What Is A Typical Day In Real Estate?
I absolutely love this question because it’s one I get asked a lot and the answer is there is no typical day in real estate. Being in this business requires ninja like flexibility. Sure, I have what I call my “ideal” days, don't we all? That said, typical and ideal are not the same.
If you like consistency and doing the same thing at the same time everyday real estate is not for you. If you’re like me and prefer no day to ever be the same real estate provides that. I’m up early to tackle my emails, blogs, and social media. It’s quiet first thing in the morning and I know I’ll be able to accomplish all of those tasks without getting sidetracked. On an ideal day that leaves the afternoon and evenings for appointments. Appointments could be with clients, meeting an appraiser, tradesmen, stager – you get the point.
Let’s be honest, not every day is an “ideal schedule” day. More often than not that’s the case. That’s where the ninja flexibility comes in. In real estate you have to be able to go with the flow. Last minute phone call that an appraiser needs to meet an hour early, a meeting pops up, an agent on my team needs help, or an unexpected call from a client. There are endless things that can come up in the day and it’s important to not only be flexible but, not let it fluster you. I absolutely love that my days in real estate vary and there isn’t anything typical about a day in the life of a Realtor®.
