As real estate agents, we have all been in a situation where we looked at our business and thought, “If I am going to achieve success, I need to set goals, organize my schedule, and track my progress.”
At Well Planned Professional we created a step-by-step system to help you set a foundation to make success a consistent habit.
We’re juggling the demands of buyers, sellers, and brokers, running all over town to appointments, handling listings, prospecting, marketing, negotiations and transactions, attending networking events, serving our community, and much more — all while taking care of our families, our health, and personal life.
You got into real estate to forge your own path, create your own success, and tap into unlimited earning potential — with the freedom to run your own day and build a business around the things that matter most.
But more often than not, the day runs you, and flexibility means you’re working practically 24/7/365.
You’re constantly learning new things, staying on top of the market, trying to generate leads, and dealing with the ups and downs, ebbs and flows of money management and taxes.
Deep down, you know you can become a top producer…if you can only get a grip on working smarter and not harder to see greater rewards from your sacrifices.
Imagine having a system, guiding you through the process of setting up good habits of truthful analysis, goal setting, time management, strategic planning, evaluation, and rewarding progress.
The Well Planned Professional Real Estate Planner isn’t just a system to write down appointments so that you don’t forget an office meeting or a showing with a client.
This system is designed to keep you on track to becoming the best real estate agent in your market.
The A.C.H.I.E.V.E. Goal Setting and Planning System
Top agents attribute their success to setting clear and concise goals. Use this system to set personal or professional goals, long- or short-term goals, or even a BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) in a way that motivates you and drives you forward.
Any big goal needs to be broken down into manageable chunks. The most practical way to accomplish this is by setting specific benchmarks that allow you to measure your efforts while also keeping you on track to meet your ultimate goal.
Focus on creating a daily Strategy, learning to Prioritize, maximizing efficiency through Optimizing, and last but not least, Tackling your task lists. (To make this easier to remember, we’ve created a short acronym: S.P.O.T.)
Earning a reward after you have devoted time and energy to a goal is extremely satisfying. That is why the Well Planned Professional system incorporates a vision board to motivate and help keep us focused when working to complete the task.

You probably still have some questions about Well Planned Professional and The Real Estate Planner.
I understand! You want to make sure that this is the system for you!
Let me share with you just a few of the questions our customers frequently ask.
- Is this planner all I need, or do I need other planners as well?
The Real Estate Planner helps you easily manage business, home, and life all in one place. It’s more than a schedule and task list; it's a full system, designed to help you excel in your real estate career. As a result, this planner is all you will need for planning and goal setting in your real estate career while also managing your personal life.
- Where do I write down all of my appointments and events?
Each monthly spread of the Real Estate Planner is designed to be spacious enough to allow you to keep track of all of your appointments and events. You can also jot notes down in the extra space at the bottom of your weekly spread to make sure it’s in front of you on a daily basis.
- What if I know nothing about time management? How do I get started using Well Planned Professional?
I’m the kind of person who just naturally loves planners. But even I had to learn what it meant to use a planner well. So, I understand that it’s not easy to just pick up a new planner and instinctively know where to start. That’s why I’ve included the A.C.H.I.E.V.E Goal Setting and Planning System in the front of The Real Estate Planner. This system walks you through what it looks like to set goals, lay out your benchmarks and business plans, and work through the daily and weekly process of achieving success on your terms. It can feel like a lot when you first open your planner. But if you’ll walk through each step of A.C.H.I.E.V.E., you’ll be a planning pro in no time!
- How far ahead should I plan? Do I plan out one quarter? A full six months?
As you walk through The A.C.H.I.E.V.E Goal Setting and Planning System, you’ll learn how to lay out benchmarks for your goal period, helping you stay on track and meet your goals. Knowing your long term goals are important but breaking those goals down into smaller objectives with benchmarks is the way to stay on track. Know your 1 year goal but break it down and don't look farther down the road than 6 months.
