How Realtors Can Stay Motivated and Avoid Burn Out

Realtors Can Stay Motivated In any job, the feeling of “burnout” hits from time to time.  Even those over zealous Realtors, Lenders, and Title Company professionals who rave how much they “love their craft” have hit the wall.  That feeling where fatigue hits and we need that extra motivation to keep going at a high level.  I have been in the Title Industry since 2005 and there have been several times where I needed to step back and take a deep breath, or find an outside positive influence that was rejuvenating.  What do you do when the wall hits and the feeling of burnout surrounds? There are many ways Realtors can seek motivation during these frustrating times, or when they are looking for positive solutions, not only their business, but in life. Here is how Realtors can stay motivated and avoid burn out!

YouTube Playlists -Real Estate Agent’s Biggest Video Alley

YouTube PlaylistsYouTube is a very powerful tool for anyone who takes advantage and uses it.  I can personally say that the decision I made to shoot videos for my business was a “game changer.” It got eyes to me, my value proposition and it allowed prospects to “meet me” before I ever met them. Very helpful for when that face to face meeting does take place. One of the best features of using this video platform are the YouTube Playlists that can be created for your videos.  Think of YouTube Playlists like “video categories” for your content. They allows someone who lands on your channel to sort through your videos for specific content they wish to watch.  It’s like putting a music CD in your car and allowing you to listen to just certain songs. I HIGHLY recommend that Realtors and Lenders add every video they shoot into YouTube Playlists.  Here are the top reason’s why…

What a Title Insurance Sales Rep Should Mean to a Realtor

 

Title Insurance Sales Rep on a computerI was meeting with someone last week and he said: “If Title Companies stopped bringing bagels and donuts to Realtor offices, bakeries would go out of business!” We had a chuckle but the more I thought about it, I agreed with him. In many markets around the country, the Title Insurance Sales Rep behaves and is seen as just that…the “order taker/bagel pusher.”  It is time to change the mindset of the real estate agent and start adding real value.  I can’t tell you how many times I offered a marketing solution, taught an agent a valuable lesson in real estate technology, or helped them in their business and they said–“Wow, I didn’t realize Title Company people offered this help for agents.”  Ever have this happen to you…or never happen to you?  So how should the Realtor view their Title Insurance Sales rep?  As an order taker/bagel pusher or more? Much…much more.
