New Virtual Pro Education Package


Residential Real Estate Council

For Immediate Release

Chicago- (April, 20, 2018) -- The Residential Real Estate Council (RRC), formerly the Council of Residential Specialists, today announced the launch of its newest educational program for real estate agents, the Virtual Pro education package, the most convenient, flexible way to earn the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation*, network with other real estate agents and receive the highest-quality education the industry has to offer—all from the comfort of office or home.

Students will get the value of RRC’s live classroom courses complete with interactive lessons from top instructors in residential real estate, and discussion with fellow course participants.

“Virtual Pro provides a direct route to earning the Council’s CRS Designation and offers courses conveniently delivered to students online. Virtual Pro is an ideal way to offer real estate agents education in a format that adapts well with their busy schedules,” says Lana Vukovljak, CEO, RRC.

The Virtual Pro Education Package includes two 8-credit online courses, broken down into shorter chunks, and spanning a total of nine weeks. Both courses are adapted from face-to-face classroom courses and enhanced to take full advantage of the online platform.

“Virtual Pro not only offers the most up-to-date and highest quality education, but also provides students valuable networking and referral opportunities, both online during the courses and afterward, when they gain access to the CRS Referral Network with their CRS Designation,” says Dale Carlton, Virtual Pro instructor.

Students can choose to join the Council at a discounted rate.

The Virtual Pro education package (with or without membership) includes:

Course 1: 7 Things Successful Agents Do Differently

8 credits

The first course demonstrates what separates great agents from average ones. Course take-aways include: specific strategies and marketing systems to move real estate agents and their businesses to the next stage of success, both professionally and financially. Students also learn to organize their real estate career like a business, leverage market statistics, plan for retirement and implement marketing efforts to make these things happen. Agents of all experience levels will discover how to take their business to a higher level.

Course 2: Zero to 60 Home Sales a Year (and Beyond)

8 credits

The second Virtual Pro course provides knowledge and tools needed to accelerate sales for both agents who are just starting out and veterans looking to jump-start their businesses. Take-aways include: new methods for marketing and bringing in a continuous flow of business, and creating a plan to turn sales goals into reality.

Program Schedule: April 30 to June 26
