I work quite a bit and that includes weekends, nights and work days.
Yes! I did that for a week and wrote 14 offers on 14 different homes. At the end of it all I was tired but felt good I worked that hard.
I work whatever it takes to help my clients.
Yes. Yes. Yes. I am a full time Realtor, and as such make myself available for the clients I represent. That being said, I am still learning lessons about boundaries and etc. I hear stories from clients with past agents that couldnt meet them to sign paperwork, until they got off from their other job. Not sure how that serves the clients best interest(S).
Sure, I'm willing . . . when my clients would benefit. I work weekends all the time since many of my clients have the weekends off and that's a great time to house search. I cut off the Internet at 6:00 PM daily if there's nothing pressing.
Yes, just not all of them.
Of course! Sometimes nights and weekends are the only times clients are available due to their work schedules.
William, as situations or the right client require it, yes. I also take mid-week days to run errands, go to Costco, and enjoy other activity.
No, I'm not. That's why I specialize in 55+ communities - retired people are available all day, everyday.
Yes I am!
William, that sounds like the routine hours of a real estate agent!
We already do. Sleep? HELL no!
We work 7 days a week, long days and nights. Bring it on!
I lready do, 7 days, every weekend and usually at least 5 nights a week.
I work on weekends except when I have family and friends visiting and holidays and special occasions.
I do not work 24/7.... no need to. I put in a lot of hours each week to serve my clients, but there are limits.
Some, not all.
7am-3pm Monday through Friday
Ive been in the bsns over 3 decades. Im willing to accomodate my clients schedules, which can mean "their after work" hours, evenings and weekends, or the 2 days they're in town from 3000 miles away.
HOWEVER, I do NOT work 24/7, and know we MUST take time for ourselves
or 1) burn out will ensue,
2) your clients will surely take advantage of being able to reach you at all hours.
3) we are Professionals, the more we set our business boundaries, the better for everyone. Im not shy about saying "if it can wait until business hours the next weekday, it should do that".
4) there can be exceptions to the rule in an emergency: If an important escrow account is suddenly requiring paperwork being prepared and submitted on a Sunday evening, thats when above all my boundaries: the Client comes first.
