How to Overcome Rejection

Posted on | August 16, 2018

Rejection: the big bad fearsome word. Unfortunately, it’s something that we all have to work through to keep bettering ourselves.

Being a realtor means understanding those “no’s” and not taking them personally.

Turn those Frowns Upside Down

It’s important to remember that we all learn from our losses. Own those rejections and don’t place blame on anyone. Think of the setback as an opportunity to learn and grow as a realtor and find a way to avoid the same rejection the next time.

Keep Track

If you have a certain goal in mind when it comes to closing, keep it realistic. Understand that if you are wanting to do 15 listings a month, you’ll need 30 appointments to help generate the listings you really want.

Applying long-term goals will help motivate you to correctly frame your goals in handling those rejections a little better.


Move towards any goals you have in mind for your future. Reward and praise yourself for a job well done.

Success is not immediate – it takes time, and it is not linear. Even the big people up top still have disappointments.

Breathe in and Breathe Out

Surround yourself with like-minded individuals and think positively. Sure, this can be hard to accomplish some days, but those moments of rejection do not sum up your hard work as a realtor.
