Time. Mine is valuable. Is yours? One thing that agents struggle with is being in control of their time. How often have you popped out to show property at the last minute? Or had to cancel a personal event because one of your customer/clients needed to see you? What about the Buyer who can only look at properties every other Saturday from 4-7 pm? Do you work with them? I don’t.
Here’s a fact. There are NO real estate emergencies.
Here’s another fact. You will NEVER be caught up. There will always be another call to make. Another website to update.
If you want to have lasting success in this business and avoid burn out you MUST get control of your time. Work by appointment only.
Don’t let others dictate your schedule. Don’t do same day appointments. Just let them go. It will save you a lot of aggravation in the long run. If people don’t respect your time they will never respect the relationship. That’s a fact.
Let folks know at first contact how you work and when you work. People will appreciate knowing these things up front. If your schedule doesn’t fit with theirs then just let them go. We can’t work with everybody.
Once you set boundaries with your time a funny thing will happen…..you’ll start attracting people that will work within your time frames. And because of this you will be less stressed and you will become better at what you do.
Do you believe that? Well even if you don’t it’s still true. You just need to trust me on this one. Can you do that?
Do you need a new Broker?
