The summer is a busy time in real estate, as buying hits a fever pitch in many areas around the country. It’s also a time when many busy real estate agents find it easy to lose sight of the goals they set at the beginning of the year. While some may have outright forgotten, others may feel so overwhelmed by their to-do lists they may not get around to doing their daily lead generating tasks, or even take a break. Although it’s busy now, it may slow down again in a few months. The leads you generate now will help carry you through the slower times of the year. Regardless of how busy you are, it’s important to stay on track if you want to achieve your goals. Luckily, Referral Maker® CRM makes it easy to stay on track. Here’s how: Continue reading

Are your fears keeping you from succeeding? For many of us, the fear of failure (or even success) prevents us from reaching our goals. We become too paralyzed to act when we encounter an obstacle along our paths. Negative thoughts take over our minds and we begin to believe the horrible things we tell ourselves. We start to think that our goals are impossible, that we’ll never succeed, that we’re destined to fail—and before long we give up. After all, if we can’t believe in ourselves, who will? But, it is possible to defeat these negative thoughts and face our fears head-on. Continue reading
Want a surefire way to stay on track to reach your goals? Track! Tracking has many benefits and may even help you to reach your goals. Here are some of the great benefits of tracking:
It makes you more accountable. Whether you’re tracking your daily lead generating activities or you’re tracking your runs each week, tracking holds your feet to the fire and keeps you accountable to your goals. Knowing that you have to document your activities makes you more likely to make them a habit, and less likely to forget to do them.
It helps you to grain perspective. When we’re trying to achieve our goals, it’s easy to lose perspective along the way. If you have a bad day or experience a setback, it can make you feel like a failure. However, when you track, you’re able to look back on your progress over time and see that a day that doesn’t go your way is a small hiccup in the grand scheme of things.
It’ll motivate you to reach your goals. Knowing that you have to account for your goal-oriented activities each day helps you to stay motivated on those days when you’re just not feeling it. Also looking back at the successful completion of milestones also provides motivation when you need it the most.
