The Able Agent will make four online Inspiring Property Professionals courses freely available to OnTheMarket agents over the next 12 months. Each course is aimed at agents at different stages of their career, supporting new entrants to the profession, as well as helping more experienced staff to develop their skills.
These courses are led by Charlotte Jeffrey-Campbell (LinkedIn profile). Able Agent offers a wide range of online training courses and qualifications for estate and letting agents.
The first free course is “Training for business growth” and is aimed at agency staff with less than two years of experience.
Agents taking the course will learn how to spot business opportunities, hone prospecting skills and operate proactively to achieve success in a changing property market. The three-hour course consists of 16 lessons, covering such topics as guiding agents on registering buyers and tenants to their mailing lists, cross selling mortgages, and prospecting to grow a database.
Participants have two months to complete the modules and can participate in regular catch-ups with The Able Agent team during the course, while business owners will be able to monitor the progress of their trainees.
“Through the upcoming courses, our agents will be able to upskill and sharpen multiple areas of their businesses as the market continues to change,” said Julie Emmerson, head of agent commercial partnerships at OnTheMarket.
“Now more than ever, agents need to do all they can to really stand out and differentiate themselves, and this training will help so many to do just that,” said Jeffrey-Campbell.
OnTheMarket agents can nominate branch staff to take part in the first free “Training for Business Growth” course until 28 October using this link.
Earlier this month, OnTheMarket.com published its financial results for H1 2022. They showed growth in both total revenue and average revenue per agent, but profits fell.
