Certified Real Estate Mentor (CREM) Designation Course

Columbus REALTORS® is excited and proud to announce the development of a designation course that teaches a Realtor how to be a real estate mentor. From Columbus REALTORS®' 2017 President, Mic Gordon's initiative, the CREM Task Force, which included members of the Residential Education Committee, as well as, other interested Realtor members, spent more than a year developing the focus, the criteria and the course content for the designation. This is the second course offering and the first one for 2018.

Why Mentoring? Mentoring is and always has been vital for success in the real estate world. Despite its importance, there is very little formal mentor training. This mentorship education is essential to make sure that knowledge, experience, and wisdom are passed down from generation to generation. Mentoring is also a way to address many important topics including"

  • Professionalism in the industry
  • The need to address the high failure rate for newer agents
  • The challenge (and opportunity) for experienced agents near retirement to find and train their replacements.

The CREM designation is award by Columbus REALTORS to those members who meet the experience criteria and complete the two-day course, The Certified Real Estate Mentor.

  • Two-day course, March 7 & 8, 2018
  • March 7 (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) & March 8 (9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) On-site check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.
  • Instructor for the course, Sean Carpenter (National-known Professional Speaker who holds the CREM Designation)
  • Plus, this course has been approved for 12 hours of continuing education credit (as an elective)
