I notify all my clients in advance when I'll be away and that I'm available by email if they really, really need me. 99% of the time, they tell me have a good time and do not bother me. I check in on my business daily while on vacation for an hour or two and things always seem to go fine.

It depends. If I am out of the country I have a back up person, if I am on vacation in the country I work on vacation.

Evelyn - If it is stuff I can do on a laptop, or phone calls I can make, I will usually work while on vacation. If showing homes is required, I would have another agent in the office take care of that for me.

I will have someone available to cover for me as a backup, but I like to keep in touch with people, too - with technology these days it doesn't really impede on most vacations to return some emails or phone calls.

I have effectively used associate agents to cover for me. It is good to have experienced and trusted agents who will readily accept referrals. 

Compensation agreements need to be clearly understood by all. I do not ask other agents to work for free.
