Today’s Real Estate Tip is something that’s a little uncomfortable to talk about — the mental wellness / mental health crisis of REALTORS®. Yes, I know home sales have been through the roof so why would there be mental strain amongst our agents? The market is tough with our limited inventory. REALTORS® are constantly navigating buyer bidding wars day after day, making it difficult to close business.
REALTORS® are working seven days a week. They're working 10, 12, 16 hours a day trying to find solutions and logistics plans that we've never had to come up with before, and we do it with a smile on our faces. REALTORS® are burned out and exhausted and many agents are overly stressed and have trouble coping.
I want you to know that it's okay to admit if you're burned out. It's okay to admit if you're feeling a little bit sideways and your stomach hurts a little bit when the phone rings.
You need to know *HELP* is here with these two programs:

And if you think you don't matter to anybody, know this. You matter to this girl in North Carolina, and I will do everything I can to ensure that my neighbors are always protected by having a REALTOR at their side from now until forever.
While the NAR lawsuit judgment has stirred the real estate world, the industry is far from grinding to a halt. Real estate transactions will continue, and the role of REALTORS® in providing valuable guidance remains unchanged. Consumers should actively engage with their agents, and real estate professionals should focus on the value they bring to the table. The lawsuit is just one chapter in a continuously evolving industry, and both consumers and professionals need to stay engaged and informed.
