Ditch the Doom: Overcoming Fear in Real Estate and Embracing Change (Episode 427)

Hey there, friends and fellow risers! It’s Neil here with Mindi, and boy, do we have a real talk lined up for you today on the Agent Rise Podcast.

We’re diving headfirst into the whole Burnett vs. NAR drama that’s got everyone in a tizzy. I mean, if you’ve even glanced at the news, you’re probably thinking the sky’s falling, right? And it’s hard not to, with all this doom and gloom everywhere you look.

But here’s the real deal: Mindi and I are not about to let the negativity win. It’s like we’re in this massive real estate mastermind group on Facebook, and what was meant to be a place for sharing and growth has turned into this anonymous fear fest. Mindi had enough—she hit that peace out button with a sense of “I’m done with this!”

And you know what? It’s all about the value we bring to the table. We’ve got to stay sharp, keep our negotiation skills on point, and show our clients why we’re indispensable. Mindi’s right—change has always been part of the game, and it’s about how we dance in the rain, not just waiting for the storm to pass.

This isn’t just about blocking out the noise (though that’s a start). It’s about grounding ourselves in gratitude and the good we’ve done and can do. It’s hard to be scared when your heart’s full of thanks, isn’t it? So let’s replace the ‘what ifs’ with a big ol’ heap of appreciation.

The big takeaway? Stick with it. Be the real estate rockstar you’re meant to be. The agents who just show up without putting in the work, without the heart—they won’t last. But you? You’re here for the long haul.

When others see a closed door, we see the ones swinging wide open. Opportunities are ripe for the taking for those who are prepared. And it’s not just about bracing for change—it’s about embracing it, running with it.

So, if you find yourself fretting about what’s coming down the pipeline, remember that fear is a choice. Choose strength, choose growth, choose gratitude. It’s about getting back to the roots of why we do what we do—serving people, helping them through one of the biggest decisions of their lives, and making a real difference.

And hey, if social media’s getting you down, if the mastermind groups are more about doom than development, it’s okay to say goodbye. Cleanse your palate and your feed, and surround yourself with the kind of people who lift you up and push you forward.

It’s about being the kind of agent who survives the shifts and thrives in them. Because at the end of the day, we’re not just selling houses; we’re building a legacy of service, authenticity, and resilience.

Thanks for tuning in, and don’t forget to keep rising, keep shining, and most importantly, keep grinding. The world needs agents like you, now more than ever.
