"Learn How to Connect and Become a Better Communicator” - Jet Xavier
When we communicate, we verbalise a thought/feeling/need and ‘code’ it. For example, there are a million different ways to say “pass me the salt”, politely or rudely, quickly or slowly, the list goes on. Communication is a skill that can be learned, which means you can become an expert! A lot of good communicators follow a set of guidelines when interacting with the consumer. They think carefully about how to listen and speak to clients most effectively to provide the best possible service. In this session you will learn how to become better specialists in your chosen field and ensure you maximize your own potential in the way you connect and communicate with your customers to improve the service you are offering to clients. .
9:00am to 10:00am (1 hour)
“Enhance Your Customers Experience” - Tara Bradbury
Customer experience is one of the hottest topics in the world of Real Estate. Customer experience is the overall quality of all the interactions a consumer has with a company and its products and services. These includes all aspects of real estate, from pre- and post-sale interactions to property management, and can be either direct—e.g., when a customer calls the Property management department—or indirect, such as when a customer reads a social media post about another person’s interaction with the agency. We must learn to listen with intent when connecting with our customers and in this session you will leave with a better understanding of how you can enhance the client’s experience to improve best practice in real estate.
