a healthy real estate routine is a series of marketing tasks to be performed every week.... and there should be marketing accomplished every day...online and offline..... this should make the phone ring...that's the ultimate goal...

there's no need to pay for leads....learn to market and the leads will come to you....

From day one, control your schedule, don't let it control you.

Need time off for personal things, whether it is hair appointments, Little League coaching, kids activities,  the gym, etc.?  Put them on your calendar as an appt. No one needs to know what those appts are - just block them off the same as you would for a home inspection or a closing.  Be sure you have time for you, your family, your life. 

If you have unexpected (and unwanted) down time, spend it previewing, studying your local market, whatever RE related activities will make you more knowledgable. 

Give every client exceptional service and eventually, you will work 100% by referral.

New Agent - Healthy real estate routine. This is a business, not a hobby. It's a grind so start grinding or return to your old job within 2 years. BUILD YOUR LIST. It is not personal. Those first 2 years is discovering what your REALLY bring to the table then offering your solution. It is your solution, not you, the consumer selects or ignores. So bring/create better solutions. You've got 2 years.

Existing Agent - Healthy real estate routine. You have a database, associates, affiliates, friends, neighbors, fans and raving fans. Help them acheive their goals and remember, eat clean, train dirty. You business is turning into an 80% referral business. Create income optimization stratigies.

Work on touching leads and contacts every day.  If you can discipline yourelf to spend an hour a day on your leads, past clients - your referral base, you will be well ahead of most agents out there.  Do this via emails, note cards you mail, calls and texts.

Start by setting a WORKING schedule advise your clients of your hours if you do most all clients as well as other agents will respect this and know when to expect to reach you. Then stick to those hours otherwise you'll find yourself working from EARLY morning until after midnight frequently. SmartZip Analytics
