How to Prepare Yourself for Returning to Work Post- Quarantine

During the past few months, we have increased our online presence within our company, bringing educational training and meetings onto a virtual platform. This is a new trend we will continue to embrace, but we would be lying if we said we were not looking forward to getting back in our campuses (safely, of course.) Next week, we will begin a soft open of our campuses while implementing sanitation and social distancing practices. Through many conversations, we know that not everyone feels as prepared. In one of our recent online sales meetings, Dr. Dan Shiode gave us a few tips on preparing to go back to the workplace. Here are a few of our favorites.

  1. Take your time 
    Going back to working in an office does not have to happen full force. If you are uncomfortable, come back in stages, choosing to work from home two to three days a week. Even our CEO, Bob Hamrick, experienced some anxiety coming back to the office. Remember to practice relaxing daily habits to combat the stressors of re-entry. 
  2. Think about your clients 
    Whether you are worried about COVID-19, or not, realize that that it is a concern for many. Our campuses will be following strict reopening procedures, but as a real estate agent, you interact with your clients in many facets. Consider asking yourself these questions taking your clients well-being into account. Will you be offering gloves or masks to clients? Will you continue offering virtual meetings and showings?  
  3. Return mentally first   
    Getting back to a routine is essential because a lack of structure can increase stress. If you have let your normal work routine slip, start getting back in the habit of waking up at a certain time and dressing for work at home, before going into the office. Also reflect on the time you had at home. Have you added new self-care habits? Have you been spending more quality time with family? Think about any positive changes you have made and make a plan to continue to implement them as you return to work.

Our new campus features mountain and strip views for you to enjoy from the shaded rooftop deck. Not only are the views pretty to look at, there are many benefits to having an outdoor space to take short breaks. Just 10-15 min of sunshine is good for your mental health. Aside from absorbing Vitamin D, your brain also releases more serotonin and endorphins in turn, boosting your mood.   

Leave Your Mark | Outstanding Service

Jessie Sorani has been guiding families home in the Las Vegas Valley with Coldwell Banker Premier Realty since 2011. Jessie is no stranger to our Top-25 agent list, and won numerous awards at our Annual Awards Celebration, including Top-10 Sales Associates for GCI, which she grew by 33% in 2019. She prides herself in providing her clients with the most up-to-date market news and delivering superior customer service. This month, we are sitting down with Jessie to highlight her accomplishments and identify how she leveraged the resources offered by our Corporate Services team.


CBPR: Jessie, in 2019 you increased your GCI by 33%. How do you continue to grow your business year after year and to what do you credit that success?

Jessie: My business has been built on referrals! My clients know that they come first, and it means so much to me that they trust me to help them with one of the biggest decisions of their life. That trust results in the referral of their family and friends.

CBPR: I bet it is a wonderful feeling that your clients know you go above and beyond for them.  Is there any department at CBPR that assists you with your referral business?

Jessie: The Corporate Service department does a lot for me. They help me find great out-of-state agents for my clients who need to buy or sell in a different location. Their referral network ensures my clients receive the same level of service I would provide myself no matter where they plan on buying or selling real estate.

CBPR: With the referral business, do you find yourself overwhelmed on the backend with paperwork?

Jessie: No – and that’s the best part! Not only do the ladies in the Corporate Services department refer me business, they diligently watch over my transactions and remind me of upcoming deadlines.

CBPR: You were one of the agents selected as a guest speaker in our Mastermind with the Master classes. What was the one piece of advice you shared?

Jessie: My advice to new agents is to take failures or setbacks as a learning experience. Learn from your mistakes and use that knowledge to do better in the future. This is also true for agents who have already had success in the business. You should never think you are above learning new things. That is one of the reasons I love the classes offered at CBPR. We are always learning new strategies to help grow our business.

This interview originally took place pre Covid-19. We reached out to Jessie to find out how she has adjusted her business during this time.

CBPR: You mentioned previously that you have grown your business on personal and outgoing referrals. Have you noticed a shift in how you are working with clients, and what tip would you give to agents finding it difficult to navigate client relationships at this time?

Jessie: I wouldn’t say I have shifted my business practice much, but I am even more focused on checking in with my past clients. It is important to me that they know I am here for them, and not just when they need to buy or sell a home. One positive that has come from this situation is that Facetime has allowed me to have a deeper connection with my clients than traditional phone calls. I just closed a deal with an out-of-state buyer and being able to assist them from their home while they snuggled up with a dog on their lap was very special.
