Learn the secrets to managing a thriving and happy team, so you can achieve more together.
Lead by example
As a leader, you are a trusted, influential, and indispensable part of your real estate team. Demonstrating your effective leadership skills starts with leading by example. It’s important to maintain a proactive, motivated, and organized approach to team management. Experience, clear communication, goal-setting, and mentoring are also standout qualities that agents look for in a team leader.
Get a jump on goal-setting
Whether you want to triple sales for the year or double leads for the quarter, establish your team goals early on. Communicating these benchmarks clearly so that every member knows your expectations and their roles in achieving them is also vital. Once goals are set, it’s also important to monitor individual progress to help the team stay on track.

Creating and maintaining structure within a team can also help agents stay focused and remove ambiguity regarding individual roles.
Make the most of meetings
At their best, meetings can be sources of great productivity. At their worst, they may be seen as an ineffective and unnecessary. To make sure your team is getting the most out of every meeting, schedule them only when they are essential and have a clearly defined purpose.
Be flexible and approachable
Agents and their sales tactics can differ greatly from office to office and even within the same team. While it’s essential to have cohesive goals within your group, it’s also important to recognize the individuality and diversity within your team. Maintaining a flexible approach to each agent’s working style can help maintain a motivating and successful team environment.
