Some agents spend all their time dealing with emergencies, running on empty, trying to do everything at once
RISMEDIA, August 15 ? Everyone has the same 24 hours in every day. So why are some real estate agents more successful than others? The answer is simple: effective time management.
Some agents spend all their time dealing with emergencies, running on empty, trying to do everything at once. But as many successful agents know, the best use of an agent’s time is face-to-face with people who are ready to buy or sell their homes.

HouseValues provides many valuable ideas for increasing agents? efficiency, including:
* Prioritize: Agents should determine the tasks needed to accomplish each goal, then make a daily to-do list according to their importance.
* Focus: When working on a task, an agent should put all energy into it. This will help them finish the task more quickly so they can move on to the next one.
* Invest in new skills: By learning new methods and business techniques, agents can increase their efficiency and success.
* Use technology tools: Busy agents can use email and high-tech prospecting tools to save time so they can spend more time in the field with clients.
When setting a schedule, agents should keep in mind that time management is actually self-management. By making conscious decisions about their use of time, agents create opportunities to increase their effectiveness and income.
