Is Your Broker Offering You “Hand-me-down” Training?

Posted by under Real Estate News

Recently, I caught up with Top Agent and Social Media “Niva”, Virginia Munden, of RE/MAX Aboutowne Realty in Oakville, Ontario, Canada and we discussed some of the things that she feels brokers are doing right … and some of the things they are doing Absolutely Wrong.

One of Virgina’s complaints is that there is a focus on a one size fits all training approach, which at best is dated and not relevant to today’s rapidly changing market conditions.

Add to the mix many brokers don’t understand or care to understand the need and impact of Social Media Marketing … then what you get is in essence a system of “hand-me-down” trainings consisting of outdated materials but in a new shiny wrapper.

Virginia Muden is all about building and nurturing relationships by leveraging Social Media Marketing and does this masterfully via her branding and engagement on the various social media platforms like Facebook, twitter and her blog.
