This will be a small group discussion where I lead the conversation about becoming a Realtor, such as education, fees, timing, etc. We also talk about what it’s like to be a Realtor. And, lastly, what it’s like to be a Realtor at Keller Williams Realty. I am currently a producing Realtor here at Keller Williams and also the Productivity Coach who guides Realtors through their first year in the business.
