Practical Brokerage Practices
This course brings together many of the most important aspects of a real estate broker business.

With an easy-to read manual, your staff and associates will know what’s expected of them. This course will explain how to write, produce, and distribute your company’s roadmap to success. Your manual should encompass all of the basics: a mission statement, personnel policies, and general procedures such as office attire, sales meetings, office conduct, terminations, and vacations. It is also important to include policies and procedures specific to real estate.
