I know I've never done 5 buyers in one day. Two for sure, possibly there was a day with three, but don't recall. How many I'll do depends on how many homes need to be show, where they need to be shown, and to whom (some people take an inordinately long time to look at each and every home).

I prefer listing properties to heavy buyer work. I usually dedicate myself to only a few buyers at a time & I usually do not book them all on the same day. I used to work with a great buyer's agent & he said he had done 5  in a day & admitted it was too much.

I would guess my maximum all time to be around seven.  Meet at the property, that's the secret and also enforce your time limits and demand people be on time.

That's crazy but props for your Energizer-Bunnyness!
Back when I showed homes all day every day, I think 3 or 4 was my max and I learned to schedule more gaps in my day from those experiences, because residential buyers are practically never on time and neither are listing agents who need to assist!

I can’t say I have showed that many in a day before. I think three different buyers is my max.

How many of the homes you showed today, did you show to multiple buyers?  That’s the problem here these days. I figured my county as a whole has 46 days of inventory

With real video tours, it is open house on demand. We show less homes and sell more houses now with videos doing the round the clock showings. The buyer calls, wants this house and then we move on to are you all set bank wise and help get the financing. Videos are super and save wear and tear on house after house eenie meenie miney moe. It sorts out the ones they don't want because they can see the back yard, how close homes are and decide yea or nay. I put half the miles on my Jeep these days because of videos that save everyone time. Weather or time of day or distance away. None of those factor keep the show from going on.

More than 20 and five of those purchased 5 quads that day and 3 the following day. All contracts written on the hood of my car and closed within 30 days. We had 17 quads available and 3 agents working the site. My guess would be 80 potential Buyers came by 3 hours on Saturday and 3 hours more on Sunday. Six hours of effort and nothing was left.

Generally only one set of clients. In my market, with such low inventory, and the demand of one client, that's generally all that I can serve. Many buyer clients have been known to consume 6-8 hours of my day showing properties.

Maximum...about 60.

It was an Open House.

Different houses to different buyers would have logistical limits and at the mercy of daylight and Supra lock out. 

I think 6 would be maximum.
