Successful brokers and owners are constantly searching for ways to keep their agents sharp, up-to-date, and ultimately, profitable. If that describes you, then search no further: RPR provides easy, cost-effective ways to train your agents.
RPR, a member benefit of NAR, provides agents with data, tools and reports to help them “wow” their clients and close more deals. However, RPR also provides access to high quality learning opportunities for its users at no cost whatsoever.
As a broker, you can leverage a wide selection of videos, webinars and guides for:
New agent orientation meetings
Fostering and furthering professional development
Office “refresher” courses on building CMAs, new client prospecting, mailing labels, etc.
A remote, work from home way to sharpen and learn new skills
On-demand video series: “The Basics & Beyond”
The perfect place to start with agent training is RPR’s “Basics and Beyond” Learning Series. This collection of brief videos offers a high level overview of all the features, tools and capabilities that RPR offers to REALTORS®. Play the whole series at office meetings, during new member on-boarding, or offer it as “homework” to seasoned agents, who can easily watch them remotely from their phone or computer.
This video series is a great way to see how the site looks, feels and functions. It’s basically the ground floor on how much RPR has to offer and why it’s in your agents’ best interest to tap into all of the property data available to them. They’ll learn the basics of creating their accounts and executing property searches, to more intermediate features such as map searches and creating property reports.
Each video in the “Basics & Beyond” Series also features an accompanying Printable Guide. These handy “cheat sheets” give you everything covered in the video, in a step-by-step, easy to follow handout. No need to take notes—just watch the video and refer to the guide.
Another solid resource is RPR’s Learning Center. Here agents can sign up for live, national webinars from a wide range of topics. This page also features on-demand learning videos, Printable Guides and downloadable eBooks. Agents can simply use the navigation checkboxes on the left to choose educational offerings based on time, skill level, topics and learning type.
Learning to use RPR isn’t just for agents! With RPR’s Broker Tools, brokerages can sign up and receive access to a slew of business-building tools and features.
