Being a real estate agent can often be likened to Greek mythology’s Sisyphus rolling a boulder up a hill day in and day out. Once a sale is closed and your clients move in, it’s on to the next transaction.
While many REALTORS® thrive in this type of fast-paced environment, when you spend so much time doing your job, it’s a smart idea to remind yourself that you’re good at it. To get some perspective, we asked a few of our 2023 Real Estate Newsmakers the following question:
“While the hustle never stops in real estate, how do you take time to remind yourself of your success?”
Here’s what they had to say:
Head of Agency
Real Estate Webmasters
“I think that hustle culture actually perpetuates an unstable mentality that leads to burnout. I also think it’s important to foster a positive mindset and to regularly remind yourself of your successes as a source of motivation and self-appreciation. I do this by reading positive reviews, keeping a list of accomplishments and working closely with a mentor.”
President and CEO
“Real estate is a lifestyle, so you must consistently hustle, but be grateful for what is so rewarding when you achieve the most in a neighborhood for your seller or win that contract for your buyer. My biggest reminder of success now that I am a broker is in the success of our individual agents and teams. I call it Reach One, Teach One. Zig Ziglar said it best: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
Vice President of Sales
“Our fundamental principle, Humans Over Houses®, serves as the guiding force behind all our decisions. Embracing the Humans Over Houses® philosophy means recognizing the value of each individual and acknowledging that we are more than just transactions. It’s about fostering genuine connections and prioritizing people’s needs and well-being above all else. Sometimes that means forcing myself to take a break or a vacation to connect with my family and myself. I recently did this and it reminded me that you cannot be your best for anyone if you are running on fumes.”
