Coldwell Banker Bain offers an extensive course catalog for broker education, and without a doubt our brokers favorite class is the “Battle of the Brokers”. We offer this course as either a 4-hour or a 7-hour continuing education course and it is always informative, entertaining and educational. During this course, our panel of experts discuss and debate the purchase and sale agreement, addenda and supporting documents required for real estate transactions. Our panelist will often play devil’s advocate which makes for a very lively discussion but in the end, our moderator brings the discussion back around to best practices to ensure that our brokers are well informed when representing clients.
Our past course was expertly hosted by our panel moderator, Bob Call. Our panelist included Principal Managing Brokers, Barbara Hindle, Capitol Hill, Michelle Van Tassell, Edmonds, Richard Fulton, Kirkland, Michael Winkler, Issaquah and our attorney, Mark D. Schedler, of Williams Kastner. And the panelists change, rotating Managing Brokers by region.

Here is what our broker Steve Burman had to say about this class.
“Just a quick note to say what an excellent session you facilitated today. You and the panel did a great job. These are one of the best things we do as a company in my opinion. This one was particularly good. I’ve been with Bain for 18 years, and I always learn plenty at these events. They should be mandatory for ALL of our Brokers.”
