Being a successful real estate agent means staying on top of important industry trends, requirements, and technologies. While some real estate continuing education requirements vary by state, some processes and procedures are universal.
Your brokerage is a good resource for continuing education information. But there are many other places where you can access free and paid continuing education classes, workshops, webinars, whitepapers, and other educational content.
All this information may help you meet mandated continuing education requirements to maintain your license and can equip you with the knowledge that will increase sales.
To help, we’ve compiled a summary of several helpful resources for when you’re seeking continuing education information. These are just a few of the hundreds or thousands of online resources you can use to improve your sales skills to achieve significant results. But you can start with these resources.
