Chief Industry Officer of HomeSmart International, Todd Sumney adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic and helped educate real estate professionals along the way.
As the world went virtual, so did Sumney and his team, creating new marketing and communications pieces for agents to use in their business, including social media graphics, signage and scripts—all to help agents and their clients buy and sell homes virtually. His efforts also included daily training, webinars and online meetings.
"In our industry, the most successful agents serve their customers in every way they can," says Sumney. "The rewards of serving and helping others achieve their goals, whatever they may be, is one of the greatest blessings any of us can experience."
Through his education, Sumney introduced the concept of virtual open houses, tours and showings, opening his classes up to agents both inside and outside the network, filling an educational void to support professionals when business success seemed impossible.
