We stay busy year round .. we are always starting, continuing, dropping, or adding to our marketing and advertising venues ...this could be updating pictures, refreshing a listing, blogging, farming, updating our website...currently we are working on our Christmas greetings, backing up the months files on the external hard drive. Our daily routine is working with buyers, referrals, updating sellers. Do we take some time off... that's the beauty of working as a team.. one us us is always available... we work together...it's a very successful partnership.

NOt really that slow, This is my best 4th quarter since 2008.

Mostly after Thanksgiving I invest my time into: Marketing, Developing more aggressive and efficient marketing systems, CRMs, etc..

Send Holiday Greetings to everyone and try to enrich current relationships to promote more referrals in 2013.

This year I'm busy preparing for several closings before the year is out. TG, I am feeling the bottom in Philly is long gone now.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

All the best,

Like most, this 4th quarter has been busy! However, to answer the question :) ....
Every moment I have free I try to improve myself or my business. I work on my list of books to read (or listen to through Audible.com), get a certification, investigate a new technology, or look at what others are doing to be successful that I might want to add (or not). I LOVE this part of my business!

Normally in January I revamp my marketing plans, work on New Years cards, etc. December is still very busy for me and given the number of clients I have appointments with in the coming weeks, I don't see it slowing down!

It's usually pretty busy all year round out here where it doesn't snow! But when I have time at the end of the year, I'm working on my bookkeeping, Xmas card lists, thank you gifts, postcards, emails and oh, yes, some family time!! Happy Holidays!

Check all the links on your website and be sure they are current. Send Christmas greetings to every address in my CRM. Webinars. Research for future blog topics. Shine up my listing flyers or create new templates for a new look. Review my client lists to be sure I haven't left anything hanging. Anybody say "contact me in January?" Be ready to do that. Enjoy the holidays!

Well lucky for me, I'm pretty busy here in Chicago. But if I wasn't I would clean up my lists(mailings, emails, phone), read all the real estate magazine I receive. take some classes or listen to webinars,contact past clients, or have some fun.:)

'notoriously slow time of the year'?!
Not slow here in Valley, CA. It is probably the busiest for last few years.

Continue to work your systems, streamline, organize, brain storm, fix broken, systems. Everyday continue to grind , it will pay off. Stay busy...

No holiday slow down in Orange County! Suprisingly, lack of inventory has kept us busy with both fielding multiple offers or writing offers when scarce new listings come on the market.

In AZ this is the time of the year we are VERY busy as our snowbirds have begun their yearly trek to the beautiful, sunny Southwest.

OK. I beg to differ with you.... This is the 1st winter in 5 years that we are Boo Coo Busy.
With the interest rates this low ( and if the Buyer qualifies ) the buyers are realizing that this is the bottom.
Also the Investor realizes this too with the 3rd quarter showing a constant improvement with resales in the Philadelphia Bucks County Area.

BUT... we're not too busy to get out those holiday cards :-)
