Are You Planning to Leave Your Office?
Planning is the process of thinking about and organizing the activities required to achieve a desired goal. The average Real Estate Agent is a poor planner. Why is this? Who knows. Let’s call it interesting and not attempt to dissect the many reasons agent do & don’t do things. The #1 reason real estate agents transition to another company is……..a lack of a strategic plan.
If your current broker/owner of your real estate firm doesn’t have an active business plan, then it may be time to transition to another firm. Why? According to Jim Rohn, “The reason why most people face the future with apprehension instead of anticipation is because they don’t have it well designed.”
Most Transition Plans include the following recommendations:
- create a list of all current listings & pending sales, with all parties contact information
- make copies of all of your files
- create a list of all your past clients and prospects, with complete contact information
- update your photo
Why will your new Broker request you to complete these four tasks? Because your current Broker never taught you how to manage your business. These are very basic steps to running a business. What does your Broker have planned for you?
