Another great episode about finding the right talent to help you reach the next level in your business! As a current administrator in the real estate industry, Margaret Smith has the best insight into what kind of direction a fantastic admin needs in order to help your business excel. She also shares some great tips on how to make that agent/admin relationship blossom as you navigate the tricky world of letting go of your everyday tasks and allowing someone else to take some of that unnecessary weight off your shoulders.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me, and most of the agents I know, letting go is a pretty tough concept. We tend to be control freaks and it’s difficult for us to hand over our responsibilities to someone else, especially in a business that we built ourselves and is so personal. However, it’s SO vital to our success! In order for any business to be successful, communication needs to be at the top of your priority list with everyone on your team whether they are sales people or administrative staff. It’s important to establish where your daily priorities lie and what goals you intend to accomplish that year.
I cannot say it enough, without that extra help you are only holding your business back from breaking through that ceiling giving you the leverage you need to make your growing success in real estate a reality. At the end of the day, you need to run your business like a business because one person cannot consistently or realistically keep up with the growing demands more clients entails without help. Take a listen to all Margaret has to offer. It’s always insightful to hear an insider’s perspective. I think we can all learn a lot about what our current admins may need from us to help them bring growth to our business and what some of us may need to be looking for in finding the right person to help us get there.
Here are some of the key takeaways from this episode.
