Staying organized is the best way to be more efficient in any profession. If you are a realtor, you can save a lot of your time and effort by staying organized, while also creating a great impression to your clients. You exude confidence and inspire your clients and others in your network when they find you cool and organized all the time. Here are some simple and easy ways to get organized and be more productive.
Get rid all the clutter
As a realtor, you must manage lots of documents and retrieve the right ones whenever you need them. You can easily find yourself lost in a sea of papers and files if you do not keep them organized. The easiest way to keep the clutter under control, keep all documents in files and folders and give them descriptive titles so that you know where to find what you’re looking for. If you have everything organized in your office, you will not fumble looking for documents in front of your clients.
Make a habit of documenting everything
It can be difficult to remember all your activities in a day as a realtor, since you spend so much time rushing from one place, and one appointment, to another. You can make it easy on yourself by writing everything you do in a notebook, or using an app to keep track of all your activities. That way, you can go back and refer to it if you need to. Try the app Evernote on your smart phone or tablet to make it easy to track your movements on the go.
Never forget to make a paper copy and a digital copy
It is possible to lose track of an important document even if you are highly organized. Therefore, you should develop the habit of copying all documents that come your way. Make both a paper copy and a digital copy so that you are able to retrieve it from the cloud whenever you need the document easily. There are countless scanner apps available so that you can use your smart phone to scan a copy and upload it to your preferred cloud storage format.
Use a good quality CRM
CRM is an essential tool for managing all your tasks and customers as a realtor. You can manage and organize all your listings as well as all the clients you are currently working with. A CRM gives you the ability to have all important details about a property on your fingertips all the time. It also allows you to be in better control by knowing the requirements of different clients. A good quality CRM makes sure you don’t have to rely upon your memory.
