REIP supports RISEx – this event is a must attend for the whole industry
I am excited to connect with you post my appointment as CEO of REIP. I officially started in the role on the 22nd of September and over the coming months I look forward to sharing with you our new initiatives, opportunities and partnerships.
Across the country we are all working through the impact COVID-19 has had on our people, clients and businesses. And through this crisis it has been identified that the mental health epidemic is impacting the real estate industry at alarmingly high rates. Sadly, many of us know people – friends, family – who have been impacted and from time to time have felt anxious ourselves.
One of the REIP pillars is about wellness and never has there been a time like this where wellness has been so critical. We are proud to support the RISEx initiative founded by Chris Hanley, Director of First National Byron Bay.

The first RISE conference was held in Christchurch after the tragic shooting where 51 innocent people were killed. At the time RISE was described as a feeling, a coming together, a conference unlike anything else and it was something that should be continued.
A decision was made by the RISE Collective that a focus on mental health was important and investment was made into an APP – REALcare – for agents and their families. Little did they know at the time how critical this decision was going to be given the impact and toll COVID-19 has had on people.
RISEx this year is being held on the 6th of October; it is a virtual event which will see the launch of the REALcare APP.

I have downloaded the APP, it addresses some of the major stressors like financial heath, understanding how to manage stress, what self-care looks like and most importantly rapid response for crisis intervention.
This is a first for our industry, something we all need to get behind and support and the best way you can do this is to buy a ticket to RISEx and have your people download the APP.
Congratulations to the RISE collective who in the middle of a pandemic have built this app, a first step towards helping people who are going through difficult times.
As leaders this conference and APP is a significant step in showing our people that we care for them.
You will hear from me on a regular basis, sharing with your information and data that I know you will find valuable.
Feel free to reach out at any time until next time stay connected, stay safe.
