A Day in the Life of a Real Estate Agent

Take a peek into a typical day of a Driven Properties agent:

7 am: I wake up early in order to get some exercise before I start my day. If it’s not too hot outside, I go for a run around my neighbourhood, Dubai Marina. Otherwise, I head to the gym.

9 am: First thing I do when I get to the office is check my emails and respond to any messages I received the night before. After that, I update my existing properties on the system.

10 – 11 am: Every day, I make a to-do list of all the tasks I must achieve the following day, so I spend this hour going through it and figuring out how I’ll complete them.

11 – 12:30 pm: Early noon, I start calling my client list of landlords and sellers, catching up and collecting feedback. Over time, I’ve built a large network of investors with whom I’ve achieved a high level of trust. This is because I strive to deliver what I promise, and impressed with my services, clients often refer me to their connections.

12:30 – 1 pm: I take a quick 30 minute lunch break.

1 – 4 pm: I spend this time either going to viewings, property transfers, or networking with potential clients.

4 – 6 pm: My area specialization is Palm Jumeirah, and I often communicate with other top agents in that area for market research. I keep up with the properties, the prices, and get insider tips. I also search for new properties during this time.

6:30 – 7 pm: I look at more properties online to see what is currently on the market.

7 – 8:30 pm: Dinnertime.

8:30 – 9 pm: At the end of the day, I update my properties again online.

9 – 9:30 pm: I try to get in some outdoor activities before bed, perhaps a jog outside or a 30 minute workout at the gym. These physical activities aren’t only a way to keep fit or wind down, but also a networking opportunity.

On my day off, I always participate in activities such as water sports and volleyball, and they have proved to be a fun yet relaxed way to meet new clients. When you work in real estate, you have to learn how to always make every situation into an opportunity to make connections.
