What is productivity? Some think that the concept of productivity relates to the ability of getting more things done within the same period of time; I will slightly disagree and offer another way of thinking about it – Productivity is the reduction and streamlining of input to generate the highest output possible.

Are you processing your To-Do List through the prism of your Emotions?

Posted by Key Yessaad on January 23, 2013 at 7:20 AM Comments comments (0)

One of the hurdles some Real Estate Agents must overcome is not the ‘Not Knowing’ of what to do, lots of good Real Estate Trainings are available out there – it is The Not Liking of Doing what they know they ought to be doing. They learn for example that Prospecting is a MUST to grow their business; they even learn the scripts of what to say and how to say it; yet some linger in the office trying to find busy work rather then confronting the beast of Pr...

What is Not Done can consume more business energy than the doing of it

Posted by Key Yessaad on January 22, 2013 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Going about your daily business and getting things done is in essence an investment of your time and energy, and as an entrepreneur you do not get paid for that; all of the calls you make; all the emails you send; all the travels you undertake are not rewarded by a payment, but they should get you closer towards your Real Estate deals closing. Some of the tasks are not fun and some can be enjoyable, but what saps your energy and efficiency are your loose ends, act...

Planning your Business Week is about taking Responsibility for your Activities, and inviting Opportunity

Posted by Key Yessaad on January 20, 2013 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The Business and Work of an Entrepreneur must be structured and framed properly; either by the entrepreneur herself, partners to the venture, or the desire for entrepreneurship was flawed to begin with. The Real Estate Business lives in the realm of Entrepreneurial Endeavors, but sadly for many the ‘Work’ is not structured, methodical, implementable, and repeatable – in fact for many it is emotional and driven by the feeling of the day. Here is an examp...

The benefits of being early to appointments, especially Real Estate Listing Presentations are not limited to just looking good and reflecting your true professionalism; they give you the ‘breather time’ to center yourself, collect your thoughts, get a good feel for the neighborhood, and develop sales strategies for the location. In fact I will go even further and say arrive earlier so you can drive around the neighborhood; this will allow you see the Real Est...

The Goals of being a Successful Entrepreneur need to resonate with your values, and stretch you beyond what you are capable of. If you are able to run the same routine, day in and day out, and make the income you want – You Do Not Need Goals. In fact not everyone should be striving to go to the moon and it is absolutely fine; but if you have the aspiration of becoming Successful in Real Estate you better know your objectives.

The Appointment in Real Estate is the most important customer interaction you will have whether working with Buyers or Sellers; and many Real Estate Agents do a great job managing this process – Yet some keep committing a major sin; ‘Talking to the person who desires the appointment and is talkative; and not being aware if all the decision makers are attending and participating.’ Unless there is a compelling reason for not having all decision makers phy...

Structures that work for the long term have constrains and parameters; Cars will be useless without Roads; Trains a heap of metal without Rails; Planes wandering metal birds without Airports; Yes Structure creates reliability, predictability, and opportunity. There are many entrepreneurs who think that building a business structure will stifle creativity; and yes some overdo the rigidity of their work habits; but if you look at Google, SAS, and Facebook and think that be...

Every job, every project, every endeavor is made up of Big Ideas with overarching Vision; but it is only when you break them down into their do-able activities that you will be able to fulfill your vision and get the job done. Writer and Futurist Alvin Toffler shared: ‘You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.’ Many stop at the water’s edge; they take their b...

Your Customers' Needs and Motivation will dictate your Success in Real Estate

Without a clear understanding of ‘Why’ a Property Owner is selling their home your Marketing will fail. Experienced Agents will tell you that the ‘reason for selling’ will reveal not only the motivation of the Property Owner, but also the time you have to do your job. The National Median Days on Market is between 70 and 100 Days and since 95% of all properties go through at least one price reduction, it means that you have 3 months t...
