Here For The Party

Well, maybe not a “party” but we are all about making events fun! 

While helping you become your own successful CEO is our number one goal… we like to have a little fun while getting there! Whether it’s a training, convention, holiday party, office gathering, or just a normal day, we like to always add some fun. Getting to know your colleagues on a personal level and having an enjoyable and happy work environment can make or break your choice of a brokerage. Our goal is to create an environment and culture that is attractive and draws people towards, not scares them away. After all, we are real people with real goals, that like to have real big fun!

There is always a big entertainer for the Sunshine Kids Benefit concert and tons of smaller events throughout the 3-day span. You won’t regret registering and investing in going to the national sales convention!

BOOK CLUBS

Some of our offices love to take their together-ness to a whole other level and they host a Book Club! Wine may or may not be involved, but what can be guaranteed is a way to connect with your peers and learn how to be a better business owner along the way.

PARTY IN A BOX

We wanted a way {or excuse} for each of our offices to have some fun throughout the year. So we came up with Party in a Box, complete with activities and ideas for you to party with your fellow office-mates. Whether it’s a virtual Cinco de Mayo to see who can make the best-looking margarita or a hearty pot-luck style Thanksgiving feast, you’re sure to enjoy the company of your peers and have fun doing it!

GETTING STARTED

From the very start, we want to make sure you have the training you need to build a successful real estate business. There is an array of different classes, sessions and trainings in place from one-on-one to group settings for you to take advantage of.

ONBOARDING

Our onboarding specialists work with you and others in a small group setting to make sure all of your technologies and gadgets are synced up and ready to work! From printers to Cab Corner, they are there to help you get it all set up!

BHU

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices University (BHU) is our version of the coursework needed to “graduate” and have a successful career with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices as your business partner! This four-week course covers everything from the tools available to negotiating tactics.

GETTING CONNECTED

Before you kick off your classes with BHU, Getting Connected is our version of “orientation”. It’s in Getting Connected where you get to see the faces of the different departments, such as Marketing, Preferred Lending Services and Commercial!

CEO SESSIONS

We truly believe in our message that we want you to be the best CEO of your small business you can be. So we introduced our CEO Sessions, which is a total of eight round-table discussions based around a business building topic. You are invited to a certain session based on your experience, so you are among like-producing agents for a richer conversation.

MASTERMINDS

Our mastermind sessions are invite-only with only one spot reserved per office. These agents are among the top and most-seasoned agents and they discuss initiatives and ideas to help propel our company forward!

MARKETING UNDERGROUND

A WEEK OF FULL-FLEDGED BRAIN POWER AND CREATIVITY

One week a year, the marketing department {see them below!} gets together and locks themselves in a room. We call this week “Marketing Underground.” It’s a week where the marketing department {and a few other friends} plan out the entirety of the next year and cannot be found… because we’re underground, get it? This includes our brand voice and brand image and our overarching goal that everything is working toward.

Great ideas have been born from this session. Things like our Buyer and Seller kits, the BHHS Swag Shop, and the CEO Workshop were all products of this weeklong brainstorm. That’s just the tip of the iceberg!

By the end of the week, the walls are lined with bright posterboards with words, phrases, and ideas scribbled about. The table is littered with laptops, snacks, notebooks and coffee cups galore. There is a sense of accomplishment for what we’ve put together, but then reality kicks in and we realize the ambitious project list we have created. This can seem overwhelming, but we love it and THRIVE thinking of how every single project, social media post, and initiative will push our agents and brand to the next level.

Marketing is a HUGE part of your job as a real estate agent. With all of the tools and resources we provide you and the ever-evolving digital marketing world, we know it can become overwhelming. That’s where our Marketing Roadshows come into play. The marketing and education department teams up and makes their way around to our offices in our 6 different counties for a day of marketing training with an opportunity to sit down one-on-one with a member of the marketing or education department! Roadshows are something you do not want to miss and happen twice a year!

OFFICE TRAININGS

ONE ON ONE COACHING

No need to pay for an outside coach, you’ve got your very own in your office… your Market President! They are committed to your success and create a personalized coaching plan that makes sure you are on an upward path of growth! Whether you are new to the business, taking the next steps, or a highly experienced Top Producer our team can help guide your future success!

MENTORSHIP

When it comes to being part of a championship team, embracing diversity is an important part… especially when it comes to real estate. That is why we have experienced mentors available for agents who are interested in exploring different business strategies. This gives you the ability to work side by side with an experienced agent who can guide you in applying all of the education, tools, and systems we offer into your business routine!

GROUP COACHING

Join in on the conversation and learn together with a group coaching session led by your Market President in your office! These sessions will allow you to collaborate with agents so that you can share ideas and grow your knowledge, together. Collaboration is key! Let’s work together so that in the end your customers receive the expertise they deserve!

IN OFFICE TRAINING

We know that having a large geographical footprint is a benefit to agents who help their customers throughout the Tampa Bay MSA and beyond. Our goal is to choose our office locations in places that are convenient for you, your customer, and the general public! That also means training opportunities need to be as convenient as possible for every agent & office too. We know it isn’t always ideal to travel to our South Tampa office where the bulk of our training courses are held, so we bring the Education Department to your offices! Be sure to keep an eye out for when these training sessions come to your office.

OFFICE SALES MEETINGS

Stay in the loop with everything at your office’s monthly sales meetings! Keep updated on market stats, where your office stands in the market, learn about a marketing or tech tool, and hear important company announcements. BONUS: you get to know your colleagues better by coming in and coming around!

TECH TRAINING

Technology is crucial to the day to day success of our business so agents need a company that is not playing catch up with this ever evolving part of the industry. They need a partner that is always training the agents forward so they can lean into their growth instead of watching business pass them by. Be sure to stay up to date with our training calendar so you don’t miss a beat!
