The way that people work is changing. Going into the office is no longer the norm — the hybrid style is where it’s at, with employees working in the office a few days a week while spending the other days at home.
For offices full of real estate agents, this isn’t really anything new. Agents have always used their offices on an as-needed basis, and many already have a permanent work station set up at home.
With many agents choosing to spend their days remotely, it can become more difficult for real estate brokers, owners and managers to provide a team with value in the traditional ways. However, this doesn’t mean that you should give up!
Real estate office leaders who provide agents with value will see an increase in retention, recruitment and profitability. This can still be done even if you aren’t seeing your agents in-person — use these ideas to keep adding value to your team no matter where they’re working!
Send Video Updates – Use a video message to give quick company updates, celebrate milestones or share words of encouragement. Send them to individuals for more personalized messages. This will help boost the office community while giving the team a chance to see your face so they know you’re there for them!
Share Helpful Podcasts and Links — Saw or heard something interesting that your team can also benefit from? Share it with them! You might send podcast episodes or article links on the industry, or something contributing to personal or professional development. If the content reminds you of a conversation you had with a particular agent, send it to them directly along with a short message to let them know you’re thinking about them.
Attend Webinars — Found an online webinar or Facebook Live that you think the team could benefit from? Send out the link and request that they watch. Get the team together over video conference following the event to discuss some takeaways. P.S. Real estate leader Brian Buffini hosts frequent Facebook Live broadcasts where he shares market updates and takes questions live. Follow his Facebook page to never miss a broadcast!
Host Online Real Estate Trainings — The best way to provide your team with value from afar is to host online real estate trainings. Have them watch the modules on their own time and then gather everyone for a meeting (virtual or in-person) to review the content, check in and provide accountability. As a team leader, providing your agents with training demonstrates your commitment to their success while helping them increase their own skills and profits. It’s a win-win!
