Brokers, Keep Your Office In Order

How do you keep your broker office working efficiently?

A key component to any successful brokerage firm is a well-groomed policy manual. An up-to-date policy manual will help your staff and co-workers know how what is expected of them and how to carry out necessary procedures.  A successful policy manual should:

  • Provide a clear understanding of broker, sales associates, management, and employee relations.
  • Anticipate potential resolutions for controversies before they arise.
  • Eliminate favoritism as all employees must work within the policy.
  • Help staff to function effectively in the event of management absence.

How do I create a policy manual?

Real Estate Training Institute has developed a new course, Practical Brokerage, which outlines the steps to creating a successful Policy Manual. Once you finish this course you will be able to:

  • Implement a working Policy and Procedure manual
  • Describe the employee/employer relationship
  • Apply accounting and recordkeeping practices surrounding trust funds
  • Understand how violations of occupational code are handled

This course is useful for brokers in every state, however, it has the added bonus of being for 3 hours of continuing education in Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, and New York.
