Currently working at a Real Estate Brokerage? Tired of the same training week after week designed for new Realtors®?
Learning how to send out documents for e-signing is a Day 1 Problem. Not a Year 5 Problem. Most brokerages keep repeating the same sessions over and over again which means Top Agents stop growing and hit ceilings. Because we record everything, we never repeat sessions. Because we never repeat sessions, we continue to deliver training that is useful and helps our Agents level up!
We Average 4 training sessions weekly comprised of:
1) Weekly Market Minute
2) Workshop - what most brokerages consider their 'actual training'
3) Mandatory Training - unique session each week
4) Scripting & Objection Handling with our Coaches every week!
Missed a session? No problem. We have built our own LearningSuite Platform. This is a NetFlix like experience for Real Estate. We've got 600+ videos in our Real Estate Streaming Suite (LearningSuite) so you can binge watch all things Real Estate on demand + RE/MAX University which features 1000s of videos!
This means you can learn 24/7 anywhere in the world - on demand.
Most Brokerages have it backwards. The Brokerage is in the BUSINESS of servicing its OWN Realtors® who then in-turn service the Buyers and Sellers that the Brokerage is contracted with. Our Realtors® are our Business Partners. And we're in the business of ensuring that our Team Members have what they need, when they need it so that they can provide an unparalleled service to the Clients that they deal with on a day-to-day basis.
We're in the Business of helping our Agents create a successful Business in Real Estate.

Real Estate - It isn't an easy Business
We Know Real Estate.
MOST BUSINESSES FAIL.
So do Most Real Estate Professionals.
According to the National Association of Realtors 87% of Agents fail in the first 5 years.
If the average consumer buys or sells once every 5-7 years, this means that MOST consumers are dealing with a failed Agent.
Heard about the infamous 80/20 rule?
The saying is that 80% of the Transactions in Real Estate are closed by 20% of Salespersons/Brokers. Why? Because based on the NAR statistic, only 20% of Agents are really good at what they do.
This means that of the 70,000+ Realtors® registered with TRREB, approximately 14,000 Realtors® end up closing most of the transactions. And then you have many Registrants who end up completing less than 2 transactions per year. And there's any number of reasons under the sun for this sort of production. But we firmly believe that is an accountability problem coupled with lack of training and development, and support in key areas of an Agents business which includes marketing, paperwork, coaching etc.
Most Brokers will tell Agents how to succeed but will not be able to provide actual turn-key solutions. As an example, a broker may say make flyers - easy to say - a lot less easier to do.
This is why we not only tell our agents how to succeed, we provide them with the elements so that they can plug away and go!
Most Agents we've talked to are either afraid of making mistakes, lack confidence, don't have the right tools to generate business, or simply lack the persistence required to succeed in Real Estate - which is why Coaches are making a lot of money especially recently.
The reality is, that with the right Brokerage, a full-time and successful career in Real Estate becomes a reality.
THE MARKETPLACE IS CHALLENGING.
BUT Entrepreneurs thrive in Markets like this one.
As a Brokerage, we hire New Registrants as well as Transfers from other Brokerages. Why are people transferring to our Brokerage? Because Leadership Matters - and our Brokerage is run by Leaders, Visionaries, and Entrepreneurs.
When markets turn and properties don't sell with tens of multiple offers, Sellers arguably become conservative and look for 2 things:
1) Experience; and
2) Reputable Brands
In tough markets when many non-producing Registrants are either thinking about leaving the business or "parking" their Licence, experienced and branded Realtors® arguably do even better.
This is because Consumer confidence diverts from "I can hire anyone or list my property for a flat fee because my property will sell itself" to "I need to hire the best and most experienced Realtor® backed by a recognised brand to protect my interests and ensure I get the most out of the Transaction".
We take pride in ensuring that our Realtors® have relevant and timely training designed to help them understand and deal with the dynamic marketplace, understand the entire transaction, the contracts, and the processes that lead to success.
Coupled with our hands-on approach, the ultra-premium services provided to our Agents, and being backed by the BEST of the BEST when it comes to brands, we're created an environment which fosters success - WE ARE RE/MAX!
Our Agents are prepared when Most Agents aren't.
REALTORS® LIKE SOLDIERS NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR THE MISSION AT HAND.
It's an ongoing battle in Real Estate requiring short-term and long-term vision.
At RE/MAX Metropolis Realty, we appreciate that if you aren't prepared for the uphill battle that a Real Estate career can be, you're more than likely setting yourself up for failure. And a big part of being prepared is having the right tools, Training and Development, Leadership, Team, and support in place to help you do what you're supposed to do - Sell Real Estate.
The trend today is to have Brokerages do less and less as the Brokerage Business (for most Brokerages) has become a numbers game. But we believe that a small team of highly skilled Registrants is more effective than 100 Registrants who don't know the difference between the Confirmation of Acceptance and the Acknowledgement in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
At RE/MAX Metropolis, Our Realtors® are our Business Partners. In fact, we're so confident in what we do that we've structured out comp plans around our Team's Success. If our Agents aren't making money, neither are we. We firmly believe that non-producing Agents are a product of bad leadership. Which is why Leadership Matters.
Like New Recruits who aspire to become decorated Veterans, Realtors® must to put in the work and commit to a regimented boot camp. And at RE/MAX Metropolis, we've brought in the best of the best to ensure that our Teams operate like members of the Special Forces. We provide the complete arsenal of training, development, strategy, and support required to foster success. And on top of what we provide, we're backed by the BEST of brands - RE/MAX.
