Realtor Success Tips: Simple Strategies to Deal with Job Stress

Let’s face it. Being in real estate can be stressful. While this career path has many, many benefits, it also can be stressful at times. A real estate agent can routinely feel bombarded from all sides. There is a lot to contend with. Wishy-washy buyers, delusional sellers, spending all day in the car, and constantly being on an electronic device can all combine with the pressures of private life to form a toxic deluge of stress.

There are obvious, tried and true ways that work for many and in this post, we wanted to share some tips to beat realtor stress!

One great way to combat stress in your career as a realtor is exercise. Joining a gym or hitting the track for a runner’s high does it for some. It’s no secret a good workout lowers stress and increases happiness.

Relaxation methods fight stress as well. Some people try yoga or meditation. Others get results by taking a leisurely stroll through a city park or trail.

Companionship is another great way to beat realtor stress. Making the time to get together with family and friends is a proven way to combat stress from the job. It often does wonders to talk about our stresses with the people we’re closest to. Even spending time with a beloved pet is proven to lower stress levels. Try tossing your dog a frisbee or playing with your cat.

It might seem silly, but superstitions such as knocking on a wooden table, not walking under a ladder, or going out of your way to avoid a black cat crossing your path can actually have real life benefits. These things give us sense of overcoming bad luck, and therefore add to our overall emotional state. It’s all in the mind, but hey, whatever works, right?

Another good mental technique for battling stress is to create positive self fulfilling prophecies. Often what we expect to happen happens. Keep a positive outlook and expect things to work out. Even if they don’t in the end, you will have defeated the stress caused by dread, both physically and mentally.

We often attack the biggest problems in our life first, neglecting the smaller victories we could be achieving in the moment. Sometimes we need to build up steam by taking the little wins we can achieve quickly. These smaller victories will add up to greatly reduce overall stress.

If you’re having a hard time combating the stress in your life, give some of these methods a try. And if you are looking for a new career in real estate, consider joining Big Block Realty!

Real Estate Entrepreneur Success Tips

AID-100159548s a real estate professional, you are essentially an entrepreneur.

There are many benefits to this lifestyle, from having more control over your career to experiencing the freedom to set your goals high as well as determine your schedule and tasks.

Entrepreneurship also has its challenges, one of which was mentioned in a recent article by international sales expert and New York Times best-selling author, Grant Cardone.

In a featured article in “Entrepreneur” Cardone talked about entrepreneur burnout, or more specifically how he doesn’t believe in it.

Cardone’s advice is to step back and remember what it was like when you first started out in the business.

What were your goals?

What was driving you at that time?

Maybe you are just now starting out.

Remember these early days because challenges will come.

But with the right attitude and drive, you can achieve great things!

Here are a few key takeaways we got from the article. Hopefully these tips will help you in your real estate career!

  • Set a Goal – What are you working toward? Without a goal, you’ll just be putting forth a lot of effort without knowing where to direct it. When you reach your goal, set a new one. Never stop setting goals and pushing yourself to be better than you thought you could be.
  • Don’t get Comfortable – Cardone says comfort is a dangerous thing. Complacency means you are no longer pushing yourself. Don’t let yourself get complacent or comfortable. Keep your edge and stay competitive.
  • Look to the Future – This goes along with having a goal, but it’s more than that. Picture yourself in the future. What does your life look like? What do you look like? Who do you see yourself surrounded by? When you can visualize these things, you can begin to set goals that will help them become a reality. Always keep the future in the forefront of your mind.
  • Challenge Yourself – Take on new tasks that challenge and stretch you outside of your comfort zone. This is an important part of being successful as a real estate professional and an entrepreneur. Keep your entrepreneurial spirit alive by reaching for more.
