Busy Broker? Conquer Your Day with These 5 Time Management Hacks

Does your day feel like a whirlwind of understanding client needs, chasing down paperwork, and constant phone calls in between each task? You're not alone. Time management is a constant struggle for mortgage brokers everywhere, but it doesn't have to be.

With a few key strategies and the right tools, you can reclaim control of your day, boost your efficiency, and dedicate more time to what truly matters – growing your business and exceeding client expectations.

From our experience with hundreds of brokers these are the top shared struggles: 

Managing clients
Keeping track of appointments, deadlines, and the specific needs of a diverse client base can feel like a constant game of mental gymnastics.

The paper chase
Manual data entry, chasing down missing documents, and filling out repetitive forms eats away at valuable time that could be spent building relationships.

Administrative overload
Emails, phone calls, and other administrative tasks can easily consume your day, leaving little time for strategic work.

We get it, with only 24 hours a day - how can we work smarter? 

Here are 5 Actionable Hacks to Streamline Your Workflow:

  1. Batch similar tasks together
    Stop the constant context switching! Studies have shown that it takes at least 20 minutes to refocus on a task after being interrupted. Group similar tasks by client or category. Such as following up on all pre-approval cases or focusing on clients who are in the document collection stage. This allows you to focus on one type of activity at a time, significantly boosting your efficiency. Many platforms, like our Mortgage Brokers Portal, allow you to easily filter and group tasks by client, ensuring a smooth, batched workflow.

  2. Embrace Automation Tools
    Utilize tools like your CRM or dedicated platforms for automating repetitive tasks. Features like Smartfill (Coming soon!), can automatically populate forms based on existing client data (available on our Client Hub), saving you hours of manual data entry. Additionally, proposal generation tools can streamline the process of creating customized proposals for each client, freeing up valuable time for client consultations and strategic advice.

  3. Prioritize Ruthlessly
    Not all tasks are created equal. Learn to identify the high-value activities that drive revenue and client satisfaction. Consider leveraging tools like project management features within your broker platform to prioritize tasks, track progress, and ensure you're focusing on the activities that move the needle most. Utilize the freed-up time for strategic planning, client relationship building, or business development initiatives.

  4. Schedule Focused Work Time
    Effective multitasking is a myth! Block out dedicated time slots in your calendar for focused work on high-value tasks. During these sessions, minimize distractions by silencing notifications, closing unnecessary browser tabs, and utilizing features offered by some broker platforms that streamline communication and minimize interruptions.

  5. Delegate Effectively
    Empower your team members! As your business grows, consider delegating administrative tasks and specific client interactions. Utilize features like team roles and performance tracking offered by our Mortgage Brokers Portal to assign tasks effectively, monitor team progress, and ensure everyone is working towards the same goals. This allows you to focus on higher-level management and strategic initiatives.
