Working in Teams (IL)


Real estate teams have become a popular way for top producers to serve numerous clients at once. However, the decision to build a team raises a number of issues that must be considered carefully, such as how to legally structure a real estate business, what should be included in the business plan, how to recruit the best candidates, and what types of office policies need to be developed to standardize operational tasks. This course helps Illinois agents understand how to assemble the right combination of team members to create a successful real estate practice.
