A real estate professional’s job is not like other 9 to 5 job. H/she has to work literally round the clock so as to finalise as many deals as possible within the given time. One has to sacrifice his personal time and relationship. Though there is no hard and fast model to manage time but some of the tips to manage time are suggested below:
Putting things in order
He must arrange the work to be done in the order of importance. Here a distinction must be made between what is immediate and what is urgent. Immediate work takes precedence over urgent work.

Planning to execute so many things in a single day will result in unbearable stress and interfere with your own family time.
Practising Time Management
One must plan his work strategy, for example, time should be allotted for showcasing property/ presentation when organising meetings with the clients. Also, it must include consultation with the buyers, planning field visits etc. The client should also be politely informed that major deviation in the schedule may not be accommodated, this will enable the realtors to organise his day better and also presenting a very professional image to the customers.
Provision for Family time
Your own time to attend to your own/family needs should be indicated in the day planner. This should be considered at par with other important activity. Office responsibilities should not be allowed to encroach on the family time.
A realtor, much though he may intend will not be able to attend all the task by himself. So it would be useful if the realtors consider seeking assistance and delegate not so important work to an external agency so that he can attend to more important things in a faster way. This will also help him to strike a balance between home and office.
A real estate professional should be well informed about the various applications available in the market to help real estate agents such as IRX. Usage of such tools will enable him to manage his time in a better way and at the same time increase productivity.
Assessment of progress
With the help of experience, a professional will come to analyse what produces a good result and what hinders in his business. H/she can strengthen the good points and take remedial measures for not so good points.
Management of time is a very important segment in everyday life particularly in real estate business where definite time frame has to be adhered to. If the planning and goals are clear without much room for the confusion it is expected that the tips mentioned above can help a real estate professional to manage responsibilities at workplace and also at home with a measure of success.
