As a general rule, the most successful agents are the ones who spend the least time in the office. Oh, they hold up their end with floor time, sales meetings, and listing tours – and they know how to make the most of each. But the rest of their time is spent in the field.
The problem with the officeYour office may be a comfortable place, but if you’re not actually doing the work of a real estate agent while you’re there, it’s a total distraction from your job. Here are the traps you’re likely to fall into when you’re spending too much time in the office:
- Gossip – gossip while fun rarely does anything good.
- Fiddling – rearranging files, updating who knows what, busy work.
- Distractions from the work you’re trying to get done. Even when you want to get legitimate work done, you’re likely to be interrupted by your co-workers.
