Everyone has hit a plateau in their business at some point. You’re still working just as hard, and you’re doing pretty well, but you just can’t seem to break through to the next level.

If that sounds like you right now, don’t stress out. It’s normal to experience a series of peaks and plateaus throughout your career, especially when you work in real estate. When production begins to stagnate, that means it’s time to expand your business systems and skills with great real estate training in order to skyrocket toward your next peak.

To move from plateau to peak, you’ll want to follow these five steps.

  1. Check In with Your Business — Take stock of where you are at right now. Identify your income levels and how many transactions you’ve been completing. In order to advance off your plateau, you have to know where you are at right now. Don’t forget to also tally your production from the past few years for context!
  2. Remember Where You Started — Give yourself some credit for how far you’ve come since you started in your career. Avoid comparing yourself to other agents who are in the middle of their journey. If you’re feeling frustrated, focus on all the progress you’ve made over time and keep moving!
  3. Set a Goal — Define what the “next level” looks like to you and set a business goal based on that. You may aim to close one extra transaction a month or build a real estate team to take care of the leads you don’t have bandwidth to help. Knowing what your next peak looks like will help you get there.
  4. Expand Your Systems — Many agents plateau because their business has outgrown its current system. An insufficient system shouldn’t be the reason you aren’t able to work with someone! Avoid this situation by identifying where your system has fallen short, then seek out solutions to grow in that area. 
  5. Invest in Real Estate Training —  This is one of the most effective ways you can grow off a plateau. Buffini & Company provides real estate training programs for agents at all stages in their career. The Pathway to Mastery®—Advanced is great for veteran agents who feel like they’ve hit a wall (or plateau). This real estate training course will re-energize your business and leave you with new skills and systems to help you hit that next peak!
