Full course description
This course is designed to educate and prepare real estate professionals how to establish a brokerage from the ground up. Since operating a brokerage is more than just real estate sales, we cover topics related to locating and designing your office, operating within the laws and guidelines of government agencies, and marketing and managing your business in order to achieve a successful income stream. The course also addresses the skills necessary to manage employees and equip sponsored sales agents to maximize production and income.
We will cover all of the topics required by the Texas Real Estate Commission to meet the 30-hour prerequisite Broker Course for taking the Broker exam. A complete list of education requirements to become a real estate broker is available on TREC's website at https://www.trec.texas.gov/become-licensed/individual-real-estate-broker
The content is organized in an easy to follow format, supported by scenario exercises to reinforce understanding of the subject matter presented in the course. Scenario exercises include completing business planning templates for use in real world financial, marketing, and business planning models.
