Total Real Estate Training, the organisers of The Australasian Real Estate Conference (AREC) have teamed up with highly respected real estate coach Tom Panos to provide sales agents with a series of free webinars to continue their online learning and education during the Coronavirus pandemic.

AREC and Tom Panos’ Real Estate Gym will run four free weekly live online webinars during May and featuring the most successful and dynamic residential agents, often lauded as the legends in real estate, to share their insights and strategies in these uncertain times.

John McGrath, Founder of AREC explained, “We’re learning so much in this new environment and one of the key lessons for us all is around collaboration and partnerships. So Tom and the AREC team were keen to partner on this unique digital event where we can bring the best real estate talent in the country into the lounge rooms and home offices for free.”

Mr McGrath added, “The real estate world is changing so rapidly, real time information and advice delivered in this digital format is critical. As agents and educators, we’ve had to pivot and adapt quickly. And just as we saw many high profile successful people come together during disasters we’ve had to face in recent times, the elite of the real estate industry were quick to step up when we asked them if they would consider participating. All have generously donated their time to help others in the real estate space navigate their way through these challenging times.”

Mr. Panos said that coaching and mentoring during these challenging times is important for the industry and how agents interact with their clients.

“These live online webinars are designed to give those in the industry insights and strategies to continue their business at a unique time when many have had to work in isolation. That is a new experience for them.

“We have designed four events of one hour each Monday that will showcase live conversations with the best agents in Australia so everyone can access this information. All they need is an internet connection and they can learn from the best at no cost,” Mr Panos added.

“The AREC team and Tom have worked so closely over the last decade it was an easy collaboration to get off the ground quickly. We don’t want real estate participants to leave the industry when a few insights or words of encouragement could keep them rolling while this passes,” Mr McGrath said.

Nichola Byrne, General Manager of Total Real Estate Training, said “While we had to postpone AREC2020 and other training conferences as a result of COVID-19, we can use the latest technology to deliver world class training and education. In this instance we are utilising the platform provided through LinkedIn Events, and are excited to be the first in our industry to leverage this new tool and solution as we adapt during this pandemic. The real estate industry as we know it has changed, however education will always be a primary resource for agents who need to be at the top of their game. Now more than ever, they need to be agile as they adjust to how they transact properties and serve their clients.”

Ms Byrne adds, “AREC is known for its desire to share information for the benefit of our industry. We are proud of this legacy, and believe it is important to continue doing that in whatever way we can.”
