Don't just dream about a successful real estate business! Discover strategies, action plans and the how-to of getting from where you are now to where you want your business to be.
Goals give us something to reach for and give us direction. Follow along with Denise Lones as she covers the importance of setting goals and how to achieve them.
No matter how hard you try to avoid it, it's impossible. Inevitably, you wake up one day and you're out of business. Nothing in your pipeline. No income. No hope. Why? How did this happen? What did you do wrong? I know it’s a scary thought, but many agents wake up to this realization one morning and begin to panic.
If you're like most real estate agents, then you find it difficult to track the finite details of your business - your money, the results of your advertising, client retention, days on market numbers, list-to-sale price ratios. The list is truly endless. But, just like filing your income taxes, tracking is an essential task. Have you learned your lesson from last tax season?
One of my colleagues has been raving about a local business. She keeps telling me, "Denise, you just HAVE to visit this place! It's a local farm that grows apples but it's just amazing on so many levels."
Quality of life, lead generation, income tracking and follow-up are keystones to your success in the real estate business. These hold up your business goals, whether that be a commission goal, goal to contribute a portion of your earnings to charity, or sell a certain number of homes per year. The first step to achieving these goals is to define them. This in-depth workbook is designed to help you define your goals and then create a plan of steps for achieving them.
Join Denise Lones for a discussion about the numbers that define your business health. What do your numbers say about your business? Do you like working with more buyers than sellers or 'ice 'ersa? Do you ha'e regular consistent business or do your numbers show you how sporadic your acti'ities are? If you don't ha'e a fool proof plan that ensures a smooth growing business, maybe the numbers can help you create the business you want.
In this pep talk, Denise asks you to identify the things that are wasting your time and not making you money.

Denise recommends each agent have rules in their business - rules for time off, rules for pricing, commission, the types of properties you won't sell, and your geographical boundaries. Rules will provide you with freedom to say no!
Many agents take a little time each year to think about their goals. They may look at their business, make a goal to earn a little more, and leave it at that. However, to make a goal achievable, it takes more than just putting a number on a sheet of paper, it must also be actionable. Different people approach goes from different directions based on their response to challenge. Learn within how to identify your challenge-response habit, how that impacts your goals, and how to develop an action plan that can lead you to success.
In my business, I talk to a lot of agents. I talk to agents about their successes. I talk to agents about their challenges. I talk to agents who love what they do; I talk to agents who are struggling to stay afloat in this economy. No two conversations are alike, because no two agents are alike.
Denise speaks on the importance of four areas of accountability. Who are you accountable to? What things should you be accountable to? Watch this short presentation to find out more.
As a small business owner, you are the boss. You run the show. You're in charge of marketing, promotion, operations, and service. Perhaps you’re a master of all of these. Yet, one of the biggest mistakes I see in small business owners - and, yes, that includes you as a real estate agent - is something very basic, and deadly to your business.
