Module 2 will deal with business development. On the first day you will learn about REALTORS® Property Resource (RPR) and general market knowledge. For days 2 and 3 we have scheduled a presentation by our NAR Designation Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) which new to this year’s GRI training.
Module 3 will discuss GREEN and environmental issues. The first two days will consist of NAR’s GREEN designation course, while on day 3 you will hear from environmental professionals in our industry. They will explain how to understand, present and deliver to your clients the reports you receive.
Module 4 deals with technology in the real estate industry. Over these 3 days you will learn about the technology used in the industry, from data security to using technology properly. You will learn how to stay in compliance with the laws as well as the right way to photograph and make videos of your listings.
