At Inman Connect Las Vegas, July 30-Aug. 1, 2024, the noise and misinformation will be banished, all your big questions will be answered, and new business opportunities will be revealed. Join us.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer, just ended. School’s out (or soon will be) for summer. The spring real estate market is heading into its last few weeks. It’s been a tough year for many agents and brokers, and you may be forgiven if you’re just ready to get out of town and get away from it all.


We wondered what you’re planning for the months ahead: What are you looking forward to this summer? Are you taking some time off and planning a real vacation this year? Are you planning to spend some time on new training and continuing education? Are you trying to get your agents (and yourself) up to speed on new rules? Do you expect to see a fair number of buyers and homeowners continuing to shop and sell throughout the summer months? Here are your responses:

  • The lake home with grandkids
  • Two weddings and a trip to see the grandkids. All three are five days off each. I will see some friends and relatives whom I haven’t seen since prior to the pandemic.

From Inman’s Coast to Coast Facebook community (edited for length, clarity, anonymity):

  • Balance! Work hard while kiddos are in camps and play hard with family time/vacations when they’re home. Investing in ourselves and businesses, getting caught up on some learning, in-person meetups, masterminds and gym/sauna/health (yes, home sauna sessions are coming back!!) Excited to see our Inman fam NEXT month at ICLV!!
  • Focusing on sales production! I intend on hitting Elite Agent with REAL! I am also writing/publishing my first book.
  • Not focusing on work. Considering taking that gap year I never had
  • Building a business
