“I learned how I need to change the way I describe my compensation to the buyer and the changes that are coming to our profession. Also, I need to do a better job on consultations pre-house hunting.”

“I learned so many new ways to be an even better representative for buyers, which in turn helps serving on the listing side. Fantastic class! So much was learned: how to have a better buyer interview process, telling them to talk with home insurance agent asap!, not being afraid to ask more questions, the importance of buyer broker agreement for both sides, and the changes coming in compensation — wow!”
