May 10, 2023 – Mental Health in Real Estate

On Wednesday, May 10, we were joined by Josh Rosenberg of Royal LePage Westside Klein Group, and Chuck and Karen Bennett of Bennett Family Real Estate. Our guest speakers outlined their own mental health experiences in the demanding real estate profession, provided more awareness of some mental health-related topics, and shared resources that Managing Brokers and REALTORS® may find useful in navigating various mental health challenges.

Call to Action
This session on Mental Health in Real Estate was conducted because May is Mental Health Awareness Month. However, these conversations need to continue throughout the year. Please help support the very important work that Josh, Karen, and Chuck are doing on mental health issues in real estate by spreading the word about their work.
