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

Market shifts. Potential (or imagined) bubbles. Rising interest rates. Low inventory. The latest proptech. When you’re a real estate professional, there’s always something to cause angst, heartburn and sleepless nights.

At the same time, all of that stress makes it uber-important for you to take some time to regroup, recharge and take care of your business’s most important asset — you!

Last week, we asked: What’s keeping you up at night? Are you still sleeping like a baby, or do you feel like you’re working (and worrying) 24/7? Most importantly, what are you doing to manage all of the market movement, economic uncertainty and everyday stressors so that you can keep your peace and stay on track? Here’s what you said:

  • Finding a mentor
  • Thinking about the future
  • Helping my agents navigate these unprecedented times
  • Not getting offers within the first two weeks of a new listing
  • Keeping the agents focused on producing and thinking outside the box
  • Nothing related to real estate, where the only constant is change. If you can’t get comfortable with being uncomfortable, don’t be a broker.
  • Family illness and taxes
