Self Starter, Self Motivated And Tech Savvy
SOUND LIKE YOU, OR NOT?
ALISO VIEJO, CA., Sept. 21, 2005 - During a recent interview, Tom Mitchell, the COO of RealtyU® – the largest network of real estate schools in America – was asked to describe the profile of a successful real estate agent who studied online. He responded by saying that “The online candidate is usually an agent who is self-motivated, a good manager of time, focused, technology savvy and someone who knows where he or she wants to go.” He also added that “The ideal candidate for online learning is also someone who is a self starter and does not require supervision.” Live classroom real estate education and training has typically been more ideal for those agents who enjoy interaction with fellow agents and discussion with the instructor. Classroom instruction is also great for getting immediate answers and more detailed explanation is generally provided online. “
With over 305,000 agents trained offline and 30,000 online in 2004, RealtyU® definitely understands the educational needs and desires of real estate agents and their career development. RealtyU® recently expanded their online education portal (www.realtyUonline.com), which now offers access to over 1,900 online course offerings from the courseware of most of the nation’s leading course providers: Dearborn/Kaplan, Thomson/CompuTaught, REALTORS® University and The Real Estate Professionals Society.
Mitchell was asked why RealtyU® had chosen these particular course providers, he said "they represent the best quality education and courseware in the country and up until the launch of our RealtyU® online portal, 90% if not more of the online education websites only delivered courses from one provider. You have to remember that agents looking for a course online are very similar to a consumers looking for a listing - they really don’t really care which agent listed the house, they just want the house. Likewise, agents are looking for the right course and generally don’t really care who the actual course provider is.”
" As a result, RealtyU® Online has become the portal for all the real estate educational course providers so that the real estate industry has one place for one-one-stop education shopping. A place where they have a multitude of real estate education courses available,” he added. To plan the next step in your career development visit http//:www.realtyuonline.com today.
