How to Measure Your Growth as a Real Estate Admin

measure your real estate career growth

Whether it’s your third month or your tenth year working as a real estate admin, it can be tough to measure your growth. After all, it takes time to learn a new skill; how do you know if you’re getting better when – day by day – the changes seem so minimal? 

At Kammbium, we’ve worked with hundreds of talented real estate assistants across the U.S. and Canada. We know a thing or two when it comes to recognizing growth. 

Take Notes

It all starts with good note taking. Every Friday, take a few minutes to sit down and summarize your last week by writing about the following:

  1. Successes
  2. Challenges
  3. Goals for the Following Week

Try to be specific. For example, when you’re writing about your goals, set goals that are measurable. “I want to help my agent find new leads,” is immeasurable, while “I want to obtain twenty new email contacts for my agent over the next week,” is measurable. 

Then, each week you’ll be able to reflect on whether or not you achieved your goals. If you did, put it under “Successes”. If you didn’t, put it under “Challenges”.

If you’re just getting started in a new role you might find that the “Challenges” section is a bit hefty – but don’t worry – as you grow, the content in these sections will ebb and flow. Some weeks, you’ll only have things to celebrate!

Tally It Up

At the end of the month, go through your list of “Successes” and write down all the major victories that you’ve had over the last month. You might be surprised by what you find (and what you’ve forgotten about)!

By doing this, you’re not only giving yourself the ability to recognize your growth, but you also have clear documentation of your skills to highlight at your next performance review. When you’re asked the dreaded “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” question, you have everything you need to show your employer that you’re always looking for ways to improve.

After all, there’s nothing more impressive than someone who holds themselves accountable, but who also knows their worth!

Celebrate

The most important part of recognizing your growth is finding small ways to celebrate it. Believe it or not, the little victories are just as important as the big ones! Maybe you treat yourself to ice cream, or simply share your success with a partner, family member, or friend. There is no right or wrong way to acknowledge the hard work that you’ve been putting in. You should be proud of the dedication that you’re showing towards building your career. 

Let this be the year you measure and celebrate your growth. You’re worth it.
