Recently, RISMedia and the Top 5 in Real Estate Network announced a new addition to the Top 5 program: the inclusion of some of the best speakers and coaches in the industry, coming together to provide better content, better events and better coaching for Top 5 members.
One of the most knowledgeable industry professionals that RISMedia and Top 5 have brought on board is real estate coach and well-known speaker Gee Dunsten, aka “the Real Estate Educator,” who is now able to bring a wealth of experience to Top 5 members, adding further value to the program.
A graduate of the University of Maryland, Dunsten entered the real estate business in 1972. Starting in residential sales, he progressed to general sales manager, then owner/broker in 10 years. In 1986 Dunsten sold his business and returned to his first love…selling real estate and his selling career has crossed the $200 million mark.
Dunsten has been a senior instructor with the Council of Residential Specialists for over 20 years, having served as their 2001 president. In addition to teaching CRS classes, Dunsten is president of Gee Dunsten Seminars, Inc. His hands-on approach to real estate training, with leading-edge ideas and systems, has made him a popular speaker at the NAR Convention and many state and company franchise conventions.
Dunsten has taught in all 50 states as far away as Australia, Chile and New Zealand. With more than 30 years in resort destination sales, Dunsten has co-written and developed the Recreation and Resort Specialist Training Courses and is recognized as a Recreation and Resort Specialist.
Also known as the Real Estate Educator, Dunsten currently writes a monthly featured article for RISMedia’s Real Estate magazine and has been featured on Michael Krisa’s Real Estate Unplugged.
“My grandmother always said, ‘Be careful who you associate with. Whether you choose to hang out with the best or the worst, it’s going to rub off on you,” says Dunsten. “Top 5 represents the cream of the crop. The treasure trove of resources they provide to keep us at the top of our game is invaluable.”
The Top 5 program provides agents with recognition as a member of a group of the most successful agents in the industry—one of the top 5 percent. Dunsten’s objective aligns with the goal of the Top 5 program: to dramatically differentiate the “top” real estate agents from other agents in the profession, allowing them to stand out and giving them support and additional tools they need to succeed.
This alignment of innovative speakers and coaches extends the already expansive list of Top 5 member benefits, creating boundless opportunities for business growth and expansion. In addition to recognition, Top 5 members receive extensive consumer content, a multimedia PR and marketing kit, inclusion in the Top 5 in Real Estate online directory which is featured in Real Estate magazine, the distribution of member press releases, member-to-member networking provided by the Top 5 Institute and more.
