Fast start business planning program

Here's the classes you get:

  • Performing a SWOT analysis
  • Refining Your Mission
  • Tracking Your Conversions
  • Setting Effective Goals

The fast start business planning program is the foundation of a successful real estate career. This program has been taught by your instructor in 46 States and five countries as a required course to achieve the CRS designation. Over 10,000 CRS real estate professionals have taken this course by Jerry Royse who was the number one ranked instructor in delivering this program internationally. Those students shared their top producer secrets and many of those students upon participating in this class said they wished they had received the information at the beginning of their career because the training should have been mandatory to put them on the right track.

Now, you can not only take advantage of the program with the excellent resources to write an actionable business plan. You have the additional benefit of being able to revisit the class with videos, forms, and other documents to brush up your business plan and refine it. An optional Zoom class is available to answer specific questions.

Video explanations of key real estate documents used by licensees

Video explanations of key real estate documents used by licensees is a tremendous resource to understand how to explain and use these forms with your client. We created videos of important MLS forms used by real estate professionals including purchase and sale agreements and personal services agreements like buyer broker agreements and listing agreements. The video narratives of the MLS forms reveal practical insights from my 35 years as a broker, 1200 transactions and over 30 expert witness cases, guaranteed to help you reduce your risk and learn how to make more money without reinventing the wheel.

These current forms are being added to address changes as they occur, to ensure you understand the significance of any modifications. You will be informed when new revisions happen, so you stay current.

We have compared all the competition and this by far exceeds any other options that are out there. Additionally, it is done by an independent company designed to leave nothing uncovered so that you get the best-in-class experience that supports your success, not your competitors.
