Doing More with Less Time in Real Estate
As a real estate agent you may struggle with getting the most out of your day. So to maximize your time in the real estate world use these tips when you’re planning your workweek:
Increase productivity by increasing intensity. Establish and meet deadlines with no option for procrastination.
Devote most of your time to your most productive activities, including prospecting, lead follow-up, listing presentations, buyer interviews, showing property, and writing and negotiating contracts.
Set an 11 a.m. rule. Get into the office early and complete your prospecting and lead follow-up before 11 a.m., which is when the world around a real estate office gears up and the distractions begin.
Time block your way to success. Schedule your week, reserving and protecting blocks of time for the following activities: personal activities, direct income-producing activities, appointments, administrative tasks, and flextime, which you can use to put out fires, make emergency calls, and handle unscheduled tasks without losing control of your overall schedule.
Turn your car into an auto-university. Unless you’re with clients, don’t turn on the engine without tuning into a personal-development program.
