Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) Designation

This new two-day course is an interactive experience to help negotiators elevate their game. On Day 1, a full spectrum of tips, tools, techniques and advantages will be covered so negotiators can get effective results for their client. On Day 2, members will have the opportunity to put them into use in real-world field scenarios. Understanding the tactics and techniques is one thing, but learning how to recognize them and using them effectively requires practice. These field scenarios provide the foundational experience and practice negotiators need to master so they can effectively advocate for their clients.

What you will learn:

  • How to prepare for a negotiation
  • How to effectively work with trade-offs
  • How to compromise without giving essential components away
  • How to reach a resolution that your client can find acceptable

You’ll will soon realize that the “win-win” objective is merely a perception. Power comes from leveraging your options and alternatives so the client has the best possible choices to consider and knows what the downside could be for each choice presented.

Zillow Zestimates: A trustworthy source for St. Louis homebuyers and sellers?

Zillow Zestimates: A trustworthy source for St. Louis homebuyers and sellers?

St. Louis REALTORS® is launching a campaign strongly urging the public NOT to trust online real estate estimate websites, like Zillow and Trulia. Click here to view a news release detailing our position with documented proof of flagrant inaccuracies regarding online estimates. In addition, we emphasize why the public can trust a St. Louis REALTOR® member to provide accurate data, based on facts, not fiction.

Is it important to be accurate and have the right data when you are buying or selling a house? The answer: An unequivocal, “Yes.” But, if you are Zillow pushing consumers to view your online offerings, the answer is a “Zestimate” or a “guesstimate” is acceptable. St. Louis REALTORS® don’t think so, and you shouldn’t either.

We encourage you to share the information below with your sphere of influence.
