The Power of Sprint Goals



We are truly in a season of CHANGE, and so many in our industry have felt like they’ve been in a holding pattern over the last six months especially. NOW is the time to change things up, and re-energize yourself, your team, and your productivity.

One of the best ways to do that is with SPRINT GOALS. Defined as short-term objectives completed within 30 days or less, are particularly suited to the dynamic and ever-changing landscape of the real estate industry.

Sprint Goals for Agents: Boosting Listing Inventory

Securing listings is more critical than ever. Agents can leverage sprint goals to intensify their listing activities, setting specific targets such as hosting a certain number of open houses weekly or reaching a targeted number of new prospects through social media campaigns each month. These precise, short-term goals help agents maintain a clear focus and drive actions that directly contribute to increasing their listing inventory.

Sprint Goals for Brokers: Strategic Recruitment and Team Building

For brokers, this is a great time for team expansion and re-imagining what your team looks like. Implementing sprint goals can streamline the recruitment process, making it a more structured and outcome-focused endeavor. Brokers should set daily recruiting call goals as well as a goal to conduct a specific number of interviews weekly or to connect with potential team members at industry events. These goals not only facilitate effective recruitment but also help in building a cohesive and robust team dynamic.

Action Steps: The Pathway to Achievement

Each sprint goal must be paired with actionable steps to ensure progress. For example, if a broker’s goal is to improve team communication, an action step could be to initiate regular team meetings or feedback sessions. These actions serve as the building blocks for achieving the set goals, providing a clear path forward and ensuring accountability.

Team Engagement and Office-Wide Goals

Creating sprint goals that involve the entire office can lead to a more engaged and collaborative team environment. Collective goals encourage team members to work together towards common objectives, enhancing teamwork and fostering a sense of shared achievement.

The Role of Gamification and Rewards

Introducing rewards and gamification into the sprint goal framework can significantly enhance motivation and participation. By setting up a system where achievements are recognized and rewarded, brokers and agents can transform their work into a more enjoyable and competitive experience, driving productivity and success.

In Summary

Sprint goals offer a pragmatic and effective method to stay focused and agile in a fast-paced industry. By setting clear, attainable objectives and pairing them with actionable steps, real estate brokers and agents can significantly improve their operational efficiency, team dynamics, and overall market performance.

This is the time of year to keep your agents focused on setting those short-term goals. Set sprint goals for the office that they can achieve as a team and reward their success.

Recruiting can sometimes seem daunting, but sprint goals help put some fun into it. Create a reward system for yourself each week you stay on track and committed to making those goals a reality. Stay positive, present, and clear on what you want to accomplish – then go for it.
