    Negotiation Skills for REALTORS® *4CE

    August 29 - 12pm - 4pm

    Just imagine a Realtor® is in a situation where they want one thing, and their counterpart wants another. What to do? Challenge them to a duel? Although dueling days are past (whew!), there is a way to find a solution – and that is through negotiation. This course examines the art of negotiation and what it can mean for a real estate professional when practiced correctly. It will help Realtors® determine what negotiation is and how they can use it to find a solution.

    In learning that negotiating is finding a suitable compromise while keeping the focus on what each party needs to get out of the situation, students will understand that negotiation is a valuable skill that can assist them in and out of work situations. Realtors® will learn about themselves to best understand how to negotiate with their clients. Best of all, it can help them earn more money and get the results they desire.

    Objectives: By the end of this course the student should be able to: Provide an environment where the parties involved are aware of each others' needs and are willing to work together, bring to a conclusion a negotiation where each participant leaves satisfied with results, explain merit based negotiation and how beginning with a desired outcome improves the well-being of all participant, list the five power positions and how each can be used in a specific negotiation to achieve the desired outcome, and demonstrate six negotiating tactics that benefit the parties to the negotiation.

    How Hurricanes Affect the Mortgage Lending Process *3CE

    September 17, 2019 - 9am - 12pm

    The objective of the class is to assist the Realtor in getting their business back on track in a timely fashion and help prevent fallout from their well-deserved pipeline of business following major weather events.

    There is nothing that throws a wrench into a Realtors pipeline of closings quite like a hurricane. Recent storms such as Hurricane Irma in 2017 and Hurricane Michael in 2018 have reshaped many Realtors businesses.   In some case, these storms have eliminated the Realtors business completely. These storms can virtually shut down 100% of all real estate activity in the area.  As a result, the Realtors income, career, and financial support system is sometimes at complete risk.  Nobody can avoid these catastrophic weather events; however, what Realtors can do is be prepared to get their business back up and running immediately after the storm passes.  Realtors can expedite this process by knowing how Mortgage Lenders operate before and after these weather events.  This knowledge will be extremely beneficial to the Realtor and their clients.
