Back in 2003/2004, the real estate market was escalating, going up like a rocket. At the time it seemed there was no end in sight to the growth in the market, yet by 2006, the signs of a slowdown began appearing. By 2008 the economy had crashed in a dramatic stock market collapse that was linked to the real estate bubble. After the crash and the recession that followed, it looked for awhile as if real estate would never come back. Seven years later, however, we’re looking at a whole different landscape, as real estate is again a desirable profession.
Today there are many new realtors entering the market and what’s clear is that these new professionals need something more than just training, they need coaching. Coaching is now being shown to have a real impact on the success rate of new realtors, which is why many major firms are now hiring top coaching companies to work with new realtors.
The New Approach to Training
Coaching firms have a new approach to training realtors and it involves getting people together in groups on a regular basis to go over information and to share ideas. The usual recommendation is to put coaching group members into groups of twelve and have them meet at least once a week.
Members will also be paired up with a partner and the pair will communicate and be accountable to each other. Every group member will have a prospecting schedule and they will need to check in with their partner about their progress in going through a regular checklist.
In the course of this, the group members will also have plenty of opportunities for sharing ideas and ultimately bonding. All of this has a big impact on the success rate of the realtors in their business and that success has a lasting effect. It’s been found that those who go through this kind of training do better, and tend to stay in the profession. That’s a win-win result for everyone, obviously.
