New Training
Class Added!

MRED Training has added a new class: Business Builder

The business builder class will teach you how to find new business opportunities by using connectMLS and Realist in ways you have never thought of.

Learn how to find new clients that are ready to make a real estate decision now, instead of just cold calling or sending out hundreds of mailers; hoping that one generates a lead.

This class is considered ADVANCED and assumes you are very familiar with saving searches, default searches and search templates. It also assumes you understand how to add attributes (fields) in Realist.

Learn more about this new class by contacting the Training Department at 630-955-2754 or
