We have to take our hats off to ABD Development, the company developing one of central Florida's master planned communities, on the Walt Disney World side of Orlando about 30 minutes to everything.
They have made a commitment to local Realtors to help them become better all around agents, by choosing an education-driven new homes sales training co-broker program that has turned into a win-win-win for all parties.
"The developer is happy, the agents are happy, and our six builders are happy,' according to Sales and Marketing Director Matthew (Matt) Brown.
The developer sponsored four seminars through May of this year and has six more planned.
What is Providence doing that is making so much fuss?
Brown chose to offer the local Realtor community a three-hour seminar approved by the Florida Real Estate Commission for three hours continuing education credit.
"What we like is the fact that the course is written from the agent's perspective, not the homebuilder's perspective.
"Our approach is resulting in 'first day' close out for participation. Agents are learning how to be better agents by adding new home services to their business, and what they are learning helps them sell both more new homes and resales," Brown said.
