West Virginia Continuing Education COURSE
Technology Tools, Trends, and Risk Management (4 hr)
Technology is a tool. Used wisely, it can free up time usually spent on mundane tasks to allow licensees to work at a higher (and higher touch) level of client service. Used poorly, it can waste a lot of time better spent elsewhere and worse—alienate clients, and even put them and the licensee’s reputation—at risk.
Clients and prospective clients want their real estate professional to be accessible and tech-savvy on their behalf. According to a National Association of REALTORS® real estate report, staying up to date on new platforms and systems will remain one of the biggest challenges for brokerages in the coming years. The industry is constantly changing, and technology is a big driver of that change.
