For agents, there tends to be great comfort in knowing they have an office to use should they desire.
Working remotely can have its advantages. The location never matters. Here are three great tips from real estate pros about working outside the office.
Three Tips for Working from Anywhere!
The internet is an integral part of any business, and you’ll need it if you’re going to market in the real estate world. Great advice; everyone who works remotely needs a good internet connection. When you are unavailable for in-person interaction, using your favorite conferencing technology to see your clients’ faces or to talk through the conflicts of the day with the team is more important than ever. It will take the stress out of texts and email communication while not in the office.
2. Be Organized
No matter where you are sitting, make sure you are organized. It can relieve the stress of working from the beach, car, or dining room table. The best organizing tool on everyone’s phone and computer is the calendar. Scheduling your time and knowing when things can be moved to accommodate a new client, a new call, or time for extra work is a great way to take on last-minute requests. No one wants to look at the clock at 4 pm, and ask themselves what I did today?
Do you have an appointment-based job? Apps like Calendly can help customers sign up for open slots on your calendar without the back-and-forth emails.
3. Bring Supplies and Plan Ahead
How often, even from the comfort of your home, have you procrastinated on doing your next big task because you do not have the right pen, or the room temperature is not correct, someone interrupts you, or somehow you need a beverage refill? Being prepared is how remote workers get through the day. You might not understand why there is a wine opener in their work bag, why they carry granola bars, or why they have a charger for every phone, but they are ready for anything. If it is taking a call for a client in your car or back-to-back meetings while you are at the beach, these three tips are the key to success. Being able to provide the best service to your client no matter the location, so they can have the keys to their new dream home is how realtors have been doing it for years.
