The More You Learn, The More You Earn
At RE/MAX River City, we offer four levels of training for our REALTORS®:
- In house training
- REMAX University & online training
- Alliances with the best trainers and coaches in the business
In House Training
We offer regular in person training sessions twice per week at our training centre. Full calendar of upcoming topics can be found here: Training & Events Calendar
These sessions cover these general types:
- REMAX’s momentum materials – modules on the various skills you need to develop to be successful in this business. Developed through the cumulative experience of the tens of thousands of REMAX REALTORS in North America, delivered by our leadership team to put the local Edmonton interpretations on it.
- Workshops – From caravan style out of office sessions where we go see property, to tech workshops on social media advertising, going paperless, cloud based CMAs and more. Bring your laptop or tablet and walk out getting stuff done and learning at the same time!
- Panel Sessions – Typically with 2-3 REALTORS® who “walk the talk” on a subject, it’s a question and answer style format that allows you to learn from those who are getting results with techniques or strategies you can learn from.
- Guest Experts – We bring in outside experts like lenders, mortgage brokers, lawyers, inspectors and others from our Preferred Vendors list to present on various topics that impact your day to day client relationships. These sessions often bring you value you can take directly back to your clients individually or via newsletter or video style value added updates.
We have a structured mentorship program that facilitates matching up newer REALTORS® with those experienced and successful REALTORS® to learn one-on-one. The structured program provides a framework to ensure both parties stay on task with the key skills and tools every successful and productive agent needs to learn.
We provide the apprentice with a list of 3-5 names of potential mentors based on the true colours personality matching system. It’s a two-way interview, so we encourage every apprentice to reach out and setup an in person get together with the prospective mentors to find the best fit.
The program typically runs over a three month period, meeting weekly at minimum.
We host monthly sales meetings at the Old Strathcona REALTOR’S Loft to discuss current market conditions, industry and regulatory updates, group advertising opportunities, award our top 25 sales people from the prior month and more. These are also able to be attended online or via call in conference system.
