Spring is in the air! And while Spring Break, St. Patrick's Day, and March Madness, have our social calendars filled this month, let's not forget this season should bring a sense of reflection and renewed energy to our lives as well. While mother nature transforms and changes colors around you, why not give yourself and your portfolio a new look this spring? We're not quite talking about retail therapy. Instead, this month, consider taking a look at your development goals for the year and adding more expertise to your portfolio.
Whether you're learning a new real estate topic or getting a designation in an expert area, you and your clients will benefit from your professional development. Haven't thought about continuing education just yet? Now's the perfect time to get started. Check out what we have in store this month at the ABoR Academy.
