6 Easy Ways to Continue Your Education

The real estate market is ever-changing. Technology evolves, new generations of homebuyers emerge. Make sure your education remains a priority so you stay ahead of the game.

Learn the ins and outs of your MLS

It’s important to understand how to access and use the tools available to you. REcolorado offers live training webinars every Friday at noon, as well as training classes at our location or yours. Additionally, all webinars are recorded and added monthly to the Learning Center so you can watch them on demand.

Learn about and use your supplemental tools

REcolorado is more than your MLS, we’re your business partner. This means you can count on us to provide you affordable access to the latest and greatest industry tools. Many are included with your MLS subscription. For example, we recently introduced Remine, a new and innovative tool that enhances your ability to engage with buyers and sellers. We also recently introduced New Home Source Professional, which is your MLS companion for new construction information. You can access both of these new tools right now directly from the Subscriber Resources section of your REcolorado CONNECT dashboard. Go check them out now!

Join a local REALTOR® association

A REALTOR association is a great way to network and exchange ideas with like-minded people who’re also interested in taking their education to the next level. Find the local REALTOR association nearest you.

Join an industry trade group

For example, Women’s Council of REALTORS® is a group dedicated to advancing women as professionals and leaders in business, the industry, and the community. If you’re interested, visit www.WCR.org for more information on your local chapter.

Find a mentor

If you’re new to real estate, do some networking and find someone who has been at it a while. Many veteran agents are happy to provide dos, don’ts, tips and tricks. And it doesn’t just work one way. Often, the newbie agent teaches the veteran agent a few things along the way, too.

Budget time for some light reading

To do your job well, you’ll need to know the market. Keep up with your local news outlets or sign up for Google Alerts. Additionally, subscribe to a few national industry publications (Inman and RISMedia are good places to start).
