Realtors Working Remotely: Staying Focused and Getting Things Done

When you work in a traditional real estate office, youre often trapped at a desk between four walls. Sure, thats how our parents did it, and their parents before thenbut studies increasingly suggest that being tethered to an office actually damages productivity.Contemporary business people working in team in the office

At Benchmark Realty, were firm believers that Realtors work best when theyre comfortable; thats why we encourage our agents to work remotely. Our Total Freedom concept helps ensure that our agents have the ability to work where they want, when they want. Sometimes, though, distractions prevent all of us from keeping focus on work. What can you do to increase your work output so you have more free time to enjoy with friends and family?

Figure Out When Youre Most Productive

Some of us are most productive between 8 a.m. and noon; others dont hit their stride until mid-afternoon. Youll have to experiment a little to determine when youre most productive, but once you find that sweet spot, run with it. Use your off-peak hours for tasks that dont require laser-sharp focus.

Dont Hide Your To-Do List

Keeping your calendar open (and in a place where you can see it) will help remind you that youre in work mode. Try to minimize other visual distractions before you dive in. If theres something that will nag you while youre working, handle it prior to getting started.

Allow Yourself the Luxury of Breaks

One of the biggest benefits of working remotely is that you can take a breather when you need to. Dont force yourself to work when you just cant make things click. Instead, step away from your work for a few minutes. Stretch, have a snack, open your favorite social media account and make a few posts; switching gears can help you re-focus and get more done.

Most people only dream of the freedom to work remotely, but you have it. Now make the most of it!
