Being a CT REALTOR® is great almost all of the time because you get to run on your own schedule and spend a large part of your work life running from place to place and enjoying the sites and sounds of your town all along the way. However, when you run into hot and sticky weather like we’ve had the last few days you can head home after a long day of running around and be a hot sticky mess.
We’re here to help you avoid that. There’s nothing worse then finishing up with your work for the day and feeling like your clothes are stuck to you so tightly that you can’t get out of them.
If you follow these five steps, not only will you get your Connecticut real estate work done, but you’ll also arrive home calm, cool and collected.
Step #1: Gather up the mobile device that you find to be the easiest to do work on. This might be your laptop, maybe a tablet or even just as simple as a smart phone. This device will be the hub of your day and will allow you to remain in one place and access all of the materials you need to get your job done.
Step #2: Find a local spot that has wifi and air conditioning. These are the two most critical elements to being successful at beating the heat and still operating at a high level. Might I suggest Starbucks, Breuggers or even the public library.
Step #3: Situate yourself in a place that you won’t be easily disturbed. Find a corner table where you can spread out and talk on the phone if need be. This might be a little bit harder if you’re in the library, but you can still have quiet conversations in the right spot at the library.
Step #4: Use your wireless device to access all of the information you need from the MLS. Do you need MLS listing data? There’s a website for that (See Data Co-Op.) The good news is you can access this information from any device on any web browser. Now that’s pretty cool!!
Step #5: Pour yourself a tall glass of ice cold lemonade, pat yourself on the back and say job well done. You did your job without breaking a sweat on the hottest day of the year. You should be commended.
