The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

FREE Training and Support Calendar Is Ready for April

Here's some classes, trainings, and special guests I've scheduled for April. There are still a few more to add but hopefully this will be a good start to get some of you going and on-track this month. Many of these have been either suggested, requested, or are back by popular demand.

I hope you can find some time in your busy schedules to come join us.

If the class you're wanting or needing is not on this calendar, please let me know so I get it created and added to the schedule. Our most popular and most attended classes have been suggested by ActiveRain and Zillow members.

Still learning about Zillow. I've heard it's a great place for Realtors to get business.

Good morning sir,

There are plenty of classes to take this month and now I have to check my schedule.  But I will be taking a couple of them.

Excellent thanks Brad, see you in AC

Posted by Gerry Michaels, GettysburgGerry Social Meida (Glasswork Media Arts) over 8 years ago

Thanks you guys, it's a lot of work to create and setting these free webinars up. 

Many of them are requested and suggested by folks here on AR and over on my other blog.  So far we have about 50-100 people on average attending each session.  We have room for 1000 seats so that's my new goal.

If you have some classes you'd like to see on the calendar, let me know and I'll get them added.  

Thanks again, I hope these webinars will help you and your business.  :-)))

Lyrics of Teacher, Teacher by .38 Special are playing in my head...

"Just when I thought I finally learned my lesson well,
There was more to this than meets the eye.
And for all the things you taught me, only time will tell,
If I'll be able to survive..."

FREE always fits in the budget. I may have to check out a few of the WordPress sessions, and I'd love to hear what Krisstina has to say. Best of all ... no dress code at Zillow Academy!

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 8 years ago

Gerry - headed out in the morning, see toy there!  :-)

Gary - there is so many classes and so much to learn, especially about Zillow.  Most people are shocked after they see some of the things we go over and share at the Zillow specific webinars.

Mike - love 38 Special and southern rock.  Come on by and you'll get some of our southern hospitality at these sessions.

Len - awesome!!  and Thanks.

Michele - some of these classes can actually save you time in the long run, hope you'll try and make a few. 

John  - it is a busy schedule, but our life is only as busy as our Busyness Business lets us be.  <Big Smile>

what a fantastic training calendar, keep up the good work.

Posted by Mark Schweller, Building Communities; One Home at a Time (A. Meadows Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Hey Brad,  How have you been doing??  Great Calendar!! - Question - I was on the agent directory part of Zillow and notice agents in my area have many more listings on Zillow than they do in the MLS.  Does Zillow have any rules about keeping the information current and correct?

Posted by Kimberly Thurm, Broker / Relocation Consultant ABR, CRS, GRI, SFR (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff, Naperville, IL) over 8 years ago

So Glad that I stumbled upon this post.  I had no idea such resources were available for a newbie like me. Thank so much for putting together such a great schedule.

Posted by Laura Borja Mortgage Professional, Specializing in VA and FHA Loans (Supreme Lending NMLS 2129) over 8 years ago

Lisa - we're happy to have you as our guest, thanks.

KWR - thank you, I'll try my best!!

Hey Kim - doing great. Hope you are as well. We ask that agents do try to keep Zillow up to date by making sure the source that provides their listings is kept up to date. Sometimes agents forget to update their MLS's and other sites that syndicate their listings. We do take this area of Zillow very seriously and are always working to improve this and educate and support agents and Brokers on how to do this.

There's a class on the calendar above that's called... "But Zillow Says..." and we cover this in great detail. 

Laura - I hope to see you at some of these, I think you'll get some great information and tips from some of our guest speakers and topics that are being shared this month. Come join us, you're always welcome anytime. :-)

Great offering of info.  We are looking into the wordpress blog ( have one, but not doing much, more on AR) and will join in when you post the link. Thanks Brad

Posted by Dick and Dixie Sells, Realtors, Tampa Bay Florida Homes For Sale (Sells Real Estate, LLC) over 8 years ago

Dick and Dixie - I'll have that link up early this week.  It's Sunday morning and I'm headed to Atlantic City to spend a couple days with all the RainCamp folks. WOOHOO!!  Looking forward to having you guys join us for that webinar.  Thanks. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Good morning Brad,

It looks like you have another great month of training, now all I have to do is go to my calendar and see what I will be able to attend.

Posted by Don Rogers, Realtor, Broker, CDPE, GRI, OnullFallon MO & St Charles County MO homes (Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield) over 8 years ago

Hi Brad - The wide breadth of training you have at Zillow reminds me of the varied topics that AR University had when it was started.  Unfortunately, I don't recall that AR ever did record the sessions that I could not attend live.  Do you archive the Zillow sessions?

Posted by FN LN over 8 years ago

Hey Don - looking forward to to being part of YOUR schedule and calendar!!  :-)

Hi Marc - I remember starting the AR Universoty too, there was no hosting or servers for the recorded sessions unfortunately, that may have changed when I handed it over to Steven, I'm not sure.  I do record most of our webinars and make them available at the virtual campus. There is a "webinar" tab at the top of the zillow academy page.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

I always learn so much from you and the webinars...looking forward to attending as many of these as I can!

Posted by Kristin Johnston - REALTOR®, Giving Back With Each Home Sold! (RE/MAX Realty Center ) over 8 years ago

Wow! What a busy month for you. Thanks for sharing the schedule.

Posted by Mike Yeo (3:16 team REALTY) over 8 years ago

Kristin, just know that I learn from you as well and appreciate all that you share too!  Thanks.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Mike - one of my favorite things to do are these webinars.  I love being able to help others with finding answers and solutions to their daily Real Estate challenges and technology issues.  So to me it feels like I'm not really busy at all.  BTW - Tell Loreena I said hi.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Brad, I am just now realizing that you are connected with Zillow.  That's terrific.  I love this calendar, I did not realize you even offered classes.  Wow-I'm so excited.  Thanks so much!
