No.  However, since I do not have a team (nor do I want one) if I get too many clients at one time, I do refer some out.  Granted, I can handle a lot but once I get too many I do not want my service(s) I provide to suffer.   Sometimes less is more.

No. The more the merrier, and in 2 states, Hawaii and California. And, yes, I have a lot of backup; however, I do the "client relations" part.

No.  I've not had more than I can handle.  If that day ever comes, I would most likely just get a support staff setup to help, rather than limit myself.

Last spring/summer, you could only list one home every few days, as you would have 50+ showings, multiple offers and your phone would ring off the hook.  Same thing with buyers, show many homes, write several offers prior to getting one accepted.  Yes, know when to stop accepted new clients.

 Good morning Sally and David. I know some agents who work with one buyer and one seller at a time. I know it limits them, but it seems to work as it gives them time for family as well.
