How I Maintain Work-Life Balance as a REALTOR®

As someone who has been in the Real Estate industry for several years, I can say that being a REALTOR® is a very demanding job. It requires a lot of dedication, hard work, and time commitment to meet the needs of the clients. However, it’s important to have a good work-life balance to prevent burnout and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Here are some tips that helped me achieve a good work-life balance as a REALTOR® and might help you too!


  • Set Boundaries: One of the most important things you can do to maintain a good work-life balance is to set boundaries. This means establishing specific working hours and sticking to them. Make sure your clients know when you’re available to work and when you’re not. One great example on this is my sleeping habit, it follows a simple routine where I consistently go to bed at 10 PM and wake up at 6 AM or earlier.


  • Prioritize Your Time: Another important aspect of maintaining a good work-life balance is prioritizing your time. Determine which tasks are most important and prioritize them accordingly. This way, you’ll be able to focus on the most crucial tasks and get them done efficiently.


  • Make Time for Yourself: As a REALTOR®, it’s easy to get caught up in work and forget about your personal life. However, it’s essential to take time for yourself to avoid burnout. Make sure you have a hobby or activity that you enjoy doing outside of work. As for me, I always make sure to reward myself for working hard by spending time for the things and the people I love (including Milly!)


  • Learn to Say No: Sometimes, saying no is the best thing you can do for yourself. If you’re already swamped with work and someone asks for more, it’s okay to decline. Remember that you’re only human, and you need to take care of yourself too.


  • Take Time Off: Finally, don’t forget to take time off from work. Whether it’s a vacation or a day off, taking time to relax and recharge is essential for your mental and physical health. It will also help you come back to work feeling refreshed and more productive.


Let me also share some of the personal activities and hobbies that I do and enjoy to relax and recharge outside of work:

  1. Fishing: Fredericton is surrounded by beautiful lakes and rivers, making it an ideal location for fishing enthusiasts like me! Since spring is in full swing now, I make time to take a break from work, grab my fishing gear, and enjoy a peaceful day by the water with my friends.

  1. Walking our dog: If you know me or follow me on my social media accounts, you surely know Milly (Milly is all over my social media accounts lol) . Walking Milly will always be on my daily to-do list.

Taking your pet for a walk is not only good for them, but it’s also good for you. It’s an opportunity to get some fresh air, exercise, and spend some quality time with your pet.

  1. Family Day: Setting aside a day of the week for family activities is a great way to strengthen family bonds and create memories. It can be anything from a movie night to a picnic at one of the beautiful parks in Fredericton. As for me and my family, we usually spend Family day travelling, cooking and watching movies together.

  1. Reading: Reading is a great way to unwind after a long day. It can help reduce stress, improve your mental focus, and broaden your knowledge. This really helps me relax and clear my mind especially on a jam-packed week.


These are just a few examples of personal activities and hobbies that can also help you achieve a good work-life balance. Remember to take time for yourself and prioritize activities that make you happy.


Achieving a good work-life balance is essential for everyone. Remember that taking care of yourself is important for your mental and physical well-being, and it will ultimately make you more productive and successful in your career. So take the time to relax, recharge, and enjoy. I hope these tips have been helpful, and I wish you all the best in balancing your work and personal life.
