Agents flocking to coaching seminars

What promises to be one of the biggest gatherings of estate agents ever held in SA will take place later this month in Cape Town, and a similar event is planned just a few days later in Johannesburg. 


Organised by Providence Coaching Systems, MortgageSA and Property Genie, the day-long seminars are each expected to draw up to 700 top agents all eager to gain fresh insights and business tools that will give them an edge in their markets. 


The events are part of a national roadshow that is already generating huge excitement in the industry, with 450 agents having been drawn to its Durban stop in May, and more than 700 to a session at Midrand's Vodaworld. 


Steven Johnstone of Providence Coaching Systems says: "The future of any real estate business lies in understanding the dynamics that are going to affect the industry in the short, medium and long term, and the combination of companies that is hosting these seminars is equipped to offer agents a whole new toolbox with which to do business. 


"The benefits of these sessions are multiple, in that delegates also get to network with likeminded professionals. After all, building a referral network is one of the best ways to do business in real estate - and one of the best prospects for referrals could be another estate agent in a nearby area." 


The roadshow will reach Cape Town on 26 June and Johannesburg on 29 June, and then it will be returning to Durban in August. 


"We had such a great response in Durban that we've committed to returning

there quarterly. The real estate companies there have seen the value that we

can add to their business, and have virtually demanded that we return," says



The roadshow is being advertised in The Property Professional, and further

information about registration can be obtained from Providence Coaching

Systems, on 021 700 4819.

Things you should consider before upgrading to a new home

The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
