12 New Year Resolutions

for Real Estate Agents In 2023

By Gianne Orillosa

The start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to set resolutions for yourself. Here are twelve new year’s resolutions for real estate agents to ensure you’re on top of your game.

1. Establish a morning routine. 

Successful real estate agents maintain a morning routine to stay productive, organized, and motivated.

2. Decide what you want to achieve. 

Need more work/life balance in your daily life? Visualize the year you want, and set your goals now. Focus on what matters most.

3. Make sure your sphere of influence is up-to-date. 

If you last updated your contacts in a while, make this your first task of the new year. Besides avoiding chasing irrelevant leads, you’ll add some that could also turn into new business.

4. Take a new headshot. 

Investing in a new headshot is an investment in your brand. However, amateur photographs and headshots of yesteryear can send the wrong message: inauthenticity and unprofessionalism. Since it is one of the first things people notice, make the first impression of your headshot count.

5. Take part in more webinars. 

Expand your knowledge and develop new skills by participating in webinars. Webinars help you save on gas, are often free, and only last for 60 minutes. Continuous learning is always an excellent new year’s resolution.

6. Keep up with the latest market trends. 

Knowing what is happening in the market is one of the most critical components of being a real estate agent. Your clients look to you to be their trusted advisor. Knowledge gives you an edge over the competition and builds client trust.

7. Post on social media every day. 

With millennials making up a significant share of new homebuyers, you better believe they’re checking your social media pages as part of building your brand. Establish yourself as an expert in your local market by posting on social media daily as part of your new year’s resolutions.

8. Publish more videos. 

Videos are a powerful tool for communicating with your sphere, whether they are a weekly market update, a new listing tour, or buyer/seller tips. 85% of buyers and sellers prefer videos, so make this part of your new year’s resolution.


9. Blogging is for everyone. 

For businesses like real estate, blogging has become an essential marketing strategy. A blog is a great way to drive traffic to your website, engage your customers and build trust with your audience.

10. Take your email marketing to the next level. 

If done correctly, email marketing can convert leads faster than a snap of the fingers. If not, you could be sending future clients to your competitors. Consider updating your email marketing content as part of your new year’s resolutions.

11. Embrace new technologies. 

Many tools and technologies available today can streamline your processes, allowing you to focus more time on your clients and closing sales. Make it your new year’s resolution to utilize tools such as KW Command.

12. Get in touch with local businesses. 

The best way to build a good rapport and to keep you top-of-mind is to establish relationships with the businesses in your community. In addition to lead generation, making genuine connections with your community is equally important.

Sometimes, even the slightest tweak in a routine can yield significant results. Think about where you can focus your efforts to maximize your success in your business this new year. 

The best way to ensure success in 2023 as a real estate agent is to have good habits and to use your resources appropriately.
