Self-optimization for franchisees: Recognize and use development opportunities as a real estate agent

Regardless of whether you work as a freelance real estate agent or are already a license partner of the internationally renowned Engel & Völkers real estate franchise: In a management position, you are largely responsible for the success of your company thanks to your management style and your personal way of working. The principle of continuous self-optimization often plays a key role: By thoroughly reflecting on and subsequently improving your business model and your own behavioral patterns, you can help yourself achieve better results in the long term and noticeably enrich your career as a real estate agent. The Engel & Völkers Real Estate Franchise also follows this principle - learn more about the power of development and self-optimization in the following article!

Your strength as a franchisee: Analytically self-optimize your own work patterns

The process of self-optimization begins with the small things and requires that you deal intensively with your own way of working. Confront self-reflection as much as possible and figure out what defines your personal job profile as a real estate agent and franchisee. Do not be afraid to clearly state your identified weaknesses. Because this is exactly where the process of self-optimization comes in: Do you notice, for example, that you are not achieving the desired work performance during the day? Possibly, getting up earlier by shifting the main focus of your work to the morning hours can contribute to an improvement - this is the timeframe many people are statistically more productive. Do you feel insecure in contract negotiations or insufficiently informed in discussions with customers? In both cases, seminars and training can contribute to self-optimization. Wherever ways you find to improve your way of working: Self-optimization is the way to an efficient, motivated and ultimately successful career as a real estate agent!

Develop the full potential of your Engel & Völkers real estate company

The processes and structures of your real estate brokerage business also benefit your work process if you transfer the concept of self-optimization to it. In addition to internal self-reflection by you and your employees, you can also derive from the reaction of your customers in which areas of your franchise company there is room for optimization. Typical fields in which external coaching and training also come into play are, for example, internal communication between the individual real estate agents, a sensible and efficient distribution of tasks and time management. The conditions at the workplace, be they technical, social or sensory, can be improved through optimization processes. Successful optimization processes usually not only result in a higher productivity of the entire real estate company, but also contribute to a more pleasant working atmosphere and lower employee turnover. Even if the optimization of corporate processes is often associated with additional effort, the final results are usually able to justify the decision to consciously develop and change - a philosophy that Engel & Völkers as a franchisor emphatically represents.
