Workshop Description:

If you “gotta grind that won’t stop” and “a hustle that won’t quit,” then you shouldn’t miss this exciting workshop which will illuminate how real estate can be an avenue to generate wealth beyond the traditional idea of acting as a listing/selling agent. Our three-hour (3) intense session is designed for those individuals currently in real estate, e.g. brokers, mortgage brokers, business owners, other real estate professionals, and ANYONE who is looking to get a broader and more fulfilling understanding of the real estate industry. Moving beyond the basics of buying/selling/listing, topics include: utilizing social media to drive revenue; branding; unlocking multiple streams of income available through real estate; understanding the differences between residential and commercial brokerage; property management secrets; and real estate development.

If you are new to the business or already an established agent, this class will offer you detailed insight into long-term and short-term strategies that will drive your income beyond the basics.
