Sticking to a schedule

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

My coach says that most of the top producers have a schedule and stick to it unless there's a fire in the building or a real emergency.  I, on the other hand knew that I didn't need a schedule, I'm a big girl and know what needs to be done on a daily basis so I tried the check off list for awhile.  I found that I was cramming a lot of miscellaneous into my late afternoons and doubling up on other things, skipping others - actually I realized that I wasn't really working at this Real Estate Career as much as I thought!  I mostly work out of my home and had always said that when I was in the office I was socializing instead of working.

Okay, now I've given in and with the help of my "accountability-buddy" I've actually written up my schedule and I'm stickin' to it!  I'm finding that I actually get more done now than I used to (Real Estate that is).  I'm giving a copy to all my current clients so that they know what I'm doing when they call and why I may not be answering the phone each time.  I tell them what is the best time to call me...I know if they call me two times back to back that it's a real estate emergency - whatever that is!!

Anyway - I'm wondering how many agents - big or small have a schedule and stick to it.  Those of you that don't are you finding yourself becoming big producers?

Hi Barbara

Being flexible is important. Scheduling appointments that may overlap can cause inherit problems often you will spend more time with customer than you may have allotted.  I try to allow ample time when I am doing multiple appointments, preferably I like to stagger them whenever possible. This way each customer does not feel rushed and it reduced Realtor Stress simultaneously.

Every day is different. Some very hectic others not so hectic which allows time to get caught up on something else piled a mile high on my desk.  I have found that working from my  home office means that I work longer than I would at the regular office often from the wee hours of the AM to dusk.
