Does this sound like you?
As a real estate agent, you’re good at what you do. People trust you to find the best property in the best locations at the best price - and you deliver.
However, the better you are at your job the more difficult it can be to actually do your job – negotiating contracts and selling properties. Once the sale is made there are many loose ends to tie up including transaction coordination and client follow-up. As a premiere agent you make sure these issues are dealt with, but it takes time away from your ability to negotiate new deals for new and existing clients.
Then there are marketing issues that you are responsible for. After all, if people haven’t heard about you they are less likely to consider your services when a property acquisition is required. Once more, time is taken away from the actual selling so that you can work on a marketing campaign that will provide lead generation.
You’d even like to spend more time with your family, but the better you become at what you do the less time you seem to have available for the ones you love. You wish it were otherwise - you want it to be otherwise, yet there are so many details to work through.
A Cost Effective Dose of Freedom
You care about people and want to see a perfect property match for your clients. Your strategy is simple, yet profound. You work to match the specific need of your client with the best available property and there is great satisfaction when your strategy is fully realized.
There is a simple yet cost effective way to leverage your time both prior to and after a negotiation is complete. The idea of hiring an assistant has merit, but there are times when you don’t really need one, and other times when two might not be enough. Let’s not forget the time it takes to train an assistant either.
