As you strive to improve market share, client lists, and commissions in commercial real estate brokerage, your most important resource is that of time. You simply have to make every minute in your working day count, by focusing on the right things. (NB – You can get our other free commercial real estate broker resources here)
Let’s say you have 8 to 10 hours in the average working day where you can do some valuable things relating to your career. At least half of that time can be lost to the the unavoidable pressures of administration, clients, and team issues.
Some things you cannot avoid, so I get that…….. however at least 1/3rd of your business day must be well controlled towards the outcomes that you seek.
In this audio recording, I talk about the valuable resource of time in a property career and how you should use it. In sales, leasing, and property management, the factors of time will impact your day, so set up some rules. As the seasons of business change during the year, measure your brokerage efforts against an index of effectiveness.
In commercial real estate brokerage today, your time is a valuable resource and should be optimized in each and every way possible. You will have many pressures coming to you throughout the working day of the working week, and some of those pressures will change your priorities. Ultimately you can lose focus without some good controls and priorities.
The clients and the people that we work with can be very demanding. The priorities that you set today for tomorrow can shift and changes the day starts. A good degree of discipline is required to manage your time and your tasks as a commercial real estate broker.
There is a simple message to be remembered here. If you remain in control and focus on the critical elements of your business, there is a good chance that you will succeed in the ways that are important to you. If you allow others to divert your business activities away from prospecting, marketing, and client contact, you will likely find that your industry career takes a different direction and perhaps starts to stall.
Commercial real estate brokerage can provide you with all the opportunities and rewards that you seek. Manage your time deliberately so that you can stay on task when it comes to business growth and market share.
In this audio recording, John Highman talks about the importance of time management and task control in brokerage today. Listen to John as he explains important things that really matter when it comes to the property industry and your future in it.
Time is one of the most valuable resources that you have in commercial real estate brokerage. The way that you use your time will impact the results that you seek with clients, listings, inspections, and commissions.
Consider the events of the last week in your diary.
Could you have approach things more effectively?
Are there times where you could have focused your energy in different directions for better results?
Of course the answers to these questions are an affirmative yes in every respect. In hindsight we can all improve our results and our effectiveness in property brokerage. The trick here is to build that strategy into each and every working day.
Don’t waste your time on the things that really don’t matter. Understand your priorities as a broker or an agent. Get things done specifically and directly with a focus on new business and commissions.
Here is an audio recording by John Highman focusing on the importance of time management and task management in commercial real estate brokerage today.
