Training is provided by successful, veteran real estate practitioners, including Keller Williams'# 1 sales agent Leonardo Pareja, who offer decades of experience in the REO industry. These practitioners interact with asset managers who regularly assign REO business throughout the country.  Attendees will be exposed to great new marketing techniques, how to leverage online tools and technology for maximum results, discover the importance of industry data and how it applies to their local offices, how to diversify their portfolios, improve scorecards from servicers and clients, set up and run a REO office to support corporate clientele and professionally supply thorough broker price opinion services.
