Not sure whether you’ve heard the news. But, last year, Short Sale Expeditor® CEO, Melissa Zavala, published a real estate planner entitled The Essential Daily Planner for Real Estate Agents: Success in 10 Minutes a Day.

In fact, Shark Tank star and real estate mogul, Barbara Corcoran, had this to say about the book: “This clever book is a business coach and an accountability tool all in less than 250 pages! Read it, use it, and watch your productivity skyrocket!” The planner is available on Amazon. And, if you want to get a head start and amp up for 2015, you may want to check it out!
