Advocacy

CALL TO ACTION
It is reported that $1.5 trillion federal dollars are allocated annually to states and localities for various purposes and programs, including federal funding for housing, libraries, schools, hospitals, roads, and other federal programs and services as a direct result of Census participation. Not to mention, Census data determine's our state's congressional representation. Let's not miss out, Colorado!

Results are especially important for REALTORS®. This data allows us to analyze demographic information, make industry growth projections, and evaluate generational housing population demands. NAR research teams can use the results to analyze migration trends – identifying potential customers and markets – and to better understand the population of homeowners who have been affected by natural disasters.

    The most recent NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers reports that 87% of buyers identified negotiation skills as a very important quality for their real estate agents. Since another key element of success is developing and sustaining relationships, agents must consider not only the outcome of a negotiation but also their rapport with the other party.

Through highly-interactive role playing activities, you will develop and practice scripts that can prepare you to successfully negotiate with all parties in a transaction, including clients, other agents, and service providers.
