We know working from home can be an adjustment. As real estate agents, we have had to learn the hard way how to manage our flexible schedule and keep on task when it is time to focus. Here are five of our favorite tips to stay productive and consistent in your routine.

1. Location, Location, Location


Try to find yourself a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock — that means get off the couch, and definitely out of bed. Click here for more info.



2. Bring The Outdoors In 

If you do not have any greens in your designated work from home location, consider adding some indoor plants to create a more inviting and creative space. Plus, they make your home’s air healthier!

Check out the link here for some ways to freshen up your home décor with a touch of green.



3. Repurpose your Commute

A major perk of working from home is ditching the commute. Use this time in the morning for a workout, self-renewal, or family time.



4. Show your face

When possible, use video over the standard conference call to help create more interactions and avoid loneliness.

Checkout video conferencing resources such as ZoomBlueJeansSkype, or Lifesize.



5. Create lists

Every morning, create a list of what you will deliver by the end of the day. If it’s helpful, scribble these down the night before so you can dive straight into work in the morning.

If you don’t have a physical notepad handy, I LOVE the “Google Keep” in G Suite. Keep offers a variety of tools for taking notes, including text, lists, images, and audio.
