Frame work begins with objectives established by the business plan.

The plan creates the checklist accounting for the tasks.

Each morning I look at the check list and from it create my '"To Don't" list.

Then life happens.

Hi Jesse how are you today? 

Great question for time management. As far as my experience goes, I like planning out my week ahead of time. This depends on what kinds of commitments I have for that week. I try to arrange my work by area, and since there is heavy traffic on weekdays between the hours of 3-7 (SF BAY AREA) I like to divide my day into two parts if possible, atteding to the morning appointments from  8-12 and then the afternoon 1-6.  It also depends on the activity I am doing for that day. Showing appointments can run over the time allocated for them. Signing appointments are usually more timely.  No shows happen sometimes, or delays in traffic.................Likewise appraisals or inspections are time specific. In this business  one must be flexible................go with the flow since other factors can cause delays......................traffic being the biggest offende rthis is true

especially  in the areas I operate.How do you go about it?

Other than firm appointments for showings, signings, calls or meetings I have found a strict schedule doesn't work for me. I have my Must Do list and get that done first thing except when interruptions delay it. I finish my Must Do's and if there is time move on to my regular To Do list.

I learned a long time ago to make my list of what I have to get accomplished and do it first. The next group of activites are things I want to do and the last are things that I will do when I have time. I plan lots of flex time in my day and use every bit of it. I want to be able to handle a last minute client that calls and needs my services.

Time management is critical in the real estate business.  You should have you day broken down in 30 minute time sections.  Your prospecting activities should be during the first 4 hours of your day.

Thanks for asking this. I am subscribing to the answers. I personally always have a schedule that allows for wiggle room. Other agents I work with vary, so time management is always a good topic to have with them.

Have a great week!

I work from a list of daily goals. Sometimes I have to move things around time wise so I can not commit to a specific schedule. As long as my daily goals get accomplished I am happy.
