To become the best agent you can be, you’ll need to undergo certain types of training. Here’s a quick overview of what that might look like.
When real estate agents must undergo training, there are two types they need to seek out: compliance training and productivity training.
First, let’s discuss compliance training. Agents always need to be in compliance, meaning that you need to complete your ethics classes and continuing education courses.
After that, you’ll need to do productivity training. Working on a real estate team can really help boost your productivity. New agents need to learn the basics, such as how to use a CRM system like Boomtown or Command, follow-up systems, and scripts.
If you’re a seasoned agent, check if your brokerage offers advanced-level training, which is a little harder to pinpoint. Is there an agent on your team who produces more than you? If so, work with them as your mentor so you can improve your business practices.
No matter the kind, training is useless without accountability. Make sure that you’re working with a team or a system that holds you accountable for your goals. In addition, work toward holding yourself accountable; being able to do this without somebody else helping you is an invaluable skill.
