Whether you’re new to real estate or an experienced agent, taking classes to learn about the brokerage, the industry and how to build a successful sales business is the key to any real estate agents’ success. That’s why eXp Realty, whose motto is agent success obsessed, has made a huge commitment to offer classes to its agents, for free.
eXp’s classes are all free, taught live in eXp World and online. Not only is it convenient, but if you miss a class, it’s recorded and can be found in eXp University’s ever-growing on-demand library.
eXp Realty has an awesome education staff, including Brad Andersohn, who was the creator of Zillow Academy and the co-creator of ActiveRain, a large agent blogging platform. I have personally learned so much from this man. So it’s really an honor to have him here at eXp Realty with us.
The “Working The Magic” technology team hosts several training classes every week. They cover the latest industry tools and apps and also invite experts from KVCore (the free lead generation websites eXp offers our agents) to answer any questions, offer tips, and help you become a successful lead generator.
In addition to the regular staff, eXp’s ICON Agents regularly volunteer to share their best practices. This gives eXp agents an opporutnity to learn from the top agents all around the world. Over the last few years, so many different national coaches and trainers have joined eXp Realty and they also jump in and teach classes on a regular basis.
Many of the live eXp Realty training classes are recorded and have been invaluable to the eXp agents. If you’re a busy agent, you’re running around and you’re showing houses, attending closings, and you may not be able to be there for a class you were so excited to attend.
At my previous brokerage, there would be so many classes I missed because I just couldn’t get to the office on time. Now I can pull up the recordings on our eXp Expressway and listen to them anytime — even when you are driving to all your client meetings!
Our technology team creates a lot of short “how-to” training videos. It’s a huge plus, because many times, you attend a training class, get excited about what you learned, and by the time you get around to trying it out, you’ve forgotten 70% of what you learned. For example, when creating Facebook ads all I have to do is pull up one of their videos and watch the step-by-step ‘how-to’ video. Being able to go back and access these recordings can make a BIG impact on your business.
When you come to eXp Realty, we have an online or virtual world, so you can walk in with your customized avatar and attend classes from the comfort of your home office or anywhere you have internet access.
There are guest speakers from around the country, national coaches and trainers, group workshops, and masterminds. It is an incredible experience, as you may have a top producing agent from Boston teaching a class one hour and Austin the next. The amazing thing we’ve noticed is that the agent or coach who’s teaching the class isn’t trying to hold back their secret recipe because they’re presenting to competing agents in their local market. They tell you exactly what they’re doing to succeed and that’s been a tremendous benefit for many real estate agents here at eXp Realty.
In order to get into the virtual office, you just log in eXp World from your computer. There is also a mobile app that allows you to access the World from your phone, so you can listen and participate in classes while you’re in the car or sitting in a coffee shop.
