Upcoming events:  

  • Pricing and Presenting in a Virtual WorldThursday, June 4  |  at 2pm ET / 11:00am PT

Our June Virtual Education Expo kicks off a brand new series, Running a Virtual Real Estate Business from A – Z. Over the last few months, agents have had to shift the way they do business, and we believe the ability to serve customers virtually will benefit them throughout their entire real estate careers. 

On Thursday, June 4 at 2pm ET we will dive into Pricing and Presenting in a Virtual World. We are pleased to be joined by Patrick R. O’Connor and Deb Paton-Showley, two incredible Coldwell Banker agents who have refused to let a pandemic slow down their business. Patrick and Deb will share what they are doing to grow their business virtually and how other agents can apply similar strategies to do the same. There will also be time for live Q&A to answer questions from attendees.
