Agents to share business tips at Perth event

More open and honest conversations between real estate professionals are needed in order to create better agents and a stronger industry, a leading trainer has said.

According to Peter Fletcher, trainer and organiser of REBarCamp, open forums that allow agents to learn from one another is the key to a better industry.

“REBarCamp encourages agents to come together and share what they know,” he told Real Estate Business.

“The camps attract people who want to learn but also who are generous [with] what they know. Combine those two values and you get a space that really encourages people to share and develop.”

Following successful events in Sydney, Brisbane, and Gold Coast, REBarCamp will be hosting an event in Perth.

REBarCamps follow the same format as BarCamps in the tech industry, where people who have a similar interest gather with the aim of freely sharing ideas and exchanging knowledge.

This year's event will be held on Friday, October 19, at the Balmoral Hotel in East Victoria Park. The opening session - traditionally used for participants to set the agenda for the day - starts at 9:30am. A number of concurrent 45-minute sessions will be held over the course of the day. 

According to real estate agent and member of the organising team, Lee Baston, REBarCamp is an excellent place for agents to sharpen their skills and learn from one another.

"I learned so much from last year's REBarCamp that I jumped at the chance to help make this year’s event happen," she said.

"In my years as an agent I've never experienced such generous sharing and support as I have at BarCamp."

Agents wishing to attend can register online at www.rebarcamp.com.au. There is a small cover charge to help defray costs.
