Tip: Treat your business with the respect it deserves by investing in it with money and education.
Sales associate Amber Burke, ABR®, closed almost $5 million in home sales last year. It makes you wonder what she could do if she worked Wednesdays.
Since her son was born three years ago, Burke has made Wednesdays her “Mom day,” the day she puts her business at Century 21 at the Rockies in American Fork, Utah, on the back burner.
That leaves the other days of the week to market properties at a Tamarak Homes new-home development for which she’s the exclusive listing salesperson and to tend her growing practice helping buyers, many of them first-timers.
So far her schedule has worked well: Burke was named top sales associate at her company in 2001.
Burke started her real estate career in new-home sales, but now she’s expanding into existing-home sales, giving her more flexibility with buyers. “It boils down to helping them decide what’s best for them,” she says. “I can give them advice about both markets.”
