My short answer would be no, but we all know that isn't possible.  Open houses, taking phone calls, blogging, networking, those quick showings that always happen on Sunday.  It is just part of being in the business and todays society.  You almost have to make yourself accessible to your clients at all times.  Now I am not saying to never take a break.  You have to set some guidelines and some time to yourself and your family.  You just have to be able to manage that free time appropriately.

Ideally no but then again you have to plan your business that way and have a plan to handle all the business-related stuff that can happen on Sundays. I would prefer not to work on sundays, but I always seem to end up doing something work-related.

I have tried very hard to keep my sundays off for the last couple years, and usually there is not a problem. occasionally i have clients that can only view properties on sundays, so i do make exceptions. But with 5 perfectly good weekdays, there is usually never a problem.

i try to stress that my weekends are by apooiontment only, Meaning that my customers can only meet me on those days, and not during the week.

we need to get ourselves out for a couple of days to recharge.
