How to Achieve Success in Real Estate:

6 Fundamental Steps to Personal Development

By Gianne Orillosa

For 2023 to be your best year, here are six fundamental steps to improve yourself and your real estate career.

Step 1: Put Yourself First

Schedule all of your me time, such as vacations for the year, first. Why? One, it gives you time to do these things, so you can make time to do them. Two, it makes your work time more urgent, motivating you to be more productive when you’re working.


Step 2: Focus

People set many goals every year, and most fail. Why? Because too many goals equal too little concentration on any one plan. Set a few meaningful goals (read: 1 Tool to Help You Achieve Your Real Estate Goals). Display your goals so you can always see them, monitor your progress, and celebrate your successes as you achieve them.


Step 3: Sleep, Eat Well, and Exercise

Sleep is how your body heals from the stress of the day. Stop splurging your commissions on unhealthy food and drinks. Start a wellness plan so you can look and feel good. Set 30 minutes to 1 hour a day to exercise, whether it be weightlifting, yoga, or walking.


How you feel on the inside shows on the outside. So, ensure you feel healthy and energetic, and see how that affects your real estate career.

Step 4: Build Your Tribe

Strengthen your relationships with like-minded agents. Spend time with them, learn from each other, and encourage each other. Likewise, unfollow and move on from those who give off negative vibes and bring you down.


Step 5: Expand Perspectives

Read one book a month, or listen to audiobooks.


Step 6: Find New Mentors and Be Accountable

You don’t have to learn everything. Get a coach or an accountability partner to learn from and to inspire you. Keller Williams Ortigas-27C Realty can help you with that. Our support system can make a big difference.
