90% of the overall real estate agent population would give their left arm if they could make that choice.

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.
Not sure, never been in that situation. I'm thinking yes, to offer my best service... but can't say.
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.
I do not, i have not ever maxed out where i couldnt handle it. I love to be busy and new sellers and buyers seem to bring even more new clients.
Only if it gets complicated and I can't handle everyone as they need to be.
If I get more clients than I can give quality service to at one time, I will refer any new prospect to another colleague.
Not really. Where we don't work with clients is if we feel they violate our core values.
Sally, David - I'd rather get help from someone and work with as many.
Sally and David - I wish I had that problem. If I had too many clients to work with, I would either hire an assistant or refer them out.
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.
No when it comes to listings! I would limit the number of buyers at one time if it became too much! Has not happened lately. Nice situation to have
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.
The most we worked with at one time was 29 Short Sales (Listings) "back in the day". It was busy - but not impossible.
Generally no, since I have my system fine tuned and it works!
I work with people I enjoy working with and occassionally when there is too much demand on my time, I refer clients to a few select agents who I trust will provide the same quality of service that I do.
Good morning Sally. I do not limit the number of clients that I have, if I needed to, I would add another assistant, currently have two.
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.
Not really. If things get super busy, I'll share some of my transactions with a colleague.
I would limit myself if I had so many that I was not offering good service. I would refer out the ones I didn't have time to help.
Not at all. I've only been a bit overwhelmed a few times over the last few years, and it always ends up evening out very quickly.
Not at that point yet
Nope, bring them on. I can manage and if not I will call in help.
Sellers - No , Buyers - yes only 5 at a time !
No I don't turn down businesss
We limit the number of appointments per week. My close rate goes down when I have too many.
Yes to your question. My business model doesn't handle production just people
No limits on Sellers/buyers only on cocktails!
Sally & David,
I have an outstanding broker associate Kim Gaston who can back me up so I don’t have a limit.
For many years, I have used a group of associates to whom I have referred home buyers and home sellers. It is nice to know that a number of your prospects are looking at homes at the same time.
Yes- I want to provide top notch service so I limit myself at 10 listings and 6 or 7 buyers at a time.
No we do not. And we are very careful who we work with. A
