Made possible with funding from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, AREA has embarked on a mission to improve the industry's understanding of true professional excellence.
Through research firm InsightsWest, AREA polled more than 1000 consumers, and 500 REALTORS® - using direction pulled from consumer focus group and key stakeholder interviews - to gather a statistically relevant benchmark of current perceptions on our industry. These findings will be used to develop a set of applicable, measurable, and attainable standards of professional excellence for every Alberta REALTOR®.
Throughout the summer, we will be engaging with members throughout the province to share these research insights, using valuable REALTOR® input and feedback to solidify these new standards. These standards will then form the basis of member training tools geared towards achieving and maintaining professional excellence.
Detailed findings of the consumer research can be found here.
AREA thanks all members who participated in the Defining Service Excellence survey, and would like to congratulate Shannon Carlson, of Re/Max Results in Barrhead, AB for winning the random draw prize of a Beats Pill portable speaker.
