Prospect offers REAL training through online modules, webinars and live events. To gain access to these materials, visit http://www.LearnWithProspect.com.
"We have produced successful real estate agent training events for years, but their reach has been limited to physical location," said Prospect Chief Marketing Officer Matthew Tully. "We moved our real estate education platform online this year so that any agent nationwide can take advantage of our free training content, webinars and live events through Prospect's 2012 REAL program."
Before Prospect moved its real estate education platform to the web, the Company surveyed 150,000 real estate agents nationwide in January 2012 to determine their priority business learning needs, the types of mortgage loans most important to their business, and the agent's preferred channels for receiving the training content.
"Lead generation, buyer aggregation, marketing, selling and customer/database relationship management topped the survey for priority learning needs," Tully said. "Renovation lending and financing for FHA, REO and short sales were top loan programs that agents want to know about. When it came to accessing the content, survey responders indicated that website content, email content and live webinars were the preferred access channels for agents, but also said that live events are still important to them."
Since rolling out last month, Prospect's REAL program has attracted 1,600 registered users. More than 600 real estate agents attended Prospect's first live webinar on lead generation held February 22. A recording of the event is available online, in addition to six new training modules. Registration is free and available to all. Go to http://www.LearnWithProspect.com to register and access all training content.
