You hired an assistant! Congratulations! Now what?? If you have been working your real estate business all by yourself for quite some time, handing off tasks is hard. Harder than you thought because your business is your baby, and nobody can do this JUST like you.
How many of you have gone through your real estate career having one time or another had to “chalked it up to experience”? As much as this may have stung, did you learn something from it?
Having been in the real estate business (residential and commercial) for over 20 years and recently property management, I gained a lot of knowledge and learned a lot of things. But at times, I just had to chalk things up to experience. And move on.
However, if you’re continually having to “Chalk things up to Experience”, it may be time to hire someone to help you.
Did you play a musical instrument in school? Did you have lessons? Did you take private lessons? How did that help you in your chair placement? Did your music teacher hold you accountable for practicing each day?
Did you have a tutor as you were going through school, especially for those hard classes like chem and physics? Did your grades improve? Did your tutor hold you accountable to studying that subject each day?
How about your real estate business? Of course, you’re taking the required real estate continuing ed classes as well as a webinar here and there, but are those really helping your business? They have great ideas to implement into your business, but are you using them after you added them to your notes?
Perhaps it is time to hire a real estate coach.
