Let's Talk about the Mental Health Crisis in the Real Estate Profession

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.
