All after August 16
$289
If available

Class Overview:

This course was created to help brokers, owners, and managers understand how important recruiting is to having a successful real estate office or company. CRB sets the standard for leading edge brokerage learning.

At the end of this course you will have the tools necessary to implement a strategy to become an active and successful recruiter. You will also understand the importance of retention, or “re-recruiting” your current agents. And you will have a great understanding of the importance of “de-hiring” those agents who should not be a part of your organization.

  • Why Recruiting is Vital to Success
  • Creating a Value Proposition – Why should someone want to work with you?
  • Your Company Culture
  • The Recruiting Process
  • Identifying and Targeting the Right Team Members
  • The Interview and Hiring Decision
  • Retention Processes
  • De-Hiring

Quick Facts:

  • You do not need a broker’s license to earn the CRB designation.
  • Managing a team, personal assistant or office for at least one year meets the management
    experience required for designation.

*Designation recognized by NAR

CRB Designation Requirements:

EARN YOUR CRB in 3-2-1!

The CRB Designation Program and the ENTIRE menu of courses has been reinvented and refreshed to meet the professional development needs of today’s broker, owner and manager.  Earning the CRB Designation has never been simpler!

CORE REQUIREMENTS TO EARN THE DESIGNATION

  • Obtain or hold active membership in the National Association of REALTORS® as a REALTOR® or REALTOR®-Associate (US Only).
  • Have at least one year of management experience prior to designation (may be obtained while pursuing the CRB Designation as a Candidate).  For a complete description of qualifying management experience, review the CRB Designation Rules & Regulations.
  • Submit a management resume outlining your experience.
  • A Candidate must complete the Designation Program in four years.
  • Complete and submit the Designation Application Form and one-time Designation Fee (submitted ONLY once you have completed ALL the requirements).
  • Complete course and elective requirements.
  • Submit the Designation Application with one-time fee.
  • Maintain active CRB Designee status — $210 each subsequent year but your FIRST YEAR IS FREE!

The REALTOR® Action Fund

When it comes to advocacy REALTORS® band together as the REALTOR® Party, which is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® working to protect and promote homeownership and private property rights.

Simply put, the REALTOR® Party promotes policies and candidates that support your ability to do business, but we need your help. You can help by INVESTING in the REALTOR® Action Fund, (RAF). With the resources provided by the REALTOR® Action Fund we fight threats of costly rules, taxes, and regulations such as proposed taxes on services (your commission), fireplace retrofits, and point of sale regulations.

The REALTOR® Action Fund Victories

  • SCCAOR defeated a Bay Area wide fireplace replacement mandate that would have cost your clients on average over two thousand dollars at the point of sale.
  • SCCAOR defeated a City of Santa Clara proposed ordinance that would have discriminated against renters that are unrelated and share a household, and placing a burden on property owners to enforce.
  • Last year we defeated a tax on conventional mortgages that would have cost the average California homebuyer over $8,000 on the cost of their mortgage.
  • Thanks to the RAF we have been able to defeat service taxes,that would have taxed your commission.
  • RAF has helped us defend the mortgage interest deduction from being eliminated.
