The life of a real estate professional is notoriously busy - Trying to balance appointments, follow-ups, office time, client meetings, listings, closings and all of the minor details that go into your business can get overwhelming and tiresome. Our Real Estate Virtual Assistant team understands that most real estate professionals are constantly on the go, whether it's in their car between appointments or between offices. Implementing a few small "life hacks" into your daily routine to add organization and seamlessness can go quite a long way. Try one or all of the following tricks, and see what works best in your busy life!
-Make a To-Do List. Each morning, take five minutes to scribble out a quick to-do list. Include everything - phone calls, e-mails, appointments, follow-ups, mailings, errands, etc - that must get done that day. Not only will physically writing it down or typing it out help you to remember each task, but having it with you throughout the day will help you to prioritize and ensure that everything is completed. Oftentimes, minor things can slip as your attention is diverted to other items but being able to glance at your daily to-do list will serve as a reminder of what still needs to be done, even if it's something small or quick.
-Don't be Afraid to Outsource. It can be hard to give up control sometimes, but outsourcing small projects can oftentimes be for the best. Not only does it free up your time for the really important aspects of buying and selling real estate, but you can rest easy knowing that you're meeting all of your deadlines with ease. Whether you choose to hire a Real Estate Virtual Assistant team or have an admin at your office, things such as listing coordination, blogging and general marketing projects can be completed quickly and just as professionally as if you had done it yourself!
-Route Your Day. Working hand-in-hand with your daily to-do list, take a few minutes each morning to give yourself a general route for the day. For example, if you know you have to stop by a listing between 3 and 4 P.M., and that listing happens to be across the street from the post office, then you can mentally plan to mail those cards and letters right before or after. Being aware of your day ahead of time can increase productivity tenfold, and save a lot of time in the long run.
