Realtor Training at Davidson Includes Buffini & Company’s Renowned Peak Producers Program and an Unmatched Mentoring Program

We’ve created a series of videos to showcase what makes Davidson different from the average real estate company. Last month, we shared a video on agent earnings here at Davidson Realty, and how our Jacksonville and St. Augustine Realtors average higher average incomes than most Northeast Florida Realtors.  Now we’d like to provide a sneak peek of our training program for new and seasoned agents alike.

In the video, you will see some of our agents learning from the master himself, Brian Buffini of Buffini & Company. Davidson Realty agents participate in Buffini & Company’s Peak Producers training, a 16-week-course that teaches the habits, attitude and skills to be a Peak Producer. Holly Harvey, Closing Manager of the Law Offices of Curtis & Associates, explains the series of discussions she leads to educate agents on contracts, surveys, title policies and more. Lastly, you’ll hear from Davidson agents Maxine Levy and Mirtha Barzaga who are incredible examples of the success that comes from our mentoring program. (more…)
