There is no one-size-fits-all solution for the unusual circumstances that occur in a real estate professional’s day-to-day business.

This course is formatted uniquely to answer agents’ specific “how do I?” questions and to provide insight on creative ways to use the features covered in the Realist 101 class. Instruction is also provided to help agents use Realist data to promote their businesses and to stay abreast of market trends in a particular area, such as number or percentage of Foreclosures, current active listings, recently sold properties, pending sales and more.
