As a real estate agent, you’re location independent. While you may have a desk in an office if you work with a larger real estate company, you often work from a variety of locations including your home and your car. But these aren’t the only places where you can get things done. In fact, by changing up your work environment, you may be able to think more creatively and get inspired. Here are a few places to try:
1. A diner. If you work better with the low hum of conversation around you, pack up your laptop and head to your local diner. Order a snack or two and some coffee so that you don’t wear out your welcome. Who knows—you may even add a few new clients to your database. Just be sure to add them to your Referral Maker™ real estate CRM database.
2. The library. If you’re mired by distractions, drive to your local library to hide out and get work done for a few hours. If you still feel distracted, check out the wide selection of business magazines and books to give you a dose of motivation when you need it. Just be sure to switch off your phone or you’ll get dirty looks from other patrons and a warning from the librarian.
3. A co-working space. Co-working spaces are ideal for people who work from home, but want to occasionally work in an office-type setting. It offers the buzz of working in an office as well as provides opportunities to meet and brainstorm with other remote workers. Even if you have a desk at a real estate office, you may be able to benefit from the change of office scenery. Although most co-working spaces charge a monthly or drop-in membership fee, many of them offer an open free day during the week.
