Enough time has passed since I began my career in real estate that I can say I’m cruising along. My calendar has begun to fill up for the following week before I’m halfway there. It’s good to see the progress. Below is a basic example of a typical day. For those of you who are thinking of a career in real estate, you might find this information rather interesting.
6:00am At this point there is a definite routine emerging. Each day begins with a check of my emails. Next I am going over and planning my day. Many mornings I will spend this time writing a post for my blog as well.
7:30 am Drive the kids to school. Once back home, I have some breakfast, take a shower and pack a lunch.
8:30am Go to the office. Check email and voicemail.
9:00am Morning meeting. Meetings are a time to learn about several subjects. We have had meetings on how to make the most of your week, short-sales and how to fill out some of the more complicated paperwork.
10:30am Check email and voicemail. One on one meeting with my supervisor. We will go over what transpired during the previous week. This is my opportunity to ask questions and get guidance on how to handle particular situations.
11:30am Check email and voicemail. Printing any paperwork I need to gather for appointments or for passing out flyers for the day.
12:30pm Check email and voicemail. Appointments, passing out flyers, or prospecting by phone, email or in person.
3:00pm Pick up kids from school.
3:30pm Check email and voicemail.
4:00pm Make dinner.
5:00pm Have dinner with the family.
6:00pm Check email and voicemail. Appointments or prospecting by phone or email.
8:00pm Last check of email and voicemail. Schedule appointments for showings. Plan out next day.
I have to admit my day is possibly more extended because I work around the kids schedule. Each realtor will have a schedule fairly different from each other. That is probably the best part of being a realtor though.
