The quality of your communication with people is what makes you stand out

If there’s one thread that runs through most of today’s Juice Bar Q & A, it’s that clear communication is essential to your Real Estate business. Whether you are sending out postcards to your farm, e-mailing a newsletter to your clients, writing an offer, setting up a listing, or knocking on doors, communication is key! On this episode, I answer listener’s questions about Real Estate and share some of the ways that you can communicate effectively by e-mail, on the phone, and in person with all of the people you encounter in your business.

Efficient systems help your business run smoothly (and save you a lot of headaches)

Have you set up Real Estate systems to help your business run smoothly? By setting up systems you can handle things prior to when they happen and make it easy for your clients to have confidence in you. On this Q & A episode, I respond to a listener’s question about systems and explain how my own systems work at each step in the buying and selling process. Listen in to learn how systems can make your job a whole lot easier while making your clients happier.

Time blocking, setting boundaries, and making an appointment with yourself

As one of my listeners said, “Accomplishments require activity, but activity does not necessarily equal accomplishment.” Are you blocking your time in a way that allows you to accomplish your goals? On this episode, I’ll help you understand how to set boundaries around your time so that you are working for long-term gains and not just for the present moment. Listen in and then get out your calendar and book an appointment with yourself!

The number one thing you need for your Real Estate business: a clear plan

Do you want to stay consistent in your business? Do you want your Real Estate systems to flow smoothly, and have your activities lead to accomplishments? The first thing you need is a clear plan. On this episode, I answer listener’s questions on a wide variety of topics, and many of those answers hinge on having a clear plan. When your plan is in place, then it becomes easier to make decisions about the use of your time, communication, and activities like farming, open houses, or Facebook advertising.
