Finally! A Comprehensive Training System for Real Estate Assistants Like You — With Tools You Can Use Every Day to Keep You at the Forefront of the Industry
The Professional Real Estate Assistant
It’s time to reach your greatest potential and biggest career and business goals and become the “Go-To Real Estate Assistant”.
Dear Real Estate Assistant or Soon-To-Be-One,
My name is Pam Ivey. I’m a co-founder of REVA Institute, and formerly of the International Real Estate Assistant Association. I’ve been working with the real estate industry since 2001 — I’ve been around the block. I searched high and low to find good training that would shorten our learning-curve but alas, there was little to be found. So, I learned through trial and error, all of the ways I could best support real estate professionals to ensure they’re top in their market (and in turn, be rewarded handsomely).
That’s why I’ve developed this full, comprehensive training program: The Professional Real Estate Assistant Certification Program. In it, you’ll learn what you need to know to knowledgeably and confidently support real estate professionals in using the latest systems and software in all major areas – everything from the basics to niche services that you can learn to help you better assist your agents and make you a “hot commodity” in the real estate industry.
Becoming a Successful Real Estate Assistant that Surpasses Your Goals and Desires IS Within Your Reach — The Struggle Part is 100% Optional
A knowledgeable and trained Real Estate Assistant is in hot demand. We have the courses that cover it all.
What Makes Us Different? How Will We Teach You How to
“Hit the Ground Running”?
There are certainly other programs available for Real Estate Assistants — but nothing like the Professional Real Estate Assistant Certification Program. We know. We’ve scoured the Web in our own pursuits to find applicable training for our own businesses…we couldn’t find it.
And, we’ve spent lots of money taking other programs too. They just didn’t cut it. They didn’t provide the hands-on, practical training we needed. Lots of theory, and mainly focused on the legalities and transaction end of things. But we all know, there’s SO much more to real estate than just the transactions. We really wanted to learn the most effective lead generation methods, how to produce a successful listing campaign from start to finish, and so on. So, we created it ourselves, after a combined total of over 20 years in the business.
This program provides you with the PRACTICAL information and HANDS-ON training you need to immediately apply to working with real estate professionals. To be able to pick up the ball and run with it.
Certification Program Learning Objectives:
To provide the student with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to effectively support real estate professionals by providing comprehensive theory and practical hands-on experience in our modules and accompanying audio training series, templates, forms and guides.
