Up to 65% of agents admit to feeling stressed

24 April 2018

Over 60% of the real estate agents reported feeling stressed in a report on the state of wellness and wellbeing in the industry.

Jet Xavier, Australia’s leading elite performance mental skills and mindset coach in the real estate sales industry, launched a survey last year to understand the state of wellness and wellbeing in the industry.

The outcome was the Revive project which released a research white paper of the results and held a Summit in July 2017 where it released some of its findings. Find out more about the report here.

Jet said: “Whilst the real estate industry provides an opportunity to achieve great things in business and in life, it also carries a unique intensity. As a mindset and success coach who has delivered thousands of coaching sessions to the industry all around Australia, it has been my observation that many agents are never able to achieve both a balanced life and a successful career.

“There are two sides to the real estate industry in Australia. The first is a high-gloss and perfect platform to create success in life and business with its uncapped commission structures, flexible work hours and people orientated environments.

“The second side is a high-pressured and burned out underbelly where wellness and wellbeing are not on the agenda and agents are becoming unwell, struggling with financial strain and in many cases leaving the industry, after experiencing the detrimental impact of imbalance.”

The white paper aims to provide the foundation of a shift from the ‘old-school’ towards a progressive and contemporary approach to wellness and wellbeing to put the real estate industry in alignment with global best practice.
