Ongoing Education Holds the Key to Agent Success
Category - Real Estate Information Sources - Real Estate Articles

Unquestionably, there are too many licensed real estate agents and the barriers to entry are unacceptably low. Pre-license education is largely designed to prepare agents to pass the state licensing exam - so what happens then? The average new licensee is not fully equipped with the necessary skills to properly serve today's real estate consumer.

Online has increasingly become a medium of choice in helping agents acquire the additional skills they need to become quality, successful, real estate professionals. After 12 years in the business, RealtyU® has grown to become the largest real estate education group in the country, with a network of 34 schools. In addition, the Company is the owner of a number of leading real estate courses, the manager of numerous real estate Councils, a provider of online mentoring services and is the largest provider of online real estate courses in the country. These courses fall into a wide range of categories: CE, Selling Skills, Designations, and key subjects such as productivity, negotiations and many more.

Although the majority of agents still enjoy attending a class with other agents, many are finding that attending one class a year is just not enough. They are finding online to be a quick, fast, and easy way to gain added knowledge and skills.

Launched over two years ago, RealtyU® Online today not only provides a large selection of its own real estate courses but is also the nation's largest aggregator of real estate courses. Agents looking to obtain their CE credits now have a comprehensive online library that will meet their needs 24/7. No need to wait for a class to become available or take time out of your day, which could be used for productive sales activities.

Also added in 2006 were 40 skills-based refresher courses that specifically focus on real estate agent productivity. According to Thomas Mitchell, Chief Operating Officer of RealtyU® Online, "Agents of all experience levels are taking away valuable information, which they are employing and seeing positive results in their productivity." The subjects offered include: Listing Types - Income Farming - Cold Calling - Prospecting - Personal Profile Marketing - Buyer & Seller Orientation Seminars - Getting the Appointment - Pre-listing - Qualifying Buyers - Building Relationships - Personality Types - Getting Offers - Presenting & Negotiating.

So whether you're looking for Licensing courses, CE credits, a sought-after designation, or have a need to improve one of your real estate skills, they are now all available online at the RealtyU® Online web site, the leader in career development for real estate professionals.
