THE FINAL WEEK OF 2012 ~ MAKE IT COUNT!

THE FINAL WEEK OF 2012 ~ MAKE IT COUNT!

Reflections

What a ride the year 2012 has held!  There have been some major highs and of course some lows.  All in all however, we have seen a recovery in most real estate markets and for now, things in our business appear to be steady!

As I evaluate and reflect on my year in 2012, I look for the final week as a time to wrap up some loose ends as well as some planning and evaluating.  Here are some of the items that I will tackle during this final week of the year:

  1. Begin gathering receipts and bills for tax time.
  2. Sending out letters to all clients who closed property in 2012 to send them a copy of their HUD statements for taxes as well as the reminder to send in information to the county for Homestead taxes.
  3. Cleaning out files, getting them in order and packing away old files.
  4. Organize office.
  5. Set goals for 2012 for business, personal & physical.
  6. Meet with team members to plan company goals and strategize.
  7. Evaluate marketing for the past year and decide what you will stick with, what you will do away with and what you may want to try this year.
  8. Plan some vacations and put them on the calendar.
  9. Inventory signs, lock boxes, riders, etc.  Replace worn or damaged items.
  10. Inventory paper products such as business cards, stationary, etc.  Place orders if needed.
I enjoy getting ready for a new year.  Out with the old and in with the new is a great way to get prepared for a great new year!  Use this last week of 2012 to begin now to have a fantastic 2013!
