Announcing our newest program - ACCELERATOR Boot Camp!

Start Date: September 14
End Date: October 19
Time: Every Friday, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Instructor/Moderator: Kim Hedrick

It’s a common misconception that a new agent only needs licensing education in order to be successful.

The truth is, there are strict limitations on what can and cannot be taught in a licensing course. What nearly all licensing courses lack is exactly what Real Estate Accelerator provides. This intensive six week program and 4-week continued coaching program is designed to teach you the specific activities an agent needs to perform on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis in order to operate a successful real estate business. This program will arm you with business building skills and critical operating activities utilized by the most successful real estate agents in the business.
