10 New Year’s Resolutions for Real Estate Agents in 2019

Not sure what you should be including in your New Year’s resolutions this year? Don’t sweat – we’ve got you.

From setting a great work-life balance to scratching up on your marketing skills, there are heaps of things you can improve on to give your professional and personal lives that welcome boost. Read on to find out more.

1) Don’t Work Harder – Work Smarter 

It’s a topic that’s been hotly discussed in psychology circles, and for good reason. By working smarter, not harder, you’ll get more done. Try and prioritise impact over urgency. Build out your working week around your biggest priorities and fill your spare time with less urgent tasks.

2) Set up a Consistent Social Media Schedule

Social media can be a real estate agent’s greatest friend, but only if you use it well. How can you do that? By making sure you post regularly. Not all of us have the time to login during the working day, so if you find yourself struggling, consider checking out a social scheduling app like Buffer.

3) Create More Video Content

Video content is the future of the online marketing game, but right now, it’s still a great way of standing out from your competition. Fortunately, with the evolution of technology, you don’t need to rely on expensive videography equipment or costly agencies. In fact, most real estate agents are able to shoot high-quality videos using simple-to-use apps.

4) Get in Touch with Local Businesses

By doing this, you’ll be able to form partnerships that could well work in your favour. As an example, you could host your company events at a well-known local café, and they could give you a discount or help to promote future events.

5) Stop Worrying About the Future of Real Estate

Sure – robots might take over all of our jobs at some point, but that time isn’t anywhere soon. Focus your efforts on upskilling and providing more value to your clients. The less predictable and repetitive your role is, the harder it will be to automate.

6) Take Time for Yourself

Remember – you’re only human. If you’ve found yourself swamped with work this year, remember to take time out to do the things you love in 2019.

7) Broaden Your Tech Horizons

Every day, there’s new tech hitting the market that could make your job easier. By taking the time to research apps, plugins and software related to your day-to-day, you could create more time for business development or other areas you need to focus on.

8) Take a New Headshot

People change. Whether it’s a new haircut or something else, you probably look a little different than you did last year. It’s important to give your clients an accurate representation of who you are, so if your headshot is outdated, find the time to take a new one.
