5 Things Real Estate Agents Do Every Day


There are a few things you should know before becoming a real estate agent. In hindsight, there are so many things I wish I had known before starting my career.

Investopedia recently published a story about the day in the life of a Realtor. Let me walk you through what a Realtor does during the work day.

We tend to administrative tasks. This ranges from answering e-mails to coordinating appointments to developing marketing plans for listings.

We lead generate. Finding clients is crucial to our business. Often, we focus on a sphere of influence strategy to target new leads from people we already know, such as family, friends, and neighbors.

We work with clients directly. We spend some time with them every day, whether it’s staging a home, e-mailing listings to potential buyers, or accompanying clients to inspections.

We hold meetings and tours. We offer consultations in our office. We meet with clients and everyone involved with the process of buying a home.

We learn new things all the time. We read books and check the news. We continue our education to pursue degrees and certifications. We study marketing and the industry as a whole. We constantly learn ways to improve our skill sets and strategies.

Agents need to find a professional balance between administrative tasks and income-producing activities. Sometimes, this means long days in the office or in the field, meeting with or recruiting clients.

That’s why there actually isn’t a typical day as a Realtor after all! We do so many things that it’s likely every work day is different.
