Our team is dedicated to the success of our participants.
It is not only a mission, but a passion that I bring Real Estate Closing Path to life this year. Almost a decade ago, I noticed this industry would be losing great leaders, that once built it, to retirement, different paths of life, or industry exits. I began to wonder how these industry pioneers were going to be replaced? Where was the training or recruitment for the positions that would help fill the empty desks? How will the real estate industry change with technology and innovative advancements? Here we are a decade later, and I am still questioning the same issues I saw when I began in this industry over 20 years ago.
As we are working harder than ever, our industry is overflowing with business, making it a true blessing to be a part of this community. I began to think about how I could uniquely contribute to a community that has given me so many opportunities and relationships with clients and colleagues throughout the years. I began to revisit the thought of constructing a team and training program that would help shape the future of the industry. Real Estate Closing Path was a vision that became a reality through the generosity of my team, sponsors, and community. As my passion still continues to grow for this industry, I have curated a training and recruiting program that focuses on the future leaders of the real estate industry.
Connie Bartlett, Vice President, was a huge contributor in helping me put my thoughts and dreams into action. On August 2nd, 2021, we launched our first class, training talented and dedicated participants. It is my hope that this training program will fill the voided parts this industry faces daily. Join us to become a part of this mission to rebuild a solid foundation in the real estate industry we all call home.
