As a real estate agent, you’re fully aware that time is of the essence! In fact, the saying, time is money, certainly rings true as you deal on a daily basis with this ever-changing market. Oftentimes, your schedule is filled with back-to-back appointments with buyers and sellers and, if you’re constantly having to move appointments around or aren’t giving the time needed to your clients; a deal could fall through.
So how can you free yourself up to focus on the areas in your day that are most important to you? How can you avoid being overwhelmed by endless tasks that you don’t have time to get done? How can you better manage your time?
Here are three key tips that will help you approach each day with a sense of being in complete control of your time. Which can, in turn, result in a more organized approach to your business and further growth!
1. Plan your schedule the night before and hit the ground running- When you’re not in control of your schedule, you invite stress to fill the void. Set and prioritize meaningful tasks to be accomplished. Whether it’s an appointment calendar or a software program, the critical first step to properly managing your time is to organize and schedule your day.
Be careful not to confuse activity with productivity. For example, don’t just block off a couple of hours to make calls. Instead, set measurable activity goals to be accomplished, such as those 15 necessary phone calls you need to make that day.
2. Identify your time bandits- Once you’ve scheduled your day, the next step in managing your time is to recognize and modify old behavioral patterns regarding the improper use of time. Avoid procrastination in all of its attractive forms.
Having a planned schedule helps you say no to time wasters such as online surfing, personal phone calls, long lunches and chatty coworkers. An open door invites continuous distractions. Effective real estate professionals focus on task achievement rather than tension relieving diversions.
Although these steps seem basic, it’s sometimes hard to put them into practice. Yet taking control of your time will be refreshing for you and your business!
Here at RealSupport, our goal is to make your life easier and as stress- free as possible. Our years of real estate specific marketing allows you to give us the basic information and let us run with it! Your time is valuable. Your time is money. Put these three great tips into practice and you’ll find yourself feeling more energized for your clients and personal life.
Feel free to contact us anytime to discuss your needs and what we can do for you!
