Office Procedural Manual: Wrap-up

The Dog Days of summer and the Importance of Refueling Your Tank Ancient cultures believed the Dog Star, Sirius, and its close proximity to the sun was responsible for the steamy, sultry days of late summer.  Hence, the phrase “Dog Days of Summer” was born.  The actual dates vary depending on latitude and climate, but here in the Northern Hemisphere (please excuse me if you’re finding yourself south of the equator and reading this) these canine-themed summer days are happening just about now. 

Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress.  And there’s nothing like a lack of progress to strike fear and anxiety into the heart of a motivated Realtor!  As agents, we have the tendency to be in constant motion, often working seven days a week tending to client needs and open houses.  While it’s incredibly important to work hard and tend to our various responsibilities, it’s equally important to rest and rejuvenate.  You cannot give what you do not have, and you can’t run on an empty tank!


Striking a balance between work and play will make you a happier person, and a much more productive Realtor.  Finding balance is easier to accomplish when you’re well organized and have your systems in order.  To help you reach that goal we offer the final pages of your Office Procedural Manual – Payroll Schedule, Frequently Used Vendors, and Username and Password Reference.

Payroll Schedule will delineate pay periods and paydays for your team.

Frequently Used Vendors is an invaluable reference sheet.  An important part of our job as agents is to connect clients with vendors who can fulfill a specific need.  Use this sheet to easily contact your favorite Inspectors, Marketing Specialists, Handy People, Contractors, etc.

Your Username and Password Reference will eliminate wasted time and frustration searching for logins and passwords.  Just make sure to keep it in a secure place, giving access only to your trusted team.

We wish you success, rejuvenation, and balance in your work and life.
