5 Tips to Help Busy Real Estate Agents Stay Accountable

5 Tips to Help Busy Real Estate Agents Stay Accountable

How many times can you remember setting a goal, hustling for a few weeks to achieve it, then totally stopping it two months later? Whether your goal is to get to the gym regularly or to start reading more books, it can be all too easy to abandon these habits as everyday life unfolds around us.

But with some accountability, all of this changes.

Accountability ensures that you do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it. It’s the force that holds your feet to the fire, pushing you to swap your couch for the treadmill or to choose that new novel instead of Netflix.

Without that constant push toward achievement, our goals can fall to the wayside. And let’s be honest — in a business like real estate, where isolation is common, it can be hard to hold ourselves accountable, even though it’s that much more necessary. That’s why we’re sharing these five tips to keep the busy real estate agent accountable and on track!

1. Get a Coach

This is one of the most important things you can do for your business. A real estate coach is your ultimate accountability partner. They help you make a plan for your business, guiding you through the ups and downs while making sure you stay on top of lead generation and skill building. It is a sure-fire way to get built-in accountability to achieve at higher levels any time of the year.

2. Attend Real Estate Events

By attending a real estate event, you have something to work toward in your business. You know that in a couple of months, you’re going to get the opportunity to synergize and learn from thousands of like-minded agents on how to keep improving your business. Let this hold you accountable to keep up with your own lead generation, so that by the time the event rolls around, you feel empowered, successful and ready to absorb even more tips and tricks.

3. Take a Real Estate Training

A training program for real estate agents specifically holds you accountable when it comes to skill building. As busy agents, we know we should be constantly sharpening our skills, but rarely do we make the time to do so. When you sign yourself up for a real estate training program, or opt to take one in your brokerage, you are giving yourself some accountability to practice the essential skills of real estate and ultimately make more money.

4. Track Your Business Efforts

With great tracking comes great accountability. When you use a real estate CRM to record your lead generation activities, you provide yourself with a record of how you are performing that week or month. When you are constantly hitting all your numbers of calls, notes and pop-bys, you may be energized to keep the momentum going. If your numbers aren’t as great as you thought, they serve as the accountability you need to improve your hustle and generate a few more leads each week.

5. Consume Motivational Content

For best results, stay motivated! The best motivational podcasts and books contain content that inspires you to want to stay accountable and achieve your goals. The bottom line is if you personally aren’t invested in your goal, there’s no way you’re going to achieve it. Devour media that inspires you toward achievement so that you are motivated and ready to stay accountable on your journey.

Buffini & Company offers many products and services to help you find more accountability in your day-to-day life. Whether you hop into our real estate training program, The Pathway to Mastery®—Essentials, or our One2One Coaching™ program, you’re bound to find the tools and resources you need to stay accountable and achieve all your personal and professional goals.
