August 25, 2008 // Franchising.com // RE/MAX University has just produced a video training program for its Sales Associates entitled Foreclosures, Short Sales and REO's. The course is now available on DVD and provides practical strategies designed specifically for success in today's real estate market. By utilizing the techniques presented in Foreclosures, Short Sales and REO's, Sales Associates will learn how they can be productive no matter what type of market they're facing.
The four hour comprehensive course is taught by Nancy Freeman, a 28 year RE/MAX veteran, who is licensed to teach continuing education and Graduate Realtor® Institute classes. "Once an agent takes this course, they will never fear a down market again. Their career will be recession-proof," said Freeman. "Most agents are successful in a good market, but if they learn how to make sales in this kind of market, they will always be successful."
Foreclosures, Short Sales and REO's teaches Sales Associates how to master the entire foreclosure process; How to market themselves to lenders, identify prospective clients, market REO properties, and provide Broker Price Opinions (BPO's). In addition, Nancy Freeman is available to course graduates for personal guidance over the phone.
Sales Associates who have completed the course are already reporting success. "The course is excellent. It provides you with everything you need right down to the language of the letters to send. I am now doing several BPO's and working for a few REO, asset management companies." Curtis Griffin, RE/MAX Capital, Williamsburg, VA.
"It's the most exciting work, to help your fellow man. It's a great reward. If I can save just one person from foreclosure, that's something to celebrate." Moneta Sizemore, RE/MAX First, Maryville, TN.
