Education is Key

Last month RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks held a training and education program for their associates.  This is an office-hosted program called the ‘Passport to Success’ training program and features 1-2 hour classes monthly on current real estate topics, challenges, and trends.

One specific topic focused on Camden County’s new mapping system.  The GIS Analyst for Camden Co., provided us with up-to date information on how to navigate and best utilize the new mapping system.  Education continued when both city planners for Osage Beach and Lake Ozark came to discuss new commercial activity.  Affiliates shared information in the lending and insurance industries.

The September 27th class, featured Wayne Fredrick, Regional Director of the RE/MAX Mid States Region and former owner and broker of RE/MAX Springfield.  Wayne has an extensive background in training and is instrumental in helping agents adapt to the changes in our current market.  (Over 40 RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks agents attended).

Other topics included negotiating for today’s buyers and sellers; how to help sellers sell for the most money in the shortest time, and communicating in today’s market.

It was a tremendous class and our team came away very excited about what we learned and how we could use the ideas to help our clients.  We are very fortunate to be associated with a company that cares enough to continue to increase the support and training needed to keep us on top of the market.

Our team takes advantage of all opportunities to educate ourselves on today’s changing markets.  We are up over 20% in team production over 2010 and attribute our growth to the ability to adapt and change to the demands of the market.  When choosing a Realtor to represent your property and the Lake make sure education is a key component in their business plan.  If you have any questions about your Lake property or would like an expert opinion- feel free to contact our office at 573-302-2355 for a free consultation.
