Real Estate And The Net, Course

The Birmingham Commercial REALTORS Council (BCRC) announces that Tom Brander, a distinguished IT & real estate expert, will provide a new technology course for the real estate industry on Thursday, July 26th, at the office of Burr Forman atop the Wells Fargo Tower in downtown Birmingham. Mr. Brander, an ACRE real estate instructor, brings his knowledge-based solutions to BCRC's new educational summer series entitled Transformation Track to Excellence. The Track is designed to bring quality, best-in-class and "new" commercial related educational and training course offerings to Birmingham.

About the Course: "Real Estate and The Net"

Tom Brander.jpgTom Brander, IT & real estate expert, will instruct a new technology course for BCRC's Transformation Track to Excellence on July 26th.
Tom Brander and ACRE (Alabama Center for Real Estate) have collaborated to provide an up to date course on how to maximize the “Internet for Real Estate Professionals”. The course has been approved for three hours of continuing education (CE) by the Alabama Real Estate Commission.

In this fast paced course attendees will be exposed to the “best practices” in internet marketing, including web site use, mobile marketing, personal branding, social networking and much more. The course will also explain by example how to get the most out of various Google services going way beyond the basics of Gmail and Google Docs (now known as Drive). 

What is the “Cloud” and how can it help me? There are many cloud based services available for real estate marketing use at low or no cost. Many, but not all of these tools are provided by Google.

No matter what your level of knowledge, attendees will come away from the course with an array of new tools which can be used both within your firm and with your clients and prospects. This course is intentionally fast paced in order to introduce a number of options and references which will allow attendees to explore further areas of interest to you and your company after the class. In short, if you are an advanced user of technology, you will be exposed to new and different ways of using tools, and if you are just trying to get aboard the technology bandwagon this course will provide a great guided introduction.

Online registration is now open here for all courses including those instructed by Tom Brander.
