The year’s almost over, what’s changed in your business? If the answer is “nothing”, then it’s time to take a hard look at what you’re doing in real estate – and how you can do it better.

The end of the year is a perfect time to start planning for the spring selling season, and in fact your spring commissions are being made right now, so don’t miss today’s podcast where we drill down on the crucial questions you need to ask yourself (and honestly answer) about your real estate business.

  1. Where did your business come from this year? Go through every transaction and account for it’s source. Referrals? Past client repeat? Expireds? Open houses?

  8. What did you do really well this year?
  9. What didn’t you do well this year?
