CBHarper Sales Agents Achieve Smart Home Certification

Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® hosted an unprecedented event at their 2016 REALTOR® Rally that empowered nearly 250 of its Sales Agents to achieve a Smart Home Certification.

Leading the industry, Coldwell Banker teamed up with CNET to definitively define “Smart Home.”, thereby setting the standard for labelling a home as “smart”. In our article, “Smart Homes, Defined.” we outlined the definition that is representative of the best smart home technology.

By completing this course Sales Agents will now be able to communicate to sellers and buyers how smart home technology can impact their lives and their homes sales. We applaud the recent participation of these real estate professionals in completing the Coldwell Banker University’s (CBU) Smart Home Technology course. This was provided through a partnership with CEDIA, on-site a Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Annual REALTOR® Rally.

Congratulations to everyone who now has the smart home designation. Here is the complete list of graduates, and let’s all give them a round of applause! We wish you much success as you move forward into the era of smart homes.

REALTOR® Rally 2016 – It’s A Wrap!

November 11th — Wow. Awesomeness. We have a true love of what we do here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® and the passion to share it with one another; but more importantly with everyone who has a place to call home.

REALTOR® Rally is a culmination of strategic planning and the desire to create an immersive learning experience. Classes taught by our valued partners, Sales Agents and Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC., guests were the hub of what made this event such a success. A framework of vendors brought their “A” game to share services, tools and ideas to equip attendees with a kickstart of business for 2017.

It is really tough to formulate into words what an experience this was for all of us. Rather than describe each class, amount of attendees and the usual stats, we wanted to share the photos. Our team of photographers were on hand to capture as many moments as we could. BUT, some of these photos were taken by our agents, employees and guests who shared their experiences on social media.

Thank you to everyone who attended. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we’re already planning for next level awesomeness experience.

Enjoy these inside the event glimpses:

A very special announcement was made, one that immortalizes Herbert Harper, D’Ann’s late husband of almost 45 years. There is nothing more important in the CBHarper culture, than family. So to both honor and celebrate that family D’Ann and Leesa have put together a scholarship fund in Herbert Harper’s name available only to the employees, agents and their children. More on this to come…
