Remember that this is a fluid process. What works one week will need to be reviewed and restructured to shift priorities when needed. The best way to start is to determine what’s the highest priority. I utilize the Eisenhower’s Matrix which is a productivity, prioritization, and time-management system designed to help you prioritize a list of tasks or agenda items by first categorizing those items according to their urgency and importance. Basically, if something is deemed to be important and urgent, do it now. If it is important, but not urgent, it can be scheduled for later. If it is not important nor urgent, remove it from the list all together.
I enlist this same time-management system with my team members. My team member and I determine what the priorities are and work together to get things done so that we’re maximizing both of our potential. A great simple tool to help with this prioritizing is to determine one colour post-it note or pen colour in your digital notes for do now, do in a week, and do in 30 days. I can take a quick look at any moment and move on to the next task. You will find this works perfectly for your home life too.
Next is a review of the mobile apps that I highly recommend. They allow for greater efficiency and productivity. Obviously, if you’re part of a Real Estate Board, you know, an MLS or license, you probably want to have all of that in your phone. You’ll also want to have access to either Google Drive or Dropbox. Great for having access on the go. In the real estate business, having quick access to insurance or warranty information is critical.
I am a big fan of Google Keep for note-taking in my phone as well as for journaling. Great for keeping track of all your brilliant ideas!
A must-have is kvCORE, the number one rated real estate platform, it is built to power your entire brokerage with next generation technology. It is the backbone of my real estate business. I have automated so many processes through kvCORE.
I use Zapier, an automation platform that connects your work apps and does repetitive tasks for you. Zapier automates your work by connecting your apps and then moving information between them based on rules you set.
Additionally, I use Receipt Bank (Now DEXT) it’s a software application that allows you to electronically capture and store your receipts. Supporting documentation is securely stored electronically, so it’s available on any computer or connected device. This helps with pesky receipts, logging mileage, taxes and dealing with bookkeeping.
For project management, I use Asana. Asana is a web and mobile work management platform designed to help organize teams, track, and manage their work. Others like it are Monday & Trello.
My husband and I have everything in Asana, and it’s a project management tool, all our new ideas, current ideas, all the tasks that need to be done either personal or professional, everything’s in there.
