Without a doubt, real estate education is essential for competing in today’s competitive market. But as a real estate broker, your agents’ needs and preferences can vary dramatically. Sometimes, the best path is to pursue a niche real estate career with a specialized designation. Other times, it is more critical to pick up quick tips on timely real estate topics.

When time is of the essence, a focused microcourse can be the perfect solution. The National Association of REALTORS®’ (NAR) Center for REALTOR® Development (CRD) is already a one-stop shop for online learning, and we are expanding. I am proud to introduce our brand-new education platform:

You will find nearly 100 vital topics on the platform, and 10-minute microcourses developed by top real estate instructors. Later this year, the new site will also provide access to all of NAR’s courses.

Quickly point your agents to short courses on specific topics like budgeting, starting a team, social media strategies and building wealth. New topics will continue to be added—the platform always stays fresh and offers the most desired, indispensable content.

Limited-Time Offer: 5 Complimentary Microcourses

I encourage you to take advantage of our introductory special (up to $90 in value), which ends on July 30, 2021. During this time, you can take any of these microcourses, free of charge:

  • Audio Content Marketing with Marki Lemons-Ryhal
  • A Broker’s Perspective on Teams with Cynthia DeLuca
  • Building Personal and Business Credit with John LeTourneau
  • Green Remodel Hacks with Melisa Camp
  • Business Planning: The Three Deductibles with Brent Lancaster

Please spread the word and encourage others to sample the new courses.

Pricing and Discounts

These quick courses are being offered at a low price ($9/member, $18/non-member per course), with discounted subscription options coming in the future.

Brokers can request a special bulk deal to provide discount codes (for free or discounted access) to multiple agents in their office. It is an excellent way to provide individualized and affordable training support and say, “I care about your success.” For details, inquire at

I also encourage you to share your ideas for new microcourse topics by sending an email to the address above. We are always open to your suggestions.

Supporting Your Success

I hope you will take advantage of this exciting new training tool designed to help you grow your business when business happens. Get started at
