5 Steps To Get You Back On Track Quickly

5 Steps To Get You Back On Track QuicklyLabor Day signals the end of vacations, the end of Summer and the kids going back to school.  And as the kids are going back to school, it's time for real estate agents to get back to work!

What Were Your Goals?

Can you remember the goals you set back in January? Time is moving very quickly and now you have less than 120 days to accomplish those goals.  But don't fret...it's not too late to get your real estate career back on track and end the year with a bang.  Let's take a look at 5 easy things you can start right now to jump start your business!

My Top 5 For Jump Starting Your Business

1.  Look at your contact list.  If you don't already have one, make a list of your top referral sources and people who you think will buy or sell real estate before the end of the year.

2.  Call People!  Call the people you have identified on number 1. Don't email, don't text...CALL!  This is not the time to be passive.  You need to make some things happen in under 120 days.  If they don't answer hang up...do not leave a voice mail, but make a note to call them back.

3.  Book An Open House.  If you don't have any listings of your own, ask one of the top producers in your office if you can hold one of their listings open.  This is a great way to pick up buyers and sellers.  People looking this time of year are very motivated.  As the weather gets colder you will get more and more serious buyers.

4.  Network.  Take out your former clients for coffee or lunch and ask for some referrals.  Go to functions in your marketplace where you don't know people and make a game out of how many people you can meet.  Your goal is to ask for business, but if the opportunity doesn't present itself, don't force it.

5.   Talk about real estate everywhere!  Okay, you don't want to be obnoxious about it, but you do want to let people know that you are a real estate agent.  Too many times we miss opportunities because people forget that we are real estate agents.  We live and breathe real estate day in and day out, but our friends don't.  They need us to remind them of what we do for a living.

Time To Get Busy

If you want to achieve your goals you will need to get busy fast.  This is not the time to be shy.  Put yourself out there and see what happens.  You have absolutely nothing to lose.  If all else fails, you will have lots of peopel in your pipeline for next year!

Good morning Candy - great post to kick the old keister back in to action. The bump in sales in autumn is usually enough to propel me forward, but I'm going to need this keister kicking in December!

Good morning Candy, loved the motivational post.  Yes, the end of summer can leave one feeling like they've been on an extended holiday.  Good points to help get one back on track!  Enjoy your day.
