How to Make the Best of Your Time When You are a Site Agent

With builders back in the market, they are calling upon agents to sit at model homes waiting to tour prospective buyers. This article isn’t going to tout the benefits or the cautions about making this commitment (as I certainly do not recommend this for everyone), but instead I am addressing how to make the best […]

Priorities

Real estate is a business of managing priorities. I bet if you took a minute and wrote down every possible item that you think you have to do for your business, you would probably have dozens and dozens of “to dos”. Everything from entering last month’s expenses and this year’s taxes to a CMA for […]

Ask Denise: Buyers Need A Break?

Q:  Denise, I have two buyers who think they want to wait until the spring to resume looking for a new home. They are tired, have been heartbroken a number of times, and are just done.

A real estate agent that I coach recently presented me with a beautiful weekly calendar with lead generation, client follow-up, and potential client follow-up neatly organized according to time blocks and color-coded.

Every year in mid-November I hear the same comment from agents: “Denise, the market is slowing down. I think I’ll just wind things down, assume nothing else is going to happen, and then wind up next year.” Think again! If you aren’t ready to close your books on your business for the year, it is […]

Q:  Denise, I want to have quality of life. I want to spend more time with my kids, but every time we have a “date” to do something, I get a call with a client emergency. How do I stop this cycle which is leaving me wiped out and my kids constantly disappointed? A:  By […]

Ask Denise: My Project “To Do” List

Denise Lones

Q:  I have SO MUCH on my project “to do” list. I feel completely overwhelmed and every time I sit down to work on my list I feel so scattered and unfocused that I don’t even want to start ANYTHING… let alone create a plan for finishing! My current clients take all of my time, […]
