Every real estate agent goes about their day differently, and such is the case for SPiRALNY agents. At SPiRALNY, we make it a point to not micromanage our agents or dictate how they conduct their workdays. However, there are certainly are a few daily habits and practices that help agents advance in their real estate careers. Here is what a typical day in the life of a SPiRALNY agent looks like.
Start the Day on a Positive Note
At SPiRALNY, we encourage all of our agents to start their day on a positive note. Beginning your day with a positive mindset is extremely important in real estate as it keeps you motivated, encourages productivity, and ensures you are in the right headspace to deal with clients.
A great way of doing this is by implementing a morning routine. This will look different for everyone but may include working out, reading, or listening to a podcast. We encourage our agents to figure out what works best for them and what motivates them to do their best work.
Visit the Office and Check Your Emails and Socials
Our agents are not required to visit the office on a daily basis but we recommend that they do at SPiRALNY. Working in our office helps agents focus on their tasks but also allows for them to interact with management and their colleagues. As a team-oriented firm, we believe it is important for agents to see one another so they can offer each other support or motivate one another to reach their goals.
Once our agents are in the office, they typically catch up with their emails and check their social media accounts. This is also a good time for agents to call back clients or set up meetings. With social media playing such a significant role in marketing your real estate business, it is important for agents to allocate time on a daily basis to posting content and engaging with others.
Take Care of Daily Tasks
After getting settled in the office, SPiRALNY agents typically get started on their daily tasks, such as taking care of their paperwork, developing their marketing plan, or coordinating showings and open houses. Real estate is a generally independent career path so it is up to each agent to manage their time and figure out what tasks they want to take care of each day.
Prospect New Clientele
Another major part of a SPiRALNY agent’s day is prospecting new clients. This may mean reaching out to people you know or past clientele or sending out emails or promotional material. It is easy to get caught up in the deals you are currently working on so we encourage our agents to dedicate time every day to building their client network.
Another part of a real estate agent’s workday is conducting showings. Showings typically take place on weekends but we encourage agents to use their weekdays to prepare for the showing. This means working with clients to ensure the property is in good shape or setting up the particulars of the open house.
Work On Self Improvement
Something we place an emphasis on at SPiRALNY is our agents constantly striving to learn more about the industry and improve their business. While it can be easy to get carried away with the taking care of clients or other daily tasks, it is important for agents to allocate a specific time in their workday strictly to self-improvement.
One way SPiRALNY agents work on improving themselves professionally is by taking advantage of the training materials we offer at our firm. If agents have already gone through these resources, we encourage them to research other training materials or continuing education opportunities on their own.
In real estate, the market is constantly fluctuating and there is always something new to learn. Even with years of experience, agents should make it a point to search out ways of improving their business or becoming more informed.
In a career path as independent as real estate, it is important for agents to take charge of their days, set up a regimented schedule, and allocate time to tasks and activities that are important for them to do well. While every SPiRALNY agent spends their day differently, these are just some of the things we recommend every agent dedicate some time to throughout their week.
