Four Key Reasons Why Successful Realtors
Choose RE/MAX River City
River City Associates are some of the top performing in the industry, but the key differentiator is they are your colleagues and friends, not your competition. We all learn from one another, continuing to lead the industry in professionalism and reputation, and have fun doing it.
With three locations in the central south side of Edmonton and Beaumont, client's perception is that you're able to market homes in all areas of greater Edmonton. Offices located in specific periphery areas of the city can be seen to be neighborhood experts for that small area, but that their REALTORs don't have market knowledge in other areas of the city.
River City Associates can use any office location at any time. Office hours at South location are Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, with full access at anytime by our Associates. Beaumont is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm. The Old Strathcona office are Monday to Friday from 9am to 9pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11am - 4pm to provide you, and your clients with better service and direct access for key pickup/drop-offs, meetings and more.
With a multitude of training opportunities, they options are extensive, but also customized to where you are in your business. Weekly training sessions run every Tuesday covering various topics, Associate roundtables monthly to share ideas amongst your colleagues, sales volume targeted roundtable discussions for those under $100,000 in annual sales, those from $100,000 up to $250,000 and those over $250,000.
We are certified and offer training programs from top names in the real estate training industry in North America, including: Brian Buffini & Co. and Richard Robbins. This is in addition to the extensive video and online training tools database through RE/MAX International and Western Canada.
