What to Know When Hosting a Virtual Real Estate Training

With many aspects of your business moving online in the past year, you may have recruited agents who live an hour away or you may not be getting face-to-face with your real estate team as much as you would like. Still, real estate training for your new recruits and seasoned agents is something that does not need to change as your business evolves. With online real estate agent training, you’ll be able to keep your team motivated and inspired!

If you’re a real estate broker, owner or manager looking to host a successful virtual training for your office, here are some tips you’ll want to know.

Create a Calendar Event

Send a calendar invitation to participants for the day of the class. This way they can block off time to be fully present, even if they aren’t physically there with you.

Send Reminders for Agents to Tune in

It’s all too easy to forget meetings and calls when you’re working from home. Make sure you send reminders via text or email so agents know the training is still happening. Include clear instructions on how to access each training module and the expectations for that session.

Host Virtual One-on-One Meetings

Make sure your agents know that you are also invested in their success. Schedule a regular call or video chat for 10-15 minutes to see how your students are doing. Offer guidance, resources and tools to keep them focused on their goals!

Leverage Facebook Groups

Create a Facebook group for your class and encourage them to engage there. They can share articles, questions or ideas regarding the program. This shared space is a great way to help agents feel connected and get more out of the training.

Encourage Accountability

This is especially important when you’re dealing with a remote office. Avoid letting participants’ fall off with their goals or performance during the program. Make sure you’re still holding their feet to the fire by requiring each student to seek an accountability partner they check in with regularly. This will dramatically increase their levels of success.
