Brokers: 3 Types of Non-CE Training that Can Benefit Your Agents and Your Business
Giving agents access to quality training resources can boost your firm’s retention, culture, and profitability. But continuing education courses are not the only option to keep your agents engaged and informed.
Access to Real Estate Coaches
For new agents and agents looking to achieve greater success, knowing when to seek a coach or how to compare their services and costs may be daunting. Keeping a roster of well-regarded coaches can make it easier for agents to access support. And if you know coaches whose philosophy meshes well with your business model, offering to defray some of the coaching cost might benefit the brokerage as well as the agent.
Vetted YouTube Channels
The thought of agents searching YouTube for answers to real estate questions might scare you, but title companies, real estate attorneys, and other brokerages publish quality training videos. If you find channels regularly producing useful content, they can be an ongoing resource for agents.
