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.
Why is that such a big deal? Because at many traditional big-box brokerages, basic, in-office classes are offered, but specialty classes and advanced training usually costs money. Add in travel expenses and you’re looking at a few hundred dollars or more per class.
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.
“One of eXp’s core values is collaboration,” said Judy Slack, eXp University Content Director. “It’s in the best interest of everyone at eXp to have today’s top agents help each other. eXp provides a unique process to help agents share their knowledge, expertise and best practices with each other through the University. The spirit of ‘giving back’ is so strong that I regularly get goosebumps at the quality of training offered for free.”
Each Week, 50 Live Classes Are Scheduled
eXp University offers about 50 live classes a week, taught by industry experts and top-producing eXp agents. During each class, a survey is deployed, asking attendees to rate the instructor and content. Currently, instructors average a survey score of 4.89 out of 5. Most classes are recorded and accessible in eXp University’s on-demand library.
General topics include:
- Working with buyers and sellers
- Lead generation and conversion
- Social media marketing
