Irvine, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
Long known for its deep commitment to training and development for its real estate agents and professionals, First Team Real Estate just announced that it has surpassed a major milestone in its 38-year history by training over 7,500 individual real estate agents.
"Real Estate is and has been a major economic driver for California's economy," said Rick Brotherton, Vice President, Marketing for First Team Real Estate. "Since our start in 1976, we have made training and agent development central to what we do because we know what a huge impact agents can have on families and in their communities."
Following an industry leading strategy of training and then supporting agents from their initial steps towards licensure through peer-to-peer mentoring and continual updates on transactional and legal issues, and every requirement to build a successful career, First Team Real Estate at any given time has 1,400 of its agents enrolled in training.
"Our focus is to help buyers and sellers make the most informed decisions about real estate," explained Brotherton. "Every member of our team takes that very seriously and that is why we have so many of our agents and professionals involved in training and development."
With sessions led by many of First Team's senior leaders, including founder and owner Cameron Merage, First Team agents can choose many options to fit training and development into their busy schedules, from 24/7 online coursework, to remote learning opportunities at their regional office, to in-person training at the nationally known Success Academy.
"While First Team is known for training new agents, mid-career agents are often highly surprised by the amount of support and skill development they can experience at First Team," said Rick Brotherton. "As the real estate market continues its long term growth, buyers and sellers need to have agents who are at the top of their field and that is our goal in developing agents."
