Every week, we ask a real estate professional for their Short List, a collection of tips and recommendations on an essential topic in real estate. This week, we talked with Jared Anthony, a Realtor with Texas Real Estate & Co., about simple strategies for staying alert and committed to your business.
3. Put all of your buyers, sellers, active transactions and your “hotlist,” in front of you in your office. I use a whiteboard on a wall in my office. Weekly, I total each column for total sales and potential commissions. That’s a big motivator, if not the biggest for sure!
2. Staying alert and committed to my business is to have a schedule and stick to it. I personally color code tasks on my Google Calendar (obviously any online calendar will work). A few examples that I use include: blue for my weekly calls to my top spheres of influences, green for my showing appointments, red for any evening networking/social events, and purple for all of my social media and online marketing efforts; we all know Facebook can suck a few hours out of our day if we let it!
1. The No. 1 tip I have for staying committed to your business is to be organized. Organization is the key for me to stay on point moving quickly from transaction to transaction, listing appointments, open houses and all that life throws at us.I use BackAgent – Personal, to manage all of my transactions. BackAgent is an affordable way to seamlessly move through the transaction process. The program manages the contacts of each transaction, allows for easy, paperless, document management storage and tracking and so much more.
