Scout trains each agent (new and experienced) on the Scout way. This material has been created through Jonathan's experience over the past 15 years. Here are a few things new agents have said about our most recent training course:
Going through this training as a new agent was invaluable. Each day, an insecurity of mine was squashed by the knowledge gained. I started the week feeling unsure of myself in this new career, but left empowered and confident. — Tom Young
Scout's training was very well done. It covered everything from basic to in-depth, and new information regarding the real estate industry. Beyond that, it was very individual growth focused, while at the same time showing the need to play a role in the team atmosphere that Scout cultivates. It's a great way to receive the tools needed to succeed, and also visualize and plan for the upcoming year. — Thomas Summers
