Executing Consistently Results in Accomplished Goals | Takes Patience

Most real estate agents set goals. They usually cover a variety of topics beyond income. If I were to take a jab at guessing the percentage of real estate agents who actually achieve their goals, I think that figure might be disappointing.

Goals require a plan of attack, and many know how they will proceed. However, herein lies the problem. It’s ready, set and… That’s the issue.

The “Go” is missing.  Executing the methods consistently that will lead to success and reaching short term goals never gets off the ground properly. The agent might have energy and enthusiasm that lasts almost 30 days but without immediate gratification.  That’s the issue that results in the demise of the journey to reach those goals.

The money is invested for the first 30 days. The time is devoted for that period, as well. The first exhausting and frustrating sigh is next, along with the statement of “I just wasted a bundle of money.” Hence, the death of setting goals.

Consistent is not defined as 30 consecutive days. In a tough market, it could easily be one full year. Branding is king and it requires consistent marketing and visibility, trumped with a slogan that’s memorable and a logo that makes sense.

A major goal for real estate agents is to become “known” and “recognized” as a local real estate agent with a niche that follows that reputation.  This does not happen in 30 days.

Goals become reasonable to accomplish when one is branded in the marketplace. Goals change when the market changes, but all other factors remain the same in the real estate profession.

Be prepared for a lengthy period of time in a sellers’ market to accomplish executing “consistently.”

Just a thought for the moment…. Back to the sun!!

Time and patience...two things many new agents do not want to invest in. They are a big part of the reason we have such high turnover rates with newbies in this industry. You have to be in this for the long haul to see lasting effects.

Barbara, When those goals are not met, which we know can happen in this business, many agents lose their stamina, interest and their staying power. That's why there is such a high turn-over rate in Real Estate...

I heard my broker once say that we need to budjet 25% of our income to working our business which included our past clients and sphere of influance.  I find myself doing that still today.

Consistency is critical in this field. So many agents ride that roller coaster of business due to now staying consistent and always working towards tomorrows business.

Good morning Barbara Todaro ,

So many want instant gratification thus spend more time trying to find shortcuts like buying leads  instead of marketing themselves and becoming a player in the real estate market. It takes time, it doesn't happen over night! You  have to consistently market until you become a household word! Congratulations on a well deserved featured post.

Helping others create goals with consistent steps (and motivation) used to be my full time job as a teacher / school counselor.  This should be easy for me right?
I have probably purchased more books with a motivation or consistency theme since starting in real estate - than ever before.  I need that daily dose of inspiration to help curb the need for instant gratification.
Thank you for sharing Barbara!
And Congratulations on the Feature!

Kay Van Kampen my marketing is a standard routine monthly.... it varies slightly depending on the consistency of the response.... it's usually fairly consistent.... and averages out nicely....

Alesha A. Wilson, M.Ed. I, too, was a teacher and when I was managing, I always hired teachers.... they're communicators and make common sense decisions using the Golden Rule.... 

instant gratification was rare with teaching.... "altering bad habits; teaching new concepts; making adjustments to a variety of social behavior; etc.."

compared to most, you're a pro with "patience"..... teachers need patience.... you have patience and your thoughts on instant gratification are but a spec on the broad fabric of real estate agents.... 

I'm confident you're a strong participant in your marketplace with leadership qualities....

Good morning Barbara Todaro, many new agents think sellers and buyers start lining up at the door with no effort. It takes work, there's no magic pill.  Goals without a plan of attack, are just wishes.
