Real Estate Business Plan 2009

Real Estate Broker/Owner with RE/MAX Southern Realty, Southern Resort

I teach a real estate class on "How to Write Your Business Plan".  Real estate agents don't plan to fail, they just fail to plan.  With only a few days until the New Year it is now time to set your goals and write your 2009 business plan.  If you would like a copy of the one I teach e-mail me or go to my web-site  and I will make sure you get a copy. Surviving this market has a lot of agents and Broker's freaked out.  It has been a tuff year in a lot of markets.  The full time, professional agents that take this job serious will survive and prosper next year.  I love to fish and there is a saying "its time to either cut bait or fish".  How will you prospect?  How many leads do you need to work?  Where will you prospect? How many Open Houses? Write your plan, set your budget and stick to it.  It works.  I hope this motivates you and next year is your best year ever.  Merry Christmas

Hi Kerry I just took a class on this myself. Working on the finishing touches to the business plan today. It was a great motivator and I learned a lot. Can't wait to make great things happen in 2009! :)
