Thousands of Texas Realtors Learn to Work
DALLAS, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – An effort to provide new home selling training to Texas realtors has already helped more than 4,000 real estate sales professionals statewide learn how to do better. working with home builders. HomesUSA Alliance, founded by real estate industry giants Ben Caballero and Bob Hafer, now enables hundreds of agents each year to become specialists in the sale of new homes while earning the education credits necessary to maintain a license. active real estate in Texas.
During the pandemic, the two-day immersive course offered by HomesUSA Alliance became available remotely through Zoom. According to co-founder Bob Hafer, its popularity has exploded as accessibility increased, with 1,100 agents who have now completed the two-day program or signed up for one-on-one classes.
The next 2-day course series, available through Zoom, is scheduled for January 19-20, 2022 and open to agents in Texas and nationwide. Registration is done through the HomesUSAAlliance.com website on its Calendar page (https://homesusaalliance.com/education/course-calendar).
Hafer, who created and teaches the courses, notes that the number of officers he can teach nearly doubled during the pandemic because previously in-person course attendance was required. Additionally, class locations were limited to Dallas, Fort. Worth and Austin, Texas. Now the program is available to agents nationwide.
“Working with builders gives agents a new way to quickly grow their business. Ben became America’s # 1 ranked real estate agent by becoming a specialist in the sale of new homes, ”said Hafer,“ and I have spent my life in the homebuilding business. We created HomesUSA Alliance knowing, through their personal experience, that builders and real estate agents can greatly benefit from a closer working relationship.
The Alliance provides agents with a comprehensive source of information on new residences that gives them a better insight into how the construction industry works.
“Agents often misunderstand why builders do what they do, and so do builders when it comes to why agents do what they do,” said Ben Caballero, co -Founder of the Alliance, Founder and CEO of HomesUSA.com, and two-time Guinness World Record holder. “Through targeted education, we are helping to bridge this knowledge gap,” Caballero explained.
Since the courses are approved for continuing education (CE) credits by the Texas Real Estate Commission, agents can earn 11 credits out of six courses during the two-day program. At the affordable price of $ 200, once agents complete the six (6) continuing education courses, they can also earn their New Home Selling Certification from HomesUSA Alliance.
“The Texas Real Estate Commission requires agents to take 18 hours of approved continuing education credit every two years,” Hafer notes, “and the Alliance course covers about two-thirds of your two-year requirement in just two days.”
“But the biggest benefit offered by the courses, based on the testimonials of officers who have completed the program, is not the CE credit, but the fact that they get information on how to work with builders and to sell new homes that are not available anywhere else, ”explains Caballero.
“Niches create wealth in real estate is an old saying, but perhaps truer today than ever,” Caballero said. “The point is, there are over 220,000 agents in Texas, and the vast majority never show a buyer a new home. Yet we know that nationally, over 80 percent of all real estate sales involve an agent. So, we teach realtors to specialize in a big business niche – how to work with builders and sell new homes. Agents who take this training will create a competitive advantage for themselves in the marketplace and be able to better serve their clients, ”he added.
There are six bi-monthly two-day courses, and they can be taken all at the same time or individually. The course titles are “Building Your Real Estate Business Through Selling New Homes”, “Everything You Need to Know About New Home Building”, “How to Negotiate Successfully with a New Home Builder”, “Understanding new home builders’ contracts and endorsements ”; and“ Reading new home construction plans for realtors ”and“ How to recognize a new ecologically built home ”.
