How do I know if I am ready to hire an assistant?
Questions to ask yourself?
Ask yourself these questions, as you consider if hiring a real estate assistant is right for you:
Do you find yourself struggling to find time to call people back?
Do you find that time blocking is no longer effective because you always have another pressing task to do?
Do you sometimes feel like you need to be in two places at the same time? Are you consistently gaining clients (averaging around 20+ closes in a year)? Do you feel like if you continue on your current trajectory, you might experience burnout?
Do you find yourself looking to others for an organization? Do you regularly forget to update your calendar?
Does this cause you to miss important meetings?
So do you need one?
What if you are close or you can feel yourself getting closer to that point. There are some additional questions you should consider. Because you answer no to these you may not be ready after all you are providing for yourself and the assistant at this point.
You are not ready to commit to a schedule- other people are counting on you to show up and be there. Are you ready to communicate? Open yourself and your business to another person- they do not read minds so set expectations.
Are you ready to ask for help and trust other people- don't just do it all yourself?
Are you ready to slow down to speed up? Training an assistant takes some time and when done right launches your business to the next level.

This is probably one of the best books t
Do you have a buddy Reach your goals through accountability!

The key ?? to having successful client relationships in real estate
Are you flexible? Now, I don't mean flexible in say, you know, in an athletic way, but are you flexible in the way that you communicate and how you operate and how you go about in your relationships with your clients and other people in your life outside of real estate? One of the best skills and actually, I don't even think it's a best skill. I think it's one of the most important skills that you need in your arsenal is the ability to understand personality profiles, the ability to say this person's an ana
Start selling more homes with a CMA a day!

Things happen, let's face it. You plan the perfect day and then your dog throws up, your kid throws up, you throw up, somebody's gonna throw up. And when they throw up, the day goes sideways, right? The question is, how do you recover quickly? Because life's gonna continue to throw junk at you. Do you have a checklist, right? What do you do? I remember recently I was asked to speak on stage and my heart was just racing. I wasn't nervous but I must have been because my heart was racing. I had mentally prepar
Schedule time to learn and invest in yourself!
Let's talk about something that a lot of people don't put in their schedule. Time to learn, time to invest in yourself. Do me a favor, go into your schedule right now, and point out what you have scheduled for personal development, for professional development. Probably, not enough time, right?

Let's talk about the difference between an online lead and a referral. Is there really a difference? Absolutely!

They referred me to somebody, I didn't even look them up online. I just cal
The secret to real estate success!
I meet first-time agents all the time, right? Brand new in the business, just outta real estate school. And in Arizona, it takes 90 hours and about $1,200 and you could have a real estate license. They ask me, what's the number one piece of advice that you can give a brand new agent? And it's actually pretty simple and not everybody likes to hear it. It's going all in, don't dabble. Don't be a part-timer. Don't think that you can do this job at a high level while maintaining other parts of your employment.
Your level of Success DEPENDS on your Environment

The benefits of investing in yourself and your business ?
I hear this all the time. I don't have money to invest in my education. I don't have money to invest in my business. Yet, then I see these people stuck and they're not pressing, right?

I'm constantly looking at what I'm putting into my head to help me grow my business. Aligning myself with great mentors and great coaches. At the end of the
Are you being mean to yourself? ??
Are you mean to yourself? Seriously, do you say things to yourself that you wouldn't say to a friend or even a stranger? I'm betting that you probably do. Recently, I witnessed my mom preparing for a doctor's appointment and it was an online doctor's appointment. My mom's in her 60s she just doesn't love technology and the whole time she just kept talking she's like, "I'm not good at this, I'm never going to be able to do this, I hate this, This isn't for me".

Do you try to do it all yourself Start delegating and elevating!
If there's one thing that I see a lot of agents do that I would call a trap that they could get caught in? Is that what they're trying to do at all. They think that they should be their own transaction coordinator, their own social media coordinator, and that they should also be the expert in marketing and who knows what else? They are trying to do it all by themselves and then they wonder, why they're stressed out and why sometimes they're burned out? Don't try to do it all, figure out what your highest be
reMarkable vs iPad
Here's an honest review about the reMarkable versus an iPad. Listen, back in Mother's Day my husband bought me reMarkable. I thought my world was going to change.

It's better to do less than expected than nothing at all | don't be so hard on yourself!
It's better to do less than you expected than to do nothing at all, right? Think about it, so many times I'm coaching agents and they say, "uh, I didn't make my calls" well, tell more about that. "Well, I was supposed to make an hour calls and I didn't have enough time to do an hour so I just didn't do them". Well, what it would look like if you just took that 15mins that you have left and you made calls for 15 minutes, right? It's much better to make a little bit of progress than not at all, right?

Your business's check engine light is on ?? You ever taken your car into the shop because the check engine was on so you knew something was wrong? Well, if your car is fairly new, what do they do?
