It's time...

By Maria Mak - Sut... on July 9, 2014 - 5:06pm

It's time to pick up my suitcase and be a vagabond...

So close yet so far.

Out of focus ,

Estrayed,

Lost in the clouds of my high nine,

Attainable 

Or unattainable , 

Disturbed ,

Or unInterrupted ,

Getting foggier and foggier,

Fading away in the waves of our foolish dreams.

 

Drawing and written by Maria Mak

Steed grazing in the reed - a poem for her beloved sis by Maria Mak

By Maria Mak - Sut... on July 4, 2014 - 10:51pm

steed grazing in the reed,

 

Steed grazing in the reed,

mist streaming from the ground, 

standing stonily in the favonian wind,

sobbing silently in the winter rain,

may i honor the secret of our sharing, 

The lady with a flower ring...

By Maria Mak - Sut... on June 28, 2014 - 11:35pm

I will marry you in the favonian wind .
Let the seagull be our wedding pastor ,
And all the turtles be our ocean guests. Written by Maria Mak

Maria Mak-Burnaby Real Estate -Stop focusing on your competition, focus on YOU

By Maria Mak - Sut... on January 27, 2014 - 10:55pm

Jim Rohn said it best when he said, “Don’t wish for things to be easier, wish for YOU to be better!” This is advice I think a lot of us could use more in our lives. If you study the law of attraction, you learn that when you worry and focus on your competition, you attract more competition, SO STOP DOING IT!

If you subscribe to the idea that there is plenty of whatever it is you do out there for everyone, you stop worrying about competition. When I am out and about at events and businesses, I hear a lot of business owners and real estate professionals talk about their competition, and typically in a negative way.

There are two main reasons not to do this. Number one is if you subscribe to the idea of the law of attraction, which I do, you understand that energy flows where attention goes and you focusing on your competition only creates more competition for you! A great example is elections. The media talks about how bad someone is and they end up winning!

The second main reason is when you talk about people or competition, you are reducing the amount of time you can think and talk about your own business. I don’t care who you are, your business can always be improved! Spend your time and energy thinking of how to make your own business better and that is time well spent!

Maria Mak- Burnaby Real Estate - 16 wys to list and sell your home quicker and easier

By Maria Mak - Sut... on January 27, 2014 - 10:45pm

When selling a home , the marketing effort must be coordinated on all fronts. It also must be superior to the competition. This is especially true in a buyers' market where the homes sitting on the market seemingly outnumber the potential home buyers. In such an environment, you must lift your home out from this crowd and highlight it in the best way possible. You must out-think the competition.  

All good marketing efforts begin life as a sound, basic plan and then evolves to fit the particular property and situation. Cut from whole cloth and then tailor-made, such a plan will incorporate innovative new ideas and "rearrange" old ones.

Maria Mak - a poem for my beloved sis

By Maria Mak - Sut... on October 26, 2013 - 3:35pm

Walking deep into the roaring black ocean in the dark, 
Holding tight into each other hands in our dizzy merry go round, 
Dream on...We will be the last pair of tin soldiers to fall.
