Editor’s note: This class was initially held in July and due to its overwhelming success, is being offered again.
Training and education are core offerings at eXp Realty® and eXp Commercial® is adding to the goodness by offering several opportunities for all agents — whether you’re with eXp Realty or not — to take part in commercial real estate training during the week of Dec. 6-10.
Free, 3-Day Course to Get Trained and Certified in Commercial Real Estate
The training program, “An Introduction to Commercial Real Estate,” is a full, three-day program being held Dec. 6-8 and will be facilitated by Michael Simpson of the National Commercial Real Estate Association (NCREA). It’s free and will be held virtually in the eXp Commercial Campus (download directions here).
“There has always been a lack of education and training when it comes to commercial real estate,” said Stephanie Gilezan, Director of eXp Commercial Brokerage Operations. “Pre-licensing and continuing education barely touch on commercial real estate. With the lack of training, it has always been difficult for commercial agents and brokers to be successful in the commercial real estate space. At eXp Commercial, we want to put education and training at the forefront so all licensees have the training necessary to know the business but to also be successful in their commercial real estate career.”

Getting insight and training into commercial real estate is not easily accessible and it can be costly. This 3-day course is estimated to be valued at $600, but eXp Commercial is offering it for free. eXp is committed to educating all agents in residential real estate, as well as commercial. This class is ideal for residential real estate agents who want to learn more about commercial real estate and add another tool to their arsenal. Don’t miss this free opportunity!
