Paul - I work whenever the work is there, Monday through Sunday. If I do not have clients, I will work on my marketing, website, prospecting, etc. There is always something to do. I will take time off to do family things, whether it is on the weekend, or during the week.

Paul S. Henderson, Realtor, Tacoma Washington Good Question!  My published office hours are 7am to 3pm Monday through Friday, no weekends or holidays.  However - exceptions can be made by appointment.  Works well - no squawks from clients or other agents.

The Agent you choose REALLY does make a difference

Weekends are busy - but when they are not and I have held them in reserve or faced cancellations it is disappointing because those are the times family time is often sacrificed.  

Our business has its own rhythm --- I have learned that to achieve my goals I have to rock to its beat. When it heats up, I'm on call and ready.

When presented with this question, I verify what day of the week it is, today is Thursday, and respond.

"I work weekends but take Wednesday and Thursday off." If they do not notice, you can be assured your days off do not matter.

Sundays: I've been closed on Sundays for 10 years. I occasionally take a weekday off in addition, not instead, to mirror my bride's floating days off. I value my health, family, hobbies and my clients experience with me too much to not take a recharge day. 

Would you book eye surgery or brain surgery with a surgeon that is 24/7 like most Realtors claim to be? 

To each there own, but in my opinion working 7 days a week means you cheat your clients out of the recharged you. They get what's left of you (eventually) not the best of you. I can go hard 6 days a week happily, because I have Sundays to look forward to. Plus, the recharged me will out perform the 7th day you every time

Every once in a while, I take off time during the week to be with my family. This Friday, for instance, a new exhibit will open at our Museum of LIfe and Science with a Member's Only tour, and I am only working a half-day so that I can go there with my wife, son, and daughter. We have been awaiting this opening for over a year!
