Coldwell Banker Schmitt hosts seminar to help agents

Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate Company recently hosted a seminar for its Realtors at Hawk's Cay Resort with real estate motivational speaker Mike Ferry, who presented a three-hour overview of the characteristics that define the most successful real estate agents.

"On their own, it can take agents years to realize and act on the lessons that Mike quickly imparts in his workshops," said Coldwell Banker Schmitt President and Broker Brian Schmitt.

Ferry is the founder of The Mike Ferry Organization, a leading Real Estate coaching and training company. After a career of selling homes and being one of the top agents in his home state, he launched his own company and is now recognized by the National Association of Realtors as one of the most influential people in the profession, according to a press release.
