Developing good communication skills, learning to negotiate, and being prepared to work long days both in and out of an agency office are just some of the abilities that people assume they need in order to become a real estate agent. Of course, all of this would come after initial training and certification. After that, there would be continuing meetings and training at the agency to build agent skills and relationships. However, with the technological advancements available today, a revolution is building in the way agents are trained and operate, a revolution being led by eXp World Holdings (OTCQB: EXPI).
Not only has the number of remote workers grown by 103% since 2005, but, according to Global Workforce Analytics, “3.7 million employees (2.8% of the workforce) now work from home at least half the time”. In the real estate industry, eXp World Holdings has led this new wave, using advanced technologies to support the remote worker revolution and changing people’s perceptions of what a real estate agent does on a day-to-day basis. eXp Realty is an agent-owned cloud brokerage that provides its agents with 24/7 access to a variety of online tools and training programs in order to help them to continue to grow. EXPI’s management team saw a gap in the market which encouraged them to replace the expense of brick and mortar offices with a cloud-based environment while growing and maintaining strong relationships with its agents.
EXPI has made real estate career training accessible for free to all its agents through the Expressway system, a learning management platform that provides a flexible option to agents, allowing them to continually improve and advance their eXp Realty businesses. There are a range of free courses from which to choose, including how to build their own real estate teams, how to find and convert customers, creating and using websites, and others. Expressway also offers State Compliance Courses for each U.S. state, as well as Alberta, Canada.
