For Sale: Building a Successful Realtor Education Program

Description

Realtors are untapped partners when it comes to historic preservation. They know when historic properties are changing hands and understand the real estate trends in your community. This session will discuss how to establish a successful continuing education program focused on realtors. With improved understanding of preservation topics, realtors will become advocates for preservation while better serving clients who consider buying or selling older houses. The session will provide lessons-learned from successful programs in Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia. The speakers will discuss what content to include in the training, defining the target audience (realtor-only or open to the public?); examples of agendas and other educational material; how to certify for continuing education credits; and how to work with the Real Estate Council.
