I completed Real Estate School and received my license in March 2018. Although they teach you the basic rules and law of real estate transactions, they don’t provide any real guidance on what to do once you get your license. I knew in order to succeed I needed to find an agency that offered more than just online podcasts for training and support from other experienced agents. A family friend referred me to two agencies, one of which was DPR. After talking to Mari over the phone and watching the introduction video for the Career Agent Academy, I knew right away the Career Agent Academy was where I needed to be.
I joined the Career Agent Division in April 2018. I just can’t say enough about all of the level of training and support you receive in the Academy. From the very beginning you are assigned a mentor to help you start your career on the right path. You receive one on one training on how to start up your business, preparing CMA’s, buyer and seller consultations, and even how to hold an open house. Who knew there were specific techniques to holding an open house? In addition to your one on one training, the Career Agent Division holds numerous classes throughout the month for all the agents in the Academy. Although the information in these classes is excellent, the comradery and friendships you develop with the other agents is invaluable. Hearing stories from other agents about not only their successes, but also their struggles really keeps you motivated.
From the very first time I met her, Mariesa was so warm and welcoming, she made me feel like part of the family as soon as I joined. She is full of energy, and full of motivation, but most of all, you can tell she truly does care about each agent as an individual. My mentor Brian was always there for me when I needed help with contracts or just had general questions. He never made me feel like I was bothering him when I called, no matter what time of the day it was. Although Mari isn’t a mentor, I don’t think any of us in the Academy could get through the day without her. She is helpful, positive, and has a wealth of knowledge. I know without a doubt that I would not have been as successful as a new agent without the training, guidance, and resources the Career Agent Academy offers. I recommend it to not only new agents starting out, but also to agents that are struggling in their careers that may need a little extra training and support to take their career to the next level.
