When working as a real estate professional, to-do lists can ramp up quickly. Followup usually ends up taking the largest portion of time for someone working as a real estate professional. This doesn’t have to be the case. Agent Legend‘s own Costas Peppas had a talk with Seattle real estate professional, Garrett Brown about how working proactively instead of reactively can be a game changer for you and your business. 

3 Ways to Avoid Burnout Working as a Real Estate Professional

Get Help with Certain Tasks

From the get go, there is a lot to get done every day when running a real estate business. Deciding which tasks can be delegated to another employee or an online platform can save you a lot of time and money. Getting help can include things like hiring an ISA or using automated followup services. Anything that frees up more of your time to focus on other areas of your life and real estate plan, will pay off down the road.

Work With a Coach

An outside perspective can be just the thing you need to break out of a rut. We all get into them now and again, and sometimes that results in our being to close to a problem is system to really see it clearly. Hiring a real estate coach can help to motivate you as well. Coaches often bring extensive industry knowledge to the table, with plenty of ideas and inspiration to keep you and your business innovative and strong.

Create Followup Campaigns

Followup is the most time consuming aspect of working in real estate, but it doesn’t have to be. Creating automated campaigns allows you to communicate quickly and authentically with ever lead that comes your way. Taking time in the beginning to put these in place allows you to rest assured that all of your leads are being contacted, so you can spend more time one-on-one with the leads who convert to close the deal.

Doing these things early on will ensure you have more time to enjoy your life and approach your business in a balanced way. With the extra time you have you can spend more energy on:

  • Your Personal Life
  • Maintaining Your Sphere of Influence
  • Online Presence
  • Continued Real Estate Education
  • One on One Time with Clients

Balancing your responsibilities will help you avoid burnout. As Garrett Brown advises, this requires taking a proactive rather than reactive approach to your business.
