Work Wise: Finding Work Life Balance as a Top California Realtor

Real estate is a challenging industry. Some might say it isn’t for the faint of heart. But it’s a wonderful field and one that will allow you to really take your professional career to new heights. Experience, education and attitude are important parts of success as a top California real estate agent. But this isn’t all.

To be successful as a top performing real estate professional in California, you have to make sure you’re working with the right people. One way to experience success is by joining up with a 100% commission real estate brokerage that is committed to staying on top.

Another way to be successful is to keep looking for opportunities to learn. As a leading flat fee broker in California, we strive to provide our agents with helpful tools that will increase real estate success. Consider Big Block Realty if you would like to begin an exciting career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

One of the hardest parts of being a real estate agent is trying to keep a healthy balance between work and family life. It seems that as real estate professionals, we’re often at the beck and call of clients, buyers, and sellers. We show listings at all hours to make the sale and it seems we could stay on our phones day and night.

As busy real estate professionals, we have to make time for our families. We have to think outside the box sometimes to make things happen in our work life, so why shouldn’t we be able to do the same with our families? There are a few simple things we can do every day to make sure we’re not losing touch with the ones we love.

The Phone- Make sure your family knows they can call you at any time. Your team should know they are to always put them straight through to you no matter what. If you’re with a client, politely excuse yourself and take the call. Most people will understand. At home, turn it off when dinner starts and don’t take business calls during a meal or important conversation with your loved ones. Whatever the situation, it can wait.

Dinner- Having dinner as a family is getting harder and harder these days. The kids have friends, sports, and school work. But just because it’s harder, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Try to schedule at least one dinner together as a family per week. Use that time to catch up with one another and address challenges as a family. Think of it as a council meeting.

One On One Time- You have to make time for one on one interaction with your family. Maybe take your spouse or teenager to see that movie they’ve been talking about, or just take a walk together or go out for an ice cream. Maintain those relationships by focusing on them individually on a regular basis. This includes taking time for yourself. You might feel pulled in all directions, but it’s important for you to recharge and rejuvenate yourself so you can be your best self for your clients.

These are just a few ways you can maintain the balance between your work and home life. What else can you come up with to help keep family time a priority?

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business begins with how you manage your client relationships as well as your marketing efforts. Dedicate the time and resources needed for build the business you’ve always dreamed about.

As a leading flat fee broker in California, we strive to provide our agents with helpful tools that will increase their success. Consider Big Block Realty if you would like to begin an exciting career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Career Success Tips: Managing Your Time

You’ve probably heard it said that time is your most valuable commodity.

When you can manage your time well, lots of other things fall into place.

The people who can’t seem to master time management end up feeling frazzled all the time, never really getting anything accomplished and always running behind.

As a real estate professional, time management is key to success.

Here are a few tips for managing your time that we hope will inspire you, whether you are struggling or knocking things out of the park. Either way, time management can always be improved upon!

1. Make a Plan 

If you have a plan, you will feel more in control of everything that is going on. Even if you have to deviate from it occasionally, it’s still there to give you that outline of what to expect.

2. Create a List 

You might think this is the same thing as a plan, but a daily to-do list is more specific.

Write down things that need to be done and rank them in order of what is most important.

Don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked by things that aren’t relevant.

3. Set the Pace 

When you pursue a career like real estate, you are essentially your own boss.

This means you have to set your own pace and stick to it. Don’t try to follow someone else’s lead.

However, there are successful people out there you can stand to learn something from.

For example, take a look at our interview with Josh Altman of Bravo TV’s million dollar listing.

4. Keep Focused

Don’t let yourself get distracted by things that may come up along the way.

Stick to the path you are on and keep your eye on the prize.

By setting realistic goals and rewarding yourself when you obtain them, you’ll have more success and manage your time better.

5. Learn to Say No 

You can’t help everybody at the same time and you can’t be everything to everybody.

There’s always going to be someone who wants what you have and wants it for free.

Know that your services offer value and don’t get taken in by people who just want to take advantage of you.

Build the right relationships with clients so that you can ensure long-term success.

One day you will look back at your life and think about how you spent your time.

You won’t want to have wasted it so spend it wisely now! You’ll thank yourself later.

Let us know if you have any questions, we are always here to help.
