Did I miss the memo?
January rolled around, and every agent in town is looking to work with a Real Estate Virtual Assistant. It’s as if we haven’t been pounding it into your head everyday for the past couple of years, but someone, somewhere flipped a big switch. Whatever it is, it’s great.
Which lead me to Google “Real Estate Goals 2011” to see what has been written on the topic, and what I can take to offer my clients. I found this post on Active Rain titled 2011 Goal Setting Questions for Real Estate Agents written by Joshua Harley.
Here are his questions and my answers for you:
In my experience, most of you are wasting way too much time in front of the computer (you are the over analyzers) OR you have barely spent any time in front of the computer (you’re kind of old school).
For those that spend too much time, that is what I’ll take off your plate first – all those fun little activities that you love so much that keep you from meeting with clients. That’s why I’m not a Realtor – I like it behind the scenes too much.
For those that spend hardly any time at all with their computer (you still use a Rolodex) I’ll become your best friend. All of those tasks that you know you should be doing: newsletters, fan pages, mobile marketing, conversion forms on your site, etc. will be set up and maintained for you.
Your assignment: Analyze your day to day activities. Carry around a notepad and pen and just jot down an entire typical day and then call me. We can work together on a strategy that makes you more productive and in line with your core values (more to come on those later).
2011 can be a great year – if you let it!
Tomorrow’s post will be from Joshua’s second topic: Be a specialist, Pick a Niche for your marketing.
