page which will also feature a "best buy list" of short sale homes for sale in Tallahassee. We are currently building this page and it should be available really soon. As many of our Tallahassee home buyers are asking about short sales, we figured having a convenient list on our site would make a great improvement.
Another area of our site that has (and will be) improved greatly features our team and our recent activities. The CENTURY 21 Manausa and Associates Team is doing a lot of great things in Tallahassee, and we will use this section of the Tallahassee Real Estate Web Site to get the word out on our great team members. Nobody has better agents and staff than Joe Manausa Real Estate in Tallahassee!
