A hair-dresser has to take more education than a real estate agent to become licensed



Andrew Duncan talked this past weekend about changes coming to the real estate industry.  New standards and regulations with TRID are going to massively change how real estate agents help clients through real estate closings and how the processes for closings will be changing dramatically starting in October.  Arnie and Diaz from Waterstone Mortgage and Joellyn Robles from Hillsborough Title contributed to this conversation.

Recent articles have shown that a real estate agent has to only go through 70 or hours of education while a cosmetologist or hair-dresser goes through several hundred to become licensed to work with customers.  This makes no sense considering the financial impact of hiring the right real estate agent (or the wrong one) can have.  Unfortunately, there is a considerable lack of education and experience and many real estate agents are not prepared for these changes and the shifting in the market.  Agents at The Duncan Duo go through several hundred extra hours of training per year (before and after starting to work with clients) with a focused training boot camp as well as ongoing training about industry norms, standards and changes.   We strongly believe that more education should be required in order for someone to become a licensed real estate agent.  We encourage you to interview your agents, look them up online and compare them to see what kind of sales experience/reviews they have on Zillow or Trulia, and make sure you’re working with someone full-time that knows of all the new regulations, changes and shifting of the market.
