100 Days to Greatness: real estate boot camp
Regardless of the reason that a newly licensed agent joins a RE/MAX brokerage, some brokerages encourage, or even require, the new agent to complete the 100 Days to Greatness program. This proven program is also used by agents coming from other brokerages who want to follow a specific strategy to ensure their performance is of RE/MAX caliber. Even some existing RE/MAX agents go through the program to refocus their efforts on growing their business.
Designed for RE/MAX, 100 Days to Greatness is an intensive training program that taps the resources of one of the most successful and highly regarded coaches in the industry: Brian Buffini. No travel is required.
A real estate career can be particularly attractive to military spouses and family members. The educational and licensing period is reasonable, and military transfers can actually enhance referral opportunities. Military spouses and family members also tend to thrive in real estate due to a close-knit military community, the tendency toward systemizing tasks and the number of social activities associated with military life. But few people can walk into a real estate career without training and support. That’s why RE/MAX began the Operation RE/MAX program. Brokerages who participate in the program offer new agents the continuing postlicensing training and support they need to begin a real estate career within the military community. For details, write to email@example.com or visit the military.com Military Spouse Career Center and click on RE/MAX. Existing RE/MAX Broker/Owner and Managers can learn about registration by visiting contacting RE/MAX At The Slope for more information.
The usual first step: Get a license
In most states and provinces, a minimum requirement to joining a real estate brokerage as a sales agent is to have already earned a real estate license. In some states, however, a new agent needs to obtain a sponsoring brokerage prior to pursuing a license. Licensing requirements typically involve coursework and passing a state test (Most states also require that you be a high-school graduate or hold an equivalency diploma). You can check with your state or province to find the names of licensing schools near you. Some states also require post-licensing coursework immediately after you earn your license; and most states require continuing education throughout your career to keep your license active.
RE/MAX agents in the United States and Canada are required to be members of their brokerage's local real estate board and complete certification training and contract-completion training, and perhaps additional training through that board.
How to find a school
