Unfortunately, most business planning systems just ask you to fill in some forms. Boy, that’s really inspiring….not!

So, how do you inspire yourself (and your team) to create and use your plan?

Create your mission.

What is it? 

A statement that defines your real estate career in these areas:

  • What you do
  • What you specialize in
    What you are selling in real estate
    What areas/target markets you specialize in
    What kind of services you provide  

As important as your mission is in defining what you will do, it also is restrictive, because it guides you in deciding what you won’t do.

Mission statements are:

  •  Not lightly changed
  • Written in the present tense
  • Not objectives
  • Not tied to time 

Some examples:

To take my clients step by step through the home buying, selling, or building process as a consultant who approaches each transaction with empathy, integrity, and professionalism, resulting in a nearly 100% referral real estate practice.

We provide superior service to each individual represented by The Farnsworth Team.  Our goal is to ensure that our customers and clients have every advantage as we begin, process, and conclude our real estate transaction.

I am a real estate professional.
I specialize in residential properties.
My clients and customers are upwardly mobile and established professionals.
My premise of service is to find out what people want and help them get it.
I proceed with honest, intelligent effort.
I bring to my clients a sincere concern for their welfare.
