Real estate agents don’t become top agents just by going through the motions. They prioritize and work hard daily to create fresh content, generate leads, please their clients, and stay up to date on real estate trends. By implementing these seven habits you are sure to make the most out of your day and week. You will be more efficient and your business will thank you.
Real estate agents are essentially small business owners. You must maintain your business, find new clients, and be up to date on market trends. The only way you can do all that successfully, while setting and achieving goals is smart time management.
Plan your day before it starts
Every great real estate agent plans their day so they can achieve maximum productivity. Every Sunday night write in your calendar all the tasks and meetings you have for the week and specifically write an hour-by-hour schedule for your Monday. By doing this you are guaranteed to make the most out of your day. Being organized will allow you to prioritize and accomplish everything you need to get done.
Write for your blog DAILY
This does not mean you have to post a blog daily, but work on it every day. Brainstorm new content and try to put out a blog weekly.
Check all social media
Social media as an agent should be just as essential to you as your email. If you don’t check it daily you are missing out on leads and potential clients. Social media is the number one way to network in your community.
Put clients needs first
Putting the client's needs before your own is vital. By having open communication with clients they will develop a sense of trust with you which will turn into referrals. When you meet with the client for the first time explain the process and a few scenarios that could occur. Let the client know that you are negotiating for them and reply to them quickly.
Practice and study
Every day set aside time to read articles on real estate. Keep up with what is going on with real estate around the country and in your city. You should be up to date on the latest technologies and trends.
Learn more about the neighborhoods
Successful agents are always learning more about their area. They know all the crucial housing and demographic data as well as events going on. Top agents are also involved in the community because they know it’s a valuable method for networking.
