As a brokerage, we at Kimberly Howell Properties are tasked with training and mentoring our agents to teach them the skills and share with them the experiences that will help guide them throughout their career. With real estate changing constantly, this requires us to keep learning and growing ourselves. We’re quite proud of the work our agents put into learning and staying up to date and our training and mentoring program is something we’re very proud of. One of the pillars of our training program is Dave Taylor. Dave is a licensed agent and serves as our trainer and mentor to all of the agents. Awarded Trainer of the Year by Platinum Top 50 San Antonio, Dave also conducted training in the military, so he’s a natural at it. Dave’s focus is teaching agents the “why” of real estate, not just the “how” of fill in the blank contract forms. Our agents learn the theoretics of real estate and are constantly challenged by Dave to learn more.
In addition to our regularly scheduled training classes each week, agents have access to members of staff that are also licensed. With phone, email, and text, staff are available to agents throughout the day and night.
Training is conducted weekly and offers a mix of classes built on real life cases and experiences of our agents to bringing in experts in related fields like title insurance, lending, builders, foundation experts, etc. This allows us not only to train and mentor based on our own real life experiences, but also use the experiences of the experts in other fields.
How does our training and mentoring benefit you?
If you’re an agent looking for a new brokerage, the answer is pretty obvious. We provide you with the skills to grow your business and build the confidence that is one of the most important tools in your real estate tool belt. Want to come see how we do things? Schedule a meeting with us and join one of our weekly meeting or training sessions to see how we do things. We’re proud of our program and our agents love it – it’s not easy and you will be challenging, but you will know more and be prepared for more situations than a lot of other agents out there.
As a homebuyer or seller, the training benefits you clearly too. Better agents means better experiences for you. Real estate is constantly evolving and just when you think you know it all, things change. Our agents also have access to a network of staff and experienced agents who are always there to help, even well after normal office hours (when so much of real estate happens). You’ll find that our agents are eager and willing to learn and have benefited from the focus on hands on training and mentoring that we provide.
