Your business is booming. You have become the MOST wanted real estate agent on the block. You are on cloud nine.
But, something is not right.
You sometimes confuse schedules, mess up documents and are just not able to scale up.
Can’t wait to figure out what the solution is? Well, let’s jump in.
As you grow with your business, the amount of real estate transactions as well as revenue grows with you. It may soon come tumbling down like a game of Jenga if you do not invest in a great administrative team. A team that cheers you on, motivates you and empowers you to keep building your real estate empire one step at a time.
Not only do you get a great team to bank upon, you also get your systems as well as processes in place and can be rest assured that you never misplace information. You will be accountable for every yearly, monthly, weekly and even daily goals.
This sounds great. When should you sign up?
Well, there is a right time for everything. A great rule of thumb is you get yourself an administrative team when you want to scale up or feel overwhelmed. When you do hire your own team, ensure that your “vibe” matches with theirs as you have to work long hours together and you might as well have an interesting bunch.
A great way to judge if you need a real estate administrative team is by answering the following questions:
- Are there pending tasks since weeks?.
- Could these tasks be completed by a great team and lead to more productivity?
- Do you see yourself grow from 5 client showings a week to 20?
Well, if your answer to all these questions was a huge YES, then you need to get yourself an admin team.
Now, let’s take a look at what are the qualities that you should ensure your team has:
1. Personality, Personality, PERSONALITY!
More than the resume or the skills, it is vital that your team has the right personality. This team will be there with you through the good and the bad, so you need to ensure that it’s a team that you like to work with, one that will keep you on track.
Self-management skills are the most important since your admin team will be managing your leads, transactions, agents, and other client-facing work. You need to be able to trust them to get the job done while you handle other responsibilities, and focus on scaling.
3. Shared Interest
It is not absolutely necessary that your entire admin team has to be a real estate expert, but they should be willing to learn and grow your brokerage. This is possible when you as the leader are able to give the right incentives and encourage them to be successful. Growing your business is amazing, but ensure that your quality is always consistent.
4. Willing to learn
It goes without saying but a great team is one which is always willing to learn from their own mistakes. And one that is always honest. So, hire a team that resonate those values time and again.
Be rest assured that when you hire a great administrative team at the right time for all the right reasons, your business will be growing at an exponential rate. And this time, you will have a team that will celebrate it louder than you.
